PelleFirm Body Rejuvenation and Tightening Q & A

What is PelleFirm?

PelleFirm uses radio frequency to heat and massage body tissues, stimulate collagen and reduces the appearance of those lumps and bumps known as cellulite as well as tightening loose skin.

Dr. Beckerman uses a special handpiece to deliver the energy and massage the skin. This process stimulates your body’s lymphatic system to circulate fluids, which are then naturally excreted.

What does a PelleFirm treatment feel like?

During your PelleFirm treatment, you’ll lie comfortably in a relaxed setting. People have compared the sensation to that of a hot stone massage. Each session takes around 30 minutes depending on the size of the treatment area.

PelleFirm is gentle and pain-free. Because it uses heat, you might notice slight redness of your skin after your treatment. This will resolve on its own and you’ll be able to get back to your normal activities without any downtime.

How many PelleFirm treatments will I need?

The number of PelleFirm treatments needed varies. The process of diminishing cellulite takes time, so you’ll probably benefit most from six biweekly treatments followed by touch-ups for maintenance yearly.

What can I expect from a PelleFirm treatment?

PelleFirm produces very natural-looking results that appear gradually. Your skin will look smoother, firmer, and more vibrant.

PelleFirm is not intended for weight loss and cannot correct excessive skin sagging, the type you might experience after substantial weight loss. It’s also important to recognize that cellulite can and will likely return, and everyone has some. PelleFirm can, however, provide tightness and smoothness that can last as long as six months.
