Achieve smoother, more youthful looking skin
Renuva®, is a revolutionary new skin treatment that improves skin tone, texture, and volume. Dr. Bednar is one of the first ever to offer Renuva®, and he offers the treatments right here at Amae Plastic Surgery Center.
What is Renuva®?
Renuva® is an allograft adipose matrix engineered to treat small-volume aesthetic irregularites, the kind that detract from smooth contours and flawless skin. Renuva is created from natural tissue to repair and fix bothersome divots, dents, and dimples. The entire procedure is performed in office and involves tiny injections of allograft fat tissue into one or more affected areas.
Renuva® Adipose Matrix involves injecting donor tissue into a treatment area. Unlike other fat harvesting procedures, Renuva® Adipose Matrix uses donor tissue instead of a patient’s own body fat. Using your own body fat requires a liposuction procedure, making Renuva® Adipose Matrix less invasive and allowing for quicker recovery. Donor tissue will merge with your own tissue and encourage new tissue growth – leaving you with improved skin tone, volume, and appearance.
Some of the conditions Renuva® can be effective for include:
- Scarring from a previous liposuction procedure
- Small skin defects
- Cellulite dimpling
- Aging hands
What to Expect During the Procedure
The entire procedure takes only a few minutes. Dr. Bednar will use an ultra-fine needle to make the injections. Once Renuva® is injected it will begin going to work. You may experience some discomfort at the treatment areas during and after treatment, but any discomfort you feel will quickly disappear. A localized anesthetic can be used to minimize discomfort during the procedure.
