Pellevé skin tightening is a highly effective, innovative non-invasive procedure for improving skin quality and wrinkles. Neither drugs nor anesthetics are required for the procedure, so there are minimal side effects and very little discomfort. Pellevé also has the fastest recovery time of any skin tightening procedure. What makes the Pellevé method so unique is the absence of anesthesia, as well as no ‘skin cooling’ or numbness. The patient can offer immediate and accurate feedback to the technician during the procedure, ensuring precise results. Pellevé skin tightening is a virtually painless procedure, requiring no recovery time, so this quick and easy procedure will easily fit into the busiest patients’ schedule.
Skin Tightening and Wrinkles
Pellevé is used to cosmetically correct facial wrinkles. Possible side effects of Pellevé are mild swelling or redness. These mild side effects can occur after any kind of radiofrequency skin treatment, and are temporary. Studies show that if they do occur, they go away within two to 24 hours after the treatment.
Pellevé Skin Tightening: How it Works
Using FDA approved radiowave technology, Pellevé focuses heat onto the deep layers of your skin without damaging any of the layers in-between. This heat stimulates the collagen, causing your skin layers to contract, thus tightening the skin. Following this treatment, the skin begins producing new collagen, resulting in improved skin quality, firmness, and tightness you will notice immediately – and so will your friends. Pellevé skin tightening is normally performed on facial skin, especially the areas around the eyes, but can be used in most wrinkle locations. During the procedure, you may feel a pleasant warming feeling when the Pellevé head contacts the treatment area.
