Pelleve is a revolutionary innovation for smoother, tighter skin… FDA-cleared to treat facial wrinkles without surgery.
With Pelleve, you can look and feel refreshed naturally.
Pelleve precisely heats the deep layers of your skin using advanced radiofrequency technology without damaging the epidermis, or top layer. The heat causes the collagen in your skin to contract and tighten. After the treatment, your skin will start to produce new collagen. The result is an improvement in skin quality, firmness and tightness you can see and feel.
Pelleve can be used to treat the skin on the face, including:
- Sagging skin under the chin
- Nasolabial folds
- Wrinkles around the mouth
- Lines or folds between the eyebrows
- Lines on the forehead
- Excess skin on the upper eyelid
- Crow’s feet
Many people start to see results immediately after just one Pelleve treatment.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How is Pelleve different from other skin tightening treatments?
A: Pelleve has been proven to provide safe and effective skin tightening in medical studies. Because Pelleve is a non-invasive procedure, meaning no surgery is required, there are minimal side effects and discomfort. Unlike other systems, no anesthesia or skin cooling is needed during your Pelleve procedure, so you can return to home or work immediately following treatment. Schedule a consultation with us to see if Pelleve is right for you.
Q: What should I expect during the procedure?
A: You will feel a deep warming sensation each time the Pelleve handpiece touches the area being treated. Because no anesthetic is required, you’ll be able to describe the depth of the feeling to your esthetician, which will help to ensure the best possible results.
Q: How long does a Pelleve procedure take?
A: Your Pelleve procedure will typically take about 45 to 60 minutes for a full facial treatment. Because Pelleve doesn’t require anesthesia or downtime, it fits easily into your busy schedule.
Q: What should I expect afterward?
A: You should expect to be able to return to your daily activities with no downtime at all. There is no restriction from being in the sun and you can also apply makeup immediately after the procedure. Some patients experience mild swelling and redness which typically go away within 2 to 24 hours.
