Is skin-tightening treatment right for me?

Skin-tightening treatments may be the best solution if you’re unhappy with the appearance of your skin due to aging, sun damage, and other environmental exposure. Fine lines, wrinkles, sagging skin, and thin skin respond very well to Pellevé® skin tightening at Women First GYN. Pellevé skin tightening works well for any skin type, even tanned skin.

If you want improved skin tightness and fewer wrinkles, but you don’t need or want surgery or injections, Pellevé® is a great choice.

How does skin tightening work?

Your Women First GYN care provider gently sweeps the Pellevé handpiece across your face, sending radio-frequency energy past the surface skin and into the deep skin layers. The treatment is comfortable, and some patients say it’s similar to a hot stone massage on the face.

The radio-frequency energy gently and gradually warms your skin dermis to stimulate collagen and elastin fiber growth. Over the next 90 days, your body continues producing new collagen and elastin fibers. The collagen and elastin create extra skin support, smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, and improve skin tightness. You’ll also notice an improvement in skin thickness, and less sagging in the treated areas. 

You may experience mild skin redness during your Pellevé treatments, which is a reaction to the radio-frequency warmth. But, this fades quickly after your treatments, and you can apply makeup afterward if you wish. You can return to your regular routine immediately after your skin-tightening treatments.

When will I see results after skin tightening?

Most patients have tighter skin right away due to the mild edema caused by radio-frequency energy. Within around 30 days, the new collagen and elastin fibers create noticeably tighter and firmer skin with decreased wrinkles. Your results keep improving for 90 days after each treatment. 

How many skin-tightening treatments do I need?

A series of treatments, usually 3-5 in total, yields the best results. Treatments are scheduled about one month apart for optimal collagen fiber production. 

Each Pellevé skin-tightening session takes less than an hour for a whole-face treatment. If your main concern is a small area, such as crow’s feet or forehead lines, it takes only about half an hour per treatment.
