What is Renuvion?
Renuvion is a nonsurgical skin-tightening procedure designed to improve the elasticity of mild to moderately loose skin. People develop loose skin as they age, lose weight, or as the result of another cosmetic procedure. The Renuvion device helps remedy this problem. It heats the connective tissue under the skin to stimulate tissue contraction, resulting in a smooth, taut appearance.
Unlike traditional lasers, the Renuvion device uses helium and a proprietary radiofrequency energy, meaning it doesn’t heat the skin as much as similar techniques. Lower heat means less thermal damage to surrounding tissue, making the recovery process easier.
At PureSculpting Aesthetic Centers, our plastic surgeons in Jacksonville and Tampa offer Renuvion treatments alone or in combination with other procedures to tighten sagging or loose skin. The guide below explains how Renuvion works, what the procedure is like, and how to tell if you’re a good candidate.

How Does Renuvion Skin Tightening Work?
Renuvion uses a combination of helium gas and radiofrequency (RF) energy to heat subdermal tissues below the skin, stimulating tissue contraction. It then immediately cools the treated area to prevent tissue damage.
Here’s how this process works inside the device:
- The Renuvion is filled with helium gas. Some of the gas is heated with RF to transform it into plasma. Since helium gas requires less energy to become a plasma, there is less heat and risk of damage to the treated tissue.
- Helium is a naturally cold gas. Once the treated area is sufficiently heated, the remaining unheated helium is used as an immediate cooling agent to soothe and protect the treated area.
This process encourages soft tissues to contract, resulting in noticeably tighter skin.
How is the Renuvion Procedure Performed?
Before your procedure, you’ll first have a consultation with your plastic surgeon to determine where you’ll receive your Renuvion treatment.
During the procedure, the plastic surgeon administers an anesthetic to prevent discomfort. You can choose a local anesthetic to numb the treatment area, or a general anesthetic so you can sleep through the procedure.
Next, the plastic surgeon applies the Renuvion device under your skin through tiny entry points. The helium plasma and RF energy are emitted simultaneously through a slender hand-held wand to provide an even application just below the skin’s surface. It’ll quickly heat the plasma to the ideal temperature for tissue contraction, and then use the remaining helium gas to quickly cool down the area in less than a second.
Though the wand is inserted under the skin, this procedure does not require incisions and is considered a minimally invasive procedure. You’ll have minimal scarring (if any) and have immediately visible results in the treated areas.
Combining Renuvion & LipoSculpting Liposuction
In addition to Renuvion, PureSculpting offers LipoSculpting liposuction, a minimally invasive procedure that uses rapid vibration and mild suction to break down and eliminate unwanted fat deposits in the body. Many of our patients in Jacksonville and Tampa choose to combine these procedures.
LipoSculpting can reduce stubborn fat around the abdomen, hips, arms, and other parts of the body, while Renuvion can tighten skin in the areas where the fat was removed. When combined with our LipoSculpting procedure, Renuvion treatments also use the same small entry points in the body, which reduces postoperative discomfort and scarring.
What Areas of the Body Can Be Treated with Renuvion?
