What Is Renuvion?
Using a unique combination of helium plasma and radiofrequency (RF) energy, Renuvion quickly heats to the ideal temperature for tissue contraction, allowing you to achieve the best possible results in a short period of time. This minimally invasive procedure can be performed with a local anesthetic or while you’re asleep, depending on what you and your doctor feel is best.
During the procedure the Renuvion energy is applied underneath the skin, heating the collagen and other structures to the temperatures needed for optimal tissue contraction. This heating is done quickly and the tissue is cooled back to baseline in less than 1 second.
Gentle Tissue Contraction
Renuvion has been shown to provide controlled coagulation and therefore contraction of soft tissue. With Renuvion, you can achieve more optimal results than with liposuction alone. It can also be an appealing alternative for patients who are seeking a faster, minimally invasive procedure with less risk, faster recovery time, and less scarring.
The use of Renuvion does not require skin excision, and therefore is considered a minimally invasive procedure. The device is inserted under the skin through small entry points, which reduces post-operative discomfort and scarring.
The procedure is minimally invasive with no surgical removal of tissue. With the use of small entry points and minimal disruption of the tissue, patients experience less pain, discomfort, and downtime with Renuvion compared to more invasive procedures such as an abdominoplasty, brachioplasty or other procedures where large skin excisions are made. Additionally, studies have shown reduced pain and downtime after the use of Renuvion versus an alternative minimally invasive RF technology.
We know the aging process can’t be stopped, but through the use of energy devices, like Renuvion, we know it is possible to contract soft tissues and start the collagen rebuilding process known as neocollagensis. This process takes 6-9 months which is why effects will improve over time. Renuvion is one of the latest game-changing technologies with early data showing results lasting up to 2.5 years.
These images are examples of the Renuvion® device used as a tool for coagulation resulting in tissue contraction. As with any procedure, individual results may vary.

Risk associated with the use of Renuvion may include: unintended burns (deep or superficial), pneumothorax, scars, temporary or permanent nerve injury, pain, discomfort, gas buildup resulting in temporary and transient crepitus or pain, infection, hematoma, seroma; asymmetry and/or unacceptable cosmetic result. There may be additional risks associated with the use of other devices along with Renuvion and there may be an increased risk for patients who have undergone prior surgical or aesthetic procedures in the treatment area. As with any procedure, individual results may vary. As with all energy devices there are inherent risks associated with its use, refer to the IFU for further information.
