Renuvion™ cosmetic technology’s cool plasma energy can give your skin a tighter appearance
Technological advances in cool plasma energy have created a way for cosmetic surgeons to lessen the appearance of loose or excess skin without excising the extra tissue and creating long scars. This minimally invasive procedure is performed in the office under tumescent “awake” anesthesia. Alan Greenberg MD was the first cosmetic surgeon in North Texas to use this remarkable system to give skin a more firm and tighten appearance.
After witnessing demonstrations of the Renuvion device, talking with cosmetic surgeons around the country and testing the equipment, our Frisco cosmetic surgeon believes that Renuvion is ideal for numerous patients who have skin laxity that liposuction alone cannot correct. It is also suited to those who want to avoid the cost and recovery time associated with skin excisions.
Firm and tighten skin around the body
The Renuvion system is an affordable option for clients who come to our Frisco cosmetic surgeon for neck lifts, tummy tucks, brachioplasties, mini-breast lifts, thigh lifts and other procedures that involve the following body parts.
- Back (including the bra line)
- Thighs (inner and outer)
Healthy patients who wish to give their skin a more tighten appearance following pregnancy or weight loss, or those who want to combat the effects of aging, are ideal candidates. Diabetics, traditionally having a high risk of wound complications, and individuals who have a lot of loose skin due to massive weight loss, are better served by different procedures.
The Renuvion cosmetic technology, formerly known as J-Plasma®, is new to the cosmetic industry, but it has been used extensively for other types of medical procedures. It doesn’t tighten skin with a laser, ultrasound or radiofrequency (RF) device, although it does use RF to create cool plasma energy by heating helium gas and turning it into “plasma.”
Our Frisco cosmetic surgeon places the Renuvion device under the skin through tiny six-millimeter incisions, after tumescent “awake” anesthesia is administered. The equipment heats a very small amount of helium gas while a greater amount of helium cools the tissue immediately to limit thermal damage. The connective fibro-septal network of tissue between the skin and the underlying muscles instantly and continues to contract more over the following 6-10 months. The contraction of this underlying tissue causes the skin to tighten along with it. When used appropriately there is less risk and damage than with traditional laser treatments.s.
Recovery is very similar to liposuction. Patients return to work two to four days after the procedure and must limit strenuous physical activity for about two weeks. A compression garment worn for several months afterward provides the best results with the least amount of complications.
