How does Renuvion work to tighten sagging skin?

For men and women who want to improve the firmness and texture of their skin, a revolutionary new treatment option called Renuvion is now available. Here, we break down this new technology and how it may help you achieve your aesthetic goals.

What is it?

FDA-approved for skin tightening, Renuvion combines the unique properties of helium plasma with proprietary radiofrequency (RF) energy to heat connective tissues under the skin and stimulate tissue contraction and the production of collagen. The process tightens and shrinks the underlying tissue, which tightens and firms skin, improving skin texture and smoothing out wrinkles.

Renuvion treats a variety of areas, including sagging cheeks, jowls and neck area. It also works well on the abdomen, arms, thighs, flanks, hips and buttocks.

How it works

Anesthesia may or may not be necessary, depending on what area you are having treated. During this outpatient treatment, a thin wand is inserted through small incisions around the target area, similar to liposuction. The energy is then applied underneath the skin, which immediately tightens the skin and stimulates collagen production for months. A typical treatment takes at least 30 minutes depending on the treatment area and number of areas being treated.


You will see that your skin is tighter and firmer after treatment, but your results will continue to improve over the next six to nine months thanks to increased collagen production. Most patients need one or two treatments to achieve desired results, which last up to five years with a good care.

Candidates for Renuvion

If you don’t want or are not a candidate for invasive cosmetic surgery procedures, Renuvion may be the long-awaited alternative you’ve been seeking. It provides dramatic results with lower inherent risks and faster recovery time than more-invasive surgery.
