Renuvion, sometimes called J-Plasma, J-Plasty, or J-Plazty, is a skin tightening and resurfacing treatment device. It’s primarily used to tighten and smooth skin on the stomach, but it can also be used on the neck, back, thighs, breasts, arms, and legs for various conditions or issues. It can also be used on the face, including to spot treat around the eyes, mouth, and jawline.
Renuvion works by delivering helium-derived plasma and radiofrequency energy either on the surface of the skin or underneath it (“subdermally”) through a small tube called a cannula.
• When using it on the surface of the skin, it resurfaces and boosts cell turnover, much like a laser. This can help improve skin irregularities, discoloration, sun damage, and fine lines. The device is passed over the surface of the targeted area, which tightens and contracts the skin from the outside in, and ablates (removes) the skin, jump-starting the body’s natural healing response. You’ll see younger-looking skin over the next few months as your body continues to create collagen.
• Subdermally, the combination of high-energy heat and the plasma’s cold temperature causes collagen to contract and your skin to tighten. The device is inserted via small incisions, usually placed in areas that aren’t too visible and injects the plasma beneath the skin, to instantly firm the area from the inside out. Much like using it superficially, your results will continue to improve as you heal.
