As we age, a loss of collagen in our skin can lead to sagging, which can also lead to a more noticeable appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Skin tightening is a transformative treatment for achieving a more youthful glow in your appearance.
At Revalla Plastic Surgery and Medical Aesthetics, we are proud to offer patients a new, minimally-invasive skin tightening procedure that not only results in long-lasting, firmer skin but also stimulates the production of collagen, resulting in the appearance of rejuvenated-looking skin.
Whether you are a mother, getting ready for that high school reunion or simply just want to get rid of that loose crepey skin that haunts us all as we age, Renuvion® can help!
Renuvion® remodels the top layer of skin and tightens underlying layers for a smoother and lifted appearance. It is the only device that uses helium and radio frequency waves to create a stream of plasma energy that heats the tissue to the ideal temperature for optimal tissue contraction. This technology delivers precise tightening and toning that is unmatched to any other device.
What Are the Benefits of Skin Tightening?
Skin tightening can provide multiple benefits to patients interested in rejuvenating their body and skin. These benefits can include:
- Tightening the skin
- Eliminating areas of sagging skin
- Improving skin laxity
- Improving skin tone and texture
- Improving firmness in the skin
- Providing a youthful appearance
- Reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Slowing down the aging process
Who Is the Ideal Candidate for Skin Tightening?
Ideal candidates for skin tightening and Renuvion are patients who are in overall good health and are within at least 30 percent of their ideal weight. Maintaining a stable weight before and after your procedure will prevent changes in the appearance of your results post-treatment. Most patients who seek out skin tightening are between the ages of 30 to 65. Because skin tightening is an excellent procedure for stimulating collagen, we recommend that patients begin their treatments before significant collagen loss occurs.
How Long Does It Take to Recover from Renuvion Treatment?
Most discomfort, pain, swelling, and other common side effects from the Renuvion treatment will disappear within one to two days. However, a full recovery from skin tightening can take up to three weeks before your skin returns to feeling completely normal. During this recovery period, patients must be gentle with the treated areas of their body and refrain from intense physical activity. While most patients can return to their normal routines within two days, prioritizing rest during this time can improve your healing process.
How Long Will the Results from My Skin Tightening Treatment Last?
Results from a skin tightening treatment using Renuvion are designed to last up to five years. Many patients only require one to two treatments to achieve their desired results. After this, additional treatment is rarely needed because the results are long-lasting. However, it’s important to remember that maintaining a stable weight and investing in a skincare routine that will keep your skin and body looking youthful can have a significant impact on how long your results will last.
