Pelleve Tightening

The “Wrinkle Wand” for Skin Tightening

What is Pellevé? Pellevé is the wrinkle-fighter via what is considered the most comfortable process. Developed with a gradual dermal skin heating process using Radio Frequency, Pellevé 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.

The process, although somewhat similar to Thermage, delivers the skin-boosting heat in a different way. Pellevé 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.

Putting the Stretch Back Into Your Elastin Fibers

Pellevé 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 Pellevé 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.

What Aftercare is Needed?

Basically nothing. We’ll encourage you 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.
