Exilis Specialist

Exilis is a new non-invasive procedure that uses radiofrequency (RF) to help tighten and tone sagging skin and also helps reduce unwanted fat with no downtime. The radiofrequency energy allows Exilis to safely heat the deeper tissues and ramp up the metabolic activity of the fat cells, causing them to liquefy. The fat is absorbed by the lymphatic system for safe removal and processed out by your kidneys within days.

Exilis also remodels collagen, something that is often promised but usually never delivered. Because collagen lives deep in the dermis of the skin, it is quite difficult to reach. The cutting edge technology in Exilis can reach these fibers and transform the structure of collagen. Commonly treated areas are the lower face, jowls, neck, arms, abdomen, buttocks, and thighs. Exilis requires no numbing or anesthesia and is often described by patients, “Like a warm massage”. Each treatment is about 45 minutes to an hour, scheduled 7 to 10 days apart and patients are advised to have 4 to 6 treatments to achieve the best results. Results can be seen during treatment and maximum results are seen 3 months post-treatment.


Exilis Q&A

What results can I expect?

After the age of 20, your body loses collagen at a rate of 1% each year. Thus the cells that produce collagen basically lay dormant. The Exilis treatments are spaced 7-10 days apart because when you’re trying to stimulate those dormant cells, it turns out that a 7-10 day interval between treatments wakes up those cells most effectively. The RF waves from Exilis will diminish wrinkles and tighten skin. These waves will also deplete fat from excess fat cells, thereby enhancing the true contours of the body.

Is the service painful?

There is no pain associated with an Exilis treatment. You will only feel a moderate to an intense sensation of heat which is often described by some patients as a warm massage. There is no need for numbing or anesthesia with an Exilis treatment.

What is the downtime?

There is no downtime with an Exilis treatment. Other than a brief period of redness and possible minor swelling you can resume your normal everyday activities.

How long do results last?

You may see results during the course of your treatments; however, most of your improvement is seen in the 3 months following your last treatment. You may have to repeat the treatment every 2-3 years.

The ladies here at Embry Women’s Health really know how to treat people! I’ve been coming here since I moved to the area four years ago, and I am never disappointed. Nurse Lockwood and Dr. Embry always make time for their patients and make sure to get to the root of any problem you may have. They also have a gorgeous office with everything you could possibly need. The atmosphere is very cozy and calming and does not feel like a doctors office at all. My only suggestion to visitors is to book your appointments ASAP as they go quickly, and I get why! Sometimes when I have come here, I end up waiting a bit as they do tend to give that full attention and care to each patient, so it’s worth the wait. I just wish they could be my nurse/doctor for EVERYTHING 🙁

I have never had such a positive experience at a healthcare facility, not that I’ve had particularly negative ones, but I was pleasantly surprised the time Barbara Lockwood, NP took with me. She is very easy to talk to and made me feel comfortable during my visit. I’m so glad I found this practice!

This was my first visit at this office and it was so much better then a visit I’ve had at a different gynecologist. The ladies were genuinely friendly and helpful and all very knowledgeable. They make you feel comfortable and safe. It’s so hard to find a gynecologist that fits your needs and I’m very happy to say I found mine.

Words from our patients

JoEllen is AMAZING! Not only is she professional- she makes your whole experience comfortable. If you’re looking for a professional that never judges your situation and treats you very well- I would definitely recommend this office!

It is refreshing to meet a practitioner who sees the whole patient and not just a series of symptoms. JoEllen is willing to spend the time to ask questions and really listen to the responses. I have seen JoEllen several times and I have always appreciated how much time she spends with each appointment and her pragmatic approach with solutions.  I feel like my health drives the appointment and not the schedule. Finding JoEllen’s practice was like finding a needle in a haystack, a caring practitioner who encourages patients to listen to their bodies and to be their own best advocate.

Friendly staff. JoEllen is incredibly kind, patient and answers all of my questions whenever I see her. I don’t feel like I am being rushed when I am there, it is very nice.

I went in as a new patient just for an annual exam and Dr. Barbara Lockwood was so professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. She made sure to answer any and every question I had and she made sure I understood everything I needed to know. I have been to some offices in the past where you feel judged but she was so kind and made me feel so comfortable talking to her! I will be moving away soon but I might just have to make the drive back to see her next year!
