What Is Renuvion J Plasma?
Renuvion is a non-surgical skin tightening treatment. The technique, also known as J Plasma tightens sagging skin and stimulates collagen production without invasive surgery, prolonged downtime, or prominent surgical scars. J Plasma Chicago is available in our office.
This precise treatment is a game-changer because plastic and cosmetic surgeons use it to tighten the skin in places in people with good skin quality in place of skin excision.
What Is the Process of Renuvion Skin Tightening?
The Renuvion process begins with the specialist creating a small entry site and inserting the device beneath the skin. Once the gadget is in position, the technician uses pro helium gas and radiofrequency (RF) to generate a precise stream of radiation (plasma).
This energy provides enough heat to constrict the skin while cooling the treatment region with extra helium gas. This combination of power tightens the skin by contracting the tissues directly beneath it.
Renuvion is used to tighten the skin in nearly any part of the body. Typical regions include:
- Arm lift
- Belt lift (abdomen & sides)
- Breast lift
- Butt lift
- Thigh lift
- Lower face and neck lift
- Knee lift
- Tummy tuck
Is This Skin Tightening Procedure Right for Me?
Renuvion is a therapeutic option for people who wish to tighten their skin without undergoing invasive cosmetic surgery. There is no other minimally invasive method that will tighten the skin to this extent with such a:
- Tiny incision
- Little or no scarring
- Minimal downtime
How big are the incisions for my Renuvion, aka J Plasma treatment?
The tiny incisions, only a few millimeters broad, are made. This gives the surgeon access to insert the probe to allow fast heating followed by cooling, only heating the tissue and collagen but not diffusing the heat to the skin’s surface. Unlike other heat-based skin tightening procedures that might cause burns, Renuvion technology is designed to prevent burns with an automated heat and cooling process.
Using J-Plasma in Conjunction with Other Therapies
J Plasma can be coupled with other procedures like liposuction to provide a more dramatic and soothe end effect. Patients want to eliminate pockets of extra fat while tightening the skin by combining liposuction with J Plasma. Liposuction and J Plasma complement each other nicely, and many patients can obtain excellent outcomes by combining these two therapy methods. One rejuvenates and tightens the skin at the treatment area, whereas liposuction removes excess fat. This is an essential combination for smooth results. Otherwise, you can end up with rippled or a saggy skin effect.
Both men and women use J Plasma therapy from Chicago Breast and Body to tighten the skin and restore a youthful appearance to parts of the body that have begun to droop and become loose. Our patients range from the late ’20s to in their ’60s and beyond. They come to us for treatment for a variety of problems in various parts of the body. J Plasma is frequently the therapy of choice for individuals with loose skin due to age, weight reduction, or pregnancy. However, it is good to note that as skin loses its elasticity with age, the effectiveness of Renuvion diminishes.
How Quickly Do I See The Tightening Effect?
Patients that have Renuvion see immediate skin tightening. However, the tightening effect keeps going for several months. By contracting the soft tissues, it starts the collagen rebuilding process called neocollagensis. This process takes 6-9 months for the full effect.
When Is a Patient Not a Candidate for Renuvion J Plasma?
There are three specific types of patients in which a patient would not be a good candidate for J Plasma skin tightening.
- The age of the patient. The older a patient is, the more likely their skin elasticity is insufficient to respond to the treatment. Renuvion requires a certain amount of skin elasticity to get the “shrink wrap” effect.
- The amount of fat to be removed is too significant for the skin to snap back smoothly. When liposuction is extensive, the skin has become stretched beyond its normal range. Elasticity is not sufficient to return the skin to a smooth, even tone, and in this case, patients have redundant skin.
- After a significant weight loss or multiple pregnancies: Let’s face it, our skin can only stretch so far so many times. Excess weight gain and pregnancy create stretch marks, places where the skin is to the breaking point in a manner of speaking. Stretch marks are scar tissue with little to no elasticity. Unfortunately, after a big weight loss or multiple pregnancies, patients will have a lot of extra, stretched skin.
In these cases, the proper solution is skin excision or removal of the excess skin. When a talented cosmetic or plastic surgeon removes skin, they ensure the incisions are in places readily hidden by clothing and with precise attention to how neatly incisions heal.
