Non-surgical tissue contraction from neck to knees for patients in Nashville & Middle Tennessee

Non-Surgical Tissue Contracture

Renuvion is a minimally-invasive procedure that contracts tissues up to 60% without surgery. It can be applied to abdomen, back, flanks, thighs, arms, neck & more. Using radio frequency energy powered by helium plasma, Renuvion applies bursts of highly controlled heat to the underlying tissues to achieve tighter, firmer skin. It is an ideal alternative to more invasive surgery for patients with only moderately saggy skin, and it achieves greatly improved results over non-invasive alternatives like CoolSculpting.

Dr. John Rosdeutscher, Chief Medical Officer of NuBody Concepts, has achieved excellent body contouring results for patients in Nashville and Middle Tennessee by combining Renuvion with power-assisted liposuction. Dr. Rosdeutscher is a double board-certified plastic surgeon with 25 years of experience in body contouring and cosmetic surgery.

Each patient is unique. Our plastic surgeon will meet with you in a consultation to develop a personalized treatment plan.

Frequently Asked Questions

Ever since we’ve started offering Renuvion to our patients in combination with liposuction, we have seen the most impressive skin tightening results we’ve ever been able to achieve short of surgery. If you have moderately loose and sagging skin, Renuvion is an excellent investment that gives you results close to a tummy tuck, arm lift, or thigh lift (and even facelift), without the downtime or the scars. Learn what to expect from Renuvion.

If you experience moderate sagging or a crepe-like appearance of the skin that is mainly caused by age-related skin laxity, you are a good candidate for Renuvion. Candidates should also have a BMI of 30 or below, be non-smokers, and be in generally good health. Candidates with BMIs of 30-38 may qualify but are likely to see better results with a tummy tuck. Read about skin tightening candidates.

Renuvion is great for any area from the neck to the knees – neck/chin, male breasts, abdomen, flanks, bra rolls, back, arms, thighs. You can have multiple areas treated in one visit. Most popular areas are abdomen, back/flanks, arms, and neck.

That depends greatly on the number of areas you are having treated. You can expect 2-3 hours overall. Renuvion itself does not take much time, approximately 5-15 minutes per area depending on size. The “tumescing” (applying anesthesia under the skin) and liposuction (recommended in most cases) take up most of the time of a Renuvion procedure.

You will see results immediately after your Renuvion procedure. You may experience some bruising and/or swelling for the first week due to the combined liposuction. At 2-3 weeks, you will see the biggest difference. As more tissues coagulate over time, your results will continue to improve for up to 6-9 months.

In clinical studies Renuvion has shown to achieve up to 60% skin contraction. A surgical removal (excision) of skin will always be more effective in eliminating all of the unwanted fat and skin, with immediate results. However, many patients hesitate to undergo surgery with its longer recovery and scars – especially on your upper arms or thighs where they cannot be entirely hidden. Renuvion is an excellent non-surgical skin tightening alternative to tummy tucks, arm lifts, and thigh lifts. It is ideal for patients who won’t see enough results with liposuction due to decreased skin laxity, but who don’t want surgery. With Renuvion, you will still see a big immediate difference and continuing improvements for 6-9 months. Compare skin tightening to a tummy tuck.

As with other minimally-invasive procedures, your physical recovery after Renuvion will take about 1-2 days. Patients can typically resume regular activities the next day as tolerated and are advised to wait a week before resuming exercise. It will take several weeks for the small incisions for the insertion of the wand are healed and begin to fade, so that you may want to give it some time before wearing a bikini.

Renuvion is the ideal procedure for a non-surgical facelift. Particularly on the neck and jowls, Renuvion can very effectively change your appearance to give you back a well-defined jawline. Other areas of the face, like the eyes, still require more traditional types of surgeries to be lifted, or you may find that dermal fillers such as Juvederm can be effective there too. But as a saggy neck is often one of the main signs (and complaints) of middle age, a Renuvion treatment will take years off your appearance.

Technically it is a form of liposuction, with the official name of Radio-Frequency Assisted Lipolysis (RFAL). The official term is “tissue coagulation.” However, unlike liposuction, Renuvion does not use physical force to break up and remove fat. It uses targeted bursts of heat energy combined with helium plasma to damage or “coagulate” fatty tissue in underlying cells. This process contracts the skin. It is most effective when used in conjunction with liposuction for maximum fat removal and skin tightening.

Yes. The two use a very similar technology to tighten skin, applying targeted heat powered by radio frequency to tissues under the skin. Both are used as non-surgical alternatives to procedures such as tummy tuck, thigh lift, or arm lift. BodyTite has been around slightly longer, and Renuvion uses helium plasma for even faster heating of the probe, which BodyTite does not. Otherwise they are very similar.
