What causes cellulite?

Multiple factors contribute to the dimpling and “cottage cheese” appearance that are characteristic of cellulite. Perhaps the most notable of these are enlarged fat chambers and increased skin laxity. As metabolism slows and fat chambers swell with age, the amount of outward pressure on the skin slowly increases.

The increase in fat volume around collagen fibers that tether the skin to the underlying muscle creates cellulite’s dimpling effect. At the same time, increased skin laxity accentuates the texture of the cellulite beneath. By reducing the size of fat chambers and restoring the skin’s elasticity, areas of the body containing cellulite can be smoothed and toned for a sleeker appearance.

How does Exilis Ultra reduce cellulite?

Exilis Ultra 360 is a state-of-the-art non-surgical treatment that combines radiofrequency and ultrasound energies to tighten skin and reduce fat simultaneously. The use of these two energies together allows Exilis Ultra to treat multiple layers of tissue, penetrating deep below the skin’s surface. Within the tissues, the RF and ultrasound energies are both converted to controlled thermal energy. This heat simultaneously shrinks fat cells and stimulates the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin for a skin-tightening effect.

Exilis Ultra Benefits

As it effectively tightens skin and reduces fat, Exilis Ultra can sculpt virtually any area of the body in addition to reducing the appearance of cellulite.

Something else that makes Exilis Ultra stand out is its ability to safely treat clients of all body types and skin tones so everyone can achieve smoother, more youthful contours. As both of these types of energy are well-tolerated by the human body, this treatment is comfortable and presents minimal risks and side effects compared to other modalities. Treatment involves no incisions, anesthesia, or downtime, and results are long-lasting and appear entirely natural.

Procedure and Recovery

You will lie down comfortably during your treatment while your specialist guides the Exilis Ultra applicator over the treatment area.

You will notice a sensation of warmth similar to a hot stone massage. Each session takes about 35-60 minutes, and most clients undergo three or four treatments spaced seven to 10 days apart to reach their best results. There is no downtime, and you will be able to return to all of your regular activities as soon as you leave our office. Treatment is so well-tolerated that you will not need numbing or pain medication during or after your appointment. As non-invasive Cellulite Reduction treatment doesn't involve the use of lasers, you will be free to enjoy outdoor activities without the risk of impeding or damaging your results. You may notice some mild redness or tenderness after your treatment, though these minor side effects typically resolve within a day.


Most clients achieve a visible difference in the treatment area soon after their second treatment. However, results are progressive and can develop for as long as six months after your last treatment. The fat reduction from Exilis Ultra is permanent, and the skin tightening achieved through treatment can last as long as two years. You can maintain your results with a consistently healthy lifestyle and follow-up treatments.
