What is Renuvion®?

Liposuction alone can provide excellent results, but the remaining skin may look uneven and loose. Dr. Tenley Lawton combines Renuvion® with liposuction to give you results that look more toned and slim. Results begin immediately and improve over time for long-lasting firmness. 

What is Renuvion®?

Renuvion® uses a combination of radiofrequency (RF) and cold helium plasma to contract fibers in the skin and stimulate collagen production. Dr. Lawton often combines Renuvion® with liposuction since Renuvion® can work under the skin and produce more contraction in the underlying layers. This innovative treatment corrects the problem of loose skin after liposuction by contracting collagen fibers and triggering the creation of new ones.

Liposuction & Renuvion Newport Beach

How Does Renuvion® Work? 

Renuvion® uses a small cannula that can be inserted through the small incisions already made for liposuction. The cannula delivers RF energy which converts helium gas to a cold plasma. This combination keeps the process at a lower temperature for your comfort and safety. Using Renuvion® after liposuction allows improved sculpting and contouring for better overall results. A highly qualified and experienced provider should always administer Renuvion® to ensure that you achieve the results you want. 

What Results Will I See With Renuvion®?

When used under the skin after liposuction, Renuvion® causes the collagen fibers in the overlying skin to contract, giving the skin more firmness and smoothing unevenness. You will notice the difference immediately. The energy also triggers skin cells to produce new collagen that builds new, more resilient collagen fibers over the next few months. Most people will see their complete results in about six months. 

A surgeon can correct loose skin after liposuction by making an incision and removing the excess. If you have significant amounts of sagging skin, surgical removal might make the best option for you, but you will have a noticeable scar. For mild to moderate sagging, Renuvion® in combination with fat removal via liposuction can provide the desired tone and contouring.

What Is Recovery From Renuvion® Like? 

If you have Renuvion® by itself, you can expect recovery to take one to two weeks. If you have Renuvion® with liposuction, your liposuction recovery will take about two weeks, and Renuvion® will not make it last any longer. Soreness and swelling will feel worst right after surgery and will improve over the next few days. 

Am I a Good Candidate for Renuvion®? 

If you have skin laxity caused by age-related loss of collagen, you may make a good candidate for Renuvion®. Ideal candidates have mild to moderate laxity and reasonable expectations about what they can expect to see.
