The PelleFirm® System provides a non-invasive, pain free RF treatment for the body, resulting in smoother skin and temporary improvement in the appearance of cellulite. PelleFirm is powered by the Pellevé® S5 RF Generator, which also powers the Pellevé Wrinkle Reduction handpieces for facial skin tightening.
This innovative system is comprised of 2 new, large diameter handpieces sized for the body that elevate tissue temperature up to 45 degrees Celsius, coupled with mechanical massage heads for treatment of areas with cellulite. PelleFirm can address almost any area of the body and is ideal for problem zones including the abdomen, arms, buttocks and thighs and can be used on all skin types. Like Pellevé, a PelleFirm RF Body Treatment system is effective, delivering visible results with no pain and no downtime.
The PelleFirm System is CE Marked for body skin tightening and cellulite reduction. In addition, it also has received FDA 510(K) clearance for tissue heating and the temporary reduction in the appearance of cellulite.
How Does PelleFirm Work?
Specialized handpieces work in combination with massage heads to deliver radiowaves into the skin’s surface. The heated massage facilitates movement of fluids which are then naturally evacuated by the body’s lymphatic system. This innovative system is designed to help you look your best while temporarily improving the appearance of cellulite.
What can you expect?
PelleFirm is a comfortable, safe procedure that doesn’t have any downtime. Patients have reported that it feels similar to a relaxing hot stone massage. After the procedure you might have slight redness, which is caused by your skin’s elevated temperatures during treatment and will subside soon afterwards. You will be able to return to your normal day-to-day activities immediately after the procedure.
How many treatments are needed?
The process of cellulite reduction takes time. A series of bi-weekly treatments are recommended for visible results, with touch-ups every 6 months thereafter.
