Renuvion® skin tightening treatment is one of the latest facial skin tightening procedures available in aesthetic medicine that is minimally invasive to the patient. If you suffer from excess or sagging skin in the face, neck, abdomen, or another part of the body, you may benefit from getting this skin tightening treatment.
At Anti-Aging & Regenerative Associates, we offer this non-surgical procedure for skin tightening to our patients.
What is Renuvion® Skin Tightening Treatment?
Renuvion® is a dermal treatment provided by Apyx Medical that uses radio frequency energy and helium plasma to tighten the skin in a minimally invasive manner. This procedure can be combined with liposuction and used as a stand-alone treatment for problem areas the patient wants to address.
Facial Plastic Surgery & Aesthetic Medicine found the skin plasma treatment more controlled in applying heat to a patient’s soft tissue. This allows the procedure to produce the desired effects with minimal to no scarring. Patients can use the treatment to lift skin in the:
- Abdomen and flanks
How does Renuvion® Skin Tightening Treatment Work?
Before the procedure begins, one of our physicians will explain the steps involved in the treatment, any side effects to expect, and aftercare steps you should take to maintain your skin.
Next, they will apply local anesthesia, depending on your preferences. Patients are awake throughout the entire skin tightening procedure.
The actual procedure involves inserting a wand device under the skin. Through this subdermal incision, the wand shoots radiofrequency energy into the soft tissue to stimulate contraction, which will encourage collagen production and continued tightening for up to six months after the procedure. We then use helium plasma to cool the treated area.
How Much will this Procedure Cost?
Depending on where you want the treatment and how many sessions you might need, the cost of Renuvion® skin tightening treatment varies. Our facility staff will discuss these costs before beginning the treatment.
How Soon will I See Results from the Skin Tightening Treatment?
You should be able to see results from the skin tighteners immediately after the session, in that the skin should feel firmer. However, because the treatment encourages collagen production and skin tightening for the next six months, you should see results improve over time.
With proper diet and nutrition, you can also enhance the effects of the procedure, especially if you receive treatment in the face. We will discuss aftercare steps to help you do so.
Are there any Side Effects to Renuvion® J Plasma Treatment?
According to Apyx Medical, there are some side effects to look out for such as:
- Unintended burns
- Infection around the incision site
- Some discomfort in the skin
- Pigmentation changes
However, many patients report minimal scarring and quick recovery times. If you do experience any pain or discomfort after the treatment, alert your physician immediately.
