Renuvion Skin Tightening

Sagging or loose skin can be a problem for many people. Whether due to age, weight loss, or pregnancy, sagging skin can cause body image issues.

Renuvion Skin Tightening treatment is an incredibly innovative procedure that allows you to tighten the skin with little downtime, small incisions, and very little discomfort.

What is Renuvion Skin Tightening?

Renuvion Skin Tightening is a minimally invasive procedure that combines helium plasma and radiofrequency (RF) energy to stimulate and contract tissues beneath the surface of the skin. The helium plasma and the RF energy are placed under the skin using a wand device and provide even and continuous heat to the tissues. 

This treatment can work in the following areas:

  • Lower face and neck
  • Upper face
  • Arms
  • Thighs
  • Knees
  • Buttocks
  • Abdomen

I was treated better and with more respect than in any medical setting, I have previously experienced. They were compassionate, knowledgeable, and informative. I strongly recommend Dr. Andrews and his very capable team! – Sophia Joseph

I could not have asked for a better experience with Dr. Andrews Plastic Surgery. I had a mommy makeover which was quite an extensive surgery but never felt worried or concerned before or after the procedure. Dr. Andrews as well as all of the staff were friendly, professional, and responsive to all my needs. Nurses Stormy and Emma and Surgical Tech Natalie were great at my pre-op appointments, the day of surgery, and my post-op appointments. My results are amazing, better than I could have ever imagined! I 100% would recommend Dr. Andrews Plastic Surgery to my friends and family! – Heather W

I went to see Dr. Andrews recently. The entire staff was welcoming and friendly. Dr. Andrews took the time to explain to me my options and answered all my questions. I can’t wait to have my procedure. – Aleigha De Leon


The Renuvion Skin Tightening Procedure

As with most cosmetic procedures, anesthesia is administered before anything occurs. Once that kicks in, Dr. Andrews will make a small incision in the treatment area and then insert the Renuvion wand into that incision. The plasma energy is then applied directly to the tissues, heating up the area and tightening the skin. Simultaneously, it also stimulates collagen production. The helium gas will also be emitted to cool the tissue, so you never have to worry about burning. 

After the treatment and in the weeks following it, your skin will continue to produce collagen, providing further improvements.  


After your procedure, you can expect to feel some mild discomfort. redness, and swelling. That swelling can last for a few weeks after treatment. You’ll be given a compression garment to wear for the first 72 hours. 

As for going back to your normal routine, you’ll want to limit your activities and rest for the first week after Renuvion treatment. You can return to week during the second week of recovery, and Dr. Andrews will likely clear you for all your normal activities after three weeks.
