You may remember back to my previous post: my consultation with Dr Khan, the celebrity cosmetic doctor. Way back when I was 8 months pregnant. I didn't know what was going to hit me. How tired I was going to feel and look and therefore how much more I was going to 'need' some serious anti-ageing afterwards!
Well, I'm over the worst now; the extreme sleep deprivation, the two hour naps at night at best and I've come through the other end. I've been chewed, swallowed and spat out by the a newborn. Don't get me wrong, it's worth every minute and it doesn't last that long although at the time it feels like it's going to last a lifetime. Everyone tells you that and it's true!
Anyway, dark circles under my eyes where there were none before and a face that just cannot defy gravity led me down the path of non-invasive anti-ageing with Pelleve and Reaction ( same technology just the machine has the potential to treat much larger areas including the body (it is very effective on cellulite and loose skin I am reliably informed).
Apparently, a large percentage of clients are men too. Perhaps they like the idea of anti-ageing without the Botox and the filler. Exactly what drew me to the treatments. My first treatment of three with Pelleve took about 20 minutes. Was completely painless. A warm wand moved over my eye area including my forehead and cheekbone area. I won't go over the technology in detail but these radiofrequency-based treatments heat the lower layers of the skin which in turn stimulates collagen production and skin tightening.
Although you really need to have 3 treatments a month apart and 6 of the Reaction two weeks apart I noticed an immediate change after my first Pelleve. As the eye area is more sensitive it can react more quickly to heat stimulation and with me it did. I looked 'rested'. My minor crows feet look less noticeable and almost disappeared completely. The Reaction I had done on my lower face and neck. Again it's painless and takes about 30 minutes to treat both areas as each is considered a separate area. The treatments are almost relaxing. Especially for a new mother; an hour off is always a welcome break! I had some quite deep lines on my neck that I have had for ever which is why I wanted the Reaction on my neck.
This is the last part of my post. I've had round three, the final round and I'm really happy. I look unbelievably good for someone who hasn't had a full nights sleep in five months. The wrinkles on my forehead are gone, my eyes are substantially lifted and the lines on my neck have faded.
Overall, I would recommend Pelleve to anyone who wants a more youthful look without the Botox and fillers. It really does work. I did go to Harley Street Skin and they did a brilliant job. What is also nice about the clinic is that is has a comfortable yet luxurious feel to it so it's relaxing which again provided me with some much needed respite from my day as 'mummy'!
