On the Doctor Oz show show today, featuring "Age Erasers", Dr Doris Day introduces an alternative to a traditional face lift, the new Pelleve 30-minute treatment to tighten skin.
Pelleve is a type of skin tightening treatment that has proven very effective in reducing the wrinkles and fine lines that plague many patients as they age. The treatment is non-invasive and as such, allows patients to receive the treatment in under an hour. The non-invasive aspect also makes side-effects minimal and allows for a shorter recovery time than is associated with other skin rejuvenation procedures.
Pelleve administers advanced radio wave technology via an exclusive hand held machine. The procedure consists of the hand piece being gently applied to the skin and delivering heat and energy to the deeper dermal layers, without damaging the epidermis. As the dermal tissue is heated, the collagen located in this deep layer of skin contracts. As the old collagen contracts, newer collagen is formed. With the formation of new collagen comes a smoother, tighter appearance of skin, as well as the elimination of any wrinkles or fine lines.
The treatment requires absolutely no anesthesia. Because of this, the entire procedure can be completed in less than an hour. In fact, for many patients, the procedure takes less than half an hour to complete, depending on the amount of skin targeted during the treatment. The nature of the procedure makes it possible for the patient to experience minimal recovery time. Side effects experienced during recovery may include minor swelling or redness. These side effects usually dissipate in two to three days.
Another advantage of choosing Pelleve for skin treatment is that the procedure is approved by the Food and Drug Administration. The FDA cleared the procedure following impressive clinical studies that proved the efficacy of a single Pelleve treatment in keeping skin wrinkle free for a minimum of six months.
Pelleve is a wonderful option for those suffering from an increase in facial wrinkles and fine lines, especially crow's feet and smile lines. The non-invasive treatment effectively removes wrinkles and keeps skin smooth for a full six months, while involving minimal complications for patients.
