What is Pelleve' and how does it work?
* Wrinkled and lax skin comes from aging and sun damage, causing collagen to become disorganized.
* Pelleve' is radio frequency energy that is highly, and specifically, absorbed by water in the skin.
* This water absorption creates heat in the dermis disturbing collagen.
* The body sees this disturbance as a mild burn needing repair.
* In this repair process, disorganized and now disturbed collagen is removed and replaced by new, organized Type 1 collagen (collagenesis).
* To achieve this therapeutic level, temperatures in the dermis need to reach over 60 degrees Celsius; a temperature range of 41 to 44 degrees on the skin surface indicates that change.
How is Pelleve' unique?
* Previous technologies most commonly use high energy pulses to achieve the same desired target temperatures in the dermis. This has been done using laser, light radio frequency and other technologies.
* It is this pulsed, rapidly delivered, intense high energy that creates a challenge for managing pain.
* Pelleve' delivers radio frequency energy that gradually, rather than suddenly, achieves the same target temperatures in the skin.
* This gradual heating allows target temperatures to be reached without pain or even the need for anesthetics.
* By delivering this energy gradually, and in fluid motion, the dermis is heated more uniformly.
* Additionally, this fluid method of delivery sustains and prolongs therapeutic heating, and as a soothing, comfortable experience.
* Our infra-red temperature gauge allows precise monitoring of the skin as a therapeutic temperatures are achieved and maintained.
* Gradual heating, with temperature monitoring, allows for custom therapy according to the characteristics of each patient's skin.
* Without numbing, patient feedback will indicate if the temperatures reach super-therapeutic levels. Gradual warming and temperature monitoring with patient feedback, makes Pelleve' wrinkle therapy extremely safe.
* "No pain, no gain!" is no longer the underlying motto for aesthetic procedures. Pelleve' has changed that experience. It is a warm, in fact soothing, sensation that creates new collagen, softens wrinkles and tightens the skin. Now. you can correct the signs of aging, all without pain! And, it's affordable.
