Pellevé is a revolutionary treatment that safely and effectively reduces facial wrinkles without surgery. Master aesthetician Allison McElroy and Director of Skin Care Denise Kail, RN, use the anti-aging treatment at our Virginia Beach practice to refresh your appearance with no downtime. The Pellevé system is approved by the FDA, and the treatment can be performed in about an hour. Once finished, you can reapply your makeup and continue with your daily activities.

Pellevé uses radiofrequency to gently deliver energy deep into the skin, where the skin and fat layer meet. The heat produced modifies existing collagen and stimulates the production of new collagen over time. Collagen is a part of the connective tissue in the skin that helps in firmness and suppleness. Firmer, tighter skin can continue to improve over 6 months as the new collagen continues to grow. Although the skin is heated during the treatment, it is not painful and requires no medications or anesthesia. Some patients say it is like a warm massage.
Most patients can see results immediately after their first treatment. However, a series of 3 to 5 treatments administered at 1-month intervals is recommended for optimal results. Although the results with Pellevé are not as dramatic or lasting as facelift surgery, Virginia Beach residents who aren't ready for surgery can get the treatment as an excellent non-surgical alternative.
