Have you recently decided to fight back against aging? One of the most common concerns when looking for treatments involves how long each treatment lasts. With such busy lifestyles, it is hard to schedule multiple trips to the dermatologist to maintain younger and refreshed looking skin. So, is Renuvion Skin Tightening designed to last?
What Is Renuvion?
Renuvion is a minimally invasive skin tightening treatment that combines the unique properties of helium plasma with radiofrequency energy to create a dual thermal effect. It is the latest technology that has been FDA approved for skin tightening. It works by passing helium plasma energy under the skin. This helium gas is energized by radiofrequency waves and flows over the treatment area. The plasma beam heats and contracts the skin and fibro-septal network. The excess helium gas cools the area. This process tightens and shrinks the underlying tissue. Wrinkles and texture are improved and the skin is tighter and firmer. In addition to these instant changes, Renuvion stimulates the production of collagen for long-lasting improvements.
Renuvion treats sagging cheeks, jowls, neck, abdomen, arms, thighs, flanks, and hips/buttocks. It is effective for both men and women who are seeking to improve the firmness and texture of their bodies.
What Is a Treatment Like?
A Renuvion treatment typically takes a minimum of 30 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area and the number of areas being treated. The treatment can be done in-office or in the OR with or without liposuction. Tiny incisions are then made to allow the very thin cannula device to deliver the helium plasma to the undersurface of the skin. The helium plasma tightens the skin immediately and stimulates collagen production for months.
How Long Will My Results Last?
Immediately upon the completion of your treatment, most will see that the skin is tighter and firmer. During the next 6 to 9 months, your skin will continue to improve due to the increased collagen production that results from the Renuvion treatment. Typically, patients only need one or two treatments to achieve their desired results and these results are relatively permanent. In fact, it is estimated that the treatment of the face and neck will last a minimum of 5 years, especially with good skincare following the procedure.
