Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is Renuvion?
A: Renuvion is a device that uses advanced J-Plasma technology. J-plasma combines helium with radiofrequency to create significant tightening of the tissues in a very precise and safe manner.
Q: What areas can be treated with Renuvion?
A: Some of the most common areas to have Renuvion performed are the abdomen, waist, arms, thighs, face, and neck. Renuvion can be used underneath the skin on it’s own and is an excellent option for patients who feel they could use skin tightening on areas where there may be skin laxity. The treatment is often coupled with liposuction to not only decrease the amount of fat in an area, but also to minimize potential skin laxity. Renuvion may also be used externally on the face for significant skin tightening, resurfacing, and improvements in discoloration and texture.
Q: Does the procedure hurt?
A: Most patients will undergo the procedure under a general anesthetic, meaning you will be completely asleep. In some cases the procedure can be performed under a local anesthetic where the area being treated will be numbed.
Q: What is the recovery like?
A: The recovery is easier than that of liposuction if the Renuvion treatment is being performed underneath the skin, with downtime typically ranging from a couple days to one week. If being performed externally on the face, the recovery is similar to that of an ablative laser treatment.
Q: Are the results permanent?
A: Although the results are dramatic and long-lasting, as with any cosmetic surgical procedure the results are not entirely permanent as the effects of aging over time will still occur. Despite this, procedures such as J-plasma will absolutely help to prolong and postpone the aging process.
Q: How long before results can be seen?
A: Depending on the area being treated, results can start to be seen in about 6 weeks. However, full healed results can take up to 1 year to be seen.
Q: Is it safe?
A: Yes, Renuvion has been proven to be a safe and effective treatment for skin tightening.
