Skin Revitalization Q & A

What problems does Pellevé skin revitalization treat?

Pellevé skin revitalization treats wrinkles caused by collagen depletion, without surgery or needles. Many patients refer to Pellevé as a non-surgical facelift. Your body slows its internal collagen production as you age, and that eventually leads to loose skin, fine lines, and wrinkles. 

If you have crow's feet, smile lines, or other lines and wrinkles on your face, Pellevé can start your body's collagen regrowth process to return you to a younger appearance. 

How does Pellevé skin revitalization work?

Your Women First Weight Loss & Lipo Center provider moves the GlideSafe® handpiece gently over your skin to perform the Pellevé treatment. The GlideSafe handpiece gently heats your skin at the dermal-subdermal junction to promote new collagen fiber growth. 

The Pellevé procedure is completely comfortable, with many patients reporting that it’s a lot like a hot stone massage. Generally, a whole-face treatment takes only 45-60 minutes, and a spot treatment on an area like your crow’s feet takes as little as half-an-hour. 

What can I expect after Pellevé skin revitalization?

You could have a little bit of redness following the Pellevé skin revitalization treatment, but this generally subsides quite rapidly. It’s fine to go back to your regular daily activities after your treatment. 

You notice a post-treatment glow in the days immediately following your Pellevé treatment. At around 4-15 days post-treatment, your body’s inborn healing abilities cause fibroblasts to develop. These fibroblasts synthesize new collagen, and this new growth continues for as much as 90 days afterward. 

As the collagen remodeling continues, you experience a lessening of fine lines, firming of the skin in the treated areas, and a rejuvenated look in general. Many patients say that they get a lot of compliments about looking younger. The changes are significant but also completely natural.

How many skin revitalization treatments do I need?

It can vary according to your particular needs. Most patients have three to five skin revitalization treatments in total, with each treatment a month apart to maximize the collagen remodeling process. 

Pellevé can be an important part of your whole-body revitalization process. You can lose extra weight with medical weight loss, fine-tune your body with body contouring and lipo, and turn back the clock on your face with Pellevé. All treatments are available at Women First Weight Loss & Lipo Center, so call the office or book online now to get started.
