However, one of the most commonly asked question is: What is the difference between HIFU and BTL Exilis Ultra Face 360?
To help you decide which treatment best suits your needs, RT Aesthetics experts break it down for you.
Exilis or Hifu?
Exilis or Hifu best for me? If you’ve been struggling to decide which treatment would be best for you, this guide is here to help. Here is everything you need to know about the Exilis and HIFU treatments so that you can make the best decision possible.
Exilis is a pain-free face and body contouring procedure. It uses both ultrasound and radio-frequency technology to tighten the skin and reduce wrinkles, sagging, the appearance of cellulite, and unwanted areas of fat. This treatment is conducted in a non-invasive way to improve the overall texture of the skin. The way in which this treatment’s technology is able to heat the deeper layers of the skin safely eliminates fat without the need for surgery.
Meanwhile, a smoother and tighter result is achieved by encouraging the production of the skin’s own natural collagen and elastin.
Incredibly, Exilis is the only face and body sculpting treatment that uses this revolutionary technology. It can be used to treat any part of the body from head to toe, significantly reducing the appearance of cellulite and stubborn age lines.
What is HIFU?
Non-invasive HIFU (high intensity focused ultrasound), a FDA approved celebrity-favourite treatment, harnesses the power of ultrasound waves to precisely target 3 specific layers of the skin from 1.5mm, 3mm and 4.4mm by stimulating cell production. The deepest layer targets the superficial muscular aponeurotic system (i.e. the face muscles) which helps to lift, tighten, and shape the face with immediate results.
Benefits of HIFU
The lifting effect of HIFU offers an overall “facelift” look. The treatment also helps to sculpt the face to achieve the coveted V-shape jawline, higher cheekbones and ultimately a lifted slimmer face.
What is BTL Exilis Ultra Face 360?
The Exilis Ultra Face 360, a favourite of Hollywood celebrities like Kim Kardashian, is a non-invasive treatment that delivers both ultrasound and radio-frequency to the upper layers of the skin. This FDA-approved technology is used to stimulate collagen production to reduce signs of ageing such as fine lines, wrinkles, eye-bags and deep creases.
Benefits of Ultra Face 360
This treatment is amazing for reducing the appearance of wrinkles and lines, getting rid of eye-bags and minimising pores. It also improves skin elasticity so that the complexion looks more youthful.
How to decide what treatment best suits your skincare concerns?
Choose HIFU if…you have a rounder face shape that you would like to sculpt, slim and lift. HIFU is also good for rejuvenating tired skin or skin that has started to become laxer in appearance for a lifted effect. This treatment is especially recommended for ages 40 and up who have more mature skin.
Choose Exilis Ultra Face 360 if… you have ageing skin with wrinkles and eye-bags. This treatment is especially recommended for ages 25 and up.
Many clients even combine both treatments to treat multiple concerns. For instance, a customer may wish to sculpt their face while also treating eye wrinkles and eye bags. In this case, they can benefit from this combination where our Aesthetic Practitioner may recommend HIFU on the entire face then Exilis Ultra Face 360 on just the eye area. Therefore, for best results, we strongly recommend having a consultation before deciding on your treatment procedure.
