Pellevé and PelleFirm Radio-Frequencies Q & A

How does Pelleve  work?

Pelleve is an FDA-approved noninvasive treatment that addresses fine lines and wrinkles. Pelleve uses radiofrequency to heat the deep layers of your skin. This prevents any damage to the top layers, but stimulates existing collagen in your skin to tighten and contract. Collagen is a natural compound that gives your skin firmness and resiliency.

Pelleve treatments also encourage your skin to produce new collagen, so you see an improvement in skin tightness and reduction in wrinkles.

What areas can be treated with Pelleve?

Pelleve effectively treats facial areas to reduce wrinkling and improve elasticity. These include:

  • Wrinkles around your mouth
  • Forehead lines
  • Lines between your eyebrows
  • Loose skin around your eyes
  • Crow’s feet

Men and women of all skin tones benefit from Pelleve treatments. Dr. Esla can also use Pelleve to treat tanned skin.

How does PelleFirm change the appearance of cellulite?

Cellulite is dimpled fat that can appear on your abdomen, flanks, thighs, and butt. The radiofrequency energy from the PelleFirm wand deeply heats the fat underneath your skin that causes the cottage cheese appearance of cellulite. It also massages the treated areas to break down the fat and reduce its appearance. PelleFirm enhances circulation and the movement of fluid, so waste from the fat is excreted naturally through your lymphatic system.

Do Pelleve or PelleFirm treatments hurt?

The treatments firm all areas of your face and body with no injections or incisions. Both Pelleve and PelleFirm are noninvasive; the radiofrequency energy naturally penetrates the surface layer of your skin.

Both treatments are comfortable, much like a hot-stone massage, and require no downtime. You may experience slight redness in treated areas due to the elevated temperature reached during a session.

How many treatments of Pelleve or PelleFirm are necessary to get results?

Each treatment lasts less than an hour, and you can go right back to your daily routine afterward; no downtime is necessary. Patients often report seeing an instant glow following a session.

To achieve optimal results, most Pelleve patients need between three and five treatments for wrinkles on their face. You schedule these about four weeks apart. Dr. Esla develops a plan specific to you.

The process of reducing cellulite with PelleFirm takes some time. Dr. Esla recommends a series of treatments, done twice per week, for several weeks until you see the desired results. You may also benefit from regular touch-ups every six months following the initial treatment.
