Every year skin technology improves, both in skincare products and procedures meant to enhance the condition of aging or sagging skin. Renuvion® skin tightening is one option for non-surgical skin tightening that remains one of the most effective technologies available. If you’re considering skin tightening because of weight loss or the process of aging, then Renuvion might be for you. Here’s what to know about it.
What is Renuvion?
Renuvion, also known as J Plasma, uses radiofrequency waves to deliver helium plasma underneath the skin to tighten and improve the appearance of loose skin. Renuvion is a minimally invasive procedure that is sometimes performed in conjunction with liposuction. It can also be performed on its own as an alternative to surgical lift procedures.
How Does Renuvion Work?
Renuvion works by making several small incisions in the treatment area. A specialized handpiece is inserted under the skin where it releases radiofrequency energy underneath the skin which is converted to helium plasma. Once a steady stream is achieved, it produces heat that contracts the skin and tightens it. The heat promotes the production of collagen, which continues to help tighten the skin over the next few months.
Unlike other plastic surgery procedures that require lengthy surgery time, Renuvion is done in an hour or less.
What Areas Does Renuvion Skin Tightening Improve?
Renuvion can be used to treat several areas of the body including the skin of the breasts, buttocks, arms, and legs. However, it can also be an effective facial skin tightening treatment. Renuvion is a good choice for people who have experienced significant weight loss or body changes with pregnancy, both of which can result in loose skin.
Who is the Ideal Candidate for Renuvion?
Renuvion is a good choice for most people due to the minimally invasive nature of the procedure and short recovery time. If you’re in overall good health and have mild to moderate skin laxity, Renuvion might be a good choice for you. However, you should meet with a board-certified plastic surgeon to determine whether a lift procedure would better suit your goals.
