Pelleve is a non-invasive radiofrequency solution used to treat facial lines and restore collagen without downtime. Now, you can refresh your appearance without surgery, and in fact, patients say Pelleve feels like a warm facial massage and takes less than an hour. The Pelleve System offers a different type of experience: a natural procedure that you can feel good about.

Best Candidates

During the consultation, Dr. Nanos and her team will help determine if laser skin tightening is right for you in order to achieve your goals. The ideal candidates for Pelleve:

  • Want a noninvasive procedure with long-lasting results

  • Have facial lines, wrinkles, and folds

  • Have excess skin on the upper eyelids

What to Expect

Prior to treatment, the skin is properly prepped and a protective gel is applied to the skin. The Pelleve wand will be placed on the skin to heat up the deep layers through highly advanced radio wave technology. There is no pain, patients typically will feel a warm sensation. Treatment typically takes less than one hour.

Anticipated Results

After treatment, the skin might be slightly red or swollen, which should resolve in a few hours. Patients can return to their normal activities immediately. Many patients report an improved appearance immediately after treatment with smoother, younger-looking, firmer skin. Over time, the skin will continue to improve since the skin’s collagen has been stimulated. For maximum results, most patients need 3 – 6 treatments.
