How Long Does Renuvion® Last?

Youthful skin has high levels of protein like collagen and elastin that let it stay firm and bounce back. Aging causes levels of these important structural proteins to decrease, resulting in skin laxity and an inability to contract after being stretched. Renuvion® is a skin tightening treatment that works from beneath the skin to firm and strengthen it. 

What is Renuvion® Skin Tightening?

Renuvion® is a unique cold helium plasma treatment that tightens the underlying layers of skin. It can be used alone in areas where you notice sagging skin, including the abdomen, upper arms, neck, and buttocks. Dr. Tenley Lawton often uses Renuvion® after liposuction so the fat removal does not leave behind loose skin. Renuvion® allows you to see the full benefits of your liposuction body sculpting. When used alone, it provides long-lasting improvement for all your most challenging areas of loose skin.

How Does Renuvion® Work?

Renuvion® uses a small cannula inserted through tiny incisions. This cannula transmits radiofrequency (RF) energy that energizes helium, creating cold helium plasma. As a result, Renuvion® works at a much cooler temperature than most forms of skin tightening, and your skin remains safe throughout the procedure. This energy causes the collagen fibers in your skin to contract immediately. When these fibers contract within the skin, they create a natural lifting effect that reduces the appearance of sagging and wrinkles. It also triggers increased collagen production over time.

Renuvion® produces both immediate and long-lasting results. TIghter collagen fibers will provide immediate lift and firmness. Cells called fibroblasts in the deeper layers of your skin will begin to produce more collagen, adding to your skin’s strength and resilience. While this new collagen takes several months to develop, your combined results can last for several years. You can help them last longer by avoiding sun exposure, using sunscreen, and leading a healthy lifestyle.

What is Recovery Like After Renuvion®?

Your recovery will depend on whether you have Renuvion® alone or as part of another procedure. Recovery from Renuvion® usually takes about a week, although you may need another week before any strenuous activities. Your recovery from liposuction will usually take about two weeks whether you have Renuvion® or not. Since Renuvion® does not extend your liposuction recovery, it is often recommended for those without good skin laxity. 

Am I a Good Candidate for Renuvion® Skin Tightening?

Renuvion® is an excellent option for those with mild to moderate skin laxity who want to address it without surgery. Good candidates have achievable goals and no major health problems. Individuals with significant sagging or laxity may benefit more from a surgical procedure. Dr. Lawton will work with you to develop a plan that achieves your goals.
