Pelleve Skin Tightening

Aging is inevitable, but with advanced non-surgical skin care, you can delay the signs of aging and experience a tighter and more youthful looking appearance. At the office of Dr. Carolyn Kassabian, we offer Pelleve, a unique skin tightening and wrinkle reduction treatment system that will take years off your face and body. 

Pelleve RF System harnesses the power of radiofrequency energy to safely and effectively rejuvenate your skin and improve facial wrinkles. The treatment is virtually painless and creates visible results in less than one hour. You will come away with a brighter complexion, smooth texture, and a skin that looks noticeably younger.

Facial Rejuvenation without Surgery

Pelleve RF offers the most complete facial rejuvenation without any cuts, incisions, needles or medications. It will perform the following functions for your facial skin: 

  • Reduce frown lines between the brows
  • Lighten the horizontal lines on your forehead
  • Fill out and smooth the conspicuous nasolabial folds 
  • Erase the lines around the mouth and lips 
  • Tighten loose skin below or above the eyelids 
  • Diminish crow’s feet around the corners of eyes 

Body Rejuvenation with Pelleve

In addition to its primary role of facial skin tightening and wrinkle reduction, Pelleve RF System may also help rejuvenate your skin in certain other body areas. These include: 

  • Tighten loose neck skin and reduce unsightly neck bands 
  • Correct the jowly look for a smoother jawline 
  • Firm up the skin in hard-to-reach areas, such as below the chin
  • Treat skin laxity in the upper arms 
  • Reduce sagging skin in the inner thighs and abdomen 
  • Improve the stubborn cellulite appearance 

How does Pelleve RF Work?

Pelleve RF is a highly versatile treatment system, which utilizes specialty electrodes to deliver precise levels of heat energy at targeted skin depths for desired results. The device includes five unique hand pieces in sizes: 10, 15, 20, 25, and 30 mm to treat multiple areas for skin rejuvenation. Using the appropriate hand piece for your affected area, we will deliver a controlled level of constant RF energy into the deeper dermis. 

The RF energy will gently build up heat at precise points where the fat and skin layers merge. The heat will trigger the formation of fresh collagen bundles in the skin, while also causing tissue contraction by stimulating the existing collagen fibers in your skin. This process will work without causing any damage to the top skin layer or epidermis. As collagen improves gradually from within, your skin will become volumized, firm, and supple. 

Safe for All Skin Types and Tones

Pelleve RF is safe and clinically proven non-ablative full face treatment that works well for all skin types and skin tones. From forehead to chin, we can treat every area of your face for skin tightening and wrinkle reduction. The advantage with RF energy is that it does not get absorbed by melanin pigment. Therefore, it is safe and effective to use also for darker skin tones.

Treatment Sessions, Recovery and Results

For the best results, we recommend up to three treatment sessions with Pelleve RF System scheduled at monthly intervals. The treatment experience is comfortable and does not involve any specific post-op downtime. You will notice improvement in your skin tone and reduction of fine lines and wrinkles in about 48 hours. The results will continue to improve over a few months as new collagen formation takes effect gradually in your skin tissue.
