The Renuvion Story
Renuvion is the product of years of scientific research, experimentation, refinement, and market testing. Evolving from Apyx Medical’s long history in hospital-based surgery, physicians learned Renuvion was providing controlled heat to tissue which causes a tissue contraction effect.1,2,3,4,5 Although Renuvion was not originally developed for this specific use, Apyx recognized the opportunity to offer tremendous value in this space, enabling physicians to provide optimal results in less time as part of a minimally invasive procedure.6,7,8,9,10,11,12
Practices around the world have discovered that Renuvion is the solution their patients have been seeking – a standalone procedure or complement to liposuction that could provide lasting results with less downtime, less risk, and little scarring.8,10,13 For many practices, Renuvion has become the catalyst for unprecedented growth.14,15
