Precise Tissue Contraction1-6

Renuvion has been shown to provide controlled coagulation and therefore contraction of soft tissue.1-5,7 It can also be an appealing alternative for patients who are seeking a faster, minimally invasive procedure with less risk, faster recovery time, and less scarring.7-9

Device Overview

What Is Renuvion?

Renuvion is a minimally-invasive procedure that uses helium plasma and RF energy to smooth and contour the neck and chin for an overall younger and tighter-looking appearance.10 A product of years of scientific research, testing, and refinement, the Renuvion system is also an all-in-one electrosurgical unit with full monopolar and bipolar functions, allowing you to save time and space with a single capital investment.

How It Works

Fast, Innovative Tissue Contraction

The optimal temperature for subdermal tissue contraction is 85°C, but most standard monopolar and bipolar radiofrequency devices can’t reach this temperature quickly enough without causing a concerning rise in skin temperature.1-5 Renuvion, however, heats to 85°C safely with minimal thermal spread and cools to baseline temperatures in less than a second.7 This maximizes tissue contraction with a shorter application time. Entry points are very small, resulting in less pain, shorter recovery, and minimal scarring.8

The Renuvion APR Handpiece is intended for the delivery of radiofrequency energy and/or helium plasma for cutting, coagulation and ablation of soft tissue during open surgical procedures. The Renuvion APR Handpiece is indicated for use in subcutaneous dermatological and aesthetic procedures to improve the appearance of lax (loose) skin in the neck and submental region.

The Renuvion APR Handpiece has general indications for use as well as indications to improve the appearance of lax skin in the neck and submental region only. The Renuvion APR Handpiece has not been cleared or approved for use with liposuction or in combination with any aesthetic procedure. As with any aesthetic procedure, individual results may vary. As with all energy devices there are inherent risks associated with its use. Risk associated with the use of the Renuvion APR 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, scarring, asymmetry and/or unacceptable cosmetic result. Expected clinical side effects may include discomfort/pain, edema, erythema, ecchymosis, hypoesthesia, touch sensitivity, itching, temporary weight gain, temporary numbness/tingling, subcutaneous nodules or lumps (transient migratory firmness), temporary and/or transient crepitus. Please see the instructions for use for more detailed information.
