What is Renuvion?
First came coolsculpting as the new kid on the block for freezing fat in areas that would otherwise have to be treated with liposuction. Now here’s a new game-changer in town: Renuvion. A minimally-invasive treatment for loose skin, Renuvion creates cold plasma by utilizing helium and a gentle stream of radiofrequency energy to significantly contract the collagen-rich connective tissue beneath the skin. And the absolute best, life-altering part: you’ll likely only need one treatment, with results seen over the course of a few weeks, and may continue to improve for up to one year.
Think of Renuvion as a three-dimensional, loose-skin “shrinkwrap”. It can tighten skin just about anywhere on the body, and even be used with liposuction for a one-two fat-blasting punch. Plus, one of the most amazing things about Renuvion is that it can be used on areas where there’s more loose skin rather than fat. In other words, even without a liposuction accompaniment, it provides superior skin tightening because it selectively affects the skin and connective tissue.
Let’s talk recovery.
Since the areas you’re targeting are treated the same way they would be for liposuction, your Renuvion recovery is similar to that of liposuction. You can expect mild swelling, bruising and discomfort in the treated area, and you can usually return to work and regular activities within a few days, but strenuous activities like exercise should be avoided for a few weeks.
Now, What Really Matters: The Results.
While it’s a newer treatment, the thousands of Renuvion patients show that the results can last at least five years. And because of the technology behind it, it’s likely your results could last even longer. Check out renuvion results on their website, here.
Who is a Good Candidate for Renuvion?
As with many aspects of plastic surgery, the correct answer here is that it depends. Before your consultation, it’s important to have realistic expectations for your surgical outcome. Some patients may benefit more from an invasive procedure such as face lift, tummy tuck or arm lift. However for those with moderate skin-laxity, Renuvion is a great option.
