If you are living with mild to moderate skin laxity and would like to tone multiple areas of your body without the hassle of invasive surgery, Renuvion skin tightening treatments may be the appropriate option. At Altogether You Med Spa, Dr. Jose Ortiz works with patients throughout Phoenix, AZ, helping them attain their body contouring needs. With Renuvion skin tightening treatments, patients can experience gorgeous, firmer skin with minimal scarring and little to no downtime.

What is skin tightening treatment?

Skin tightening treatment with Renuvion is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that utilizes helium plasma and radiofrequency to firm up mild to moderately lax skin. Handheld applicators can treat multiple treatment sites, and skin tightening treatments can be combined with additional cosmetic techniques to enhance aesthetic results. At Altogether You Med Spa, Dr. Ortiz can help you create a customized skin tightening treatment plan based on your personal goals, current skin laxity, and his professional recommendations.

What parts of the body can skin tightening treatment be used on?

Renuvion can be used to treat multiple areas of the body, including the:

  • Face

  • Abdominal area

  • Thighs

  • Upper arms

  • Neck

  • Jawline

  • Submental area

Ideal candidates for skin tightening treatment

Both men and women are candidates for Renuvion skin tightening treatment if they:

  • Are in good, general health

  • Are at an ideal body weight

  • Exhibit mild to moderate skin laxity

  • Want to make subtle improvements to firm up their skin

  • Have realistic expectations about their treatment

  • Don’t want to go through cosmetic surgery

Dr. Ortiz will review each patient’s medical and personal histories to determine if they can safely participate in skin tightening treatments.

How the treatment process works

Skin tightening treatments are performed at Altogether You Med Spa within the comforts of one of our private treatment rooms. Local anesthesia is applied to thoroughly numb the treatment site. A thin tube on the Renuvion applicator is gently inserted under the skin through a small incision. Both helium gas and radiofrequency waves are simultaneously emitted, combining to make a plasma that creates heating and cooling energy. The end result is contraction and firming of the skin. Once your treatment session is finished, you may leave our office to resume normal daily activities.

Is there any recovery time after skin tightening treatments?

Patients should expect temporary soreness, bruising, and swelling at each treatment site, which usually subsides within a few days. Typically, patients should take it easy for the first day or so to allow incisions to heal. In some cases, compression garments may be needed for a couple of days to optimize results.

Will results show quickly after skin tightening treatments?

In some instances, patients may notice results almost immediately or after post-treatment swelling and bruising goes down. However, many patients won’t notice optimal results for several weeks after their initial treatment.

Will my results last?

Renuvion skin tightening treatment outcomes are designed to last for several years. However, patients may risk compromising their skin tightening results if they experience dramatic weight change. Patients are welcome to return to the clinic for future skin tightening treatment to freshen their results.
