Pelleve is a skin treatment which reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This procedure uses radio frequency to warm the skin, triggering collagen production and tightening the skin. Pelleve takes advantage of the body’s natural reactions to radio frequency to ensure the skin continues producing new collagen months after treatment.
Pelleve’s machine also allows your dermatologist to perform the PelleFirm procedure, which uses the same radio frequencies to warm the skin, reducing the appearance of cellulite. The treatment stimulates blood flow to smooth and tighten the skin.
Sclerotherapy focuses on treating varicose and spider veins. Your dermatologist will inject the vein with a solution, causing it to collapse. Eventually, the appearance of the collapsed vein begins to fade and, over time, is no longer visible. The procedure takes only about a half an hour and is safe and effective with minimal downtime afterward.
