At Ocean Drive Plastic Surgery in Vero Beach, FL, we provide an extensive range of surgical and medspa treatments in our plush and well-appointed facility.
Our expertise in Renuvion minimally-invasive arm lifts has made us a leading provider in the field, ensuring our patients receive outstanding care and exceptional aesthetic outcomes. We are dedicated to guiding you through every step of the process, starting with a comprehensive consultation.
Renuvion combines the benefits of RF (radiofrequency) and cold helium plasma to provide a powerful energy-based rejuvenation treatment.
Using a long, thin instrument inserted just below the skin, RF energy is delivered to the deep tissues in the treatment area, stimulating collagen production and resulting in thicker and firmer skin over time. Simultaneously, cold helium plasma is sent into the same area, and the tissue is cooled rapidly. This combination of RF and cold helium plasma allows for much higher temperatures to be reached with the RF, resulting in superior skin tightening and fat reduction outcomes.
Loose, sagging skin on the arms can cause embarrassment and low confidence.
You may not feel comfortable wearing certain clothing because of your loose skin. With a Renuvion minimally invasive arm lift Vero Beach patients can enjoy wearing sleeveless tops and swimsuits again and do it without undergoing surgery.
Renuvion benefits include:
This treatment is great for those with mild or moderate skin laxity and loose skin. Most often, our patients want to treat these issues in the upper arm area.
Great candidates for a minimally-invasive arm lift with Renuvion are in generally good health and have reasonable expectations for outcomes.
During a consultation, Vero Beach minimally invasive arm lift providers will review your health history, discuss your aesthetic goals, and perform a brief exam. We want to be sure every patient is well-informed about any procedure we recommend, so we will provide ample time to answer any questions and address any concerns you might have. Once we determine whether this method is a good option for you, we will put together a comprehensive and detailed treatment plan. To prepare for Renuvion, you will be asked to pause certain medications and avoid alcohol for several days.
A Renuvion minimally invasive arm lift is typically performed under general anesthesia or sedation as an outpatient procedure, so you will need to have someone available to drive you home. During the procedure, the Renuvion instrument will be inserted through tiny incisions in the arm. RF and cold helium plasma will work together to stimulate collagen production and begin providing immediate skin-tightening results. Often this treatment is completed in just 30 minutes to an hour.
Most patients are fully active again after about two to four days, and full recovery happens within a week in most cases. Even though there is minimal recovery, the healing process is important, so be sure to follow all post-procedure instructions. Some results will appear right away, but final outcomes will develop gradually over a few months.
At Ocean Drive Plastic Surgery, our team of doctors, nurses, aestheticians, and administrators boasts years of extensive education and experience.
They are fully equipped and ready to provide you with an exceptional experience from beginning to end. Our award-winning team is deeply committed to providing outstanding patient care and delivering top-notch aesthetic outcomes. At Ocean Drive, you can be confident that you are in the most capable hands.
The procedure itself is not painful since it is performed under either general or local anesthesia. You can expect some tenderness for a few days post-treatment.
Swelling and redness in the treatment area are possible side effects. Very rare side effects could include infection, anesthesia complications, or nerve damage.
While Renuvion is not permanent, it can last for as long as five years with proper maintenance and skin care.
Full recovery after Renuvion usually takes about one to two weeks, but many patients are able to resume normal activities after just a few days.
The cost of an arm lift with Renuvion will depend on the size of the treatment area and whether more than one session will be needed to achieve optimal results.
