What Is Renuva?

Are you experiencing age-related volume loss, such as sunken cheeks or sagging areas of the face? You may be a perfect candidate for non-surgical Renuva treatments at VIVIFY Medspa! Renuva is an FDA-approved treatment using purified donor fat injected directly into your problem areas. Renuva is a matrix that is injected in areas where fat pads live and stimulates the body to produce fat in the areas it is injected. 

What to Expect

A member of our dedicated staff will determine if Renuva is best for you based on your specific areas of concern and desired outcomes. At the beginning of the procedure, a topical anesthetic is applied to the treatment sites to make you more comfortable, and the Renuva is injected into your problem areas using a small needle or cannula. The injection area is then massaged to ensure proper disbursement of the Renuva. We recommend applying ice to the treated area after your appointment to reduce any swelling that may occur. You may see minor bruising, but this should rapidly improve. This non-surgical procedure takes about 30 minutes to an hour to complete. Renuva injections require little downtime, and most daily activities can be resumed within 24 to 48 hours.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

Board-certified nurse practitioner, Michelle Buchanan, will determine how many treatments you require, but typically, Renuva is applied in 2 – 3 treatments over several weeks. You can expect to see results in about three months as your body makes its own fat in response to the injection. During your consultation, the VIVIFY medspa staff will customize a treatment plan based on your desired results.

What Are the Benefits of Renuva?

A customized Renuva treatment plan at VIVIFY medspa offers cutting-edge benefits to restore lost volume and enhance features that other dermal fillers can't, including:

  • Does not require liposuction or fat harvesting
  • Leverages the body's natural ability to produce fat
  • Provides volume and smoothes indentations and dimpling
  • Creates results for multiple body areas (face, hands, body)
  • Contours and shapes the skin
  • Achieves natural-looking, long-lasting results
  • Fast and easy procedure
  • Little downtime with a quick recovery period
  • No surgery or scarring

Am I a Candidate for Renuva?

Individuals who want additional fullness in the face or body in areas that appear hollow, thin, or deflated may be suitable candidates for Renuva injections. This can include age-related volume loss in the hands or face, indentations from scars, hip dips, and more. This treatment is even more desired because it provides a more natural approach to creating results by stimulating fat production rather than synthetic fillers. With this method, there is little worry about rejection.
