What is Pelleve? Pelleve is the wrinkle-fighter via what is considered the most comfortable process. Developed with a gradual dermal skin heating process using Radio Frequency, Pelleve gently builds collagen-boosting heat levels until your skin reaches a designated temperature. This increased temperature is what begins the process of skin tightening and wrinkle smoothing. At Total Dermatology we strive to deliver the best Pelleve Irvine has to offer.
The process, although somewhat similar to Thermage, delivers the skin-boosting heat in a different way. Pelleve uses a smooth, consistent radiofrequency delivery process that is not based on “pulse” like that of Thermage or some of the other RF energy devices on the market.
Pelleve is FDA approved for safely treating mild to moderate wrinkling. Newly formed collagen is tighter and firmer. Just as fabric in our clothing, or elastic in a waistband loses its ability to return to its original shape, our skin’s collagen and elastic fibers do the same thing. The heat generated from the treatment, and the subsequent new elastic fiber growth, are what make your skin recapture some of its smoothness and firmness.
A single Pelleve treatment may provide visible subtle results and a 2nd or 3rd treatment will build upon those initial improvements. You decide when you’ve reached the look you want.
Basically nothing. We’ll encourage our Irvine Pelleve patients to use sun protection, but there is no aftercare or concern. You may experience a little bit of puffiness or redness that goes away very quickly.
