PELLEVé SKIN TIGHTENING
Reinvigorate your youthful glow with the firming effects of skin tightening treatments. The Lime Tree Clinic are dedicated to offering skin tightening and non-surgical treatments that put safety and efficacy first. Our cosmetic injector, Eunah Seo, brings a wealth of knowledge in Korean natural facial rejuvenation practices to restore your skin’s elasticity with innovative technology. Skin tightening with Pellevé is a non-invasive, painless, innovative treatment that uses radiofrequency technology to tighten and firm the skin to minimise the appearance of sagging skin and wrinkles, leaving your skin refreshed and youthful.
How does the Pellevé skin tightening treatment work?
Essentially, Pellevé works by delivering gradual energy to the skin using advanced radiofrequency technology, causing heat to build in the deep layer of the skin. As a result, the collagen cells contract and tighten similar to a spring being released from a stretch position. This stimulates the production of new collagen and skin sag is significantly reduced or eliminated. The result is an improvement in skin tightness and wrinkles that you can see and feel.
Is Pellevé safe?
Pellevé is completely safe when performed by a qualified cosmetic practitioner. It is a TGA approved radiofrequency device for skin tightening, meaning that it is safe to use and yields impressive results with minimal complications.
Additionally, Pellevé is suitable for men and women of all skin types. Unlike some laser treatments, Pellevé is gentle and safe to use all year round, regardless of summer-tanned skin.
What are the treatment areas for Pellevé Skin Tightening?
Pellevé is commonly used for full face and neck treatment to address skin ageing conditions such as wrinkles and sagging skin. In addition to that, it can be used on other parts of the body such as the back of the hands, décolletage, arms and thighs to address loose or cellulitic skin.
A popular treatment is to have the under-eye area treated alone to reduce the appearance of dark circles or to have the crow’s feet area treated to reduce wrinkles. These delicate areas around the eyes are often difficult to treat using other methods.
When can I see the treatment results and how long will it last for?
Results can be seen immediately and will continue to improve for the next 90 days. Depending on individual preference and the location of treatment, we usually recommend clients to undergo 3 treatments 4 weeks apart to stimulate the collagen rebuilding process for long lasting results. Results can last up to 12 months. Our qualified cosmetic practitioner will recommend the right number of treatments for you.
Because Pellevé is non-invasive and has no downtime, it is also often done before important events as an additional booster.
What is the procedure for Pellevé skin tightening?
The Pellevé procedure takes as little as 15 minutes for the eye treatment and up to 60 minutes for a full facial treatment. The procedure is painless, requiring no local anaesthesia and has no downtime.
The procedure starts with a deep clean to remove your make up and moisturisers. A conducting plate is then attached to your back to guide the radiofrequency energy to the treatment areas.
Next, we apply a gel on the skin to help the handpiece gliding easily and smoothly over your skin.
Our cosmetic practitioner uses the Pellevé handpiece with a gold-plated tip, in a circular motion, to heat up the surface of your skin to about 40°c. Deeper skin levels will reach 60°c and the skin will be intensely stimulated to produce collagen. Whilst the temperature is carefully monitored, you can describe the depth of heat sensation to our cosmetic practitioner, who will adjust accordingly to ensure the best possible results. This is repeated in all of the treatment areas until a uniform result has been achieved. The Pellevé treatment ends with a premium skin serum that further assists to firm your skin.
