Rejuvenate Your Skin With Twice the Powerful Energy for Twice the Results

Most skin tightening methods deliver results via one type of laser, needle, or wavelength and provide a single type of result. Now, with the revolutionary dual-action technology of Renuvion Skin Tightening Vero Beach providers at Ocean Drive Plastic surgery can tighten the skin and reduce fat deposits with immediate fiber contraction and long-lasting collagen production from the same treatment.

What is Renuvion Skin Tightening?

Using two energy-based treatments at the same time, the revolutionary new Renuvion J-Plasma system provides a double-action result. Renuvion uses radiofrequency (RF) energy and cold helium plasma. First, the RF heats tissues causing micro-damage resulting in gradual collagen production and, ultimately, firmer, thicker skin over time. At the same time, using the same instrument, cold helium plasma is activated in the area, which cools the deep tissues quickly and efficiently. A much higher and more effective treatment temperature can be reached with the RF due to this rapid cooling. This all means that more significant results can be seen from the RF over time, as well as immediate fiber contraction from the plasma. Renuvion is unique in this dual-action result.

Renuvion Skin Tightening vs. Microneedling

Both Renuvion and microneedling can rejuvenate the overall quality of your skin and offer a tightening effect. However, the approach and results do differ significantly. With microneedling, very fine needles are used to puncture the skin in the treatment area, causing microdamage in not only the tissue, but also the top layer of skin. Microneedling does not go into deeper layers and can be an issue if you are prone to acne or other skin-surface problems. With Renuvion, the top layer of skin is not affected, while deep tissues are treated to provide restoration from the inside out.

Benefits of Renuvion Skin Tightening

Bright, rejuvenated skin and reduced fat deposits can not only provide confidence, but can also save time from a long skin care regimen.

Renuvion offers a minimally-invasive, highly effective way to get the skin you’ve been wanting and that you deserve. Renuvion benefits include:

  • Firmer, tighter skin
  • Smoother skin texture
  • Reduced or eliminated fat deposits
  • Little to no downtime
  • Minimally invasive

Where does Renuvion work for me?

Renuvion can be used during any surgical procedure to tighten skin. The most common areas of use at Ocean Drive are:

  1. Scar-free Arm Lift - Standard surgical techniques require a long vertical scar along the arms to reduce skin. With Renuvion, use of this technique is largely avoided, as the skin tightening technology can provide a result similar to surgery without any long noticeable scar.
  2. Neck Lifting - Just as popular with men as with women, this procedure is for patients that want a more ideal, lifted, tighter neck without significant downtime. This procedure only requires small incisions that disappear in days to weeks. Use of this technology allows for remarkable reduction of fat, excess skin, and as well tightens the superficial fascia of the neck. Minimal discomfort and minimal downtime with this approach as compared to open surgical neck lifts.
  3. Thigh Lifting - Similar to arm lifts, most thigh lift techniques require large, noticeable incisions. With Renuvion, we are able to create remarkable reductions in excess skin and fat without the need for long, noticeable incisions.
  4. Abdominal tightening - This is the most common area for Renuvion. Use of this technology in conjunction with power assist liposuction can provide remarkable results to your abdomen, and your lower back. This procedure markedly tightens and reduces the volume of skin while simultaneously reducing fat stores in a permanent fashion. Renuvion is most commonly employed with 360degree liposuction, as use of this device around the entire abdomen and lower back can provide nearly the same result as a surgical body lift.
  5. Upper Back Fat - Our most common use of Renuvion in women is arm lifting in combination with upper back fat reduction. Using a few small, subcentieter incisions, Drs. Chim and Durkin are able to markedly reduce the fat behind your back, and simultaneously tighten your skin. This provides a good, durable, long term result, and again, no visible scarring!

Am I a candidate for Renuvion Skin Tightening?

Great candidates for Renuvion skin tightening are those who want to address skin laxity and are in generally good health. Several areas of the body can be treated with Renuvion, and if you are looking for smoother, firmer skin in any of these areas, you are likely a good candidate for this procedure. Rejuvenate the skin in your:

  • Forehead and eye area
  • Neck, jawline, and jowls
  • Décolletage/chest
  • Breasts, underarm “pooch,” and back bra line
  • Upper arms
  • Stomach and lower back
  • Thighs and hips

Consultation and Preparation

A Vero Beach Renuvion skin tightening consultation with Ocean Drive includes a meeting with one of our doctors and medspa staff, as well as a complementary Reveal Camera® Skin Analysis to scan your skin, determine the quality, and pinpoint concerns. This helps us to customize your Renuvion treatments. During your consultation for Renuvion skin tightening Vero Beach providers will also provide preparatory information and cover what exactly will take place during your appointment.

The Renuvion procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia and sedation but sometimes under general anesthesia. Before the treatment starts, the skin is cleansed, and the treatment area is marked. Then, the dual-energy treatment is delivered right below the skin with a specialized tool which is inserted through a very small incision. After the tool is placed under the skin, both RF and cold helium plasma are emitted, and the transformation of your skin begins. Usually, the entire treatment takes about one hour to one and a half hours.

Results, Recovery, and Aftercare

After the sedation and numb feeling wear off, most patients experience some swelling and tenderness that should resolve on their own after a few hours. Depending on the treatment area, your Vero Beach Renuvion provider will determine what the ideal level and time frame is for rest and recuperation. The vast majority of our patients are back to full capacity within a week or less. You will see some immediate results due to the cold plasma, but gradual results will also slowly become more apparent over weeks and months.

Frequently Asked Questions

The Renuvion procedure is performed under sedation or general anesthesia, so no pain is felt during the treatment. Afterward, some tenderness may be felt in the treatment area.

Localized swelling and redness are common side effects that can occur with Renuvion. Possible but rare risks like infection or nerve damage can occur but are highly unlikely with a licensed professional.

Renuvion is considered semi-permanent since the results can last up to 5 years or more especially with great skin care. Usually just 1-2 treatments will provide long-lasting results.

This treatment can only address small fat deposits in specific areas but is not a method for full-body weight loss.

The cost of Renuvion varies depending on what area of the body will be treated and to what extent.
