What is Pellevé?
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 does Pellevé treat most effectively?
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
- Crow’s feet
- Tired or unhappy expression
How is Pellevé different from other skin tightening treatments?

What does Pellevé feel like?

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?
