Is the treatment painful?
No. Unlike other skin tightening systems, a Pellevé™ treatment does not require anesthesia. A Pellevé™ treatment is virtually painless and in fact, patients comment that it feels like a warm massage.
What can I expect after a treatment?
There is no recovery time needed after a Pellevé™ treatment. You may be slightly pink with mild swelling for a few hours, you can wear makeup right away and resume normal activities, so it fits easily into busy schedules.
How soon will I see improvement?
In most cases you will see a visible tightening and lifting effect immediately after one session. Your skin will feel firmer and smoother as the texture and tone improves.
How long do the results last?
The overall result of a Pellevé™ treatment is a noticeable improvement in skin quality and appearance with minimal side effects and no recovery time. Results continue to improve for six months.
How many treatments are needed?
Many people see results immediately after just one treatment. For many patients, a series of two treatments spaced about one month apart may be recommended for optimal improvement. Additional treatments may be undertaken at any time for long term maintenance, with optimal maintenance being every six months.
Can a Pellevé™ treatment be combined with other cosmetic treatments?
Dr. Finley combines Pellevé™ treatments with other cosmetic treatments such as wrinkle relaxing agents, dermal fillers and skin resurfacing lasers. Only Dr. Finley can recommend the best treatment plan for you, based on your skin type, age, and your cosmetic goals.
