Pelleve Q & A

Arthritis & Osteoporosis Clinic

What is the Pellevé treatment?

As you age, your skin starts to naturally lose collagen and elastin, which are responsible for the firmness, elasticity, and tone of your skin. As a result, your skin begins to droop or sag, and fine lines and wrinkles start to appear.

Pellevé works to halt or reverse that process by stimulating new collagen and elastin production. Here’s how it works:

  • Pellevé sends warm radiofrequency pulses beneath your skin
  • These pulses trigger your body’s natural healing response
  • Your body’s healing response stimulates collagen production

As your body produces collagen, the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles diminishes, and your skin will look and feel tight and youthful.

Which areas does Pellevé treat?

Pellevé treats the skin around your face and neck, and successfully addresses the following:

  • Wrinkles around your mouth
  • Forehead lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Loose skin around your eyes
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Lines between your eyebrows

How many Pellevé treatments do I need?

The number of treatments you need depends on the area you want to target. Typically, 3-5 treatments about four weeks apart deliver the best results. By spacing the treatments out, your body produces an optimal amount of collagen for visible results.

Each treatment is 30-60 minutes long, depending on the areas you want treated.

When will I see results with Pellevé?

Pellevé treatments are progressive, as are the results. After the initial treatment, your skin starts its rebuilding process by producing new collagen. Most patients see results after 30 days, with more dramatic results after 90 days.

Does Pellevé treat cellulite?

Yes! By using a combination of radiofrequency and massage, Pellevé treatments temporarily reduce the appearance of cellulite by heating the tissue under your skin. The heated massage allows your body’s fluids to move more freely, which, in turn, stimulates your lymphatic system to remove the fluids.

Are Pellevé treatments safe?

Because Pellevé is noninvasive, the treatments are considered very safe, and there’s no downtime, meaning you can resume your daily activities immediately after each session.

The radiofrequency waves target the tissue below your skin without affecting the surface area. However, the heat used during the treatment may cause some temporary redness, which resolves itself quickly.
