At the Pittsburgh Center for Plastic Surgery, we know how vital it is for our patients to look and feel their absolute best. We also know that our patients have busy lives, and keeping downtime to a minimum is essential. At our practice in Pittsburgh Renuvion is a facial and body treatment that utilizes radiofrequency (RF) energy and helium gas to form a heated plasma. This plasma can be carefully directed beneath the outer layers of skin to reduce signs of skin laxity (sagging skin) while still maintaining a natural-looking appearance.
Youthful Results Without the Scars
Renuvion is a minimally invasive procedure that generates plasma using radiofrequency (RF) energy and helium to tighten the skin beneath the surface with heat. For patients who may need a tummy tuck or facelift, but cannot afford the recovery time, Renuvion can be a good alternative.
Say Goodbye to Sagging Skin
Renuvion is a process that is effective and minimally invasive. Because of its precision and accuracy, it is ideal for targeting sensitive regions of the face and body, and it may be utilized to lessen the visibility of jowls and sagging skin. Also, Renuvion results can be visible immediately, and the recuperation time is significantly less than what is required for a conventional facelift or body lift.
The Ultimate Skin Rejuvenation
At the Pittsburgh Center for Plastic Surgery, selecting the appropriate procedure for your skin and body is a significant decision. We are here to guide you through the process. Because of this, board-certified plastic surgeons are here to assist you at every stage. At your initial consultation, we will discuss your objectives and do a skin analysis to decide whether or not Renuvion is beneficial to you. Not everyone may be a good candidate for Renuvion, and your surgeon may recommend a more invasive surgical procedure to meet your needs.

The Renuvion technique is a non-invasive, outpatient treatment that can be performed right here in the comfort of our office. First, this method uses liposuction to remove fat in the area to be treated. After that, the energy is used to securely and accurately pull the skin closer together on the face and body. The entire process usually takes an hour depending on the area to be treated.
Achieve Firmer, Smoother Skin
You can expect that your skin's tone will improve after your procedure. When the skin contracts, it takes on a more lifted and tighter feel and appearance. The outcomes are different for each individual; however, most patients can experience the positive effects of Renuvion for a number of years after treatment. Final results can take up to nine to 12 months.
Revitalize Your Appearance Today
During your recovery from Renuvion Pittsburgh patients will be provided with a specialized bandage to place over the treated region. This bandage will help minimize swelling and alleviate any discomfort. In addition, we advise patients to cut back on physical activity and stay out of the sun.
Renuvion delivers controlled energy to the skin's underlying tissues, which causes them to contract and tighten. This results in a tighter feel to the skin.
Renuvion uses plasma energy versus bipolar radiofrequency. Renuvion works best after removing fat with liposuction, or for patients who have had previous liposuction, or lost significant fat via weight loss. It primarily affects skin tightness in a powerful way. Bodytite is an all in one procedure, which destroys fat, tightens the skin, and improves the skin surface all at once. While it is more convenient as an all in one, it can be less effective for some patients compared to Renuvion who need a more multi-step approach.
Yes, Renuvion is a safe procedure when performed by a qualified and experienced surgeon. It has been cleared by the FDA for use in cosmetic procedures.
The recovery time for Renuvion is typically faster than with traditional surgical procedures. Patients can expect to return to normal activities within a few days after the procedure, although some swelling and bruising may be present for a few weeks.
The length of the procedure depends on the area being treated, but it typically takes between 30 minutes and two hours.
While the results of Renuvion are long-lasting, they are not permanent. However, with proper care and maintenance, patients can enjoy the benefits of Renuvion for several years.
Renuvion may not be suitable for individuals with certain medical conditions or those who have had previous surgeries or treatments in the area being treated. It's important to discuss any medical history or concerns with your doctor before undergoing the procedure.
