Pellevé® is a skin firming procedure that is FDA-cleared to treat facial wrinkles without the need for surgery. It is designed to create a refreshed appearance with noticeably firmer and smoother skin. The device works by heating deep skin layers with radiofrequency energy, which does not damage the outer layer of skin. This process causes collagen to contract and tighten, while also stimulating new collagen growth.
Commonly treated areas include forehead lines, folds between the eyebrows, crow’s feet, nasolabial folds, wrinkles around the mouth, and loose skin around the eyes. As the handpiece is guided over the target areas, you may feel a deep warming sensation. The process typically lasts about 45 minutes to an hour to treat the entire face.
Since Pellevé® is non-invasive, there is minimal discomfort, and you should be able to return to your normal activities right after treatment. It is normal to experience slight swelling and redness for up to 24 hours following your treatment. While you may begin to see changes after only one treatment, most patients require a set of three to four sessions, each spaced 30 days apart, for optimal results. When you come in for your consultation, our skin care professional can recommend the most appropriate number of treatments based on your individuals needs.
