Skin Tightening

Skin Tightening

Pellevé is an FDA approved, non-invasive technology that offers a safe and virtually painless way to soften and minimize wrinkles and to tighten and tone lax skin. The application of radio-frequency (RF) energy to the skin delivers thermal heat into the deep dermal layers, precisely where it’s needed to gradually heat collagen without damaging the skin’s outer surface. The selective heating of the deep dermis causes immediate collagen contraction and visible skin tightening. But there is more to come! The collagen not only contracts but it also remains stimulated to regenerate for many months to come. The results are cumulative and a series of 3-5 treatments will translate into progressive improvements in skin firmness and texture.

These are the commonly treated areas that can be chosen from, often in combination with one another:

• If possible, come in well hydrated before your procedure
• We will cleanse your skin and apply topical gel
• A hand held applicator is gently massaged over the treatment area, safely and delivering controlled and gradual heating without pain. Patients describe this as a deep warming sensation as energy is delivered.
• Witch hazel cleanse, application of SPF and customized topicals
• No down-time. No restriction with activity or sun exposure.

We know that your time is valuable to you. There are treatments we offer at Spring Skin that pair beautifully with our Pelleve skin tightening treatment. Combining treatments can help you save on time and often there are some cost savings that come with bundling treatments together. We also see more dramatic and faster regenerative results with these combination treatments.

  • Tight and Bright: This signature treatment combines the brightening and buffing benefits of our HydraFacial MD treatment with your skin tightening procedure. It exfoliates and uniformly hydrates your skin in order to improve the penetration and efficacy of your RF treatment – true synergy!
  • All about Eyes: This is the ultimate anti-aging lift for the eyes. It combines a gentle peel designed to hydrate, buff and brighten the eyelid skin with the skin tightening benefits of Pelleve to tighten skin, raise your brows and reduce fine lines around the eyes.
  • Injectables: Toxins and dermal HA fillers
  • Combination areas: combine face and neckline all in one session

This a no down-time procedure. You may have slight redness and a sensation of heat for a few hours but this dissipates quickly. This is an easy treatment to do over lunch and then return to normal day to day activities.

The results are very much cumulative and your best aesthetic results will be achieved over 4-6 treatment sessions spaced three to four weeks apart. This treatment works best for patients with mild to moderate skin wrinkling or laxity.
