Firm, Smooth, Flawless

In the heart of San Francisco, you'll find Dr. James Anthony, a board-certified plastic surgeon who has perfected the art of skin rejuvenation using the Renuvion system. His extensive experience and refined technique have made him a sought-after expert for those seeking firmer, more youthful skin without the downtime typically associated with traditional surgery. With a precise touch, Dr. Anthony can target specific areas of concern, promoting collagen production and smoothing your skin.

What Is Renuvion?

Renuvion is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure designed to tighten and rejuvenate your skin. Using radiofrequency (RF) energy and helium plasma, Renuvion delivers a precise treatment that encourages collagen production and tightens the skin's underlying structures. It works by bringing your skin closer to your muscles by shortening the strands of tissue that bind them.

During the procedure, a small cannula is inserted under the skin, and the Renuvion device emits the RF energy and helium plasma. This produces a dual thermal effect that cools and heats the tissue simultaneously, resulting in controlled coagulation and tightening of the skin. 

Treatment areas include the following:

  • Face
  • Neck
  • Abdomen
  • Arms
  • Thighs

Benefits of Renuvion

One of the most significant benefits of Renuvion is that it is highly efficient at stimulating collagen production in your skin. Collagen is the protein that gives your skin its elasticity and firmness. Through a controlled application of helium plasma and radiofrequency energy, Renuvion encourages new collagen formation, which results in tighter, firmer skin over time.

Some of its many other benefits include the following:

  • By stimulating collagen production, Renuvion enhances skin elasticity, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
  • Unlike traditional surgical methods, Renuvion is a minimally invasive procedure, offering significant results without the need for extensive downtime or recovery
  • With continued collagen remodeling, the results of Renuvion skin tightening can last for an extended period, providing sustained improvement in skin texture and appearance
  • Patients typically experience minimal discomfort during the procedure, as local anesthesia or twilight sedation is often used to ensure comfort throughout the treatment
  • Renuvion treatments are usually quick, with sessions typically lasting an hour or two, allowing patients to return to their daily activities shortly after the procedure
  • It’s FDA-approved for skin tightening procedures, ensuring its safety and efficacy for patients seeking cosmetic enhancement
  • By enhancing the body's natural collagen production, Renuvion achieves natural-looking results, avoiding the "overdone" appearance sometimes associated with surgical procedures

Am I a Good Candidate for Renuvion?

Here's what to consider to determine if you could be a good candidate:

  • If you have mild to moderate skin laxity, you might benefit from Renuvion
  • Loose skin that 'snaps back' when pinched is an ideal type for this treatment
  • Ideal candidates are in good general health
  • You should be free from conditions that impede healing or increase risk during procedures
  • While there's no specific age limit, younger individuals with resilient skin typically see the best results
  • Skin quality is key; those with minimal sun damage and non-smokers often experience better results
  • Understand that while Renuvion tightens skin, it doesn't remove excess fat or treat obesity
  • A stable weight is crucial as significant weight fluctuations can affect results
  • A commitment to a healthy lifestyle enhances and prolongs the effects

What to Expect During the Renuvion Procedure

The first step is a consultation with Dr. Anthony. During this crucial appointment, you’ll discuss your medical history and aesthetic goals to determine whether the procedure is right for you. Additionally, Dr. Anthony will examine your treatment site (face or body) to asses your skin quality and condition. 

On treatment day, local anesthesia will be administered to ensure your comfort during the treatment. Small, discreet incisions will be made in the targeted area, and the Renuvion device will be inserted through these incisions.

Radiofrequency energy and helium are applied beneath the skin, precisely heating and cooling the tissue. This application of RF energy causes an immediate contraction of the skin tissue, promoting collagen synthesis and leading to firmer, more youthful skin over time.

Aftercare and Recovery for Renuvion

After undergoing Renuvion skin tightening, your immediate focus should be on proper aftercare to ensure optimal results. Recovery time can vary, but mild to moderate activities typically can be resumed within a few days.

Skincare Routine

  • Gentle Cleansing: Cleanse the area with a mild, non-irritating soap.
  • Moisturizing: Apply prescribed or recommended creams to keep the skin moisturized.
  • Avoid Irritants: Refrain from using products containing alcohol or other irritants.

Post-Procedure Guidelines

  • Avoid Direct Sunlight: Protect the treated skin from sun exposure by wearing broad-spectrum sunscreen and covering up when outdoors.
  • Stay Hydrated: Drink plenty of water and keep your skin and body well-hydrated.
  • No Strenuous Activities: Refrain from heavy lifting and vigorous exercise for the first few weeks to prevent swelling and bruising.
  • Swelling and Bruising: These are common and should subside within several weeks.
  • Discomfort: Any pain should be manageable with over-the-counter medication or as directed by your physician.
