If you want to refresh your complexion without surgery, look no further than our office! Leah Nickie ADVANCED AESTHETICS is now the only medical skin care center in Boulder to offer the Pellevé Wrinkle Reduction System, a non-invasive procedure that is FDA approved to firm and tighten skin. Using radiofrequency technology, Pellevé heats the deepest layers of the skin to stimulate collagen production, resulting in a revived appearance with no downtime. Sounds great, right? Here’s what you need to know about the procedure:
What It Is
Perfect for those who are averse to pain and unable to devote a lot of time to recovery from a procedure, Pellevé is a safe, effective, needle-free treatment for facial wrinkles with virtually no pain and zero downtime. The procedure targets the deeper layers of the skin, causing no damage to the outer layers, and therefore, requiring no downtime. Pellevé is most frequently used to tighten skin on the jawline, forehead area, eyelids and crow's feet, lines around the mouth, and the neck.
The Pellevé treatment is a relaxing procedure that feels a bit like a warm stone facial massage. Your aesthetician can perform the treatment in the same amount of time as a facial (about an hour and a half), and you’ll begin to notice a visible improvement in the texture and tone of your skin right away.
We advise three to four sessions spread out over the course of several months for the best results: firmer, tighter skin, and an overall reduction in lines. Results can last for 12 to 18 months. Yearly touch-ups will help keep your complexion looking smooth and fresh.
How It Works
Pellevé uses a unique form of radiofrequency technology to deliver constant energy in the form of electromagnetic waves deeply into the dermal tissue. Heat buildup under the skin causes collagen to contract and stimulate the growth of new collagen over time, which fills in wrinkles while also tightening the skin.
At Leah Nickie ADVANCED AESTHETICS, a consultation is always free.
