Pellevé is a treatment to gain smoother, tighter skin. This treatment is used to tighten sagging skin around the jowls and under the chin, lines or folds between the eyebrows, mild forehead lines, crows feet or unwanted expression lines.
A Pellevé treatment delivers constant, gradual radiofrequency energy deeply into the skin, causing heat to build up where the skin and fat layer meet. The increasing heat modifies the collagen bundles deep in the skin, causing contraction and stimulating the growth of new collagen over time. The result is firmer, tighter younger looking skin. At least three treatments are usually required to obtain the maximum result but improvements can be seen after the very first treatment.
Benefits and Application
Pellevé is a pleasant, comfortable treatment with immediate and lasting improvement. There is virtually no pain or downtime – patients who have had a Pellevé treatment say it feels like a warm facial massage.
Using the Ellman Surgitron Pellevé GlideSafe handpiece the skin is gradually heated to an optimum temperature. The handpiece has an innovative sensor which is designed to stop energy flow when the device senses loss of contact with skin improving safety and allowing the patient to control the depth of feeling.
Pellevé precisely delivers energy to the dermal tissue using advanced radiofrequency technology to induce collagen contraction without damaging the epidermis. The result is skin tightening and contouring with a noticeable improvement in skin quality and texture.
Possible side effects of Pellevé include mild discomfort during the procedure within the area being treated. Mild swelling and redness may occur but typically disappear within 2 to 24 hours.
One to four treatments are required to obtain maximum results. Depending on the size of the area to be treated and the time taken, the cost range from $390 – $600.
