Forget injections or surgery – you can take years off your face with a treatment that has no pain or downtime but offers visible results: Pellevé Wrinkle Reduction System.

The radiofrequency treatment, which feels like a warm massage, takes less than an hour and stimulates collagen growth with plumping effects you can see as soon as 24-48 hours after treatment. After six months, once collagen has time to build, results get even better: Wrinkles, fine lines and crow’s feet are visibly reduced and replaced with a smoother looking, glowing complexion.

Pellevé can be used on the entire face, or targeted to areas that need a little boost, such as the jawline and eye area. And it’s safe to do with virtually no restrictions before or after the treatment. Doctors recommend initially getting three to four treatments about a month apart, with quarterly treatments as an optional add-on to maintain the collagen-boosting effects.

“Collagen breaks down over time as the sun and natural aging process continue to take their toll,” explains laser provider Erin DeVita of Chicago’s Dermatology + Aesthetics. The ongoing treatments take less time than a typical facial but offer greater results.

Cathy Hohner, 63, first tried Pellevé two years ago and continues to get treatments regularly. “I love Pellevé because it’s so easy,” says Hohner, a patient at Dr. Amy Taub’s practice in Glencoe. “It’s not invasive, and there are no side effects. It’s even enjoyable and it’s very efficient at what it’s supposed to do. You look much more rested; I think your eyes are what look the most different, but you also see it on the rest of the face, too.” Read full article.
