Pelleve treatment entails the use of heat to accelerate collagen production, resulting in skin contraction and tightening. The procedure does not require any medication, making it a safe treatment with barely any discomfort or side effects.
How Does Pelleve Treatment Work?
This treatment involves delivering advanced radiofrequency waves to the dermal tissue at a slow and steady pace. This warms up the skin to alter the collagen bundles deep within the skin. This causes contractions to improve collagen levels and facilitate the formation of new collagen. The duration of the entire treatment is between 30 and 60 minutes, varying due to the number and size of the areas under treatment. The treatment is painless and is often described as feeling akin to a warm massage.
The system frequency used during the treatment is monopolar, and requires an electrode handpiece (HP) and a neutral pad (antenna) to form a circuit. The system typically consists of 5 types of handpieces (10, 15, 20, 25, 30 mm). A handpiece is massaged around the areas requiring treatment while helping you to monitor the depth of the heating sensation.
