SmartLipo with Renuvion® Skin Tightening in Philadelphia, PA

A non-surgical tummy tuck with Renuvion Skin Tightening is considered “shrink-wrap” for your skin. While SmartLipo is a superior fat reduction technique, Renuvion can take your results to the next level. This groundbreaking, minimally invasive skin tightening procedure shrinks and sculpts sagging skin without the need for a large incision, extended downtime, or the risks of surgery. Renuvion can remove your excess fat and tone your skin in no time.

How Does Renuvion Work?

Renuvion is a cutting-edge, precise procedure that can deliver exceptional results. It’s frequently used as a finishing effect after the SmartLipo procedure to tighten and tone the skin.

How does Renuvion work? The handheld device is inserted between the skin’s outer layer and the muscles beneath it. It produces plasma by delivering helium gas and radiofrequency (RF) energy. Renuvion heats up quickly to the perfect temperature, shrinking the skin tissue in the targeted areas to reveal a more toned and youthful appearance. The tissue is then cooled in under a second. This method tightens loose skin on the stomach in a way that laser, radiofrequency, and ultrasound treatments can’t match. In addition, Renuvion jumpstarts the healing and collagen-producing processes, tightening the skin even more over the course of 6-9 months.

The main advantage of Renuvion is that it avoids an invasive tummy tuck surgery and the resulting hip-to-hip scar. After the SmartLipo with Renuvion procedure, patients can achieve their ideal shape and a maximum tightening effect.

The SmartLipo with Renuvion Procedure

Surgery is completely avoided with the SmartLipo with Renuvion Skin Tightening procedure. There are only a few small nicks in the skin (no stitches) and a tiny injection cannula required. Local anesthesia is used in the same way that it is in a dentist’s office. The recovery period is relatively short, with most patients returning to work within 3-4 days.

The procedure takes about three hours, depending on the number and size of the treatment areas, and it includes the following steps:

Frequently Asked Liposuction with Renuvion Questions

Renuvion and a surgical tummy tuck are both very effective, but they take different approaches to skin laxity. The Renuvion wand’s plasma energy stimulates collagen production, resulting in tighter, firmer skin. During the tummy tuck procedure, loose belly skin is removed and stitches are used, leaving a visible scar. Tummy tuck recovery time is also longer, with most patients recovering over a long weekend with Renuvion.
