Losing weight and getting older can cause unfortunate side effects, including loose, sagging skin in one or more body areas. Traditionally, plastic surgery procedures such as the tummy tuck, arm lift, back lift or thigh lift remove the excess skin tissue. Renuvion skin tightening with J Plasma technology offers a non-surgical approach to sagging skin.
Renuvion can tighten loose skin for a refreshed appearance without the downtime or scars associated with traditional options. Dr. Melinda Lacerna is a national instructor for Renuvion treatments who teaches her peers how to use J Plasma technology for maximum benefits.
How Renuvion Skin Tightening Works
Our double board-certified plastic surgeon expertly controls the device to target your troublesome areas with a controlled heat that stimulates the body’s natural healing and skin tightening. A small point of entry is created for the device to go under the skin, releasing radiofrequency waves and a plasma stream. That combination of energy heats the skin precisely, controlling the temperature with helium gas that simultaneously cools the outer tissues. Renuvion stimulates the skin’s deeper layers to tighten, promoting skin remodeling for a better body contour.
Treatments with J Plasma technology typically take 30 minutes but could last longer if multiple body areas are treated with Renuvion. After your session, you may experience some tightness in the treated tissues and mild to moderate discomfort. Renuvion results take up to two weeks as your body’s healing response works to tighten the loose skin.
Renuvion provides noticeable results after one treatment session with continued improvement in the weeks and months after your appointment.
What Face and Body Areas Can Renuvion Treat?
Renuvion is a versatile device that can address loose skin in small areas around the face and more prominent spots in the body. J Plasma technology can tighten the skin in these areas:
- Lower face
- Upper arms
- “Love Handles”
- Breast tissue
- Outer or inner thighs
- Vagina (vaginal rejuvenation)
This non-surgical method for skin tightening may be a good fit for you if you have sagging tissues but don’t want to undergo invasive plastic surgery. Minimally invasive Renuvion treatments involve just one tiny incision, little to no scarring and require no recovery period.
Mild to moderate loose skin tissue may benefit from these treatments. However, severely sagging skin may require surgical intervention to achieve a tighter body shape.
