Use of Renuvion (J-Plasma) for Skin Tightening

The human body produces collagen naturally and it is in abundance when young, but unfortunately production starts to decline at about age 25 and continues. It decreases even more in women after menopause. Collagen also decreases with other factors such as smoking, sugar and ultraviolet rays (1). Thanks to the continuous technological innovations and improvements in plastic surgery procedural techniques, there are new ways to replenish lost collagen, rejuvenate and tighten the skin. Up to date, nothing compares to the effects of Renuvion (J-Plasma) skin tightening treatments that stimulate collagen production deep within the skin’s layers. J-Plasma skin tightening is now considered to be a game-changer in the plastic surgery industry because it can help treat areas that were previously untreatable. This breakthrough technology can be especially useful for treating areas such as the knees, inner thighs, neck, abdomen, flanks and other areas with thin skin.

Renuvion (J-Plasma) is an effective, cutting-edge device approved since 2012 by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA)(2). Dramatic skin tightening results are immediate and clearly visible with J-Plasma. This innovative procedure can be combined with VASER Liposuction to tighten the skin in areas such as the thighs, abdomen and knees. Combining the unique properties of helium plasma and radiofrequency energy, Renuvion (J-Plasma) produces dramatic and immediate effects on the soft tissues and skin when paired with the VASER Liposuction machine. Using Renuvion in conjunction with the 4D High-Definition VASER Liposuction guarantees smoother contours and significantly more skin retraction. Renuvion game-changing technology will not only firm up your skin but also it will improve some of the abdominal striae or “stretch marks” that may be present. Most patients only require a single treatment with the Helium Plasma stream and plastic surgeons can see the effects in real-time to ensure optimal results.

Renuvion (J-Plasma) skin tightening device uses cool helium plasma technology on the underside of loose or lax skin to create a superb skin tightening effect. J-Plasma requires only a liposuction-sized entry incision to tighten skin. It’s mechanism of action and safety margin are unlike any other technology on the market today. The procedure involves treating areas (such as abs, flanks and thighs) with a helium plasma stream that reaches only 100 degrees Fahrenheit, unlike lasers that often reach up to 600 degrees (3). The lower level heat is especially effective for treating areas with very thin skin where collagen production is minimal. The plasma gas has the ability not to damage delicate intraabdominal organs. All other available modalities, including Laser Lipo, BodyTite, among others, rely on heat and therefore require specific temperature monitoring to avoid skin irregularities and burns. Clinically, they also do not allow for free form sculpting as Renuvion (J-Plasma) does.

Renuvion (J-Plasma) skin tightening treatment is a breakthrough plasma gas device that can effectively and reliably contour skin. Although Coolscuplting represents a sometimes-successful non-surgical modality for fat reduction, it in no way compares to the artistic sculpting ability of a well performed Liposuction. Similarly, Renuvion (J-Plasma) is able to sculpt skin better, more effectively and predictably, than other noninvasive devices. Patients usually notice results immediately and gradual improvements over time as the skin continues to retract and becomes firmer. The results should be long standing, the deep ligament support of the skin is tightened bringing the skin toward the underlying muscle, thus providing for anti-gravity protection. Renuvion (J-Plasma) most responsive body areas include the arms, axillary, breast, back rolls, hip rolls, abdomen, buttocks, legs, knees, calves and ankles.
