The Pellevé Skin Tightening procedure consists of an FDA approved non-invasive wrinkle reduction device. Pellevé is a radiofrequency device that improves skin texture and appearance. Pellevé emits radio energy as electromagnetic waves. The heat is safely absorbed by the skin and stimulates and triggers the production of collagen. This results in smoother, nicer skin.

This procedure provides patients with a smoother, more contoured and youthful face. The Pellevé System treats premature aging signs without need for any anesthesia. This non-invasive wrinkle reduction and skin tightening system has little to no pain and recovery time. Most patients experience great results after just one skin procedure. Patients report that results can last for up to 6 months and based on the skin condition, they may last up to 1.5 years* The wrinkle treatment can be performed on even the most parts of your face: cheekbones, jaw line, forehead, upper lip and neck.

How is Pellevé Different from Other Skin Treatments?

Pellevé provides safe and effective skin tightening and improvement.  Pellevé is a non-invasive procedure with minimal side effects and discomfort. No anesthesia or skin cooling is needed during the Pellevé procedure. There is minimal downtime from this treatment so patients may return to work or normal act ivies right after the treatment.

What should patients expect During the Procedure?

Patients will feel a deep warming sensation each time the Pellevé hand piece touches the area being treated. Patients are able to describe the depth of the feeling to your practitioner, which will help to ensure the best possible results. Before beginning the procedure, a protective gel will be applied on the face so that the radio frequency energy can go safely, deep into the skin dermis.

What areas can be treated?

The wrinkle treatment is suitable for reducing facial wrinkles and skin tightening on areas such as the chest, back of hands, décolletage areas, and neck

How Long Does a Pellevé Procedure Take?

Pellevé procedures will typically take about 45 to 60 minutes for a full facial treatment.

What Should I Expect Afterward?

During their Pellevé treatments, patients sometimes report mild discomfort in the treated area. Mild Swelling and redness may occur which typically go away within 2 to 24 hours.
