About pellevé Skin Tightening

At birth, your body has a full supply of collagen and elastin that help to make your skin soft, smooth, healthy, and resilient. However, this natural supply of nutrients becomes depleted and the skin of the face and body decreases in resiliency, leading to wrinkles, lines, and sagging skin. If you want to improve the tightness and general appearance of your skin without cosmetic surgery, consider Pellevé skin tightening at Plastic Surgery Vegas in Las Vegas, NV. Utilizing advanced radiofrequency technology, nonsurgical dermal tightening stimulates the natural production of elastin and collagen in the areas treated so you can develop healthier, firmer skin. Our skilled team is happy to offer Pellevé skin tightening to our Las Vegas, NV patients looking to firm the skin on their face and body without the expense and time of a surgical lift. Make a consultation with us in Las Vegas, NV to hear more about nonsurgical skin tightening.

Ideal Candidates

Surgical skin tightening or "lifts," like facelifts, are still the best option to minimize loose, sagging skin. Pellevé skin tightening or nonsurgical skin tightening may help if you do not want to undergo cosmetic surgery. It can also be performed on many areas of the body and face, such as the areas around the eyes, cheeks, stomach, and thighs. The ideal patients for this treatment:

  • Are in good overall health
  • Are at or near a stable, healthy weight
  • Have light or medium skin looseness on the body or face
  • Have wrinkles or lines on the face or body
  • Want to improve the health and appearance of their skin

Pellevé treatment

To begin the process, the areas to be treated will be cleaned to remove any makeup, dirt, or oil. Local anesthesia options can be provided if you would prefer, but most patients find that any discomfort from the Pellevé system is temporary and easily tolerated. After your skin is prepared, the Pellevé GlideSafe® handpiece will be passed evenly over the skin several times for the most efficient treatment. The advanced radiofrequency energy stimulates the body’s natural healing properties to start producing elastin and collagen, which tightens and firms the skin. The procedure may take around 30 – 90 minutes, depending on the size and number of areas being treated. After the session is over, you will be able to leave and resume your normal activities.

expected results

Following your Pellevé skin tightening procedure, the treated skin may be mildly red, swollen, or numb. This is normal and should resolve naturally within several days. During your consultation, we will go over the best ways to care for your skin at home after your session, like keeping the skin protected and moisturized from the sun. Many patients won't see noticeable results immediately after their procedure. Since the collagen and elastin stimulation and production is a gradual process, you can see the full results of your treatment about 2 – 6 months after the procedure. However, these results should be long-lasting and will improve the overall appearance and health of your skin. You may want multiple sessions to get the ideal outcome. During your initial consultation, we will help you create your unique plan for treatment to meet your needs and cosmetic goals.

Pellevé FAQS

What is collagen?
Collagen is a protein-based tissue produced naturally in the body. Along with other functions, it works to help keep skin hydrated, elastic, and firm. However, during the normal process of aging, the natural supply of collagen becomes diminished. This causes looser and thinner skin. Using nonsurgical skin tightening, the production of collagen is increased to allow the skin to be healthier and firmer from the added nourishment.

Is the procedure painful?
Throughout a Pellevé nonsurgical skin tightening session, you may experience a little warmth, but no significant discomfort. A numbing cream can be applied to the area prior to your session, but this is typically not necessary. 

What can I expect after my treatment?
Following a Pellevé skin tightening procedure, you might have temporary redness, inflammation, or numbness of the treated area. This will typically fade in a week. Your treatment results will continue improving for a few months after your treatment as an increase in your natural collagen production firms and tones your skin. Many patients get multiple treatments before achieving their goals.

Should I get nonsurgical or surgical skin tightening?
During your initial consult, we will want to know your concerns and goals. Your answers, as well as a physical examination of your skin to assess elasticity, will determine whether you would benefit from nonsurgical skin tightening. In general, nonsurgical treatments are better for patients who have loose skin that need a little extra tone. Large amounts of loose skin will usually require surgery to excise the excess tissue.
