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.

"My experience at "Plastic Surgery Vegas" practice has been amazing.Everyone I came in contact with was very welcoming and professional. I can not speak highly enough of Dr. Higgins and his close staff (Laura & Kristin). This was to be my 4th breast augmentation in 25years (my 1st with Dr. Higgins), which included reconstruction/lift due to wanting to go smaller with this surgery. After my initial consultation with Dr. Higgins, I felt very comfortable and confident to proceed, but as a nurse, I had a few more questions. His reception had no problem scheduling an additional appointment to address any additional concerns. In my career as a nurse, I have met and worked with many physicians over the years. I have come across very few surgeons as authentic, caring, skilled and talented as Dr. Higgins. I felt that Dr. Higgins really listened to me, and addressed my questions and concerns. As most people are,,,, I was nervous about the surgery but felt very taken care of by Dr. Higgins and his staff all the way into to O.R. and just prior to being put to sleep. In all of my previous surgeries, I had never been met with such attention and compassion up to and beyond my surgery. Additionally, my results are PHENOMENAL, and have far exceeded my expectations. I would trust & recommend Dr. Higgins, as well as "Plastic Surgery Vegas" not only to complete strangers, but to anyone I love and care about. Las Vegas is a city that attracts lots of Plastic surgeons, which can make choosing a quality Plastic surgeon VERY difficult. I took my time, I did my research, and am extremely happy I did. If you expect quality care and results, Dr. Higgins, and Plastic Surgery Vegas will far exceed your expectations."- M.N. / Google / Jan 25, 2020
"My Only Regret is That I Waited 15 Years! - Although I had contemplated a BA for nearly 15 years, I had never had, nor been able to take the time off of work necessary for a proper recovery; while the pandemic seemed like a less than ideal situation, knowing that I wouldn't be rushed back to work was certainly a bonus, and thus I began my consultations. Living in Las Vegas, I met with six local surgeons as well as a remote consultation with a surgeon in Scottsdale, AZ - I wanted to do my due diligence, as well as meet those my girlfriends had recommended so highly.Dr. Edwards has a wonderful bedside manner, and speaks to you with a professionalism that isn't the least bit patronizing (as a medical practitioner myself, it's infuriating to be talked down to, and I can only imagine the frustration as a lay-person.) While I was completing my Vectra scan, he pulled up his previous bodybuilding clients with comparable stats, something no other PS did; we discussed that I wanted a very natural result, that matched my proportions, rather than looking like I came to Vegas to have my breasts done. He was one of two PS I met with who didn't try to coax me into something larger, and I came out of surgery with exactly what we had discussed: 295ccL/310ccR Natrelle Inspira Soft Touch Moderate Profile Silicone Unders. I couldn't have been happier then, and now, seven weeks later, I am still just as elated. At 6WPO, I was cleared to return to the gym, albeit carefully, and have spent the past week testing out different movements from my usual program (excluding chest, obviously) with no issues at all; recovery has genuinely been a breeze."- I. / RealSelf / Jul 28, 2020
"This is my second surgery with Dr Edwards, and I have to say that the experience was as good as the first one. I developed a severe capsular contracture after a breast revision with a different doctor. Dr Edwards have been trying really hard to help me with my issues, and even though it has been a long and painful journey getting my normal breasts again, I am and forever will be grateful that I met Dr Edwards because he is an outstanding physician, he has great bedside manners. He treats me like I am part of his family, he never appears to be in a rush, he will take the time to answer all your questions, and makes sure you are well taken care by everyone in the office. He has done everything and anything possible to prevent my body from developing a capsular contracture, and I trust him without hesitation. So far, my breasts look perfect, and I am very hopeful that this time my body will take the implants. Also, I am very thankful to Cathy that has been with me from the beginning of this long journey. She is kind, professional and very knowledgeable. If I ever had a concern, she was always available to resolve any issue. I never really had to request to talk to Dr Edwards because Cathy, and this time Cynthia too, always took care of anything I needed. Thank you so much ladies! Also, Sandra is Dr Edwards financial assistant, and she is awesome, and very helpful with the financial part of the process. Finally, the office is beautiful, clean and very welcoming. Everyone in the office, including the front desk clerk are very nice and friendly. I highly recommend to anyone looking for a great plastic surgeon to go see Dr Edwards because you won’t regret it. He is the best of the best! Thank you Dr Edwards for all that you do to makes us look pretty and confident! ❤️🙏🏼"- A.J. / Google / Jul 20, 2020
"I Am Forever Thankful - Dr Edwards did my breast implants revision due to capsular contraction. And I have to say that meeting him it is the best thing that happened to me. Besides being highly skilled on this procedure, and doing an outstanding job, he is very kind, professional and always treat you like you are part of his family. My surgery went very well. I had minimal pain, no swelling and no bruising. He followed me frequently so check my progress. His assistants Cathy and Cynthia are super sweet, caring and extremely knowledgeable, you can tell that they are well trained. Every time I had a question or concern, they always called me back with a solution or answer to my problem. I always felt confident that if I needed something, he was always available to talk to me, but like I mentioned before, Cathy and Cynthia were so awesome that many times they answered my questions very well that I did not need to talk to Dr Edwards. Also, Sandra is Dr Edwards financial assistant and she is awesome, she will work with you through the process and will do her best to find you the best financial option for you.I highly recommend Dr Edwards to anyone that is looking for a great plastic surgeon. Trust me on this! You won’t regret meeting him. He is the best in town! Thank you for giving me back my confidence! I am forever grateful to Dr Edwards, Cathy and Cynthia for making this experience less traumatic."- A. / RealSelf / Jul 18, 2020

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
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.
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.
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.
