Have you thought about doing something about the mild to moderate wrinkles and loose skin in your face but then decided that needles, knives and lasers directed at your face are not for you? If this describes your thoughts the last time you took a good look at your face in the mirror, Pelleve or radiofrequency energy might be just what you need.
With the advances in radiofrequency energy, it is now possible to precisely heat the deep layers of our skin without damaging the epidermis or top layer. The heat causes existing collagen in your skin to contract and tighten. Also, after the procedure, your skin will start to produce new collagen. The end- result is an improvement in skin tightness and wrinkles you can see and feel.
Pelleve is FDA-approved for the non-ablative treatment of mild to moderate facial wrinkles for all skin colors. It produces an immediate result of softer lines and tighter skin, and then a more long-term result due to the stimulation of collagen remodeling that occurs over 4-6 treatments. It is currently being touted both as an “Event” treatment (think immediate improvement that is short-term) and a collagen boosting treatment that produces a long-term improvement.
It is a treatment that you can have to the whole face or a treatment that you can have to just problem areas. At Nicole Norris MD Medical Spa in Peru, Illinois, Tamara Smith, RN loves doing something she calls Pelleve Eyes. “In just 15 minutes in my procedure room, you can significantly improve any loose skin or fine lines around the eye. Because radiofrequency energy is not as dangerous to the eye as laser energy is, we can safely treat the delicate skin around the eye with Pelleve. We find that patients who are not ready for blepharoplasty (upper and lower eyelid surgery) are thrilled with this procedure.”
Pelleve can also be used to treat nasolabial folds, wrinkles around the mouth, lines between the eyebrows, lines on the forehead, crow’s feet and mild to moderate skin laxity of the face and neck. The procedure is painless and most patients report it feels like a hot stone massage. There are no restrictions after the treatment. You can immediately reapply make up and if you must be exposed to sunlight, you may. There is very little redness or swelling after Pelleve treatments which means no social downtime and no time off of work or time away from the gym.
Dr. Norris weighs in “Pelleve is the only thing I do in my medical spa that is painless, has no downtime, and creates immediate results. Patients are addicted to it. We usually space treatments out every 30 days but our patients often want to come back sooner!”
