Pellevé™ Wrinkle Treatment System At Young Medical Spa® In Center Valley & Lansdale, Pa
New skin tightening technology brings a more youthful appearance back to patients with virtually no pain and little downtime.
By: Paula D. Young, B.S., R.N.
The Pellevé™ is cleared by the FDA and uses radiofrequency technology to tighten skin and reduce wrinkles. It delivers heat to deep layers of the skin where fat resides. This stimulates the contraction of the deep tissues for an overall smoothing effect. The heat energy also stimulates the production of new collagen over time, resulting in firmer, tighter, and smoother skin. The strength of the delivered energy can be adjusted for the patient’s overall comfort.
“Pellevé™ reduces facial wrinkles by gradually and progressively heating the deep layers of the skin with a warming device. The heat causes the collagen in the skin to contract, and also stimulates new collagen production, which results in improved skin quality and appearance,”
“Many of my patients don’t want to have cosmetic surgery, but do want to feel better about their appearance,”
Dr. Young explained that immediately after the procedure, patients should typically expect to see skin that appears firmer and tighter. The overall result is a noticeable improvement in skin quality and appearance with minimal side effects and recovery time.
When asked who may be a candidate for Pellevé™, Dr. Young indicated that patients should speak to us about whether Pellevé™ is appropriate for them based on their skin type, age, lifestyle and what they hope to accomplish by having the procedure performed.
When asked what he’d like patients to know about the Pellevé™ Wrinkle Treatment System, Dr. Young replied, “Getting a Pellevé™ treatment turns back the clock on the aging process and may help slow the progression of facial wrinkles, folds and loose skin that can lead patients to seek surgery later.
Dr. Young continues to state that “We’re excited to bring this revolutionary skin-tightening technology to the Lehigh Valley, Lansdale and surrounding areas. Pellevé™ is a great option for the millions of people who want to achieve their aesthetic goals of skin rejuvenation without surgery.”
