Renuvion®

Renuvion®  Logo

Years spent in the sun, weight changes, and the natural aging process can drain the life out of your skin, causing it to lose elasticity, become thin, and sag. If you aren’t ready for surgery, Weiler Plastic Surgery offers a minimally invasive skin tightening treatment called Renuvion in Baton Rouge. A single treatment provides patients from Lafayette, LA, and nearby cities long-lasting firming and tightening of face and body contours without the incisions and downtime needed with surgery. 

What Is Renuvion?  

Renuvion, formerly known as J-Plasma®, tightens the skin using a combination of radiofrequency (RF) energy and helium released just below the skin’s surface. This focused energy causes immediate contraction of the skin and renews collagen production for continued firming over the following months. 

What Is Renuvion Used For? 

Our board-certified plastic surgeons use Renuvion to tighten mild to moderately lax skin. Areas commonly treated include: 

  • Jowls and jawline 
  • Neck 
  • Upper arms 
  • Back and bra line 
  • Stomach 
  • Waist 
  • Inner and outer thighs  

Renuvion cannot tighten significantly lax skin in the way a tummy tuck, breast lift, or arm lift can. During your consultation, your doctor will help you understand which procedures are best suited to you.  

How Much Does Renuvion Cost in Baton Rouge?

At Weiler Plastic Surgery, the cost for a Renuvion treatment starts at $3,200 and varies with actual treatment areas and individual patient needs. You will be provided with a personalized price quote for your treatment during your consultation with one of our experienced providers.

How Does Renuvion Improve Liposuction? 

When fat is removed with liposuction, the skin should tighten smoothly to the new slimmer contours for attractive, natural-looking results. If skin lacks elasticity, Renuvion can be performed after liposuction to smooth and tighten the overlying skin without long incisions and stitches.

What Happens During a Renuvion Treatment? 

Our doctors perform Renuvion treatments using a local anesthetic with sedation or a general anesthetic, depending on which areas are being treated. If the treatment is performed on its own, the doctor inserts the Renuvion probe under the skin through tiny incisions near the target areas. When combined with liposuction, the doctor can use the same incisions for Renuvion.

How Long Does It Take To See Results From Renuvion? 

While Renuvion creates noticeable contraction right away, it takes 6 to 9 months to see the full effect as collagen is gradually produced. 

Recovery 

After a Renuvion treatment, most patients return to their normal activities within about a week. Expect light bruising and swelling for the first week. Discomfort, which can usually be managed with over-the-counter medication, typically lasts for a week or two. You may need to wear a compression wrap for 4 to 6 weeks to minimize swelling and optimize results.
