Can people with dark or very dark complexions take advantage of Pelleve?

Pelleve is a treatment that employs radiowaves to penetrate the skin and heat the underlying tissue in order to achieve what is called volumetric contraction of dermal collagen or simply tightening of the skin without damaging the overlying surface of the skin. During treatment care is taken not to overheat the treated areas so as not to cause any inflammation that might damage the skin or inflame it, which might result in darkening of the skin. I have successfully employed radiowave skin tightening for several years in all skin types without any discolorations.
