Turn Up Your Volume

Renuva Facial Filler at Aesthetic Plastic Surgery of Pittsburgh

Remember how plump and resilient your skin looked when you were younger? One of the main contributors to facial aging is the reduction of subcutaneous fat under the skin. Enter Renuva, a revolutionary injectable treatment that turns on the production of new fat cells to restore youthful skin tone and volume for a decade or more. This cutting-edge filler is only in the hands of highly qualified injectors like the ones at Aesthetic Plastic Surgery of Pittsburgh. Read on to learn more about this innovative product, or schedule your Pittsburgh Renuva consultation and learn how you can rebuild resilient skin from within.

The Science-Backed Beauty Hack

What is Renuva?

At Aesthetic Plastic Surgery of Pittsburgh Renuva is a unique type of injectable treatment that works by prompting fat cell production in the treatment area. Many other dermal fillers contain ingredients like hyaluronic acid that temporarily build volume. Renuva is formulated with an allograft adipose matrix that provides the building blocks for your body to produce its own new fat cells where it is injected. Once new fat cells are established, they can smooth out and plump up the treatment area for a decade or more, reducing hollows, creases, and fine lines for a revitalized appearance.

The Rejuvenation Matrix

What are the benefits of Renuva?

Diminishing fat under the skin leads to volume loss that can make your features look more hollow while emphasizing lines, wrinkles, and texture issues. Renuva provides the matrix for the creation of new fat cells, which means longer-lasting results than other fillers, with visible improvements for up to a decade or longer. Renuva also avoids “filler fatigue,” a condition where the body gets puffy or swollen as a result of too much dermal filler use. Because Renuva encourages the body to create its own fat cells, it avoids the hydration process that results in filler fatigue. Renuva is effective for use in several areas of the face and body:

  • Face: Fill in hollow areas in the temples, nasolabial folds, cheeks, or elsewhere. Contour the chin or jawline for a more smooth, balanced appearance.
  • Neck & Chest: Build volume to smooth out crepey skin, fine lines, vertical neck bands, and hollows.
  • Hands: Fill in hollows to reduce the appearance of veins, bones, fine lines, and wrinkles.
  • Body: Smooth out hip dips, cellulite, and indentations sometimes left from surgical procedures.

Renuva is administered in a series of injections in a brief, in-office appointment, making it a great option for those who want to see lasting improvements without the invasiveness and downtime of surgery.

Remodel Your Confidence

Your Renuva Procedure

The Renuva injection process is quick, often taking thirty minutes or less. The appointment begins with a consultation to help your injector understand your specific goals. Once you have collaborated to create a clear treatment plan, your skin will be numbed with a topical anesthetic for maximum comfort. Then, your injector will use a narrow needle to make a series of injections in key areas targeted to your concerns. Once this process is complete, you’ll be ready to return to your day.

Hello, Beautiful

Renuva Results

It’s possible to see some increase in volume right away. However, early on, the real work is going on behind the scenes. As the allograft adipose matrix in Renuva is gradually replaced with newly created fat cells, long-lasting volume is rebuilt. This process can take a few months, during which time you may see continued improvement. Hollows, creases, and laxity are replaced with youthful volume and softness, restoring a toned, smooth appearance. Because Renuva helps your skin build its own fat layer, the results are long-lasting–-up to a decade or longer!

Make a Lasting Impression

Renuva Recovery and Aftercare

There is no downtime after a Renuva session. It’s possible that you will have mild swelling, tenderness, or bruising around the injection areas. As any post-procedure swelling subsides, you should avoid strenuous exercise, excessive heat, and harsh products. We are always here to answer your questions before, during, and after treatment. You may begin to see a mild volume increase soon after your appointment, but your results will continue to improve for about three months as new fat cells are created.

Renuva Frequently Asked Questions

Both Renuva and fat grafting build subcutaneous fat in the treatment area. However, fat grafting requires the initial step of liposuction to collect fat from another area of the body. Fat grafting has the benefit of allowing you to sculpt away small amounts of excess fat in the donor area. On the other hand, the Renuva procedure is less invasive and comes with fewer aftercare requirements.

Many of the most popular dermal fillers on the market today are made of hyaluronic acid (HA). This includes fillers from the Juvederm, Restylane, and RHA collections. HA fillers draw moisture to the treatment area and provide results that can last six months or longer. Renuva, on the other hand, contains an allograft fat matrix that tells the body to produce new fat cells where it’s injected, providing results that can last up to ten years.

The biocompatible allograft adipose matrix in Renuva contains the same proteins, collagen, and growth factors as your own fat.

No downtime is required. There may be mild swelling, irritation, or bruising after treatment, but this generally clears up in a day or two. Your injector will instruct you to take certain precautions during these first few days, such as avoiding strenuous exercise and excess heat or sun exposure.

Patience is key, as it may take a few months for your optimal results to show up. This is because your body needs time to replace the adipose matrix in the injectable with its own fat cells. Once the new fat cells are established, you may enjoy noticeable results for up to ten years.
