What is Pelleve?
Pelleve is an FDA-approved wrinkle reduction system that can eliminate “crow’s feet” (or periorbital rhytids) and other wrinkles caused by aging, around your eye area for certain skin types. Pelleve can address wrinkling that causes frown lines above the brow, lipstick lines on the top lip—even the neck and jowls—thus restoring your appearance to that of a more youthful one. Pelleve is a new non-invasive innovation to achieve smoother, tighter skin and treat facial wrinkles without surgery.
Dr. Amiya Prasad Discusses Pelleve and Other Treatments Can Work Best Together for Improving Skin Quality
How Does Pelleve Work?
A protective gel is placed on the face before the treatment is administered.
The heat causes the collagen in your skin to contract and tighten. With Pelleve, a steady flow of heat is delivered into the skin, right where the skin and fat layers meet, stimulating the growth of new collagen.
After the treatment, your skin will eventually start to produce new collagen. The result is an improvement in skin quality, firmness and tightness you can see and feel.
Pelleve can be used to rejuvenate the entire face and neck. It typically takes about 45 minutes to an hour for a full Pelleve facial treatment. After the treatment, mild swelling and redness may occur, but this usually disappears after a few hours.
Results will depend on the patient. Some see results after one treatment, while others need 2-3 treatments before seeing a difference.
Benefits of Pelleve
- Pelleve is not a laser—it is a radio-frequency device. Therefore, it can precisely heat the deep layers of your skin without damaging the top layer of your skin, or the epidermis.
- Pelleve is painless and therefore does not require the administration of anesthesia or skin cooling.
- Pelleve requires virtually no recovery time. Patients can therefore return back to the their busy schedules after treatment.
