A remarkable new skin tightening device that is safe, gentle and minimally invasive.

Renuvion is a groundbreaking new treatment for skin tightening in the upper and lower body. This safe, minimally invasive procedure is excellent for treating age-related sagging and loose skin that has succumbed to a poor tone and texture. Patients typically will have about 30% tightening of the tissues after treatment. Renuvion is just one of our exciting and innovative new treatments offered at Cheng Plastic Surgery for helping Bay Area clients to look as youthful and energized as they feel on the inside.

What is Renuvion?

Whether you're appearing in front of the cameras, celebrating a special event or embarking on a new professional venture, Renuvion is an excellent partner on your journey towards beautiful, healthy skin and heightened self-confidence.

Renuvion works by combining helium plasma and radiofrequency energy. This technology gently heats the skin tissue, achieving maximum tightness in the shortest amount of time. Renuvion is painless, requiring only a local anesthetic and it can be applied while you are asleep or while you are awake. The Renuvion device emits energy that stimulates collagen growth, contributing to more resilient and supple skin structures.

Who is a good candidate for Renuvion?

Because Renuvion is minimally invasive, it is appropriate for almost every person seeking to improve the tone and texture of their skin. Clients dealing with the negative effects of aging such as skin sagging in the midsection, the thighs and the upper arms will find Renuvion especially effective in helping them to reach their aesthetic goals. As with every cosmetic procedure, a private consultation at our Bay Area office is required to make sure Renuvion is an appropriate solution for your cosmetic goals.

What can I expect from my recovery?

Recovery with Renuvion occurs within 2-5 days. You may experience some tightness or mild discomfort as you embark on your recovery, as well as some minor swelling and bruising. All of these symptoms will fully dissipate within about 2 weeks. You may receive a compression garment to help speed up your healing as well as prescriptions for pain medications should you need them.

Results with Renuvion are long-lasting and sustainable. A single treatment will result in changes that last for years. There is no scarring with Renuvion; your skin will look firm and naturally youthful. Collagen will continue to form over the course of 6 to 12 months, which will manifest as improved results over time.

Practice Policy Update from Cheng Plastic Surgery Regarding COVID-19 View Update Virtual Consultation

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

Monday, January 4, 2021:

We are open!

We cannot wait to see all of our amazing patients in our office! We are currently working with a more limited schedule than before, so please be patient as we navigate through this, together.

There are a few key changes we’ve made to our appointment protocol to ensure we are maintaining social distancing and following strict COVID-19 health and safety protocols - for you AND for us.

  1. Call our office from your car once you’ve arrived for your appointment. A staff member will come out to greet you, take your temperature and conduct a short COVID-19 health screening to make sure you are in good health prior to entering the building. Our doors will remain locked during normal business hours to ensure only those who have been screened can enter.
  2. Please arrive at your appointment wearing a mask or protective face covering. We will not be able to bring you inside the office without one.
  3. We will not have more than one patient in the lobby at a time.
  4. You will be greeted by Dr. Elbert or Dr. Jacqueline wearing their Personal Protective Equipment deemed necessary by your specific treatment. (N95 mask, gloves, face shield or protective eyewear, etc.) We ask that you leave your mask on during the procedure, and only take it off if necessary to complete the treatment.
  5. All necessary transactions will be done in the room your treatment is being performed. This will avoid unnecessary back ups in the lobby.
  6. You will then be walked out through the back door of the office. This is the best way to keep all staff and patients socially distanced while maintaining one steady flow of traffic throughout the building.

And of course, all rooms will be heavily disinfected immediately after you leave just as we have always done prior to the pandemic. Each room is equipped with an air filter as an added safety measure. We will place a major focus on high-contact areas such as chairs, doorknobs, counter tops, mirrors and more.

We are still continuing to conduct Virtual Consultations if you prefer a quicker and no-contact experience.

Virtual Consultation

For the safety of our patients and staff, we ask that you reschedule your appointment and do not enter our office with any of the following conditions:

  1. You have tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 14 days.
  2. You have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 14 days.
  3. You traveled more than 150 miles or have been in close contact with someone who has traveled in the last 10 days.
  4. You are experiencing any of the following symptoms:
    • fever or chills
    • cough
    • shortness of breath
    • fatigue
    • muscle or body aches
    • headaches
    • sore throat
    • loss of taste or smell
    • nausea, diarrhea, or vomiting

Concerned about getting the Moderna vaccine after having recently received filler treatment? In some studies, it has been observed that a small percentage of the vaccinated groups experienced localized inflammation (swelling) after receiving the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine. In said cases, all studied reactions were temporary immune responses. It has been suggested that patients refrain from getting filler two weeks before and after the vaccine. If you have any questions, please feel free to call our office!

Thank you for your continued support and we can't wait to see you again!

Kindest Regards,,

Dr. Elbert, Dr. Jacqueline and staff at Cheng Plastic Surgery
