Exilis Elite – does it work for crinkly skin on the elbow and arms?

The following question was submitted on 07/26/2013 at 00:01:28 -------------------------------------------------------------- What are your thoughts on Excilis Best's impact on crinkly skin on the elbow and on the other side of the arm, at the crook where the arm bends? (And in general on the crepey arm skin in general.)

The Exilis Elite is the newer, more powerful model. Despite all the fabulous marketing photos, my opinion is that there isn’t enough data in some of these areas to conclude much yet. There is more data on the face, neck and abdomen. If money is no object, then the worst thing that would happen is you would waste your money and time.


In my opinion, it’s better to wait about a year for more data to accumulate on effectiveness on some body areas – is it affected by age, weight, amount of sun damage, which treatment parameters are most effective, and how many treatments are optimal, etc.

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
