Pellevé™ wrinkle reduction is a non-invasive FDA approved procedure for the safe and effective treatment of facial wrinkles and smoother, tighter facial skin. Pellevé™ is a comfortable and pleasurable treatment. It precisely delivers energy to the dermal tissue using advanced radiofrequency technology to induce collagen contraction without damaging the epidermis, stimulating the production of new collagen in the face and around the eyes. Pellevé™ treatments can be used on all skin types and lasting improvements of up to 18 months with a single treatment. Pellevé does not cause peeling, bruising or swelling. It doesn’t require anesthesia or skin cooling, so patients can resume to normal activities right away with no downtime.
How does Pellevé™ work?
Pellevé™ is a non-invasive wrinkle reduction system. The deep penetrating radiofrequency energy of the Pellevé™ system warms the layer between your skin and underlying fat. The heat causes the collagen structure to contract and also stimulates the development of new collagen. The contraction and growth of collagen fills in the areas where you have wrinkles, and over the course of your treatments, your fine lines and wrinkles simply disappear.
How many treatments will I need?
After the first treatment with the Pellevé™ Wrinkles Reduction System, you see improvements in your skin. During the next six months, your collagen supply slowly increases, and you see subtle results week after week. For best results, up to three treatments may be recommended. The follow-up treatments are typically scheduled at one-month intervals.
How long does a Pellevé™ treatment take?
The length of your Pellevé™ treatment will vary per area. It will typically take about 60 minutes for a full facial treatment and will decrease for segmental areas. No extra time is allotted for your treatment since Pellevé™ doesn’t require anesthesia or downtime, making it easier to fit in your schedule.
Is there any downtime?
Pellevé™ treatments can be used on all skin types and it doesn’t require anesthesia or skin cooling. Pellevé™ does not cause peeling, bruising or swelling, so patients can resume to normal activities right away with no downtime.
