The growing demand for non-invasive and minimally invasive technologies to improve visible signs of aging has led to revolutionary developments in the skin tightening and facial rejuvenation industry. Patients can now choose from a variety of procedures that require almost no downtime and can be done in office, while surgeons find themselves able to cater to a new audience: those who are reluctant to admit they had a procedure, aren’t comfortable with more invasive options, or don’t want to deal with the required downtime.
Two of these new groundbreaking procedures which have been receiving a lot of positive attention lately, both for their impressive results and because of how convenient they are for patients, are MyEllevate and Renuvion. Used together or on their own, MyEllevate and Renuvion have become favorites for both patients and surgeons.
When trying to address their patients’ needs and concerns, it is common for surgeons to suggest a combination of procedures that complement each other and offer the desired youthful and natural look. MyEllevate and Renuvion is exactly that;
Renuvion by Apyx Medical, also known as J-Plasma, is a revolutionary treatment that uses helium gas and radiofrequency energy to create cold helium plasma, which is injected and used to treat the underside of the skin. This stimulates collagen production which tightens the skin. Presented as an alternative to a facelift, Renuvion can erase years of damage from one’s skin by minimizing lines and wrinkles and smoothing out the skin. Patients love it because their skin is firmer and younger-looking.
Described as “The next big thing in facial rejuvenation” by Aesthetic Insider News Magazine, MyEllevate is a minimally invasive procedure that addresses the glands and the muscles underneath the skin of the neck, an area which has often been neglected by both patients and surgeons. Unlike a facelift or a neck lift, MyEllevate doesn’t require incisions or removal of skin and can be performed under local anesthesia in a surgeon’s office. Patients love it because it is a quick procedure (about an hour), requires almost no downtime, and provides natural-looking results.
Other types of procedures and technologies have been used to complement MyEllevate, such as the skin tightening technology FaceTite by InMode and Smartlipo Precision Laser by Cynosure.
“I love the combination of Precision with MyEllevate. The results are outstanding.”

The quick bounce back into a normal routine offered by these groundbreaking new procedures has turned out to be a strong selling point for surgeons, and a real convenience for patients. It is no surprise to learn that, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the number of minimally invasive cosmetic procedures has grown nearly 200 percent since 2000, with no indication of slowing down.
