Pelleve Skin Rejuvenation and Tightening Q & A

What is Pellevé?

Skin loses collagen throughout the aging process, leading to a less supple or smooth appearance as well as fine lines. Pellevé is a gentle skin rejuvenating system using radiofrequency technology to gently warm your skin deep below the surface. Over time, this stimulates collagen production in your face. This means that for several months after your treatment, your body will continue to create more collagen.

What happens during a Pellevé treatment?

People have compared the sensation of Pellevé treatment to a hot stone massage. Because of the warmth it stimulates, you might notice slight redness in the treatment area afterward. This will quickly resolve on its own.

Total treatment time varies depending on how much of your face you’d like treated. An entire facial treatment typically takes 30-45 minutes. If you’d like only specific trouble areas addressed, such as smile lines, crow’s feet, or forehead creases, it may take as little as 15-30 minutes.

Pelleve is also an excellent treatment directly under the eyes – one of the only therapies that address this area.

How many Pellevé sessions will I need?

Most people benefit from a series of Pellevé sessions. Dr. Beckerman tailors the specifics of your treatment based on your personal needs and preferences. Very often, 3-6 treatments spaced roughly four weeks apart are ideal for stimulating the collagen rebuilding process.

Is Pellevé safe?

Pellevé is a gentle and safe therapy. Unlike invasive options like surgical facelifts, no incisions or anesthetics are involved, and you can go back to your daily activities immediately after your treatment. You can even wear makeup right away if you want. In fact, it’s an excellent treatment just prior to an event as your face takes on a smooth glow and fine lines are less visible.

Am I a good candidate for Pellevé treatment?

Pellevé works well for everyone, regardless of gender or skin type. Unlike many other skin treatments, it’s even safe to use on tanned skin, so you can receive treatment in any season — even if you’ve skipped sunscreen a few too many times.

Results from Pellevé appear gradually and last for months. In an FDA clinical trial, over 87% of participants showed continued improvements six months after treatment. To begin reaping similar benefits, call Beckerman Women’s Health now.
