What is Pelleve?
Pelleve is a non-surgical device which is used to tighten and firm skin from the inside out by stimulating the growth of collagen under the skin.
- Uses radio frequency to tighten skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
- Three 45 minute treatments
- Immediate results after first session
How does Pelleve work?
Using a steady stream of radio frequency energy, the Pelleve device heats and modifies the skin's collagen layer. Over time, the collagen begins contracting and as new collagen begins to grow, patients see tighter, firmer skin.
Patients see results right away with continued improvement for as long as 6 months. After treatment, normal activities can be resumed right away, and patients report there is very little pain with Pelleve, even without the use of topical anesthetic. The procedure is FDA approved and each package of treatments includes three 45 minute treatments for optimal results.
Why is Pelleve different than other skin tightening treatments?
Pelleve uses one of the smallest treatment tips available, enabling physicians to treat smaller areas such as the eyes where large tips cannot provide adequate energy delivery.
What are the risks of Pelleve?
Complications are very rare with the most common side effect being redness in the treatment area that typically resolves in 1-2 days.
