When Should I Consider Trying Pelleve?

As we age, certain things change about our body. While we might wish our muscles didn’t betray us after doing a day’s worth of yard work, time waits for no man (or woman).

So it is with our skin. As we age, our body naturally begins to slow its production of collagen and elastin, two substances responsible for the tone, firmness, and elasticity of our skin. Because production drops off, our skin begins to sag or droop, and wrinkles and fine lines begin to appear where everything used to be smooth.

If this is the case for you, it may be time for you to consider trying Pellevé, a non-invasive radiofrequency solution to reduce the appearance of those fine lines and wrinkles without any surgery or needles.

Rheumatologist Dr. William Brelsford and our expert team here at Arthritis & Osteoporosis Clinic in Tyler, Texas, are pros in administering Pellevé. Here are the facts about Pellevé, including the treatment process and results you can expect, so you can decide whether it’s time for you to give Pellevé a try.

What is Pellevé?

The Pellevé system makes use of radiofrequency technology to gently warm your skin deep below the surface - the pulses work down through the epidermis to the dermis below it. These radiofrequency pulses trigger your body’s healing response, which in turn stimulates natural production of collagen.

This newly-produced collagen then causes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles to noticeably diminish. Even after the treatment is over, your body continues to produce collagen 30, 60, and 90 days later. 

Because of this, the most effective plan is to undergo a series of Pellevé treatments, each a few weeks apart. Patients usually get the best results with 3 to 5 treatments. 

What kind of results can I expect?

For the first 1-3 days after the procedure, you may have a glow about you as your skin works to begin the healing process. About 4-15 days after treatment, the collagen-rebuilding process kicks into gear. 15+ days after treatment, the collagen regrowth progress continues and can last for months, delivering vibrant, healthy skin that reminds you of your youth.

The radiofrequency pulses are sent into the skin using a GlideSafe® handpiece developed specifically for this purpose. Patients say it feels like a relaxing hot stone massage. The elevated temperature of your skin could result in some redness, but this quickly disappears. 

There are no other side effects, so you can resume your normal daily activities immediately after a treatment.

Pellevé works for both men and women with all types of skin. It’s safe to use on any type of skin, and will give you that youthful, refreshed appearance you’ve been looking for. 

If you are having your entire face treated, each session will take anywhere from 45-60 minutes. If you’re having a smaller, more specific area treated (i.e. the area around your eyes, your forehead, etc.), this will take about 30 minutes.

If you have been looking in the mirror wondering what you can do to slow down the advancing years and gain back your firm, youthful skin, Dr. Brelsford and our expert team in Tyler, Texas, can help you determine the best course of action.
