Pellevé is a new innovation technology that stimulates collagen production to tighten skin and reduce facial wrinkles without surgery.

It is FDA-approved for the non-invasive cosmetic correction of mild to moderate facial wrinkles for certain skin types. Pellevé is not a laser; it is a radiofrequency device. This non-surgical wrinkle reduction treatment precisely heats the deep layers of your skin using advanced radio wave technology without damaging the epidermis, or top layer.

Pelleve FAQ’s

What is Pelleve?

Pellevé is a non-invasive skin tightening treatment that visibly reduces wrinkles and smoothes the face. Pelleve is the most significant advancement in non-surgical skin tightening therapy available today. Using continuous, high frequency, radio wave energy (RF), Pelleve generates heat in the skin, which causes it to contract. Aging and sun damage cause the collagen in the skin to become less dense and less tightly bound. Fibrous bands that hold your skin firmly to the muscle also weaken, causing the skin to lose definition and sag. Pelleve heats the collagen to a point that it can release and re-contract, resulting in tighter skin without pain.
Why Pelleve?

Pelleve is a FDA approved system available only through trained skin care professionals to treat facial wrinkles, smooth and tighten the skin. Not only is Pelleve effective in treating a common problem that comes with natural aging, it is easy to use and can reduce the appearance of wrinkles in less than an hour! Pelleve delivers quick results and is rarely accompanied by side effects or other complications.
How does Pelleve work?

Pelleve uses new and advanced radio wave technology to heat the deepest layers of skin without causing any of the skin damage associated with sunburns and skin cancer. There is no anesthesia needed, because there will be no pain felt during the non invasive procedure. A special Pelleve hand piece will be used on the wrinkled skin. Every time this Pelleve hand piece is used, a warming sensation will be felt. Once heated, the collagen in the deepest skin layer contracts, forcing new collagen to be formed after the treatment. This newer collagen quickly creates a smoother appearance in the uppermost layer of skin. The entire Pelleve treatment takes between 45 minutes and an hour. This short time is possible because a Pelleve treatment does not involve any incisions or anesthesia.
On what part of the body is Pelleve used?

Pelleve procedure is used to treat facial skin. Most patients request the procedure be targeted at the wrinkles formed at the corners of the eyelids, otherwise known as “Crow’s Feet.” Pelleve also is very effective in treating the wrinkles that stretch between the nose and the corners of one’s mouth, commonly referred to as “smile lines” or “laugh lines.”
Who is a candidate for Pelleve?

Candidates for Pelleve are healthy women and men, usually middle aged and older. Most Pelleve candidates have fine lines on the face, or wrinkled or drooping skin. Pelleve is most appropriate and effective for those with mild to moderate facial wrinkles.
What are the results of the procedure?

The results include smoother skin, elimination or reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, and the tightening of sagging skin.
Is Pelleve approved for use in the U.S.?

Yes, Pellevé was approved by the FDA in 2009. It is approved by the FDA because it is safe to use and brings about effective results with minimal complications. This FDA approval came after the delivery of a clinical study that proved that following a single treatment of Pellevé, a patient’s skin is visibly tightened and appears smoother for a minimum of six months.
  • Dr. Rudderman and his staff made the experience easy and comfortable. They were realistic communicating surgery expectations, expected pain levels and down time from work. Nurses were informative and friendly and wait times minimal. I also liked the fact that Dr. Rudderman does all his own work and doesn't let other less experienced people do parts of the surgery the way other doctors may. I'm only one week out of the surgery, but I am very satisfied with the results so far.
