Definition - What does Pelleve mean?
Pelleve is a skin treatment which uses radio-frequency in order to tighten the skin, giving it a youthful and fresh appearance, and is especially recommended for the treatment of sensitive areas around the eyes. The treatment is non-invasive and the sensation it creates is similar to the feeling of a hot massage. It is used to improve skin elasticity, combat wrinkles and fine lines, as well as stubborn bags and dark circles under the eyes.
TheConsultation explains Pelleve
Pelleve is a skin care treatment which is ideal for facial areas, although not limited to them. It uses radiofrequency to treat skin laxity and wrinkles, as well as imperfections around the eyes. The energy is introduced to the skin gradually, with the heat building up in the areas where the skin and the layers of fat meet. The heat from the radiofrequency modifies the collagen which is situated deep in the dermis.
This process stimulates the growth of collagen, and collagen is the protein responsible for skin flexibility. With the skin producing more collagen, it starts looking younger, smoother, and fresher, and the wrinkles start diminishing. The result of the treatment is tighter, firmer, and clearer skin, which defies the aging process due to the abundance of collagen.
The treatment is safe and painless, it requires no anesthetics and has no recovery period.
