Pellevé Cosmetic FAQ’s

How long does each treatment take?
 
Each treatment is performed in less than an hour.
 
What can I expect after a treatment?
 
The Pellevé treatment is a comfortable skin tightening treatment that is virtually painless; it feels like a warm massage. You may be slightly pink with mild swelling for a few hours but you can wear makeup right away and resume normal activities. So it fits in perfectly for busy schedules.
 
When will I see results?
 
Generally people start to see results immediately after only one treatment. The wrinkle reduction and skin firming non-invasive effects of the Pellevé treatment will continue to improve as the skin produces new collagen.
 
How many treatments will I need?
 
For most patients, a series of three treatments spaced about one month apart may be recommended for optimal improvement. Additional treatments may be undertaken at any time for long term maintenance.
 

Pellevé Surgical FAQ’s

What is Radio Frequency (RF) Surgery?
 
RF Surgery is the passage of high-frequency radio waves into soft tissue for the purpose of making very fine and precise surgical incisions. The predictable punctures made by RF surgery mean minimal or no scarring, quicker healing and an immediate improvement to your appearance.
 
How does the Pellevé RF surgery differ from traditional surgery?
 
Because RF uses radio waves instead of a scalpel, very fine, precise incisions can be made. Only the tissue cells adjacent to the treatment area are affected and are vaporised instead of being cut through with manual pressure, as with a scalpel. Scalpels and scissors crush tissue, whereas radio waves can coagulate blood vessels as they make fine cuts, resulting in minimal bleeding, bruising and swelling.
 
Am I a good candidate for Pellevé RF Surgery?
 
If you have unsightly moles or raised lesions, facial vessels, drooping eyelids or unwanted bags under your eyes, you could be a potential candidate for RF surgery.
