When injected into the subcutaneous space, Renuva is replaced by the body’s own fat. Renuva is an off the shelf allograft adipose matrix processed to preserve the inherent matrix of the adipose tissue. The resulting allograft serves as a framework to support cellular repopulation at the surgical site. Renuva contains the same protein components and growth factors that are in the body’s own fat.
How Does Renuva Work? Renuva is processed to maintain the structural and endogenous components of the matrix. This process also allows for retention of key matrix proteins as well as adipogenic and angiogenic factors. Once injected, vascularization and cell population results as the graft incorporates and the treatment site remodels.
Renuva is ideal for replacing both deep and superficial fat, to restore volume and smooth contours:
- Face rejuvenation nasolabial folds, marionette lines, pre-jowl, temporal & cheek filling
- Body rejuvenation depressed scars, irregular contours due to liposuction, patients lacking enough fat for liposuction
- Breast contouring
- Hand rejuvenation
- HIV related lipoatrophy
Safety Renuva passes rigorous standards for safety, proving its biocompatibility and safety for patient use. The Renuva process is designed and validated to prevent the contamination or cross contamination of tissue in accordance with FDA current Good Tissue Practices (cGTP). Renuva is tested for sterility per the standards of United States Pharmacopeia (USP)
