Renuvion® Skin Tightening for the Body in Northbrook, IL
Loose skin on the body develops after weight fluctuations, pregnancy, and age. This looseness can hinder an individual’s level of confidence in their physique and impact their clothing choices.
Skin tightening used to require invasive surgery. While these are effective in removing excess skin, surgery is not for everyone. The Renuvion® skin tightening system can be an alternative to surgery for qualifying patients looking to reduce skin laxity.
This system offers precise and controlled tightening with minimal damage to the surrounding tissues. Dr. Schlechter offers Renuvion® skin tightening for his patients in Northbrook and the greater Chicago area.
What Is Renuvion® Skin Tightening for the Body?
Renuvion® offers non-surgical and minimally invasive skin tightening of the body, including the abdomen, arms, back, legs, and chest. This treatment uses helium plasma and radiofrequency energy to heat the lax tissues and promote tissue contraction.
Helium plasma is the result of helium gas passing through an energized electrode. This plasma is then combined with RF energy to provide controlled and precise heating of the tissues.
Renuvion® skin tightening is minimally invasive. It requires small incisions near the treatment areas that are just large enough for the Renuvion® probe to be inserted. This probe delivers plasma energy directly into the tissue to stimulate collagen and contraction. The procedure is typically performed at the time of liposuction.

How Does Renuvion® Skin Tightening Differ from Other Procedures and Treatments?
Surgical body contouring procedures like a tummy tuck, lower body lift, arm lift, or gynecomastia surgery provide tighter contours by removing excess skin. These procedures require lengthy incisions, trimming of the skin, and manipulation of the tissues. While these procedures are effective, they require moderate to significant downtime.
Some non-surgical tightening treatments require the skin to be heated at temperatures that can potentially damage the surrounding tissues.
Renuvion® skin tightening for the body heats the tissue at a lower temperature, which allows for less harm and trauma to the surrounding tissues. This procedure does not require lengthy incisions or post-surgical scarring. Many times, Renuvion® incisions do not require sutures. The Renuvion® skin tightening system is one of the safest treatments available to tighten skin.
What Is the Cost of Renuvion® Skin Tightening in Northbrook, IL?
The cost for Renuvion® skin tightening begins at $1,500. The price of your treatment will depend on the number of areas being treated, anesthesia fees, facility fees, surgeon’s fees, and whether or not liposuction is being performed in combination with Renuvion®. Dr. Schlechter will evaluate the amount of skin laxity and the depth of necessary treatment during your consultation. He will provide you with an accurate cost estimate following this evaluation.
