At Aesthetic Harmony Canberra we use Pelleve’TM. This is a treatment that uses radiofrequency to tighten the skin and reduce noticeable wrinkles.
What is Pelleve’TM skin tightening
This procedure precisely heats the skin’s deep layers without damaging the outermost layer of the skin (epidermis). This stimulates collagen production and skin tightening. After the treatment, the skin will start to produce new collagen, leaving you with lasting, ongoing benefits. The result is improved skin quality, firmness and tightness that you can see and feel.
PellevéTM is a non-invasive procedure, meaning no surgery is required. There are minimal side effects and very little discomfort. PellevéTM has a major advantage over other systems such as Thermage, in that it causes virtually no discomfort, therefore no anaesthesia or skin cooling is needed during the procedure, so you can return to home or work immediately following treatment.
Who is a suitable candidate
PellevéTM can be used to treat the skin on the face where the following issues tend to occur:
- Lines /wrinkles around the eyes
- Lines/wrinkles around the mouth
- Line/wrinkles between the eyebrows
- Lines/wrinkles on the forehead
- Lines/wrinkles on the cheek
- Sagging skin under the chin
- Nasolabial folds
Results can be seen after just one PellevéTM treatment is some patients, however best results are achieved with multiple treatments. These treatments are schedules 4 weeks apart.
A treatment plan will be tailored to your individual needs and the number of treatments required will be discussed at your initial consultation.
What to expect
Your PellevéTM procedure will typically take about 45 to 60 minutes for a full facial treatment. You will feel a deep warming sensation each time the PellevéTM handpiece touches the area being treated. No anaesthetic is required, so you will be able to describe the depth of the feeling while you are having the treatment. This helps to ensure the best possible results.
It is important to be hydrated on the day of your treatment.
You should expect to be able to return to your daily activities with no downtime.
You can apply makeup immediately after the procedure.
Some patients experience mild swelling and redness which typically subsides 24 hours.
How are we unique
We combine multiple different treatment modalities to improve skin quality and visible wrinkles. During your initial consultation we will assess the causes of your skin laxity/sagging and discuss the best combination of treatments for your specific anatomy.
When muscle overactivity dominates, anti-wrinkle injections are used.
