If you would like to achieve a firmer, tighter abdominal area, you might have considered a tummy tuck. But if you’re not ready for surgery, Renuvion might be the perfect alternative for you.

What is Renuvion?

Renuvion has a reputation as a “non-invasive tummy tuck.” This treatment is very popular with patients who are dealing with sagging skin in the abdominal area because it can achieve 50% to 80% of what a tummy tuck surgery can provide.

Renuvion is a minimally invasive skin tightening treatment that requires only pinhole-sized incisions to achieve dramatic results. This cutting-edge technology combines helium gas and radiofrequency energy to generate a substance called cold helium plasma. Cold helium plasma is applied under the skin, which causes the skin to contract naturally. This provides a significant boost to the production of collagen, which is responsible for the youthful, elastic, firm quality of your skin.

With Renuvion, you can achieve the tighter, more supple look you want to achieve without a surgical procedure, long downtime or scarring.

What areas can Renuvion treat?

Besides the tummy, Renuvion is a versatile treatment that can be used on quite a number of areas:

  • Abdominal area, including love handles
  • Buttocks
  • Knees
  • Thighs
  • Upper arms

Benefits of Renuvion

  • Produces significantly tighter, firmer skin
  • Extremely small incisions
  • Minimally invasive
  • Short procedure time
  • Stimulates natural collagen production
  • Only one treatment is needed
  • Full recovery within three weeks
  • Continuing results over time
  • Short downtime

How does a Renuvion treatment work?

Before your Renuvion treatment, Dr. Larson will administer local anesthesia. Once the area is numbed, he will begin the treatment. The procedure time is approximately 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated.

Renuvion achieves results with a combination of helium and radiofrequency. The radiofrequency ionizes the helium gas and is converted into cold helium plasma. Cold helium plasma flows through a thin cannula tube, which Dr. Larson inserts into the skin. When the cold helium plasma comes into contact with the tissues, the collagen fibers contract and pull tighter. This significantly boosts collagen production.

After your treatment, you will wear a compression garment to help reduce swelling. Many patients can return to their regular light activities the next day, but you should be prepared to rest as needed for about 5-7 days.
