With Renuva®, fat grafting is as easy as a dermal filler treatment.

Renuva® is an injectable product that provides fat graft results anywhere in the body without the need for liposuction and the results can last up to ten years. Bony hands, thin, crepey necks, hollow cheeks, and cellulite dimples are just some of the areas where Renuva can replace lost fat.

How Renuva® Works

Renuva® is the first and only treatment that stimulates the body to produce new fat cells where it’s injected. It’s a product made from donated fat tissue that has been carefully processed, purified, and sterilized, in accordance with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s requirements for donor tissue.

Containing the same growth factors, collagen, and proteins present in autologous fat, Renuva® acts as a scaffold or honeycomb, that fills in with your own fat cells over time.

Since there is some variability among individuals in the amount of fat produced by Renuva®, two or three small treatments are recommended, done at least three months apart, to avoid over-correction. Maximum improvement is usually seen about six months after treatment.

What Renuva® Is Best For

Renuva® can be injected in any area where fat naturally exists and it can be used to provide small amounts of volume almost anywhere on the body. It’s commonly used to add volume to the face and hands and to correct depressed scars, cellulite dimples, and defects from liposuction. Renova can also be used to provide a thin layer of fat to smooth crepey skin.

When Renuva® Isn’t A Good Option

Renuva® is not recommended for use under the eyes or in the lips. When larger amounts of volume are desired, it may be more cost-effective to transfer your own fat. Renuva® is not a good treatment option if you desire maximum results immediately.

What To Expect With A Renuva® Treatment?

Renuva® treatments are very similar to treatments with dermal fillers. After photographs are taken, an anesthetic cream is applied for about fifteen minutes before the treatment is performed. Renuva® is then carefully placed under the skin and the treated area is massaged.

Some volume is noticed immediately but it slowly increases over the following months. Increasing volume from the new fat cells tends to become visible about twelve weeks after the treatment. Maximum results occur at about six months. If desired, Renuva® treatments can be repeated after twelve weeks.

Most Renuva® patients experience some swelling and mild tenderness in the treated areas for a few days to a week but occasionally it can last up to several weeks.

Unlike hyaluronic acid fillers, Renuva® can’t be dissolved, so it’s recommended that you try a temporary filler to the area you’re considering for Renuva® first, to make sure you like the results.

Prices for Renuva® treatments start at $900 and the total cost is based on the amount used.
