Pelleve

As we age, collagen and fat (specifically in the face) begin to break down. These losses contribute to the cause of wrinkles, loose, and tired looking skin over time. Pelleve is non-invasive spa-like treatment that improves the appearance of fine lines and rejuvenates tired skin. It also helps firm and tighten the skin, giving it a little lift where need be.

Unlike a laser, Pelleve uses radiofrequency technology to heat the deep layers of tissue to a therapeutic temperature which stimulates production of new collagen in the face, improving the appearance of fine lines, including skin close to the eyes. By pushing heat deep into the tissues, the skin contracts causing a tightening effect and lift. Patients especially love this treatment if they experience tired eyes, drooping eyelids, and sagging skin around the lower face.

Patients with any skin type are a great candidate for Pelleve. This is also a safe and complementary treatment for patients with Botox and dermal fillers. While Botox and fillers are safe and effective, it’s recommended to have treatments that treat the health of your skin and stimulate collagen production, like Pelleve and laser resurfacing. If you’re seeking a true no-downtime treatment, Pelleve is great solution.

Because this is a gentler treatment, patients between the ages of 30 to 60 years old will typically benefit most. A series of three to five treatment is recommended, initially. Following the treatment, which can take between 20 to 45 minutes, patients often see some minor pink or redness for about an hour and then are left with glowing, refreshed looking skin. Over the span of the next couple weeks and months your skin will produce new collagen improving the appearance of any fine lines.
