What is Radiofrequency Skin Tightening?

As we age, our body slows the production of collagen, causing our skin to lose elasticity, which can result in fine lines and wrinkles or even loose, sagging skin. Radiofrequency skin tightening is a noninvasive solution to combat signs of aging that appear over time. At Brandon Plastic Surgery, we use the Pelleve system to create natural looking, beautiful results.

Pelleve is safe and effective. The treatment is typically performed on the difficult fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and lips, but can also be used to treat the jowls and neck. The resulting firmer, smoother skin can be seen immediately, and these effects are long-lasting.


What is Pelleve?

Pelleve is a radio-frequency (RF) skin-tightening procedure to help smooth and tighten your complexion. During treatment, a small handpiece will be moved along the treatment area, delivering the radiofrequency energy into the skin. Most patients describe the sensation as similar to a hot stone massage.

Using radiofrequency energy, Pelleve gently warms the skin deep beneath the surface to stimulate collagen and elastin production in the skin. In addition, the existing collagen contracts and tightens, allowing for immediate results even before new collagen has formed. A treatment takes anywhere from 45-60 minutes to complete, and a series of treatments is needed to see optimal results.


Pelleve can be used to treat:

  • Nasolabial folds
  • Forehead lines
  • Loose skin around the eye
  • Vertical lines between the eyebrows
  • Crow’s feet
  • Wrinkles near the mouth



Following your Pelleve treatment, you can expect many improvements to your skin. About 1-3 days following treatment, you will notice a “post-treatment glow.” About 4-15 days after, collagen will begin to rebuild. 15 days after, the formal remodeling process will occur and collagen regrowth will continue for months! To maintain your results and protect your skin, be sure to avoid excess sun exposure and wear SPF. Results from the treatment typically last about six months.


Because Pelleve is completely nonsurgical, there is no downtime required! You can return to normal activities as soon after treatment as you wish. Patients may have slight redness following treatment, which should subside quickly.

Dr. Shienbaum and his staff are amazing and so caring! I was so pleased with my results and how quickly I felt back to normal! Would recommend to anyone!”
