Facial enhancement is a common request by patients in the DC area who visit the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery. Dr. Cheryl Burgess, a board certified dermatologist, has many solutions available in her state-of-the-art practice including Pellevé.
Pellevé is a cosmetic treatment that uses radio frequency energy to build up heat in the treatment area to modify the collagen bundles underneath the skin to help in stimulating more collagen growth. This results in the development of tighter, firmer skin in the treatment area and a more youthful appearance.
Pellevé treatment is actually quite pleasurable. Many patients relax as their treatment is performed with a special hand piece used to heat the deep layers of the skin. It is a lot like a spa treatment, without downtime, allowing patients to jump right back into the day with no interruption.
Pellevé is an affordable treatment that both men and women can use for facial enhancement. They allow patients to enjoy a non-invasive solution to fine lines and wrinkles while eliminating the downtime associated with alternative solutions such as plastic surgery. Dr. Cheryl Burgess encourages patients to find out how Pellevé works and whether it is appropriate for them. Most patients are great candidates for treatment and will be able to enjoy the results.
The results are achieved over several months and patients delight in lasting effects. Wrinkle reduction and skin firming results can be seen with just one treatment, though several sessions are recommended for optimum changes. Time is required to achieve desired results as the process of building new collagen happens over several weeks and months.
At the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery, we encourage patients to educate themselves on the ways in which cosmetic procedures can enhance their appearance and help them feel more confident with the way they look, which can carry over into their personal and business lives. Dr. Cheryl Burgess is a board certified dermatologist who has her patients’ best interests at heart. Contact her practice today to book a consultation visit and thorough examination.
