What is Pellevé?
The Pellevé system uses radio frequency technology to gently warm the skin deep beneath the surface, which over time, stimulates the body’s natural production of new collagen. Pellevé is a non-invasive solution to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles without needles or surgery.
So, Pellevé is for beauty?
Opticare Vision Center uses Pelleve to treat the area around the eye, known as the adnexa, which includes the eyelids and eyebrows and lacrimal apparatus (including the tear ducts).
Through the Pellevé treatment, you also gain the benefits of an advanced dry eye treatment - 2 treatments in one go!
How long is a Pellevé treatment?
Treating a specific area such as the delicate areas around your eyes can be completed in as little as 30 minutes! Because the collagen rebuilding process continues to work days, weeks, even months after your treatment, a series of treatments are required for the best results.
There are other treatments that Pelleve provides through radio frequency and heat technology, such as:
- Removal of Demodex Mites
- Smoothes out crow’s feet or eyelid wrinkles
- Hide creases or smile lines that give your mouth a wrinkled look.
- Smoker lines can also be improved through Pellevé RF.
Benefits of the Pelleve Treatment
Well, there are various dry treatments available such as LipiFlow or intense pulsed light therapy, sometimes these treatments may result in hair removal or simply a cost is too high to just treat dry eye symptoms.
The Pellevé treatment will not only help reduce dry eye disease but it will diminish fine lines and wrinkles across the face without the need for surgery or injections and under an hour. While this treatment combines radiofrequency energy and heat to treat the skin around the eye, this is a safely delivered and delicate treatment that will give you a smoother appearance and healthier eyelids.
What to Expect from a Pellevé treatment
- Within 3 days you’ll have a post trim and glow
- Within two weeks your body’s natural healing process will activate
- Beyond the 2 weeks, collagen synthesis and formal remodeling may occur and continue wigs or even months after the treatment.
In order to prevent the college and regrowth process, it’s recommended to get 3 to 5 treatments about 4 weeks apart in order to enhance this building process of collagen and achieve optimal results.
