What is Renuva?

Renuva is an injectable cosmetic treatment that addresses volume loss caused by aging. At the height of our youth, our skin is plump, hydrated, and volumized. But our skin loses volume, and elasticity as we age. Wouldn’t it be incredible if a simple, minimally-invasive, in-office procedure could restore your skin’s youthful appearance?

Renuva is this incredible breakthrough technology that creates a matrix in the skin to support and encourage the regeneration of your own fat cells; this improves the look and feel of aging skin. The matrix stimulates collagen production, reduces wrinkles and fine lines, improves the texture and appearance of the skin, enhances facial contours, and evens out irregularities.

More About Renuva

Renuva is a non-surgical fat grafting solution designed to restore your natural contours. Renuva uses a matrix of adipose-derived stem cells to regenerate fat cells. Clinical studies have proven that these biomaterials are an effective “off-the-shelf” treatment for volume loss. [1]

Renuva vs. Fat Transfer

Patients familiar with autologous fat grafting, or fat transfer, may be curious about the differences between these procedures. Autologous adipose grafting is a relatively safe, minimally invasive, and versatile treatment. Fat can be taken from areas of the patient’s body with unwanted or excess fat, and transferred to areas where additional volume is needed. This procedure is frequently used in trauma and reconstructive surgery – especially for breast reconstruction. However, the final results are unpredictable because the transferred fat is frequently reabsorbed by the body. In fact, graft resorption rates can be as high as 90%. [2] Unfortunately, fat grafting may not always be possible if the patient does not have enough fat to harvest. [1]

Renuva is a great alternative to small-volume autologous fat transfer. Renuva can restore age-related volume loss in the face, hands, and body with a short, in-office procedure.

Let’s talk about the major differences:

  • Renuva is a minimally-invasive procedure that requires no incisions and can be performed in an office setting.
  • Liposuction, which is often used to harvest fat for transfer requires general anesthesia, incisions, and a longer recovery period.
  • Autologous fat transfer also requires a larger amount of fat to be extracted from the donor site in order to have the necessary amount of viable fat.
  • Renuva can be done in a single, quick visit.
  • Renuva is a great option for those who want to avoid the risks associated with traditional liposuction.

What are the Benefits of Renuva?

Renuva is an allograft adipose matrix, which means it is derived from naturally occurring fat cells. Renuva can provide you with predictable results, no downtime, and zero recovery period! 

In addition, it’s FDA approved and rigorously tested for purity, so you can rest assured that there will be no foreign bacteria or other dangerous materials injected into your body.

Renuva can:

  • Fill in liposuction irregularities
  • Smooth cellulite dimples
  • Be used for craniofacial reconstruction
  • Restore volume in the body
  • Volumize the cheeks
  • Erase nasolabial folds
  • Plump the hands for a more youthful appearance
  • And more!

Because the treatment requires no downtime, it can be performed right in the doctor’s office without anesthesia. The use of general anesthesia deters many patients from getting the procedures they want, so Renuva is a great option for those who would rather avoid it. Contact Dr. Abramson for a consultation in Manhattan, Englewood, NJ, or Franklin Lakes, NJ. He specializes in plastic surgery and is proud to bring you the latest medical aesthetics to suit your lifestyle.

On What Areas of the Body Can I Use Renuva?

Renuva is injected under the skin in areas where there are already deposits of fat; this injectable works with the existing fat to enhance volume. Renuva should never be injected into the lips, facial muscles, or breast tissue.

Renuva for The Face

Renuva provides long-lasting, age-defying results by restoring lost volume in the cheeks, and temples, and can reduce the appearance of nasolabial folds, and enhance other areas of the face.

Renuva for the Neck & Chest

Renuva helps smooth and tighten neck skin and replaces age-related fat loss on the décolletage, erasing vertical lines and generally smoothing the skin.

How Can I Help My Hands Look Younger?

Reduce the appearance of veins, bones, and loose skin with Renuva. This powerful treatment replenishes age-related fat loss in the hands for a more youthful look.

Renuva for Skin Depressions

Renuva can be used in many areas where fat exists to create volume, such as hip-dips, to smooth out cellulite dimples, fix irregularities from liposuction scars, and flatten depressed scars.

Renuva for Contouring

Renuva is perfect for areas of the body that don’t see results from muscle-building, such as small contour deficiencies in the buttocks or hips.

What is the Renuva Procedure?

Renuva contains the same collagens, growth factors, and proteins as your own fat cells. When injected, the growth factors and other regenerative properties in Renuva result in the production of new fat cells over a few months’ time. The matrix that results from the Renuva injections provides a framework to repopulate and vascularize cells at the injection site. Renuva should only be used in areas where there is already fat.

During your injection appointment, Dr. Abramson will ensure that you are relaxed, numbed, and ready to receive your injections. You may be asked to change into a medical garment if the injections are to be received on your body. Otherwise, you should wear clothing that helps you feel at ease and arrive with clean skin.

To get the most out of your Renuva treatment, Dr. Abramson advises against strenuous activity for 24 hours post-treatment. He also recommends following a healthy diet and skincare regimen to maintain the results of your treatment. You can expect your Renuva fat transfer to last several years with proper care.

How Long Does Renuva Stay in the Body?

With every Renuva injection, a web-like structure will eventually be filled with the patient’s body fat. In the months following treatment, this matrix created by Renuva gradually disappears as it is safely absorbed by the body– leaving behind nothing but the patient’s desired amount of fat in the injected area! What looks more natural than that? The duration of these results varies from person to person, but typically human fat cells can last up to 10 years.

Renuva vs. Hyaluronic Fillers

Hyaluronic filler treatments such as Juvederm and Restylane break down over time, resulting in decreased results and a higher out-of-pocket cost. Renuva offers an alternative to this since it gradually disappears as the patient’s own fat cells take their place.

Renuva is also a great treatment for aging hands due to its ability to replenish fat loss. On the other hand, hyaluronic fillers cannot restore lost body fat and instead simply add volume and smoothness to the skin.

What are the Results of Renuva Injections?

Patients will experience a noticeable, natural-looking increase and improvement in the appearance of the areas being treated. Results from Renuva can last anywhere from three to 10 years, depending on the individual’s age and lifestyle.

Renuva is a great way for patients to restore volume and get rid of wrinkles and depression in the skin with natural-looking results. With Renuva, you can look and feel more youthful, and experience renewed confidence in your appearance.
