Enjoy the ‘Ultimate Skin Solution’ with a Fast and Painless Tightening Treatment in the Dallas Area

Your skin is constantly exposed to damaging factors that cause it to weaken, thin, and sag. Fortunately, technology is also constantly improving, leading to new devices that counter the effects of time, gravity, the sun, pollution, and aging itself. At Dr. Ellen Turner’s Dermatology Office, we seek out that technology so we can provide the latest in proven skincare. With Exion, Dallas and Irving-area patients get the benefit of advances in radiofrequency and ultrasound treatments so they can enjoy firmer, tighter skin and a more youthful appearance.

While other radiofrequency (RF) devices exist, Exion uses AI-driven fractionated technology that efficiently and painlessly penetrates to a precise depth for beautiful results with no recovery time needed. Known as the “ultimate skin solution,” this is truly a leap forward in rejuvenation technology. Talk to the Dermatology Office team today to get started.

What Is Exion?

Understanding Exion starts with understanding the importance of collagen and elastin in the skin. Together, these two proteins give skin its structure and resilience. Youthful skin has these molecules in abundance, but time, ultraviolet radiation, and other stressors hasten the breakdown of collagen and elastin, resulting in a loss of support and flexibility. A similar problem happens with hyaluronic acid, which is a sugar that binds to water molecules and gives skin a full, dewy, hydrated appearance.

Certain signs of aging—such as sagging—begin to develop as collagen and elastin break down faster than new molecules are created. A loss of hyaluronic acid leads to a drier skin that’s more prone to show lines and wrinkles. Exion gives aging skin an advantage by “jumpstarting” the process so that specialized cells begin creating collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic once again, leading to a rise in their numbers and an improvement in skin quality.

Exion accomplishes this in multiple ways. One modality works by pairing two stimulating strategies into a single device. First, tiny sterile needles create miniscule channels in the treatment area, with each channel triggering a repair response. Second, each needle also delivers RF energy below the surface, where the resulting heat prompts generative activity. Specifically, the heat encourages circulation, as well as stimulates collagen-producing fibroblasts and more.

Since the needles are spaced apart, there is no removal of the skin’s surface or creation of large wounds. Instead, the fractionated approach makes miniscule isolated channels surrounded by intact tissue. This allows for faster healing.

A second modality blends the device’s monopolar radiofrequency with targeted ultrasound to be applied to the face, neck, and body. Together, these two energies don’t just boost collagen production, but also increase hyaluronic acid in the skin by 224 percent! The result is a healthier and more youthful look.

What Can Exion Address?

Exion truly excels at tightening moderately lax skin on the face, neck, and body. It also reduces the severity of wrinkles, fine lines, certain scars, and more. The face applicator is specially designed for use even on delicate areas.

Boosting hyaluronic acid, collagen, and elastin is also an ideal strategy for overall skin rejuvenation. The result is a plumper, fuller, and better-hydrated look overall.

If you have particular cosmetic concerns, talk to the Dermatology Office team about them, and we can explain the various options and what they can do to help you achieve your goals.

What Sets Exion Apart from Other RF Treatments?

Each AI-powered Exion treatment is remarkably engineered to make the experience as efficient, comfortable, and effective as possible.

The treatment can extend to a depth of 8mm into the skin—significantly beyond the depth of a typical RF microneedling device—and only one pass is needed. The process is painless, so no topical anesthesia is required. Laxity on both the face and the body can be addressed.

Since beautiful results can be achieved with just a single pass, treatments are quick. Calling this a “lunch time” treatment is very accurate!

Does Exion Pair Well With Other Treatment Strategies?

Dr. Ellen Turner is thoroughly trained and experienced with a range of emerging technologies, allowing her to combine treatments in highly effective ways.

The skin-tightening effects of Exion pair particularly well with Emface, Emtone®, and Emsculpt Neo®, which are non-invasive contouring devices that blend high intensity focused electromagnetic energy with RF energy to build muscle and break down fat cells. All of these devices are made by trusted manufacturer BTL.

Exion can also be paired with SKINVIVE, a hyaluronic acid-based filler in the Juvéderm® line that improves hydration via microdroplet injections.

By combining sophisticated products and treatments in custom ways, Dr. Turner and her team can create especially naturalistic rejuvenating results.

Creating microchannels in the skin also opens the surface, making it more receptive to products applied topically. Talk to the Dermatology Office team about their recommendations for what to apply after an Exion treatment in order to maximize the results and enjoy even more lasting benefits.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Exion?

Anyone who wants to address age-related skin laxity and other cosmetic issues on the face, neck, and body may be a good candidate for this “ultimate skin solution.” To determine whether Exion is the best treatment strategy for you, schedule a consultation at the Dermatology Office. Our team can assess your skin, listen to your goals, and help you create a treatment plan.

How Long Will Exion Results Last?

The rejuvenating power of collagen induction, RF energy, and ultrasound results in tighter skin that will continue to improve over time as fibroblasts continue to make new structural protein and other beneficial elements. The rejuvenated look can last for months to years. It is important to note that skin treated by Exion will improve in texture, tightness, and tone, but then will continue to age as time passes. New treatments can be scheduled in the future in order to maintain the best results possible.

What Is Post-Exion Recovery Like?

Since Exion is a painless “single pass” treatment, there is no need to plan on significant time for recovery. The treated skin may be more sensitive just after the treatment, with other common side effects including slight swelling and redness. No special care is needed to resolve these effects, but patients should take precautions against sun exposure. Protection against UV radiation is always important, but needled and RF-treated skin can be especially sensitive. Plan to stay out of the sun as much as possible, wear protective covering to block UV radiation, and always wear sunscreen when going outdoors—even on cloudy days.

What Skin-Rejuvenating Options Are Available Beyond Exion in Dallas?

Beyond Exion, Dallas and Irving’s Dermatology Office offers a wide range of lax skin treatments, including Ultherapy, which uses ultrasound energy to cause tissue contraction and build collagen. Silhouette InstaLift is another option, employing injectable threads to secure sagging tissues on the face in a more elevated and youthful position. The threads can also be used for a non-surgical breast lift or butt lift.

Microneedling without RF energy is also available. As a double board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Ellen Turner makes multiple treatment options available in order to meet the unique needs of a wide range of patients seeking skin improvement.
