Even with a consistent daily skincare routine, your skin will gradually age and lose its suppleness. Lines, wrinkles and laxity define maturing skin. These physical characteristics aren’t desirable and certainly aren’t reflective of how you feel inside — youthful, vibrant and energetic.

It’s not your fault. The natural progression of time takes a toll on the body, causing it to produce less of the building blocks that maintain its vitality: collagen and elastin. As young as our mid 20s, these crucial ingredients are produced less frequently, eventually resulting in that dull and tired appearance that’s frustrating to look at.

We understand. No one wants to look older than they feel. Fortunately, cosmetic technology advancements have given us ways to restore the natural components that maintain your skin’s health without invasive surgery.

Renuvion is a ground-breaking skin tightening technology that does just that. Using the power of helium gas and radiofrequency (RF) energy, Renuvion can help smooth and improve your skin by restoring your body’s production of collagen and elastin. If you’re a resident of El Paso, TX, and are struggling with your body image because of loose skin, please contact Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Centers of El Paso at 915-855-7800 to schedule a consultation.

What Is Skin Tightening With Renuvion?

Renuvion is a nonsurgical treatment that utilizes controlled heating for skin tightening. The treatment works by delivering a combination of helium gas and radiofrequency energy — which forms cold plasma energy — to the underside of the skin via a cannula (thin tube). Once the cannula is in place, a precise stream of plasma is released. The treatment’s heating and cooling effect causes collagen to contract and the skin to tighten. The unique procedure rejuvenates your soft tissues instantly with little downtime, no incisions or general anesthesia, and no visible scars.

The combined heating and cooling effects of Renuvion means that it’s able to heat skin tissues at a much higher temperature than other skin tightening procedures. In just one treatment, severe sagging can be improved drastically. Renuvion can be used to address skin laxity in a number of areas on the body. The cutting-edge technology can be used on the stomach, back, thighs, breasts, arms and legs. The device is also used on certain areas of the face, including around the eyes, the mouth and the jawline.

Renuvion’s effects are long-lasting, as it causes your skin to begin producing more collagen and elastin naturally. This treatment can be a fantastic option for those who desire firmer, smoother facial or body features without major surgery.

Who Is the Ideal Renuvion Candidate?

Renuvion is an excellent treatment for men and women who have mild to moderate skin laxity. While Renuvion can create dramatic results, it’s important to note that the treatment isn’t recommended for patients who have excess skin due to pregnancy or significant weight loss. Optimal results aren’t possible for those with a substantial amount of loose, hanging skin.

During an initial consultation with Dr. Reynolds or Dr. Jabor, your skin laxity concerns will be reviewed and your doctor will decide if Renuvion is an appropriate treatment for you. If your doctor believes Renuvion is not in your best interest, he may recommend alternative treatments, such as an arm lift or abdominoplasty, that he believes will give you better results.

Patients considering other treatments at the Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Centers of El Paso, such as liposuction, should think about having Renuvion performed in conjunction. This combination of procedures can achieve optimal body contouring results. While the liposuction removes unwanted fat, Renuvion promotes skin retraction so your new contours are beautifully firm and smooth.

What to Expect During Your Renuvion Treatment

During the Renuvion treatment, local anesthesia will be given to help mitigate any pain. Dr. Reynolds or Dr. Jabor will then create a small incision in the targeted area and insert the Renuvion cannula just beneath the skin. While there, helium gas passes through the small tube and converts into plasma energy, which causes the skin and collagen fibers to contract. The thermal heating energy also stimulates collagen production by accelerating the body’s natural healing response. The Renuvion device will be moved back and forth evenly along the treated area to produce a smooth, consistent result.

Throughout the treatment, Dr. Reynolds or Dr. Jabor will control the temperature, timing and location of the Renuvion device to ensure a safe and effective treatment. A Renuvion session takes approximately one hour, and patients can return home immediately afterward.

After Your Renuvion Treatment

Soon after your treatment, the treated skin will appear smoother. The appearance of lines, wrinkles and sagging will be reduced, and skin tone and texture will be enhanced. The treatment causes no damage to surrounding tissues, so side effects are typically minimal. For some patients, swelling, peeling or redness may be noticeable in the treatment area for up to two weeks after the procedure. Despite this, patients can typically resume normal activities and return to work in seven to ten days.

The improvements will continue to develop over the next six to nine months. As time passes, your body will continue to produce more collagen, which will further your results. New collagen formation over time will make your skin tighter, firmer and healthier for long-lasting rejuvenation. Your results may last for years, so long as you take care of your skin. Daily sunscreen use, ample application of moisturizers and healthy eating can help prolong your results.
