PelleFirm new body skin tightening system from Pellevé the skin tightening experts

Firm offer: tightens skin on the body and reduces cellulite

pelleFirmLogoThe FDA-approved PelleFirm system provides a non-invasive, pain free treatment for the tightening the skin on the body, resulting in a firmer, more toned appearance and a reduction in the appearance of cellulite.

PelleFirm is ideal for treating skin around the abdomen which has become lax as a result of ageing or childbirth, and also tackles problem areas including flabby, wrinkled and loose skin on the upper arms, neck, buttocks and thighs. It works on any skin type and well as tightening the skin,

pelleFirm-techPelleFirm also works to reduce the dimpled appearance of cellulite because of its unique massage function. Small spheres on the device’s massage head work gently but effectively on the skin and encourage movement of underlying fluids into areas where they can be naturally excreted via the body’s lymphatic system.

Firm favourite: face tightening technology honed to treat the body

PelleFirm comes from the same stable as the much vaunted Pellevé which doctors have been using to tone the face since 2010. It works on the skin using a combination of Radio Frequency (RF) energy and mechanical massage for deep tissue heating. PelleFirm’s advanced radiofrequency technology emits energy in the form of electromagnetic waves to heat skin tissue without damaging the skin’s epidermis. The heat induces collagen denaturation and collagen contraction. This protein stimulation causes new collagen and elastin formation and production in the dermis and existing bands of collagen tighten in fatty areas. The result is the tightening of the epidermis and a noticeable improvement in skin quality and texture.

The device’s electrode tips deliver RF energy to gently heat the skin up to 45 degrees Celsius. Treatment time depends on the body part being treated, but generally PelleFirm can heat a 10×10 cm area on the abdomen to over 40 degrees Celsius in just 2-3 minutes. Unlike the face, the thicker skin on the body is well insulated so it tends to hold onto the heat more efficiently. The best tissue heating results are achieved by keeping the skin at the target temperature for around 5 minutes per area treated. The full abdomen can take 25-40 minutes, similar to the treatment time required for the face.

Firm advice:

Because the PelleFirm hand piece is small and lightweight it is also a very versatile treatment which can be used across any area of the body, and is able to access all its contours. While the treatment is commonly used to provide skin tightening, reduce skin laxity and wrinkles and a produces a temporary reduction in the appearance of cellulite, it can also be used for the treatment of certain medical conditions such as relief of pain, muscle spasms, and to increase circulation.


PelleFirm can only be carried out in clinic, and doctors recommend a short course of treatments for the best results; reporting that after 4-6 treatments every two weeks patients show significant improvement in problem areas.

The painless treatment can be likened to the sensation of a warm massage and requires no downtime, so daily activities can be resumed immediately.
