Yes. The Pellevé System received FDA clearance in 2009 for the treatment of mild to moderate facial wrinkles.
Clinical studies have proven that the Pellevé treatment is a safe and effective way to reduce wrinkles without surgery. The side effects and discomfort are minimal, and no drugs or anesthetics are needed during the procedure.
Each treatment will be from 30 – 60 minutes depending on the number of areas being treated at one time.
There is generally no preparation required before having a Pellevé treatment but please arrive well hydrated.
In most cases, patients see a temporary improvement in their skin for the first 24-48 hours following treatment. However, the process of regenerating collagen takes time, and therefore full results will continue to improve over the next several months.
87.1% of patients in the FDA clinical trial showed continued improvement at six months following treatment.
Many people see results immediately after just one treatment. For many patients, a series of three treatments spaced about one month apart may be recommended for optimal improvement. Additional treatments may be undertaken at any time for long term maintenance.
