What does Pellevé do? Reduces skin laxity Reduces facial wrinkles No down time – immediate return to normal activity Minimal discomfort No anesthetic or skin cooling required Our research clearly demonstrates the power of the Pellevé Wrinkle Reduction System. With a single Pellevé treatment, over 87% of our patients experienced an improvement in skin laxity and fewer overall facial wrinkles at six months. The Pellevé Wrinkle Reduction System is an effective, non-invasive, economical and safe tool. - Dr. Antonio Rusciani Division of Dermatology, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, University of Rome, Italy 1
How Does Pellevé Work? The Pellevé Wrinkle Reduction System precisely delivers energy to the dermal tissue using advanced radiowave technology to induce collagen contraction without damaging the epidermis. The result is noticeable improvement in skin quality and appearance. Pellevé promotes the synthesis of new collagen and elastin through the use of radiofrequency. The resulting tightening of the epidermis happens gradually, without causing damage to the skin.
Why Pellevé? Why should I consider Pellevé over other skin tightening systems? Medical studies have proven that Pellevé is a safe and effective way to reduce the appearance of wrinkles without surgery. The side effects and discomfort are minimal, and no drugs or anesthetics are used during the procedure. How is Pellevé different from other skin tightening procedures? Unlike other skin tightening systems, Pellevé doesnt require anesthesia or skin cooling. Because the skin is not numb, you can describe the depth of feeling, which helps provide the best result in the area being treated. The overall result is a noticeable improvement in skin quality and appearance with minimal side effects and recovery time. What advantages does Pellevé offer over traditional cosmetic surgery? Pellevé is virtually painless (may patients describe the sensation to be similar to a warm stone massage ) and requires no recovery time, so it fits easily into busy schedules and can provide lasting improvement up to six months.
Pelleve Q & A How long does the Pellevé procedure take? A full facial treatment typically takes about 45 minutes to an hour. Because no anesthesia is used and any swelling is minor, there is no downtime. What should I expect during the Pellevé procedure? First, a gel is applied to the face. Patients say they feel a deep warming sensation when being treated with the Pellevé handpiece. No anesthetic is used, so you will act as a guide to describe the depth of the sensation as the handpiece moves across your face. What about after the procedure? Mild swelling and redness may occur, but studies have shown that this usually goes away within a few hours to a day. How long does it take to see results? Many people see the result immediately even after just one treatment, with lasting improvement for up to six months as the skin produces new collagen. Additional treatments may improve results.

Nonsurgical tightening of skin laxity: A new radiofrequency approach. 93 patients followed for 6 months after a single treatment Three independent, blinded assessors (2 facial plastic surgeons & 1 dermatologic surgeon) rated improvement over baseline for each time frame Response defined as average rating of three assessors indicating greater than 25% improvement in depth and number of wrinkles and improvement in tightness of the skin 1 Rusciani A, Curinga G, Menichini G, Alfano C, Rusciani L.
