Skin Resurfacing with Renuvion

Renuvion with J-Plasma skin resurfacing is the latest and hottest technology on the market to treat wrinkles, tighten skin and achieve a more youthful appearance. Renuvion uses a revolutionary technology to create a non-surgical facelift. While it’s used on the face to rejuvenate the skin and turn the clock back, it can also be used anywhere on the body to help tighten the skin.

This exciting new procedure can be used as an alternative to traditional facelifts, body sculpting, neck lifts, and tummy tucks. It’s also used to shrink and sculpt loose or aging skin without the need for surgery. Patients are taking advantage of this procedure to avoid going under the knife and look younger without the costs and downtime associated with surgery – every patient’s dream come true.

Southern California has beautiful weather year-round and because of all the sunshine, residents spend a lot of time outside at the beach, on the golf course, hiking, sailing, bike riding, and running. Because of all this sun exposure, residents are prone to premature wrinkles, sun spots and other skin discolorations. Thankfully, Renuvion with J-Plasma is a game changer that’s much like the much sought after “fountain of youth.”

Renuvion is a skin resurfacing procedure that can dramatically improve the appearance of:

  • Acne scars
  • Age spots
  • Wrinkles
  • Crow’s feet
  • Marionette lines
  • Acne scars
  • Age spots
  • Loose skin

Note: Renuvion is great for the face, but can also be used on the neck, arms, stomach, and legs to tighten lax skin.

Renuvion uses heat energy to resurface the skin and stimulate collagen tightening and as the skin heals, fresh, new skin is produced. Renuvion is similar to a laser, but the difference between this procedure and a laser is that the Renuvion treatment uses ionized helium gas which is converted to plasma. This causes the energy to be delivered safely and evenly on the surface of the skin, whereas a laser uses light-activated energy which targets the water content in the skin. Renuvion is more effective than fractional laser treatments and has an advantage over traditional laser because the skin tightening effects are stronger due to the radiofrequency energy that it emits.

Renuvion uses plasma technology, which is simply an electronically-charged gas. Because of the cool helium technology, the plasma skin rejuvenation device operates at much lower temperatures (as much as 75% cooler) than the lasers typically used for skin resurfacing. Since Renuvion uses significantly cooler temperatures than lasers, the risks of tissue damage and long-term side effects are reduced. There are a few weeks of downtime with this treatment, however. The skin needs to be cleaned and moisturized several times a day for about 10 days after the procedure to ensure a great result.
