RENUVA IN NEW ORLEANS
When you think about the various signs of aging, wrinkles and fine lines are probably the first thing that comes to mind. However, other facial and body changes can also make you look older.
Youthful skin is plump, full, and smooth, due to abundant supplies of collagen and elastin. Unfortunately, with age, your natural fat pads will diminish, especially in your face, hands, and specific body areas.
Dermal fillers like Juvéderm, Radiesse, and Restylane replace lost volume with natural hyaluronic acid. Still, your body will metabolize these products over time. The good news is that there’s a longer-lasting, non-surgical solution to volume loss. The New Orleans Center for Aesthetics and Plastic Surgery is pleased to offer Renuva, a modern and effective treatment alternative to this cosmetic concern.
WHAT IS RENUVA? HOW DOES IT WORK?
Renuva is an innovative, non-surgical aesthetic treatment that addresses age-related fat loss, replacing lost volume in the face, body, and hands. This injectable is an allograft adipose matrix from purified donated fat tissue. As it contains the same proteins and components of natural fat tissue, your body won’t notice, so there’s no allergic reaction.
Volume loss is common with aging, so the treatment helps you regain your youthful appearance and glow without a dramatic change in your facial or bodily features. So, you’ll look like you, only better.
Renuva restores facial, hand, and bodily volume with a quick and convenient in-office session. When injected, Renuva creates a matrix in targeted areas that fills with your body’s fat later. After three to six months, your body will fully replace the matrix with natural tissue.
RENUVA VS. AUTOLOGOUS FAT TRANSFERS
A significant difference between Renuva injections and autologous fat transfers is while Renuva works with your body’s fat tissue, it doesn’t contain fat cells. An autologous fat transfer involves removing fatty tissue from a donor site and re-introducing it in the target area. With this option, you can achieve more dramatic results. Still, it is a minorly invasive surgical procedure that requires extracting fat tissue through incisions.
RENUVA INJECTION BENEFITS
The Renuva treatment is increasingly popular among our patients due to these advantages.
- Minimally invasive: We’ll inject Renuva directly into the target areas. No incisions, anesthesia, or sutures needed!
- Long-lasting results: Unlike dermal fillers, Renuva outcomes can last up to a decade.
- Natural-looking: Renuva injections are perfect for patients who want subtle transformations for natural facial features and body outlines.
- No downtime: You can resume daily activities immediately after treatment.
- Satisfied patients: Our patients say they love their results.
- Convenient: Renuva is less invasive and more affordable than fat transfers.
RENUVA TARGET AREAS
Renuva can fulfill multiple purposes and simultaneously resolve several age-related concerns. These injections help improve hollowed areas at your temples or under your eyes, minimize nasolabial folds, and recontour your cheeks and the backs of your hands. In addition, it can smooth skin irregularities like cellulitis and fill depressions typically left after surgery.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING RENUVA TREATMENT?
Renuva requires an injection appointment and may require a touch up a few months down the line. Plan to spend about an hour in our office, depending on how many areas you are having treated. We will inject the Renuva with a tiny blunt needle called a cannula, and then you’ll be free to return to your daily routine.
You will see the treatment’s full effect after three months or so. After that, you can schedule a new appointment to evaluate the results and determine whether you need a touch-up injection.
REPLACE LOST VOLUME IN AN HOUR OR LESS
Renuva has multiple benefits for suitable candidates. For example, if you are considering a treatment to deliver a balanced facial appearance or younger-looking hands with no downtime, Renuva may be an ideal solution for you.
