With the Pelleve Skin Tightening System, Dr. Clevens achieves skin tightening without surgery.
The Clevens Center for Facial Cosmetic Surgery is pleased to introduce The Pelleve™ Skin Tightening System to the Southeastern United States for the treatment of sagging, loose or wrinkled skin without surgery or downtime.
How does Pellevé work?
The state of the art Pellevé system delivers constant, gradual energy to the skin, generating gradual heat to build up where the skin and fat layer come together. The increasing warmth modifies the collagen bundles deep inside the skin, causing them to contract and stimulating the growth of new collagen. This results in visibly firmer, tighter skin.
How long does the Pellevé procedure take?
A full facial treatment typically takes about 45 minutes to an hour. Because no anesthesia is used and any swelling is minor, there is no downtime.
What should I expect during the Pellevé procedure?
First, a protective gel is applied to the face. Patients say they feel a deep warming sensation when the doctor touches the area being treated with the Pellevé handpiece. No anesthetic is used, so you will act as a guide to describe the depth of the sensation as the doctor moves the handpiece across your face.
What about after the procedure?
Mild swelling and redness may occur, but studies have shown that this usually goes away within a few hours to a day.
How long does it take to see results?
Many people see the result immediately after just one treatment, with lasting improvement for up to six months as the skin produces new collagen. Additional treatments may improve results, so you should consult with your doctor for a recommended number of treatments.
Why should I consider Pellevé over other skin tightening systems?
Medical studies have proven that Pellevé is a safe and effective way to reduce the appearance of wrinkles without surgery. The side effects and discomfort are minimal, and no drugs or anesthetics are used during the procedure.
How is Pellevé different from other skin tightening procedures?
Unlike other skin tightening systems, Pellevé doesn’t require anesthesia or skin cooling. Because the skin is not numb, you can describe the depth of feeling to the doctor, which helps provide the best result in the area being treated. The overall result is a noticeable improvement in skin quality and appearance with minimal side effects and recovery time.
What advantages does Pellevé offer over traditional cosmetic surgery?
Pellevé compliments traditional cosmetic surgery. Pellevé is virtually painless and requires no recovery time, so it fits easily into busy schedules and can provide lasting improvement up to six months. Pellevé is a fantastic treatment to use in conjunction with facial plastic surgery, BOTOX, injectable fillers, and skin resurfacing.
How do I know if Pellevé is right for me?
At your private consultation at the Clevens Center for Facial Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Clevens and his staff will help you decide if the Pellevé Wrinkle Reduction System is right for you based on your skin type, age, and what you hope to accomplish by having the procedure.
