What is Renuvion’s skin tightening?
Renuvion skin tightening is a game-changing non-surgical skin tightening modality. Renuvion skin tightening is also known as Renuvion J plasma or J-plasty. The procedure tightens mild to moderate loose skin, rejuvenating and tightening the skin. With no extensive downtime or scars, this surgery can be personalized to each treatment body part and each individual’s skin type and laxity. This skin tightening allows plastic surgeons to target the respective treatment areas and precisely control the heat of the laser to treat the designated area.
How does Renuvion’s skin tightening work?
This skin tightening procedure creates an energy stream (plasma) by using radiofrequency (RF) energy to tighten the loosened skin, and cool helium gas to cool the respective area. Inserted through a small port on the selected treatment area, the probe heats up the skin through the created stream of energy, while the cool helium gas consecutively cools down the tissue so as to not burn the skin. This radiofrequency (RF) energy is successfully focused and is done so without damaging surrounding tissues. This skin tightening procedure heat allows the tissues under the skin to contract and therefore tightens the skin.
At Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Institute, for patients with excessive skin redundancy, Dr. Arian Mowlavi, MD, FACS also uses Renuvion skin tightening as a pair with VASER high definition liposuction. VASER high definition liposuction
is also performed without any cutting, using the same port (4 mm size) as the Renuvion probe. This pairing allows patients that have severe skin redundancy to achieve tighter, more contoured, high definition results.
What areas does the Renuvion skin tightening treat?
This skin tightening can precisely manage the skin elasticity on nearly all body parts. It most commonly is used to tighten the following body parts: arms, neck, thighs, abdomen, back, flanks, and knees.
What are the benefits of Renuvion’s skin tightening?
This skin tightening surgery has many benefits, including near-immediate results and minimal downtime as contracted skin tissues and tightened skin can be seen even intraoperatively. It also offers minimal risk as compared to more invasive surgical techniques. There is also less risk to the surrounding underlying skin tissues of the treatment areas. Another benefit of this tightening procedure is the lack of scars.
