Skin Tightening with J-Plasma Renuvion
J-Plasma Renuvion is a minimally invasive treatment for both men and women that instantly firms and tightens the skin of the face, neck, and body. This revolutionary device combines the beneficial properties of helium gas and radiofrequency energy, to create cold helium plasma. The J-Plasma device is inserted under the skin through tiny incisions. This procedure is commonly combined with liposuction and in some cases, can be an alternative for both liposuction and facelift surgery.
J-Plasma treatment can be used in areas such as:
- Bra rolls
- Above the knees
- Buttocks (banana roll)
Are you a Good Candidate?
If you have loose skin due to pregnancy or weight loss, but the idea of undergoing a full tummy tuck is not for you, J-Plasma Renuvion treatment may be an alternative. Combining J-Plasma with liposuction can provide additional skin tightening results. The ideal candidate for J-Plasma has:
- Minimal to moderate signs of aging
- Moderate lines or wrinkles around the mouth
- Dark spots and acne scars
- Minimal to moderate sagging or loose skin on the body
- Loose skin on the neck (jowls), and face
- Preference for non-surgical and minimally invasive options
How Does it Work?
Your surgeon will begin the procedure by making small incisions where the J-Plasma cannula (tube) is inserted. The procedure takes about 1 hour per area, and patients can expect to see an immediate improvement in the treated area immediately after the treatment.
Cold plasma is created when helium gas is energized by radiofrequency energy. The J-Plasma device delivers cold plasma safely and accurately under the skin, contracting and tightening the skin from the inside.
Cold plasma energy is cooler than laser energy, which makes J-Plasma a safer procedure that poses less risk and damage to the tissue. There is no laser, radiofrequency, or ultrasound treatment in the market that can safely tighten and firm the skin to the extent that J-Plasma Renuvion can.
How Long is the Recovery?
The average recovery time is 1 week. Most patients can resume normal activity 1-3 days after the procedure. The complete recovery can range between 2-3 weeks.
It is normal for the neck, face, and/or body to feel tight and sore after the procedure, however, these symptoms should subside as the healing process progresses.
Side effects such as redness and mild swelling are normal. Patients typically wear a compression garment for the first 3 days on the face and 4-6 weeks for the body.
