Renuvion gently produces dramatic results for a previously unobtainable level of nonsurgical improvement.  For our facial rejuvenation patients, Renuvion is an excellent minimally invasive alternative to traditional surgical facelifting.  Renuvion can be performed under local or IV sedation or a light general anesthetic, with or without liposuction of the jowls and neck.  Renuvion is a single in-office minimally invasive treatment producing immediate results that continue to improve for several months as your skin tightens and your body produces more collagen.


The Renuvion device uses a gentle radiofrequency waveform to convert an inert gas into a cold plasma. Helium is used to convert to a plasma with very little energy. The result is an energy unique in its ability to provide tissue heating and cooling almost simultaneously.


When Renuvion is used under the skin, the combination of gas and electric energy creates an effect that both heats and cools the tissue at the same time, delivering an effective tightening result. This process does not harm the surrounding tissue, and makes an excellent option for those who want to tighten the skin of the face, chin, neck, abdomen and other areas.

Frequently Asked Questions

After local anesthesia is administered, Dr. Samuels inserts a slender wand into small incisions of the treatment area. The controlled plasma energy is then applied directly beneath the surface of the skin, heating up to 85 degrees and immediately tightening the skin while stimulating tissue for the continued production of collagen. Within moments of the tissue being heated, the remaining helium gas jet cools the tissue, preventing the tissue from burning.

Renuvion can be done on both the face and the body. Common location choices for a Renuvion skin tightening procedure are:

  • Lower face and neck
  • Upper face, such as under-eyes, eyebrows and forehead
  • Arms
  • Thighs
  • Knees
  • Buttocks
  • Abdomen
  • Posterior Trunk and Waist

Loss of tissue elasticity and tone are some of the first signs of aging. Your skin just isn’t able to bounce back the way it did when you were younger. Gravity takes over resulting in drooping skin. From your neck to your legs, Renuvion can bring back more youthful contours with a quick return to your normal routine.

If you want a procedure with minimal downtime, virtually no scarring and results that restore a more youthful, contoured appearance, Renuvion may be the answer for you.

Renuvion can also be used over the skin’s surface alone or in combination with VASER LIPOSUCTION, Emface and/or microneedling (Profound, Morpheus8 or Exion Fractional RF) or laser resurfacing (CO2RE).
