Pellevé is an FDA cleared, non-surgical skin-tightening treatment. Pellevé is an advanced radiofrequency device that delivers heat to the lower layers of the skin, causing the collagen to break down and restructure as it heals. The result is a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face.
As we age, collagen in the skin naturally becomes thinner, causing the skin on top to loosen and sag. By applying gradual deep heating, Pellevé gently stimulates the collagen and causes it to thicken, thus filling in the fine lines and wrinkles.
Pellevé does not damage the epidermal layer of the skin and can be performed at any time of the year, unlike ablative laser treatments. There is no anesthesia or downtime associated with Pellevé and many patients report a comfortable and pleasant treatment experience. In fact, many patients compare Pellevé to a warm facial massage.
Pellevé is a go-to option for patients who want to rejuvenate their skin without any downtime, pain or drastic surgical measures.
A full face procedure takes less than an hour to complete with smaller areas of the face taking even less time. Patients can have the procedure and immediately return to normal activity. Because Pellevé’s sleek and unique design allows for greater control and customization, Dr. Krueger can target the treatment to specific problem areas for each patient.
Pellevé is great for full facial rejuvenation. It is especially effective for:
- Crow’s feet around the eyes
- Forehead wrinkles
- Sagging jaw lines
During the treatment, patients may experience a warm sensation on the skin or slight redness, both of which will subside once the treatment is complete. Pellevé is a go-to option for patients who want to rejuvenate their skin without any downtime, pain or drastic surgical measures. Results are both instant and will increase over time.
Pellevé is best performed in a series of three treatments spaced one month apart. During your initial consultation, Dr. Krueger will provide a customized plan based on your needs and desired results.
How Pellevé Works
During treatment, the radiofrequency handpiece gradually delivers energy through the superficial skin to the dermis. Heating of the dermis starts the 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.
