Pellevé precisely heats the deep layers of your skin using advanced radio wave technology without damaging the epidermis, or top layer. The heat causes the collagen in your skin to contract and tighten. After the treatment, your skin will start to produce new collagen. The result is an improvement in skin quality, firmness and tightness you can see and feel.
What may be expected during a treatment?
You will feel a deep warming sensation each time the Pellevé hand piece touches the area being treated. Because no anesthetic is required, you’ll be able to describe the depth of the feeling, which will help to ensure the best possible results.
How many treatments will I need?
3-5 treatments are generally recommended, with 3 being a requirement. They will need to be spaced 4 weeks apart in order to boost the collagen rebuilding process. We will work with you to develop a custom treatment plan.
How long does the procedure last?
Treating the entire face takes anywhere from 45 to 60 minutes. For more specific areas, such as around the eyes or the forehead, your treatment can be completed in as little as 30 minutes.
Who is best suited for this treatment?
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 you Pellevé procedure, so you can return to home or work immediately following treatment.
Pellevé can be used to treat skin on the face, including:
Naso labial folds
Wrinkles around the mouth
Lines or folds between the eyebrows
Lines on the forehead
Excess skin on the upper eyelid
Tired or unhappy expression
