What is Renuva Fat Allograft Matrix?

Renuva® is an injectable allograft adipose matrix implant. Renuva® is a biocompatible, Human, Cell, and Tissue Product (HCT/P) derived from donated human adipose (fat) tissue. Allograft tissue products have been around for many years, in the form of bone tissue, tendon/ligament tissue, and skin (dermal) tissues.

Renuva® is intended for the replacement of damaged or inadequate integumental adipose tissue matrix. Renuva® Allograft Adipose Matrix may also be used for the reinforcement or supplemental support in underlying adipose tissue matrix as the result of damage or naturally occurring defects.

Renuva® is applied via injection into subdermal planes of tissue (under the skin) to correct minor surface irregularities and/or defects.

Is Renuva right for me?

Renuva® is the ideal solution for both women and men dealing with small skin surface irregularities. Renuva® is very effective in camouflaging scarring indentations from previous surgeries, cellulite dimples, minor facial lines and wrinkles, as well as adding volume to those who have lost facial volume. Renuva® also helps with hand rejuvenation, cheek and temple filling, as well breast contouring. It is ideally best used for small volume soft tissue defects.

Is it Safe?

Renuva® is FDA-approved and safe. It doesn’t contain DNA, cells, lipids, or live components. Renuva® only leaves the extracellular matrix and growth factors to be injected. This combination helps to stimulate your own natural fat production.

    How long does a Renuva treatment take?

    Renuva® comes as a pre-loaded syringe. The preparation and procedure time to complete treatment takes anywhere from 30 to 60-minutes depending on how many areas are being treated. To ease any discomfort, we can apply a topical numbing cream prior to injecting. The great thing about Renuva® is that it provides a similar effect to fat grafting to add volume and fullness but does not require local or general anesthesia.

    What patients would best benefit from this treatment?

    Patients with a troubling, small volume defect that is concerning or unaesthetically pleasing would benefit from a Renuva® treatment. Good candidates for Renuva® are those with slight surface irregularities or small minor volume defects.  Such defects could include a traumatic incident, a previous liposuction procedure, or a natural contour deformity.

    Patients can also use Renuva® as a natural filler. It can be used anywhere from the buttock, hips, face, breasts, etc. Renuva® is a great natural alternative to keep patients looking youthful and stunning without undergoing surgery.

    What is the recovery time for Renuva injections?

    Renuva® requires no downtime. Patients are able to resume their daily activities immediately following their Renuva® treatment. Some patients experience redness, slight swelling, or soreness at the injection sites. These symptoms typically reside within 1 to 2-weeks of your recovery. We advise not to touch the area (site) which has received the fat for at least the first week following treatment because it is important that the inserted fat will remain in the desired position.

    How long before results are noticeable?

    Patients see an improvement immediately in the appearance and volume of their skin after their Renuva® injections. However optimal results will be evident around the third and fourth week after the injections. These results continue to improve until the third month after treatment, as the tissue and fat surrounding the injection adheres to Renuva’s® introduced fat scaffolding. Patient’s skin will look fuller, smoother, and overall younger!
