Renuvion® Skin Tightening

While minimally invasive modes of skin tightening often have limitations, Renuvion® can be a revolutionary approach to non-surgical body contouring. Commonly referred to as “J-Plasma” or “J-Plasty,” Renuvion® combines the power of helium plasma and radiofrequency (RF) energy to tighten crepey, lax, or sagging skin. As radiofrequency energy applies gentle heat energy to promote skin contraction, helium plasma cools surrounding tissues for improved patient comfort. Dr. Tiffany McCormack and Dr. Nichole Joslyn, our board-certified plastic surgeons, would be happy to develop a custom treatment plan tailored to your needs and overall goals.

What are the Benefits of Treatment with Renuvion® J-Plasma?

Renuvion® is designed to deliver helium plasma and RF energy just underneath the skin, allowing the underlying tissues to contract. As a result, treatment with Renuvion® generally offers patients:

  • Reduced laxity and improved skin elasticity
  • Sleeker contours in the arms, abdomen, hips, face, neck, or inner knees
  • Smoother, more defined look in the treated area(s)
  • Better outcomes after liposuction for individuals who have loose skin

When performed in isolation, Renuvion® is a minimally invasive treatment that doesn’t require anesthesia, extensive scarring, or downtime. Plus, this non-surgical approach to skin tightening only requires tiny access points made near the affected area, rather than long incisions. In many cases, the highest degree of improvement can be achieved by combining liposuction with Renuvion®, which offers dual fat removal and skin tightening benefits.

How is Renuvion® Skin Tightening Treatment Performed?

Renuvion® is a treatment performed at our fully-equipped operating facility. During your appointment, tiny access points are made near areas of skin laxity. The Renuvion® device then emits a precise stream of helium plasma and RF energy to the underlying collagen and internal tissues, allowing your skin to contract. General anesthesia may be utilized when Renuvion® is combined with a cosmetic procedure like a tummy tuck or Mommy Makeover, but your treatment can also be performed under local anesthesia with sedation in certain cases.

What Can I Expect From the Results of Renuvion®?

The results of Renuvion® generally unfold over time and continue to improve during the next six to nine months. This helps ensure the skin tightening achieved during treatment looks natural and complementary to your unique needs. With multiple treatment sessions, the final outcome of Renuvion® can be even more powerful. If surgery was performed, results should become more apparent as swelling subsides.

How Much Does Renuvion® Cost?

The cost of Renuvion® depends on whether your treatment was performed alone or in complement with liposuction. Other factors can also impact the total price of your Renuvion® treatment, including the extent of skin laxity in the planned treatment areas and the nature of your overall goals. Our office would be happy to provide you with a personalized cost estimate once your needs are evaluated at our aesthetic facility. Many patients find treatment more affordable with plastic surgery financing options such as CareCredit®, ALPHAEON™ Credit, and Prosper® Healthcare Lending.
