Let’s face it, we all wish that there was a magic wrinkle wand that could erase years from our appearance! With the Pelleve Skin Tightening Treatments we can get pretty close to making that a reality.
Pelleve is an innovative wrinkle-fighting treatment that comfortably heats the skin to boost collagen levels and stimulate the process of skin tightening and wrinkle smoothing.
The Pelleve Skin Tightening System uses Monopolar Radio Frequency delivered through a wand tipped handpiece to gently heat the skin to designated temperatures between 39 to 42 degrees Celsius. At these heat levels elastin fibers and collagen growth are stimulated to start regenerating and thus over a course of 4 to 6 treatments provide a smoother, tighter and more youthful appearance to the skin. The treatments are recommended every four weeks apart. Doing the treatments closer together will not improve the results. After one treatment some slight visible results can be seen, however it can take up to 4 to 6 treatments. Remember, it takes time for the elastin fibers and collagen to rebuild. Results can take three to nine months to fully appear as the body takes time to generate new collagen. With this treatment, you will see continual results throughout the series of treatments and even after the treatment series is completed.
The results from the Pelleve treatments can last for years, especially with Pelleve Treatment “touch-up” procedures and in using a proper skin care regimen at home. Maintenance of your results is vital because there are so many aspects our skin comes in contact with each day that breaks down elastin and collagen fibers, especially the sun. Did you know that collagen production decreases 1% with each year of age starting at about age 21? So while the Pelleve treatments do provide gratifying results, it is important to maintain those results properly. Maintenance or “touch-up” treatments are recommended anywhere from 1-3 times a year after a series of treatments. These maintenance treatments do not have to be a series but a single treatment just to maintain results. Medical Grade Skin Care Products such as Growth Factors, Topical Antioxidants, Retinols, and Sunscreens can maintain the results and even help to regenerate new collagen. A free consultation with one of our estheticians can provide you with a proper at home skin care regimen of products.
These treatments are used to target wrinkles around the eyes, fine lines to moderate facial wrinkles, neck wrinkles, chest wrinkling, jowl sagginess, neck laxity, overall facial laxity and looseness, body skin looseness. For deeper facial wrinkles, Pelleve treatments may be recommended in conjunction with other services and dermal fillers. Pelleve treatments are safe for all skin types and skin tones.
One of the greatest aspects of this treatment besides the comfort of the treatment itself (which feels like a hot stone massage) is the fact that there is no downtime and very little aftercare. As with all procedures, and just plain daily skin care in general, we highly recommend you use a medical grade broad spectrum sunscreen. This is very important because the Pelleve treatments work on stimulating elastin and collagen growth and sun exposure breaks down elastin and collagen. Hence, don’t negate your results of the treatment by overlooking daily sun protection.
