What is Renuvion?

As we explore the world of advanced aesthetic procedures, Renuvion emerges as an outstanding solution for skin rejuvenation, tightening, and firming. This minimally invasive procedure combines cutting-edge technology to address sagging, loose skin effectively.

Renuvion (also known as J-Plasma) holds the distinction of being the sole FDA-cleared device for post-liposuction use, as well as the exclusive device approved for subcutaneous soft tissue contraction. A cannula, or thin wand, will be inserted beneath the skin, as the combination of high-energy heat and cold plasma (courtesy of the helium gas) stimulates collagen production. As the collagen contracts, the skin tightens, resulting in visible improvements. This treatment is specifically designed for patients with Fitzpatrick skin types I–III, targeting moderate to severe wrinkles and lines (rhytides).
