Pellevé Tightening

Pellevé precisely delivers energy to the dermal tissue using advanced radiofrequency technology to induce collagen contraction without damaging the epidermis. The result is skin tightening via soft tissue coagulation.

Pellevé’s unique radiofrequency technology emits energy in the form of electromagnetic waves, which creates a heated treatment zone. Increased resistance causes heat buildup at the subdermal junction. Heat induces collagen denaturation and collagen contraction. Protein stimulation causes new collagen formation and production in the dermis which also results in epidermal tightening.

Patient Satisfaction

Comfortable Treatment
Because the Pellevé treatment is comfortable and a pleasurable experience, patients will return to your office for additional sessions, making the Pellevé System an excellent investment for any cosmetic practice.

Measurable Results – Even After a Single Session
In most patients, there will be an immediate skin tightening* effect. Typically one to three sessions are recommended for optimal results, depending on the severity of wrinkles.

No Downtime
Most patients look refreshed immediately after a Pellevé treatment. Some patients may have slight transient erythema immediately following treatment, but can wear makeup right away and resume normal activities.

Minimal side effects
A Pellevé treatment is virtually pain free and no anesthetic is used for the treatment. The patient may experience some transient erythema or edema, which is typically gone in a few hours.


Pellevé Clinical Studies?

In a study published in the Journal of Drugs and Dermatology, 93 patients were followed for 6 months after a single treatment. Three independent, blinded assessors (2 facial plastic surgeons and 1 dermatologic surgeon) rated improvement over baseline for each time frame. Average rating of the 3 assessors indicated greater than 25% improvement in depth and number of wrinkles and improvement in tightness of skin.*


After one month, 9 out of 10 patients experienced a significant response and ~90% of those patients maintained that response 6 months after their first and only treatment!
