Renuvion is a new, groundbreaking minimally invasive technique that combines effective skin tightening and fat removal to optimally improve the contour of the neck and jowls.

Average Cost (FaceTite): $6,000

Recovery Time 1-2 days

Face: Renuvion-Neck

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. And now with Renuvion, 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 communitie sand 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 85degrees 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. Renuvion provides effective treatment of the following areas:

  • Jowls
  • Jawline
  • Submental fat (double chin)
  • Loose/crepey Neck Skin
Renuvion Technique

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 radio frequency energy, Dr. Steele will remove any excess fat with small liposuction cannulas. Renuvion is often combined with radio frequency skin needling using the Morpheus 8 handpiece. This combination of treatment provides powerful results, particularly in patients with thin, crepey skin.

During/After Surgery

The Renuvion procedure typically takes about 1.5 hours. You may notice some redness, swelling, and possibly some pinpoint bleeding and crusting from the Morpheus8 treatment. Although you will notice some swelling and possibly some bruising, you will notice an improvement in your contour right away due to the fat reduction. A topical skin care regimen is applied for 2-3 days while there is any crusting along the treated areas. You should avoid direct sun exposure while healing and wear sunscreen during the recovery process. It is very important to wear the neck compression 24/7 for the first 3-4 days, and then at night for the next 2-3 weeks to help encourage resolution of the swelling. Normal activity and sedentary work can be resumed within a few days. Cardio activity and heavy lifting should be limited for 3weeks. Most people can return to work within2-3days. You will have some degree of swelling that may take up to 3 months to resolve. Additionally, with Renuvion and Morpheus, you will notice continued improvement and skin contraction for 6-12 months after the procedure. To extend the benefits of Renuvion, maintenance Morpheus 8/Fractora treatments may be recommended as well as a physician-quality skin care routine.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is Renuvion?

Renuvion is the first FDA-approved device of its kind, using radiofrequency energy induced helium plasma (j-plasma) to tighten the subdermal fibro-septal network.   This minimally invasive technique tightens the skin, melts the fat, and stimulates the production of new collagen for optimal skin contour after the procedure.  It is designed to give you the results similar to a facelift without the cost and need for invasive surgery. Renuvion can dramatically improve your neckline, double chin, and sagging jowls.

How Does Renuvion Work?

The Renuvion handpiece is placed underneath the skin (sub-dermally) and uses radiofrequency energy to heat helium gas into an excited ionized state known as j-plasma.  This plasma heats the subdermal collagen network very quickly to 85 degrees Celsius (185 degrees Fahrenheit).  This rapid heating results in lipolysis (destruction of the fat cells), tightening of the fibro-septal collagen network, and neo-collagenesis or the development of new collagen.  Any melted fat is then removed with a small liposuction cannula.  The result is tighter, thicker, smoother, and younger-looking skin with improved contour.

What Are The Benefits Of Renuvion?

Renuvion can provide near-surgical results without the drawbacks of a more invasive face/neck lift procedure.  A facelift can take up to 6-7 hours and requires general anesthesia, while the Renuvion procedure is performed under local anesthesia and takes about one hour. Additionally, your recovery is much quicker with very small, inconspicuous scars.

Will I Have Scars After A Renuvion Procedure?

Very small incisions (3-4mm) are made to allow the Renuvion handpiece and liposuction cannulas into the fatty areas to remove the fat and tighten the skin.  The scars are very small and often hidden in natural creases and shadows.  It is likely that nobody will notice these small, faint scars unless they are pointed out to them.

Am I A Good Candidate For Renuvion?

Almost anyone struggling with sagging, loose facial or neck tissue will make a good candidate for Renuvion.  You should be in good health, understand the procedure, and have realistic expectations for your result.

What Areas Can Be Treated?

Renuvion is a versatile treatment option that is quite effective at treating loose skin and excess fat in the cheeks, jowls, and submental (under the chin) region.

Is Renuvion Painful?

Renuvion is very well tolerated with mild oral sedation and local anesthesia.  Nitrous oxide (laughing gas) is available as well to help ensure complete patient comfort.

What Is The Recovery Like; When Can I Return To Work?

Renuvion is a well-tolerated, outpatient procedure performed in Dr. Steele’s office under local anesthesia with mild sedation.   It is normal to see swelling, and possibly some bruising as well some mild pinpoint areas of crusting.  You may have some mild pain due to the inflammation that responds well to non-narcotic pain medications.  You will be placed into a neck compression garment that is worn 24/7 for 3 days and then at night for 2 weeks.  Most patients can return to work in 2-4 days.  You should avoid cardio or strenuous exercise for about 3 weeks.

Is The Treatment Permanent? How Long Will The Results Last?

Depending on the individual, your Renuvion results will last for many years.  It is important to realize that your skin will continue to age due to sun damage, smoking, genetics, and the natural aging process.  Skin care and radiofrequency microneedling with the Morpheus 8/Fractora (hyperlink) handpieces can help maintain your results.

When Will I See My Final Results?

You will notice some improvement immediately after surgery; however, typical bruising and swelling will camouflage your final contour for several months. It is important to wear the compression garment as instructed by Dr. Steele to facilitate resolution of your swelling and skin contraction. You will gradually notice improvement as the swelling goes away, but it will take 3-6 months to see the final result. Additionally, you will continue to notice skin tightening for 6-12 months after the procedure.
