J-Plasma (Renuvion) is a revolutionary minimally invasive procedure that uses cold plasma energy on the underside of the skin to instantly tighten and rejuvenate anywhere on the face and body. A unique alternative to traditional facelifts, tummy tucks and body sculpting, the J-Plasma (Renuvion) procedure will shrink and sculpt loose and lax skin without large incisions, downtime or the complications of cosmetic surgery.
BENEFITS OF J-PLASMA FACE
- Immediate skin tightening
- Improved skin elasticity
- Eliminates crepey skin
WHAT IS J-PLASMA (RENUVION)?
J-Plasma Face uses cold plasma energy under the skin to lift, tighten and rejuvenate the face and neck giving you natural looking results with minimal downtime and no complications of a traditional facelift. J-Plasma is unique because the cold plasma energy applied under the skin creates instant skin contraction resulting in improved laxity, tightening and shrinkage.
WHO IS A CANDIDATE?
The J-Plasma Face Procedure can be used on men and women of all skin types and all age groups ranging from 30-somethings to 80-year-olds. J-Plasma Face is ideal for those with mild to moderate sagging in the lower face, jawline, jowls and neck. A traditional facelift is recommended for those with more advanced needs. Patients choose J-Plasma Face because they want good improvement but don’t want the downtime, expense and complications of a traditional surgery.
WHAT IS PLASMA ENERGY?
Cold plasma is created when helium gas is energized by radiofrequency energy and delivered through the J-Plasma device. Because Helium gas is very stable, it can be ionized at very low energy ensuring flexible, precise and safe delivery. Cold plasma is cooler than laser energy making J-Plasma Face a safer procedure with less risk and damage to the tissue and affording patients a quick recovery. The level of improvement and rejuvenation from cold plasma energy is unrivaled in current technologies. No laser, ultrasound or radiofrequency treatment is capable of tightening and firming skin to this level.
During your extensive consultation, Dr. Ruff or Dr. Ramineni will evaluate your facial and neck structure, your skin elasticity, and your underlying muscle tone. They will thoroughly explain each technique along with its risks, benefits, and recovery times. You will be asked to describe in detail how you want your face and neck to look after your procedure.
Performed in-office and using local anesthesia, Dr. Ruff or Dr. Ramineni starts the J-Plasma (Renuvion) Face Procedure with three tiny, hidden incisions under the chin and behind each ear. They will then use the J-Plasma device sub-dermally (under the skin) to deliver cold plasma, which instantly tightens, shrinks and rejuvenates skin from the inside out. Results are immediate and continue to improve as your body continues to heal.
POST TREATMENT INFORMATION
The J-Plasma Face Procedure takes about an hour and patients can expect initial tightness in the treated area. Pain is minimal and can be lessened with an over-the-counter pain reliever. Patients wear a facial compression garment for the first 72-hours. Mild swelling and bruising can take one to two weeks to resolve, however most patients are able to resume normal activities three to five days post procedure.
