Pellevé? - Remove Wrinkles in One Session without Surgeries
Pellevé™ is a revolutionary non-surgical procedure to safely treat facial wrinkles with virtually no pain and little downtime. Dr. Thomas E. Young, MD, and his staff helped us answer a few questions about the Pellevé™ skin tightening procedure. We encourage you to view before and after pictures of Dr. Young's patients to compare how you might look after your procedure.
Here are a few questions people want to know about Pellevé™ :
How does Pelleve work?
Using advanced radiowave technology, the Pellevé™ system precisely heats the deep layers of the skin without damaging the epidermis, or top layer. The heat causes the collagen in the skin to contract and tighten. After treatment, the skin begins to produce new collagen, which improves skin firmness.
How is Pelleve different from other skin tightening procedures that remove skin wrinkles?
The result is a naturally refreshed appearance. Unlike other skin tightening systems, Pellevé™ doesn’t require anesthesia or skin cooling. Patients can expect to feel a deep warming sensation each time the handpiece touches the area being treated. Because the skin is not numb, the patient can describe the depth of the feeling to the doctor, which helps to ensure the best possible results.
What is the recovery time after a Pelleve procedure?
They can also return to home or work immediately. Side effects may include mild discomfort during the procedure within the treatment area. Mild swelling and redness may also occur and typically go away within 2 to 24 hours after treatment. Pellevé™ can be used to treat the skin on the face, including the eye area. Many people start to see results after just one treatment, with lasting improvement in skin tightness and tone for up to six months. Because a full facial treatment takes only about an hour with little, if any, recovery time, Pellevé™ fits easily into busy schedules.
For the best results, it’s important to choose a doctor who is experienced in administering Pellevé™. Young Medical Spa® has three locations in Pennsylvania - Center Valley (Lehigh Valley), Lansdale, and King of Prussia (Mainline). Their spa-like atmosphere is relaxing, their services personal, and their staff is caring.
