Get a firmer, tighter complexion that makes you look years younger with Pellevé® radiofrequency technology. Sherryl Shipes, DO, of LUXE Medical Spa in Frisco, Texas, uses Pellevé to boost your production of collagen, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and enhance skin strength. The office welcomes you to book a consultation and learn more about Pellevé by using the online tool. You can also call the med spa directly.
Pellevé uses radiofrequency energy to reformulate your skin’s existing collagen and encourage it to produce new collagen. Collagen is a primary structural compound of the skin that helps give it lift and tautness. Collagen is plentiful in your youth, but age and the effects of the sun and exposure to smoke, pollution, and some foods accelerates collagen loss.
With Pellevé treatments, elasticity and tightness return to your skin, so you achieve a more youthful look. Pellevé is FDA approved and safe.
Pellevé is typically used to lift sagging jowls and drooping skin around the eyes and cheeks. Its radiofrequency energy can also address general facial and neck laxity.
Full facial treatment takes approximately 45-60 minutes. Pellevé is noninvasive, so it requires no injections, incisions, or blood loss. The wand used to apply the radiofrequency energy glides across your skin, causing slight pressure. You feel some warmth, but Pellevé treatments are comfortable and pain-free. Some patients liken it to the sensations experienced during a hot stone massage.
You begin to notice a natural radiance and glow in the hours and days following Pellevé treatment. As the weeks pass, collagen rebuilds and you notice even greater results. Optimal results appear after several months; your skin looks tauter, smoother, and more youthful.
You can go back to your normal activities following Pellevé sessions but may have some redness due to the increase in your skin’s temperature. This redness fades in less than 24 hours. If you’re going to be outside, take extra care to apply sunscreen as your skin is temporarily more sensitive to UV rays.
Dr. Shipes recommends you receive between three and five treatments over the course of several months to achieve optimal skin tightening. Men and women who are healthy but are bothered by wrinkles and drooping skin are the best candidates for Pellevé.
