If you're wondering how you can refresh your appearance without surgery, the Pellevé® Wrinkle Reduction System may be right for you. The Pellevé® System safely and effectively treats facial wrinkles with virtually no pain and no downtime. In fact, patients who have had a Pellevé® treatment say it feels like a warm facial massage.
Pellevé® is a new innovative radiofrequency treatment FDA approved for the cosmetic reduction of mild to moderate facial wrinkles designed to provide smoother and tighter skin. Pellevé uses radiofrequency energy to heat the deep layers of skin while bypassing the epidermis or top layer. This causes the collagen to contract and tighten and also induces new collagen formation. This results in improved skin quality, firmness and tightness that you can see and feel!
The procedure lasts just under an hour. There is no anesthetic required, no ablation or destruction of the skin layers and no downtime thereafter. Initially mild swelling and redness ensues and within 2 to 24 hours this resolves. You can return to home or work immediately after your brief procedure. Most people start to see results in just one treatment that lasts up to 6 months. A series of 2-3 treatments can prolong your results possibly to up to 18 months. Azul Medspa - Dr. Weeks MD Staff are specially trained to provide Pellevé® radiofrequency skin treatments in our office.
