    How is Pellevé different from other skin tightening treatments?

    Pellevé has been proven to provide safe and effective skin tightening* in medical studies. Because Pellevé is a non-invasive procedure, meaning no surgery is required, there are minimal side effects and discomfort. Unlike other systems, no anesthesia or skin cooling is needed during your Pellevé procedure, so you can return to home or work immediately following treatment.

    What should I expect during the procedure?

    You will feel a deep warming sensation each time the Pellevé hand piece touches the area being treated. Because no anesthetic is required, you’ll be able to describe the depth of the heat to your doctor, which will help to ensure the best possible results.

    How long does a Pellevé procedure take?

    Your Pellevé procedure will typically take about 45 to 60 minutes for a full facial treatment. Because Pellevé doesn’t require anesthesia or downtime, it fits easily into your busy schedule.

    What should I expect afterwards?

    You should expect to be able to return to your daily activities with no downtime at all. Unlike lasers, there is no restriction from being in the sun and you can also apply makeup immediately after the procedure. Some patients experience mild swelling and redness which typically goes away within 2 to 24 hours.

    Pellevé is indicated for the non-ablative treatment of mild to moderate facial wrinkles for all skin colors. Possible side effects of Pellevé are usually treatment-site related and include mild discomfort during the procedure within the treatment area. Mild swelling (edema) and redness (erythema) may occur during or after a Pellevé skin treatment.
