Introducing New PelleFirm™ Body Skin Tightening System

http://www.aestheticmedicallasers.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/10/pellefirm-banner.pngEllman International, which is known for the Pellevé Wrinkle Reduction System for facial skin tightening, is now introducing a further advancement of that system called PelleFirm™.  This innovation uses the same non-invasive and radiofrequency-based, pain-free technology to tighten skin and improve the appearance of cellulite in almost any area of the body on all skin types.

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.

celluliteFor treatment of areas with cellulite, this heating combines with the massage heads to mechanically improve lymphatic drainage to the treated area.  In other words, the cellulite areas become less dimpled and smoother.

While the FDA has recently approved this new PelleFirm™ system, other countries have been using it for some time.  International reports have noted improved appearance in the neck, abdomen, buttocks, knees and thighs.  A series of 3 treatments is recommended on average, although more may be needed depending on the area of the body and its baseline appearance.

Of course, maintenance treatments will probably be needed.  As I frequently say with any aesthetic treatment, I can turn back the clock, but I can’t stop the clock!

I see PelleFirm™ as being 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/or VASERshape body contouring, and want that skin tightened without the fat.

Even when a treatment is “hot off the presses” in terms of FDA approval, it takes many clinicians some time to acquire it for their patients.  However, we at Maine Laser Skin Care have the new handpieces already, and Denise is ready to go!

I am really excited to add this new technological advancement of our menu of services, and to offer hope for women who have been pining to treat these troubled body areas for years in particular.  Based on the worldwide and local popularity of the Pellevé facial wrinkle reduction system, I am looking forward to improving further appearance of the body, especially in those people who are left with loose skin after dieting and training to firm and tone muscle.

Give us a call at 207-873-2158 to book a free consultation and/or an appointment for PelleFirm™.  As always, I am committed to bringing cutting-edge aesthetic technologies to Maine and offering them to you when available.
