Pelleve Skin Tightening Procedure - FAQ
What is Pelleve skin tightening procedure?
Pelleve is a non-ablative and non-invasive skin tightening procedure approved by the FDA. The Pelleve skin tightening procedure is designed to reduce the wrinkles and fine lines by using radio wave frequency. The radio wave technology contracts the collagen with heat which tightens the skin without destroying the top skin layer. After completing the treatment, the formation of new collagen takes place which in turn improves the quality and firmness of your skin. Pelleve is the most effective and safest skin rejuvenating system and is also customizable.
How does the Pelleve system work on the skin?
The Pelleve system uses radio wave equipment that releases energy onto the skin. The energy will penetrate deeper into the skin dermis without damaging the epidermal layer. This radio wave energy will stimulate the contraction of collagen without causing any pain. After completing the treatment, the skin will start producing new collagen which results in tighter and firmer skin.
Which parts of the body can be treated using the Pelleve system?
The Pelleve system is used to reduce facial wrinkles, fine lines around the eyes, and neck. Any part of the body can be treated using Pelleve such as the face, eyes, and neck.

Dr. Paul Jarrod Frank will apply a protective gel on the area to be treated. The patient will feel a warm or hot sensation when the doctor uses the equipment.
