Part of a healthy lifestyle is looking the best one can– when people feel confident, they enjoy better social experiences and an improved outlook. As social creatures, humans seek acceptance and a sense of belonging. An affirmative self-image reinforces self-worth and contributes to personal satisfaction.

Renuvion Treatments

Leading plastic surgeons are training and adapting Renuvion (J Plasma) to their practices. This improved procedure is a skin tightening technique to enhance the skin’s elasticity. “Skin laxity” is a term for loose skin that occurs with aging, pregnancy, and other life events. Collagen is a building block of skin elasticity that pulls skin close to bones and muscles.

People, unfortunately, produce less collagen starting in early adulthood. Elastin is the connective tissue structure that gives the skin a youthful and healthy appearance. As it is with collagen, elastin diminishes over time, as well.

A Renuvion (J Plasma) intervention may restore stretched skin for suitable candidates. The procedure starts when the doctor inserts a thin tube through tiny incisions to access the skin’s substructure. Then radiofrequency warms deep tissues, thus causing collagen production to increase and tighten the skin.

Treatment Benefits

Renuvion skin tightening treatment can improve many parts of the body, including:

  • Buttocks, lower back
  • Face and neck
  • Areas of the arms
  • Most of the abdomen
  • Thighs, upper leg

The procedure also uses tiny incisions (minimally invasive). The benefits include:

  • A short period of recovery compared to conventional surgery.
  • Results are long-lasting.
  • It tends to improve skin tone and texture.
  • The procedure may improve many areas of the body.

Renuvion (J Plasma) procedures typically have long-lasting outcomes; however, results vary between individuals.

Good Candidates

Candidates should generally be in good health and not experiencing significant health issues. Bleeding disorders are of particular concern, as in any procedure, and smokers tend to have slower recoveries.

Dr. Andrews urges patients to have realistic expectations and wants them to understand the limitations– the body’s weight must be close to normal, as weight fluctuations affect results. Skin laxity needs to be mild to moderate, and significant excess sagging skin is a contraindication. Also under consideration are age, patient motivation to maintain results and skin quality.

Renuvion Consultation

A consultation is the first step for patients to look and feel their best. There are non-invasive topical treatments and other surgical options that patients may be encouraged to consider depending on their goals. Dr. Andrew, a board-certified plastic surgeon, and professional staff will assess each patient’s fitness for a procedure.
