Add Pellevé to your Practice
By the age of thirty your face will begin to develop fine lines and wrinkles, creases in your skin which can be caused by many variables and can be less or more visible based on your genes and how well you take care of your skin. Smoking, heavy exposure to the sun or other sources of UV radiation, or even your favorite sleeping position can cause damage to your facial skin over the years.
Women and men experience a slowdown in the rate of collagen production as they get older. As a result, your skin not only begins to sag, it also loses some of its elasticity. Decreased tightness leads to the formation of wrinkles and fine lines. The bad news is that this is a natural part of aging. The good news is there are several ways to treat these lines effectively and work on preventing further deepening.
- Lasers: unlike a facelift, which consists of a surgical process in which your skin is cut and stretched manually, ablative lasers offer a non-surgical solution that forces the creation of new collagen by damaging the skin in areas where wrinkles occur. As the skin recovers from this trauma, collagen is formed and it helps to fill some of your fine lines and wrinkles. Most of these lasers require five to seven days of downtime, sessions can be painful or result in a burning sensation, and noticeable side effects may include swelling, post-procedure pain and small scars.
- Facial Fillers: injectables are able to treat fine lines on the forehead, between the eyes, crow’s feet and smile lines. Most fillers on the market including the famous ones allow for a temporary relief of the problem with less downtime than a facelift or ablative lasers but the process must be repeated every few months and over time become quite costly.
- Pellevé: a non-invasive procedure which not only treats the specific area without the need of cutting or injecting, it is also performed within an hour and has fast and long lasting results. The side effects are minimal and include mild redness and swelling which usually clear up in less than a day. The procedure is so quick and simple that many people are able to have it done during lunch and return to work in the same day.
Pellevé is a non-invasive and relatively painless procedure with no recovery time. Pellevé’s significant results in the smile lines, forehead, eyes and crow's feet, cheeks and the jaw line have persuaded tens of thousands of patients around the country to prefer this procedure over the alternatives.
The Pellevé device uses radio frequency technology to create heat which encourages the creation of new collagen. The sub dermal junction is heated which leads to tightening of the facial skin. Existing bands of collagen also tighten from the heat, giving your skin a greater sense of elasticity. The treatment is so effective that you actually see results immediately after your first session and more noticeable results within the next few months. Most patients tend to get the most out of Pellevé by scheduling one to three sessions, based on the physician’s evaluation of their current skin condition.
