26 Feb 6 Questions About Pellevé
What is Pellevé & how does it work?
Pellevé is an advanced radio frequency device used for skin and collagen tightening. Pellevé is a non-invasive procedure, that is minimally painful, but achieves almost instantaneous results. The heat from the treatment will stimulate your body’s natural production of collagen resulting in the tightening of your skin.
What areas can be treated with Pellevé?
Since Pellevé is a gentle procedure it is ideal to be used on your face, eyelids, cheeks and jowls.
Pellevé will soften crows feet wrinkles and will tighten cheeks and jowls. These treatment effects can be seen immediately after a treatment.
Is Pellevé right for me?
Pellevé is an optimal treatment for both men and women of all skin types. Unlike many invasive laser treatments, Pellevé is gentle enough to be used all year round for firmer looking skin.
What can I expect?
Pellevé is a pain-free, comfortable and safe procedure that has zero downtime. Some patients in fact find it a rather soothing and enjoyable experience. The results produce tighter, firmer skin. Some redness is to be expected from the elevated skin temperature, however the procedure is gentle enough that you can get it done in your lunch break and resume normal day-to-day activities right away.
How many treatments are required?
For results that turn back the clock we recommend a course of up to six treatments. However after only one treatment you will see an improvement to your skin quality, laxity and a reduction to wrinkles and lines.
How long will the results last?
Your skin will continue to produce new collagen after the treatment. However, as this is one of our gentler collagen rejuvenating treatments, we recommend maintenance touch ups around every six months.
Risks of Treatment?
Results from our treatments and procedures vary patient to patient according to factors including genetics, age, diet and exercise. It is recommended to seek a second opinion from a Specialist Surgeon before proceeding.
Cosmetic surgery, like any medical procedure carries the risk of undesirable outcomes. More information on risks and recovery of each procedure is available on our website.
