Renuva® – Fat Grafting Results Without Liposuction.

Renuva® is a unique injectable product that provides fat graft results anywhere in the body without the need for liposuction, producing results that last up to ten years. By stimulating your body to create fat where it’s injected, you can restore lost fat in bony hands, crepey necks, hollow cheeks or temples, hip dips, fill lines in the décolletage, cellulite dimples, and anywhere else that will benefit from restored contours and smoother skin.

Access to Renuva is restricted to only elite medical aesthetic clinicians and Dr. Elliott was one of the first approved Renuva providers in the Tampa Bay area.

How Renuva® Works

Renuva® is the first and only treatment that stimulates the body to produce new fat cells in areas where it’s injected. It’s made from donated fat tissue that has been carefully processed, purified, and sterilized, following the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s requirements for donor tissue. The fat cells are removed from the tissue but the growth factors, proteins, and collagen remain. Renuva® acts as a scaffold or honeycomb foundation attracting stem cells that transform into fat. After several months, the scaffold is completely replaced by your own fat.

What Renuva® Is Best For

Renuva® can be used in any part of the body where fat naturally exists. It’s commonly used to add volume to the face and hands and to correct depressed scars, cellulite dimples, and defects from liposuction. 

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, a fat transfer may be a more cost-effective option. Renuva® is not a good treatment option if you want 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 and then Renuva is injected into the treatment area.

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. 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. 

Most Renuva® patients experience some swelling and mild tenderness in the treated areas for a few days to a week. In rare cases, tenderness can last 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 $975 and the total cost is based on the amount used.
