What is Renuvion?
Renuvion is a medical device that combines helium plasma and a proprietary radiofrequency (RF) energy. Doctors use Renuvion in a variety of procedures to stimulate tissue contraction by carefully heating connective tissues directly beneath the skin.
How does Renuvion work?
Renuvion delivers even, controlled energy with exceptional precision. Helium plasma and RF energy are emitted simultaneously through a slender hand-held wand to provide an even application just below the skin’s surface. This technique provides a dramatic yet gentle effect on tissue. The treatment results in a contraction of the soft tissue that doctors often report is noticeable immediately after the procedure. The results will continue to improve over the next 6-9 months as the body goes through the healing process.
How long has Renuvion been in use by medical professionals?
The Renuvion technology started development over 20 years ago under the J-Plasma brand. This technology has been adopted in a wide variety of surgical applications due to its demonstrated ability to safely and effectively direct energy towards a targeted area while minimizing thermal spread to adjacent tissues. In recent years, cosmetic specialists including plastic surgeons, facial plastic surgeons and physicians have found new applications of Renuvion through its unique capacity to provide controlled heat to tissue. Many of these experts are calling it one of the most exciting advancements they’ve seen in the last 20 years.
How does Renuvion add value for patients?
Renuvion offers a long-awaited alternative to more invasive cosmetic surgical procedures. Ideal for patients who don’t want or are not candidates for excisional surgery, doctors use Renuvion to provide dramatic results with lower inherent risks and recovery time than more-invasive surgery.
What should patients expect during a Renuvion procedure?
During a Renuvion treatment, a thin wand is inserted at small entry points at the target area (similar to liposuction) and the energy is applied underneath the skin.
