Renuva: Naturally Restore Youthful Radiance or Renuva: An Overview of What You Need to Know
With age, the body loses fat and collagen naturally over time, causing the skin to look thin and wrinkled. Renuva helps to restore your natural, youthful appearance. The result is refreshed, beautiful and subtle – never overdone.
Until now, the only way to add fat to a desired area was to undergo liposuction, which usually requires going under general anesthesia to harvest fat to inject into desired treatment areas.
With Renuva, the Cleveland Plastic Surgery Institute can now offer you an off-the-shelf solution that can replace your fat loss with your own fat – no surgery necessary!
What is Renuva?
Renuva is a groundbreaking, non-invasive treatment that, when injected, gradually replaces age-related fat loss with your body’s own fat. Renuva is a safe and effective way to volumize your face, hands, and body.
It is made of a biocompatible agent composed of the same growth factors, proteins, and collagen found in your own fat – and contains the same regenerative components that exist in your own fat cells. There are no cells in Renuva.
This treatment replenishes volume and is also used to refine contour deficiencies, such as hip dips, or smooth irregularities in the breasts often caused by surgery. It is an ideal option for those who want fat-transfer-like results without the liposuction or the hefty price.
before & Afters
The most frequently asked questions about renuva
A great way to describe how Renuva works is that it provides an empty honeycomb like structure with a bee attractant which calls bees to make honey. The bees are your fat cells that grow in the area starting after the injection, and gradually replace the Renuva that was injected. Over the course of three to six months post treatment, Renuva is eliminated by your body, leaving only your own fat cells exactly where you want them!
Renuva can help both women and men who are experiencing volume loss and/or have contour deficiencies. Patients as young as mid-30s and of various backgrounds can begin using Renuva as a preventative anti-aging treatment.
Renuva is recommended for areas where you normally have fat. It is not meant to be placed in dermal, glandular or muscular planes. For example, Renuva is not for use in the lips.
Areas of treatment can include:
Renuva is not a filler! It is the only off-the-shelf treatment that replaces fat loss with your own fat, leaving lasting results. While it varies from individual to individual, human fat cells can last up to 10 years.
The amount of injections used per treatment depends on the area being injected and your personal, unique goals. The duration of a Renuva treatment will depend on the size of the area being treated.
If you treat volume loss with fillers, or are considering fat grafting or liposuction but want a less invasive treatment plan, consult with us to find out if Renuva is right for you.
