Providence, Rhode Island Dermatologist Antonio P. Cruz, MD Now Offers the Pelleve® Wrinkle Reduction System

September 6, 2012

PROVIDENCE, R.I., Sept. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Board certified dermatologist Dr. Antonio P. Cruz of University Dermatology and SKINPros, LLC, affiliated with Alpert Medical School at Brown University in Providence, is pleased to announce that the advanced radiofrequency skin tightening treatment Pelleve® is now available to his patients as a treatment option to address the aging process.

The Pelleve Wrinkle Reduction System softens wrinkles on the face by slowly heating the deep layers of the skin with the GlideSafe advanced treatment device powered by radiofrequency technology. This heat helps create new collagen to smooth wrinkles and firm skin.

Results are impressive leaving patients with a natural result. “Patients are able to walk out of the office the same way they walked in–maybe a little pink but nothing that would give it away that they had something done. Skin tightening occurs over the following weeks and months. There is little to no downtime after the pain-free treatment, and that’s something that my patients appreciate,” says Dr. Cruz.

One major benefit to the treatment is the “subtle but significant changes” after Pelleve, notes Dr. Cruz. “We’re also able to give the eyelid area a lift without surgery,” he says. “My patients are universally satisfied with the results.”

Finally, Dr. Cruz adds, “Patients now have another option to treat the aging process at the level of their dermis. Pelleve can be used as an adjunct to current surgical and non-surgical treatments.”
