Pelleve Skin Tightening Treatment

The Pellevé™ Skin Tightening Treatment is a safe, non-surgical procedure to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles through facial and neck tightening as well as brow lifting. For patients who want to tighten the skin and reduce wrinkles on the face or neck, Pellevé is a fast, virtually painless treatment with little to no side effects and no downtime.

The Pellevé treatment can
  • Be performed in-office in under an hour
  • Create noticeable results right away
  • Provides long-lasting results

Pellevé Treatment Procedure

Pellevé uses advanced radio wave technology to heat deep layers of the skin without damaging the top layer of the skin, known as the epidermis. This heating procedure causes the skin to tighten and start the production of new collagen. Collagen, in turn, continues tightening and firming the face for long-lasting results.

Before and After Photos of a Pelleve Patient

Most patients see results after one treatment and continue to see tightening for up to six months. The gentle, non-invasive procedure requires no injections and no anesthesia. Patients feel a deep warming sensation during treatment and may see mild redness or swelling for two to twenty-four hours after the procedure.

Pellevé is safe for treating any area of the neck or face, including the eye area. The treatment helps patients look naturally refreshed and promotes a more youthful appearance. Patients can return home or to work and can apply makeup directly after treatment.

Treatment sessions typically take an hour, making Pelleve perfect for patients with little time to spare for anti-aging procedures. Repeat treatments will keep the skin looking smooth and refreshed.

Post-Treatment Expectations

No recovery time is needed after Pellevé treatments. A slight redness or swelling may occur in the treatment area and disappear within a few hours. It is important to wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher to prevent sun damage and maintain the results of the treatment. Typically patients will see visible tightening and lifting immediately after the first treatment.

Technical details about Pellevé

Pellevé is a monopolar radiofrequency (RF) device for skin tightening.  The radiofrequency precisely induces collagen contraction, resulting in a smoothing and lifting effect. The energy from the RF also can reduce lesions, leading to improved texture in the skin.
