skin tightening device washington dcLoose, sagging skin is a natural part of aging as our skin produces less collagen and elastin. In the past, surgery may have been the only way to achieve tighter, smoother skin, but nowadays there are nonsurgical methods available that can produce great results. Pelleve is one of those treatments, are we are happy to be able to offer it at the MI Skin Dermatology Center in Washington, DC.

What is Pelleve?

Pelleve is a revolutionary nonsurgical, noninvasive skin tightening device. It uses radiofrequency, or RF, waves to heat and tighten the deep tissue under the surface of the skin. This heat causes stimulation of collagen and elastin production, which in turn results in smooth, younger-looking skin in the right candidate.

Pelleve is FDA approved for use on wrinkles and loose skin, and is a comfortable, painless, safe treatment for most patients when administered by an expert dermatologist such as Dr. Melda Isaac in Washington, DC. Pelleve can provide smoother and firmer skin on the face and neck after just one treatment, although three to four treatments are generally recommended for ideal results. Results for Pelleve vary between patients.
