What is radiofrequency energy and how does it tighten skin?
Pellevé or TempSure are 2 FDA-cleared devices that we utilize to tighten the skin in our practice. They are safe and effective treatments that can reverse mild to moderate skin laxity on the face or body. As people grow older, the production of collagen–the main structural protein found in the skin decreases. This causes your skin to lose firmness and flexibility, leaving behind wrinkles or crepey skin. Pellevé or TempSure are non-invasive radiofrequency solutions that can help smooth lines without any needles or surgery. These treatments can be used on the face and on the body. They have a short term immediate skin tightening result for 2-14 days and a long-term result in 3-4 months resulting from stimulating collagen production.

How does Pellevé and TempSure work?
Using the GlideSafe handpieces (Pelleve or TempSure) or Flexible adhesive applicators (FlexSure), these devices safely emit radiofrequencies to stimulates the production of new collagen by warming the skin beneath the surface. As time passes after the procedure, your body will continue to naturally produce to collagen. We recommend a series of skin tightening treatments, at least 3-5 with 2-4 weeks in between each treatment for best results.
