Renuvion/J-Plasma - Subdermal Skin Tightening
Introducing Renuvion/J-Plasma, the latest technology available to address skin laxity without surgery.
The Renuvion/J-Plasma device utilizes the power of plasma energy to effectively tighten skin and underlying tissues without the need for invasive surgeries like 'tummy-tucks' or face or neck lifts. When used in combination with our VaserLipo device under the skin surface, the plasma energy causes contraction of the fibrous bands or 'fibro-septal network' found within the fatty tissue and lower connective tissues resulting in up to 30-40% contraction of these layers.
As the scaffold under the skin contracts following the plasma heating, the overlying skin accommodates along with it! The results are long-lasting with improvement seen for over 2 years from a single procedure. Never before have we been able to 'shrink-wrap' the skin and underlying tissues as effectively as we now can with this remarkable device.
Treatments are performed in-office under mild sedation with minimal downtime. Post-treatment protocol includes several topical radiofrequency sessions for best results.

More about Renuvion/J-Plasma
J-Plasma, or Renuvion, is a revolutionary cosmetic procedure that is being used to rejuvenate and tighten skin in the face, neck and body.
Renuvion is a technology based in plasma energy, which is why it is also referred to as J Plasma. Some describe plasma as the 4th state of matter, since it is technically not considered one of the other three (solid, liquid or gas).
When sufficient energy is added to a gas, an ionized gas is created. This ionized state of gas is known as plasma. J Plasma is just a highly advanced form of this that has been specifically engineered for use in cosmetic treatments of the face, neck and body. Renuvion is the new name for J Plasma and combines cold helium gas with radiofrequency (RF) energy. Why helium? Because helium can be ionized at a relatively low energy level. The helium plasma that is created can be used to cut, coagulate and ablate tissue with very good precision and control.
One of the best uses for J Plasma technology is for what we call subdermal skin tightening – which refers to the process of tightening skin from the undersurface. When the J Plasma wand is used from the inside – underneath the skin – the overlying tissues contract, or tighten, right in front of your doctor’s eyes.
Subdermal skin tightening is done in manner where the final result looks as if the skin has been lifted up. In fact, in some patients who have loose skin in the neck region, J Plasma treatment can almost appear as if the patient underwent a face and neck lift procedure. Even in patients who have elected to undergo a surgical face and neck lift, Renuvion technology can be used at the same time to turn back the clock even more!
