Pelleve & Pellefirm is for patients who want smoother, younger looking skin without surgery or injections.
Art of SKIN Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery is now offering Pellevé RF Wrinkle Reduction treatments. Pellevé, is proven to be safe and effective for the treatment of wrinkles. It uses radiofrequency (RF) waves to gently heat deep layers of the skin, encouraging the natural growth of new collagen over time.
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. 30, 60, 90 days after treatment your body is still working to naturally grow new collagen. Because Pellevé triggers your body’s natural reaction to rebuild collagen weeks after the procedure, a series of treatments will give you optimal results.
Pellevé treatments typically range from 15 to 45 minutes, depending on the area treated. 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. After the procedure you might have slight redness, which is caused by your skin’s elevated temperatures during treatment and will subside soon afterwards. You will be able to return to your normal day-to-day activities immediately after the procedure.
Unlike laser or CO2 resurfacing, there is no risk to sun exposure following treatment and patients can return to normal activities immediately. “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.
We normally recommend 3 – 5 treatments about 4 weeks apart to boost the collagen rebuilding process. For optimal results, work with your provider to develop a treatment plan designed specifically for you.
