Radio Frequency Ablation (RFA)

The saying “pain is beauty” has met its match with the Ellman Pellevé system. Harnessing the power of radio frequency energy, the Ellman Pellevé is trusted to firm, lift and smooth the skin without any noticeable signs of treatment.


Pellevé treatments offer a comfortable experience lasting approximately 60 minutes. Treatment sensation is likened to gentle heat requiring no anesthetic. Results can be noticeable after a single treatment. A series of up to three to six treatments may be recommended to achieve desired results. The system also offers the versatility of surgical applications. A professional consultation with a Cutis health professional will determine if an Ellman Pellevé treatment fits your needs and lifestyle.


There is no recovery time required after a Pellevé treatment. Some mild redness, swelling or tenderness may be experienced for a few hours, but normal activities can be resumed immediately. Cutis offers a medical grade mineral cosmetic to cover any facial redness post treatment, if desired. Consistent use of sun protection is suggested to preserve and maintain the results of your Pellevé treatments.

How It Works

Through advanced radiofrequency technology, electromagnetic waves translate into applications of heat in the dermal layer of skin. This heat contracts existing collagen and stimulates new collagen synthesis. An immediate tightening effect can be seen on the skin’s surface while prolonged skin firming and improved skin texture and tone develop for up to six months as new collagen developes.
