As the forehead ages, horizontal brow lines and vertical frown lines between the eyebrows become more prominent. For years, the main cosmetic solution for addressing these lines was with surgery, specifically brow lift. However, patients can now enjoy a non-surgical treatment that offers most of the same benefits as brow lift.
Double board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Melinda Lacerna is Bradenton and Sarasota, Florida’s top provider of Renuvion. This advanced skin tightening technology allows her to perform a minimally invasive brow lift on her patients, achieving younger and more attractive-looking faces, all without the scarring or significant downtime.
How Renuvion Works
Renuvion is an FDA-approved treatment that uses a combination of radiofrequency energy and helium plasma to tighten the skin. After a half-hour treatment, the patient’s skin should immediately appear firmer, but the results gradually get even better in the ensuing months as collagen production (stimulated by the heat energy) continues to smooth and lift the skin.
When used for skin resurfacing rather than tightening, the downtime for Renuvion can be more significant, with swelling and redness mostly subsiding after two weeks.
Changes Patients Can Expect from Renuvion’s Non-Surgical Brow Lift
Following a Renuvion treatment, patients can expect to see a smoother forehead with less pronounced lines. Frown lines are minimized if not outright eliminated. Additionally, the arch of the eyebrow is lifted to a more youthful position.
Patients who take good care of their skin by moisturizing and avoiding sun exposure can see the results of Renuvion last upwards of five years. Some patients elect to undergo multiple sessions of Renuvion (spaced several months apart) to maximize the results.
