Pelleve Q & A
What is Pellevé?
Created by Cynosure, Pellevé is a non-invasive radio-frequency treatment that reduces the appearance of facial wrinkles and fine lines by heating layers of skin and stimulating the production of collagen. Collagen is a naturally produced substance that keeps the skin looking plump and youthful. Unfortunately, as a person ages, their body produces less collagen and the skin begins to thin and sag.
Pellevé is most effective when the patient has a series of treatments, taking place once a month. Pellevé treatments last for between 30-60 minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated. Pellevé is a relatively comfortable treatment and patients do not need any anesthesia during the treatment. Many patients notice a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles after just 1 treatment with the full effects becoming noticeable after a series of treatments.
The doctors at New Life Wellness and Medical Spa will make a recommendation on the number of treatments needed following your consultation.
What skin concerns are treated with Pellevé?
The doctors at New Life Wellness and Medical Spa often recommend Pellevé treatments to address cosmetic concerns including:
- Wrinkles and loose skin on the neck and chest
- Crow’s feet
- Loose or sagging skin on the face such as jowls
- Fine lines and wrinkles on the face
How does Pellevé work?
Pellevé treatments deliver targeted radiofrequency waves to the deep layers of dermal tissue underneath the epidermis. The radiofrequency energy creates heat that stimulates collagen production while also strengthening the existing collagen. The increased collagen production helps the skin to tighten and reduces the appearance of loose or crepey skin, wrinkles, and fine lines. Your doctor will massage the target areas with the Pellevé hand wand while delivering the radiofrequency waves to your face.
Patients often describe this noninvasive treatment as a warm massage. No anesthetic is needed and there is almost no recovery time needed. In fact, many patients have Pellevé treatments during their lunch breaks and are able to immediately return to work after their session.
How long do Pelleve results last?
You should begin to see improvements in your skin right after your first treatment, and your face will only continue to look smoother and firmer as time goes on. However, Pelleve is not a permanent fix for aging. After about six months, you may need a maintenance treatment to keep your wrinkles away.
