Hunt Valley, MD (PRWEB) March 27, 2011
Dr. Robert Weiss has begun offering the revolutionary new Exilis treatment to treat wrinkles, laxity, and to reshape the skin and body. The MD Laser Skin and Vein Institute was the first to offer this treatment in the United States after FDA clearance. The device uses a delivery of ultra-precise radiofrequency technology to heat the skin, causing collagen support tissues to remodel, tighten, and firm.
The Exilis, manufactured and designed by BTL Aesthetics, made its debut at the American Academy of Dermatology’s annual meeting in February 2011 and followed up with impressive recognition at the South Beach Scientific Symposium. BTL Aesthetics’ exclusive Energy Flow Control gives dermatologists unprecedented control over the depth of tissue rejuvenation, and the device’s non-invasive nature and pain-free application make it a win-win for patients and physicians alike. It also includes integrated cooling to protect the skin.
Dr. Robert Weiss, a past president of the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS), refers to the Exilis as the Ferrari of aesthetic devices. “It is high performance yet very safe, and you are always in total control of its power,” Dr. Weiss notes with regard to the safety and efficiency of the device. Because the device requires no anesthetic, the patient can provide feedback about the comfort level and patient safety is assured. Dr. Weiss states that patients have remarked that the treatment feels like “a warm massage.”
While the treatment stands exceptionally on its own, it is also excellent in conjunction with other therapies, such as Zeltiq CoolSculpting, a fat-freezing treatment for localized fat deposits like “love handles,” “muffin-top” and “baby fat” of the abdomen. For the face, Exilis’ tightening capabilities enhance the rejuvenation results achieved by techniques such as fractional laser treatments, Botox Cosmetic®, Dysport® and fillers such as Restylane® and Juvederm®.
Dr. Weiss, Director of the Maryland Dermatology Laser Skin and Vein Institute, is Associate Professor of Dermatology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and has performed numerous clinical studies on non-invasive skin rejuvenation as Director of the MD Laser Skin and Vein Institute. He has presented hundreds of times at worldwide professional conferences and has numerous peer-reviewed publications. As an authority on dermatology, cosmetic dermatology surgery, laser medicine, varicose vein treatments and body contouring and liposculpture, Dr. Weiss has been featured on national news programs such as 20/20 and The Today Show. He has published multiple textbooks and is in practice with his wife, Dr. Margaret Weiss and associate, Dr. Karen Beasley, who are also experts in cosmetic dermatology and use of these state-of-the-art devices.
