Losing weight is an accomplishment that’s definitely worth celebrating. Whether you recently lost weight because of a baby delivery or due to diet and exercise, you definitely deserve the opportunity to show your new body off. However, if you lost a lot of weight that left you with some excess skin in the process, you may feel a little bit embarrassed about showing off your new figure. Even though there are skin tightening procedures that are very successful, they aren’t for everyone. If you want to tighten your loose skin without having to go under the knife, then J-Plasma Renuvion may be the perfect solution for you.
What Is J Plasma?
The J Plasma Renuvion procedures use a combination of cold helium plasma and RF energy to help tighten the skin and increase collagen. Unlike other procedures that damage surrounding tissues, the RF energy used in this procedure uses controlled precision to eliminate unintended tissue trauma.
What Is Recovery Like?
Depending on the area that we are treating you may be able to go back to work and regular activities in just a few days. If, however, we are doing J Plasma facial resurfacing, recovery may last anywhere from 2-4 weeks. Depending on the area being treated, we may just send you home with some Motrin or Tylenol. For more extensive areas, however, we do prescribe narcotic pain medication that should only be needed for the first couple of days after surgery.
Am I a Good Candidate?
There is no definitive way for us to determine your candidacy for this procedure without you coming into our office for a consultation appointment. Typically, patients who have loose skin that needs some tightening are more suitable candidates for this procedure.
