re-nu offers several treatments for those seeking to improve less than perfect skin.
For those who want to diminish unwanted facial lines without going through surgery, dermal fillers are a good choice. Changes in the face which result from a loss of fullness and/or the effects of gravity are best treated with dermal fillers. Advancements in filler products offer long lasting results with less pain than previous generation fillers. Treatments take between 15-30 minutes with minimal bruising or swelling. Re-nu offers both Radiesse and Juvaderm to achieve results which are close to those once only available through invasive surgery. Fillers can also be used to fill out depressions due to scars or birth defects.
Laser Skin Treatments
As the skin ages, it loses its elasticity and begins to exhibit fine wrinkles. Certain environmental factors, such as sun exposure and smoking, can expedite these changes. Modern aesthetic lasers can help reverse the effects of aging. These lasers fall into two main types: ablative and non-ablative . The fastest and most dramatic results are achieved with ablative lasers (commonly known as laser skin resurfacing) in which laser energy is used to vaporize layers of sun-damaged skin to reveal younger, healthier looking and tighter skin. There is associated down time and special post treatment care with this procedure. Re-nu uses fractional CO2 laser technology for resurfacing because it offers faster recovery time and maximum skin tightening when compared with traditional CO2 and Erbium-Yag lasers. For those whose schedules doesn't afford them down time, re-nu also offers non-ablative laser treatments that stimulate collagen production to gradually soften fine wrinkles in the skin. This treatment requires several sessions but patients can resume normal life immediately. pulsed dye and glass erbium laser treatments to achieve skin tightening in these areas.
Radio Frequency Treatments
re-nu is proud to offer, as part of its anti-aging arsenal, radio-frequency treatments (or RF). Radio-frequency technology utilizes radio-wave energy to heat up the skin and cause the collagen in the skin to remodel or contract as well as stimulate further production of additional collagen. Radio-frequency is a non-invasive treatment with absolutely no down time but requires several treatments to achieve optimal results. Because radio-waves can penetrate deep past the dermis into the subcutaneous tissue, radio frequency can actually help reduce sagging skin in the neck, chin, arms, abdomen, inner thighs and around the knees to yield a "lift" effect. This treatment is also great for smoothing out cellulite which is otherwise very difficult to treat.
