Pellevé is a wrinkle reduction treatment that uses radiofrequency technology to heat the deep layers of the skin, which helps stimulate the natural regeneration of your own collagen.
Pellevé is recommended for all skin phototypes with mild to moderate facial wrinkles who would like to revitalize their skin for a smoother , more youthful look.
Specialized handpieces are used to deliver radiofrequency energy to the skin without ablating the surface. The heat generated by radio waves helps break down collagen in the dermal layer of skin. The body responds by growing new collagen, which helps soften lines and wrinkles on the surface of the skin.
Tell your clinician if you have a pacemaker defibrillator implant, or auto-immune disease., as the Pellevé. procedure may not be right for you.
Although some patients report visible results with as little as one treatment, a series of monthly treatments is recommended with yearly touch-ups for optimal results. Your physician or aesthetician can recommend the right amount of treatments for you.
You should avoid acne medication and retinals on the treatment area for at least a week prior the procedure. Please come well hydrated and remove all make-up prior to your appointment. You may reapply make-up and return to normal activities immediately following treatment. Although there are no restrictions to sunlight exposure, it is always advisable to use broadspectrum SPF on a daily basis.
You may see temporary results for up to 24 hours resulting from the elevation of skin temperature. However, the process of regenerating collagen takes time, and therefore results will continue to improve over the next several months. Since the effects are gradual, comparison with pre-treatment photograph is recommended to demonstrate the results.
