PelleFirm Skin Tightening for the Body
PelleFirm™ is an FDA approved procedure shown to tighten the skin on the body with side benefits of cellulite improvement.
Heat > Collagen Action
This radio frequency device painlessly heats skin tissue to a collagen-changing 45 degrees Celsius. At this temperature (equivalent to 113 Fahrenheit), the body’s typical response is one of collagen tightening and new collagen production.
Although the final effects occur over a series of treatments, you’ll likely see tighter skin right away while increasing firmness occurs over time.

Why PelleFirm™ Instead of Other Technologies?
PelleFirm is not a “one-time” procedure and therefore it doesn’t require aggressive levels of energy. This allows lower levels of treatment energy that are cumulatively effective and rather than hurt, it feels like a nice warm massage. Over 4-6 sessions, your body will experience a smoothing and tightening effect.
PelleFirm is the body technology based upon the very successful Pelleve “wrinkle wand” technology for the face.
