Exilis combines radiofrequency energy with ultrasound technology, the only device of its kind. Subsurface skin tissue gets heated to the point of coagulation. When that occurs, the coagulated collagen starts flushing out of the body and new tissue replaces it. The new collagen takes up the slack under the outer skin layers while other new tissue attracts and absorbs moisture to treatment areas, generally creating optimal conditions for healthy skin.
One of the differences with the Exilis design is that the hand piece can be used in many places on the body and is not limited to one or two as with many other systems.

The Exilis Ultra 360 system includes an energy flow control, so each treatment can be adjusted to the patient and their treatment needs. Varying skin tones often require adjustment of the device for the best results. Since the RF and ultrasound energy creates heat as the deep tissue absorbs, the hand piece also includes a cooling system to minimize any effect on surface skin.
