Refresh your skin and combat cellulite with PelleFirm® Skin Tightening.
While no one may want to admit it cellulite happens to more people than you might think. In fact, it’s believed that about 90 percent of women have it to some degree. If you are looking for a way to hide cellulite then it’s time to talk to your Brookline dermatologist, Dr. Alan Rockoff about our new PelleFirm® System.
What is the PelleFirm® System?
This painless, non-invasive cosmetic treatment is FDA-approved to reduce the appearance of cellulite, as well as smooth and tighten the skin to also reduce the look of wrinkles.
How does PelleFirm® work?
PelleFirm uses two handheld devices that heat up the tissue within certain regions of the body to stimulate the production of collagen, which increases the elasticity and tightness of the skin.
How many sessions will I need?
This treatment does not deliver high radiofrequency levels to the body, so this isn’t a one-time treatment. This lower level of treatment allows your Brookline dermatologist to treat your skin without discomfort. The most you will feel is a warming sensation during your session.
Many patients require between four to six treatments; however, you will start to notice changes in the tone and firmness of your skin almost immediately. One session only takes about 30 minutes to complete and patients can return to their regular activities after treatment.
Who should consider getting PelleFirm®?
For patients experiencing sagging skin anywhere on their body including their thighs, arms or abdomen, the PelleFirm® System can help to re-contour and tighten the skin in these areas. This treatment is particularly ideal for those between the ages of 30 to 65 years old. It’s also great for reviving skin post-pregnancy and for treating sagging, loose skin after liposuction.
If you want to reduce the look of cellulite and increase skin firmness, then it’s time to talk to your Brookline dermatologist about whether PelleFirm® is right for you.
How long will my results last?
After getting PelleFirm, you will continue to see an improvement in your skin’s appearance for up to six months after treatment. This is due to the increase in collagen production.
