Renuvion® Skin Tightening
The skin on the face and body goes through changes over time that can lead to skin laxity, wrinkle formation, and other unwanted effects. It’s now possible to tighten and tone this skin with great results using minimally invasive techniques and advanced helium plasma energy technology. Dr. Richard Zeff, our board-certified plastic surgeon, offers Renuvion alone and in combination with other treatments to lift, firm, and tighten excess and loose skin virtually anywhere on the body.
What Is Renuvion®?
Renuvion, also called J-Plasma, is an advanced cosmetic treatment that uses plasma energy to heat targeted soft tissue, causing firming, tightening, and remodeling of the skin. As a result, patients can see smoother, younger-looking skin in the treated area. Renuvion uses a proprietary helium plasma technology from Apyx™ Medical to achieve its goals more effectively than ever before.
What Are the Pros and Cons of Renuvion®?
Renuvion can be used on virtually any area and provides a minimally invasive way to address skin laxity. J-Plasma and Renuvion are often referred to as the “facelift alternative,” as they can contour, lift, and rejuvenate the face (and other regions) using minimally invasive surgery.
Renuvion is not appropriate for everyone, and Dr. Zeff takes your safety seriously. During your initial consultation, we will help you determine if this or another technique offers the optimal outcome based on your needs and goals. When there is significant laxity of the face, neck, abdomen, or arms, Renuvion does not replace traditional surgical removal of redundant tissue. There are conditions where Dr. Zeff may recommend face/neck lift, abdominoplasty (tummy tuck surgery), or arm lift. But Renuvion can often offer improvement with a much less invasive approach.
Where Can Renuvion® Be Used?
The most commonly treated areas for Renuvion include:
If you wish to know if Renuvion is suitable for another area, our medical team can review your concerns during your initial consultation.
What Should I Expect During the Renuvion® Procedure?
Your comfort is very important to us, and one of the many benefits of Renuvion treatment is the cold energy created by the helium plasma. As an added comfort measure, we will utilize local anesthetic, so you can enjoy a nearly painless experience from start to finish. To achieve tightening of collagen, the Renuvion device is placed under the skin to tighten and tone the underlying tissues directly. This approach is sometimes also used in conjunction with a facelift or neck lift for more comprehensive results. Both methods can achieve nearly instantaneous tightening, but the tightening effects of Renuvion will continue for many months.
How Much Does Renuvion® Cost?
The price of Renuvion will depend on the size of the treatment area. At our practice, the cost starts at approximately $3,000 for lower face and neck. The price includes liposuction of any area when indicated. Larger areas will be more expensive. We will review the price of your treatment plan in full prior to beginning, and we work with several reputable plastic surgery financing lenders if that payment option suits you. We want you to feel comfortable, confident, and excited about your procedure, so please do not hesitate to ask any questions during your consultation.
