Skin Tightening – Body

Skin Tightening – Body

We know you do what it takes to maintain good health, and that you care about your body’s wellness. However, it can be somewhat discouraging if your body doesn’t completely reflect this mindset. You want to look as good as you feel, but if it seems like your body does not respond to your hard work and dedication, we invite you to learn about our beneficial body sculpting treatments.

It’s easy to think that diet and exercise are the be-all-end-all methods for achieving a sleeker, smoother, and slimmer figure. Unfortunately, factors like the loss of skin elasticity and aging can lead some to form unwanted pockets of body fat or the appearance of sagging skin in multiple areas of the body. Where once there were smooth curves, there now may be loose, crepey skin and pockets of fat that never seem to respond to any lifestyle change.

When diet and exercise have failed, Renew MediSpa can help you regain your firmer, smoother figure with our collection of non-invasive skin tightening and fat reducing treatments for the body. Feel confident, sexy, and powerful—and you can do it without the sacrifice of surgery.

Profound RF For the Body

Always one to adopt new, innovative treatments, Renew MediSpa is proud to have been the first practice in New Hampshire to offer Profound RF’s revolutionary skin tightening technology. Using combined microneedling and state-of-the-art radiofrequency technology, Profound RF can achieve stunning skin tightening and cellulite reduction on the body with extreme precision. Using safe, time-tested radiofrequency energy, Profound RF delivers radiofrequency energy into specific depths of the skin to encourage collagen production, treat cellulite, and to eliminate unwanted pockets of body fat.

Profound RF can target these areas for body skin tightening:

  • Thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Above the knees
  • Abdomen
  • Arms
  • Neck
  • Flanks
  • Bra Fat

Renew Medispa offers Profound RF’s two treatment tips: the dermal tip and the SubQ. The dermal tip uses 5 pairs of electrodes fitted with micro-needles, and these micro-needles enter the dermal layer of the skin at a 25-degree angle to deliver the skin tightening treatment. The SubQ tip needles enter deeper and at a 75-degree angle to reach the subcutaneous layers of the skin; it then uses heat to destroy pockets of fat for a smoother, sleeker figure.

In a randomized, blinded clinical trial published in the Dermatologic Surgery Journal May 2015 issue, Macrene Alexiades, MD, Ph.D., Associate Clinical Professor at Yale University School of Medicine showed that a 100% response rate was seen among all subjects treated with these optimal treatment parameters. This study was actually the 6th peer reviewed paper demonstrating the effectiveness of Profound RF technology.

With the combination of skin tightening and cellulite and fat reduction, Profound RF may be your solution for that smoother, sleeker, and more alluring silhouette.

TruSculpt 3D

Renew MediSpa was also the first practice in New Hampshire to offer TruSculpt 3D, an advanced radiofrequency device that has the power to perform both body contouring and skin tightening. Using expertly delivered radiofrequency heat, TruSculpt 3D can reach deep under the skin to both eliminate stubborn pockets of fat and tighten the skin.

The radiofrequency heat then triggers the body’s healing processes – the same mechanisms that allow your body to heal. Collagen production is increased, and gradually, patients should see a skin tightening effect. With just one skin tightening session, our patients can look forward to a 25-35% reduction in fat and lax skin. It’s such a significant improvement that TruSculpt 3D can deliver one of the most dramatic improvements in a short amount of time, and completely noninvasively.

TruSculpt 3D can create circumferential body contouring in areas like the:

  • Abdomen
  • Thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Flanks- “Love Handles”
  • Bra Fat
  • Back Fat
  • Submental- “Double Chin”
  • And other problem areas

With TruSculpt 3D, patients can expect no downtime and a gradual-but visible-improvement over the course of 8-12 weeks.

Viora For the Body

Renew MediSpa also offers Viora skin tightening for the body to eliminate loose skin on various areas. Viora is a noninvasive radiofrequency device that heats the layers of the dermis to encourage collagen tightening and new collagen production.


