OCEANSIDE, N.Y., April 2 /PRNewswire/ -- On April 5th, Pelleve™, a skin tightening system for the nonsurgical treatment of wrinkles, will be seen in millions of homes across the country on "The Doctors," the daytime talk show that highlights on-set medical procedures and the latest scientific advances in the news delivered by four practicing medical professionals. "The Doctors" plastic surgeon and reconstructive surgery expert Dr. Drew Ordon will interview Dr. Lisa Chipps to demonstrate how Pelleve can help patients achieve a more youthful, refreshed appearance with virtually no pain and little downtime.

Created by the producers of the renowned "Dr. Phil" show, "The Doctors" is distributed by CBS Television Distribution. The Pelleve episode airs nationally next week across the country.

Lisa Chipps, M.D., is a board-certified dermatologist specializing in general and cosmetic dermatology, laser treatments, and dermatologic surgery with Moy-Fincher Facial Plastics/Dermatology in Beverly Hills, Calif. Dr. Chipps is also a Clinical Instructor at the School of Medicine at UCLA, a Diplomate of the American Board of Dermatology, a member of the American Academy of Dermatology, the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery and the American Society of Cosmetic Dermatology and Aesthetic Surgery, among other designations. During the interview with Dr. Ordon, Dr. Chipps will perform the Pelleve™ Wrinkle Treatment System procedure with one of her patients.

"Pelleve reduces facial wrinkles by slowly and carefully heating the deep layers of the skin with a warming device. The heat causes the collagen in the skin to contract, and also stimulates new collagen production, which results in improved skin quality and appearance," said Dr. Chipps. "Pelleve provides an advantage over other skin tightening systems because it uses a unique handpiece that allows the practitioner to precisely target each patient's personal problem areas. It is a painless procedure, so no anesthetic is required. Each Pelleve treatment is a positive experience for patients because it feels like a warm facial massage.  The patient can go right back to work after leaving my office."

Dr. Chipps added that following the procedure, patients should expect to see some immediate improvement followed by continued, gradual improvement over the course of six months. The overall result is skin rejuvenation that appears firmer and tighter.

"Many of my patients don't want to have cosmetic surgery, but do want to feel better about their appearance," said Dr. Chipps. "Pelleve offers the natural, refreshed results they're looking for in a nonsurgical procedure with no downtime."

"We're excited to bring our revolutionary skin-tightening technology to a cutting-edge show like 'The Doctors,'" said Tom Harper, Executive Vice President of Global Marketing for Ellman International, which developed the Pelleve Wrinkle Treatment System. "Pelleve is a great option for the millions of consumers who want to achieve their aesthetic goals of skin rejuvenation without surgery, and the opportunity to work with "The Doctors" is invaluable in reaching that audience."

Pelleve was introduced to the U.S. market last year through dermatologists, plastic surgeons, facial plastic surgeons and other cosmetic surgery clinics.
