• How Pellevé™ Can Help You Maintain Your Youthful Appearance

    on May 15th, 2019

Even if you do all the right things to take care of your skin use sun protection and plenty of moisturizer, eat a healthy diet, never smoke, and stay well-hydrated your face eventually reflects the passage of time. Your genes also play a role in how your face will age, as do gravity and the simple, repetitive act of making facial expressions. Sooner or later, though, wrinkles and loose skin make an unwelcome appearance on all our faces.  

You may be advancing in years, but your face doesn’t have to give that secret away. Dr. Allen Flood has helped countless patients refresh their skin with the help of Pellevé™.

Why consider PellevéTM?

Pellevé™ is the ideal solution if you’re looking for a facial treatment that offers a multitude of benefits:

How does Pellevé™ work?

Pellevé™ treatments minimize the damage your skin has sustained through time in the sun, neglect, and simply getting older. It reduces the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and overall facial sagginess by employing radiofrequency (RF) waves. These RF waves supply heat to the skin’s deep layers, which spurs the growth of collagen. Collagen is a structural protein that loses its elasticity over time. Its new growth plays a starring role in triggering your skin to revitalize itself.

How does Dr. Flood administer a Pellevé™ treatment? Is it painful?

The procedure itself is very simple. Dr. Flood uses a small handheld tool to deliver the RF waves in whichever area of your face, neck, or chest you’d like to focus on treating. On average, you can expect the Pellevé treatment to last 30-60 minutes, depending on whether you’re addressing a small spot or a larger area. The best part about Pellevé™ has got to be the fact that it’s utterly painless! Though you may experience some slight redness because of the application of heat on your skin, it disappears quickly and in no way interferes with your busy life.

Dr. Flood and his team are here to make you look as fabulous as you feel!

We want to see you confident in your own skin again. Learn more about Pellevé’s many benefits by scheduling an initial consultation with Dr. Flood.
