Since so many cosmetic procedures revolve around removing unwanted fatty tissue from the body, it might come as a surprise that there’s a new FDA-approved injectable that doesn’t remove fat, but actually causes fat to grow.
Renuva is especially helpful in correcting the age-related fat loss that occurs most often in our face, on our hands, and in other parts of the body that may have left us looking and feeling thin, worn out, or gaunt. As an alternative to dermal fillers, Renuva may be a better alternative for many patients since its results will last a lot longer.
We are excited to be the first practice in our area to be offering our patients this safe, simple, and effective treatment to help them look and feel more youthful and confident.
Renuva is an FDA-approved cosmetic injectable comprised of collagen, proteins, and growth factors found in healthy fat that has been donated and intensively processed and tested in accordance with FDA regulations that ensure it is clean and safe.
Renuva is injected into areas of the face, hands, or body that have been affected by age or trauma-related fat loss. You will see immediate improvements in volumizing and smoothing out the skin and complexion in treatment areas, and over time, the Renuva injection itself will be naturally replaced by your body’s own fat.
Renuva is usually an excellent choice for patients who are seeking rapid and perfectly natural-looking correction of age-related volume loss in the face and other parts of their body. Its benefits include:
Renuva may be used in almost any part of the body where fat once naturally existed and that has since been affected by age-related fat loss, such as the upper and midface, the hands, and other parts of the body.
It can also be an effective treatment option for addressing certain forms of cellulite, skin surface imperfections, volume loss, and even contour irregularities created by liposuction or other similar treatments.
Renuva treatments are done right here in our office, are fairly comfortable to experience, and require no recovery downtime. The procedure will begin with the application of a topical anesthetic that reduces any pain or discomfort associated with the injections. The procedure typically takes less than an hour from start to finish. You’ll see immediate results and have little to no recovery downtime.
The injected Renuva product won’t last forever, but the fatty tissue your body creates as a result of the injections will. Within a few weeks of treatment, the new fatty tissue will settle and the results you see will be semi-permanent. Just as with all other natural fat stores in the body, extreme dieting, exercise, and age-related fat loss will naturally affect the results, but barring that, your Renuva results should last almost indefinitely.
