If you are looking to address cellulite or stubborn fat, you may want to consider PelleFirm treatments at Cosmetic Enhancement Center of New England. We are proud to offer this and other non-surgical body contouring services to the residents of Portland and the nearby areas of Maine.
What is PelleFirm?
PelleFirm is a body contouring and skin tightening treatment that uses non-invasive radiofrequency energy to enhance the contours of the body. This treatment is most often used to reduce the appearance of cellulite, although it can also help reduce stubborn fat and tighten loose skin.
PelleFirm works by using radiofrequency energy, which stimulates collagen production in the skin. The gentle heating in combination with continued collagen production causes a gradual skin tightening effect, smoothing out cellulite and improving the figure. PelleFirm can be used on the following areas of the body:
How Much Does PelleFirm Cost?
The cost of your PelleFirm treatment at Cosmetic Enhancement Center of New England will depend on a number of factors. During your free consultation, we will discuss your treatment goals to determine the approach to your PelleFirm treatment that will work best for you.
Some patients may need multiple treatment sessions. We will consider these and other factors in order to provide you with the full cost of your treatment during your consultation. To make this and other services more affordable, we are proud to offer financing through CareCredit®.
What is the PelleFirm Treatment Like?
The PelleFirm treatment is non-surgical and non-invasive, so there is no anesthetic required. In fact, most patients find the treatment to be quite comfortable and often compare it to a warm massage. During treatment, a protective gel will be applied to the skin in the treatment area. Then, the PelleFirm handpiece will be applied to the skin as gentle radiofrequency energy is carefully delivered to the treatment area. This treatment takes approximately 30 minutes.
What Can I Expect After My PelleFirm Treatment?
There is no downtime after the PelleFirm treatment, so you can resume work and other normal activities immediately after your appointment. Results can take a few weeks to become visible, as it takes time for collagen to be produced and implemented into the body.
Many patients notice improvements after a single treatment, although most patients will need to receive multiple treatment sessions to achieve their desired results. If you would like to see PelleFirm results, please visit our before and after page.
