Pelleve


Facial Aesthetic Concepts is excited to introduce the new Pellevé™ Wrinkle Reduction System with GlideSafe™ technology. Pellevé is the latest FDA-cleared procedure for the safe and effective treatment of facial wrinkles and smoother, tighter facial skin. This is a virtually painless, nonablative and noninvasive procedure with no needles or surgery and involves no social downtime.

Pellevé is a comfortable and pleasurable treatment. It precisely delivers energy to the dermal tissue using advanced radiofrequency technology to induce collagen contraction without damaging the epidermis. This produces immediate skin tightening and firming effects for most patients with a noticeable improvement in skin quality and texture.

Typically one to three sessions are recommended for optimal results, depending on the severity of wrinkles and skin laxity. Many patients see lasting improvements of up to 18 months with a single treatment. Pellevé treatments can be used on all skin types and unlike other treatments, it doesn’t require anesthesia or skin cooling. Pellevé does not cause peeling, bruising or swelling, so patients can resume to normal activities right away with NO social downtime.

Pellevé can be combined with other treatments like Botox, Sculptra, Restylane, Radiesse, and Juvederm for unparalleled results and is an amazing maintenance treatment following Thermage CPT.

FAQ:

Q: How does Pellevé differ from other skin tightening procedures?

Q: What should I expect during my Pellevé treatment?
