Apyx Medical Corp., the manufacturer of the proprietary helium plasma and radiofrequency technology marketed and sold as Renuvion, announces that “The Balancing Act” television show on Lifetime will broadcast a segment nationally on the Renuvion neck laxity procedure on Monday, February 13.

The story will feature video footage of the minimally invasive, one-hour neck procedure performed by double board-certified plastic surgeon Charles J. Galanis, MD, of Galanis Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills, Calif., on patient Shelley C., a 56-year-old mother of two from Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif. An in-studio interview by the show’s co-host, Montel Williams, with Galanis will occur to discuss this procedure with Renuvion to correct a sagging “turkey neck” and reveal the “astounding“ results on air.

Cleared by the U.S. FDA to improve the appearance of loose skin on the neck and chin, Renuvion offers patients a minimal downtime option, according to Apyx officials. The results reveal a more contoured appearance, including a tauter neckline with smoother skin, and the results will continue to improve over time. 

“I’ve always been physically fit and healthy but started noticing that my neck looks droopy in pictures,” says Shelley. “I started researching various treatments other than plastic surgery with the hopes of finding something that was minimally invasive, and that’s how I found out about Renuvion. I saw that Dr. Galanis has been doing this for quite a while, so upon consulting with him and seeing his patient results, I knew this procedure would be the ideal way for me to go.”

“The reason I like Renuvion for my patients is that for years we’ve been looking in the world of plastic surgery at ways to deliver results without putting people under the knife,” adds Galanis. “There’s really been a strong push toward what we call minimally invasive techniques, and anytime we can capture a population and maybe spare them surgery that’s where something like Renuvion is perfect. It fills the need to give people something as a means of contracting the tissue without the surgical excisions.”
