Will I Be Undergoing Surgery with Renuvion?

  • Renuvion is a minimally invasive procedure that can be done in the doctor’s office. 
  • The procedure can take 30 minutes or more, depending on the extent of treatment and the size of the treatment areas. 
  • Renuvion can be performed with local, oral, or general anesthesia, depending on your comfort level and whether other procedures are being performed concurrently. Dr. Shah will recommend the best anesthesia option for you. 
  • A thin cannula device is inserted through tiny incisions to deliver helium plasma energized with radiofrequency waves to the undersurface of the skin. 
  • This immediately tightens the skin and stimulates collagen production for months to come.

How Much Downtime Should I Plan for with Renuvion?

You can return home on the same day after a Renuvion procedure. Most patients return to normal activities within a few days after treatment. You may experience some tightness in the treatment area which should subside as you begin to heal, along with mild bruising and swelling for the first weeks.

Any discomfort can be relieved with pain medications. You will need to wear a compression garment for a few days if treatment was on the face, or for several weeks if treatment was on the body.

How does Renuvion work?

With advanced Renuvion technology, radiofrequency energy is used to ionize helium gas. This creates controlled cold plasma energy that is less likely to damage tissue. The device delivers cold plasma energy beneath or above the skin’s surface, tightening and smoothing targeted areas. Renuvion promotes skin contraction and collagen production. When used for skin resurfacing, it removes damaged layers of skin, revealing healthier, firmer skin underneath.

Where can you have Renuvion treatment?

Renuvion skin tightening can be used on any part of the body or face with excess skin. It can be used to correct skin laxity in combination with liposuction. It can be done as a standalone procedure or performed in combination with other treatments. Areas commonly treated with Renuvion include:

  • Face
  • Chin
  • Neck
  • Arms
  • Abdomen
  • Back
  • Flanks
  • Inner and outer thighs
  • Hips
  • Buttocks
  • Legs

What are the benefits of Renuvion for skin tightening?

Renuvion is minimally invasive, state-of-the-art technology, approved by the FDA. It is a safe, effective, skin tightening technique that does not overheat the treatment area. Renuvion is more precise than other skin tightening methods that use laser, ultrasound, or radiofrequency energy. Because results are visible in real time, the doctor can adjust the treatment to contour specific areas, achieving optimal results. Providers can literally watch skin tightening as the procedure is performed. Renuvion is a more effective alternative to other skin tightening treatments and may replace facelift for some patients.

When will my results be visible after Renuvion?

You will start to see results after a few weeks, when swelling and tenderness have subsided. Final results appear at approximately three months, and these results will continue to improve for up to six months after treatment.
