Pelleve Skin Tightening Q & A

What is aesthetic optometry?

Aesthetic optometry is a specialty that focuses on improving the look of your eyes. Dr. Dao and her team of optometrists at InFocus Vision want you to look and feel your best and know that your eyes play a major role in helping you achieve a more desirable look. In addition to Pellevé, the optometrists may also help enhance your natural beauty with contact lenses, frames that suit your face shape, or RevitaLash® Cosmetics to improve the look of your eyelashes and eyebrows.

What is Pellevé?

Pelleve’ is an alternative to IPL (IPL cannot be used on tan or darker skin tones, as it might permanently lighten the skin) and that be used on any skin complexion. Pelleve’ uses a wand that produces radiofrequency to heat the skin. A thin layer of cooling gel is applied to the area, and the skin is heated to 42° Celsius. Pelleve’ is used to unplug the oil glands that line the upper and lower lid margins. The light feels like a healing, warm compress and it liquefies any secretions that may be blocking the Meibomian glands.

Once the glands are unplugged, the oily layer of the tear film is restored, thus tears remain in the eye and bring soothing relief. We are seeing positive results from many of our patients who suffer from dry eye.

Pellevé is a noninvasive aesthetic treatment that uses radio frequency energy to improve the look and feel of your skin. The aesthetic optometrists may focus on your eyes, but Pellevé can be used on other parts of your face too, including:

  • Wrinkles around the mouth
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Forehead lines
  • Frown lines


Pellevé also tightens the loose skin under your eyes and improves the look of crow’s feet.

How does Pellevé work?

The radio-frequency energy generated by Pellevé targets the deep layers of your skin without causing any damage to the surface layer. The heat causes the collagen in your skin to contract and tighten and also stimulates the production of new collagen, which provides your skin with support and elasticity to give you a more youthful look.

What can I expect during treatment with Pellevé?

Treatment with Pellevé is gentle and relaxing and feels like a hot-stone massage. During treatment, your aesthetic optometry specialist applies the Pellevé handpiece to your skin and allows the heat energy to work its magic.

Treatment time varies depending on the treatment area but can take as little as 30 minutes. After you’ve completed your session, you can go right back to your usual activities without the need for any downtime.

To get the most benefit, you may need three to five treatments set at four-week intervals. Your aesthetic optometrist will develop your treatment plan before you get started so you know what to expect. You may notice a significant improvement in your look after two months of treatment.

After treatment, your aesthetic optometrist recommends you take good care of your skin by applying sunblock daily and wearing sunglasses and a wide-brimmed hat if you’re going to be out in the sun for an extended period of time.
