Renuvion (skin tightening)

At Boerhaave Medical Center we offer the Renuvion treatment, an advanced technique for skin tightening with ionized helium, also known as J-plasma. This treatment is performed by experienced plastic surgeons and focuses on tightening the skin and subcutaneous fatty tissue without leaving large scars.

The Renuvion treatment is ideal for areas where the skin is sagging, such as the double chin, neck, abdomen, upper arms and legs. During the treatment, small incisions are made, which minimizes scarring. The procedure is usually combined with a liposuction treatment to tighten the skin, resulting in a better result after treatment with Renuvion.

01 What is Renuvion?

Renuvion is a minimally invasive procedure that uses a unique combination of cold helium plasma and radiofrequency energy to tighten the skin from within. This technology is specifically designed to warm the underlying tissues while keeping surrounding areas cool, resulting in less recovery time and fewer risks compared to traditional skin tightening methods.

Treatment with Renuvion can also be combined with other treatments such as a minus abdominoplasty or a tummy tuck.

The treatment can be performed under local anesthesia for small areas, while larger treatment areas are performed under general anesthesia. Our plastic surgeons carefully assess which approach suits you best.

After the treatment, you will receive a pressure bandage for the correct body area, which must be worn for at least 4 weeks.

The result of the Renuvion treatment is tighter skin and improved contours, with long-lasting effects through stimulation of collagen formation up to 9 months after the procedure.

02 How does Renuvion work in combination with liposuction?

Liposuction is a popular cosmetic procedure that removes excess fat from specific areas of the body. Although liposuction is effective for fat removal, it alone cannot significantly tighten the skin. This is where Renuvion comes in handy. By applying Renuvion immediately after liposuction, the doctor can tighten the skin in the areas where fat has been removed, leading to a smoother and more defined body contour.

During the treatment, small incisions of approximately 5 mm are made, followed by the introduction of anesthetic fluid through a thin cannula under the skin. After a treatment period of 15-30 minutes, liposuction can be performed if necessary. The Renuvion cannula is then inserted through the same opening, allowing energy to be delivered to the tissue. This energy, in combination with heat and radiofrequency waves, leads to tightening of both the subcutaneous fatty tissue and the skin. Plasma energy is precisely guided through the collagen network of the subcutaneous fat and skin, causing the underlying connective tissue to contract and the skin to tighten. In addition, this energy stimulates the formation of new collagen, resulting in long-lasting improvement for up to 9 months after treatment.

03 Benefits of Renuvion after liposuction

Improved skin tightness: Renuvion stimulates the production of collagen, resulting in firmer and tighter skin.
Minimum recovery time: The combination of helium plasma and radiofrequency energy ensures rapid healing and minimizes recovery time.
Precision: Renuvion provides exceptional control over the tightening process, allowing the practitioner to precisely treat specific areas without damaging surrounding tissues.
Long lasting results: Although the initial improvements are immediate, results will continue to improve over time as more collagen is produced.

04 Are there any risks to treatment with Renuvion?

There are risks with every treatment. The most common risks of Renuvion treatment include infections, swelling, bruising, and scarring, although these are generally minor. Asymmetry in the treated areas may also occur, and sometimes there may be uneven skin texture or irregular contours, especially if too much fat is removed. After the treatment, the treated area may be temporarily numb.

05 Who is Renuvion suitable for?

This treatment is ideal for patients looking for an effective way to tighten the skin after liposuction. It is especially effective for those who experience mild to moderate skin sagging. A consultation with a qualified specialist is essential to determine whether Renuvion is the right option for your specific situation.

06 What can you expect during recovery?

After treatment, you can expect some swelling and bruising, which will subside within days to weeks. Most patients can resume normal activities within a few days, although it is important to avoid strenuous exercise until full recovery is achieved.

After treatment, a pressure bandage is applied to the appropriate body area for at least 4 weeks to support the healing process.

07 Conclusion

Renuvion, in combination with liposuction, provides a powerful solution for patients seeking a tighter, more defined body. By using advanced technology to tighten the skin from within, this treatment helps to improve the aesthetic results of liposuction. If you are considering undergoing this treatment, please consult with one of our specialist plastic surgeons to discuss whether this is the right choice for you.
