Pellevé

Radio Frequency Collagen Production Stimulation

Pellevé is a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure that increases collagen production and results in lifting, firming, tightening and smoothing of your skin using radio frequency.

Why do we get wrinkles?

As we get older, the collagen foundation that provides support to our skin begins to break down which causes skin to become lumpy and irregular. Some other factors that cause the skin to age are:

  • UV radiation from the sun or tanning booths can cause collagen to break down at a higher rate when compared to chronological aging.
  • Smoking harms collagen and elastin. It also creates the fine smokers’s lines around the mouth.
  • Genetics play a role as some families are more susceptible to wrinkles. People with blue eyes and fair skin are more prone to sun damage.
  • Frowning creates wrinkles because as skin ages the skin gives in to the pulling forces.
  • The loss of fat from facial areas during the aging process accelerates the appearance of aging.
  • Poor diet can also cause damage. A diet high in mono-unsaturated fat, olive oil and olives, fish, reduced fat milk and milk products, vegetables, eggs and water was shown by an Australian study in 2001 to keep skin younger longer.

How Pellevé Works

When RF energy (the gradual warming of pellevé’) is directed down into the deeper layers of skin, a natural wound healing response is stimulated. The heat generated creates an “injury zone” and to repair the injury, your body breaks down the old disorganized collagen and creates new collagen. The benefit of stimulating your own collagen production is that collagen is deposited in an orderly, structured manner and there is no risk of allergy, immune reaction or injection-induced infection. Response varies among patients depending upon skin type (thin, dry, heavy, oily and normal), age, lifestyle and one’s own particular physiology. Thirty percent of our body’s protein is comprised of collagen, so patients over 65 years of age may see less results because as skin ages, our production of protein decreases.

Am I a candidate for Pellevé?

Most likely, as Pellevé treats most skin types and those who have the treatment get new collagen stimulation. The results are long-lasting.
