Skin Tightening Treatment with Renuvion
Renuvion is a minimally invasive treatment designed to tighten saggy skin from the inside out. Cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Jared Mallalieu uses this technology to precisely treat droopy skin on the upper arms, abdomen, thighs, above the knees, the neck, and the jowls. Tightening occurs when helium plasma energy is introduced through tiny incisions under the skin with a small catheter. Heating causes the tissues to contract and tighten. Most people notice a change in skin tightness right after procedure but it also improves over time. This effective and exciting care is FDA approved for skin tightening, and it offers a way to tone areas of your body in a short period of time. The Laser Center of Maryland is the first in the area to have this technology.
Before & After
Can Renuvion be used for more than skin tightening?
Yes. Dr. VanAntwerp uses it externally for facial resurfacing. The nature of the helium plasma energy works to remove sun damage and wrinkles and to tighten skin. Recovery time is longer when used for full resurfacing but the results are dramatic. Facial resurfacing does require light general anesthesia due to treatment time.
Does treatment that goes under the skin require being put to sleep?
No. Most people receive tumescent local anesthetic which keeps you very comfortable. Local anesthetic has a much lower risk factor. However, if you are having multiples areas done the doctor might advise anesthesia. The treatment is really quite easy and comfortable.
