Renuvion (J Plasma)
Renuvion® (also known as “J Plasma”) is an FDA-approved medical device that has been used in surgery for many years. Helium plasma is delivered through the end of a cannula-like device—similar to a liposuction cannula—to create heat energy that tightens the fibroseptal network under the skin’s surface. This energy quickly heats and then cools the tissue, encouraging immediate contraction of the fibroseptal network and stimulating a process of neocollagenesis (new collagen production). In many patients, immediate results (tightening of loose skin) are seen on the operating table and will continue for up to one year thereafter (i.e., the length of time for new collagen to form). Renuvion / J Plasma is a safe and highly effective technology that is a great addition to our minimally-invasive body contouring practice.
