About the Renuvion Treatment
Aging, childbirth, and weight loss are all great milestones in our lives. Unfortunately, they may present unwanted skin conditions such as lax skin. Current skincare products on the market may offer their unique approach to skin tightening but they only offer temporary solutions, at best. Patients looking for a long-lasting and easy solution can look to Renuvion to revive their skin’s youthful texture. This ingenious skin tightening method uses helium gas, which is transformed by radiofrequency (RF) energy.  The Renuvion device is gently inserted under the skin, where it delivers this helium plasma energy. The helium gas becomes energized by radiofrequency waves and delivers the energy beneath the skin to cause a gentle tightening effect and stimulate collagen production. The contraction effect is seen immediately after your treatment with continued improvements as time goes on. Using the Renuvion treatment is useful for treating skin laxity in the abdomen, back, arm, neck, and face.
Patients can treat these areas with Renuvion: 
How Renuvion Can Benefit You

- Its minimally invasive method
- Significantly reduces fine lines and wrinkles

Tehrani Plastic Surgery will provide you with a detailed, personalized list of preparatory instructions. To ensure your healing process goes smoothly, Dr. Tehrani will ask you to temporarily stop smoking and drinking a few weeks before your treatment to prevent complications in the recovery process. Be sure to provide us with a detailed list of current medications. If you are taking certain medications such as anti-inflammatory medication, you may need to temporarily stop them until after treatment. Topical products will also be needed to be paused 24 hours before. Make sure to get a good night’s sleep before your appointment. Finally, come to the office with skin that’s free from lotions, makeup, and other topical products.
Your Renuvion procedure should take less than an hour. A few, minute incisions are made in the treatment areas so Dr. Tehrani can insert the slim Renuvion wand just under the skin. Once in place, the device generates a precise amount of helium gas and radiofrequency (RF) to treat the skin tissues.  The quick burst of heat causes the tissue to contract, shrinking into a tighter, smoother contour. At the same time, the low-temperature plasma in the device stimulates the deep layers of the skin to ramp up collagen production and elastin remodeling. The cooling keeps discomfort to a bare minimum and leaves nearby skin undamaged. Once complete, the small incisions are closed with sutures.
The Renuvion recovery process is a short one. Most patients can return to their normal activities within two days. However, healing may take about 1-2 weeks. Mild discomfort may be felt and can be easily treated with OTC pain relievers or prescription medication. Patients who received a Renuvion treatment in the lower face and neck will need to wear a compression garment to protect the results for 24 hours a day for three days.
With Renuvion, patients experience noticeable results within hours of their first treatment. Continued improvements to the skin are seen after the swelling and bruising subside. When patients see their final results, they enjoy skin that is smooth, tightened, and refreshed. And best of all, the majority of patients only need a single treatment.

Patients looking for a more comprehensive makeover may be interested in combining their treatment with a VASER HI-DEF Liposuction. This highly advanced procedure relies on ultrasound waves to break down fat for easy removal. To begin, Dr. Tehrani injects a special saline solution into the targeted area that numbs the area and helps make the fat cells easier to remove, so he is able to precisely sculpt an aesthetic ideal. Tiny incisions are made to insert small probes under the skin to emit ultrasound energy. These vibrations break fat cells while leaving the surrounding area intact. These unwanted fat cells are liposuctioned out using a cannula. Incisions are closed with sutures. In under two hours, patients can enjoy results of leaner, taut appearance for the abdominals, buttocks, or arms.
Your Renuvion pricing depends on the unique details that Dr. Tehrani has outlined in your personalized treatment plan. Your final cost will take into account the size of the treated areas and any other treatments combined with Renuvion. A customized quote will be discussed at your consultation. Tehrani Plastic Surgery is pleased to offer patients with affordable financing options for qualified patients.
