|Treatment Time: Approx 45 mins in first instance (in-depth assessment and treatment)|
|Duration of results: Full effects will take place over 6 months. As skin continues to age, further treatments can help to slow down the natural ageing process|
|Downtime: Normal activities can resume immediately|
|Side effects: Slight redness immediately after treatment may occur but this should quickly resolve|
Pellevé is a safe, effective and non-invasive skin tightening and wrinkle reducing treatment which uses radio frequency. The radio frequency waves can penetrate into the deep layers of the skin and generate heat, which causes collagen fibres to contract and tighten and stimulate new collagen production. This helps improve both the feel and appearance of the skin.
I particularly like to use it around the delicate eye area to target under-eye wrinkles and eye bags. It can provide the perfect eye refresh for this challenging area.
It can also be used as a treatment for the whole face.
There is minimal discomfort associated with this procedure and very little downtime (the skin may look a little red immediately after your treatment but should resolve itself within a few hours).
What areas does Pellevé treat?
Pellevé can be used to treat the whole face. It is a particularly nice treatment to use around the eye area to target wrinkles and eye bags.
Is Pellevé painful?
You will feel your skin heating up but the handpiece is quickly moved around as you feel the sensation of heat. Minimal discomfort may vary from person to person but the sensation only lasts as long as the handpiece is in a particular area.
Is there any down time?
There is very little downtime and you can resume day-to-day activities immediately with zero recovery time. There may be slight redness after the treatment but this usually resolves after a few hours.
What aftercare will I need?
The use of a high factor sunscreen to protect the skin is important following treatment. Aftercare will be discussed with you in clinic and we will also be on hand to answer any questions you might have during the days or weeks afterwards.
When will I see results and how long will they last?
In the days following a full face treatment, you should be able to see a noticeable glow to your skin. Over the subsequent weeks, you should be able to see continuing improvement in the treated areas.
How many treatments might I need?
An initial course of 3 treatments, spaced a month apart, is recommended. Ongoing maintenance treatments can then be undertaken as and when required.
