The subdermal tightening of Renuvion® J Plasma is created with the energy generated by the device. The tissue is carefully heated with RF energy and cooled with helium plasma through a slender hand-held wand to stimulate tissue contraction just below the skin’s surface.
When inserted under the skin the overlying tissue will contract and tighten and continue to do so over the next 6 months. While the skin is tightening it will appear as though it is lifted – making it an excellent treatment for the loose skin in the upper arm either as a stand-alone procedure or in combination with liposuction.
This makes Renuvion® J Plasma the best skin tightening treatment compared to other devices that offer skin tightening using a single modality like Thermi, Profound RF and Ultherapy.
How Does Renuvion Work?
The Renuvion handheld device consists of a long, thin metal cannula, or tube, that is inserted under the skin through small, strategically placed incisions (if performed alone) or inserted through existing incisions (if performed along with other procedures). RF waves energize a stream of helium, creating a precise and powerful surge of cool plasma that flows out of the tip of the device. As the device is moved back and forth across the treatment area, the cool plasma heats the underside of the skin, causing the skin to contract while simultaneously stimulating collagen production.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Healthy men and women who are frustrated with loose skin are good candidates for Renuvion. It is an excellent choice for patients who don’t want an invasive surgery or the accompanying scarring and downtime. DR. ROZBEH TORABI most often utilizes Renuvion in conjunction with other procedures, such as liposuction or a neck lift, but it can also be performed as a stand-alone procedure, to provide patients extraordinary skin-tightening results on the following areas of the body:
Inner and outer thighs
Flanks or sides
Legs, including knees and calves
What is the downtime associated with a Renuvion® procedure?
Like liposuction procedures, the recovery is relatively easy as compared to more invasive surgery. Most patients are sore for several days but able to move around easily. DR. ROZBEH TORABI recommends not lifting anything heavy or strenuous exercise for the first two weeks after the procedure but will guide each individual patient through their recovery with frequent postoperative visits and check-ins.
A compression garment is provided and placed on immediately after the procedure and should be worn as directed by Drs. Torabi depending on the area treated. Most patients can return to work after 3-5 days
