Skin Tightening Q & A

What is Pellevé?

Pellevé is an FDA-cleared treatment that helps you look and feel more youthful and refreshed. Pellevé uses advanced radiofrequency energy to gently heat your skin to the deepest layers, which stimulates your existing collagen to tighten. It also promotes the development of new collagen.

Collagen is an important protein compound in your skin responsible for firmness and strength. Pellevé is especially beneficial for facial treatments including:

  • Wrinkles around the mouth
  • Lines on the forehead or between the eyebrows
  • Loose skin above or below the eye
  • Crow’s feet
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Jowls
  • Thin, crepey skin on the neck

To learn if you could benefit from Pellevé skin-tightening, consult with Dr. Riehm.

How many treatments with Pellevé will I need to see results?

Patients often see results after just one treatment. To get maximum benefit, we normally recommend 1 treatment per decade of your age. For example, if you are in your 40’s, we would recommend 4 treatments spaced about one month apart. Dr. Riehm and her team will offer a customized plan that is tailored to your skin’s health and your aesthetic goals.

Why should I choose Pellevé over other skin-tightening treatments?

Pellevé is a gentle, comfortable treatment with real results. It offers the following advantages:

  • No pain and no downtime
  • Proven safety profile
  • Short sessions of 30 minutes
  • Safe for all skin types and tones
  • Ability to treat the eye area, including the delicate skin under the eye
  • Significantly lower cost

The Pelleve' offers a safe, pleasurable, more complete and more customizable treatment at a lower cost than other skin-tightening technology.

Who is a candidate for PelleFirm?

Men and women can both benefit from the skin-tightening treatments of PelleFirm Body. It can reduce the dimpled appearance of cellulite on the body. The best candidates have flexible skin and are in good health overall. Dr. Riehm and her staff will go over your entire medical history, current health status and aesthetic goals to determine if PelleFirm is right for you.

Does PelleFirm have any side effects?

PelleFirm doesn’t cause pain during a treatment session and there’s no damage to the outer layers of your skin. The only side effect is possible redness right after treatment. This subsides within a few hours.
