Genetics, aging, sun exposure, and environmental factors all break down the collagen and elastin in the skin, which contributes to undesirable skin laxity and the emotional insecurities that come along with it. However, these issues can be treated. Spring Ridge Plastic Surgery is pleased to offer the Renuvion® skin tightening system. Formally known as J-Plasma®, the Renuvion® system is a minimally invasive option for tightening loose and lax skin without the need for invasive surgery. By combining the properties of helium plasma with radiofrequency (RF) energy, Renuvion® gently and safely treats skin laxity on the stomach, neck, back, thighs, arms, and legs.
Who Can Benefit from Renuvion® Skin Tightening?
Anyone who is dissatisfied with the appearance of skin laxity on their abdomen, neck, back, thighs, arms, and/or legs can benefit from Renuvion®. Patients who would have once been recommended for tummy tuck surgery, neck lift surgery, arm lift surgery, and body contouring procedures are now able to turn to Renuvion® as an alternative treatment. As this is minimally invasive, there are no extensive incisions, scars, risks, or lengthy recovery periods. Although this procedure can be performed on most patients with skin laxity, ideal results come from patients who require mild to moderate skin tightening. This procedure can be performed as a standalone skin tightening procedure or be combined with liposuction for more dramatic results.

Skin Tightening Treatment
Your Renuvion® treatment combines both helium plasma and radiofrequency energy to heat the tissue. Helium plasma is created as helium gas, which is then energized into plasma by RF energy. This technology simultaneously heats and cools the skin for precise and safe treatment. After small incisions are made in the treatment area, the Renuvion® handpiece will evenly administer the plasma energy with little-to-no damage to the surrounding tissue. The heating of this tissue causes the skin to not only tighten, but it stimulates collagen production, as well, keeping your results lasting longer than with other procedures.
Treatment sessions with Renuvion™ are quick and comfortable. Because of the helium plasma energy, the skin is heated at a cooler temperature, which causes less damage than other skin-tightening procedures on the market. Results from your Renuvion® treatment begin to show immediately following the procedure, and they will continue to improve over the course of the next three to six months as collagen growth begins to improve. You may experience bruising and swelling for the first week after your treatment, but this is minor, and all discomfort can be remedied with over-the-counter pain medication. As this is not a surgical procedure, you will not experience any scarring or extended downtime. Instead, you will be ready to get up and show off your younger-looking, tighter skin before you know it.
