We are dedicated to the best in show when it comes to rejuvenating and supportive treatments for the skin and superficial tissue. As such, ReDerm MD researches the latest technologies designed for various cosmetic uses. For the correction and management of skin laxity, we use Pellevé. This innovative skin-tightening treatment gradually reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles naturally, all through the stimulation of collagen production. It uses radiofrequency energy to increase tissue temperature in a controlled manner, just enough to achieve its desired result, consistently smooth, youthful skin.
How Pellevé Tightens Skin
We believe that Pellevé stands out as a safe, effective, non-surgical skin tightening treatment. Several radiofrequency devices have been developed in recent years, but we find that Pellevé delivers the most consistent stream of energy to the skin. This FDA-cleared device can efficiently treat mild to moderate wrinkles and loose tissue that may contribute to jowls at some point. The way that radiofrequency works in the skin is by heating tissue to the right degree at which the body perceives injury. In response, collagen proliferation kicks into high gear for a period of several weeks. This increase remodels the collagen strands that have become loose and weak, resulting in firmer, smoother, more resilient skin. A single treatment can stimulate months of collagen remodeling. However, the provider may suggest multiple treatments to address more significant signs of aging.
Pellevé can address a number of concerns simultaneously. These include:
- Crow’s feet
- Fine to moderate wrinkles
- Loose tissue on the neck
- Loose facial skin and jowls
- Chest wrinkling
- Undereye bags
- Horizontal lines on the forehead
What Makes Pellevé Different?
Some radiofrequency treatments are associated with discomfort and require the use of local anesthetic in the form of numbing cream. Pellevé does not have this requirement. Patients generally describe the warming sensation as comfortable and easily tolerable. After treatment, the skin may appear slightly pink or red. This side effect usually resolves in a matter of a few hours. It is possible to apply makeup right after the procedure and return to normal activities feeling comfortable and enthusiastic about the results that are to come.
