What is Pellevé®?
Pellevé® is a non-invasive skin tightening treatment that visibly reduces wrinkles and smoothes the face. Pellevé® is the most significant advancement in non-surgical skin tightening therapy available today. Using continuous, high frequency, radio wave energy (RF), Pellevé® generates heat in the skin, which causes it to contract. Aging and sun damage cause the collagen in the skin to become less dense and less tightly bound. Fibrous bands that hold your skin firmly to the muscle also weaken, causing the skin to lose definition and sag. Pellevé® heats the collagen to a point that it can release and re-contract, resulting in tighter skin without pain.
Pellevé® is an FDA-approved system available only through trained skin care professionals to treat facial wrinkles and smooth and tighten the skin. Not only is Pellevé® effective in treating a common problem that comes with natural aging, it is easy to use and can reduce the appearance of wrinkles in less than an hour! Pellevé® delivers quick results and is rarely accompanied by side effects or other complications.
What happens during Pellevé® treatment?
Pellevé® uses new and advanced radio wave technology to heat the deepest layers of skin without causing any of the skin damage associated with sunburns and skin cancer. A special Pellevé® hand piece will be used on the wrinkled skin. Every time this Pellevé® hand piece is used, a warming sensation will be felt. Once heated, the collagen in the deepest skin layer contracts, forcing new collagen to be formed after the treatment. This newer collagen quickly creates a smoother appearance in the uppermost layer of skin. This short time is possible because a Pellevé® treatment does not involve any incisions or anesthesia. Treatment takes between 45 minutes and an hour to complete.
On what part of the body is Pellevé® used?
Pellevé® procedure is used to treat facial skin. Most patients request the procedure be targeted at the wrinkles formed at the corners of the eyelids, otherwise known as “crow’s feet.” Pellevé® also is very effective in treating the wrinkles that stretch between the nose and the corners of one’s mouth, commonly referred to as “smile lines” or “laugh lines.”
Who is a candidate for Pellevé®?
Candidates for Pellevé® are healthy women and men, usually middle aged and older. Most Pellevé® candidates have fine lines on the face, or wrinkled or drooping skin. Pellevé® is most appropriate and effective for those with mild to moderate facial wrinkles.
What are the results of the procedure?
The results from Pellevé® include smoother skin, elimination or reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, and the tightening of sagging skin. Pellevé® was approved by the FDA in 2009 because it is safe to use and brings about effective results with minimal complications. This FDA approval came after the delivery of a clinical study that proved that following a single treatment of Pellevé® on patient’s skin is visibly tightened and appears smoother for a minimum of six months.
