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 a tighter skin. It is an ideal alternative to more invasive surgery for patients with moderately saggy skin. It is also an excellent alternative to CoolSculpting.

Renuvion is available in combination with liposuction to patients in the Greater Nashville area at the NuBody Concepts Brentwood location. It is performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon with over 20 years of experience in body contouring and cosmetic surgery. Ask about optional PRO-NOX Pain management for added comfort.

Each patient is unique. What your treatment will look like is determined by you and the plastic surgeon who you will meet with in a personal consultation.

Frequently Asked Questions

Renuvion is great for any area from the neck to the knees. You can have multiple areas treated in one visit. Patients are particularly happy with results on 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.

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.
