Radio Frequency Pelleve Skin Tightening

If you are looking for non-invasive ways to tighten your skin and prevent unwanted wrinkles, then radiofrequency skin tightening may be your answer. Most non-invasive skin tightening procedures treat areas with small wrinkles and areas where the skin is lax such as around the eyes, around the mouth, forehead and jawline.

At Facial Artistry, we offer Pellevé. It is a treatment that uses radiofrequency to tighten the skin and reduces noticeable wrinkles. Pellevé precisely heats the deep layers of your skin using advanced radiofrequency technology without damaging the epidermis, or top layer. The heat causes the collagen in your skin to contract and tighten. After the treatment the skin will start to produce new collagen. The result is an improvement in skin quality, firmness and tightness you can see and feel.

Pellevé can be used to treat the skin on the face including:

  • Sagging skin under the chin
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Wrinkles around the mouth
  • Lines or folds between the eyebrows
  • Lines on the forehead
  • Excess skin on the upper eyelid
  • Crow’s feet

Many people start to see results immediately after just one Pelleve treatment. A treatment plan will be tailored to suit your individual needs and the number of treatments will be discussed at your initial consultation.

How is Pellevé different from other skin tightening treatments?

Pellevé has been proven to provide safe and effective skin tightening in medical studies. Pellevé is a non-invasive procedure, meaning no surgery is required, there are minimal side effects and discomfort. It has major a major advantage over other systems such as Thermage, in that it causes virtually no discomfort and therefore no anesthesia or skin cooling is needed during your Pellevé procedure, so you can return to home or work immediately following treatment.

What should I expect during the procedure?

You will feel a deep warming sensation each time the Pellevé handpiece touches the area being treated. No anesthetic is required, so you’ll be able to describe the depth of the feeling while you are having the treatment. This helps ensure the best possible results.

How long does a Pellevé treatment take?

Your Pellevé procedure will typically take about 45 to 60 minutes for a full facial treatment.

What should I expect afterwards?

You should expect to be able to return to your daily activities with no downtime at all. There is no restriction from being in the sun and you can also apply makeup immediately after the procedure. Some patients experience mild swelling and redness which typically goes away within 2 to 24 hours.
