Pelleve is a great, face refreshment with no down time, no needles, and very little discomfort. Some have described treatment with the Pellevé device to Dr. Prystowsky as a warm facial massage sensation. It deeply penetrates the skin with constant yet gradual radiofrequency, contracting and tightening areas of collagen. Immediately after treatment, patients can notice improvement. However, the full effect is realized over approximately a month; New collagen is formed resulting in an even more profound improvement than at first. Three treatments are typically done over a 3 month period of time. Then a maintenance program begins.
