Skin Tightening and Body Lift

Renuvion®, previously known as J-Plasma®, is the ultimate in skin tightening and body firming technology providing dramatic results with lower risks and recovery time of more invasive surgery.

Renuvion® is a minimally-invasive outpatient procedure that is performed under local anesthesia.

What is Renuvion®?

Renuvion® is a minimally-invasive procedure to help you achieve a sculpted, firm body with less expense, downtime, and discomfort than traditional excisional plastic surgery procedures. Delivering heat to tissue in a way that was never before possible, Renuvion® utilizes technological advances in cool plasma energy to provide rapid tissue contraction without excising the extra tissue and creating long scars.

Renuvion® can firm and tighten the skin in the following areas:

  • Abdomen
  • Arms
  • Back (upper and lower)
  • Bra Area
  • Breasts
  • Buttocks
  • Cellulite
  • Chest
  • Flanks
  • Knees
  • Thighs (inner and outer)
  • Face
  • Neck
  • Stretch marks

Am I a Candidate?

Patients with mild to moderate loose skin caused by age, weight loss, or pregnancy are the ideal candidates for this procedure. Renuvion® is also ideal for patients who have had prior liposuction or non-surgical body contouring treatments and would like further tightening, toning, and lifting. It can also help to significantly improve stretch marks.

Diabetics, traditionally having a high risk of wound complications, and individuals who have a lot of extra loose skin due to massive weight loss can also see improvement, but may be better served by other procedures.

How Does It Work?

This innovative procedure device combines radiofrequency energy with helium plasma cooling to heat, and subsequently tightens and contracts skin and subcutaneous tissue. Renuvion® is performed in-office at Premier Vein & Body by Schwartz and takes about an hour per area treated. Using local tumescent anesthesia, Dr. Craig Schwartz begins the procedure with small incisions that are strategically placed on the area of the body to be treated. He will then use the Renuvion® device subdermally (beneath the skin) to deliver helium plasma, which will instantly begin to shrink, tighten and firm your tissue and skin from the inside out. This game-changing technology produces early results, which continue to improve over the next several months as new collagen forms.

The Renuvion® technology (J-Plasma®) is new to the cosmetic industry but has been used extensively for other types of medical procedures. Renuvion® uses cold plasma on the underside of your skin to instantly tighten and reshape your body. Cold plasma energy is created when helium gas is energized by radiofrequency energy (RF), turning it to “plasma”, which is then delivered through the Renuvion® system. Since helium is a very stable gas, it can be ionized at very low energy levels, making it flexible, precise and safe. Compared to laser energy, cold plasma is cooler, making the Renuvion® procedure very safe, with fewer risks and potential for thermal energy or skin burn, compared to traditional laser skin tightening.

What Results Will I See?*

Some significant improvements will be noticeable in the first days and weeks following your procedure as your skin instantly begins to shrink and contract, though your body will continue to see improvements over the next six to twelve months as the skin continues to shrink and firm.

Is There Any Downtime?*

Recovery is very similar to, or even less than, in-office liposuction procedures. Following your Renuvion® procedure, depending on the body area treated, you should be able to return to work within just a few days, and possibly even the next day, and return to strenuous exercise within one to two weeks. You may experience some mild to moderate discomfort, which can be controlled with medication as needed.
