What is Pellevé?
Pellevé is a wrinkle reduction treatment that uses radiofrequency technology to heat the deep layers of the skin, which helps stimulate the natural regeneration of collagen. No anesthesia or injections are used during the procedure.
How does Pellevé work?
Specialized handpieces are used to deliver radiofrequency to the skin without ablating the surface. The heat generated by radiowaves helps to break down collagen in the dermal layer of the skin. The body responds by growing new collagen, which helps soften lines and wrinkles on the surface of the skin.
Does the procedure hurt?
No. The procedure is virtually painless with most patients reporting the treatment feels like a hot stone massage.
Am I a candidate for Pellevé?
Pellevé is recommended for all skin phototypes with mild to moderate facial wrinkles who would like to revitalize their skin for a smoother, more youthful look.
How many treatments are needed?
Although some patients report visible results with as little as one treatment, a series of monthly treatments is recommended with yearly touch-ups for optimal results.
How to prepare for the treatment
You should avoid acne medication and retinols on the treatment area for at least a week prior to the procedure. Make sure you are well hydrated and remove all make-up prior to the appointment.
When can I return to normal activities?
You may reapply make-up and return to normal activities immediately following treatment. Although there are no restrictions to sunlight exposure, it is always advisable to use broad-spectrum SPF on a daily basis.
When will I see results?
You may see temporary results for up to 24 hours resulting from the elevation of skin temperature. However, the process of regenerating collagen takes time, and therefore results will continue to improve over the next several months.
