The science behind beautiful results

The secret to Pellevé’s non-invasive, non-surgical skin tightening is radiofrequency energy. Dr. Burgess massages the treatment area with a mobile hand piece to direct a safe, controlled dose of RF energy deep into dermal tissues. These electromagnetic waves create a thermal response at the subdermal junction (where skin meets the underlying layer of fat) that encourages collagen production without harm to surface skin. Collagen provides a fibrous support meshwork, so stimulation from Pellevé firms lax skin.

Facial wrinkle reduction

The Pellevé system received FDA approval in 2009 for treatment of mild to moderate facial wrinkles. No pre-treatment preparation is required, there is no need for anesthetic and risk of side effects, such as mild and temporary pinkness or swelling, is minimal. Best of all, there is no downtime – you may wear makeup and return to usual activities right after treatment (but please wear broad spectrum sunscreen to preserve your skin).

Most patients get lift and tightening in treated areas immediately. Then, as collagen remodeling continues, skin becomes smoother and tone and texture improves for up to six months.

You’ll see a noticeable difference after several treatments, but Dr. Burgess may recommend a series of sessions spaced about a month apart for optimal wrinkle reduction and skin tightening. Pellevé also compliments other rejuvenation procedures like neuromodulators and dermal fillers.

Body contouring

New PelleFirm takes Pellevé technology to the next level with body contouring. The FDA-approved system also uses RF energy in a treatment that contributes to sleek body contours, smoother skin and improvement in the appearance of cellulite.

A larger hand piece with a variety of massage heads firms and smoothes problem zones like arms, abdomen, buttocks and thighs. It’s safe for all skin types and has the same pain-free, no downtime amazing results as Pellevé facial treatment.
