How Pellevé Works

During treatment, the GlideSafe® handpiece gradually delivers radiofrequency
energy through the epidermis into the dermis. Heating of the dermal layer initiates
your body’s natural response to protect, heal, and grow NEW collagen

  • 1 – 3 days after your procedure, the area treated will have a “post-treatment glow”
  • 4 – 15 days after treatment, your body’s natural reaction to heal comes into play
    as fibroblasts become present, and the collagen rebuilding process begins
  • 15+ days post-treatment collagen synthesis and formal remodeling occurs.
    The collagen regrowth process will continue days, weeks, even months after treatment.

Thus, it is recommended to receive at least 3-5 treatments about 4 weeks apart,
so you are re-boosting the collagen building process and getting optimal results.
