Renuvion

Whether you’re gearing up for a milestone birthday, a long-overdue beach vacation, or a special event, you want your outer self to match your inner confidence. Renuvion is used to gently contract tissue beneath the skin in precisely targeted areas. Renuvion can be used in a standalone procedure or in addition to another procedure like liposuction.

Additional Facts

Who is a good candidate for Renuvion?

Healthy individuals who are frustrated with loose skin are good candidates for Renuvion. This procedure is a great choice for patients who don't want a highly-invasive surgery or the accompanying scarring and downtime

What are Renuvion contraindications?

Severe or uncontrolled systemic diseases, connective tissue disease, malignancy, unrealistic expectations, local skin pathology and pregnancy.

Note: A contraindication is a condition or factor that serves as a reason to withhold a certain medical treatment due to the harm that it would cause the patient.

How is this procedure performed?

Using a unique combination of helium plasma and radiofrequency (RF) energy, Renuvion quickly heats to the ideal temperature for tissue contraction, allowing you to achieve the best possible results in a short period of time. This minimally invasive procedure can be performed with a local anesthetic or while you’re asleep, depending on what you and your doctor feel is best.

During the procedure the Renuvion energy is applied underneath the skin, heating the collagen and other structures to the temperatures needed for optimal tissue contraction. This heating is done quickly and the tissue is cooled back to baseline in less than 1 second.

How long does the effect last?

We know the aging process can’t be stopped, but through the use of energy devices, like Renuvion, we know it is possible to contract soft tissues and start the collagen rebuilding process known as neocollagensis. This process takes 6-9 months which is why effects will improve over time. Renuvion is one of the latest game-changing technologies with early data showing results lasting up to 2.5 years.

What should I expect during recovery?

Since the area is numb after the procedure, we routinely do not use narcotics for pain control and pain is easily controlled on acetaminophen (Tylenol). Also, since general anesthesia and narcotics are usually avoided, nausea and vomiting are very rare after the procedure. A compression garment is usually worn postoperatively for 2-4 weeks or longer. Patients are usually discharged to the care of a responsible adult and recover at home. Light activity and early ambulation are encouraged after the surgery. Activities are advanced gradually based on your healing.

Where is the scar?

The scars are very small and usually hidden. These small incisions are difficult to detect after full healing occurs.

Great for anything in his speciality

If you are looking for a doctor who will listen to you and explain what & why he’s going to do something, you have found him. He has the added benefit of a wonderful bedside manner minus the arrogance found in doctors ( just because they are doctors, you have met a few if you’re reading this I’m sure). In all he’s a wonderful person who if you’re lucky enough to find him, give him a call. You will have an amazing doctor who is there for you without dodging your call’s no matter how silly you think the question or thought may be ( this isn’t a paid ad I promise, you have his cellphone number incase of anything no matter the time. Sorry, but I’ve never been able to reach a doctor 24-7 without going through a answering service and even then how many times do you get to talk to them? Not many from my experience and I’ve seen more doctors than I care to think about.) he’s always able to answer it or calm your pre surgery nerves. He’s great if you’re looking for anything in his specialty and if I could, he’d be my doctor for everything, but he’s only one person so I will settle for his specific fields.

Amazing Job

I went to Dr. Akkary for a neck lift. He did an amazing job. My results are better than I ever dreamed possible. On top of doing excellent work, Dr. Akkary was a caring and concerned doctor. The surgery center is clean and in excellent condition and the prices are more than reasonable. I highly recommend Dr. Akkary and his surgery center.
