PelleFirm Skin Tightening for the Body

PelleFirm™ is a newly FDA approved procedure designed to help tighten the skin on the body with potential side benefits of cellulite improvement.

Heat = Collagen Action

This radio frequency device painlessly heats skin tissue to a collagen-changing 45 degrees Celsius. At this temperature (equivalent to 113 Fahrenheit), the body’s typical response is one of collagen tightening and new collagen production.

Although the final effects occur over a series of treatments,  you’ll likely see tighter skin right away while increasing firmness occurs over time.

Why PelleFirm™ Instead of Other Technologies?

PelleFirm is not a “one-time” procedure and therefore it doesn’t require aggressive levels of energy. This allows lower levels of treatment energy that are cumulatively effective and rather than hurt, it feels like a nice warm massage. Plan on 4-6 treatments to see visible smoothing and tightening effects.

PelleFirm is the body technology based upon the very successful Pelleve “wrinkle wand” technology for the face.
