02 Aug Benefits of Pelleve Over Thermage for Non-Surgical Skin Tightening
Non-surgical skin tightening is a great way to restore some of the appearance that you may have enjoyed during that time in your life before the lines and wrinkles began to show up. That was also the time before the skin began to sag. These things happen with age partly because the level of collagen in the skin does not remain the same throughout life. Collagen is a protein in the skin that helps it to look full and firm. The body naturally produces it, but the amount produced significantly drops off when the youthful years are long gone. As a result, in order to restore the skin to its former level of tightness, the collagen level must somehow be elevated to what it was in the past.
There are a number of treatment methods that are currently used to aid with non-surgical skin tightening. One such method is Thermage®. It uses radiofrequency energy to tighten the skin. Another treatment that is gaining in popularity is Pelleve®. This treatment also uses radiofrequency energy, but it is considered by many to be a step above Thermage® due to the incredible results it produces.
Pelleve® was approved by the FDA in 2009, so you can be sure that it is a safe and effective non-surgical skin tightening treatment. It is also considered to be fast. As the treatment is given, the radiofrequency energy converts to heat. The heat then stimulates the production of new collagen.
One of the great things about Pelleve® is that it can treat a variety of skin concerns. In addition to tightening the skin and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, it can be used to address sunspots and skin discoloration.
Patients tend to notice immediate improvements after their treatment session, with results getting better in the months following treatment. Once the collagen is at its top levels, you will enjoy that fullness that is free from sagging and the associated wrinkles.
If you would like to get rid of fine lines, wrinkles and other signs of aging or skin damage but do not want a surgical procedure, you should consider non-surgical skin tightening via Pelleve®. This treatment has many advantages over Thermage®, including improvements that can last for up to six months!
