Renuvion – Skin Tightening
Loose skin on your neck, arms, buttocks, back, chest, breasts, knees, thighs, abdomen, flanks, or anywhere else on your body can be frustrating, to say the very least. That’s where Renuvion by Bovie Medical comes in. The revolutionary, minimally-invasive Renuvion procedure uses a device, which turns helium gas into a precise stream of energy known as plasma.
Unlike conventional devices, Renuvion uses concentrated energy paired with cold helium gas to focus the radiofrequency (RF) energy exactly where you need it. It allows us to have a greater degree of precision and reduce damage to your surrounding tissues.
At Image Surgical Arts of Nashville, we always use Renuvion paired with VASER liposuction which helps to precisely sculpt your body. VASER is an advanced ultrasound-assisted liposuction technology to help patients achieve a sculpted, more athletic contour. Let’s take a closer look at how Renuvion works and how you may benefit from it.
How It Works
Dr. Harris will place the device just under your skin via a small entry point. The incision is usually about ¼ inch long. Then, he will release the helium gas and RF energy to create plasma.
The energy will produce enough heat to contract your skin while the excess helium gas cools the treatment area. Skin tightening occurs when this combination of energy contracts the tissues just under the skin. The procedure can be done under local anesthesia but at Image Surgical Arts Dr. Harris recommends light sedation.
Benefits of Renuvion
There are many benefits to the Renuvion skin tightening procedure. First and foremost, it offers a much lower risk of injury to the surrounding tissues. It also involves minimal incisions and short down-time. When paired with VASER Liposuction, Renuvion, can tighten skin and reduce wrinkles with minimal downtime compared to traditional surgery.
Good Candidates for Renuvion
Healthy men and women who are bothered by their mild to moderate sagging skin are the ideal candidates for Renuvion. They may wish to tighten their skin after weight loss or pregnancy.
Dr. Harris often pairs Renuvion alongside liposuction, specifically VASER assisted liposuction.
