Skin Tightening and Body Lift
RENUVION, also 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.
Benefits of Renuvion
- Local anesthesia
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:
- Back (upper and lower)
- Bra Area
- Thighs (inner and outer)
BEST CANDIDATES FOR RENUVION
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.
Diabetics, traditionally having a high risk of wound complications, and individuals who have a lot of extra loose skin due to massive weight loss are better served by other procedures.
How Renuvion Works
This innovative procedure device combines radiofrequency heating with helium plasma cooling to tighten and contract skin and 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 sub-dermally (beneath the skin) to deliver cold plasma, which will instantly shrink, tighten and firm your tissue and skin from the inside out. this game-changing technology produces immediate results, which continue to improve over the next several months as new collagen forms.
COLD PLASMA VERSUS LASER ENERGY
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 compared to traditional laser skin tightening.
Some significant improvements will be noticeable in the first days and weeks following your procedure as your skin instantly shrinks and contracts, though your body will continue to see improvements over the next six to twelve months as the skin continues to shrink and firm.
Recovery is very similar to in-office liposuction procedures. Following your Renuvion procedure, you should be able to return to work within two to five days and return to strenuous exercise within two weeks. You may experience some mild to moderate discomfort, which can be controlled with medication as needed.