  • No downtime
  • Non-Invasive
  • No anesthesia required; mild or zero discomfort
  • Lower cost
  • Great for younger clients, or those with minor laxity

Viora for the body is helpful when laxity and textural changes are mild. Moreover, Viora for the body is often used as a “maintenance” procedure. If used as the first line of defense against aging, it works best over a series of sessions to achieve the right effect, and we recommend maintenance sessions thereafter to keep the results on point.

Renew MediSpa is an aesthetics center that is devoted to offering patients a wide range of skin tightening treatment options. We understand that not all patients can or want to undergo a painful surgical procedure, which is why we’re passionate about helping patients choose the right nonsurgical skin tightening treatment from our diverse collection of procedures. We’ll map out your treatment plan with your anatomy, visual goals, and even your financial considerations in mind.

Frequently Asked Questions
about Profound RF & TruSculpt 3D

The Profound RF microneedles deliver the exact desired temperature to an exact depth for the required time period, all while protecting the upper layers of skin from unwanted heat. The superficial layers of the skin also benefit due to the physical act of the microneedling.

We know from clinical research that when the dermis is heated to 67 degrees Celsius, collagen is “partially denatured.” This leads to neocollagenesis-a scientific term for new collagen synthesis by the skin’s fibroblasts. However, both temperature and time are important for stimulating collagen- with the “sweet spot” for skin tightening being 67 degrees Celsius for 4 seconds. With these specific parameters in mind, Profound RF’s technology creates the most optimal conditions for skin tightening.

The ideal patient for Profound RF has concerns about mild to moderate laxity (loose skin) +/- fine lines and wrinkles, or cellulite.
TruSculpt 3D is not a weight loss procedure; it’s skin tightening and fat removal for relatively healthy patients who want a sleeker, slimmer figures. Typical patients have a body mass index (BMI) of 38 or less.
Patients who are pregnant or have metallic implants, a pacemaker/internal defibrillator, or joint replacements in the treatment area cannot have the TruSculpt 3D or Profound RF procedure.
It takes approximately 15 minutes to numb the region to be treated with an injectable lidocaine. Thereafter, the procedure takes 45 to 60 minutes on average to perform, depending on the size of the area to be treated. At Renew MediSpa we also include a complimentary platelet rich plasma (PRP) application with our facial Profound RF treatments. Should you elect to have this done, additional time will be added to your appointment for your blood draw and preparation of the PRP.
At Renew MediSpa we book one-hour treatment sessions with TruSculpt 3D. In some cases, this is enough time to treat multiple areas.
It only takes one session to see remarkable results from Profound RF. Results begin to appear at about 2 weeks and continue for at least 3 months if not longer.

Injectable lidocaine is used to make the Profound RF procedure very comfortable. The lidocaine injection uses very tiny needles, but there is only a brief stinging sensation.

For TruSculpt 3D there is usually no anesthetic required.

The size of the area that can be treated is limited to some extent by the amount of lidocaine that can be used in a single session. Face and neck can certainly be treated in a single session. For the body, two 6” by 6” areas can be used for example to treat the backs of the thighs. An area larger than 12” by 12” will likely require breaking it down into 2 sessions.
This depends on the size of the region(s) of concern. Please consult with our staff to map out your treatment plan.

The following is expected after a Profound RF treatment:

  • Some degree of bruising- we find that this resolves quickly (48 to 72 hours) when we apply platelet rich plasma
  • Mild redness and brief tenderness to touch
  • Mild to moderate swelling-best described as a “puffiness”-for up to 7 days. It is most noticeable in the first 48 hours and then gradually dissipates.

Makeup can be worn after 24 hours to cover bruising or any marks from injections/needling.

Exercise can resume after 48 hours or as directed by your provider.


At Renew MediSpa, we will provide you with the topical products you will need to expedite your healing and to refine your results from your Profound RF treatment.

In general, you should avoid products such as Retinol, Retin A, chemical peel solutions, acne topicals such as salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide and the like for 7 to 10 days. If you have questions about specific topical agent use after Profound RF feel free to discuss these with your provider.

In the state of New Hampshire, aestheticians cannot perform any procedure that involves microneedling, including Profound RF.
