What is Renuvion?


Renuvion® is the latest technology in non-surgical skin rejuvenation in the Phoenix, Scottsdale, and Glendale, AZ area. It uses safe and effective J-Plasma® technology to a generate cold helium plasma beam, coupled with radiofrequency energy. When passed over the skin (external application), the handpiece can effectively rejuvenate and resurface the skin in a method similar to a CO2 or Erbium YAG laser. This can effectively reduce concerns like loose skin wrinkles, acne scarring, and sun damage on the face. When the handpiece is placed underneath the skin (internal application) and performed in conjunction with liposuction or pre-tunneling, the fibrous septal network connecting the skin to the underlying tissue is tightened by the Renuvion beam, boosting collagen production and causing skin shrinkage. This makes it an excellent option for a minimally-invasive neck lift, facelift, or body tightening procedure where the skin is lifted and tightened without long incisions.

Who is a Candidate for Renuvion?

What are My Options for Renuvion?


Renuvion is an ideal technology because it can be used on many different areas of the body that experience laxity or textural concerns. This provides another alternative to conventional surgery, which can come with longer downtime and greater risks.

Face

For patients that are showing the beginning signs of aging in the face, Renuvion can be an excellent option in rejuvenating the profile without the need for a lengthy recovery. Renuvion can also be paired with other non-surgical options like injectables, professional skin treatments, and physician-grade skincare products for additional results.

Neck

One often-neglected area when it comes to anti-aging steps is the neck. Many people experience sagging, wrinkles, and aging signs in the neck even when the face is otherwise youthful and rejuvenated. A neck lift can come with some hassle, so Renuvion is a great alternative to address areas that don’t seem to have many treatment options.

Body

There are many different options for body rejuvenation, but it can seem like they either require surgery or, when treated with non-invasive modalities, may not produce intended results. Renuvion can tighten and lift the skin with a minimally-invasive technique, meaning you can return to your active lifestyle sooner. Renuvion can be performed in areas that commonly experience sagging and laxity, like the stomach, thighs, back, or arms.

What Happens During Renuvion?


 Renuvion may be performed with either local anesthetic techniques or general anesthesia, depending on the application and any other associated procedures, so that you’re comfortable throughout the procedure. Once you’re ready, the wand is passed both over the skin to resurface the face, and under the skin using tiny incisions to tighten all areas treated. The J-Plasma technology causes the skin to tighten and rejuvenate over the course of the next weeks and months, taking as much as a decade off the profile.

How Can I Maintain My Results?


For external application, the recovery is similar to laser resurfacing treatment. You can expect some redness, swelling, and peeling after external treatment. The facial skin will need one or two weeks after treatment to heal, depending on your skin and extent of treatment. Dr. Angelchik will provide aftercare instructions to follow during this time so that your skin remains healthy and irritant-free. You will also be followed closely at our office. Most patients experience little pain during this time. Pain medication, antibiotics, and other aftercare products are prescribed for your care. For internal application treatments, recovery is basically the same as after a liposuction procedure, which is usually done at the same time.

You will see early improvement, but final results can take up to 6-9 months to manifest in full, and we can recommend the best non-surgical treatments to maintain your results for the long-term. For facial care, this may include injectable treatments, medical-grade skincare treatments, and a home care program. With internal treatments, results will also be final at around 6-9 months as the fat compartment and skin shrinks to your new, youthful shape.

Is Renuvion better than Botox?

Renuvion can produce longer-term and more transformative results than Botox because it treats the underlying volume loss in the skin. Botox, on the other hand, simply relaxes muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles. Some patients benefit from a treatment package of both. They each address different concerns.

How effective is Renuvion?

Why is it called plasma?

What happens during treatment?

Renuvion can be performed with a local anesthetic, depending on your unique treatment process. Once you're comfortable, a tiny incision is created and a handpiece is inserted under the deep layers of the skin. Simultaneously, a wand treats the skin from the outside. Once the area is treated, the incisions are closed, and you can return home.

Am I a good candidate for treatment?

Renuvion is a great option for patients with aging signs who are looking to rejuvenate their look but aren't yet ready for surgery or don't want a more invasive procedure. You should be in overall good health and have realistic expectations about what non-surgical skin tightening treatments can achieve as well.

Is Renuvion expensive?

What does Renuvion feel like?

You will be fully numb from a local anesthetic or under sedation or general anesthesia and should have minimal or no discomfort during the procedure.

Can you do Renuvion more than once?

Renuvion may be repeated; however, most patients do not require a second treatment to get the improvement they are seeking. Renuvion is a powerful minimally invasive tool for internal skin tightening and resurfacing.

What is the difference between laser resurfacing and Renuvion?

Renuvion can be used for internal skin tightening or external skin resurfacing. A Renuvion resurfacing typically provides more skin tightening than a laser procedure. Both treatments require expert technique and careful aftercare.

Should I massage after Renuvion?
