Anti Aging Benefits of Pelleve Skin Tightening Treatments

Unlike other popular skin tightening treatments such as Thermage and Titan, the Pelleve procedure uses a very small treatment tip so it can reach smaller parts of the face, including the area under the jawline, the tissues around the cheekbones, and loose skin under the ears. It can also treat loose and sagging skin around the eyes.

Some of the top anti aging benefits of Pelleve skin tightening treatments include:

  • Tighter and firmer skin after the first treatment
  • Little to no pain associated with the treatment
  • No need for a topical anesthetic
  • Continued improvement for up to six months after the treatment
  • Complications are rare
  • Redness or tingling resolves itself within two days of treatment
  • Completely non-invasive
  • No special lotions, creams or topical agents required
  • Helps reduce or eliminate fine lines and wrinkles
  • FDA approved for softening wrinkles on the face, neck and hands

How Pelleve Skin Tightening Treatments Work

The Pelleve skin tightening device emits radio frequency energy deep into the dermis. The medical professional administering the treatment may apply a conductive gel to the skin so that the radiofrequency waves can travel deep into the dermis. The heat from the device triggers collagen production because the body senses an injury or burn. Rapid collagen production leads to firmer, more contoured skin and you’ll notice that your skin appears much smoother, toned and youthful-looking for several weeks and months after the first treatment.

Most people need to undergo a series of at least three treatments in order to see significant results, but you can expect to see some results immediately after the first treatment. These can be spaced about four weeks apart so that collagen can reform and settle before the next treatment.

Most treatments last for approximately 45 minutes and feel like a heated, deep tissue massage. The skin may feel very hot or warm when the device is applied to the skin, but the discomfort typically subsides within a few hours after the treatment. Results can last up to a year to a year and a half, depending on the condition of the skin and area being treated.
