Rejuvenate sagging skin with the help of Renuvion in New York City. This minimally invasive energy-based treatment is an effective way to restore firmness and youthfulness to the skin.
How Does Renuvion Work?
Renuvion creates helium plasma energy using a combination of radiofrequency (RF) energy and helium fluid. The resulting helium plasma energy creates immediate tissue contraction and boosts collagen protein production for long-lasting skin health and structure. Results look even and incredibly natural.
Renuvion can be used to improve the definition of the arms, chest, thighs, knees, neck, and back. It can also restore the youthful tightness of facial skin.
Oftentimes, Dr. Shafer will combine a Renuvion treatment with power-assisted liposuction (PAL) to achieve even more dramatic results. The procedures can be performed under local anesthesia if limited in scope or under anesthesia for multiple areas and more aggressive fat removal.
Ideal candidates for Renuvion skin tightening are patients who want to avoid surgical procedures and the downtime that can accompany them. If you’ve noticed loose drooping skin as a result of the aging process, dramatic weight loss, or pregnancy, this treatment option may be ideal for you.
People whose skin has a high degree of laxity may not be good candidates for this procedure. Patients who are allergic to anesthesia must discuss this during their consultation.
During a personalized consultation, you and Dr. Shafer will discuss your cosmetic needs and goals for your Renuvion treatment. Dr. Shafer will examine the trouble areas to evaluate the degree of skin laxity that is present. The two of you will also go over your complete medical history, including current medications and supplements, allergies, and pre-existing conditions.
Next, Dr. Shafer will tell you about the Renuvion treatment process from start to finish, including aftercare directions. This will help you feel as prepared as possible. Feel free to ask questions regarding the treatment.
What Is the Renuvion Treatment Process Like?
All procedures are performed in The Shafer Clinic accredited operating facilities. A Renuvion treatment session lasts for around an hour per trouble area. At the start, local anesthesia is usually administered to the region. Once it has taken effect, a tiny incision is created. Next, the Renuvion wand is carefully inserted into the incision, where it then emits helium plasma energy to treat the underlying tissues.
Once the treatment is complete, patients can return home to recover. Following Dr. Shafer’s recovery directions is key to ensure a minimized chance of complications.
Painkillers may be required to address any soreness or discomfort. Patients will need to wear a compression garment to control any post-treatment swelling. Additionally, time off from work will be required, usually around a week or two.
Skin-tightening results can be seen immediately following the Renuvion treatment session. These results will improve gradually and naturally over the coming months as a result of increased collagen production.
How Much Does Renuvion Cost?
When determining the cost of Renuvion treatment, many factors are considered. The number of treatment areas can affect price, as can the patient’s skin-tightening goals.
