What is Renuvion J plasma?
Renuvion® J plasma, by Bovie Medical, is a non-surgical skin tightening modality also known as J plasma or J-plasty. Without the use of invasive surgery, Renuvion tightens mild to moderate loose skin, rejuvenating the skin to a more youthful, elastic feel and look.
With no extensive downtime and no scars, Renuvion can be personalized to each body part and each individual’s skin type and elasticity. This technique allows surgeons to precisely target the respective areas for treatment and control the heat of the laser.
How does Renuvion J plasma work?
Renuvion J plasma uses helium gas with radiofrequency (RF) energy to tighten the loosened skin. Inserted through a small port on the selected treatment area, it 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 can be focused precisely and is done so without damaging surrounding tissues. The plasma heat allows the tissues under the skin to contract, thus tightening the skin.
For patients with excessive skin redundancy, Renuvion skin tightening can be paired with VASER high definition liposuction. It is also performed without any cutting, using the same port (4 mm size) as the Renuvion J plasma probe. This pairing allows patients that have severe skin looseness to achieve tighter, more contoured, high definition results.
What areas does Renuvion treat?
The exciting news is it can precisely manage the skin elasticity on almost all body parts and is commonly used to tighten the following body parts: arms, neck, thighs, abdomen, back, flanks, and knees.
What are the benefits of Renuvion J plasma?
This technology has a multitude of benefits. It offers near immediate results as contracted skin tissues and tightened skin can be seen intraoperatively. It also offers minimal risk as compared to more invasive or surgical techniques.
With that, Renuvion offers minimal downtime compared to surgical techniques. There is also less risk to the surrounding skin tissues of the treatment area. Another benefit of J plasma heat is the lack of scars as the entry port, 4 mm wide, for the probe is very thin.
