Never before has it been possible to address some of the most stubborn signs of aging without the need for surgery, but today we have a wealth of non-surgical skin tightening procedures intended to rejuvenate, repair, and revitalize. The FDA-approved Pellevé System is a state-of-the-art example of what can be achieved with little or no downtime and with typically excellent results. Designed to address fine lines, spider veins, and more, Pellevé can help patients looking for a mild to moderate treatment for these common concerns. Talk to our team today to schedule a consultation and find out if this technique is right for you.
What Is Pellevé?
The Pellevé System is a noninvasive cosmetic treatment that uses radiofrequency energy to rejuvenate the skin. In addition to requiring no needles or incisions, Pellevé offers a comfortable and quick way to soften fine lines like crow’s feet, smooth away spider veins, and stimulate collagen production.
How Does Pellevé Work?
Pellevé works in a unique way. A handheld wand emits radiofrequency (RF) energy into the targeted area, going deep into the skin. The RF energy will heat up the dermis (lower layer of the skin), leading to increased collagen production while limiting damage to surrounding tissues. This process tightens the treated area, smoothing fine lines and disrupting spider veins. Many patients can see signs of improvement directly after their first session with more comprehensive enhancement noticeable over time.
What Are the Pros and Cons of Pellevé?
Pellevé offers numerous benefits, including:
- Little to no downtime
- Virtually painless
- Improved appearance of facial spider veins
- Reduced fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes
- Gradual, natural-looking results
While Pellevé can achieve remarkable results, it’s not appropriate for everyone or for all needs. Pellevé is recommended for mild to moderate concerns, and more significant creases may indicate that another treatment could provide better results. During your initial consultation, Dr. Neal Goldberg, our board-certified plastic surgeon, will discuss your desired outcome, evaluate your characteristics, and develop a customized treatment plan.
How Long Is Recovery From Pellevé?
One of the many advantages of Pellevé is the quick recovery. Most patients can return to normal activity immediately after treatment. No anesthesia is typically required, although we will adjust our approach to suit your individual needs. Some minor swelling, redness, and tenderness may occur, but these effects should fade quickly. We recommend one treatment every month for three months for the optimal outcome, unless otherwise stated by our medical team.
How Much Does Pellevé Cost?
The price of Pellevé will depend on the size of the treatment area and can range from about $500 to $1,500. To help you remain well-informed, we will provide a detailed overview of the procedure, including the cost of your treatment, at the initial consultation. Many individuals like that Pellevé offers a more affordable approach to cosmetic enhancement, and we accept a wide range of payment options and cosmetic financing as an added convenience to you.
