Pelleve Wrinkle Reduction Q & A

How does Pellevé work?

One of the side effects of aging is a decrease in collagen production. Collagen is a protein in your body that provides structure, strength, and elasticity for your skin; with its decline, your skin starts to lose its firmness and tone, and fine lines and wrinkles begin to appear. Pellevé works by signaling your body to produce collagen again in earnest. Here’s how:

  • Radiofrequency technology heats your skin below the surface
  • Your body responds to the deep heat with a healing response
  • This healing response spurs collagen production
  • New, healthier cells replace old ones, which are eliminated naturally

The success behind Pellevé is that it taps your body’s own natural resources to produce healthier, younger-looking skin, erasing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Pellevé works from the inside out, without the need for risky and invasive surgical procedures.

What wrinkles can Pellevé treat?

Pellevé works on all facial wrinkles and fine lines, and on all skin types. Some of the more common targets are:

  • Wrinkles around your eyes
  • Vertical and horizontal lines around your mouth
  • Your forehead
  • Your brow
  • Your chin

If you have a specific area you want to treat, consult with Dr. Villa about whether Pellevé is right for your situation.

How many treatments do I need?

Pellevé works by prompting your body to produce more collagen, replacing old skin cells with healthier new ones. This process takes place over several weeks or months after your treatment. Depending on the area you want to treat, a typical Pellevé procedure includes three to five sessions, which are 45-60 minutes each, with four weeks between each session.

Dr. Villa reviews your case and your goals and comes up with a timeline that gives you the best results.

Is Pellevé safe?

Since Pellevé is noninvasive, the procedure is considered safe and doesn’t carry with it the risks that invasive needles or surgery do. There’s also no downtime with Pellevé -- you’re free to resume your normal activities after each treatment.
