Pelleve Wrinkle Reduction Q & A

 

What age-related facial concerns are treated by Pellevé?

Your skin naturally produces less collagen and elastin as you get older. Long-term exposure to sunlight further damages both substances. As a result, your skin loses strength and elasticity and becomes looser and more susceptible to wrinkles.

Pellevé is FDA-cleared to treat those issues as it diminishes:

  • Crow’s feet
  • Eyelid wrinkles
  • Loose skin above or below your eyes
  • Lines between your eyebrows
  • Forehead lines
  • Smile lines, creases, and wrinkles around your mouth
  • Nasolabial folds (wrinkles running from your nose to the corners of your mouth)

How does Pellevé work?

The Pellevé system uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to gently warm the skin deep below the surface. When RF energy enters targeted tissues, the heat has three effects:

  • Tightens skin immediately as old collagen contracts
  • Stimulates production of new collagen and elastin
  • Improves blood flow in the treated area

Your body naturally sheds old layers of skin at the surface. Then it’s replaced with rejuvenated skin that’s tighter, stronger, and more elastic, thanks to the effect of RF energy.

What can you expect during treatment?

Pellevé’s RF energy is delivered through the GlideSafe® handpiece, which was specifically developed for facial skin, including the delicate area around your eyes. Treatment is gentle and comfortable, and most patients compare their Pellevé session to a relaxing, hot stone massage.

One session typically takes 45-60 minutes, but that’s for an entire face, so the length of your session varies depending on the area being treated. Slight redness that appears in the treated areas resolves quickly. You don’t need to schedule downtime, so you can get back to your normal activities as soon as your session is finished.

When will you see results?

You’ll notice an immediate tightening effect, although that’s temporary. Longer-lasting results appear gradually, because it takes time to synthesize new collagen. You should see significant results within 30 days, then your skin continues to produce new collagen for 60-90 days, resulting in ongoing tightening and diminished wrinkles.*

Dr. Sannoh develops an individualized treatment plan for each patient. For optimal collagen regeneration, you may need three to five treatments spaced about four weeks apart, but each person’s skin and results are different.
