What is Pelleve?
Pelleve is a wrinkle reduction system that uses radio frequency heat energy to give you a virtually painless cosmetic treatment that feels like a warm, relaxing massage, and produces tighter, firmer skin. Pelleve slowly heats the deep layers of skin, breaking down the collagen fibers underneath the skin and forcing them to rebuild naturally over the course of a few months. Pelleve is a noninvasive, non-surgical treatment option that requires no anesthesia and no downtime. There are no needles, no injections, and no fillers.
What areas are treated with Pelleve?
As we age, our facial muscles tire and the years of emotions, the laughter, frowns, and tears catch up with us. The laughter lines and fine wrinkles become more prevalent and can affect how we feel about ourselves. Many of these fine lines on the face and neck, like laugh lines, crow’s-feet, sagging jawlines, forehead wrinkles, brow furrows, sagging eyelids and dark circles under the eyes can be greatly reduced with Pelleve to give a softer, more youthful appearance. Overall skin tone is improved, as well.
What can I expect with a Pelleve treatment?
Pelleve is an FDA-approved, comfortable, safe procedure that doesn’t have any downtime. Patients have reported that it feels similar to a relaxing hot stone massage. You might have slight redness after the procedure which is caused by your skin’s elevated temperatures during the treatment, and will subside soon afterwards. You will be able to return to your normal day-to-day activities immediately after your treatment.
The Pelleve treatment is delivered using GlideSafe, handpieces that have been developed to safely deliver radiofrequency energy into delicate areas, where your skin has become thinner during the natural aging process. Pelleve has been known to give you an instant glow resulting in a smoother appearance and younger-looking skin. You will be able to return to your normal day-to-day activities immediately after your treatment.
What are the results of a Pelleve treatment?
As Pelleve heats the deep layers of your skin, the collagen in your skin contracts and tightens. After the treatment, and for months afterwards, your skin will start to produce new collagen. The result is improved skin tightness and wrinkle reduction you can see and feel.
This safe, effective treatment provides results after just one session and with each additional treatment, results continue to improve. For many, the results last up to a year.
