Nobody likes looking older, yet most of us don’t want the pain, cost, and downtime of surgery either. Pellevé® was designed to smooth away telltale wrinkles and lines and improve skin laxity — all without surgery, downtime, or pain. In clinical trials, Pellevé achieved an amazing 85% satisfaction rate among patients who were treated. At Seeker Professional Aesthetics, Dr. Christopher Seeker and Casey Friesenhahn, WHCNP, help women and men throughout the Austin, Texas, area look their best with Pellevé treatments customized for their needs and their goals.
Pellevé is an FDA-cleared treatment that uses radiofrequency energy to gently smooth wrinkles and lines and firm up skin without the need for surgery or injections. The Pellevé treatment is completely noninvasive, and it’s performed on an outpatient basis with no downtime, so you can get back to your regular routine right after your treatment.
Pellevé can treat single areas, like crow’s feet, or it can treat your entire face, jowls and neck. This custom feature means you can focus on getting the results you want so you feel more confident about the way you look.
Pellevé works by stimulating the production of natural collagen deep within your skin. Collagen is one of the natural components of skin that helps your skin look and feel firmer, plumper, and more resilient.
When you’re young, your natural collagen levels help keep wrinkles at bay by promoting firmness and elasticity. But as you get older, your natural collagen levels decline, which means your skin loses its natural firmness, and lines and wrinkles become more evident. Pellevé uses radiofrequency energy to target and gently heat deeper layers of tissue to stimulate collagen production over time, helping your skin regain its natural elasticity so lines and wrinkles are diminished.
You can have your Pellevé treatment right in the office. A full-face treatment takes about 45-60 minutes, with individual areas taking less time to treat. Because the Pellevé device uses radiofrequency energy to heat the deeper layers of your skin, you feel some warmth as the device is moved across the treatment zone.
Once treatment is complete, the area looks reddish or pinkish for a day or two.
Pellevé is safe for all skin tones, and because it doesn’t use laser energy, you can even have the procedure during the summer without worrying about too much sun exposure. (Of course, you should always wear sunscreen to protect your skin and prevent skin cancer — even if you don’t have a facial procedure.)
Collagen remodeling takes time, and most women and men find they achieve the best results with three to five treatments spaced out about every four weeks. Your treatment plan is developed based on your specific needs and treatment goals.
