Pellefirm Treatment at Washington, DC, and Annapolis, MD

Pellefirm is a treatment that stems from a skin-tightening device known as Pellevé. Pellevé has been known to work best on the face for the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles. Patients with mild to moderate signs of aging can enjoy this FDA-approved treatment at the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery. However, patients who want to achieve not only skin tightening but body contouring may enjoy the advantages of Pellefirm.

Pellefirm is a device that uses special radio frequency energy technology to help patients in achieving better body contours without surgery, exercise, or crash dieting. Pellefirm works through a specialized hand piece that delivers radio frequency energy to specific problem areas of the body such as the thighs, buttocks, abdomen, and arms. These zones are treated with a select amount of radio frequency energy, which stimulates collagen production for firmer, contoured skin. It can be used not only to achieve smoother skin and better body contours, but may also be suggested to some patients as a way to improve areas of cellulite.

Pellefirm treatment is done quickly and easily in our practice. Dr. Cheryl Burgess is a board certified dermatologist ready to assist patients in finding ways of enhancing the body’s contours. This is just one of many treatments readily available in her practice to address unwanted wrinkles and body contours. She must first determine if patients are appropriate candidates during an initial consultation visit, and then they can schedule their appointment. Patients will be able to enjoy the results for months, even years, achieving noticeable changes after just a few sessions.

Pellefirm is one of the most advanced technologies available at the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery. Dr. Cheryl Burgess and her team encourage patients to take the time to learn about all Pellefirm can do for the body and self-esteem! Contact her practice today to book a consultation appointment and discuss the advantages of Pellefirm radio frequency treatment over invasive treatment options such as plastic surgery and liposuction.
