Pellevé skin tightening is a highly effective non-surgical procedure for improving skin quality and wrinkles. Neither drugs nor anesthetics are required for the procedure, so there are minimal side effects and very little discomfort. Pellevé also has the fastest recovery time of any skin tightening procedure. What makes the Pellevé method so unique is the absence of anesthesia, as well as no ‘skin cooling' or numbness. The patient can offer immediate and accurate feedback to the technician during the procedure, ensuring precise results. Pellevé skin tightening is a virtually painless procedure, requiring no recovery time, so this quick and easy procedure will easily fit into the busiest patients' schedule.
Skin Tightening and Wrinkles
Pellevé is used to cosmetically correct facial wrinkles. Possible side effects of Pellevé are mild swelling or redness. These mild side effects can occur after any kind of radiofrequency skin treatment, and are temporary. Studies show that if they do occur, they go away within two to 24 hours after the treatment.
Pellevé Skin Tightening: How it Works
Using FDA approved radiowave technology, Pellevé focuses heat onto the deep layers of your skin without damaging any of the layers in-between. This heat stimulates the collagen, causing your skin layers to contract, thus tightening the skin. Following this treatment, the skin begins producing new collagen, resulting in improved skin quality, firmness, and tightness you will notice immediately - and so will your friends. Pellevé skin tightening is normally performed on facial skin, especially the areas around the eyes, but can be used in most wrinkle locations. During the procedure, you may feel a pleasant warming feeling when the Pellevé head contacts the treatment area.
The Pellevé Procedure and Expected Results
For a full facial treatment, Pellevé takes about 45 to 60 minutes to complete. Pellevé does not require anesthesia or recovery time, making it easy to fit the treatment into your schedule. You will begin to see results immediately after the first treatment, lasting for up to six months, as long as your skin produces new collagen. Seek your doctors' recommendation as to the number of treatments that would be suitable for your specific case.
How Pellevé Differs From Other Skin Tightening Treatments
Pellevé has proven case studies to show that the treatment is a safe and effective skin tightening alternative. Pellevé is a non-surgical procedure, that does not require incisions or cause scarring. The side effects are minimal and the discomfort level very low. Other skin tightening systems require anesthesia, and patients experience numbness during and after the procedure. With Pellevé, you can go home or to work immediately after your treatment.
