Fat Melting Services at Image Dermatology In Montclair, NJ

A noninvasive treatment to sculpt your body and tighten your skin

Dr. Downie began researching this technique in October 2010 and using and lecturing on it in January 2011. Her enthusiasm is derived from first-hand experience. She was forced to reduce her own physical activities following a knee injury in December 2010, and with holiday eating, found herself adding pounds. She was pleasantly amazed at how effectively Exilis melted her "love handles." Exilis is an innovative fat melting and tissue tightening device for the face and body. Although Dr. Downie has used radiofrequency devices for skin tightening and fat melting in the past, she was not satisfied with the results. This new technology has changed cosmetic dermatology forever!

Image Dermatology - Fat Melting
“The minute patients hear that they don’t have to get cut, and they don’t have to get necessarily anesthetized, and they will see results, they’re interested in learning more. So I’ve had people literally walk in off the street to make appointments that were never my patients before. The machine, I feel, is at a cost where you can recover the cost of the machine within three to four months of great internal marketing and that’s before you even put an ad in the newspaper, so I think it’s well-worth it in terms of your bottom line.

“With this body-shaping device, what I’m finding is that patients move from me doing their outer thigh, then I’m doing their arms, then I’m doing their mother’s chin, then I’m doing their neighbor’s neck. So it’s the type of thing that builds, that people like, and I’ve had many, many patients come back in. My patient that’s had the most treated has had four separate areas treated, and next month she’s going to have her fifth area treated, so she’s thrilled with this device.

“So you have had four treatment sessions a little over six months ago and you just want to do a little bit more jeuge and get it tightened up a little bit more before the holidays?”

[Patient]: “I got the Exilis treatment before I did the four sessions and had great results. But now I’m here for maintenance, and I also have a trip coming up where I will be in a bathing suit, so I figured it’s the right time to come.”

“What we did with you before was we melted a little bit of fat but you really didn’t have a lot of fat. So it’s really about tightening after your two kids.”

[Patient]: “What I like about the Exilis is that, because I’m not really a candidate for a tummy tuck or any type of surgery but yet I realistically have that excess skin and flab on my stomach from having children. So this is a great alternative. It’s perfect, because it’s just really tightening. I’m not looking to lose weight or anything.”

“The Exilis uses focused Radiofrequency and they have energy flow technology, which is the ideal combination of heating and cooling so that way it’s extremely safe.

[Patient]: “What I like about it for me, because I’ve got, I’ve had two kids and the elasticity of my stomach. No matter how much I work out, I still have that sagging in certain areas of my stomach, and I’m not a candidate for liposuction or anything like that I don’t think. And this is perfect, because I really noticed a difference. Because it’s noninvasive, I really feel safe about it. And Dr. Downie explained the technology and it seems state-of-the-art and it seems like something that I feel like a lot of people have been waiting for in order to tighten their skin without having to go through some type of surgery.

“What I like about this is it’s got what we call Collagen Refill Technology, so that’s what is tightening you inside. So the heat is going deep down kind of to your basically lower levels of your epidermis, higher levels of your dermis, and it’s remodeling your collagen. So that’s how you’re getting the contraction and it treats your skin laxity. It’s amazing technology.

[Patient]: “A big difference is when I sit down if I see a little bit of flab over the top of my pants, and I noticed a difference in that. And then after the fourth treatment, I really noticed a difference. It was well-worth it.”

Impressive results with the precise delivery of thermal energy

Fat Melting Montclair NJ Photo The selected treatment zones are covered with a protective gel to allow the handpiece to glide smoothly over the skin. The device delivers radiofrequency energy to the deeper layers of skin, speeding up metabolic activity and breaking apart the fat cells. At the same time, collagen production is stimulated, improving skin texture and laxity. Although some mild discomfort may be experienced, most patients say the results are worth it! The device’s temperature sensor allows precise delivery of sufficient energy to achieve results without significant pain. Many patients compare it to a hot stone massage.

No downtime to interrupt your busy schedule

Patients can return to their normal activities immediately after treatment. We recommend they drink a lot of water before and after treatment, as hydration is important to flush away the fat. I have patients drink 12-15 glasses each day. Light exercise is recommended to optimize results. There may be slight redness and mild soreness in the treatment area for up to 24 hours after treatment. Safe and effective treatment The Exilis is safe for all skin types. Exilis is FDA cleared and this treatment has been extensively tested in clinical studies and proven safe and effective. No reports of significant side effects have been reported for treatment with Exilis. Patients may experience temporary redness and swelling which goes away.
