Skin Tightening Q&A


Pelleve Logo

How does the Pelleve system work?

The Pelleve system uses radiofrequency technology to gently warm the skin deep beneath the surface, which over time, stimulates the body’s natural production of new collagen. 30, 60, 90 days after treatment your body is still working to naturally grow new collagen. Because Pellevé triggers your body’s natural reaction to rebuild collagen weeks after the procedure, a series of treatments will give you optimal results!


Is the Pelleve system right for me?PelleFirm

Pellevé is ideal for men and women with all skin phototypes. Unlike most laser treatments, Pellevé is gentle on the skin and is safe to use all year round, regardless of tan skin.


How can I expect to feel during and after the procedure?

Pellevé is a comfortable, safe procedure that doesn’t have any downtime. Patients have reported that it feels similar to a relaxing hot stone massage. After the procedure you might have slight redness, which is caused by your skin’s elevated temperatures during treatment and will subside soon afterwards. You will be able to return to your normal day-to-day activities immediately after the procedure.


How long does the treatment take?

Treating the entire face takes anywhere from 45-60 min. If you would like a specific area treated (e.g., the delicate areas around your eyes, forehead, or smile lines) your procedure could be completed in as little as 30 minutes! Because the collagen rebuilding process continues to work days, weeks, even months after your treatment, a series of treatments are required for the best results.


How many treatments are recommended?

3 – 5 treatments are recommended about 4 weeks apart to boost the collagen rebuilding process. For optimal results, work with your provider to develop a treatment plan designed specifically for you.
