The Science Behind Pellevé®
Pellevé precisely delivers energy to the dermal tissue using advanced radiofrequency technology to induce collagen contraction without damaging the epidermis. The result is skin tightening via soft tissue coagulation.
Pellevé’s unique radiofrequency technology emits energy in the form of electromagnetic waves, which creates a heated treatment zone. Increased resistance causes heat buildup at the subdermal junction. Heat induces collagen denaturation and collagen contraction. Protein stimulation causes new collagen formation and production in the dermis which also results in epidermal tightening.
The Pellevé System delivers continuous radiofrequency energy which enables the clinician to choose how much energy to deliver and in what areas. By using a combination of the different sizes of Pellevé handpieces that are available each patient’s specific areas of concern can be addressed, resulting in patients receiving just the right amount of energy. The GlideSafe handpieces feature an innovative sensor designed to stop energy flow when the device senses loss of contact with skin, further enhancing the safety.
Non invasive, non ablative office treatment
Patients today are seeking affordable, non invasive alternatives to ablative and surgical procedures. The Pellevé System fills that void.
Minimal side effects
A Pellevé treatment is virtually pain free and no anesthetic is used for the treatment. The patient may experience some transient erythema or edema, which is typically gone in a few hours.
You can feel the Pellevé difference. The Pellevé treatment is virtually painless and generally quite pleasurable, unlike many other energy based procedures. It is a very comfortable skin tightening treatment that takes less than an hour. You can go back to work and resume your normal routine right away, and no one will know you have had anything done. You will appear more radiant!
