Before & After Results
Liposuction with Renuvion

How Does Renuvion Work?

Renuvion is a truly innovative, precise procedure that can produce outstanding results. After the Liposuction procedure, Renuvion is used as a finishing effect to tighten and tone the skin. How it works: The handheld device is inserted between the outer layer of skin and the underlying muscles. It delivers helium gas and radiofrequency (RF) energy, which converts to plasma. Renuvion quickly heats to the ideal temperature to shrink the skin tissue in the targeted areas, revealing a more toned and youthful appearance. Then the tissue is cooled in less than one second. This method safely and gently tightens loose skin on the stomach at a level unrivaled by laser, radiofrequency, and ultrasound treatments. Renuvion kickstarts the healing and collagen-producing process to further tighten the skin over 6-9 months.

Fortunately, alternatives like Renuvion can avoid an invasive tummy tuck surgery and the resulting hip-to-hip scar. Patients often look years younger and pounds lighter after the Liposuction with Renuvion procedure.

The Liposuction with Renuvion Procedure

This procedure completely avoids surgery. Only small nicks (“freckle indents”) in the skin (no stitches) and a tiny injection cannula are needed. Local anesthesia is administered, similar to what is provided at a dentist’s office. Recovery time is fairly short, with most patients back to work after 3-4 days.

Depending on the number and size of the areas, the procedure lasts approximately three hours, and steps include:

Some patients have larger or multiple areas to address, which can be effective with Liposuction and Renuvion. The procedure is not for everyone and is not a treatment for obesity or removing excess skin.

Frequently Asked Liposuction with Renuvion Questions

If you’re deciding between Renuvion and a surgical tummy tuck, both are very effective but approach skin laxity differently. The plasma energy in the Renuvion wand triggers collagen production, causing tighter and firmer skin. Loose belly skin is removed during the tummy tuck procedure and stitches are used, leaving a visible scar. Downtime is also longer after a tummy tuck procedure, and most patients recover over a long weekend with Renuvion.

The Recovery Process

The recovery process for the Liposuction with Renuvion procedure is fairly short, with most people only taking 3-4 days off from work. Mild associated discomfort and bruising are common. A compression garment must be worn over the areas where the fat was taken for one month. Recovery time is much shorter with Renuvion compared to more invasive procedures.

Lumen Center patients are carefully monitored post-procedure and at regular checkpoints for up to a year.
