Pellevé Q&A with Edgar Fincher, MD
Pellevé is a non-invasive solution to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Pellevé is non-invasive and produces lasting results without needles or surgery. Pellevé is a safe and effective option for a no downtime procedure that gives you a refreshed youthful appearance. A series of treatments is recommended to boost the collagen rebuilding process.
Pellevé uses radiofrequency energy (electrical current produced by radio waves) to precisely heat the deeper layers of your skin without damaging its surface. When these deep layers are heated, it causes collagen, a key component of the skin’s healthy support structure, to contract. This contraction both increases skin tightness and causes skin cells to produce more collagen. This new collagen helps replace what age has degraded, improving overall tightness and smoothing wrinkles.
