Skin Tightening with Renuvion Houston
What is Renuvion?
Renuvion is a minimally invasive procedure for skin tightening. The technology was formally known J Plasma or J Plasty. It tightens and refreshes loose skin without the need for invasive surgery, extended downtime, or large surgical scars. This is one of the most exciting advancements in energy technology in the past 20 years. The Renuvion system combines the unique properties of cold helium plasma with the efficiency of radiofrequency energy. This synergy enables a high degree of precision, but with minimal thermal effect to surrounding tissue.
How does it work
For the Renuvion procedure, Dr. Rodman creates 2-3 small entry points, placing the device just under the skin. Once the device is in place, a gentle waveform converts helium, an inert gas, into a cold atmospheric plasma. Helium is used because it can be converted to a plasma with very little energy. This energy generates enough heat to contract the skin, while at the same time excess helium gas cools the treatment area nearly instantaneously. This combination of energy tightens the skin dramatically without overheating the surface or risking burns. Renuvion energy has been shown to be safe and effective in numerous surgical procedures for controlled skin tightening with minimal thermal spread.
Renuvion is a single treatment. You will start seeing results soon after the procedure, but the skin continues to tighten over the next 6-12 months as new collagen and elastin is being produced.
Who is a candidate?
This procedure is great for men and women with mild to moderate sagging of the cheeks, jowls, and neck.
