What is PellevéTM?
Pellevé is a new innovation for smoother, tighter skin—now cleared to treat facial wrinkles without surgery.
How long does a Pellevé procedure take?
Your Pellevé procedure will typically take about 45 to 60 minutes for a full facial treatment. Because Pellevé doesn’t require anesthesia or downtime, it fits easily into your busy schedule.
How does Pellevé work?
Pellevé precisely heats the deep layers of your skin using advanced radiowave 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.
When will I see results, and how often is treatment recommended?
Many people start to see results immediately after just one treatment, with lasting improvement for up to 6 months as your skin produces new collagen. Your doctor will recommend the number of treatments that would be most beneficial for you.
What parts of my body can be treated with Pellevé?
Pellevé can be used to treat the skin on the face, including the eye area.
How is Pellevé different from other skin tightening treatments?
Pellevé has been proven to provide safe and effective skin tightening in medical studies. Because Pellevé is a non-invasive procedure, meaning no surgery is required, there are minimal side effects and discomfort. Unlike other skin tightening systems, no anesthesia or skin cooling is needed during your Pellevé procedure, so you can return to home or work immediately following treatment.
What should I expect during the procedure?
You will feel a deep warming sensation each time the Pellevé handpiece touches the area being treated. Because no anesthetic is required, you’ll be able to describe the depth of the feeling to your doctor, which will help to ensure the best possible results.
What should I expect after the procedure?
Possible side effects of Pellevé include mild discomfort during the procedure within the area that was treated. Mild swelling and redness may occur which typically go away within 2 to 24 hours.
Q: Does Pellevé have FDA clearance?
A: Pellevé has received clearance from the FDA for the non-invasive treatment of mild to moderate facial wrinkles for certain skin types. Talk to your doctor to find out if Pellevé is right for your skin.
