Renuvion® Skin Tightening
Destin Plastic Surgery is the area leader in innovation! Renuvion technology is used to tighten loose skin on your face or body without the scars associated with neck lifts, tummy tucks, and arm lifts.
How Does Renuvion Work?
Renuvion treatments are typically performed in conjunction with liposuction. Whether performed by itself or with liposuction, Dr Burden inserts the hand-held, wand-shaped device just below the skin. Once in place, the Renuvion device fills the space created under the skin with helium gas and then delivers a precise stream of plasma energy to the collagen and connection tissue causing the tissues to shrink. The overlying skin then shrinks with the deeper tissues to give a firmer, tighter result.
Who Can Benefit From Renuvion?
Renuvion is a less invasive alternative to a someone who is not yet a candidate for a facelift or neck lift, armlift, tummy tuck, or thighlift, but wants a more defined jawline and neckline, a better shape of the arms, abdomen, or thighs. When combined with liposuction, the results can be quite dramatic. The treatment can also address mild to moderate loose skin that results after weight loss. Women and men who want to avoid the longer recovery time that follows surgical facial rejuvenation or body contouring are excellent candidates for Renuvion.
- Sagging neck skin
- Jowls or loose skin along the jawline
- Mild sagging on the upper arms
- Bra and back rolls
- Stretched abdominal skin
- Loose skin on the inner or outer thighs
You can target multiple areas during a single Renuvion treatment.
How Much Does A Renuvion Treatment Cost?
The cost of a Renuvion procedure depends on the needs of each patient. Renuvion is frequently added on to other procedures and the cost is dependent on the procedure needed. During your consultation, we’ll discuss your concerns and cosmetic goals and devise a customized treatment plan based on that assessment. We’ll then provide a price quote that you can review before making a decision about the treatment.
How Long Does Recovery Take After Renuvion?
Even though some patients feel well enough to return to normal activities within a week of their treatments, your recovery could take a bit longer. During the healing process, you’ll have some redness and swelling in the treatment area, along with bruising. The discomfort is typically managed with an over-the-counter pain reliever.
You may notice some results immediately after the treatment, but the skin will continue to tighten for up to 9 months after the procedure.
How Long Do Results Last?
A single Renuvion treatment can produce results that last years, especially if you lead a healthy lifestyle and have good skincare habits. Applying a high-quality sunscreen daily can help extend the duration of the results. The aging process continues, of course, and the skin’s elasticity will gradually diminish.
