What is Renuvion Face Tightening?

Renuvion is the only device that is FDA-cleared for improving the appearance of loose skin on the neck and chin. Renuvion uses cold plasma energy under the skin which immediately causes the skin to tighten and improve skin elasticity- eliminating the “crepey” looking skin. This revolutionary, minimally invasive procedure is able to provide you with natural-looking results with minimal downtime,

Renuvion FDA Clearance

Renuvion is FDA-cleared for the use in improving the appearance of lax skin on the neck and chin! With this clearance, Renuvion is the only device that is FDA-cleared to improve the appearance of loose skin on the neck and chin. Loss of jawline definition with age is inevitable and can add years to one’s appearance. Renuvion provides a minimally-invasive treatment with minimal downtime. The results reveal a more contoured and smoother neck and jawline. Dr. Paul Ruff was the primary investor in this study which lead to the FDA approval. You can read more about it here.

Specifically, in the last twelve months, Apyx Medical (the manufacturer of Renuvion) has received four FDA 510(k) clearances for the use of their Renuvion handpieces in specific clinical indications, all of which are supported by substantial evidence demonstrating the safety of their products.

What Is Plasma Energy?

Cold plasma is created when helium gas is energized by radiofrequency energy and delivered through the device. Because Helium gas is very stable, it can be ionized at very low energy ensuring flexible, precise and safe delivery. Cold plasma is cooler than laser energy making Renuvion Face a safer procedure with less risk and damage to the tissue and affording patients a quick recovery. The level of improvement and rejuvenation from cold plasma energy is unrivaled in current technologies. No laser, ultrasound or radiofrequency treatment is capable of tightening and firming skin to this level.

How Does The Renuvion Face Procedure Work?

Performed in-office and using local anesthesia, Dr. Ruff starts the Renuvion face procedure with three tiny, hidden incisions under the chin and behind each ear. They will then use the device sub-dermally (under the skin) to deliver cold plasma, which instantly tightens, shrinks and rejuvenates skin from the inside out. Results are immediate and continue to improve as your body continues to heal.
