Most people assume surgery is the only way to treat skin laxity and sagging skin. However, Renuvion is a state-of-the-art device that tightens loose skin without large incisions, scars, or surgeries. Dr. Chaowen Wu is a huge proponent of minimally invasive alternatives to traditional surgeries. As such, if you have mild-to-moderate skin laxity in targeted areas, she may recommend Renuvion (J-Plasma) skin tightening.
You’re a suitable candidate for Renuvion skin tightening if you…
- Are in generally good physical and mental health.
- Don’t have underlying medical conditions that prevent optimal wound healing or recovery.
- Don’t smoke or are willing to stop smoking before and after the procedure.
- Have realistic expectations from the Renuvion (J-Plasma) skin tightening procedure.
- Want to tighten your skin without scars or extended downtime.
- Want to tighten your skin after liposuction or another surgery.
Dr. Chaowen Wu will carefully examine the quality of your skin in the targeted areas, discuss your goals, and review your medical history to ensure you’re a suitable candidate for Renuvion (J-Plasma) skin tightening. She might recommend Renuvion as a stand-alone procedure or in combination with other procedures, such as liposuction or lifts.
What happens during the Renuvion skin tightening procedure?
Renuvion (J-Plasma) skin tightening is a minimally invasive procedure that can be performed under local anesthesia and sedation or general anesthesia. Dr. Wu will make extremely small incisions (less than a quarter inch) at the targeted area to insert the Renuvion device. When activated, the Renuvion device will deliver radiofrequency waves and plasma energy into your skin. The plasma stream’s temperature will be neutralized by the helium, ensuring optimal comfort. This will lead to skin contracture, thereby making your skin look firm and youthful.
What is the recovery like after Renuvion skin tightening?
Renuvion (J-Plasma) skin tightening only involves small incisions, so the post-treatment recovery process is easy and comfortable. You’ll notice the results of the treatment immediately, with continued improvements over several weeks. Most patients can resume their daily activities in a day or two. Dr. Wu will also provide a list of post-treatment guidelines to ensure optimal healing and recovery.
