What Is Renuvion J-Plasma?
Renuvion J Plasma is a new cosmetic technology that delivers precisely-controlled heat to specific structures in the dermis of your skin. Once heated to a specific degree, the overlying tissues contract or tighten right in front of your doctor’s eyes.
These results are noticeable after treatment and may also improve as time goes on.
If you desire a smoother, more youthful looking skin, You can think of J Plasma Renuvion as an alternative to laser skin resurfacing – where the goal is to minimize those unwanted wrinkles and creases while creating an overall more rejuvenated appearance.
However, compared with some of the fractional laser technologies that we use today, J Plasma can provide You with an even more dramatic improvement as far as skin appearance is concerned – reducing coarse and fine wrinkles while smoothing out the skin.
Problems that are commonly improved with J Plasma include:
- Wrinkles and lines
- Acne scarring
- Pigmented facial skin
How It Works
The dermis is composed of a network of collagen and elastic fibers which provide structure, support and elasticity to your skin.
As you age, the network of collagen and elastin fibers breaks down and gradually diminishes resulting in fine lines, wrinkles and loose sagging skin.
The normal aging process of your skin can be accelerated by factors from your environment; repeated, long-term sun exposure and cigarette smoking.
Renuvion J Plasma Unique Heating
Renuvion J Plasma was designed to deliver heat to this network of collagenous tissues in a way that was never before possible, resulting in rapid tissue contraction.
Maximum tissue contraction occurs in less than a tenth of a second.
This procedure utilizes the unique properties of helium plasma and RF energy to rapidly heat the tissue to 85°C for just long enough for collagen to achieve maximum contraction. At this temperature, contraction occurs in 0.044 second.
Tissue heating and cooling back to baseline occurs in less than 0.75 second.
Safety By Design
The unique Renuvion energy (helium plasma and proprietary RF) allows:
- Precisely-controlled delivery of heat to tissue, with minimal thermal spread.
- Rapid heating with near-instantaneous cooling (see figure 1) allows for shorter duration of activation, and therefore less diffusion of heat to the skin
One of the most exciting advancements in energy technology in the past 20 years, the Renuvion system combines the unique properties of cold helium plasma with the efficiency of RF energy.
This synergy enables a high degree of precision, and always with minimal thermal effect to surrounding tissue.
Renuvion has FDA clearance for the cutting, coagulation and ablation of soft tissue during open and laparoscopic surgical procedures.
Risk associated with the use of Renuvion J-Plasma may include:
- unintended burns (deep or superficial)
- temporary or permanent nerve injury
- gas buildup resulting in temporary and transient crepitus or pain
- asymmetry and/or unacceptable cosmetic result.
There may be additional risks associated with the use of other devices along with Renuvion J-Plasma and there may be an increased risk for patients who have undergone prior surgical or aesthetic procedures in the treatment area.
As with any procedure, individual results may vary. As with all energy devices there are inherent risks associated with its use.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q1 : What are the benefits?
If you are looking to transform your skin for a tighter, brighter more youthful look without surgery then this procedure could be the solution for you. While there are a number of noninvasive procedures for skin rejuvenation, Renuvion J-Plasma stands out as the new and improved way to enhance your skin in all areas of the body not just the face. It can instantly tighten loose skin on your stomach area, underneath your chin, on your neck, or back of your arms or legs.
Q2 : What areas can be treated with Renuvion?
Some of the most common areas to have Renuvion performed are the abdomen, waist, arms, thighs, face, and neck. Renuvion can be used underneath the skin on it’s own and is an excellent option for patients who feel they could use skin tightening on areas where there may be skin laxity.
The treatment is often coupled with liposuction to not only decrease the amount of fat in an area, but also to minimize potential skin laxity.
Q3 : Does the procedure hurt?
Most patients will undergo the procedure under a general anesthetic, meaning you will be completely asleep. In some cases the procedure can be performed under a local anesthetic where the area being treated will be numbed.
Q4 : What is the recovery like?
Renuvion J-Plasma treatment recovery varies by patient but typically depends on the area and size of area being treated. Typical recovery time is a week with full recovery 2-3 weeks even though skin may still be red but make-up can be applied if the treatment area is on the face. Peeling or crusty skin with itchiness, redness, and mild swelling may be some of the side effects but the instant result is tighter skin that is noticeably smoother and has a youthful glow.
There are several options available today for cosmetic treatments but Renuvion J-Plasma is the new answer to skin rejuvenation. It can erase the signs of aging that can occur over time with your skin. It gives patients dramatic results with immediate signs of new life without surgery and minimal downtime to recover so you can get back to your life.
Q5 : Is it safe?
Yes, Renuvion has been proven to be a safe and effective treatment for skin tightening.
Q6 : How soon will I see results?
The results are usually instant and may also improve as time goes on.
Q7 : Are the results permanent?
Although the results are dramatic and long-lasting, as with any cosmetic surgical procedure the results are not entirely permanent as the effects of aging over time will still occur. Despite this, procedures such as J-Plasma will absolutely help to prolong and postpone the aging process.
