Tighten and sculpt loose skin without scarring or extensive downtime
Renuvion® is a non-surgical skin tightening procedure sometimes known as J-Plasma. It works by inserting a specialized handpiece through a small entry in the skin, then releasing helium gas and radiofrequency energy. This process generates plasma, a precise stream of energy that can generate heat and contract collagen. At the same time, the helium gas cools the tissues to prevent heat damage. The result is controlled, effective skin tightening with a quick and easy treatment session at our luxurious Orange County suite.
Renuvion requires only a tiny incision in the skin that leaves virtually no scarring. During your treatment session, you’ll relax in our comfortable treatment suite. You’ll be administered a local anesthetic so you’re comfortable throughout, and your board-certified plastic surgeon will treat the area of concern. Once finished, you can return home.
Renuvion is an excellent option for patients looking for skin tightening without an extensive surgical lift. This means it’s best for mild to moderate sagging skin in patients who still have good skin quality. You should be in overall good health and at a stable weight (so you don’t experience future weight fluctuations that can negatively impact your results). If you have more moderate or severe skin laxity or stubborn fat, you may need to consider other options or pair Renuvion with a surgical procedure such as liposuction or a tummy tuck.
Renuvion is most commonly used on the following treatment areas:
- Abdomen and waist
- Back and “bra rolls”
- Neck and lower face
The biggest benefit of Renuvion is that there’s minimal visible scarring and minimal downtime versus a more invasive surgical procedure.
After your Renuvion treatment, it’s important to wear a compression garment on your treatment area to reduce swelling and help your skin adhere to the new contours. You should wear this full-time for at least 6 weeks. It’s normal to have some swelling, tenderness, and bruising at the treatment area, but this improves over the course of 1-2 weeks. You’ll begin to see results at around 2-3 months, but it can take up to 6-12 months for your final results to emerge.
Although you can return to your normal schedule the next day after treatment, you should make sure to postpone your exercise regimen until otherwise indicated by your plastic surgeon. This is because intense exercise can impact your circulation and healing ability. You’ll be given a list of detailed aftercare instructions so make sure to follow them and contact our office with any questions.
Most patients require only a single treatment with Renuvion, and your plastic surgeon will create a customized treatment package for you including our best non-surgical cosmetic treatments during your private consultation.
