Here at Daily Update Towers we’re big fans of the Pelleve Peel at River Medical in Dublin city centre. So when Daily Update editor Declan Leavy asked me to review their new Season Starter package last month, I didn’t hesitate!
The team of registered general nurses at River Medical often combine a number of different non-surgical treatments to achieve the best results. The Season Starter is a combination of two of their most popular treatments: Wrinkle Relaxing Injections and Pelleve; which promise to leave skin looking replenished and smooth for all of your upcoming events.
A new innovation for smoother, tighter skin, Pelleve is FDA approved to treat facial wrinkles with no surgery, no injections and no downtime. It’s ideal for firming, tightening and lifting the skin, as well easing tired looking eyes, lines and wrinkles. The actual treatment is best described as a hot and cold treatment. The Pelleve hand piece heats the deep layers of the skin using advanced radiowave technology without damaging the top layer of the skin. The heat causes the collagen in the skin to contract and tighten, thus reducing wrinkles. An ice cold roller is rolled across the face intermittently to cool skin; this hot and cold action causes skin to produce new collagen. The expected results are an improvement in skin quality, tightness and firmness.
Wrinkle Relaxing Injections, or Botox as it’s more commonly known, needs no explanation. I make no secret of the fact that I hate my furrowed brow and twice-yearly Botox injections help to relax the area and make the deep furrow less noticeable. I opt for a smaller dosage so that the results are subtle and not completely “frozen”. At River Medical, their wrinkle relaxing injections are carried out by a qualified doctor who will always advise on the dosage and treatment areas so that the results are as natural looking as possible.
Both of these non-invasive treatments require no downtime, so you can go straight from River Medical to an event or even back to the office.
So how was my skin afterwards? I had a charity ball the following evening and several friends commented on my glowing complexion, despite the fact that I was wearing very little make-up! My overall complexion was smooth and relaxed and noticeably lifted. This isn’t just a quick fix treatment however, as I can still see the results more than four weeks later; skin is plumper and my complexion is still very healthy looking.
Highly recommended for anyone looking to smooth lines and wrinkles and generally lift and brighten the complexion, without having to opt for surgery!
The Season Starter is available at River Medical for a special one-off price of €800. To make a booking, visit www.rivermedical.ie or call 1850 885050
