As we age, collagen production slows down causing our skin to lose laxity and firmness. As a result, wrinkles and fine lines form leaving you with smile lines, crow’s feet, and other bothersome creases, impacting our confidence and comfort in our own skin.
With Pellevé/Thermasure, you can reduce visible signs of aging and rejuvenate your skin without undergoing an invasive medical procedure. Pellevé is an FDA-approved radio-frequency skin tightening treatment used to treat lines and wrinkles non-surgically. Thermasure is the newest form of Pellevé that we are pleased to offer.
HOW IT WORKS
Your skin naturally produces collagen; responsible for supplying your skin with strength, firmness, and elasticity. Pellevé/Thermasure RF skin tightening stimulates new collagen growth, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, which in turn gives you a more youthful appearance naturally. It also tightens elastin fibers, which enables your skin to naturally bounce back after stretching. As there is no recovery time required after a Pellevé treatment, this skin tightening method is quick, easy, and produces results that last up to six months.
Pellevé stimulates the production of new collagen, leaving your skin smooth and soft. Not only will you see a visible difference, but you will also be able to feel it after just one treatment. This method is flexible and can be used to treat your body, full face, and trouble areas for:
- Fine lines
- Crow’s feet
- Smile lines
- Eyelid lines
The Pellevé treatment gently massages the skin to encourage the growth of new collagen. As a result, your skin is left brighter, softer, and smoother with a radiant and youthful glow. Because the treatment does not require needles, patients can continue with their day immediately after having the procedure done. The procedure can also be performed quickly, allowing those with hectic lives and work schedules to fit in an appointment easily. The tight, firm results produced after Pellevé typically lasts up to six months at a time.
HOW DOES THE PELLEVÉ TREATMENT WORK?
As Pellevé uses a handpiece that gradually releases radiofrequency energy for skin tightening, high-quality results are delivered with minimal discomfort and zero downtime. While the treatment requires two steps, the entire procedure typically takes 45 minutes or less to complete, depending on which areas you want to have treated.
The first step of Pellevé is to cover treatment areas with a protective gel. The gel protects the top layer of skin―the epidermis―from the heat of the treatment. Once the gel is in place, the device is used on the skin and moved gently across treatment areas. If you are having your entire body treated, the handpiece is glided over each line and wrinkle, with special attention given to the thighs and buttocks. If the procedure is solely intended to treat your face, the heated massage is moved gently over your forehead, around your eyes, then around your mouth and chin.
Because the procedure uses a handpiece instead of needles, the results are instantaneous. There is no damage to the top layer of skin as the heat from the device targets deeply underneath your skin to stimulate collagen production and tighten elastin fibers (rubber bands in the skin).
The newly produced collagen improves both the strength and appearance of your skin. With improved firmness and elasticity, your skin will look younger and healthier without age lines. Because Pellevé stimulates a natural process rather than injecting harmful chemicals into your skin, it is a quick, safe, and effective way to tighten your skin.
Pellevé can deliver much faster results when combined with the Hydrafacial, as the skin will be more hydrated overall. Enjoy even more added benefits by adding stem cell serum to your skin care regimen to increase collagen repair while also giving your skin a smooth and healthier appearance.
