What is Renuvion Skin Tightening?
Renuvion is the newest minimally-invasive treatment for loose skin. Formerly known as J-Plasma, this device uses helium and a gentle stream of radiofrequency energy to create “cold plasma”, which causes significant contraction of the collagen-rich connective tissue beneath the skin. Most patients require only one treatment; results are seen within a few weeks, and may continue to improve for up to one year.
What Areas Can Be Treated?
Renuvion can be used with or without liposuction, to tighten skin almost anywhere on the body. Unlike other minimally-invasive devices which focus energy on the skin itself, Renuvion treats the layers under the skin, and the result is a three-dimensional “shrinkwrap” effect which can be achieved by itself or added to liposuction to enhance the result.
What If I Don’t Have Much Fat, But Only Loose Skin?
This is one of the most exciting aspects of this new treatment. Because it selectively affects the skin and connective tissue, Renuvion can provide superior skin tightening regardless of the amount of liposuction performed. The TMA team has extensive experience with all relevant treatment options and will go over this with you during the consultation.
Can this be done under local anesthesia?
In some cases, yes. We will work with you to plan a holistic approach to your transformation, and while some procedures may be better carried out with the patient asleep, they will use awake anesthesia whenever feasible.
Is There Downtime?
Because the treated areas are prepared the same way that they would be for liposuction, downtime after a Renuvion treatment is usually about the same as for lipo alone. If Renuvion is added to a liposuction procedure, there should not be any additional discomfort or downtime.
How Long Do The Results Last?
Renuvion is a newer treatment, but results from hundreds of thousands of patients have shown that it lasts at least five years. And because of how the device works, we expect that the results could last even longer.
Am I a Candidate for Renuvion Skin Tightening?
Your TMA provider will spend time with you to understand your goals and expectations. Some patients may benefit more from an invasive procedure such as facelift, brachioplasty, tummy-tuck or thigh-lift. But Renuvion is an excellent option for someone with moderate skin-laxity, who wants to avoid the additional recovery and any signs that they’ve had surgery.
