Pelleve Effective for Slight Sagging & Wrinkling in Face
I'm a Cosmetic Oculofacial (Speciaizing in Eyelid and Facelift Surgery) Plastic Surgeon practicing for 15 years with offices in Manhattan's Upper Eastside. In my practice, I use Pelleve for skin tighening of the face and neck, to reduce wrinkles and provide smoother skin, as well as increase collagen production over time. The technology with Pelleve appears not to affect the fat under the skin which is important to maintain a smooth contour. Pelleve is very effective and works for my patients who are not quite ready for a facelift. A chemical peel effectively reduces fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, scarring, acne and improve the overall texture and tone of your skin.
Pelleve and Chemical Peels
In our practice, we prefer Pelleve for wrinkles and sagging skin. There is absolutely ZERO downtime and, in fact, many patients request this treatment before a big event for the glow that they have afterward. If patients also have sundamage or inconsistent skin texture, we will recommend light chemical peels to enhance results.
