Top 4 Things To Know About Renuvion Skin Tightening

If you’ve been curious about facial renewal, this is your sign to take the plunge. Forget costly surgeries and lengthy recovery periods: With Renuvion® skin tightening, you can take your look to the next level with less risk and more reward. Here’s everything you need to know about the innovative and effective FDA-approved procedure.

Renuvion Is Also Known as J-Plasma

Like your after results, J-Plasma went through a lift and rebranded to Renuvion®. The procedure itself is still the same, however. No matter what you call it, Renuvion® has the ability to tighten and refresh the skin’s look without invasive surgery, scarring, or lengthy downtime.

The procedure uses controlled heat and energy to sculpt underneath the skin for a firm, lifted appearance.

Renuvion Is Unique

Unlike other tightening treatments, Renuvion® combines radiofrequency (RF) heat and cooling helium plasma energy to stimulate tissue. During the treatment, a small hidden incision is strategically placed near the treated area, and a probe is inserted subdermally (under the skin), where the cold plasma is delivered via a thin tube.

The combination of the RF heat and cool plasma energy causes the collagen to contract and tighten for a rejuvenated, tighter appearance.

Renuvion Is Versatile 

Because of its precision, the treatment can be used in a multitude of locations on the body, creating a firmer look without a surgical lift in the following areas:

  • Face
  • Arms
  • Abdomen
  • Breasts
  • Glutes & thighs
  • Neck

Strong enough to stand alone but gentle enough to work in tandem, Renuvion® is a great procedure to pair with liposuction for amplified body contouring results. 

Renuvion Works Quickly

Unlike traditional tightening treatments such as microneedling or certain chemical peels, Renuvion® works right away in only one treatment — meaning you’ll walk out looking rejuvenated without the need for multiple sessions.

Additionally, Renuvion® creates both immediate skin tightening and also boosts new collagen production over several months for long-term results that build over time.

What to Expect From Renuvian

During your procedure, we’ll sedate you with general anesthesia to perform the procedure. Depending on the treatment area, it can take up to an hour to perform. Following the procedure, expect 7-10 days for healing with mild swelling and bruising occurring. (Although it may seem like a long time to wait, more invasive surgeries can take weeks to recover from.) Still, the results will be worth it: Renuvion® results can last for years, thanks to the stimulation of new collagen.
