Pelleve – RF Wrinkle Reduction
A Fresher Face…Without Surgery
Pellevé wrinkle reduction precisely heats the deep layers of your skin using advanced radio frequency energy without damaging the epidermis, or top layer. The heat causes the existing collagen in your skin to contract and tighten. Also after the treatment, your skin may start to produce new collagen.
Pellevé can be used to treat the skin on the face, including:
- Nasolabial folds
- Wrinkles around the mouth
- Lines or folds between the eyebrows
- Lines on the forehead
- Loose skin above or below the eye
- Crow’s feet
When Can You Expect Results?
Although many people start to see results immediately after the first treatment, most patients begin with a package of 3-4 treatments spaced about 30 days apart. We will recommend the right number of treatments for you.
How is Pellevé different from other skin tightening treatments?
Pellevé has been proven to provide safe and effective skin tightening in medical studies. Because Pellevé is a non-invasive procedure, meaning no surgery is required, there are minimal side effects and discomfort. Unlike other systems, no anesthesia or skin cooling is needed during your Pellevé procedure, so you can return to home or work immediately following treatment.
What should I expect during the procedure?
You will feel a deep warming sensation each time the Pellevé handpiece touches the area being treated. Because no anesthetic is required, you’ll be able to describe the depth of the heat to your doctor, which will help to ensure the best possible results.
How long does a Pellevé procedure take?
Your Pellevé procedure will typically take about 45 to 60 minutes for a full facial treatment. Because Pellevé doesn’t require anesthesia or downtime, it fits easily into your busy schedule.
What should I expect afterwards?
You should expect to be able to return to your daily activities with no downtime at all. Unlike lasers, there is no restriction from being in the sun and you can also apply makeup immediately after the procedure. Some patients experience mild swelling and redness which typically goes away within 2 to 24 hours.
