Pelleve for Non-Surgical Skin Tightening

Pelleve® is an innovative skin tightening treatment. By gradually applying heat, it slowly reduces the appearance of wrinkles and stimulates increased collagen production within your skin. With the help of radiofrequency energy, Pelleve® produces the precise amount of heat that is needed to stimulate collagen.

How Pelleve® Tightens Skin

Pelleve® is unique among other non-surgical procedures in that it treats your skin with consistent, smooth radiofrequency energy. Several similar treatments use RF energy, but they don’t deliver a consistent stream of energy into your skin. Pelleve® has been approved by the FDA to treat mild to moderate wrinkles.

New collagen can significantly improve the appearance of your skin. When collagen is new, it’s firmer and tighter than your existing collagen. You can compare collagen to clothes. Over time, it loses its firmness and elasticity. The heat produced by Pelleve® tightens existing collagen fibers and convinces your body to produce new collagen.

Over time, these benefits lead to firmer, smoother skin, and you can completely avoid invasive surgery. Most patients get decent results from a single treatment, but for maximum results, you may want to consider additional treatments. Dr. Adams can help you learn how many treatments you may need during your first appointment.

What Can Be Treated?

Pelleve® is especially effective against crow’s feet around the eyes, and it can also handle fine to moderate facial wrinkles. Since the treatment uses consistent radiofrequency energy, it can treat issues such as neck laxity, chest wrinkling, facial looseness and jowl sagging.

What to Expect

Before undergoing this procedure, you should know what to expect. One major benefit of choosing Pelleve® is the lack of downtime. In fact, you can go right back to your daily routine as soon as your treatment is finished. This treatment is

Radiofrequency doesn’t discriminate against any skin colors, which is why it works well for all skin types. This is a safe, gentle and comfortable option for those who want to experience noticeable skin tightening but do not want or cannot undergo surgery.

What Makes Pelleve® Different?

Pelleve® is a treatment that keeps on giving because it continues to improve your skin over a period of several months. The main purpose of the treatment is to stimulate collagen production, and as your body creates new collagen, the appearance of your skin continues to improve. Clients may notice results immediately, but the full effects of the procedure can take several months to appear. New collagen will make your skin firm, smooth and youthful, and if you want to maintain the results from this procedure, you’ll likely need to consider additional treatments.

Pelleve® is backed up by proven technology, and it’s one of the best options available for non-surgical skin tightening. Adams Dermatology provides the Columbia area with this treatment among our many other dermatological and aesthetic services, each personalized for every patient. Contact us today to learn more about non-invasive skin tightening with Pelleve®.
