Pellevé™ for Wrinkles at Northwest Indiana Eye & Laser Center-Valparaiso & Knox, IN

By Scott Buck, M.D.

At Northwest Indiana Eye & Laser Center Scott Buck, M.D. can help you look your best with the Pellevé™ Wrinkle Reduction System. The Pellevé™ Wrinkle Reduction System is a safe and effective non-surgical way of achieving a more youthful look. Pellevé™ uses radiofrequency technology to gently heat the deep soft tissue under the skin and to promote skin tightening and wrinkle reduction. Using the Pellevé™ Wrinkle Reduction System advanced radio wave technology causes your own collagen to be disrupted- then stimulated to contract without causing any damage to the outer layers of the skin. As the collagen breaks down it generates new, healthy collagen that is tighter than the original collagen leading to firmer, younger looking skin. Since the heat is absorbed by the underlying tissue rather than the skin itself, there is no damage to the skin and no resulting burns, blisters or peeling.

The procedure is relatively painless and many patients equate it to receiving a warm massage. No anesthetic is needed and there is no recovery time. Some patients experience some redness, but this usually resolves in 20-30 minutes and rarely longer than 24 hours, making this procedure ideal for patients who do not want a procedure that is going to interfere with their busy schedule. A full face procedure can take anywhere from 45-75 minutes and patients can apply makeup and return to normal activity immediately afterwards.

The Pellevé™ Wrinkle Reduction System is best suited for patients with mild-moderate wrinkles who are looking for a way to achieve firmer, tighter, more youthful looking skin without surgery. The results can last up to 6 months with a single treatment-however studies have shown that a significant percentage of people still saw improvement one year after a single treatment. The recommended protocol is to have 3 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart for optimal correction. Pellevé™ also works well in combination with injectables such as BOTOX® Cosmetic and gel fillers like Restylane®.

The best way to find out if you are a good candidate for Pellevé™ wrinkle reduction is to schedule a free aesthetic consultation so that we can determine if Pellevé™ is appropriate for you. Depending on your areas of concern, the Scott Buck, M.D. at Northwest Indiana Eye & Laser Center will review the risks and benefits with you and help you to decide whether the Pellevé™ Wrinkle Reduction System will help you achieve the best possible results.
