Exilis Elite, the non-surgical skin tightening and fat reduction device from BTL Aesthetics, has now been cleared by the FDA for use in the temporary reduction of cellulite. Exilis uses radiofrequency technology to heat the skin, causing a boost in collagen production and treating underlying stubborn fat deposits that cause a lumpy appearance to the skin.

Dr. Marek Kacki, an anti-ageing clinical expert who has been testing the RF technology in use in Europe, commented:

“This is an exciting step forward in the treatment of cellulite. We are pleased with the early results of the BTL Exilis Elite when used for temporary reduction of cellulite and our patients have been thrilled at the moderate improvement seen with this device.”

Scott Mills, the VP of sales of BTL Aesthetics, added:

“We are committed to working closely with our partners in the aesthetics community to build on the initial results and continue to improve our capabilities for treating cellulite.”
