Similar to the Pelleve treatment, Pellefirm uses a handheld device to help elevate tissue temperature up to around 113 degrees Farenheit. The heat, when coupled with mechanical massage heads, helps to improve the lymphatic drainage that causes cellulite. The heating and massaging actions also help to repair existing collagen and stimulate new, healthy collagen production. Each treatment session takes approximately 30 minutes and requires no special preparation. Patients achieve optimal results over a series of 4 to 6 sessions with additional periodic sessions to help maintain results. Pellefirm is FDA-approved to temporarily improve the dimpled appearance of cellulite as well as skin firmness. It is ideal for targeting stubborn problem areas on the abdomen, arms, thighs, & glutes.
Pellefirm is safe and effective for those men and women who wish to address cellulite and enjoy tighter skin. Pelleve may also benefit those patients who have received liposuction in the past and would like to address the loose, crepey skin that may have been left behind. Most patients see noticeable results after just one session and visible improvements with each subsequent session. After your initial 4 to 6 sessions, you can expect to enjoy your results for about 6 months with the occasional additional session to maintain these results.
