Renuvion tightens loose skin and collagen with the combined technologies of radiofrequency and helium plasma. If you have loose skin but not to the extent that can benefit from a facelift or tummy tuck, then Renuvion may be right for you! It tightens collagen and tissue for a firm, defined look.
Some of the benefits of this procedure include:
- Minimally invasive. Small, hidden incisions are all that is needed to insert the thin, narrow probe that emits the radiofrequency and helium plasma. Oftentimes the procedure can be completed under local anesthesia, although some patients benefit from deeper sedation.
- Effective. The Renuvion device tightens collagen and skin by heating up the tissue with radiofrequency and immediately cooling the tissue with helium plasma. Although heat is created, the area cools very quickly to prevent burns and other adverse reactions.
- Lasting. The results are more or less permanent, except that Renuvion cannot stop the aging process. Many people feel like their best results persist for up to a year or longer, at which point the effects of aging may begin to show, but your skin will look younger than it would have otherwise.
- Combinable. Renuvion can be combined with liposuction for optimal skin-tightening and fat-reducing results, especially for sub-mental fullness that creates a double chin.
Most people notice an immediate improvement in their skin right after the treatment. The best results will build over the following three to six months. Renuvion can be used on many areas, including:
- Upper arms
Most people are able to return to work the next day or within one week. You will need to take two to three weeks off from exercise, after which you can begin gradually increasing strenuous activity. Depending on the treatment area, you may need to wear a compression garment for several weeks.
