Pelleve

Wrinkles and lines can develop in the face, neck, chest, and hands as a natural part of the aging process. If you experience common issues such as smile lines, crow’s feet, and other creases, you could benefit from a treatment series with Pelleve. This non-invasive treatment can give your face a more youthful and freshly rejuvenated appearance and is an effective treatment for all skin tones.

What is Pelleve?

Pelleve is FDA-approved for safe and effective treatment of facial lines and wrinkles. Because it is non-surgical and non-invasive, no drugs or anesthesia is required. Pelleve treatments use radiofrequency to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and tighten the skin. Treatment with Pelleve can give effective results with no needles involved. Most individuals find the treatment relaxing.

How is Pelleve Treatment Done?

During treatment with Pelleve at DWH Med Spa, a protective gel is first applied to your face. Next, we use a GlideSafe handpiece to deliver radiofrequency energy into the skin. Heated energy stimulates the body’s natural collagen production for firmer, tighter skin. Your procedure at DWH Med Spa will be completely comfortable and has been compared to a warm massage. The duration of your treatment process will depend on the the size of the treatment area, but will typically take between 45 and 60 minutes to complete. After your treatment with Pelleve, you might experience some redness or swelling due to the heat transmitted from the handpiece, but this is mild and should resolve in a few hours. You are free to return home and get back to regular activities immediately after treatment with no downtime.

Results

After treatment with Pelleve, you can experience immediate results with smooth, glowing skin. Within the next few weeks, further results will become noticeable as your body’s healing process begins and new collagen is produced. The collagen rebuilding process can continue for months after treatment. To optimize the results of Pelleve treatment, three to five treatment sessions are recommended, with four weeks in between.

Fractional Laser

Life brings about many changes.  From wrinkles and sunspots, to scars and stretch marks, fractional laser treatments can help reverse the changes that have occurred over time.  Fractional laser treatments are a non-surgical solution for effectively smoothing the appearance of the skin.

What is Fractional Laser Treatment?

Using the latest technology in skin resurfacing, fractional lasers go beyond the surface of the skin to promote collagen production and rapid healing. Along with smoothing lines and wrinkles, fractional laser treatments can also improve acne scars, c-section scars, and sun damage.

How is Fractional Laser Treatment Done?

Your fractional laser treatment at DWH Med Spa will require a topical anesthetic for your comfort during the procedure. You will also be given goggles to protect your eyes from the laser being used. The laser is then passed over the treatment area, sending pulses to the skin. Repeated passing might be required for more severe areas. As the laser passes over the skin, you may feel some stinging and burning. With fractional laser treatment, there is very little bleeding or scabbing. During your treatment process with fractional laser treatment, damaged skin is removed while healthy skin is preserved to aid in healing and regeneration. The process usually takes about 20-45 minutes depending on the size of the area you’re having treated. When your procedure is complete, your skin will be cleaned and dressed to keep it protected while it heals. While you can experience dramatic results after just one treatment, future treatments can help to maintain your results.

Results

After your fractional laser treatment at DWH Med Spa, you might experience redness, swelling, and tenderness in the treated area for the first few days. Many patients compare this to a sunburn. Your new skin will be pink at first and return to your natural skin color after a week or two. Be sure to follow the care instructions provided to you to ensure proper healing and effective results. After the healing process, you will notice tightened skin and a smoother complexion. Fine lines and wrinkles will be reduced, and you can enjoy a more youthful and confident appearance.

Microneedling

Lines and wrinkles in the face are a natural result of aging, but with microneedling, we can soften their appearance to take years off your face or even help prevent them from happening. When creams and topical solutions fail to give the results you need, consider microneedling for noticeable improvements that go beyond the surface of your skin. Best of all, it is safe and effective for all skin types.

What is Microneedling

Although it may sound intimidating, microneedling is a more natural, safe, and effective non-surgical treatment option for facial rejuvenation, scar reduction, and stretch mark improvement. Microneedling treatment involves micropuncturing the skin to promote healing and produce firmer, tighter skin to reduce the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and scarring. Unlike other treatments involving needles, microneedling delivers no foreign substance into the treatment site.

How is Microneedling Treatment Done?

Microneedling treatment does not require medication, but a topical anesthetic will be put on the skin to numb the area and ensure your comfort. A hydrating and collagen-stimulating serum is then applied to the skin. At DWH Med Spa, we use a medical grade microneedling pen containing very fine needles. During treatment, these needles lightly puncture the skin at 2mm deep to promote healing and help your skin absorb the serum. After your treatment, serum is again applied to the skin to add hydration and protection for healing.

Results

After your microneedling treatment, you may notice some mild swelling and redness that should diminish over the course of a few days. Many patients report discomfort levels similar to a sunburn. You should avoid wearing makeup for the rest of the day and stay out of the sun, but all other normal activities can be resumed immediately.

As part of the healing process, new collagen and elastin are produced to form skin that is tighter and firmer. Depending on your area being treated, it is common for four to six sessions, spaced a month apart, for optimal results and maintenance. With microneedling, you can delay or reverse the aging process to keep your skin looking young and healthy with improved texture, reduced wrinkles, and minimize  acne scars.
