Should I Get Renuvion™ Skin Resurfacing?
Renuvion™ skin resurfacing, powered by J-Plasma®, can benefit any person who is looking to correct fine lines, wrinkles, pigmented lesions, age spots, acne scars, or melasma. This treatment can provide some skin tightening and may be an alternative to a facelift for qualifying patients.
How Does Renuvion™ Skin Resurfacing Work?
J-Plasma® uses cold helium gas plasma to resurface and rejuvenate the skin on the face and neck. This plasma is created when helium gas passes through an energized electrode.
The combination of the plasma with the RF energy allows Renuvion™ to have greater control, allowing for more precision and less trauma to the surrounding tissues.
Renuvion™ can be used for full facial rejuvenation or localized spot treatments around the eyes, mouth, or neck. The treatment area will be numbed with lidocaine before small incisions are made in the skin. These incisions are so small that they typically result in minimal to no scarring. The Renuvion™ probe is inserted through these incisions so that the cold helium plasma can be delivered subdermally to tighten the skin and create a more youthful appearance.
Is There a Recovery Period?
Renuvion™ skin resurfacing, powered by J-Plasma®, is virtually pain-free, and any discomfort can be soothed with cold compresses or over-the-counter pain medication like TYLENOL®. Patients can expect two to three weeks of mild to moderate redness, bruising, swelling, and itching. Most patients take 10 days to rest and recover before returning to their usual level of activity.
What Results Can I Expect?
Facial skin will be tightened, and the texture improved. Results will begin to show immediately; however, most patients find that their final results take several months to develop fully. Most men and women see improvement that lasts up to 10 years on the face and five to seven years on the neck. Patients can extend the quality of their results by maintaining a healthy lifestyle (including not smoking) and protecting their facial skin from harsh environmental elements.
