Yes! Pellevé® is a wrinkle reduction treatment that uses radiofrequency technology to heat the deep layers of the skin, which helps stimulate the natural regeneration of your own collagen without affecting the surface of the skin. This new collagen production in the dermal layer helps to soften lines and wrinkles and tighten the skin.
What can Pellevé be used for?
Pellevé can treat wrinkles, skin laxity, jowls and the neck. It is particularly beneficial for facial areas that are otherwise hard to treat, such as bags and dark circles under the eyes and ageing lipstick lines. Pellevé benefits the neck as well – reducing crepey skin and tightening what many refer to as their “turkey waddle.”
Will it hurt?
No! This procedure is virtually painless with most patients reporting it feels like a hot stone massage.
How many treatments will I need?
Typically a series of 3-4 treatments about one month apart is recommended with touch-ups about twice a year for optimal results.
When can I resume normal activities after treatment?
There is no downtime with Pellevé and patients can apply make-up and return to normal activities immediately. Your skin may appear slightly pink for about ½ an hour.
When will I see results?
Most patients see temporary results for about 24 hours after treatment due to the plumping of the skin from the elevation of skin temperature. However, the process of regenerating collagen takes time, and therefore results will continue to improve over several months. The results are gradual as the collagen works under the skin.
Can I combine Pellevé with other treatments?
For deep lines and wrinkles Pellevé can be combined with dermal fillers. After a few treatments with Pellevé many patients need less filler to achieve the results they desire.
How do I get started at ESCC?
A complimentary consultation with the nurse at Enhanced Skin Care Center will help you determine how Pellevé will benefit you – as a replacement for fillers or in combination.
