Lax or sagging skin can develop on multiple areas of the body as we age – this is a result of collagen loss, which in turn reduces the skin’s elasticity. Renuvion is a skin-tightening treatment that harnesses the power of helium plasma, sometimes referred to as j plasma, and radiofrequency energy to target sub-dermal connective tissue, causing collagen contraction and production that firms up and rejuvenates the skin. But what does Renuvion cost?
This article will explore the cost of Renuvion and answer some of the most common questions that patients have about the skin tightening procedure.
The CREO Clinic’s Medical Director, Dr. Omar Tillo, has used Renuvion to successfully tighten the skin. As a body contouring specialist, Dr. Tillo is conscious of the decisive role skin firmness plays in body aesthetics and works to make artful adjustments to the physique.

Average Cost of Renuvion in the UK
Depending on the clinic and other important variables, such as the skill of the physician, the anaesthetic used, and the number of areas treated, the cost of Renuvion can vary.
At the CREO Clinic, Renuvion skin tightening begins from £6,500. The price then increases with each additional area treated. A full cost breakdown will only be available after your initial consultation with Dr. Tillo, who will create a treatment plan tailored to your needs.
Factors Influencing the Cost
Expertise of Physician
One of the first factors to consider when planning your Renuvion skin tightening treatment is the experience of your physician with the technology. The more time and training your surgeon has invested in understanding Renuvion, the more skilled, and therefore more costly, they may be. It is important to bear this in mind – you may need to pay a little more to retain the skills of an experienced practitioner, but this is likely to yield better results.
Size and Number of Treatments
Naturally, the addition of each area treated with Renuvion incurs a greater cost. Also, larger areas tend to be more expensive than smaller areas – treatments on the face, for example, may cost less than on the abdomen or thighs. When planning your Renuvion treatment, seek advice from a practitioner on the number of areas you need to treat, as this will give you a clearer picture of the cost overall.
Type of Anesthesia
The type of anaesthetic used will depend largely on how complex and sensitive your treatment is. Larger areas with more skin laxity that take more time may justify the use of general anaesthetic, whereas smaller areas can be treated with a local anaesthetic. A general anaesthetic is typically more expensive than a local anaesthetic.
Areas of the Body Treated
Renuvion can treat almost any area around the body where lax skin is in excess. However, there are some areas that are more popular for Renuvion treatment:
Face and Neck
The loose skin that can appear under the chin and around the jawline is a common target for Renuvion. The combined application of cold plasma energy and radiofrequency energy can work to flatten jowls and tighten up the skin under the chin. ‘Turkey neck’ is another phenomenon Renuvion can reduce – firming up the skin and preventing it from hanging loose.
The lax skin at the backs of the upper arms – sometimes known as ‘bingo wings’ – is another important concern that Renuvion can address. The skin at the backs of the upper arm can loosen as we age and become an aesthetic concern, one which Renuvion can improve through stimulating collagen production, collagen contraction, and rejuvenation.
Sagging skin on the thighs can cause us discomfort and stop us from wearing certain clothes or enjoying certain activities. Renuvion treatment can address sagging skin across the thighs, applying heat energy to the connective tissue and contracting the skin back more tightly against the body. Renuvion can be a highly effective alternative to a thigh lift for patients with milder skin laxity, for example, and is an attractive option for patients who would prefer no scarring, minimal scarring, or to avoid more invasive procedures.
One of the most common areas for the accumulation of lax skin is around the abdomen. Pregnancy requires abdominal skin stretching in order to accommodate the growing foetus, and this stretched skin may not restore itself after giving birth. Hanging pouches of inelastic skin can cause discomfort when wearing tight or revealing clothing. Renuvion can alleviate these concerns by stimulating natural collagen production to tighten and flatten the tummy for a more aesthetically pleasing midriff.

The Costs of Renuvion and Liposuction Compared
At the CREO Clinic, the cost of liposuction begins at £3,900, whereas Renuvion begins at £6,500. However, liposuction is designed to reduce stubborn pockets of fat only, not firm up the skin.
Can You Get Renuvion With Liposuction?
Yes, Renuvion can be performed with liposuction with excellent results. Liposuction reduces the amount of fat deposits in areas around the body and can sometimes leave a degree of mild laxity. Combining Renuvion with liposuction provides a holistic, minimally invasive procedure that simultaneously removes the fat deposits and contracts the skin, helping to remove the laxity and providing a high-definition, finely textured contour.
Insurance and Financing Options for Renuvion
Renuvion is not available on the NHS, but our financing partner, Chrysalis Finance, offers a variety of financing options to help you spread the cost of your Renuvion over multiple instalments.
How Long Does Renuvion Last?
While the longevity of Renuvion results can vary depending on the patient, its results are effective for a long time after the procedure. The results it provides can last for several years before a ‘top up’ may be needed to rejuvenate the skin once more and fight the effects of ageing skin.
Are Renuvion Results Permanent?
While the results of Renuvion are not permanent, they are extremely long-lasting, and you may not require further treatment for several years after your procedure.
Is Renuvion Worth It?
Renuvion can provide transformative results for patients, offering relief from the concerns caused by lax skin and giving them a boost of confidence. With the ability to tackle laxity all around the body, Renuvion can help reinvigorate the skin, instilling it with a youthful appearance and a vibrant tone that makes the procedure a highly worthwhile endeavour.
