Pelleve TreatmentDiscover a new, unique way to achieve smoother skin and to reduce wrinkles.

Getting a more youthful appearance can happen and you don’t need surgery or invasive treatments to do it. If you want to smooth away lines and wrinkles and take years off your skin without the downtime then it’s time to talk to our Brookline and Andover, MA, dermatologists Dr. Alan Rockoff and Dr. Katherine Fening about our skin tightening treatment, Pelleve.

What is the Pelleve treatment?

Pelleve uses a device that delivers radiofrequency waves to the skin to safely heat up the tissue to restructure and stimulate the production of collagen, a protein that is crucial for skin firmness. The main goal of Pelleve is to provide smoother, tighter and firmer skin.

What are the benefits of this treatment?

As you may be able to gather already, Pelleve treatment provides a non-invasive and non-surgical way to improve the look and firmness of your skin without the side effects or a recovery period. Plus, there is less risk of bruising and no risk of scarring, unlike surgical cosmetic treatments. You’ll be able to return to your daily routine right after treatment.

Furthermore, treatment is completely painless. All you’ll feel during your treatment is a warming sensation, but this should not be uncomfortable or painful.

When will I notice results?

When you come in for your consultation our Brookline, MA, skin doctor will provide you with a treatment plan to determine how many sessions you will need. This will depend on the condition of your skin, as well as your age. Every couple of weeks we will perform Pelleve treatment until the desired results are achieved; however, most people will notice a change in the tightness of their skin after just one treatment. You may also choose to have Pelleve treatment in conjunction with Botox, dermal filler and other cosmetic treatments to enhance your appearance and take years of your skin.

Do you have questions about Pelleve treatment? Want to schedule a consultation with us to find out whether this skin tightening treatment is right for you? If so, it’s the perfect time to call The Rockoff Dermatology Center in Brookline and Andover, MA.

Age can make us wiser and calmer, but it can also bring with it unwanted effects like loss of elasticity in the skin, which leads to wrinkles skin tighteningand loosened areas. Fortunately, cosmetic treatments like skin tightening are offered at the Rockoff Dermatology Center in Brookline and Andover, Massachusetts. This non-surgical procedure uses your body's own processes to give you a more youthful appearance. Learn how Dr. Alan Rockoff and his staff use skin tightening to help their patients here.

What is skin tightening?

Like some other cosmetic procedures performed by your Brookline and Andover dermatologist, skin tightening uses heat technology to help smooth out wrinkles and fine lines and restore tautness to sagging skin. The difference is that this treatment uses radiofrequency energy instead of laser. The radiofrequency, or RF waves, stimulate the collagen underneath the skin to begin reproducing at a faster rate than before. The high-energy waves penetrate through the upper layer of skin, keeping those cells untouched by the heat. The result is toned, tightened skin that looks and feels young again!

What are the benefits of skin tightening?

Also called tissue tightening or collagen remodeling, skin tightening is non-invasive, which means that there are no cuts made or stitches needed. This eliminates the downtime and discomfort associated with facelifts and other plastic surgery procedures. Radio frequency is also a great alternative to laser treatments, especially for those patients who have tried laser procedures without satisfactory results.

How long will it take skin tightening to work?

The RF skin tightening appointment itself only takes approximately an hour. It may take several months, and several sessions with your Brookline and Andover dermatologist, before the stimulated collagen has completed its regrowth cycle and the results begin to show.
