These days, there are multiple options Dr. Angelchik provides for skin tightening without the need for invasive surgery, including AccuTite, Morpheus8, and Renuvion. But how can you tell which one is right for your specific concerns, timeline, and budget? Here we’ll talk about Renuvion in particular to help you decide if this is the right skin-tightening treatment for you.
There are many ways that board-certified physicians like Dr. Angelchik can help people achieve tighter, firmer, or even thicker skin. Renuvion uses its trademark J-Plasma technology to generate both radiofrequency energy and helium plasma as it is drawn underneath the skin.
The plasma and radiofrequency (RF) energy nearly instantly heats subdermal tissue, specifically the fibro septal network that immediately contracts the skin while stimulating the longer-term generation of new collagen. The immediate results and minimally invasive procedure makes this a great alternative for people who might be considering a facelift but don’t want the downtime, invasive surgery, or expense.
There are a few criteria for people to be eligible for getting Renuvion. For example, people with extensive excess skin in any area of the body, people who aren’t good candidates due to smoking habits, age, or other contraindications, or people who only want a touchup or no incisions at all may not want to consider Renuvion. One way to characterize Renuvion is to compare it to a halfway point between surgery and completely non-invasive procedures that do not reach below the skin.
Renuvion has been designed for a few specific treatments, including skin tightening. As Dr. Angelchik uses the device, Renuvion is capable of helping with:
- Acne scars
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Loose or sagging skin throughout the body
- Sun damage
Renuvion is, critically, not limited to any one part of the body. Due to its versatile handpiece, Renuvion can be used on its own or as a complement to other minimally invasive procedures. Although Dr. Angelchik often recommends it for the face and neck area, Renuvion can help all over the body when indicated.
The long-lasting results of Renuvion are one of the main benefits people cite after receiving it. Although it does provide immediately visible skin tightening, the best part of Renuvion results is that it also stimulates collagen production for long-term skin structure enhancement. This not only increases the benefits over the weeks following your procedure, but also reduces the likelihood of abnormal or visible scarring from the small incisions needed to insert the device under the skin.
Renuvion is an excellent option for people who aren’t quite ready or willing to undergo surgery but want significant improvement in the quality, firmness, or elasticity of their skin wherever their area of concern is. Dr. Angelchik is a trusted, board-certified physician who treats patients throughout the Phoenix, Scottsdale, and Gilbert areas of Arizona.
