RF Body Contouring – Cynosure Pellevé – Houston, TX

26 Services ( View All )

Overview

Though diet and exercise are an essential aspect of maintaining a fit and slim figure, sometimes it is not enough to reduce fat or bring back the vitality that can be missing in our skin. At GLO Laser & Med Spa in Houston, TX, radiofrequency (RF) body contouring is able to tighten the skin while reducing fat in problematic areas. We are proud to offer one of the most advanced RF body contouring systems, the Cynosure Pellevé. The Pellevé device is not a laser. It is a handpiece that delivers radiofrequency energy deep into the skin, which stimulates the production of collagen, and promotes fat reduction and skin tightening. Each handpiece is uniquely designed to treat precisely targeted areas. RF contouring offers Houston, TX patients the opportunity to tighten and reshape areas, such as the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, arms, jawline, and neck. To learn more, contact GLO Laser & Med Spa to schedule your private consultation.

Best Candidates

RF body contouring is best suited for men and women who already are at a healthy weight and find themselves needing "assistance" with those last few stubborn pounds. If you have isolated pockets of fat in areas that are resistant to diet and exercise and you wish to contour your body without plastic surgery, RF body contouring may be right for you. It can help eliminate fat and tighten mildly loose skin. This treatment cannot correct large areas of loose skin that are the result of the aging process and/or a major weight loss, but it works great for minimal contouring, mild to moderate sagging skin, and helping patients reach their final aesthetic goals. 

Procedure Techniques

At GLO Laser & Med Spa, we use the Cynosure Pellevé technology for nonsurgical body contouring, and the process is completed in a short session in one of our on-site treatment rooms. The skin being treated will be cleansed and marked so the appropriate treatment area can be precisely targeted. During your session, the device will be glided over the areas you wish to address while safely delivering RF energy deep into the tissue. Most of our patients report feeling comfortable and relaxed and most do not feel discomfort at all during the treatment. When your session has concluded, you will be able to resume your normal daily activities. The treated areas will remain slightly pink or red for the first few hours after your session.

What to Expect

Most patients will see results quickly following their treatment session. However, one of the benefits of RF body contouring is that the collagen production that is stimulated by the handpiece continues to work under the skin for weeks following your procedure. Therefore, your final results will typically be seen in about 3 – 4 months. Depending on the size of the area being treated and the desired outcome you wish to attain, your treatment plan may include several sessions spaced a few weeks apart. With the completion of a full series of treatments, you can expect to see slimmer, tighter results in your treatment areas.
