As long as you are generally healthy and don’t have any serious health concerns (e.g., liver, kidney or heartdisease, cancer etc.), skin diseases or active infections in the area proposed for treatment, there are few medical reasons why you should not undergo this treatment. If you have a history of cold sores, you may need to take medication before treatment can be done.
If you have a pacemaker or any other implanted metal (e.g., hip joints) or electronic device ((e.g., internal defibrillator) then you will not be suitable for the Exilis treatment due to the delivery of radiofrequency energy to the body which could heat up these items. If you are planning a treatment to the facial area then metal dental braces may be a contra-indication for treatment due to the path of the radiofrequency from the treatment site to the grounding pad.
This treatment is not advised for pregnant or breast-feeding women.
If you have had ablative laser skin resurfacing or a deep chemical peel in the area to be treated in the last 3 months then you will be advised to wait before commencing an Exilis Elite treatment. If you have been treated with Accutane® in the last 12 months you will also be advised on a delay before you start your Exilis programme.
