Renuvion LogoRenuvion is helping our patients see tighter skin for the face and body. It’s the only FDA-cleared device for tightening skin after liposuction and contracting subcutaneous soft tissue.

At SpaVie, we use the Apyx One Console, which incorporates Renuvion’s advanced 3-in-1 energy system. With this latest machine, we are able to more easily customize treatment by area treated and monitor treatment progress. The Renuvion handpiece delivers radiofrequency (RF) energy and/or helium plasma to achieve coagulation and contraction of soft tissue. The result is an improvement in the appearance of loose skin in areas treated by liposuction, including the abdomen, back, thighs, and the neck/submental region.

Best Candidates for Renuvion

Best Candidates for RenuvionSkin tightening after body contouring surgery (liposuction) is one of the main uses for Renuvion, and one of the most exciting advancements we’ve seen in recent years to improve liposuction results. For some people, their skin does not sufficiently “shrink back” following fat removal, leaving a sagging skin appearance in the treatment area. Renuvion can help the skin contract and re-contour to your slimmer figure after surgery.

Renuvion also can be used on its own to deliver skin tightening without surgery. Tissue contraction occurs very rapidly, resulting in noticeable tightening and results our patients love! If you have loose skin on your lower face or areas of your body, you may be a great candidate for this treatment. We are available to consult with you and provide you with a professional opinion on which of the many advanced aesthetic treatments we offer will be best for achieving your goals.

Renuvion-NeckIn addition to improvements following body treatments, Renuvion can be used for facial rejuvenation, specifically on the neck and below the jawline. Renuvion is the only device that is FDA-cleared for improving the appearance of loose skin on the neck and chin. It can be used in conjunction with liposuction in the lower face or as a standalone treatment.

Renuvion smooths and contracts the facial and neck skin in a single procedure. Plus, it can dramatically reduce lines and deep wrinkles with a high level of patient satisfaction. Because it directly treats the deeper layers of the skin, it results in lasting improvement and a smooth, radiant look without cutting.

What to Expect

Renuvion StepsThe Renuvion handpiece is inserted under the skin and delivers a unique combination of radiofrequency energy and helium plasma to the collagen-rich tissue that’s a primary cause of loose skin. This energy contracts these collagen fibers and pulls the skin down, closer to the muscle, for a more contoured appearance.

Renuvion FAQs

Q. Is Renuvion right for me?
Renuvion is a non-surgical option for skin tightening and reducing wrinkles. It can be a great option after liposuction or on its own to achieve a smoother and more youthful looking skin tone on the body and face. To determine if you’re a good candidate, we’ll talk with you about your goals and provide a total treatment recommendation.
Q. How long do the results last?
No cosmetic procedure can completely stop the aging process. But Renuvion achieves long-lasting skin tightening by encouraging collagen rebuilding and remodeling. Its focus on deeper layers of tissue helps it produce lasting skin tightening.
Q. How many treatments do I need?
Renuvion is a single treatment. Results may be seen in as little as days or weeks and will continue to improve throughout the healing process.
Q. How long does the Renuvion procedure take?
Depending on the area of the body treated, the use of Renuvion only adds a few minutes per area to a standard liposuction case. If the treatment is being performed on its own, it may take an hour or more.
Q. What is recovery like?
Renuvion does not lengthen or shorten the recovery time following liposuction. If performed on its own, the healing process typically takes about 2 weeks. Some redness, peeling, and swelling may occur in the treatment area.
