You can choose from numerous surgical and non-surgical methods for tightening your skin. Now those options include Renuvion®, the revolutionary skin tightening tool that works alone or with other treatments to give you immediate and long-term results. Dr. Karen Leong uses Renuvion® during many procedures to significantly improve your results.
What is Renuvion® Skin Tightening?
Renuvion® is a revolution in aesthetics, and Dr. Leong uses it with procedures ranging from liposuction to facelifts. It uses a proprietary combination of radiofrequency (RF) energy and cold helium plasma to tighten the skin. Renuvion® causes immediate tightening of the skin’s support structure, making skin look firmer and more lifted. At the same time, it triggers new collagen production, so your skin becomes even tighter over the following months.
How to Tighten Skin with Renuvion®
The combination of RF energy and cold helium plasma makes Renuvion® unique. Dr. Leong uses Renuvion® to improve the results of procedures like liposuction. She will insert a cannula through a tiny incision or one that has already been made. This cannula delivers bursts of energy that heat the tissue for a fraction of a second before cooling it to prevent injury.
The heat causes the collagen fibers supporting the skin to contract. This produces immediate skin tightening, so people see results right away. The energy also triggers cells to produce more collagen, improving your skin’s support network and making skin even firmer and more resilient. This skin tightening can reduce or eliminate loose skin alone or as part of a more comprehensive procedure.
Renuvion® and Other Procedures
Dr. Leong uses Renuvion® with her liposuction to firm and tighten the loose skin that can occur after fat removal. The Renuvion® cannula can use the tiny incisions already used for liposuction, and the contraction of collagen fibers means that the treated area not only looks slimmer but also more sculpted. Renuvion® also excels in face and neck procedures to provide firmer, more youthful-looking skin and more defined facial contours.
What is Recovery Like From Renuvion® Skin Tightening?
For most people, recovery from the primary procedure will take longer than recovery from Renuvion®. When Renuvion® is used alone, people may experience soreness and minor bruising that will fade within a week or two. Recovery time can take several weeks for a procedure like liposuction or a facelift. Because Renuvion® protects the skin from injury, it requires minimal recovery on its own.
Am I a Good Candidate for Renuvion® Skin Tightening?
Most people make good candidates for Renuvion®, especially when Dr. Leong uses it as part of another procedure. If you have been cleared for liposuction or another procedure, you will probably also make a good candidate for Renuvion®.
