As we age, collagen production slows down causing our skin to lose laxity and firmness. As a result, wrinkles and fine lines form leaving you with smile lines, crow’s feet, and other bothersome creases. Pellevé is a non-invasive radio frequency solution to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles without needles or surgery. Pellevé is a safe and effective option for a no downtime procedure that gives you a refreshed youthful appearance. A series of treatments is recommended to boost the collagen rebuilding process.
How Pellevé Works
During treatment, the GlideSafe® hand piece gradually delivers radio frequency energy through the epidermis into the dermis. Heating of the dermal layer initiates your body’s natural response to protect, heal, and grow NEW collagen.
- 1 – 3 days after your procedure, the area treated will have a “post-treatment glow”
- 4 – 15 days after treatment, your body’s natural reaction to heal comes into play as fibroblasts become present, and the collagen rebuilding process begins
- 15+ days post-treatment collagen synthesis and formal remodeling occurs.
The collagen regrowth process will continue days, weeks, even months after treatment. Thus, it is recommended to receive at least 3-5 treatments about 4 weeks apart, so you are re-boosting the collagen building process and getting optimal results.
What to expect
The Pellevé treatment is delivered using GlideSafe® hand pieces that have been developed to safely deliver radio frequency energy into delicate areas, where your skin has become thinner during the natural aging process. This includes (but is not limited to) the most delicate skin around your eyes. Pellevé has been known to give you an instant glow resulting in a smoother appearance and younger looking skin.
Pellevé is a 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.
How does Pellevé work?
The Pellevé system uses radio frequency technology to gently warm the skin deep beneath the surface, which over time, stimulates the body’s natural production of new collagen. 30, 60, 90 days after treatment your body is still working to naturally grow new collagen. Because Pellevé triggers your body’s natural reaction to rebuild collagen weeks after the procedure, a series of treatments will give you optimal results!
Is Pellevé right for me?
Pellevé is ideal for men and women with all skin photo types. Unlike most laser treatments, Pellevé is gentle on the skin and is safe to use all year round, regardless of tan skin. Please discuss with your provider to determine if Pellevé is right for you.
What can I expect?
Pellevé is a comfortable, safe procedure that doesn’t have any downtime. Patients have reported that it feels similar to a relaxing hot stone massage. After the procedure you might have slight redness, which is caused by your skin’s elevated temperatures during treatment and will subside soon afterwards. You will be able to return to your normal day-to-day activities immediately after the procedure.
How long does the treatment take?
Treating the entire face takes anywhere from 45-60 min. If you would like a specific area treated (e.g., the delicate areas around your eyes, forehead, or smile lines) your procedure could be completed in as little as 30 minutes! Because the collagen rebuilding process continues to work days, weeks, even months after your treatment, a series of treatments are required for the best results.
How many treatments are recommended?
3 – 5 treatments are recommended about 4 weeks apart to boost the collagen rebuilding process. For optimal results, work with your provider to develop a treatment plan designed specifically for you.
