Choose Radiofrequency Skin Tightening in the Philadelphia Area
As we age, we lose collagen and other precious substances that give our skin its structure. If you are looking for a non-surgical way to reduce the signs of aging and tighten skin, we may have the answer. At Cross Medical Group, we offer Pellevé® for Philadelphia-area women and men looking for the most cutting-edge technology to help restore a more youthful appearance.
Pellevé® is an innovative radiofrequency skin tightening device that can help smooth out wrinkles in the forehead, eye area, and around the mouth. Best of all, no downtime is needed.
What is Pellevé®?
Pellevé® is a painless, safe method that can reduce wrinkles and tighten skin on the face. Unlike laser treatments, it uses radiofrequency energy to prompt the regenerative process. When applied to the skin, the device heats underlying tissue evenly, stimulating collagen production. Pellevé® can be an excellent option for patients who are looking to improve targeted problem areas, such as moderately loose skin in the lower face and fine lines area around the eyes.
Your Pellevé® Treatment Session
Each treatment is a straightforward procedure, which we perform regularly at our Villanova, PA, office. During the procedure, one of our specialists will apply the device to the face and neck area to deliver heat to the subcutaneous tissue. The procedure itself is relatively painless, and patients often compare the heating sensation to a hot massage. After the session, patients may experience mild redness and swelling in the treated areas. However, these side effects quickly subside.
Each session typically lasts between 20 minutes to an hour, depending on the area being treated. For optimal results, we recommend three to five treatments, spaced one month apart. Most of our Philadelphia and Villanova patients see results in about four to eight weeks—and results can be long-lasting. To help maintain results after the initial series of treatments, patients should return every six to 12 months for a touch-up treatment.
Benefits of Pellevé®
- Quick treatments
- No downtime
- Effective for all skin types
Who is a Good Candidate for Pellevé®?
Pellevé® is a safe treatment that can be used on all skin types and tones to improve nasolabial folds, crow's feet, and loose skin above or below the eye. The best candidates are those who are looking to lift their skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles but do not want to undergo surgery. For individuals with severely lax skin or advanced signs of aging, a surgical option may be more appropriate.
