Looking and feeling your best gets more challenging as you age. Healthy Steps in Silver Spring, Maryland, offers a number health and wellness procedures to help you look and feel your best at any age. Pellevé skin tightening is a non-invasive radiofrequency treatment used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles to give your skin a more youthful glow without injections or surgery.
As you age, your body’s collagen production slows down. It’s the lack of collagen that makes skin appear slack and wrinkled, with unwanted expression lines, creases, and crow’s feet. Pellevé Skin Tightening is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that uses an innovative, non-invasive radiofrequency solution to boost collagen production. After the procedure, you can expect your skin to look younger and more radiant immediately.
Healthy Steps technicians use a radiofrequency device to gently warm your skin deep beneath the surface. This gentle heating is what stimulates the production of new collagen. A series of treatments produces the best results and the collagen production continues to elevate for weeks or even months after you finish your treatments.
The treatment is delivered using something called a GlideSafe® device that safely and effectively delivers radiofrequency energy into your skin. Because this technique is so gentle, it can be used on delicate areas around the eyes where crow's feet form.
Pellevé not only works over time, it also gives your skin an immediate glow and a noticeably smoother appearance. Another advantage is that Pellevé is a pain-free procedure that’s performed right in Dr. Baksh’s office, and it requires no down time. It’s often described as “relaxing,” like the sensation you get during a heated rock massage. Some slight redness is normal immediately following your treatment, but you can expect to go back to your normal activities the same day.
If you’re having your entire face treated with Pelleve, expect the procedure to take approximately one hour. If you only want to treat specific problem areas, such as forehead creases or smile lines, you could be in and out in as little as a half hour.
Pellevé is an ideal procedure for patients concerned about the visible signs of aging. Patients who want to avoid invasive surgical procedures, those who shy away from injections and needles, and those who want to avoid the downtime associated with laser skin resurfacing can all benefit from gentle, non-invasive Pellevé skin tightening.
