FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS FOR PELLEFIRM
How much does Pellefirm cost?
Depending on the number of areas and size of each area being treated, your cost for a Pellefirm skin tightening treatment will vary. Before your treatment, we will customize a unique treatment plan for your needs and estimate price. We can also discuss payment options and where to get low-interest medical financing.
What is collagen?
Collagen is a protein-based tissue naturally produced by the body. Along with other functions, it works to help keep skin firm, elastic, and hydrated. However, during aging, the natural reserves of collagen becomes lower. This then causes less elastic, looser, and thinner skin. Through nonsurgical skin tightening using Pellefirm, natural collagen production is increased to make your skin healthier and firmer from the added nourishment.
Is the procedure painful?
You may experience a slight heating sensation, but no major discomfort. If necessary, a local anesthetic may be applied to the area prior to your procedure, but this is usually not needed. If you are nervous about your treatment, talk to your technician about the process.
What can I expect after my treatment?
After a Pellefirm skin tightening session, you may experience mild inflammation, numbness, or redness of the treatment areas. This will typically subside within 3 – 5 days. Your treatment results will keep developing for several months following your treatment as your natural collagen production increases. Most patients get several treatments to achieve their goals.
Should I get nonsurgical or surgical skin tightening?
In your initial consultation, we will listen to your goals. Your answers, plus an exam of your skin to check laxity, will help us determine whether you are a good candidate for nonsurgical skin tightening. Most often, nonsurgical skin tightening like Pellefirm is better for younger patients who have mild to moderate skin laxity. Large amounts of loose skin is better helped with a lift surgery to excise the unwanted flaps of skin.
