The FDA-approved PelleFirm® System provides a non-invasive, pain free treatment for the tightening the skin on the body, resulting in a firmer, more toned appearance and a reduction in the appearance of cellulite. PelleFirm® is ideal for treating skin around the abdomen which has become lax as a result of ageing or childbirth, and also tackles problem areas including flabby, wrinkled and loose skin on the upper arms, neck, buttocks and thighs. It works on any skin type and well as tightening the skin. PelleFirm® also works to reduce the dimpled appearance of cellulite because of its unique massage function. Small spheres on the device’s massage head work gently but effectively on the skin and encourage movement of underlying fluids into areas where they can be naturally excreted via the body’s lymphatic system.
How does PelleFirm® work?
PelleFirm® works on the skin using a combination of Radio Frequency (RF) energy and mechanical massage for deep tissue heating. PelleFirm‘s advanced radiofrequency technology emits energy in the form of electromagnetic waves to heat skin tissue without damaging the skin’s epidermis. The heat induces collagen denaturation and collagen contraction. This protein stimulation causes new collagen and elastin formation and production in the dermis and existing bands of collagen tighten in fatty areas. The result is the tightening of the epidermis and a noticeable improvement in skin quality and texture.
What does the PelleFirm® treatment feel like?
The PelleFirm® treatment is virtually painless and feels like a hot stone massage. Because the PelleFirm® hand piece is small and lightweight it is also a very versatile treatment which can be used across any area of the body, and is able to access all its contours. While the treatment is commonly used to provide skin tightening, reduce skin laxity and wrinkles and a produces a temporary reduction in the appearance of cellulite, it can also be used for the treatment of certain medical conditions such as relief of pain, muscle spasms, and to increase circulation.
Is there any downtime?
PelleFirm Body Treatment can be administered on all skin types and is an effective way to deliver visible results without pain or downtime.
How long does the PelleFirm® treatment last?
Depending on the size of the area, it usually takes about an hour to treat the abdomen, arms, thighs or buttocks. It is pain free and it feels like a hot stone massage. There is no downtime. Many patients see immediate results after just one treatment but you will continue to see improvement for up to six months from new collagen production with “long lasting” results.
How is PelleFirm® different than similar devices and treatments?
A PelleFirm® treatment is comfortable and effective. It requires little to no before or after treatment care and can be done immediately before an important event or as a supporting treatment in your overall health regimen. PelleFirm® is a safe and effective solution for patients seeking non-surgical options to improve the appearance of their bodies.
