Smooth Those Lines With Skin Tightening
July 6, 2018
Looking for a refreshed youthful appearance with no needles or surgery? Are you searching for a skin tightening option that won’t make you look like you “had something done?”
It’s not fair that as we age, collagen production slows down causing our skin to lose laxity and firmness. Okay, the scientific talk is over, time to focus on smoothing out those wrinkles, fine lines around the eyes, smile lines, frown lines on your forehead, crow’s feet, and other bothersome creases.
Snap your fingers, Pellevé to the rescue.
What is Pellevé?
Pellevé is a safe and effective option that is a series of treatments to boost the collagen rebuilding process. “The Pellevé treatment is a great non-invasive, virtually painless way to revitalize the skin, and can be customized based on the patients’ needs from a full-face treatment to targeting smaller areas, such as crow’s feet,” stated Dr. Paul Lubitz. Unlike other radiofrequency devices, this is done in a very gradual and gentle manner.
How does it work?
The Pellevé system uses radiofrequency technology to gently warm the skin deep beneath the surface, which over time, stimulates the body’s natural production of new collagen. It uses a wavelength that is similar to marine radio and focuses it into the skin. Even 30, 60, 90 days after treatment your body is still working to naturally grow new collagen. This is because Pellevé triggers your body’s natural reaction to rebuild collagen weeks after the procedure, that is why a series of treatments will give you optimal results!

What to expect after your treatment
There is usually immediate skin tightening post-treatment. They call this the “instant glow.” 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 afterward. You will be able to return to your normal day-to-day activities immediately after your treatment.
