Releve with Pelleve
- Posted on: Aug 15 2016
If nothing makes you feel more like twirling and dancing on your toes than smoother, tighter, more youthful skin, than you need to learn about Pellevé.
Considered a “revolutionary” innovation in the world of skin care, it can treat your facial wrinkles non-surgically, and it’s offered at Aura. Call for your appointment today: (415) 788-3800.
Pellevé is a laser treatment
It precisely heats the deep layers of the skin using advanced radiofrequency technology that doesn’t damage the top layer. In fact, patients describe the procedure as “pleasant” and even “comfortable,” and it can provide immediate, long lasting results.
Heat is the secret
The heat from Pelleve causes the collagen in skin to contract and tighten, stimulating production of new collagen. (Collagen is a part of the skin’s connective tissue that helps it to be firm and supple). Results can be seen and felt, sometimes immediately after only one treatment, including:
- Improved skin quality
- Increased firmness
- Increased tightness
Pellevé can be used on the face to improve everything from sagging skin under the chin and upper eyelids to wrinkles around the mouth, eyes and on the forehead. And more.
Pelleve isn’t like other similar laser skin tightening treatments. Here’s why
The process is often compared to other radio frequency treatments, such as Thermage, but it delivers skin-improving heat in a different way. Pellevé uses a smooth, consistent RF delivery process, rather than pulsed.
You can have a full-face Pelleve treatment in 45-60 minutes, without any kind of anesthesia or skin “cooling” methods needed.
- During treatment, you will only experience a deep warming sensation as the hand piece touches the treatment areas.
- After treatments, you can go back to work or have lunch with friends with no evidence that you’ve had a procedure – except glowing skin.
Rarely, some patients will experience some mild redness and swelling, which should dissipate in a couple of hours, or by the next day. But no after-care is required. We do recommend that you always wear sunscreen, but you don’t need to stay out of the sun after Pelleve, as you do with many other skin treatments.
