Pellevé treatment part 2

My second Pellevé treatment

Is a Solution for:
Sagging Skin
Reviewed by Marta January 26, 2011 17 Comments

I have just had the second of my  two-part Pellevé treatment. The first was about a month ago and that very evening I was stunned when my husband remarked that my face looked a lot fuller and asked what I’d been doing. Those results were short-lived (a couple of days) and predictably so as results are not supposed to show up for a couple of months when new collagen is formed.

Pellevé Wrinkle Reduction System is a non-invasive treatment that uses high frequency radiowave technology. (You can read more about it and my first session). It is perfectly comfortable, although the skin does get very hot (hence that initial plumping effect). Carissa McCormack at Dr Z. Paul Lorenc, who performed my treatments, likes to get the temperatures to 41°C to achieve the “denaturation” of the collagen.

She generally finds that this is easier to achieve at the second session, when clients seem to bear slightly more heat – probably as a result of just knowing what’s happening (although I dared to hope that my skin is already a little thicker).

As I already mentioned, I’ll have to wait at least another month before I am likely to see results. So I’ll be back with my verdict on Pellevé around the end of February.

NB: Both my treatments were courtesy of the generous and very competent Carissa McCormack.

Read on for the final verdict.

    This seems like a good resource, but when a person is not paying for the services or products they are reviewing, don't you think that skews the result/review?

    Hi Debbie, I am working on a new device. I should be able to announce it by the end of the month. I just don't want to tempt providence by saying too much too soon. Hang in there, we are very close and its pretty exciting.

    I am so anxious to hear what this is. I am just a keystroke away from ordering a ReFa or Tripolar Pose!!!! But want to hear what your announcement is. Hate that when you buy something and then something better comes down the pike!!! I need something for skin tightening!

    Hi Debbie, watch this space. I hope to have something to announce in a few weeks.

    What is the "home radiofrequency" device that you have? Can it be purchased?
