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, non-ablative and noninvasive procedure without the use of needles or surgery. Pellevé is a comfortable and pleasurable treatment that involves no downtime, so you can return to normal activities without getting cornered and questioned about what you got ‘done’.
Pellevé 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 downtime.
Pellevé can be combined with other treatments like Botox, Restylane, Radiesse, and Juvederm for unparalleled results and is an amazing maintenance treatment following Thermage CPT. If you would like to purchase multiple treatments, ask our patient coordinators about our series discounts.
Q: How is Pellevé different from other skin tightening treatments?
A: Medical studies have proven Pellevé to provide safe and effective skin tightening. Unlike other systems, no anesthesia or skin cooling is needed during your Pellevé procedure, so there are minimal side effects and discomfort so you can return to work and normal activities immediately following the treatment.
Q: What should I expect during the treatment?
A: Each time the Pellevé hand piece touches the area being treated, you will feel a deep warming sensation that’s been described as a warm stone massage. Since no sedative is required, you’ll be able to describe the depth of the feeling to your medical provider, which will help to ensure the best possible results.
Q: How long does a Pellevé treatment take?
A: Your Pellevé procedure will typically take about 60 minutes for a full facial treatment. Treatment times vary for each area. Since Pellevé doesn’t require anesthesia, numbing or downtime, it fits easily into your busy schedule.
Q: What should I expect after my treatment?
A: You should expect to be able to return to your daily activities with no downtime at all. You can apply makeup immediately after the procedure and there is no restriction from being in the sun. Some patients experience mild swelling and redness which typically go away within 2 to 24 hours.
