Radiofrequency Skin Tightening
Radiofrequency Skin tightening, is one of the newest FDA approved skin tightening and contouring procedure to safely treat facial wrinkles without any downtime.
It is painless, safe and suitable for all skin types. It is an excellent, non-invasive way to treat loose skin around the forehead, eyes, cheek mouth, jawline or jowls and certain other areas of the body.
Most people start to see results after just one treatment, with lasting improvement in skin tightness and tone for up to six months. Patients can return home or to work immediately after the procedure.
The result is a naturally refreshed appearance.
Advanced radio-wave technology, heating the deep layers of the skin without damaging the epidermis.
Pellevé’s unique radio-frequency technology emits energy in the form of electromagnetic waves, which create a heated treatment zone, inducing collagen denaturation and collagen contraction. Protein stimulation causes new collagen formation and production in the dermis which also results in epidermal tightening. Existing bands of collagen tighten in subcutaneous fat, creating a superficial tightening of the epidermis which improves skin firmness.

Typical treatment is three sessions, four to six weeks apart, depending on the severity of wrinkles and skin laxity.
