Frequently asked questions
How many treatments will I Need?
We usually recommend an initial course of 3-6 treatments spaced about 2-4 weeks apart. Maintenance treatments can then be performed at the patient’s will to further the improvement.
What can I expect after the Pelleve treatment
You will likely experience mild flushing and that usually subsides within a few hours. On rare occasions mild sweeling may be present. Makeup can be worn and normal activities can be resumed immediately.
Most patients will notice immediate skin tightening after their treatment. You will look rejuvenated and refreshed and results continue to improve over time as the collagen remodelling process continues. 87% of patients treated during the trials for FDA clearance continued to improve 6 months or more after a single procedure. Stacking procedures at monthly intervals exponentially improve the collagen rebuild.
How long do the results last?
The remodelling of the collagen and skin tightening are permanent, bearing in mind that the natural process of ageing and the effects of gravity cannot be avoided. Therefore, we do recommend having a maintenance treatment every so often to keep the results at optimal levels.
Pregnancy, cardiac pacemaker, clips inside the brain e.g. following subarachnoid haemorrhage. Patients with nerve insensitivity to heat anywhere in the treatment area should not be treated as they are not able to provide us with important patient feed-back during the procedure.
Local, oral and systemic anaesthetic agents must not be used prior to or during the RF treatment since they mask patient sensitivity to heat.
