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. George Kamajian. Pellevé treatments typically range from 15 to 45 minutes, depending on the area treated.
In FDA clinical trials, nearly 90% of patients retained photographic improvement at 6 months following treatment, and 85% of patients reported overall satisfaction in skin’s laxity, smoothness, and brightness.
What is Pellevé?
Pellevé is the preferred skin tightening protocol at Dr. K’s Med Spa. It’s a noninvasive treatment that deploys radiofrequency waves to heat up the deep layers of your skin.
Heat is effective for stimulating collagen and elastin production. Immediately following your Pellevé session, you’ll notice that your skin is tighter, firmer, and more smooth.
What conditions does Pellevé treat?
The skilled aesthetic team at Dr. K’s Med Spa uses Pellevé to treat a variety of troublesome skin conditions, such as:
- Fine lines
Pellevé is also helpful if you want to minimize the appearance of scars or acne pockmarks.
What happens during a Pellevé skin tightening treatment?
Once in your private room at Dr. K’s Med Spa, you’ll recline on a treatment table. Your aesthetician glides a small wand over your skin in the designated areas. You’ll feel your skin get warm, as if you were in a relaxing bath. The innovative device has a built-in cooling mechanism, so your skin never gets too hot and you don’t feel any pain.
The entire procedure takes about 30 minutes and there’s no downtime, so you can go right back to your normal daily activities afterward.
Is Pellevé safe?
Pellevé is safe regardless of your age or skin type. In addition to having low to no risks, most men and women report that the procedure is comfortable, relaxing, and therapeutic.
How many Pellevé treatments do I need?
Your personal aesthetic consultant analyzes your skin and develops a custom plan to help you reach your specific goals. In general, most patients do best with about three treatments, but you’ll see results after your initial appointment.
RE-“ELASTISIZING” YOUR ELASTIN FIBERS
Pellevé is FDA approved for safely treating mild to moderate wrinkling and provides an appreciable level of skin tightening over time as the new collagen being formed is tighter and firmer. Just as fabric in our clothing, or elastic in a waist band loses its ability to return to its original shape, our skin’s collagen and elastic fibers do the same thing. The heat generated from the treatment, and the subsequent new elastic fiber growth, are what make your skin recapture some of its smoothness and firmness.
