Am I a Good Candidate for Renuva Adipose Matrix?
To determine if Renuva is the best option for you, schedule a formal evaluation with a board-certified dermatologist and fat grafting specialist like Dr. Emer, who can assess your needs and create a long-term treatment plan to meet your aesthetic goals. While Renuva has a wide range of applications, synthetic donor fat is primarily intended for small-volume improvements, such as atrophic scars, cellulite, and stubborn dimples.
For those seeking high-volume enhancements, Dr. Emer may propose alternative solutions, including autologous fat transfer via a Hi-Definition Liposuction procedure and/or surgical implants for significant improvement. A combination of Renuva with Sculptra or Bellafill may also provide a greater degree of volumization.
What Can Renuva Treat?
Renuva can effectively restore volume and improve indentations and irregularties throughout the face and body. Dr. Emer often incorporates Renuva in treatment plans for:
- minor defects, divots, or indentations in the skin
- cellulite or dimpling in the thighs and buttocks
- facial volume loss, hollows, and folds
- facial contouring and sculpting, including augmentation of the temples,
- heeks, and lips
- atrophic acne scars
- hand rejuvenation
- muscular definition, contouring, and volumization in the chest, shoulders, abdominals, biceps, and calves
- natural breast augmentation
- non-surgical Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL)
- non-surgical penile enlargement
How Does Renuva Work?
Renuva is an allograft (i.e. a tissue graft from a donor) adipose matrix specifically designed to treat small-volume aesthetic irregularities. The product is derived from cadavers’ fat cells, which are meticulously tested, screened, and purified. The fat cells are also hydrated in fluid to ensure smooth administration to the desired treatment areas.
Once injected, Renuva forms a matrix or supportive framework beneath the skin and recruits your existing surrounding fat cells to repopulate and build volume in the area. The result is an instant plumping effect, enhanced long-term collagen production, and improved skin texture and tone over the course of three to six months.
After that period of time, Dr. Emer can determine if additional treatments would be beneficial to further improve the results. Dr. Emer often combines both Renuva Adipose Matrix and autologous fat grafting with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and Sculptra injections to provide additional volume and collagen production.
How Long Do Renuva Improvements Last?
When injected properly, both synthetic fat grafting and autologous fat transfers offer permanent improvement in skin tone, texture, volume, and contouring. A series of treatments are often needed to adequately produce the desired textural and volume enhancements. Dr. Emer recommends that his patients schedule Renuva treatments every 6 to 12 weeks until optimal improvement is achieved.

What to Expect
As with any injectable treatment, there may be some sensitivity, discomfort, or redness in the treatment area, but there is minimal downtime following the procedure. Although swelling may persist for up to two weeks after injection, patients can resume everyday activities immediately following the treatment.
How Much Does Renuva Cost?
The price of your Renuva procedure will depend on the number of injections needed to achieve your desired outcome. Dr. Emer will review your recommended treatment plan and all associated costs at your consultation.
