What is Renuvion®?
It can be frustrating to have loose skin on your abdomen, flanks, thighs, arms or other areas of your body. The good news is that there is a cutting-edge, minimally-invasive skin tightening treatment that can improve skin in these problem areas. Renuvion® works by turning helium gas into a precise stream of energy known as a plasma. It can tighten your skin without damaging your surrounding tissues and give you the beautiful, toned look you’ve been longing for.
Best Candidates for Renuvion®?
Renuvion® is ideal for men and women who are in generally good health yet are concerned about mild to moderate loose skin on various areas of their body. It is a particularly good option if you’d like to tighten your skin after going through pregnancy or losing a substantial amount of weight. In addition, it can significantly enhance the results of liposuction.
During a Renuvion® treatment, Dr. Langdon will make a small skin incision so he can place the Renuvion electrode under your skin. Radiofrequency (RF) energy is then guided by a helium gas-generated plasma to sub-dermal fibrous tissue, which specifically contracts to tighten the overlying skin. We often pair Renuvion® with liposuction to increase skin tightening.
Several Benefits of Renuvion® Include:
- Minimal downtime: Because Renuvion® is a minimally invasive treatment, it requires very little downtime. You can return to work and your daily activities shortly after your treatment.
- No large incisions or obvious scars: After a Renuvion® treatment, you don’t have to worry about large incisions or obvious scars because the skin incisions Dr. Langdon makes are small and generally do not require a stitch.
Renuvion® Consultations Available
After a Renuvion® treatment, you can enjoy tighter skin and a toned appearance. You can resolve a flabby tummy or arms or almost any other body part that makes you feel self-conscious without the need for a major surgical procedure.
Frequently Asked Questions
Renuvion® pairs concentrated radiofrequency (RF) energy with a helium gas plasma to ensure that the RF energy is directed to exactly where it will have the greatest effect. This allows for greater precision and less damage to surrounding tissues.
Although some mild discomfort should be expected, it is short-lived and can be managed with an over-the-counter pain reliever.
Although most patients enjoy results shortly after Renuvion®, it may take some time for swelling to completely fade and full results may not be apparent for a few weeks.
