Pelleve Q & A

What is Pellevé?

Pellevé is a radiofrequency (RF) energy treatment that boosts the look and tightness of your skin. Not only does the RF energy help your body produce more of this natural protein that provides your skin with tautness and lifts, but Pellevé also encourages reformulation of your existing collagen.

Collagen is a primary structural compound of the skin that helps give it lift and tautness. Collagen is plentiful in your youth, but age and the effects of the sun and exposure to smoke, pollution, and some foods accelerates collagen loss. Because Pellevé treatments set in motion the production of additional collagen over time, a natural tightness returns to your skin.

How does Pellevé work?

During wrinkle reduction with Pellevé, the handpiece glides over your skin to deliver radiofrequency energy to select treatment areas. The energy stimulates natural collagen production, which occurs for days, weeks, and months after your session.

Pellevé uses RF energy to reformulate your skin’s existing collagen and encourage it to produce new collagen. With Pellevé treatments, boosted collagen returns firmness and strength to your skin, so you achieve a more youthful look. Pellevé is FDA approved and safe for most skin types.

If it’s right for your skin-rejuvenation goals, Dr. Ashtari recommends 3-5 Pellevé treatments spaced four weeks apart for optimal results.

What is PelleFirm®?

PelleFirm delivers radiofrequency energy to the skin to deeply heat and massage the tissue in areas such as your thighs and buttocks. The system heats up the skin and improves circulation in the treated areas. This moves around any excess fluid, a leading cause of cellulite, so your body naturally eliminates it to smooth out your skin.

To achieve a noticeable reduction in cellulite, Dr. Ashtari recommends multiple sessions, and the exact number depends on the severity of your cellulite and how your body responds. You may opt for touchups every six months.

Do I need to schedule downtime following Pellevé treatments?

Whether you opt for Pellevé wrinkle-reducing or PelleFirm body sessions, you don’t need to schedule downtime following treatment. You may have some redness in areas exposed to the RF energy, but this usually fades in less than 24 hours.

Do avoid direct sun exposure and be especially vigilant in applying sunscreen following Pellevé treatments because your skin is temporarily extra sensitive to UV rays.
