Pelleve Skin Tightening Q & A
What causes wrinkles?
As you age, your body’s natural production of collagen decreases and causes your skin to lose firmness and elasticity. The loose skin results in fine lines, creases, and wrinkles around your mouth and eyes, which can make you appear older than you are.
Lines and wrinkles can make your face look tired and unhealthy, causing you to feel dissatisfied with your appearance. Pellevẻ skin tightening treatments can restore a more youthful, glowing appearance with long-lasting results that you’ll love to show off.
What does the Pellevẻ system treat?
Dr. Northam uses the Pellevẻ system to treat fine lines and wrinkles on your face that appear as you age. Pellevẻ is the ideal treatment for areas where your skin naturally thins, including your:

How does Pellevẻ skin tightening work?
Dr. Northam uses the Pellevẻ skin tightening system to reverse the signs of aging. This skin tightening system is especially effective at treating the delicate skin on your face.
The Pellevẻ system doesn’t require needles or surgery. The treatment uses radiofrequency energy to stimulate the natural production of collagen in your skin. New collagen tightens and smooths the skin, making wrinkles and lines disappear without causing damage to the top layer of skin.
For several months after treatment, your body continues to produce new collagen, enhancing the look and feel of your skin. Dr. Northam may suggest additional treatments to maintain your desired results.
What can I expect from a Pellevẻ skin tightening treatment?
A full facial treatment may last 45 to 60 minutes, but treating specific areas takes less time. Dr. Northam discusses your treatment plan in detail during your consultation so you’ll know exactly what to expect.
Treatment requires no recovery, and you can return to your normal activities after your appointment. You can even receive skin tightening treatments during your lunch hour, then go back to work without limitations.
Following treatment, you may have slight redness in the treatment area that will resolve in a few hours. Once the redness goes away, you can expect to see immediate results with smoother, wrinkle-free skin.
