Renuvion offers a minimally invasive solution for addressing skin-tightening concerns by restoring elasticity and firmness. With its innovative technology, Renuvion provides a safe and effective alternative to traditional surgical procedures for skin tightening. Renowned plastic surgeon Leonard Miller, MD, FACS, FRCS of Boston, MA, offers Renuvion to all patients seeking a less-invasive solution to these signs of aging.

What is Renuvion?

In the past, the only reliable method of tightening the skin was to perform invasive plastic surgery. Renuvion, a cutting-edge development in cosmetic medicine, presents a solution that eliminates undesirable skin elements while concurrently tightening the skin.

Renuvion is a cutting-edge treatment that uses radiofrequency waves and helium gas to tighten the skin without causing burns or damage to the surrounding areas. This innovative technology allows dermal resurfacing and can even be used during open surgical procedures to change underlying tissues.

What can Renuvion address?

The treatment is effective for improving skin tone and texture while reducing the appearance of sunspots, visible blood vessels, and other irregularities. Renuvion is safe for use on thin skin areas like eyelids and around the mouth, making it a versatile option for addressing skin laxity on various parts of the face, neck, and body.

How does Renuvion work?

This minimally invasive procedure tightens the skin and stimulates deep tissue regeneration by using radiofrequency (RF) waves and cooling helium gas. The Renuvion precision wand, which is inserted through small incisions, delivers the treatment beneath the skin’s surface. The RF energy’s heat tightens various tissues, such as fat and collagen, while cold helium generates helium plasma to cool adjacent tissues and enhance energy levels. This combination of heat and cooling gas not only rejuvenates the skin but also protects it from burns and damage. This is unlike other plastic surgery procedures that require trimming of skin and fat. Renuvion uses a different type of thermal energy that is considered safer and has a lower chance of causing burns.

When will I see the results?

Full results of the Renuvion treatment become noticeable after several months, with improvements lasting between 3-5 years.

This often delays the need for more invasive procedures. The Renuvion J-Plasma system can also be utilized for altering underlying tissues during open surgical operations.

It has the ability to cut, ablate, and coagulate tissues as needed, making it a versatile and effective option for various medical applications.

Why choose Renuvion?

Renuvion is an excellent choice for those seeking a minimally invasive, skin-tightening treatment with several advantages over traditional surgical procedures. This innovative treatment is particularly beneficial for addressing skin laxity caused by weight gain, pregnancy, normal aging, and lifestyle habits such as excessive alcohol consumption, tobacco use, and sun exposure. Collagen and elastin, vital structural elements of the skin, can deteriorate due to each factor. Renuvion results may rival surgical outcomes without many unwanted side effects of traditional procedures. Additionally, patients can expect shorter and less painful healing times when compared to traditional procedures, making Renuvion an increasingly attractive choice for skin rejuvenation.

Renuvion vs. traditional surgery: Which is right for you?

When considering skin tightening treatments, weighing the pros and cons of Renuvion versus traditional surgical procedures is essential. Renuvion offers a minimally invasive option with a lower risk of damage or scarring to the skin.

It also allows for treating various areas of the face, neck, and body without the need for extensive incisions or downtime.

Traditional surgical procedures may be necessary, as they provide more dramatic results for those with severe skin laxity. Ultimately, the decision will depend on your individual needs, goals, and preferences.

Renuvion cost

Factors such as the treatment area’s size and location, the number of required sessions, and the medical professional’s expertise can cause variations in the cost of a Renuvion treatment.

While Renuvion may be more expensive than some other non-surgical skin tightening treatments, it offers long-lasting results. It can be more cost-effective in the long run compared to traditional surgical procedures.

Advantages of Renuvion

Renuvion is suitable for both men and women, offering a safer alternative to cosmetic medicine. It provides numerous benefits for those seeking a minimally invasive skin tightening treatment. Some of the advantages include:

  • Quick procedure with minimal downtime
  • Stimulates deep tissue rejuvenation for long-lasting results
  • Can delay the need for more invasive procedures
  • Addresses lax tissues without causing harm to surrounding areas
  • Improves the tone and texture of the skin, reducing sunspots, visible blood vessels, and other irregularities

  • Can postpone the need for more invasive procedures in patients with early signs of aging while restoring a youthful appearance

Renuvion treatment areas

Renuvion is a versatile treatment that can be used on nearly any area of the face, neck, and body experiencing skin laxity. Some of the most common treatment areas include:

Face and neck

Renuvion can effectively address skin laxity and wrinkles on the face and neck, providing a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.


For those with mild to moderate excess skin on the abdomen, Renuvion can help tighten and firm the area without the need for invasive surgery, like a tummy tuck.

Arms and thighs

Renuvion can be used to treat sagging skin on the upper arms and thighs, a problem for many patients that can start at a young age. This treatment can provide a more toned and contoured appearance.

Knees and elbows

The knees and elbows are common areas where the skin can become loose or saggy, particularly as a result of aging or weight fluctuations. Renuvion can help to address these concerns by stimulating collagen production in these areas.

Chest contouring

Renuvion can be used to tighten and firm the skin on the chest, giving it a smoother and more youthful appearance.
