Pelleve is a non-invasive procedure that can provide a solution for skin laxity and wrinkles. At OcuSight Eye Care Center, we offer Pelleve as an effective option for our patients seeking a non-surgical alternative to improve the appearance of their skin.

What is Pelleve?

Pelleve is a non-invasive treatment that can reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, leaving your skin looking more youthful. With this innovative treatment, you can obtain smoother and firmer skin without undergoing surgery or experiencing any downtime.

The Pelleve technique utilizes heat to tighten and lift contour and shape the face and neck. This treatment is an ideal solution to sagging skin, wrinkles, and lines. 

Pelleve utilizes radiofrequency energy to heat up the deeper layers of the skin without disrupting the surface layers. This heat triggers the production of collagen, which results in firmer and more youthful-looking skin. 

Additionally, existing collagen bundles contract during the process, which lifts and tightens the skin. Pelleve treatment can address skin laxity concerns on the face, neck, and décolleté.

Pelleve works synergistically with facial fillers and can help boost and contour treated areas.

Who is a Candidate for Pelleve?

Good candidates for Pelleve include those who desire a non-invasive method to enhance their facial appearance without the need for surgery. Pelleve is FDA-cleared for full face and neck treatment, making it an excellent option for individuals seeking a comprehensive approach to address wrinkles and fine lines in these areas.

Pelleve is an excellent option for individuals with mild to moderate skin laxity. It is also an effective option for those who have previously undergone other cosmetic procedures and are seeking additional treatment to improve their skin’s texture and tone. 

Pelleve is a safe treatment, but certain medical conditions or skin sensitivities may preclude some individuals from being candidates for the procedure. If you are interested in Pelleve, schedule a consultation at OcuSight Eye Care Center to learn more about this treatment and determine if you may be a good candidate.

What Happens During Pelleve Treatment?

During a Pelleve treatment, your eye doctor will use a specialized device to deliver radiofrequency energy to the treatment area. The energy penetrates the skin’s surface layers, heating the deeper layers where collagen is produced. 

The heat causes the existing collagen fibers to contract, which results in a tightening effect on the skin. It stimulates the production of new collagen, which can improve skin texture and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

Pelleve is a non-invasive and pain-free procedure that does not require any anesthesia or incisions. Patients report feeling a warming sensation during the treatment, but it is typically well-tolerated.

The duration of the treatment ranges from fifteen to forty-five minutes, depending on the area of concern. The practitioner will adjust the settings of the device based on the individual’s skin type, concerns, and treatment goals.

Following the treatment, you will likely be able to resume your typical daily activities immediately. There is no downtime required, and you can return to work or other activities without restrictions.

How Long Do the Results of Pelleve Last?

Most people notice a change in their skin immediately after Pelleve treatment. It’s likely that your skin will feel firmer and smoother as the texture and tone improve over the course of the following six months. 

The longevity of the results can vary depending on several factors, such as age, skin type, and lifestyle habits. Typically, the results of Pelleve can last up to six months to a year or more, depending on the individual’s skin and the extent of the treatment. 

However, maintenance treatments can help prolong the results, and many people opt for periodic treatments to maintain their results.
