What is body contouring?
Body contouring at Ashburn Laser & Skincare Clinic is a nonsurgical procedure that uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to target fat cells beneath the surface of your skin. Body contouring isn’t a weight-loss treatment. It’s designed to reduce unwanted pockets of fat in areas that don’t respond to diet and exercise.
The team of aesthetics experts uses the Exilis® system to create definition and tone in problem areas and can reduce the circumference of targeted areas, such as the tummy and thighs.
How does body contouring work?
The Exilis system uses innovative technology to deliver focused radiofrequency (RF) waves that gently heat fat cells to the point of damage. Your body’s waste removal system then eliminates the destroyed cells gradually, revealing a more defined physique that looks and feels naturally beautiful.
Which areas can body contouring address?
The experienced specialists at Ashburn Laser & Skincare Clinic use the Exilis to address unwanted fat almost anywhere on your body. The most common areas for body contouring include:
- Upper and lower back
- Upper and lower abdomen
- Upper arms
- Bra line
The Exilis system is also effective for cellulite reduction as well as skin tightening on the face or body.
Is body contouring painful?
The advanced technology of the Exilis system offers impressive body-sculpting results without needles, surgery, anesthesia, or downtime. Treatments last 15-30 minutes, and you can expect to feel some warmth and pressure during your Exilis procedure. Many patients find the treatment relaxing, similar to a hot stone massage.
When will I see results?
You may notice results shortly after your first body-contouring treatment. Because radiofrequency body sculpting works with your natural waste-removal processes, full results appear gradually over a period of up to three months.
How many treatments will I need?
How many treatments you need depends on your body-contouring goals, the area you’re having treated, the amount of fat to be removed, and other individual factors. Your expert at Ashburn Laser & Skincare Clinic designs a customized treatment plan to meet your unique needs. Typically, two to four treatments are required to create the stunning silhouette you seek.
If you’re discouraged because your best efforts haven’t given you the definition you’d like to see, schedule a body-contouring consultation with a skilled expert at Ashburn Laser & Skincare Clinic. Call the offices today or book your visit online.

What is skin tightening?
Skin tightening at Ashburn Laser & Skincare Clinic is a noninvasive procedure that harnesses radiofrequency (RF) energy to target cells in the deep layers of your skin. The experienced team uses the Exilis® system, an innovative technology that reduces wrinkles and tightens skin without needles, surgery, or downtime.
How does skin tightening work?
The advanced technology of the Exilis system delivers RF energy that gently heats skin cells to stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin.
Collagen and elastin are proteins that keep skin firm and taut. Your skin contained a lot of these proteins in your younger years, but collagen and elastin levels decline with age. By increasing the production of these proteins, the Exilis restores strength and elasticity to your skin, so it appears smoother, tighter, and more youthful.
Where can skin tightening be performed?
The skilled specialists at Ashburn Laser & Skincare Clinic can use the Exilis to firm sagging skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, lines, and creases almost anywhere on your body.
The most common areas for skin tightening include:
- Upper arms
The team at Ashburn Laser & Skincare Clinic also uses the Exilis system to perform body contouring and cellulite reduction treatments.
Does skin tightening hurt?
The Exilis system has a unique cooling system and precision settings, so your Ashburn Laser & Skincare Clinic expert can deliver radiofrequency energy to the desired location at precisely the right temperature, so the procedure is virtually painless. In fact, many patients find the treatment relaxing, similar to a hot stone massage.
When will I see results?
Your skin may appear tighter and smoother shortly after your first skin-tightening treatment. Full results appear gradually over a period of up to three months, as collagen and elastin production continues to increase.
How many skin-tightening treatments will I need?
How many treatments you need depends on your skin type and personal goals. After your initial consultation, your specialist at Ashburn Laser & Skincare Clinic designs a personalized treatment plan based on your individual needs. Typically, two to four treatments are required to firm and rejuvenate your skin.
To banish wrinkles or sagging skin, and enjoy renewed confidence in your appearance, schedule a skin-tightening consultation at Ashburn Laser & Skincare Clinic. Call the offices today or book online.
