What Is the J-Plasma® Treatment Process?
The Renuvion™ J-Plasma® skin tightening treatment is performed using IV sedation or general anesthesia for a comfortable patient experience.
Small incisions are created near the treatment area, through which the Renuvion™ J-Plasma® device is inserted. It then delivers radiofrequency energy and helium gas to create cold helium plasma. This stimulates the production of collagen to tighten the skin.
A liposuction cannula may be inserted through the same incisions for patients who want to remove localized fat.
Recovery and Results After J-Plasma® Skin Tightening
Is Downtime Needed After J-Plasma®?
Most patients require little to no downtime following their skin tightening procedure.
The minor incisions need to be kept clean and usually heal quickly without leaving any scars.
Is J-Plasma® Recovery Painful?
Patients can expect mild and temporary bruising, swelling, and tenderness in the treated areas following their Renuvion™ J-Plasma® procedure.
Dr. Agullo will recommend an appropriate over-the-counter medication to alleviate any discomfort during recovery.
When Will I See My Results?
Patients can see a noticeable improvement right after their Renuvion™ skin tightening treatment. Residual swelling may obscure the final results for two to three weeks.
The appearance of the treatment area will continue to improve over time as the body replenishes its supply of collagen. You will continue to see improvement and tightening of the skin for six to nine months after your procedure.
How Long Do J-Plasma® Results Last?
Initial data suggests that Renuvion™ J-Plasma® skin tightening results last about two and a half years. These numbers are still early, and results may last longer than that as more data is collected.
