Renuvion is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that offers magical skin rejuvenation, including tightening and firming. Though the non-surgical technique can be used on many parts of your body, such as the arms, legs, tummy, buttocks, and chest, it is popular for patients to choose this skin-tightening procedure for their face. Doing so can take years off your appearance, letting your vibrant, youthful energy shine through.
What is Renuvion & How Does it Work?
The Renuvion procedure seeks to correct the natural signs of aging. Over time, our skin begins to lose valuable nutrients and moisture. It can develop fine lines and wrinkles, and this can make a person look years beyond their chronological age. Sun damage, environmental factors, and genetics also play a part in how old we look. Renuvion pulls the skin taut and gives it a glow, similar to a facelift without the scars.
Referred to as J-Plasma technology, the technique works by way of a handheld device that emits a powerful and highly focused stream of energy. The stream consists of cold Helium plasma that is passed through radiofrequency energy causing controlled subdermal coagulation. The result is a precise beam that heats the tissues under the skin, which tightens and rejuvenates the skin, without harming the surrounding tissues. The result on your appearance is younger and more radiant skin.
There are two general categories of use for the face, subdermal (under the skin) and superficial skin resurfacing. The subdermal facial rejuvenation is great for the lower face and neck to tighten the laxity in the skin and provide skin tightening without the downtime and cost of a neck lift surgery.
The truly amazing aspect of Renuvion procedure is its extreme accuracy. The micro-injuries to each layer of skin is designed to stimulate rejuvenation without destroying tissue. While the effects of J-Plasma are powerful enough to eradicate multiple skin defects, actually ablating the skin at the cellular level, the pin-point precision of the beam keeps the surrounding tissues safe, completely eliminating the risk of unintended tissue trauma.
A Revolutionary Cosmetic Skin-Enhancing Procedure!
Renuvion (J-Plasma) is the first technology of its kind. Sure, we have lasers that can assist with rejuvenating the face without the need for a traditional facelift. Some experts have even likened Renuvion to laser skin resurfacing. The difference is Renuvion tends to provide a dramatic effect in cosmetic patients with wrinkled or rough-textured skin. Another major difference is that Renuvion uses cold helium passed through sound energy to accomplish astonishing effects as opposed to tissue ablating lasers.
As for what results to expect, it is not uncommon for Renuvion to help you look up to ten years younger, and for only a fraction of the cost (and risk!) of a traditional facelift.
How Do They Perform Renuvion Procedure?
Before you can enjoy the amazing benefits of Renuvion, you first must schedule a consultation with a qualified practitioner. Both cosmetic and plastic surgeons can offer the non-invasive technique, but since the procedure is rather new on the scene, only a few advertise the cosmetic technique at this time.
To find a surgeon that offers Renuvion, look for online reviews for qualified cosmetic surgeons and schedule a virtual and, eventually, sit-down consultation.
During your consultation, you will be assessed for surgery. Your medical history will be examined, current health will be assessed, and various tests performed to determine if you have the health and skin type to be a good candidate for surgery.
If you are deemed healthy and in need of Renuvion treatments, your procedure date will be set.
What if your doctor says Renuvion is not for you? If it is deemed that Renuvion is inappropriate for your needs, your doctor may recommend an alternate procedure, such as a facelift or facial fillers.
If you are cleared for surgery, the date of your procedure will be set.
On the day of the procedure, you will be given general anesthesia before the J-Plasma device is used to rejuvenate your facial skin.
The J-Plasma device looks like a wand and delivers the stream of energy at the tip, either to the skin’s surface or to your entire face. Your doctor can even choose to apply Renuvion to pre-selected areas, such as under the eyes or around the mouth.
The skin can be tightened and refreshed virtually anywhere around the face, including on the lower face and neck. We can also treat jowls using Renuvion technology.
What to Expect Following the Renuvion Procedure?
After undergoing Renuvion, you may notice redness, itchiness, and minor swelling at and around the treatment area. Expect any side effects you do encounter to subside in approximately ten days, though it can take two or more weeks to recover from the procedure. Everyone is different and no two people heal the same way. Talk to your cosmetic surgeon about what to expect following your Renuvion treatment.

Renuvion can erase these sun damaged effects to leave your skin fresh and glowing!
Renuvion Can Erase Fine Lines, Wrinkles & Saggy Skin
Our skin type, genetics, and the environment can all affect the way our skin ages. The effects start as fine lines around the eyes and mouth and soon progress to wrinkles on the face and neck. Your skin can even begin to sag around the cheeks and neck. Renuvion procedure can tighten your skin, bringing youth back to your appearance.
