SmartLipo with Renuvion® Skin Tightening in Philadelphia, PA

The non-surgical tummy tuck. “Shrink-wrap” for your skin. These descriptions convey the smooth skin tightening effect Renuvion® delivers. Paired with SmartLipo, a superior fat reduction technique, Renuvion can maximize your results. This revolutionary, minimally invasive skin tightening procedure shrinks and sculpts sagging skin – all without a large incision, extended downtime, and the complications of a surgical procedure. Just dramatic, life-changing results to remove excess fat and tone your skin.

How Does Renuvion Work?

Renuvion is a truly innovative, precise procedure that can produce outstanding results. After the SmartLipo 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 SmartLipo with Renuvion procedure.

The SmartLipo with Renuvion Procedure

The SmartLipo with Renuvion Skin Tightening 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:

Candidates for SmartLipo with Renuvion Skin Tightening

SmartLipo with Renuvion has been performed on men and women, ranging in age from 20-70+, who want to reduce fat and improve their skin quality. The procedure is ideal for anyone who has:

Some patients have larger or multiple areas to address, which can be effective with SmartLipo 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.

At Lumen, you and Dr. Kwak can discuss the difference between Renuvion and a tummy tuck. He will evaluate the areas of concern and help you understand the benefits and limitations of each procedure. Dr. Kwak takes the time to listen to his patients and develop a customized plan to achieve your best possible results.

During your consultation with Dr. Andrew Kwak, founder of The Lumen Center, he will listen to your concerns and learn about your body goals. He will ask you about your general health, medical history, and allergies. Then Dr. Kwak will examine the areas of concern and take photos to create a customized treatment plan. He will answer any questions you have, discuss what you can expect and how the SmartLipo and Renuvion technology works. If you decide to move forward, you will receive detailed instructions on preparing for your procedure and what to expect during and after the treatment.

The SmartLipo with Renuvion procedure is performed as an outpatient procedure in The Lumen Center office in Bryn Mawr, PA. 

Doctors often report noticeable results to the skin texture after the procedure. And the results will keep getting better! Full results are expected over the next 6-9 months as the body goes through the healing process. You’ll experience additional tightening and improvements in skin quality.

I could not be any more happier with the hair transplant I received. This week marks a year since my procedure and the results are remarkable. Not going to lie, I am a very impatient person and pretty skeptical, but the team calmed me down, and sure enough, I saw the results I was dreaming of. I started to significantly lose my hair since I was 18 and as a 25 year old, the amount I lost at my age destroyed my confidence and my ability to even look in a mirror or take pictures with people. It was eating me alive. The Lumen Center team restored my hair and my outlook on life. I am incredibly grateful and if anyone else is considering a hair transplant, I highly recommend this facility. Take a look at the results for yourself!

I just had a second procedure at Lumen Center (Smart lipo). Dr Kwak and his team were so knowledgeable and explained the process from start to finish. I was somewhat nervous but I'm so happy with the outcome. Fitting into some old outfits gave me a real boost of self esteem. I can't say enough about their remarkable compassion and encouragement during each follow up visit as well. The results exceeded my expectations!

I started out at the Lumen Center with the Smart Lipo procedure & I keep on coming back. The staff is so welcoming as you walk through the door. Every time I call with questions, I get the answers I need. I felt nervous before going into my procedure and the staff was calming and understanding, which made me very comfortable before, during, and after surgery. I am thrilled with my results. My personal results went from a size X-Large to a Medium with continued diet and exercise. Being diagnosed with PCOS, I have had stubborn fat that 10 miles a day wasn’t taking off. This procedure eliminated that stubborn fat for a clean slate and an easier way to maintain a healthy weight. I bought a package of the Lipo Mino wellness shots to boost my energy and metabolism and it was a great addition. Dr. Kwak artistically created curves that have enhanced my body and I get compliments all of the time. I now use The Lumen Center for all of my botox & wellness injections too. Dr. Kwak has truly changed my life and I cannot thank him enough!

The Recovery Process

The recovery process for the SmartLipo 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.
