Melissa French, Senior Medical Aesthetician
Currently the number one body contouring treatment in the United States, we are proud to be one of the first clinics in the UK to offer Exilis Elite.
Unlike surgical treatments, the Exilis Elite treatment requires no incisions, greatly increasing comfort and reducing downtime*.
As Exilis Elite is a non-surgical treatment, this allows our medical aestheticians to use the machine on a wide range of areas that are prone to suffer from loose skin and fat and cellulite build-up.
Here at the Light Touch Clinic, our popular body contouring areas include:
The treatment uses both radio frequency and ultrasound technology. Targeting these differing energies on the treatment area causes the deeper layers of skin to heat up. This then causes fat cells to wither away, allowing the body’s defensives to naturally breakdown the fat cells.
Exilis Elite also stimulates collagen production, which allows skin tissue to remodel and tighten naturally over time – helping skin appear firmer, smoother and more youthful.

Using cutting-edge patented technology Exilis Elite is the only device on the market to use a combination of radio frequency energy and ultrasound to eliminate the signs of ageing and re-contour the body.
Exilis Elite features a fat-melting module and a skin-tightening module. During the treatment, precisely controlled radiofrequency energy is used to heat the deeper layers of the skin. This heat causes fat cells to shrink and die and contracts the skin tissue, stimulating new collagen production.
What areas does Exilis Elite treat?
Exilis Elite has two modules; one for fat reduction and one for skin tightening.
The fat reduction module heats fat cells to a temperature that permanently destroys them. It is highly effective on areas on areas of stubborn, diet-and-exercise-resistant fat on the stomach, inner and outer thighs, upper arms and back.
The skin tightening module causes the collagen support tissues in the skin to remodel and tighten, thereby stimulating and strengthening the collagen network which improves skin laxity, texture and cellulite. It delivers excellent results on areas prone to sagging including the jowls, neck, décolletage, thighs and knees.
Is it safe?
Exilis Elite delivers precise heating and cooling plus real time monitoring of skin temperature. This enables our highly skilled aesthetic practitioners to reach therapeutic temperatures in the shortest amount of time providing a predictable and beneficial outcome while ensuring your safety and comfort.
Does it hurt?
Exilis Elite feels like a heated massage. Your body temperature is constantly monitored and the settings adjusted to ensure a comfortable treatment.
What’s the downtime?
Your skin may look slightly pink for 1-2 hours post-treatment.
What happens to the ‘destroyed’ fat cells?
Over time, the body metabolises and excretes them as waste with usually no increase in either cholesterol levels or fat levels in the blood. To help aid this process, we recommend increasing your water intake and exercise levels the day before, of and after each treatment.
Will Exilis Elite work for me?
The ideal candidate is within two stone of their ideal body weight with area of soft, pinchable fat and/or skin laxity, cellulite and wrinkles.
How many treatments will I need?
Generally a series of treatments will be required to achieve the desired result. We often recommend a course of 4-6 treatments but this will of course depend on your cosmetic concerns and the goals you want to achieve.
How long do the results last?
Sagging skin and wrinkles – results can last for up to 2 years for most of our patients.
Unwanted fat – long term results for most patients (so as long as you maintain your weight with normal diet and exercise).
What are the risks and complications?
All non-invasive procedures carry a small amount of risk which is why they are only administered after a face-to-face consultation with one of highly experienced practitioners, during which a full assessment will be carried out and a full list of cautions and contraindications discussed.
Is Exilis Elite my only option?
No, we also offer CoolSculpting for permanent fat reduction, INTRAcel for skin rejuvenation or ULTRAcel for facial skin laxity. Before you undergo any treatment you will be invited for a consultation with one of our doctors who will help you decide which treatment option is most suitable.
At the Light Touch Clinic, we have a skin tightening expert our aesthetician Melissa. Approachable and dedicated to giving patients that extra confidence boost, Melissa can help you look your best with Exilis Elite.
