When your skin is exposed to the sun, it can suffer damage. As you age, your skin also becomes less firm and begins to develop wrinkles. Aging and sun damage can cause the collagen that is naturally produced in your skin to get disorganized. Thankfully, Art of Facial Rejuvenation offers an innovative treatment to help reduce and treat the signs of aging and sun damage.
What is Pelleve and How does it Work?
Pelleve is a cosmetic treatment that uses a form of radio frequency energy to treat the skin. The water in your skin responds to this frequency especially. When the frequency comes in contact with the water in the skin, the process of absorption causes the skin to heat up. When the skin warms, it disturbs the collagen which prompts the body to begin the repair process.
This process destroys disorganized collagen and replaces it with organized Type 1 collagen. During Pelleve treatments, the surface of the skin will need to reach a temperature that ranges between 41 depress and 44 degrees in order to be effective. The end result is smoother, tighter looking skin.
What Makes Pelleve Unique
In the past, lasers, high-energy pulses, and light radio frequencies were used to bring the skin to the desired temperature. Due to the nature of the high pulsed energy, most patients had to employ unique methods to help tolerate the pain involved. With Pelleve, instead of pulses that cause instant heat, the energy is delivered in a gradual manner. This not only allows the treatment to reach the same temperature but is also doing so without the intense pain of earlier procedures. Pelleve treatments are so gentle, they can be administered without the use of anesthetics.
In a Pelleve session, the energy is gradually administered in a fluid motion. This allows the skin to be heated in a more uniform manner. The fluid motion also encourages therapeutic heating and a mild, relaxing cosmetic experience.
Why Choose Pelleve
When you opt to receive Pelleve treatments from our clinic, your treatment will be carefully monitored to ensure the best results. We make use of an infra-red temperature gauge to ensure that the temperatures across the treatment area remain therapeutic. This gauge also allows us to maintain the precise temperature needed to trigger skin repair. Every person’s skin is different, and our methods allow us to tailor treatments to your specific needs. Gradual heating paired with temperature monitoring allows us to customize your treatments to help you get the results you desire. Since there is no need for anesthetics, patients are better equipped to provide feedback regarding their comfort levels. All things considered, Pelleve therapy is an extremely safe anti-wrinkle treatment.
How Pelleve Works
During treatment, the GlideSafe® handpiece gradually delivers radiofrequency energy through the epidermis into the dermis. Heating of the dermal layer initiates your body’s natural response to protect, heal, and grow NEW collagen.
- 1 – 3 days after your procedure, the area treated will have a “post-treatment glow”
- 4 – 15 days after treatment, your body’s natural reaction to heal comes into play as fibroblasts become present, and the collagen rebuilding process begins
- 15+ days post-treatment collagen synthesis and formal remodeling occurs. The collagen regrowth process will continue days, weeks, even months after treatment.
Thus, it is recommended to receive at least 3-5 treatments about 4 weeks apart, so you are re-boosting the collagen building process and getting optimal results.
