We use this innovative technology to apply energy beneath the skin, causing a contraction effect that’s gentle on tissue. The effect of the treatment may continue to improve over time and doctors often report that the contraction effect is noticeable immediately after the procedure.
Renuvion skin tightening can also be a fantastic option for those looking to see smoother, firmer facial or body features without major surgery. The beauty of Renuvion is that it tightens the skin and contours the body in ways that were never before attainable without invasive surgery and significant scarring.
Frequently Asked Questions
Making the decision to undergo surgical procedures can be a difficult one, and there are many questions you may have. Please read the frequently asked questions below which may answer any queries or ease any concerns you may have.
What is Renuvion?
Around the world, Renuvion was known as J-Plasma. It is now known as Renuvion and LASE Cosmetic is thrilled to be able to introduce it to the north-east. It is an incredible skin-tightening system that gently heats the ‘fibro-septal’ network under the skin causing it to shrink and tighten without the scars of excisional surgery.
What areas can be treated?
Most areas of loose skin are suitable including the neck, the arms, the tummy and back, the thighs and it’s an effective form of chest skin tightening surgery. For the most effective results the area is treated with liposuction to remove any excess volume before undertaking the Renuvion skin tightening phase.
Does it hurt?
No the procedure is performed under a local anaesthetic so you should experience no pain or discomfort during the operation. Afterwards you will be supplied with painkillers that should keep you comfortable as you recover.
Surely I need a tummy tuck for my loose abdominal skin?
Renuvion is an incredible system, but in some cases excisional surgery (surgery to remove excess skin) might still be necessary such as a tummy tuck or neck-lift, arm-lift or thigh-lift. Our consultant plastic surgeons are experts in these procedures as well but in appropriate cases the Renuvion system means you can avoid the need for operations with long scars, a general anaesthetic and an in-patient stay. By reducing the extent of the surgery you need but not compromising the result we can reduce the risks of your procedure.
