As we age, wrinkling and sagging of the skin occurs over most of our body. In some areas, this sagging can be particularly unsightly, reducing a person’s confidence and self-esteem. For example, many women report saggy and/or wrinkly skin under their upper arms (in the triceps area) no matter how much they build muscle tone. Tightening of the arm skin has long been an issue requiring long, prominent scars from having skin excised during a procedure called brachioplasty. Many patients were not willing to trade the unsightly scars to get rid of the flabby skin. Now, using Renuvion™® technology, we can perform a procedure that requires small incisions to tighten the skin in this area without the scarring usually associated with the Brachioplasty procedure.
Renuvion™ is performed using VASER® ultrasound energy and helium energy to tighten the soft tissues below the skin. Unlike traditional lasers, Renuvion energy can be administered under the skin (subcutaneously) because it uses energized helium to create a plasma energy field (75% less of the thermal load of a CO2 laser). When introduced under the skin, it causes immediate and often dramatic skin tightening. There is no significant scarring because only 3-5 very small incisions (~5 millimeters in size) are needed. The entire procedure is performed under general anesthesia in an accredited surgical facility.

What’s the Downtime?
The downtime associated with Renuvion™ can vary depending on the areas treated and how large of an area is done. This can all be discussed in detail with Dr. Wallace at the time of your consultation.
Does It Work ?
Yes! Unlike some other devices that only provide minimal improvements, Renuvion™ results in immediate skin tightening with additional tightening occurring 2-4 weeks post operatively and our patients are amazed by the results! Dr. Wallace sees results similar to traditional surgical techniques that would leave much larger scars and that’s what makes Renuvion™® so great.
How Much Does It Cost?
Ultimately, the cost will depend on the size of the area being treated and will be discussed during your consultation with Dr. Wallace.
