Renuvion® Skin Tightening
Have you noticed areas such as your jawline, arms, or thighs where the skin is not as firm and smooth as it used to be? Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Kent V. Hasen offers a safe, effective, minimally invasive solution called Renuvion. This skin tightening treatment gives Naples-Fort Myers patients more youthful-looking contours without the incisions and downtime associated with plastic surgery.
How Does It Work?
- High precision
- Minimal impact to surrounding tissue
- Fast treatments
- Immediate results with continued improvement for months
What Is Renuvion® Used for?
Women and men choose Renuvion for nonsurgical skin tightening on a variety of areas, including:
- Lower face
- Upper back and bra line
- Upper arms
- Tummy, waist, and hips
Dr. Hasen performs Renuvion after fat removal with liposuction to tighten and smooth out skin that lacks natural elasticity. He also combines Renuvion and neck liposuction with MyEllevate® to provide a nonsurgical facelift for the right patients.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Renuvion (J-Plasma®)?
Renuvion works best for people who want to tighten mild to moderate skin laxity on the lower face, neck, or body without surgery and weeks of downtime. If your skin is significantly lax and inelastic due to pregnancy, major weight loss, or the aging process, you may need a surgical procedure such as a facelift, tummy tuck, or arm lift instead of Renuvion.
What Are Renuvion Treatments Like?
Dr. Hasen performs Renuvion as an outpatient treatment that takes about 30 to 45 minutes to complete. He uses local anesthetic with oral sedation or deep IV sedation and an epidural depending on the specifics of the procedure and personal preference. Dr. Hasen inserts the long, flexible Renuvion probe under the skin through tiny incisions near the targeted areas. As he moves the probe back and forth under the skin, RF energy and helium are released to quickly heat and cool the skin from within.
When combining Renuvion with liposuction, Dr. Hasen first removes the unwanted fat and then inserts the Renuvion probe through the same incisions to perform skin tightening.
What Should I Expect During Recovery?
Depending on the areas treated, patients are usually ready to return to non-strenuous daily activities within 2 to 5 days. Expect discomfort, swelling, and bruising in the treated areas initially. You will need to wear a compression garment or wrap for 1 to 4 weeks to minimize swelling and encourage smooth results during the healing process.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Patients typically need just a single treatment to attain noticeable, long-lasting skin tightening.
How Long Does It Take To See Results From Renuvion?
Treated areas typically look firmer right after a Renuvion treatment and continue to tighten and smooth out for 6 to 9 months as new collagen forms.
