The first time I went for a Pelleve treatment with Dr Prasad, I was anxious that it would be painful. I’m just not a “no pain, no gain” type of person. I was delighted that Pelleve was a very comfortable, even relaxing procedure– and was even more pleased with the improvements I could see. This time I was pretty mellow when I went to my second Pelleve appointment. It was just as painless and I saw even more improvement. In the pair of photos above, the profile on the left was before any treatment and the profile on the right was just after my second Pelleve treatment. My cheeks and chin are clearly firmer and less flabby. Its not nearly as extensive a change as I would see with a surgical lift, but I don’t want to go there. What you can also see is that my nose does not droop down as much. It turns out that the loss of collagen in the face means it cannot support the facial features and the nose looks longer. When the existing collagen is tightened, the nose is returns to a more youthful position. Sweet!
Pelleve does not affect the surface of the skin, so I didn’t have to interrupt my Retin A useage. Its also one of the safest anti-aging tools for women of color. You can do Pelleve in the afternoon and go back to work or out to dinner and look beautiful. Dr Prasad often does IPL for the surface of the skin and Pelleve for firming facial contours in the same visit.
This anti-aging tool is a beauty junkie’s ideal treatment– safe, effective, quick, immediate results and painless. It is pricy, but unlike too many overpriced creams and serums, you actually get the results you are paying for.
