How Is Renuvion® J-Plasma® Performed?
Skin Tightening With Renuvion® J-Plasma®
Renuvion® can be performed under local or general anesthesia for a painless process. A few small incisions are made to insert the handpiece. These incisions are small and should not result in significant scarring.
An applicator is inserted under your skin, and the plasma energy is applied to the tissues underneath. This provides precise skin tightening and rejuvenation without harming the surrounding tissues.
Fat Reduction and Skin Tightening With Renuvion® and Liposuction
For patients looking for both fat reduction and skin tightening, Renuvion® combined with liposuction surgery can be a good option.
For qualified candidates, this combination can replace the need for more extensive plastic surgery procedures (such as tummy tuck surgery, arm lift surgery, or thigh lift surgery). Ideal candidates are primarily looking to eliminate excess skin and fat.
Patients whose concerns extend beyond sagging skin and excess fat may need the more extensive surgical procedures. These may include separated muscles or excessive amounts of sagging skin.
What Happens After Renuvion® Treatment?
Renuvion® J-Plasma® is an outpatient procedure. Following your treatment, you may experience some redness and skin irritation. You should wear a compression garment for the first three days after treatment to reduce swelling around your incision sites.
Most patients can resume normal daily activities within a week and rigorous exercise within two to three weeks. This timeline may change if you combine liposuction with your J-Plasma® skin tightening procedure. Renuvion® provides fast results to patients who don’t want to spend weeks recovering from more invasive surgical procedures.
Renuvion® is not a laser and does not heat to the same temperature as skin resurfacing lasers. Therefore, it allows for a quicker and less painful recovery compared to laser resurfacing treatments. During your consultation, Dr. Careaga or Dr. Durand will discuss what to expect throughout your Renuvion® J-Plasma® recovery.
Your skin will be noticeably firmer and more youthful immediately after your skin tightening procedure. Your skin tone will continue to improve over several weeks as your cells naturally rejuvenate.
Final results should become apparent within six to nine months.
