Renuvion Skin Tightening – Benefits, Ideal Candidates, and Side Effects

Have you noticed the areas of your body, such as the thighs, arms or jawline, where the skin is not as smooth and tight as it once was?

Weight loss, pregnancy and age-related tissue destruction result in skin and tissue laxity. People chose various skin tightening procedures to get rid of saggy skin. You can get an idea from the Plastic Surgery Statistics Report that the cost of non-invasive skin tightening procedures in the US alone was $462,988,577 in 2020.

Renuvion skin tightening is one of those minimally invasive procedures. Helium plasma and radiofrequency radiation are applied beneath the skin to encourage skin contraction and tone undesirable laxity areas.

How does Renuvion Work?

The specialist makes a small entry point and inserts the device just beneath the skin to perform the Renuvion process. Once the device is positioned, the expert releases radiofrequency (RF) and pro helium gas (plasma) to generate a precise stream of energy. This energy produces enough heat to contract the skin, while excessive helium gas also cools the treatment region. This energy combination tightens the skin by contracting the tissues right beneath it.


Why Choose Renuvion?

Renuvion Skin Resurfacing is gaining popularity on a global scale. One of the reasons for its growth is that it is a minimally invasive, non-surgical technique that can yield excellent results without the risks.

Additionally, treatments are carried out as outpatient procedures, allowing you to go home the same day with skin that looks fresh and young.

The other advantages of this treatment also include:

  • Scar reduction
  • Reduction or removal of freckles and age spots
  • Reduction of creases and lines
  • Improved texture of the skin around the lips, eyes, cheeks, forehead, and neck
  • Reduction of acne and color-related problems (chloasma)

Renuvion can also be used with other cosmetic procedures, including a neck lift, to increase patient options and simultaneously deliver several benefits.

What can Renuvion treat?

Skin tightening with Renuvion is possible practically anywhere on the body. Typical areas are:

  • Arm lift
  • Belt raise
  • The breasts
  • Thigh lift
  • Knee lift
  • Neck and lower facelift
  • Tummy tuck

Ideal Candidates for Renuvion Procedure

Patients with mild to moderate skin laxity who are in good health, have reasonable expectations for their outcomes, and do not smoke are ideal candidates for renuvion.

Recovery and Side Effects

Recovery after Renuvion procedures can take two to three weeks, depending on the extent of the procedure and the target area. The frequency of negative events is less than average for Renuvion. For example, the complication rate for cosmetic liposuction is about 0.7 percent while for renuvion, it is only 0.04%.

However, patients can experience certain symptoms such as redness, itching or swelling for up to a few weeks. Symptoms are rarely severe, and patients can usually resume light activities after two to five days.
