Pelleve and PelleFirm Q & A

What is Pellevé facial skin tightening?

Pellevé reduces wrinkles and tightens the skin to give you a healthy glow. Pellevé feels like a warm massage and patients require no downtime following their treatment session. Treatment provides long-lasting results, and it can be used on all skin types.

Pellevé uses radiofrequency (RF) to induce collagen growth. It causes heat to build up at the subdermal junction, which tightens the epidermis and stimulates the production of collagen. As a result, it improves the texture and quality of your skin, making it more smooth and responsive.

What is PelleFirm used for?

PelleFirm uses RF to remove fat and cellulite and helps to tighten loose skin. It works by heating the skin, leading to increased local blood circulation. The massage head piece of the PelleFirm device removes excess fluid from the area so it can be naturally excreted from your body.

The result is a reduction in the appearance of fat and tighter and smoother-looking skin.

Who is a good candidate for Pellevé and PelleFirm?

Pellevé and PelleFirm are great for individuals looking to enhance their appearance through nonsurgical methods. You may be a good candidate if you’re:
