WHAT IS RENUVION?
Renuvion cosmetic technology is the result of extensive scientific research and clinical development. Because of its proprietary balance of helium and RF energy, Renuvion has been described as ideal for medical procedures where precision and control are key to an effective treatment.
Since it was discovered to have a distinct tissue contraction effect due to its unique ability to provide controlled heat to the tissue,1,2,3 Renuvion has been embraced by Plastic Surgeons, Facial Plastic Surgeons and physicians specializing in cosmetic surgery. These experts in their fields are calling it one of the most exciting advancements they’ve seen in the last 20 years.4
Renuvion delivers even, controlled energy with exceptional precision
Doctors use this novel technology to apply energy beneath the skin, causing a contraction effect that’s gentle on tissue.1,2,3 The effect of the treatment may continue to improve over time and doctors often report that the contraction effect is noticeable immediately after the procedure.1,2,3,4
Renuvion cosmetic technology is offered by Apyx™ Medical, an advanced energy company with a passion for elevating people’s lives through innovative products in the cosmetic and surgical markets. Apyx, formerly known as Bovie® Medical, leverages decades of experience in plasma technologies and unique waveforms to meet the changing needs of today’s patients and physicians.

Renuvion has received a general clearance and has not been determined to be safe or effective for use in any specific procedures for the treatment of any specific conditions.
Risk associated with the use of Renuvion may include: unintended burns (deep or superficial), scars, temporary or permanent nerve injury, pain, discomfort, gas buildup resulting in temporary and transient crepitus or pain, infection, hematoma, seroma; 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.
