How Does Renuvion® Work?

You may have loose skin in places for many reasons. Weight changes and the effects of aging can lead to skin laxity. People who have liposuction can also develop laxity if their skin is not elastic enough to tighten itself. Renuvion® tightens the skin from beneath for firm, sculpted results

What is Renuvion®?

Renuvion® is a way to tighten loose skin using a few small incisions. This procedure can be used alone to address skin laxity almost anywhere on the body. It can also be used after liposuction to ensure your skin tightens after fat removal. Renuvion® is FDA-approved to improve liposuction results by giving you a more contoured appearance. 

How Does Renuvion® Work?

Renuvion® is a minimally invasive treatment. It uses a wand inserted under the skin through a few small incisions. This wand uses helium plasma energy to heat and shorten the attachments between the skin and underlying muscles. Renuvion® is a safe, effective alternative to surgical skin tightening. 

The energy from Renuvion® causes collagen fibers under the skin to contract. It also triggers new collagen production in the skin’s deep layers. This new collagen will boost your skin’s firmness, so it looks tighter and smoother. These changes result in long-lasting results with only a few small, hidden incisions

Is There Any Downtime After Renuvion®?

You can expect some soreness and swelling in the treatment area for up to a few weeks after Renuvion® treatment. Most people can return to work within a few days. You will recover longer if you have Renuvion® with another procedure, such as liposuction. In that case, you can expect one to two weeks of recovery time. Your incisions will heal quickly, and you can usually resume your exercise routine within a week or two. 

What Results Will I See After Renuvion®?

You may see improvements in skin tightness within a few days of your procedure. Full results will develop over several months as your skin makes new collagen. You will only need one Renuvion® treatment to achieve tighter skin. If you have Renuvion® with liposuction, you will see that the treated area looks slimmer and more contoured with no skin laxity. 

Am I a Good Candidate for Renuvion®?

Only a consultation can determine whether Renuvion® is a good choice for you. Good candidates have mild to moderate skin laxity in targeted areas. Candidates may have Renuvion® alone or in combination with other procedures. 

You may be a good candidate for Renuvion® if you are considering surgical skin tightening but are not sure you need it. Many people considering a procedure like a tummy tuck can benefit from Renuvion®. Surgery is still the best option for significant sagging or those who need repair of the abdominal muscles. 

Dr. Rankin was very professional at consultation. I’m interested in neck lift, tummy tuck with liposuction in abdomen, back and inner thigh. He educated me on the procedure as well as answered my questions. He was very thorough. I recommend a consultation with him.
