Pelle Ve

About Pellevé

As we age, collagen production slows down causing our skin to lose laxity and firmness. As a result, wrinkles and fine lines form leaving you with smile lines, crow’s feet, and other bothersome creases. Pellevé is a non-invasive radiofrequency solution to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles without needles or surgery. Pellevé is a safe and effective option for a no downtime procedure that gives you a refreshed youthful appearance. A series of treatments is recommended to boost the collagen rebuilding process.

How Pellevé Works

During treatment, the GlideSafe® handpiece gradually delivers radiofrequency energy through the epidermis into the dermis. Heating of the dermal layer initiates your body’s natural response to protect, heal, and grow NEW collagen.

  • 1 – 3 days after your procedure, the area treated will have a “post-treatment glow”
  • 4 – 15 days after treatment, your body’s natural reaction to heal comes into play as fibroblasts become present, and the collagen rebuilding process begins
  • 15+ days post-treatment collagen synthesis and formal remodeling occurs.

The collagen regrowth process will continue days, weeks, even months after treatment. Thus, it is recommended to receive at least 3-5 treatments about 4 weeks apart, so you are re-boosting the collagen building process and getting optimal results.

What to expect

The Pellevé treatment is delivered using GlideSafe® handpieces that have been developed to safely deliver radiofrequency energy into delicate areas, where your skin has become thinner during the natural aging process. This includes (but is not limited to) the most delicate skin around your eyes. Pellevé has been known to give you an instant glow resulting in a smoother appearance and younger-looking skin.

Pellevé is a comfortable, safe procedure that doesn’t have any downtime. Patients have reported that it feels similar to a relaxing hot stone massage. You might have slight redness after the procedure which is caused by your skin’s elevated temperatures during the treatment, and will subside soon afterwards. You will be able to return to your normal day-to-day activities immediately after your treatment.
