Our office provides services utilizing radio frequency technology, which consists of thermal treatment of any part of the skin leading to collagen contraction without any damage to the epidermis. This technology involves heating of the subcutaneous skin up to 42 F for about 30 min. Production of new collagen fibers leads to a firmer and tighter epidermis providing better skin contouring. Pelleve’s technology emits radio frequency energy in the form of electromagnetic waves, ultimately creating a new stronger collagen at the level of dermis. This process tightens the epidermis. In addition to collagen, a new protein is produced which in conjunction with collagen results in a much former and tighter skin. This technology enables tightening of genital areas such as labia majora, a structure which loses its elasticity with age and decrease in estrogen level.
Whole Body Tightening & Cellulite Reduction
Recent introduction of the PelleFirm® System provides a new non-invasive, pain free RF treatment for the body, leading to smoother skin and temporary improvement in the appearance of cellulite. PelleFirm uses two new, large diameter handpieces designed specifically to the larger parts of the body such as the abdomen, arms, buttocks and thighs. Similar to Pelleve, the new PelleFirm consists of delivery of heat to the dermis, creating a new fibers of collagen and ultimately tightening of the epidermis. In addition, it may temporarily reduce the appearance of cellulite, which was approved by the FDA 510 (K).
This video presents the technique used for skin tightening by Ellman Pelleve S5 applying radio frequency energy. Essentially three treatments are recommended for optimal results, for 30-45 min it is possible to see results after one treatment session. The same technology is used for tightening of labia majora, which elasticity is lost secondary to aging or lack of estrogen .
