You know the feeling. Jiggly skin around the tummy, inner thighs, and upper arms, that doesn’t go away on its own, even with the help of a trainer, a slew of elliptical machines and crunches for firming and toning.
The NEW PelleFirm System from Ellman International may be just the ticket. It is CE Marked for body skin tightening and cellulite reduction and has received FDA clearance for tissue heating and the temporary reduction in the appearance of cellulite. Building on the global popularity of Pelleve Wrinkle Reduction System, Ellman is now entering the body category.
The PelleFirm System provides a non-invasive, pain free RF treatment for the body, resulting in firmer skin and improvement in dimples and cellulite. Their expertise in radiofrequency energy is based on their success with skin tightening with Pellevé® that led to the development of PelleFirm. The system is comprised of 2 large diameter handpieces sized for the body that elevate tissue temperature up to 45 degrees Celsius, plus mechanical massage heads for treating dimples and cellulite. Like Pellevé, a PelleFirm RF Body Treatment system delivers visible results quickly, without the pain and recovery time of some body treatments. It is an ideal non-invasive treatment for the classic problem zones including the tummy, upper arms, buttocks, knees, and thighs. A series of 3 or more treatments is typically recommended, with maintenance as needed.
Ellman has been working with RF expert physicians in Europe and Latin America to develop PelleFirm as a non-invasive body solution. The PelleFirm handpieces are powered by the same Pellevé S5 RF Generator as the Pellevé Wrinkle Reduction handpieces for facial skin tightening. With two different size handpieces, PelleFirm was designed to address almost every area of the body.
Dermatologist Josephine Hernandez, MD, in Costa Rica has been working with Pellefirm in her clinic; “Many of my patients request treatment for sagging skin in their arms, hands, abdomen, thighs and gluteal area. The results with the PelleFirm system are outstanding and superior to any of the many body contouring or skin tightening devices we have used in our practice. I have seen PelleFirm results in as little as a few treatments.”
Expect to see Pellefirm roll out in the US over the the next few months. Visit pelleve.com for more info and to find a Pellefirm provider.
