What is Pelleve?

Pelleve is a radiofrequency treatment that is indicated for the treatment of skin laxity. If you have fine lines and wrinkles due to the loosening of skin as part of the natural aging process, Pelleve can help. The radiofrequency energy heats up the skin, triggering the body ’s response to create new collagen. As we age, collagen production in our skin will begin to slow and therefore eventually take a toll on our skin’s firmness. Pelleve can ignite the building of collagen in the skin, causing it to tighten.

How is Pelleve Done?

Pelleve has a warming applicator that is smoothed over freshly cleansed skin. The treatment is painless and many patients comment that it feels similar to a hot stone massage. Your skin care practitioner will glide the applicator over the skin, warming up the deeper layers and massaging the skin gently.

This relaxing treatment has no downtime and the only side effect is some slight redness that will subside in a couple of hours. Makeup can be applied right after the treatment.


For best results, a series of treatments are needed to maintain the increased collagen production over time with dramatic results. There are no side effects or immediate symptoms aside from the skin feeling warm to the touch and possibly flushed due to the heat. Over time as your skin re-builds collagen, your skin will continue to look firmer and more youthful.  Pelleve starts at $500 per area.
