What Should I Know About Pellevé Skin Tightening? AT DERMACARE SAN DIEGO

Collagen is the key to youthful skin. This protein provides men and women with a soft, supple, and healthy-looking facial aesthetic. Unfortunately, collagen is something that slowly diminishes as we get older. This typically happens around the age of 30, and besides it being a natural effect of aging, it can also be sped up by pollutants, UV exposure, an unhealthy lifestyle, and poor eating habits. These effects can make people look older than they actually are, as the lines and wrinkles on the face become more prominent, volume loss in the cheeks is more noticeable, and the skin just looks dull and worn out. However, the great news about collagen is that it can be regenerated to provide men and women with that youthful appearance once again.

At Dermacare Laser & Skin Care Clinics, we can help men and women who suffer from lost collagen and are living with an aging facial aesthetic. We offer Pellevé skin tightening, which is an FDA-approved radiofrequency (RF) energy technology that stimulates the body’s natural production of collagen. Find out more about Pellevé to help you decide whether or not this treatment is for you!

How Does Pellevé Work?

Pellevé works by using RF energy that is converted into heat. The heat reaches deep into the dermis, stimulating the production of new collagen. Over time, collagen is regenerated and the skin begins to tighten and fill in the lines, wrinkles, and scarring in the treated area. Pellevé is most commonly used to tighten skin on the jawline, forehead, eyelids, crow’s feet, nasolabial folds (lines around the mouth), and neck.

Is Pellevé Painful?

Most patients do not report any pain with this treatment, with some patients even likening it to a relaxing massage or facial. This treatment is the perfect non-surgical alternative to facelift surgery. And along with stunning results, there is no downtime associated with Pellevé, and patients can resume normal activities immediately after their 90-minute procedure.

Can I Get Pellevé?

First and foremost, a consultation with a Dermacare San Diego professional is recommended. During your consultation, we will be able to examine your skin and discuss your medical history. You will also have the opportunity to relay your concerns and aesthetic goals. At this time, we will determine if you are a true candidate for Pellevé.

Ideal patients for Pellevé are men and women with any type of skin tone. If we determine that Pellevé can benefit you, a customized treatment plan will be made. Most patients can see improvement after their first treatment, but multiple treatments may be necessary to achieve optimal results. Because collagen is stimulated, this treatment is a gift that keeps on giving. You can notice continued improvement over the course of a few months, and results can last up to 18 months. Because of this, it is recommended that patients undergo yearly sessions to maintain their youthful appearance.
