Dr. Katerina Gallus of Restore SD Plastic Surgery is one of the few plastic surgeons and only female surgeon in San Diego and Southern California to offer procedures with Renuvion® skin tightening for body.
“I am extremely excited to offer the revolutionary skin tightening benefits of the Renuvion® system to my patients as it addresses loose skin in those hard to treat areas such as the neck, arms and upper thighs without the need for a surgical incision.”
Renuvion® is the result of extensive scientific research and clinical development with far reaching applications. Because of its proprietary balance of helium and RF energy, Renuvion® offers a safe means to control the heat required to induce sub dermal skin tightening. Renuvion® is ideal for procedures where precision and control are key to an effective treatment. It can be combined with liposuction to reduce stubborn areas of fat and tighten sagging skin in the areas such as the arms, thighs, and abdomen with just one treatment. Due to its minimally invasive nature, it can also be performed under local anesthesia in the office setting.
Doctor Gallus employs this innovative technology to apply plasma energy to the soft tissue, inducing a contraction effect that is gentle on tissue and continues for 6 months after the procedure. This includes an application combined with her SAFELipo® technique for arms, abdomen, and thighs. It also provides a non-surgical option for patients interested in neck lift but not ready for the recovery time and expense of invasive surgery. This unique technology has received US FDA clearance and multiple International approvals for the cutting, coagulation and ablation of soft tissue during open surgical procedures.
