Pelleve® in Staten Island, NY
Dr. Decorato offers Pelleve® treatments to patients throughout New York and New Jersey, including Staten Island, Manhattan, Brooklyn, Elizabeth, Newark, Jersey City, and Perth Amboy.
What is Pelleve®?
Pelleve® uses radiofrequency to deliver a constant, gradual energy to the skin, so that heat builds up where the skin and fat layer come together. You may also hear it referred to as PelleFirm®. The increasing heat from the Pelleve® handset modifies the collagen bundles deep inside the skin, so that they contract and encourage new collagen to grow gradually. This means firmer, tighter skin that is noticeable right away, with results that last.
What conditions does Pelleve® treat?
Pelleve® has been proven safe and effective in alleviating the following skin conditions:
- Skin laxity
- Ageing lipstick lines
- Bags and dark circles under the eyes
Pelleve® vs. PelleFirm®
You can think of PelleFirm® as the sister of Pelleve®. Pelleve® is a radiofrequency treatment for the face and PelleFirm® is a radiofrequency treatment for the body. Dr. Decorato offers both treatments.
What advantages does Pelleve® offer?
Unlike other skin tightening treatments, there is no need for aesthesia or skin cooling with Pelleve®. Since the skin isn’t numbed, patients are able to describe the depth of feeling during their treatment, which helps us provide optimal results. No recovery time or downtime is required after treatment, so you can resume normal activities right away.
What can I expect from treatment?
Treatment is applied by Gloria Castellucci, M.A. a licensed aesthetician. First, a protective gel is applied and then the Pelleve® hand piece is applied to the skin. Patients typically experience a deep warming sensation at this point. Usually patients don’t feel any discomfort, and the treatment only lasts about 45 minutes to an hour.
Pelleve® & PelleFirm® Results!
How soon will I see results?
Many patients will see results after just one treatment, but most will need a course of two or three treatments for the very best results. During your initial consultation, you will assess whether Pelleve® is right for you based on your treatment needs. Patients typically experience improvement in their skin as long as six months after treatment.
