Renuvion is a skin-tightening treatment that helps aging skin regain its firmness and vitality. At Marietta Plastic Surgery, we use Renuvion to renew deep skin layers in the face, neck, and body. Discover how experiencing Renuvion in Atlanta can help you rejuvenate your skin for a more youthful look.
What Is Renuvion?
Renuvion treatments use radiofrequency (RF) energy and helium plasma to tighten and lift skin on the face, neck, breasts, abdomen, arms, knees, thighs, and buttocks. This treatment can be used as an alternative to a surgical lift or to complement other procedures like liposuction.
Good Candidates for Renuvion
Renuvion is suitable for most healthy 30- to 50-year-old patients who have mildly or moderately sagging skin. If you are within ten pounds of your ideal weight and are a non-smoker, you are an ideal candidate for this procedure.
The Renuvion Procedure
The Renuvion procedure is performed in our office. We will administer local anesthesia, make a series of small incisions in the treatment region, and insert the Renuvion device under the skin.
The Renuvion wand will release a regulated stream of helium plasma and radiofrequency energy into the connective tissue, causing it to heat and contract quickly. Collagen production is also stimulated. The treatment process generally takes between 45 minutes and one and a half hours to complete.
What to Expect After a Renuvion Treatment
After your Renuvion treatment, you may experience some swelling and tenderness that can last four to six weeks. You will need to wear a compression garment for a time after your Renuvion procedure to encourage tighter skin and minimize swelling in the treated area.
The first week after your treatment, you should recover at home, limit your activity, and avoid strenuous exercise. You can return to work the following week and resume normal daily activities during the third week of your recovery period. While you recuperate, drink plenty of water, eat less salt and more protein, and walk daily to improve your circulation.
Renuvion treatments provide immediate effects that continue to develop over time. As soon as you complete your treatment, you should notice firmer, tighter skin. Over time, your skin will become smoother and firmer as new collagen is produced at an advanced rate. Your skin should show a noticeable improvement four to six weeks after treatment, and full results should be visible in four to nine months. Results can last five years or longer.
The price of Renuvion procedures can vary depending on your specific goals, the number and size of your treatment areas, and the total number of treatments you receive. You can discuss the total cost of Renuvion during your consultation.
