Skin laxity is a condition that often occurs as a part of the aging process. When patients in and around the Washington, DC and Annapolis, MD area see their skin becoming loose and forming fine lines and wrinkles, they often take the time to speak to a board certified dermatologist such as Dr. Cheryl Burgess about non-invasive skin tightening solutions. Many patients are pleased to know that there are options available to help reduce the signs of aging and firm up the skin.
Pellevé is a radiofrequency treatment that was approved by the FDA in 2009 as a way of rejuvenating the skin without plastic surgery. Patients can use this energy, targeted onto specific areas of the face, to tighten and tone. It stimulates collagen and elastin production and helps in adding youthful volume to the face, rejuvenating its look. Patients do not need to have anesthetics applied to their skin during treatment and can enjoy spa-like service in our practice.
Most patients who are dealing with skin laxity in the face are appropriate candidates for treatment. Pellevé is a popular choice for patients who want to avoid the need for expensive, risky plastic surgeries that require extensive downtime and healing. In addition, these treatments are often much too aggressive, especially for patients with mild to moderate skin laxity. Pellevé provides gradual results and can help patients maintain their more youthful appearance longer as they age, slowing the process and therefore, allowing patients to “age gracefully.” Many patients find that Pellevé is a wonderful way to address skin laxity without pain, discomfort or expensive procedures, making it the perfect alternative to traditional methods of addressing volume loss and relaxed skin due to collagen and elastin loss.
At the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery, we welcome patients to come visit us and learn about the ways in which Pellevé can dramatically enhance their skin. Contact our team today and schedule an appointment to speak to a board certified dermatologist about anti-aging solutions and ways to address skin laxity with non-invasive tightening treatments such as this.
