Exilis is an FDA-approved technology that uses radio frequency waves to tighten skin and reduce fat. The radio waves produces heat, which in turn stimulates collagen and targets fat cells, to create smoother, firmer, more taut-looking skin. As opposed to using ultrasound or microneedling, the heat from the radio waves will cause shrinkage. Dr. Schultz says, “Exilis is a very good technique for getting good results without side effects.” With Exilis as your body-sculpting technique, you have minimized your risk for and reduced side effects.
You’ll have to work with your physician to choose the right area of treatment for you. However, most people have this procedure done on their neck and face. In addition, many women who’ve had several children and are in great shape, will get Exilis done on their mid-sections. They may not be able to get rid of the pouch around the belly button from the laxity that occurred due to multiple pregnancies. Another area people choose is their upper arms, in order to reduce some of the flaccidity and floppiness there. Sometimes, women will even get fat deposits on the inside of their knees and Exilis works well in this area as well.
The only limit in regards to how many areas can be treated at one time has to do with the amount of time you’re willing to spend at the office! Each area that’s treated will take about 25-30 minutes. Typically patients will get both sides of their body done at the same time (both upper arms or both thighs), in which case the entire treatment would last about an hour.
Some patients may see their results instantly, while others may take up to a month to see changes. In a clinical study published by Medical Insight, Inc., 79% of subjects had improvement in each of the three categories measured — fine lines/wrinkles, skin laxity, and overall skin texture. But perhaps the best benefit of having an Exilis treatment is the ability to avoid surgery in order to tighten and lift the skin, particularly in the lower face and neck. Results from Exilis tend to delay any required surgery for 5-10 years.
Although you may not be familiar with this procedure, the team at Park Avenue Skin Care has treated many patients over the years with this technique. That experience, their good judgment and operator technique means you’ll get the best quality treatment every single time. So there’s no reason to stick with sagging skin. If you’re ready to set up an appointment, give the office a call at 212-369-9600 or make an appointment through our website.
When you arrive for your Exilis treatment, there is no preparation necessary. Your appointment will take, on average, about 30-40 minutes. During the appointment, the area you’re treating will be prepared with toner, as well as any questions you have will be answered. The procedure will begin and the pad that connects the device to your body will be secured to your back for the radio wave technology to begin the treatment process. After your appointment, you’re free to go about your day normally. There will be no recovery time necessary and the results will typically occur over the next few days to a week.
I've been seeing Dr. Schultz for the last 8 years and during that time, I've recommended him to countless friends for both cosmetic and medical dermatologic help. I trust him completely both diagnostically and aesthetically. When I had shingles, he was wonderful, incredibly supportive and kind. And when I eased into doing more cosmetic dermatology, he was– and continues to be– patient, careful and cautious. He listens to concerns and really hears what your goal outcome is and works with you to make it happen. I wanted to maintain a natural look while keeping my skin looking fresh and that's just what he's done for me. I always leave his office feeling prettier and well-cared for! If you have a medical concern or something about your skin you want to upgrade, you can't do better than Dr. Schultz and his wonderful team. And the products are amazing as well!

Dr. Schultz is the most thorough and good natured dermatologist I have ever seen. I have been a patient of his for more than 20 years. He has taught me everything I know about the value of taking care of my skin, a gift that keeps on giving. He also takes the time to listen to me, to see me as an individual and doesn't treat my needs as a one size fits all doctor. I really appreciate his kindness, patience and expertise. I absolutely love his product line and have definitely reaped the rewards from using it, especially his glycolic peel pads and moisturizer, which I can't live without. My skin feels softer, smoother, appears more translucent and actually looks younger! Dr. Schultz helped me to see beyond the lines and wrinkles, although he so good at helping to keep those at bay while maintaining a very natural appearance. His staff is outstanding. They make you feel welcome, like family, from the moment you walk through the door. Angela, Monika, Deborah and all of the support staff are extraordinary at what they do. Thank you Dr. Schultz and everyone at Park Ave Skincare. You're the best!

Dr. Schultz has truly transformed my skin, so much so that I can confidently leave the house without wearing makeup now. During my first meeting with Dr. Schultz, he intently listened to my skin concerns, we discussed what my goals were, and he explained pragmatically what treatments and products he recommended for me. I truly appreciate his fantastic bedside manner and conservative approach. I am a perfectionist in every aspect of my life, including my skin, and Dr. Schultz understood this and was committed to helping me achieve every skin goal I had. The entire staff is just so fantastic and friendly, from reception to the PAs. They make you feel welcome and extremely comfortable, which to me is very important when visiting any doctor’s office. As someone who works too much and never gets enough sleep, my skin was looking very dull and lifeless. My skin is now full of life again and has an incredible glow to it which I have never had before. And I owe it all to the incredible Dr. Schultz.

My partnership with Dr Schultz began more than 30 years ago. As a generous friend, advisor, skilled surgeon, and superb cosmetic diagnostician, he has enabled me to look my best. He has kept me abreast of the most sophisticated procedures and in so doing, has maximized my appearance, always guided by what will be most beneficial for me. He is someone I go to for advice and care and his staff is another manifestation of this care. I don’t know many patients who can say this, and I feel fortunate to be among them.

In the four years that I've been a patient of Dr. Schultz, my acne-prone skin has gone from constant breakouts to smooth and clear. These days, I feel confident and comfortable enough in my skin to wear minimal makeup, if any—which I never would have done in years past. Dr. Schultz and his warm, friendly staff always go above and beyond; he takes the time to listen, talk with me, and create the best plan for my skin. It's clear he has my best interests in mind, and I trust him wholeheartedly. I would highly recommend him to friends, family, and frankly, anyone who asks.

Each session with Dr. Schultz is a mini education in skin care. He approaches each patient as a unique individual with different needs. I’m Asian and he’s explained to me how that impacts treatment in a clear manner that a layperson can understand. At each examination, Dr. Schultz recites detailed notes to his staff which he then refers back to at each future appointment, adjusting and tweaking treatment plans when necessary. Over the past two years I’ve seen a remarkable improvement in my blemishes and overall complexion and wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Schultz to anyone looking to enhance their appearance.

I have been a patient of Dr. Schultz for many years, and I continue to be amazed at his medical approach, patience, and professionalism. He takes the time to listen to my health concerns, explains how and why he would like to issue a treatment in a way that I understand , answers all of my questions, and all of his procedures and painless and thorough. Dr. Schultz is very attentive, results-oriented, and extremely knowledgeable. He follows up and is committed to my health and satisfaction. The Park Avenue Skincare is a calm environment and the staff are all very friendly, warm, and respectful. It's easy to get appointments at a time that works for me and they are always on time and considerate. I think so highly of Dr. Schultz and his practice that I sent my mom to him, and continue to go to his office even though my life is based in midtown west! I have great confidence in the care that Dr. Schultz gives.
