- Fine lines and wrinkles

- Sagging skin
- Dry, rough skin
- Sun spots
- Uneven skin tone
Helium plasma dermal resurfacing
One of the most advanced resurfacing procedures available, Renuvion helium plasma dermal resurfacing delivers astonishing results. This treatment is so effective that for many patients, it replaces a surgical facelift. The plasma dissolves the upper layers of damaged skin, revealing the deeper, healthy layer of skin beneath it.
This resurfacing lessens wrinkles, improves age spots and broken capillaries, corrects sun damage and uneven skin tone, minimizes the appearance of large pores, stimulates collagen production, and provides an overall skin glow. Because of its technology, Renuvion helium plasma dermal resurfacing allows for more aggressive (i.e., effective) treatment than laser resurfacing. During recovery, you will experience redness and swelling. The swelling should subside within 3 to 7 days, and the redness may be present for up to two weeks. Patients can expect to see results in 10 days to 14 days.
Off label (meaning not yet FDA-approved), Renuvion is used for facial skin rejuvenation procedures, including regional facial or full facial skin resurfacing procedures that target wrinkles and sun damage. Renuvion is also used in combination therapy with other procedures such as neck contouring and laser liposuction of the arms or abdomen. The Renuvion body lift tightens the skin’s under-surface including the collagenous fibrous septa in the subcutaneous tissue.
The smoothing of the skin’s surface (seen in the above photo) is as good as any laser device, and superior to many laser treatments. The healing progress with significant fading of inflammation and redness at just over three weeks is also excellent. Traditional full-field deep laser skin resurfacing often leaves more intense redness that may last much longer.
