If you’re in the Sarasota and Tampa area and are interested in improving areas of sagging skin on your body without having to undergo surgery, Renuvion™ may be an excellent option for you. Often referred to as the “non-invasive tummy tuck”, Renuvion is an advanced skin tightening procedure that achieves beautiful results and leaves behind only pinhole scars.
What is Renuvion?
One of the most innovative and advanced developments in non-surgical aesthetics, Renuvion is a helium-based treatment that is used in conjunction with liposuction. This procedure is highly effective for tightening the skin, correcting lines and wrinkles, and improving surface abnormalities of the skin. Renuvion is a great option for anyone who wants to address sagging skin of the body — particularly for women who want to improve their abdomen after having children.
Key benefits of Renuvion
- No deep incisions or stitches
- Triggers collagen production
- Incisions are pinhole-sized
- Full recovery within three weeks
- Only one treatment required
- Progressive results as skin heals
How Renuvion works
The combination of helium gas and radiofrequency energy is what makes Renuvion work. The helium gas quickly converts to plasma and is energized by radiofrequency energy to create a powerful, precise stream of cool plasma. This stream goes right underneath the skin. When this helium plasma touches the tissue beneath the skin, it causes the collagen fibers to shrink within the skin, pulling them tighter while kickstarting brand new collagen production.
This process is effective even in areas where collagen production has significantly slowed down.
One of the greatest advantages of Renuvion is that the helium plasma stream only reaches 100 degrees Fahrenheit. This lower-level heat is especially effective for treating areas with very thin, delicate skin where collagen production has slowed.
Renuvion treatment details
After local anesthesia has been applied to the treatment area, the Renuvion cannula (a long, thin tube) is inserted just beneath your skin. Helium is emitted from the tip of this cannula. Once the cannula is placed beneath the skin, heat produced from the plasma triggers instant skin tightening. This produces an effect similar to shrink-wrap of the skin against the muscle. A typical Renuvion treatment takes 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area.
Candidates for Renuvion
If you’re interested in Renuvion skin tightening in Tampa or Sarasota, you may be an excellent candidate. The best candidates for this procedure have mild to moderate sagging skin and do not want to undergo surgery. If your skin laxity is more severe, surgical skin tightening may be a better option for your needs.
