Featured Image

Loose skin is a common concern for many people, especially as they age. Fortunately, new advancements in technology have made it possible to tighten skin without the need for invasive procedures. Dr. José Ortiz may recommend Renuvion skin tightening to tone up your appearance.

While swelling may take several weeks to resolve after treatment, the long-term results can last for years. Call now to book a consultation at Altogether You Med Spa and see how we can help you achieve smoother skin. Our Phoenix, AZ, team can provide information about Renuvion side effects and how to prepare for recovery at home.

Why choose Renuvion?

Renuvion is a cosmetic procedure that tightens loose skin from below the surface. During treatment, Dr. Ortiz will numb the area (usually the neck, jawline, arms, abdomen, or thighs), then place a thin tube through small, strategically placed incisions. We then emit helium plasma energy and radiofrequency waves that combine to make plasma. This process creates both heat and cooling energy to firm up the skin.

Patients love Renuvion because it's minimally invasive and requires little downtime. Unlike traditional surgeries, it does not involve large incisions or long recovery times. Instead, you can expect immediate results with continued improvements over the next few weeks as your body produces more collagen.

What about Renuvion side effects?

Renuvion side effects include temporary redness and swelling at the treatment site. However, symptoms typically resolve within a few weeks. A consultation is one of the best times to review your medical history with Dr. Ortiz, discuss any concerns, and ask about potential risks. Our staff can offer detailed aftercare instructions to help minimize discomfort and promote healing.

How to alleviate swelling after Renuvion

To reduce swelling after Renuvion in Phoenix, AZ, we recommend following these tips:

  • Use cool compresses: Applying a cold compress or ice pack can help with swelling and inflammation. Wrap the ice pack in a towel before placement to avoid direct contact.
  • Take over-the-counter pain medication: If you experience mild discomfort, you may find relief by taking a drugstore pain reliever. We can recommend specific medications after your procedure is completed.
  • Avoid strenuous exercise: Remember to give your body time to rest and heal after Renuvion skin tightening. Dr. Ortiz will let you know when it is safe to resume regular workouts, such as heavy lifting.
  • Elevate the treatment area: Keeping your head or the treated body part elevated while resting can reduce unwanted swelling. Sleep on a recliner or use a wedge pillow to keep the area elevated.

When to expect results after Renuvion

While you may see some initial results after Renuvion skin tightening, it can take a few weeks for the full outcomes to become apparent. This is because it takes time for your body to produce new collagen. Though individual results vary and depend on factors like age and skin type, most patients can expect results that last for several years with proper care and maintenance.
