Put a fresh face forward
Pellevé precisely heats the deep layers of your skin using advanced radiofrequency energy without damaging the epidermis, or top layer. The heat causes the existing collagen in your skin to contract and tighten*. Also after the treatment, your skin will start to produce new collagen. The result is an improvement in skin tightness and wrinkles you can see and feel.
Pellevé can be used to treat the skin on the face, including:
• Nasolabial folds
• Wrinkles around the mouth
• Lines or folds between the eyebrows • Lines on the forehead
• Loose skin above or below the eye
• Crow’s feet
As we age, collagen production slows down causing our skin to lose laxity and firmness. As a result, wrinkles and fine lines form leaving you with smile lines, crow’s feet, and other bothersome creases. Pellevé is a non-invasive radiofrequency solution to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles without needles or surgery.
Pellevé is a safe and effective option for a no downtime procedure that gives you a refreshed youthful appearance. A series of treatments is recommended to boost the collagen rebuilding process.
What does Pellevé do to reduce wrinkles?
During treatment, the GlideSafe® handpiece gradually delivers radiofrequency energy through the epidermis into the dermis. Heating of the dermal layer initiates your body’s natural response to protect, heal, and grow NEW collagen
• 1 – 3 days after your procedure, the area treated will have a “post-treatment glow”
• 4 – 15 days after treatment, your body’s natural reaction to heal comes into play
as fibroblasts become present, and the collagen rebuilding process begins
• 15+ days post-treatment collagen synthesis and formal remodeling occurs.
The collagen regrowth process will continue days, weeks, even months after treatment. Thus, it is recommended to receive at least 3-5 treatments about 4 weeks apart, so you are re-boosting the collagen building process and getting optimal results.
What to Expect
The Pellevé treatment is delivered using GlideSafe® handpieces that have been developed to safely deliver radiofrequency energy into delicate areas, where your skin has become thinner during the natural aging process. This includes (but is not limited to) the most delicate skin around your eyes. Pellevé has been known to give you an instant glow resulting in a smoother appearance and younger-looking skin.
Pellevé is a comfortable, safe procedure that doesn’t have any downtime. Patients have reported that it feels similar to a relaxing hot stone massage. You might have slight redness after the procedure which is caused by your skin’s elevated temperatures during the treatment, and will subside soon afterwards. You will be able to return to your normal day-to-day activities immediately after your treatment.
Which areas can I have treated with Pelleve?
Pelleve is designed to give your face the glow you used to have when you were younger. You can get treatments to smooth out eyelid wrinkles and crow’s feet. It’s also beneficial for smoothing wrinkles around your mouth and lips. If need be, you can request a full-face treatment, just to cover all areas that you might be concerned about.
When will I see results?
Within a few days of your first session, you notice a new glow. Your body’s natural healing process starts around 4-5 days after treatment, allowing collagen to begin forming. Roughly two weeks after your visit, collagen formation and skin remodeling occur. This process happens for up to 90 days after each treatment, allowing you to continue to have smoother, more youthful skin with every passing day.
How many sessions will I need?
Usually, people have the best results with Pelleve by getting 3-5 treatments. You need to schedule each one about four weeks apart. You can always come in for more until you see the results you want. During your consultation, your skin care expert lets you know about how many visits you should expect for your specific skin condition.
Are Pelleve treatments painful?
Most men and women describe the experience similar to having a hot stone massage. While you might feel some discomfort in sensitive areas, you shouldn’t be in any kind of pain. If you are uncomfortable during your treatment, talk with your practitioner. You might be a candidate for a lidocaine cream that can numb the area being treated.
How does it work?
The Pellevé system uses radiofrequency technology to gently warm the skin deep beneath the surface, which over time, stimulates the body’s natural production of new collagen. 30, 60, 90 days after treatment your body is still working to naturally grow new collagen. Because Pellevé triggers your body’s natural reaction to rebuild collagen weeks after the procedure, a series of treatments will give you optimal results!

You might have slight redness after the procedure which is caused by your skin’s elevated temperatures during the treatment, and will subside soon after the procedure. You will be able to return to your normal day-to-day activities immediately afterwards.
How long does the treatment take?
Treating the entire face takes anywhere from 45–60 min. If you would like a specific area treated (e.g., the delicate areas around your eyes, forehead, or smile lines) your procedure could be completed in as little as 30 minutes! Because the collagen rebuilding process continues to work days, weeks, even months after your treatment, a series of treatments are required for the best results.
Is Pelleve right for me?
Pellevé is ideal for men and women with all skin phototypes. Unlike most laser treatments, Pellevé is gentle on the skin and is safe to use all year round, regardless of tan skin.
Please discuss with your provider to determine if Pellevé is right for you.
