Skin Tightening – The Science behind the Pelleve’ System
Pelleve’ precisely delivers energy to the dermal (deep) tissue using advanced radio-frequency technology to induce collagen contraction without damaging the epidermis (surface). This collagen and protein stimulation causes new collagen formation deep in the dermal layers, while existing bands of collagen tighten in subcutaneous fat, creating surface tightening in the epidermis.
The Pelleve’ System offers a different type of experience; a pleasant and more natural one, with results you can feel good about.
Pelleve’ can be used to treat the following:
Sagging skin under the chin
Wrinkles around the mouth
Lines or folds between the eyebrows
Lines on the forehead
Excess skin on the upper eyelid
Tired or unhappy expression
Frequently Asked Questions
Is the Pelleve’ System FDA approved? In 2009, the FDA approved the Pelleve’ System for the treatment of mild to moderate facial wrinkles.
Is the Pelleve System safe? Clinical studies have proven that Pelleve’ treatments are a safe and effective way to reduce wrinkles without surgery. The side effects and discomfort are minimal, and no anesthetics are used or needed during the procedure.
How many treatments do I need? Many people see results immediately after just one treatment. For most patients, a series of three treatments spaced about one month apart may be recommended for optimal improvement. Additional treatments should be scheduled for long term maintenance; frequency will be determined by you and your board certified skin care specialist.
How long do the results last? The overall result of a Pellevé treatment is noticeable improvement in skin quality and appearance with minimal side effects and no recovery time. Results continue to improve for six months.
How soon will I see an improvement? In most cases you will see a visible tightening and lifting effect immediately after one session. Your skin will feel firmer and smoother as the texture and tone improves.
How long is the treatment? Depending on which areas you are having done, it usually takes from 20 minutes for just the eye area up to 60 minutes for a full face treatment.
What can I expect after a treatment? There is no recovery time needed after a Pelleve’ treatment. You may be slightly pink with mild swelling for a few hours. You can wear makeup right away and resume normal activities, so it fits easily into a busy schedule.
Can a Pelleve’ treatment be combined with other cosmetic treatments? Dr. Wilcox frequently recommends combining the Pelleve’ System with wrinkle relaxing agents and dermal fillers.
