The Pellevé Experience

You can feel the Pellevé difference. The Pellevé treatment is virtually painless and generally quite pleasurable, unlike many other energy based procedures. It is a very comfortable skin tightening treatment that takes less than an hour. You can go back to work and resume your normal routine right away, and no one will know you have had anything done. You will appear more radiant!

Pleasant, comfortable treatment. Immediate and lasting improvement.

If you’re wondering how you can refresh your appearance without surgery, the Pellevé Wrinkle Reduction System may be right for you. The Pellevé System safely and effectively treats facial wrinkles with virtually no pain and no downtime. In fact, patients who have had a Pellevé treatment say it feels like a warm facial massage.

The Pellevé treatment can:

• Be performed in one of the Maine Laser Skin Care offices in less than an hour
• Create visible results that start to be noticeable right away
• Provide results that last

The Pellevé System offers a different type of experience; a more pleasant and more natural one, with results you can feel good about.

The Pellevé System delivers constant, gradual radiofrequency energy deeply into the skin, causing heat to build up where the skin and fat layer meet. The increasing heat modifies the collagen bundles deep in the skin, causing contraction and stimulating the growth of new collagen over time. The result: firmer, tighter younger looking skin.

Safety of Pellevé

Is the Pellevé treatment safe?

Clinical studies have proven that the Pellevé treatment is a safe and effective way to reduce wrinkles without surgery. The side effects and discomfort are minimal, and no drugs or anesthetics are used during the procedure.

Is the Pellevé System FDA cleared?

Yes, in 2009, Ellman received FDA clearance for the Pellevé System for the treatment of mild to moderate facial wrinkles.

During Pellevé

How long does a Pellevé treatment take?

Each treatment will be from 30 – 60 minutes depending on the number of areas being treated at one time.

What do I need to do before having a treatment?

There is generally no preparation required before having a Pellevé treatment but please arrive well hydrated. Ask Dr. Burke if you should discontinue certain topical products or medications.

How is the treatment performed?

First, a conductive gel will be applied to the areas to be treated. Patients say they feel a deep warming sensation when the Pellevéhandpiece is applied to your skin. You will act as a guide to describe the depth of the sensation as Dr. Burke moves the handpiece gently across the treated areas.

Is the treatment painful?

No. Unlike other skin tightening systems, a Pellevé treatment does not require anesthesia. A Pellevé treatment is virtually painless and in fact, patients comment that it feels like a warm massage.

After Pellevé

What can I expect after a treatment?

There is no recovery time needed after a Pellevé treatment. You may be slightly pink with mild swelling for a few hours, you can wear makeup right away and resume normal activities, so it fits easily into busy schedules

What will I need to do after a treatment?

One of the staff members at Maine Laser Skin Care will instruct you to wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30. This protection will prevent future photo damage and maintain the results of your Pellevé treatment.

How soon will I see improvement?

In most cases you will see a visible tightening and lifting effect immediately after one session. Your skin will feel firmer and smoother as the texture and tone improves.

How long do the results last?

The overall result of a Pellevé treatment is a noticeable improvement in skin quality and appearance with minimal side effects and no recovery time. Results continue to improve for six months.

How many treatments are needed?

Many people see results immediately after just one treatment. For many patients, a series of three treatments spaced about one month apart may be recommended for optimal improvement. Additional treatments may be undertaken at any time for long term maintenance.

Can a Pellevé treatment be combined with other cosmetic treatments?

We here at Maine Laser Skin Care can combine Pellevé treatments with other cosmetic treatments such as Botox and Juvederm or other dermal fillers. Only Maine Laser Skin Care can recommend the best treatment plan for you, based on your skin type, age, and your cosmetic goals.

Lasting Effects

The wrinkle reduction and skin firming effects of the Pellevé treatment will continue to improve for at least six months as your skin produces new collagen. Over time, Pellevé continues to work, improving your skin texture and tone. In a clinical study, after one treatment, 9 out of 10 patients experienced a significant benefit. At 6 months, almost 90% of those patients still had a lasting effect.


Introducing PelleFirm™

This system advancement involves two new larger-diameter handpieces that are sized for areas of the body beyond the face.  The increased surface area of the handpiece allows for an elevated tissue temperature up to 45° Celsius.

PelleFirm™ is extremely helpful to those with loose skin in troublesome areas such as the neck and upper arms.  This treatment will also help those who have loose skin after weight loss, and want that skin tightened without the fat.
