Cynosure Pelleve®

Effective, Non-invasive Skin Tightening

Pelleve safely and effectively treats facial wrinkles and laxity.

What Is Cynosure Pelleve?

Pelleve is an effective radiofrequency treatment that can create visible improvement in skin tightness and wrinkles. Rather than using laser technology, Pelleve focuses radio wavelengths to make skin look refreshed 

How Does Cynosure Pelleve Work?

Using radiofrequency waves, a gradual and constant increase of energy heats the deeper layers of the skin causing collagen bundles to contract. As the cells (fibroblasts) are heated, they become increasingly active and generate new collagen. The immediate collagen contraction causes visible firming immediately following treatment, whereas the cell stimulation results in a longer-term tightening.  

Pelleve treatment is safe for all skin types and requires no downtime.

Pre-treatment Instructions

  • Daily use of a sunscreen with SPF 30 and zinc oxide as an active ingredient is recommended. 
  • If you have a history of cold sores, be sure to notify your provider prior to the procedure and he or she will provide a medication that can reduce the likelihood of a breakout. 
  • Radiofrequency treatments work best on well hydrated skin. Drinking ample water (at least eight 8 oz glasses of water a day) and using hydrating skin care regimen in the weeks before a treatment will yield better results. 

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What Will the Procedure Feel Like? 

During the treatment, the energy warms the underlying tissue. Pelleve is a gentle warming, so topical anesthetic is not necessary. 

  • What Will I Be Like Afterwards? 

The skin may appear flushed for a few minutes after the treatment. Some patients note an immediate improvement, although this usually dissipates within 24-48 hours, as the true results take weeks to months to achieve. You can apply makeup and sunscreen immediately after the treatment and return to normal activities. 

  • How Many Treatments Are Needed? 

Pelleve requires three treatments spaced one month apart and then one maintenance treatment every three to four months. 

  • What Results Can I Expect? 

One can expect an increase in the skin’s tightness and an improvement in the overall texture and smoothing of the skin. The results will develop gradually as the collagen remodeling process occurs over a period of three to four months. 

  • Who is an Ideal Candidate for Pelleve? 

Pelleve is recommended for all skin types with mild facial wrinkles and laxity around the eyes who would like to revitalize their skin for a smoother, more youthful look. Tell your provider if you have a pacemaker, defibrillator implant or auto-immune disease, as the Pelleve procedure may not be right for you.
