Renuvion – Neck
Average Cost (FaceTite): $6000
Recovery Time: 1-2 days
Our face is the first thing people see and it generates long lasting impressions with those with whom we interact. Even with a healthy diet and regular exercise regimen, the effects of aging, genetics, smoking, and sun damage can cause unwanted creases, wrinkles and sagging skin which can give the illusion of an older appearance and fatigue. While skin care and minimally invasive procedures such as Botox and dermal fillers can provide some localized, temporary improvement, patients with more advanced aging often seek out a face/neck lift.
Many patients are not ready to commit to such an invasive procedure, and before now had limited options. Now, with Renuvion for face in Fort Worth, not everyone needs a facelift to obtain surgical-like results. Renuvion is a groundbreaking new technology that allows for near surgical results, using very small incisions and with minimal downtime.
If you are ready to learn more about how Renuvion can improve your look, request a consultation online with Dr. Steele, or call our office at 817-731-5330. We serve patients in Fort Worth, TX and surrounding communities and we welcome patients who wish to travel from outside the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.
Benefits of Renuvion
Renuvion uses innovative technology to apply radiofrequency energy to excite helium gas into an ionized plasma that allows for near-instantaneous heating of the subdermal tissue to 85 degrees Celsius, or 185 degrees Fahrenheit. This rapid tissue heating results in lipolysis (busting of fat cells), tightening of the underlying collagen network, and stimulation of new collagen production (neo-collagenesis).
The ruptured fat is then removed with liposuction. As a result, you are left with improved contour of the neck and jowl region with very small scars. Neck Renuvion in Fort Worth provides effective treatment of the following areas:
- Submental fat (double chin)
- Loose/crepey Neck Skin
The Renuvion procedure is performed in the office using local anesthesia with mild sedation (Valium and Nitrous Oxide, laughing gas). Through small incisions, Dr. Steele will place tumescent solution containing salt water and lidocaine/epinephrine into the areas to be treated. The tumescent solution provides turgor (firmness) to the tissues, lidocaine provides pain relief, and the epinephrine (adrenaline) shrinks the blood vessels to minimize bleeding. Once the tissues are numb, Dr. Steele uses the Renuvion handpiece to heat the tissues to a predetermined temperature that is optimal for melting fat and tightening the tissues, while minimizing risk of skin burns.
After all of the areas have been treated with the radiofrequency energy, Dr. Steele will remove any excess fat with small liposuction cannulas. Renuvion is often combined with radiofrequency skin needling using the Morpheus 8 handpiece. This combination of treatment provides powerful results, particularly in patients with thin, crepey skin.
