OCEANSIDE, N.Y., Oct. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Pelleve(TM), a skin tightening system for the nonsurgical treatment of wrinkles, will be seen in 120 million homes across the country this weekend on The Learning Channel's (TLC) "Beauty Spaces," a show that brings consumers the latest in beauty innovation and education. Created by the producers of the award-winning show "Designing Spaces," "Beauty Spaces" interviewed Dr. Michael Stampar to learn how Pelleve(TM) can help patients achieve a more youthful appearance with virtually no pain and little downtime.
The show airs nationally on TLC (Saturday at 7:00AM Eastern) and We(TM) (Friday at 7:30AM Eastern), as well as in Atlanta, Baltimore, Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Tampa this week.
Dr. Michael Stampar, a board-certified facial plastic surgeon from Punta Gorda, Florida, demonstrated the Pelleve(TM) Wrinkle Treatment System with patients Linda Hendrick and Mimi Evans.
"Pelleve(TM) works by gradually and progressively heating the skin with a warming device to stimulate new collagen production, which results in the appearance of firmer skin," said Dr. Stampar. "Unlike other skin tightening procedures, Pelleve(TM) is virtually painless. Because we're raising the temperature of the skin gradually instead of suddenly, the patient experiences the feeling of a warm facial massage."
Stampar explained that immediately after the procedure, patients should expect to see skin that appears firmer and tighter. The overall result is a noticeable improvement in skin quality and appearance with minimal side effects and recovery time.
When asked who may be a candidate for Pelleve(TM), Dr. Stampar indicated that patients should speak to their physicians about whether Pelleve(TM) is appropriate for them based on their skin type, age, and what they hope to accomplish by having the procedure.
