Renuvion uses two distinct technologies simultaneously to both reduce small fat deposits and tighten the skin in the legs. If your aesthetic goal is smooth, firm legs without invasive surgery, Renuvion is an extremely effective way to get what you’ve been looking for.
This revolutionary method builds collagen for a gradual and long-term skin-tightening effect.
Ocean Drive Plastic Surgery in Vero Beach, FL, offers a wide variety of surgical and medspa treatments for our patients.
As a premier provider of Renuvion minimally-invasive leg lifts, we have the expertise and knowledge to provide outstanding patient care and excellent aesthetic results with this procedure. We can help guide you through each step, starting with a comprehensive consultation, expertly performing the procedure, and directing you through recovery.
Using RF (radiofrequency) and cold helium plasma together, Renuvion harnesses the power of these energy-based rejuvenation techniques to work together. The wand-like instrument is inserted just under the skin and delivers RF energy to the underlying deep tissues. This stimulates natural collagen production and causes the skin to become thicker and more firm over time. At the same time, the instrument sends cold helium plasma into the area to provide rapid cooling.
This intense and simultaneous cooling effect means that much higher temperatures can be achieved with the RF for better skin tightening and fat reduction results.
If you are dealing with sagging, loose skin on your legs, looking for a fix can be challenging.
Often, exercise or topical treatments simply are not effective, but surgery is a significant commitment. A minimally-invasive leg lift with Renuvion is a fantastic option for those who want something in between. Whether you want to address drooping skin or small fat deposits in your legs due to aging, weight loss, or other reasons, Renuvion might be the solution.
Some Renuvion leg lift benefits include:
Typically our Vero Beach minimally invasive leg lift patients are looking to treat their inner or outer thighs and have mild to moderate skin laxity. Since this procedure does involve anesthesia, patients should be in generally good health, non-smokers, and have no history of anesthesia allergy.
We want to ensure that each of our patients receives personalized care and a customized treatment plan. At a consultation, we will discuss your health history and aesthetic goals to determine if this procedure is the best option for you. There is little prep involved for Renuvion, but we will ask that you avoid blood thinning medications, including over-the-counter, for about a week, and alcohol for at least 24 hours.
This is an outpatient procedure that usually only takes about an hour. It is sometimes performed under general anesthesia, but sedation and local anesthesia can also be used. Your provider will determine which is best for you during your consultation. Once you are sedated, a tiny incision will be made, and the Renuvion tool will be inserted under the skin in the treatment area to stimulate collagen and tighten the skin.
You may feel some tenderness in the treatment area for a few days, but most patients recover completely within about a week. Because of the dual technology, patients will see some immediate results, however, as collagen production continues, final results are typically seen over the course of about six months and can last for up to five years or more.
With decades of combined education and experience, our award-winning team of doctors, nurses, aestheticians, and administrators are prepared and equipped to give you an outstanding experience from start to finish.

This technique using Renuvion is usually performed under general anesthesia, so you won’t feel any pain during the procedure. You may feel some soreness for a few days afterward.
ReNuvion is not permanent but can last up to five years or more with the correct maintenance and skin care.
Swelling and redness are minor, fairly common side effects for many patients. With a trained professional, serious risks with Renuvion are uncommon but, in very rare cases, could include infection or nerve damage.
The initial recovery period is typically about two to five days depending on the patient. Most swelling or bruising should be fully resolved within about two weeks.
The full cost of a Renuvion leg lift will be determined based on the scope of the treatment and if any follow-up treatments are recommended.
