Facial skin tightening with no down time.
Lie back, relax and enjoy the Pellevé experience at Liberty Belle Skin Centre – one of only a few providers of this advanced treatment in Victoria. Virtually painless and generally quite pleasurable, Pellevé is a comfortable skin tightening treatment that produces visible results in under an hour.
Pellevé leaves your skin looking more radiant by delivering constant, gradual radio frequency energy deep into the skin, causing heat to build up where the skin and fat layer meet. The application of gradual heat modifies the collagen bundles deep in the skin, causing contraction and stimulating the growth of new collagen.
You will come away from your Pellevé treatment with skin that feels firmer, tighter and looks noticeably younger.
Your skin will continue to show visible signs of improvement for at least six months as your skin continues to produce new collagen.
Pellevé is suitable for all skin types and is best on those with concerns related to ageing and skin laxity. Pellevé can treat:
- Slack skin along the neck and jawline (jowls), and under the chin
- Mild to moderate skin laxity on the backs of the arms
- Loose skin on the abdomen and inner thighs
- Skin laxity around the eyes, face and neck
It’s important to note that Pellevé only targets specific treatment areas and will not tighten or firm fatty bulges or loose muscles. Individuals who want more substantial skin tightening benefits may want to consider a surgical alternative.
We can tailor a treatment plan specific to your skin type. Your skin tightening program can be supported at home with quality medical strength products that treat and nourish the skin. Your skin will be professionally assessed and a treatment plan devised within your desired budget.
Infrared light and radio waves heat the dermis well below the skin’s surface, targeting water in this area. This causes immediate collagen contraction and stimulates collagen growth, which in turn produces tighter, smoother and younger-looking skin. Continuous cooling is provided when using the laser tightening machine during the procedure for added comfort and to protect the top layer of skin.
A course of up to 4 skin tightening treatments is usually required for best results. Collagenesis or production of collagen continues for up to 12 months after the treatments.
Your skin will have redness similar to a mild sunburn and feel tingly for the first 3 to 5 hours following treatment. This will subside quickly and you will still be able to continue with your daily activities.
If you have had treatments to the face, you may like to apply cool packs until the warm sensation has reduced, and then apply mineral makeup to cover any residual pinkness. There is no flaking or peeling of the skin.
The clinician will assess your skin and depending on your skin type and needs, up to 4 treatments may be recommended. These can be spaced 1 to 3 months apart for best results. Many patients who have Pellevé skin tightening treatments also choose dermal fillers or anti-wrinkle injections for additional anti-ageing benefits.
The result is immediate due to initial tightening. Then, over the next 3 to 6 months, the natural collagen stimulation process creates further new collagen. This in turn causes additional skin tightening.
