The Pellevé skin tightening system uses radio frequency technology to gently warm the skin beneath the surface, providing skin tightening and stimulating collagen growth. Pellevé is a great nonsurgical, pain-free option to tighten the skin and reduce wrinkles around the face and eyes without the need for a surgical procedure like a face lift. This procedure can treat forehead lines, wrinkles between the eyebrows, sagging eyelid skin, crow’s feet, and nasolabial folds.
How does it work?
The Pellevé system uses radiofrequency technology to gently warm the skin deep beneath the surface, which over time, stimulates the body’s natural production of new collagen. 30, 60, and 90 days after treatment, your body is still working to naturally grow new collagen. Because Pellevé triggers your body’s natural reaction to rebuild collagen weeks after the procedure, a series of treatments will give you optimal results!
Is Pellevé right for me?
Pellevé is ideal for men and women with all skin types. Unlike most laser treatments, Pellevé is gentle on the skin and is safe to use all year round, regardless of tan skin. We can better determine if Pellevé is the right treatment to achieve your aesthetic goals during your complimentary consultation.
What can I expect?
Pellevé is a comfortable, safe procedure that doesn’t have any downtime. Patients have reported that it feels similar to a relaxing hot stone massage. After the procedure, you might have slight redness, which is caused by your skin’s elevated temperatures during treatment and will subside soon afterwards. You will be able to return to your normal day-to-day activities immediately after the procedure.
How long does the treatment take?
Treating the entire face takes anywhere from 45 to 60 minutes. If you would like a specific area treated (e.g., the delicate areas around your eyes, forehead, or smile lines) your procedure could be completed in as little as 30 minutes! Because the collagen rebuilding process continues to work days, weeks, and even months after your treatment, a series of treatments are required for the best results.
How many treatments are recommended?
3 to 5 treatments are recommended about 4 weeks apart to boost the collagen rebuilding process. We will develop a unique treatment plan designed specifically for you during your consultation.
