Wrinkles are the unceremonious signs of ageing but can also occur early in life due to external factors such as sun exposure and unhealthy habits, which misalign the underlying skin structure. Pellevé is an FDA-Approved non-invasive treatment that safely and effectively treats facial wrinkles using a radiofrequency aesthetic solution. Pellevé is a great solution for facial rejuvenation and is ideal for refreshing the eyes, fine lines around the lips and reducing jowls.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How does Dr. Sain treat age-related wrinkles?
At Studio Q you can choose from several wrinkle-reducing procedures, but for a noninvasive option Dr. Sain recommends Pellevé. This gentle treatment is designed for the delicate skin on your face, where it effectively diminishes:
• Crow’s feet
• Wrinkles around the mouth
• Frown lines between the eyebrows
• Lines around the forehead
• Loose skin above or below the eye
• Nasolabial folds (wrinkles from each side of the nose to the corners of your mouth)
How does Pellevé work?
The Pellevé wrinkle reduction system uses radiofrequency energy that safely passes through the upper layer of skin and into deep layers below the surface. Two things happen when deep tissues are heated:
• Existing collagen contracts
• New collagen is produced
As new collagen develops, it moves toward the skin’s surface, where it diminishes wrinkles and replaces old skin with fresh, strong skin.
In addition to refreshing your skin, Pellevé has another benefit: The radiofrequency energy is delivered through the GlideSafe® handpiece. This piece was specially developed for use on facial skin, including the delicate, thin skin around your eyes.
What can you expect during wrinkle treatment with Pellevé?
Most patients compare their Pellevé session to a comfortable, hot stone massage. It only takes 45-60 minutes to treat an entire face, so your session may take less time, depending on the extent of your treatment. After the procedure, your skin may be slightly red, but that resolves quickly and you won’t need any recovery time.
When will you see results?
Many patients notice their skin is tighter immediately after the treatment, but more permanent results are seen after a series of treatments, because it takes time for new collagen to be produced and to replace old skin. Your skin continues to produce new collagen for 60-90 days, so you’ll continue to see tighter skin and fewer wrinkles.
