Renuvion®

Renuvion®

Renuvion® is a non-surgical procedure for skin tightening. Also known as J Plasma or J Plasty, the procedure tightens and refreshes loose skin without the need for invasive surgery, extended downtime, or large surgical scars. Renuvion® cosmetic technology delivers a proprietary blend of helium plasma and radiofrequency energy to gently contract tissue with exceptional control and precision.

This precision repair is unique because plastic surgeons can apply controlled heat to target specific areas for skin tightening.

Is Renuvion® Right for Me?

Renuvion allows us to tighten sagging skin and is ideal for patients in their 40s, 50s, or early 60s concerned about mildly loose skin.

The one caveat: non-surgical skin tightening does not work well for some patients.

If you have significant skin sagging, a surgical procedure (in which excess skin is removed and tissues are physically lifted) is still going to be your best choice. In these cases, non-surgical skin treatments may be applied later to enhance your surgical results.

Renuvion® is a treatment option for patients who want skin tightening results, but do not want to do invasive plastic surgery. No other minimally invasive technology will tighten the skin to this degree with such small incisions, little to no scarring with minimal downtime.

Renuvion® can be used with tumescent or general anesthesia. Renuvion® can be used on a variety of body areas  including:

  • Neck
  • Arms
  • Abdomen
  • Thighs
  • Back
  • Knees
  • Chest
  • Buttocks
  • Breast

Procedure

The procedure is under local anesthesia or general anesthesia. Several small incisions will be made around the treatment area. Then, a cannula that is specifically designed to go under the skin is placed underneath the skin of the treatment area. The energy is applied to the underside of your skin to tighten immediately. Full results will not be visible for six weeks.

Recovery

After Renuvion treatment you will received post op instructions from Dr. Nitta. You may receive a post-operative garment to wear for a period of time to make recovery more comfortable. Most patients require several days of healing and rest before returning to normal activites. However depending on the area being treated the downtime may vary. Although minimal recovery time is needed to heal, we suggest avoiding strenuous exercise, so your body has time to adjust from the treatment.
