With each passing year, our skin loses the elasticity and “bounce” of youth, eventually becoming saggy and lax. Exilis Protégé is a skin tightening treatment offered at our San Francisco practice to help promote collagen growth and give skin its bounce again. This completely non-invasive treatment uses the power of radiofrequency energy to restore skin on the face and body without the need for an incision.
Protégé is an energy device which delivers radiofrequency energy deeply into the skin, enabling noticeable improvement in the tone and tightness of the face and body.

Using advanced radiofrequency technology, the Exilis Protégé device causes the deeper layers of skin to contract and tighten. The device also encourages the production of new collagen to sustain your results.

Radiofrequency treatments such as Protégé are quite comfortable, and patients seldom report sensations of pain or discomfort. After your treatment, you may experience some lingering redness.
Typically, patients achieve optimal results after several sessions spaced about 1 week apart. Each patient is different, though, and your practitioner will be able to offer you a more specific timeline during your consultation.
Absolutely. Although it creates excellent results on its own, Protégé is often performed in conjunction with BOTOX® Cosmetic, laser treatments, and others to combine the benefits of each treatment. Your practitioner works with you to develop a treatment plan that precisely meets your needs.
