Gentle, Precise Tissue Contraction2,3,4,5,6,9,10

Renuvion is a cosmetic technology that can be used as a complementary treatment coupled with liposuction or as a standalone procedure for those seeking optimal results without excisional surgery.11,12,13,14,15,16

Why Renuvion?

Delivering an innovative combination of radiofrequency energy and helium plasma, Renuvion safely heats to the optimal temperature for maximum tissue contraction and cools down in less than a second.2,3,4,5,6,7 This allows you to achieve better results with better control and precision in less time.9,10,12,13,14,15,16,17,18

Using this proprietary technology from Apyx® Medical, many practices have been able to augment their services, attract more patients, schedule more procedures, and boost revenue.19,20

Advantages of Renuvion


Less Invasive

Renuvion is used in a minimally invasive procedure through small entry points to gently contract tissue below the skin.2,3,4,5,6,7 Incisional scars are very minor compared to traditional excisional surgery.1


Less Downtime

The procedure can be performed while awake with a local anesthetic or while the patient is asleep. Recovery time is shorter compared to more invasive treatments and alternative minimally invasive RF technology.1,13,14


Optimal Results

Doctors often report that the contraction effect created by Renuvion is noticeable immediately after treatment. Results may even continue to improve over time.2,3,4,5,6,13,14,16

Learn More About Renuvion:

The Renuvion system is intended to be used with compatible electrosurgical generators for the delivery of radiofrequency energy and/or helium plasma to cut, coagulate and ablate soft tissue during open surgical procedures. The Apyx Plasma/RF Handpiece (APR HP) is a sterile, single use electrosurgical (monopolar) device intended to be used in conjunction with compatible generators for the percutaneous delivery of radiofrequency energy and/or helium plasma for cutting, coagulation and ablation of soft tissue.

The Renuvion system has received a general clearance and has not been determined to be safe or effective for use in any specific indication or anatomical location. Apyx Medical does not promote its general clearance products for any specific surgical specialty or subspecialty.

Risk associated with the use of the Renuvion system for subdermal coagulation may include: Helium embolism into the surgical site due to inadvertent introduction into the venous or arterial blood supply system, unintended burns (deep or superficial), pneumothorax, temporary or permanent nerve injury, ischemia, fibrosis, infection, pain, discomfort, gas buildup resulting in temporary and transient crepitus or pain, bleeding, hematoma, seroma, subcutaneous induration, pigmentation changes, increased healing time, unsatisfactory scarring, asymmetry and/or unacceptable cosmetic result. There may be additional risks associated with the use of other devices along with Renuvion and there may be an increased risk for patients who have undergone prior surgical or aesthetic procedures in the treatment area. As with any procedure, individual results may vary. As with all energy devices there are inherent risks associated with its use, refer to the IFU for further information.
