What are the Limitations of Renuvion?

To appreciate the limitations of Renuvion we must understand how Renuvion works.

How does Renuvion Work?

Renuvion j plasma technology involves the controlled thermal heating of collagen molecules using helium activated radiofrequency energy. This thermal energy can shrink-wrap collagen like an accordion thus shortening collagen-containing molecules. We have previously described how skin excess may occur in two vectors. First, excess skin in the horizontal vector is characterized as skin redundancy. Second, excess skin in the vertical vector is characterized as skin laxity.

What is the main benefit of Renuvion?

The main benefit of Renuvion is to contract the skin excess in the vertical vector thus reducing skin laxity. This tightening effect on the skin occurs by tightening support cables that span between the skin and muscle called cutaneous retinacular ligaments. The net effect of Reunvion skin tightening is that it will matt your skin down to the muscles. Skin from your belly will not pull away from your body when you lean over. For older women, it means that their underarm skin will not stretch down, termed bat wings. For clients with a full neck, it means no more turkey gobbles.

Limitations of Renuvion

The limitation of Renuvion is that it does not eliminate horizontal skin excess, otherwise described as skin redundancy. Skin redundancy requires the elimination of horizontal skin excess typically with surgical excision procedures. If skin excess is one of your concerns, we recommend you consider an evaluation by one of our Surgicsculpt surgeons to determine whether you have horizontal or vertical skin excess and learn more about the limitations of Renuvion. Your consultation will educate you on whether you will make a good candidate for Renuvion skin tightening.

Limitations of 360 lipo + Renuvion

+ Renuvion, also known as J-Plasma, is a popular combination procedure for addressing stubborn fat deposits and mild to moderate skin laxity. However, it has its limitations when it comes to significant skin laxity in patients who have recently undergone massive .

One of the primary limitations of 360 lipo + Renuvion in addressing significant skin laxity is its inability to remove excess skin. While the procedure can effectively remove , it does not address the stretched or that often accompanies massive weight loss. This is because liposuction primarily focuses on fat removal rather than skin tightening.

Patients who have recently undergone massive weight loss usually have significant amounts of excess skin that require removal. In such cases, a tummy tuck, circumferential body lift, or other body lifting procedure may be more beneficial. These procedures involve removing excess skin and tightening the remaining skin to achieve a more toned and contoured appearance.

A tummy tuck, for example, specifically targets the abdominal area, removing excess skin and fat, and tightening the underlying muscles. A circumferential body lift, on the other hand, addresses excess skin and fat around the entire torso, including the abdomen, waist, and back.

These body lifting procedures provide more comprehensive results by directly addressing the skin laxity caused by massive weight loss. By removing excess skin and tightening the remaining skin, they can significantly improve the contour and appearance of the body, which cannot be achieved through 360 lipo + Renuvion alone.

In conclusion, while 360 lipo + Renuvion is an effective procedure for mild to moderate skin laxity and fat reduction, it has limitations in addressing significant skin laxity in patients who have recently undergone massive weight loss. Tummy tucks, circumferential body lifts, or other body lifting procedures are better suited for these patients as they directly remove excess skin and tighten the remaining skin for more dramatic and long-lasting results.

Noninvasive Subcutaneous Contracture Devices

Noninvasive subcutaneous contracture devices are innovative devices that aim to address the issue of contractures without the need for invasive surgical procedures. Contractures are a common problem that can occur due to various conditions, such as stroke, spinal cord injury, or neuromuscular diseases. These devices offer a non-surgical and convenient approach to managing contractures, allowing individuals to regain mobility and prevent further complications. In this article, we will explore the benefits of noninvasive subcutaneous contracture devices and how they work to alleviate the symptoms of contractures.

Are There Any Side Effects Associated With The J Plasma Procedure?

The J Plasma procedure is an advanced skin resurfacing treatment that has gained popularity due to its ability to effectively rejuvenate and tighten the skin. While the procedure is generally safe, it is important to be aware of the potential side effects that may arise.

One common side effect associated with the J Plasma procedure is temporary bruising. As the treatment involves the use of heat energy to stimulate collagen production, some individuals may experience mild bruising in the treatment area. This bruising typically subsides within a week or two and can be easily concealed with makeup.

Another possible side effect is swelling. The use of heat energy during the procedure can cause mild swelling in the treated area. This swelling is temporary and typically fades within a few days.

Numbness may also occur after the J Plasma procedure. This is due to the effect of the heat energy on the nerves in the skin. However, the numbness is usually temporary and should resolve within a few days.

In some cases, temporary skin discoloration and redness may occur following the J Plasma procedure. This is a normal reaction to the treatment, and the skin will gradually return to its normal color over time.

It is important to note that these side effects are considered normal and should subside after the initial procedures. However, if any concerns or unusual symptoms arise, it is recommended to consult with a healthcare professional. Overall, the J Plasma procedure is a safe and effective option for skin rejuvenation with minimal risks.

Conclusion: Limitatoins of Renuvion

In summary, the limitations of Renuvion include its inability to eliminate horizontal skin redundancy. Additionally, Renuvion thermal administration can have local side effects. Side effects include subcutaneous contraction, termed hyperinflammatory fibrosis, and local discolorations. If you are interested in undergoing lipo 360 with Renuvion, we encourage you to meet with a SurgiSculpt specialist.
