Pelleve Skin Tightening Vancouver WA
What is Pellevé® Skin Tightening?
Pellevé® is a non-surgical wrinkle reduction treatment that uses radio frequency energy to contract the collagen in your skin while stimulating the production of new collagen. Collagen is important for a youthful appearance because it gives your skin strength and structure. As you get older, the amount of collagen in your skin decreases, and your skin starts to sag and develop wrinkles. Pellevé® requires no downtime, and your skin continues to improve for months after the treatment.
Benefits of Pellevé® Skin Tightening
Pellevé® skin tightening has many advantages over similar anti-aging treatments. The machine that is used to remove wrinkles does not generate any direct heat. You only feel the effects of the radiofrequency (RF) energy within your skin rather than on the surface. The system is gentle enough for even the most sensitive parts of your face, such as the tightening of the skin around your eyes. Because the treatment contracts existing collagen, Pellevé® RF therapy provides you with immediate and long-lasting results, and there are gradual improvements as your body produces new collagen.
Pellevé® vs. Thermage®
Pellevé® and Thermage® are radio frequency machines that are used for wrinkle reduction by way of collagen production. Both systems make your skin tight so you look younger. The advantage of an RF facial with Pellevé® is that you see better results in just three to five sessions that are scheduled at one-month intervals.
Pellevé® Skin Tightening Procedure
The radiofrequency energy from the Pellevé® machine gently warms the subdermal layer between the skin and fat. We apply a gel to your skin to help deliver the warming energy. The handpiece of the Pellevé® RF machine is placed against your skin with a gentle touch. No pressure or massaging is needed for the treatment to work. Collagen fibers contract to give an immediate tightening effect that you can see right away. The RF energy also triggers the production of new collagen to further tighten your skin.
What Can Be Treated with Pellevé® Skin Tightening?
We treat the entire face and neck with the Pellevé® system. It is also good for tightening the skin on your chest. Pellevé® eye treatments help with puffiness and crow’s feet. For a more dramatic effect, we recommend using Pellevé® for your eyes and forehead. Address the earliest signs of aging by treating your jowls and neck with Pellevé®. Other signs of aging that can be reduced include smile lines and sagging in the mid-face region.
Recovery and Results of Pellevé® Skin Tightening
After your Pellevé® treatment, the skin may be slightly pink, and you may have some minor swelling for two to three hours. Pellevé® recovery requires no downtime. You can wear makeup and use your normal skincare products immediately after the treatment. We recommend that you use high-quality sunscreen while outdoors.
You can see the results of Pellevé® treatments after one session. Full results take up to six months and may last for several years.
Risks and Side Effects of Pellevé® Skin Tightening
Pellevé® carries no known risks, and it is safe for most skin types. Some of the more common side effects of Pellevé® skin tightening are sensitivity, redness, and swelling.
