What Is Pelleve?
Pelleve is a revolutionary non-surgical procedur to safely treat facial wrinkles with virtually no pain and little downtime. Using advanced radiowave technology, the Pelleve system precisely heats the deep layers of the skin without damaging the epidermis, or top layer. The heat causes the collagen in the skin to contract and tighten. After treatment, the skin begins to produce new collagen, which improves skin firmness. The result isa naturally refreshed appearance.
Unlike other skin tightening systems, Pelleve dosen’t require anesthesia or skin cooling so patients can return to home or work immediately after a procedure. Many people start to see results after just one treatment, with lasting improvement in skin tightness and tone for up to six months. Because a full facial treatment takes only about an hour with little, if any, recovery time. Pelleve’ fits easily into busy schedules.
What to expect during the procedure
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 doctor, which will help to ensure the best possible results.
What to expect after the procedure
Possible side effects of pelleve 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.
