Tight, firm and elastic skin is a sign of youth and beauty. Age, sun exposure, weight loss, and other factors causes our skin to sag, and can wind up making you look older than you are. Many people would like to find a reliable, effective way to tighten their skin and regain the refreshed, youthful appearance they had before. Of the many skin tightening and firming treatments and procedures available to help people achieve this, Renuvion stands out as one of the most impactful and dramatic–without requiring a surgical procedure.
What is Renuvion?
Renuvion is a cutting-edge, minimally-invasive technology that provides a significant tightening and firming effect. This highly-effective alternative to surgery provides long-lasting skin rejuvenation and revitalization of the skin.
Renuvion combines helium gas and radiofrequency energy to generate a substance called cold helium plasma, which causes the skin to contract and triggers collagen production. Often called a “non-surgical tummy tuck,” the Renuvion treatment provides a lift to the areas treated, achieving similar results that a facelift or tummy tuck would, but not as significant as an actual surgery.
Benefits of Renuvion
Renuvion provides a number of benefits for patients with skin laxity:
- Short procedure time
- Minimally invasive
- Provides significantly tighter skin
- Can treat a wide range of areas
- Requires very small incisions
- Very minimal scarring
- Requires no repeat treatments
- Short downtime
- Helps you achieve a youthful, rejuvenated appearance
Renuvion at Allure Esthetic
Your Renuvion treatment begins with a consultation with Dr. Sajan. Dr. Sajan will examine your skin and discuss your skin laxity concerns and your ideal outcome for your treatment, including which areas you would like to address. Common areas are the face, abdomen, neck, legs, buttocks and back.
He will review your medical history and answer any questions, and talk you through the details of the Renuvion treatment so that you’re fully prepared and know what to expect.
The Renuvion Procedure
To begin, Dr. Sajan will numb the treatment area with a general anesthetic. He will then make a very small incision, less than half a centimeter, so that he can insert the Renuvion device under your skin. Once inserted, the device will emit ionized gas and radiofrequency, which combine to create cold helium plasma.
The cold helium plasma instantly begins firming up the skin. Heat warms the area and melts fat, while excess helium gas cools the area. The combination of these activities contracts the tissues, and the skin tightens and firms itself up.
At the same time, collagen production is heavily boosted, which is what your body naturally uses to generate elastic, firm skin.
The procedure time varies based on the number of areas treated, with each area taking about 15-30 minutes.
Recovery after Renuvion
You will need about a week to rest and heal after your Renuvion treatment. You will wear a compression garment over the treated areas, which helps to reduce swelling and fluid collection. Most patients can return to sedentary work after 5-7 days, but wait until Dr. Sajan gives you the approval before engaging in any rigorous activities or exercise.
What Areas Can Renuvion Treat?
Renuvion provides the benefit of being able to be used on almost any part of the body. Treatment areas include the following:
- Abdominal area
- Lower face
Am I a Candidate for Renuvion?
Renuvion candidates are men or women who have mild to moderate skin laxity and would prefer a non-surgical approach to renewing their skin. Ideal candidates meet the following requirements:
- Have moderate wrinkles, lines, and skin sagging
- Are within five to ten pounds of their ideal weight
- Do not smoke
- Are generally in good health and have no serious medical concerns
- Have realistic expectations for what Renuvion can accomplish
After your Renuvion treatment, you will be able to notice tighter, firmer skin. However, it will take about a month for the swelling to fully subside. You will be able to see the results much more clearly at this point. The results and positive changes will continue to build over the next six to nine months, which is when you will see and enjoy more dramatic improvement.
The results of Renuvion are very long-lasting. You will be able to enjoy the changes and benefits for a minimum of five years.
