Renuvion® is the latest innovation in skin tightening technology, utilizing a unique combination of radiofrequency (RF) energy and helium plasma to smooth excess, crepey skin on the face and body. The cutting-edge treatment is minimally invasive and typically does not require recovery time when performed alone. Our board-certified plastic surgeon at McCormack Plastic Surgery — our advanced AAAASF-accredited surgical facility — is excited to offer Reno patients the opportunity to tighten their contours and fulfill their aesthetic goals using minimally invasive approaches.
Sometimes referred to as “J-Plasma” or “J-Plasty,” Renuvion® can provide many skin tightening benefits for patients who want to improve lax, hanging, or crepey skin. The treatment is versatile enough to smooth the abdomen, arms, thighs, lower face, hips, and many other regions of the face and body. In fact, Renuvion® is often incorporated into liposuction since the areas commonly improved during body contouring surgery align with the treatment sites that can be addressed with Renuvion®. For patients who would like to reduce fat in a given region of the body but who struggle with mild to moderate skin laxity, a liposuction plus Renuvion® treatment plan can be the perfect combination.
Led by board-certified plastic surgeon Tiffany McCormack, MD, our team can help you better understand how Renuvion® is able to non-surgically tighten skin on the face and body. After a discussion of your goals, our team can develop a treatment plan personally tailored to treat your areas of concern.
Renuvion® skin tightening is generally performed in combination with other body contouring procedures at McCormack Plastic Surgery. General anesthesia is utilized, although local anesthesia or sedation can also be used in certain cases. There is no skin excision required, allowing patients to resume their daily routine without having to undergo major downtime. After a careful discussion of your goals and areas of concern, the Renuvion® device is inserted underneath the skin through small entry points. The device then heats to the optimal temperature for tissue contraction, emitting radiofrequency (RF) and helium plasma energy to the collagen and underlying structures. This superior temperature control can allow the tissues to contract quickly and effectively, often accelerating your appointment when compared to other minimally invasive skin tightening technologies.
Most patients experience noticeably tighter, firmer, and smoother skin soon after their treatment. The outcome should improve over the next six to nine months, with a more dramatic improvement typically achieved with multiple Renuvion® treatments. Although the natural aging process will continue, Renuvion® can be a powerful minimally invasive technique to combat tissue laxity on the face and body.
