FDA-cleared to treat facial wrinkles without surgery. With Pellevé, you can look and feel refreshed, naturally. Put a Fresh Face Forward Pellevé precisely heats the deep layers of your skin using advanced radiofrequency energy without damaging the epidermis, or top layer. The heat causes the existing collagen in your skin to contract and tighten. Also after the treatment, your skin will start to produce new collagen. The result is an improvement in skin tightness* and wrinkles you can see and feel. Pellevé can be used to treat the skin on the face, including:

  • Nasolabial folds
  • Wrinkles around the mouth
  • Lines or folds between the eyebrows
  • Lines on the forehead
  • Loose skin above or below the eye
  • Crow’s feet

Frequently Asked Questions


How is Pelleve different from other skin tightening treatments?

Pellevé has been proven to provide safe and effective skin tightening* in medical studies. Because Pellevé is a non-invasive procedure, meaning no surgery is required, there are minimal side effects and discomfort. Unlike other systems, no anesthesia or skin cooling is needed during your Pellevé procedure, so you can return to home or work immediately following treatment.

How does Pellevé work?

Pellevé is a noninvasive system that uses radiofrequency energy to warm the skin deep beneath the surface. This gentle heating process stimulates the body’s natural collagen production mechanism, causing existing collagen to contract and new collagen to form. The result is a noticeable improvement in skin tightness and firmness, as well as ongoing collagen growth that continues over the weeks and months after the procedure. The outer layer of the skin is not harmed during the heating process.

What concerns can be treated with Pellevé?

Pellevé tightens the skin and diminishes mild to moderate wrinkles on all areas of the face, including:

Nasolabial folds
  • Wrinkles around the mouth
  • Lines or folds between the eyebrows
  • Lines on the forehead
  • Loose skin above or below the eyes
  • Crow’s feet
  • Jowls

Pellevé is particularly useful for facial areas that can be challenging to treat, such as lipstick lines around the mouth and bags under the eyes.

Is Pellevé safe?

Pellevé is FDA-approved and has been shown in medical studies to provide safe and effective skin tightening. Because Pellevé is a noninvasive procedure that does not require surgery or anesthesia, side effects and discomfort are minimized. The risks associated with Pellevé can be greatly reduced by visiting a knowledgeable and experienced provider.

What happens during Pellevé treatment?

Pellevé is a comfortable procedure that doesn’t require anesthesia. A gel will be applied to your face to help the radiofrequency energy penetrate your skin’s deeper layers. You will feel a warming sensation as the Pellevé handpiece touches the area being treated. Some patients compare the feeling to receiving a relaxing hot stone massage. You will be able to describe the depth of the heat to your specialist, which will help ensure the best possible results are achieved. Full-face Pellevé treatments are typically completed within 45 to 60 minutes.

Is there downtime after treatment?

You may return to your daily activities with no downtime at all after a Pellevé treatment. The elevated temperature of your skin during the procedure may result in some redness or light swelling, but it should subside within two to 24 hours. You can apply makeup and/or sunscreen right away.

What results can I expect?

Many patients notice visible tightening and lifting immediately after a Pellevé session. The treated area will look refreshed and have a healthy post-treatment glow. Within a week or two after the procedure, your body’s natural response to protect and heal will trigger the collagen rebuilding process. Collagen synthesis and remodeling will continue for days, weeks and even months after treatment. Pellevé results can last for up to six months or more based on the condition of your skin.

How many treatments will I need?

Although results are often visible immediately after the first treatment, most patients benefit from a package of three to four treatments spaced about 30 days apart to maximize the collagen rebuilding process. Additional treatments can be scheduled at any time for long-term maintenance. Your experience and results with Pellevé will depend on a number of factors, including lifestyle, age and medical history. Our specialist will develop a treatment plan designed specifically for your skin and cosmetic goals.
