What is Pellevé Wrinkle Reduction?
We are pleased to announce a noninvasive, nonsurgical, painfree, office-based procedure for softening wrinkles and tightening skin, available in our Bridgewater office. The Pellevé uses radiofrequency to gently heat the layer beneath the skins’ surface, which then prompts the body to generate a healing response. This healing response results in more youthful appearing skin. There is no downtime, pain, swelling or redness after treatments.
Treatment times depend on the body part being treated, and ranges from 20-45min per treatment. Most people need 1 treatment for each decade of life per body area, spaced 1 month apart. Example, a 35yr old would need 3 treatments, a 45yr old would need 4 treatments, and a 50yr old would need 5 treatments. Full treatment results need 3-9 months to become apparent, depending on the individual’s age. As the aging process continues, once/year touchups may be necessary to maintain results.
Please note: This is classified as a cosmetic treatment and is not covered by insurance. Click here for prices.
How is the Icon™ Aesthetic System used for wrinkle reduction?
The Icon™ Aesthetic System stimulates the regeneration of new skin by delivering fractional laser energy to a targeted treatment area. While Pellevé specifically focuses on wrinkle reduction and skin firming, the Icon™ is a more versatile piece of technology that can also be used for:
- Hair removal
- Stretch mark removal
- Scar removal
- Wrinkle reduction
Your provider at Horizons Health & Wellness will carefully review your skin and aesthetic goals during a consultation. From there, she will recommend Pellevé or Icon™ for optimal results.
