Exilis® Skin Tightening & Body Sculpting

Exilis®, offered at our Texas locations, is a fast, safe, and effective way to tighten skin and sculpt the body without surgery. Our bodies over time undergo many changes and the skin specialists at Suzanne Bruce and Associates now have another tool in their armament to leave you looking fit, healthy, and youthful. This FDA-approved, clinically proven device will tighten and tone your skin without surgery. Exilis is ideal for treating wrinkles, skin laxity, and shaping the face and body. Common areas of treatment include the eye area, around the mouth, chin area, jaw line, décolleté, abdomen, back, arms, legs, knees, and ankles.

To find out more about Exilis and other available options for skin tightening and body sculpting in Houston, request a consultation or call our office at (713) 850-0240.

How It Works

Exilis delivers highly controlled heat to tissue, while cooling the surface of the skin, by using focused radio frequency (RF) technology for measurable cosmetic results in just 4 comfortable treatment sessions. This device provides the following 2 improvements:

  • Skin tightening. Exilis can help tighten aging skin by heating the collagen in the lower layers of the skin. This process causes the deep collagen structures of your skin to tighten immediately so you’ll see firmer skin right after treatment. Over the long term, that heat energy also stimulates future collagen production, so your skin will gradually tighten further giving you a more youthful appearance.
  • Body sculpting. Exilis can also help sculpt and reduce fat in desired areas by targeting the fat right above the muscle with precise temperature control. The high-frequency energy triggers the fat cells to release their contents. Your body’s natural metabolic system takes over and flushes out the excreted fat content. As the fat cell volume decreases the fat layer is reduced.

Your Beautiful Skin

We can safely and effectively use Exilis on the face, neck, arms, abdomen, and thighs to help you lose inches and rejuvenate the skin.

Face and Neck

Exilis rejuvenates the entire face by tightening skin and stimulating collagen which softens wrinkles and fine lines. This treatment can reduce jowls and redefine the jaw line. It can also tighten and smooth the neck and reduce excess skin under the chin. Many of our patients use it as an effective, non-surgical alternative to a face lift. Treatments usually take 30 to 60 minutes. Our facial Exilis procedure can also be coupled with any of our injectable fillers or BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments for truly impressive results. We first use Exilis to tighten the skin and then add volume where needed with injectable fillers.


An effective, non-surgical alternative to an eyelid lift, Exilis can renew the appearance of the entire eye area. It can safely treat the very thin and delicate eyelid skin. To maximize safety, we place a plastic shield under the eyelids during treatment. Above the eye, tightened skin and reduced hooding can give the eyes a brighter, more refreshed look. We can also use Exilis to reduce under-eye bags. Patients enjoy having more lifted eyes with tighter, smoother skin all around.


Exilis is ideal for men and women who are not significantly overweight, but would like to firm sagging skin and reduce unwanted bulges that aren’t improved by dieting and exercise alone. It can even improve the appearance of cellulite. Commonly treated areas include the abdomen, “love handles,” hips, thighs, buttocks, and arms. It can also tighten loose, stretched out skin on the abdomen from pregnancy.

For even better results, you can couple the Exilis procedure with CoolSculpting®. First we use CoolSculpting to help remove 20 to 30% of the unwanted fat layer, and then Exilis to help smooth and reduce the bulge even further. This combination of treatments can help you shed unwanted inches and give you the confidence to look great no matter what you wear!


Exilis is a painless treatment that we perform in our office without anesthetic. The treatment protocol consists of 4 visits that last approximately 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the area you choose to treat. Some results will be immediately visible, but optimal results will be seen after the 4th treatment.

There is no downtime with Exilis, so you can return quickly to your normal activities. Side effects are generally minor and may include redness and mild swelling, which usually disappear quickly. There is no special care needed after treatment, but sunscreen is recommended as part of good skin care.
