Renuvion: The Newest Technology For Skin Tightening

LA Plastic Surgery in Sarasota and Bradenton offers the latest technology for eliminating unwanted fat and sagging in the skin. Renuvion passes ‘helium plasma’ energy under the skin, the treatment areas can be tightened and elevated effectively without the large incisions, downtime and potential complications of a traditional plastic surgery procedure.


Renuvion uses a gentle waveform to convert helium, an inert gas, into a cold atmospheric plasma. Helium is used because it can be converted to a plasma with very little energy. The result is energy that’s unique in its ability to provide tissue heating and cooling almost simultaneously.


J-Plasma energy has been shown to be safe and effective in numerous surgical procedures where precise delivery of energy coupled with minimal thermal spread to adjacent tissue is beneficial. In cosmetic procedures, this allows for controlled coagulation of tissue.


Offering a long-awaited alternative to more invasive procedures, Renuvion provides dramatic results with lower risk and recovery time than more invasive surgery.

The Best Candidates for Renuvion in Sarasota

This procedure has been used on all age groups from men and women in their late 30’s to those up into their 80’s. Candidates with minimal sagging of the face including; cheeks, jowls and neck will see the most satisfying improvement. This procedure is ideal for those patients who don’t want to undergo a more extensive procedure and downtime it may entail. Dr. Lacerna will discuss your options to see what is the best procedure for you to achieve the results you want.

How Renuvion Works

Dr. Lacerna uses a local anesthesia and then creates tiny incisions under the chin and earlobe. In the same incisions, a special device delivers helium plasma energy to the undersurface of the facial and neck skin tightening and sculpting it over the previously placed sutures. The helium plasma energy not only tightens the skin immediately but also stimulates the production of collagen in the skin that continues to improve the skin tightening over the upcoming months. The benefit to this procedure is that it takes less than an hour. The final results are similar to a traditional facelift without large incisions and downtime.

I believe that a sense of well-being stems from feeling good, looking good, and having meaning and accomplishment in your life.
