People come from all different walks of life, but if there’s one thing human beings can all get behind, it’s the desire to have some control over their bodies. We diet to lose weight, strength train to get strong, run marathons to improve our cardiovascular health, and those things are just the tip of the iceberg. It’s no wonder that plastic surgeons are regularly coming up with new and innovative ways to give our patients control over their physical appearance.
For many decades, patients hoping to sculpt their bodies into a more pleasing shape would have to undergo a more invasive surgery like a tummy tuck or breast lift. And while those specific surgeries are still very popular, the industry has grown to include many less invasive procedures that give excellent results but require less investment of time and resources from the patient. One emerging and much-sought-after body sculpting procedure is called Renuvion®. If you’ve been around here very long, you’ve probably already heard us raving about it. Are you curious to hear what all the commotion is about?
Here’s what you need to know about Renuvion®.
Renuvion® is a non-surgical skin-tightening device that uses the power of heat to contract loose skin and create a tightened appearance. During the procedure, your plastic surgeon will make small inclusions in the skin of the area you are targeting for rejuvenation. The Renuvion® wand is then inserted into those incisions. This is where the device does its magic.
The secret to Renuvion® is its combination of helium plasma and radiofrequency (RF) energy. The RF heats up the skin just enough to tighten it, and then the helium quickly cools it off. The process stimulates the production of collagen for months after, so you will continue to see improvements in the appearance of your skin over time. Because the procedure is minimally invasive, you will be able to return home the same day with recovery instructions from your doctor.
This combination of less invasive and highly effective is revolutionary.
Patients love the sound of “less invasive” procedures, but the truth is, they’re generally less effective than their surgical counterparts. This procedure, however, is the most effective minimally invasive, skin-tightening procedure on the market. Patients get small incisions that leave very small, if any, scars and can return to their regular routines pretty quickly.
Is Renuvion® right for me?
Renuvion® is an ideal procedure for patients who don’t want to undergo traditional surgery. Whether you’re a busy person who doesn’t have time for the recovery required after a surgical procedure or simply don’t want to endure an invasive surgery, this may be the answer you’ve been looking for. It’s great for those with more minimal to moderate pockets of loose skin. While those with significantly stretched skin thanks to weight loss/gain often are advised to stick with traditional procedures like tummy tucks.
The quality of our skin naturally decreases with age. There’s nothing we can do to change the reality of our biology. But, we can fight against it with procedures like Renuvion®. We’ve already seen tremendous results with this new technology and are so pleased to see how it has returned joy and self-confidence to our patients’ faces.
If you are a person who struggles to feel proud of their body due to loose skin, you don’t need to hide any longer. Winter is an ideal time to invest in a procedure like this one because you will continue to see improvements right up until swimsuit season. Take control back over your life and love how you look again. Contact our office today to learn more about Renuivion® and our other minimally invasive procedures. We’d love to help you feel great about your body this year.
