Dr. Kauvar is pleased to be one of the first dermatologists in the New York area to offer an exceptional new procedure named Pellevé (pronounced pel-lu-vey).
Pellevé is a technology that safely and effectively delivers skin tightening, smoothing and firming via a series of non-invasive, painless procedures with no downtime and immediate and long-term results. The best results are achieved in mildly to moderately wrinkled, dull and/or lax skin, yielding firmer, tighter and more glowing skin using radiofrequency energy. This technology heats the deeps layers of the skin just enough to stimulate collagen changes without damaging the top layer of epidermis. Pellevé firms the skin around the eyes (crows feet, under eye wrinkles and lax skin), cheeks, jowls, neck, lines on the forehead, nasolabial folds, sagging skin under the chin, wrinkles around the mouth, and excess skin on the upper eyelid.
Pellevé results can last up to six months and it can be used on all skin types including tanned skin.
