How does Pelleve work?
The Pelleve System 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: firmer, tighter younger looking skin.
How does Radio Frequency affect skin tightening?
RF produces a mild increase in the temperature of the skin and subcutaneous area below the skin. When this warming is sustained for several minutes collagen synthesis begins. If the RF is focused and sufficient in these areas it will cause the collagen to heat to a level where it will contract and start to tighten and lift the skin.
This immediate effect is then followed by the production of new collagen, which re-models and tightens naturally over time, producing an underlying natural firming, tightening and lifting of the skin over several treatments.
The Pelleve Experience
You can feel the Pelleve difference. The Pelleve treatment is virtually painless and generally quite pleasurable, unlike many other energy based procedures. It is a very comfortable skin tightening treatment that takes less than an hour. You can go back to work and resume your normal routine right away, and no one will know you have had anything done. You will appear more radiant! Don’t be hesitant to do the Pelleve treatment before an event, it will add the perfect lift and glow!
“Skin tightening is huge in Hollywood. I’ve done several actress’ eyelids and brows right before red carpet events, because instantly the skin looks incredibly taught, and there’s no downtime”
