An innovative and non-invasive skin tightening treatment, Renuvion® has gained popularity for its ability to smooth skin while improving firmness and texture.
New Look New Life offers Renuvion® in New York City for clients who desire effective, long-lasting skin tightening results without surgery.
What Is Renuvion®?
Renuvion skin tightening, also known as J-Plasma or J-Plasty, is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure designed to tighten and rejuvenate the skin. Its unique combination of radiofrequency (RF) energy and helium plasma can achieve dramatic skin improvement for a refreshed, energetic look.
What Are the Benefits of Renuvion®?
- Skin tightening – Renuvion® effectively tightens loose or sagging skin and helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
- Versatility – Renuvion® treats more than one skin concern, including mild to moderate skin laxity, and can be used on the following five areas of the body:
- Face and neck
- Stomach and Waist
- Natural-looking and long-lasting results—Renuvion® is known for producing natural-looking skin-tightening results to deliver a more youthful appearance without any tell-tale signs caused by some surgical procedures. The results of Renuvion® skin tightening are typically long-lasting.
- Stimulates collagen production—Radiofrequency energy stimulates collagen growth, which is essential to maintaining skin elasticity and firmness, contributing to the long-term benefits of the treatment.
- Minimally invasive —Renuvion® is a minimally invasive procedure, which means it requires only tiny incisions. This leads to less scarring, reduced risk of infection, and shorter recovery times compared to traditional surgical methods.
- Shorter procedure time—Renuvion procedures are typically quicker than traditional surgical options, reducing the time spent in the operating room.
- Minimal downtime—Although there is some downtime associated with Renuvion, it is relatively short. Many patients can return to regular activities within a few days to a week after the procedure.
Am I a Candidate for Renuvion® Treatment?
Renuvion® patients should not smoke as this can negatively impact the healing process and overall outcome. They should be able to comply with our team’s important pre-procedure and post-procedure instructions.
Good candidates for Renuvion® treatments will also have:
- Mild to moderate skin sagging – Renuvion® is best suited for individuals with mild to moderate skin laxity and may not be the most appropriate for those with severe skin laxity.
- A clean bill of health – Candidates should be healthy, as certain medical conditions or medications may affect eligibility for the procedure.
- No active skin infections – Candidates should have healthy skin without active infections, severe skin conditions, or recent sunburn. Skin health can impact the effectiveness and safety of the procedure.
- Realistic expectations and maintenance compliance – Candidates should have realistic expectations about the outcomes of their Renuvion® treatments. While it can provide noticeable skin tightening, it may not achieve the same results as a surgical facelift. While Renuvion® offers long-lasting results, skin aging is an ongoing process, and maintenance treatments may be necessary to sustain the results over time.
Individual experiences with Renuvion® may vary, and the best way to find out if you are a good candidate for this procedure is to schedule a consultation with one of our professional and experienced providers.
What is Discussed During My Renuvion® Consultation?
During your consultation, one of our fully-trained and licensed New Look New Life providers will assess your specific needs, medical history, and skin condition to determine if Renuvion® is right for you.
They will also discuss the benefits, potential risks, and expected results based on your unique needs and goals.
How Are Renuvion® Treatments Performed?
After a local anesthetic is administered, radiofrequency energy is applied to the desired treatment area(s) with a small wand that is inserted beneath the skin. This controlled energy heats the deeper layers of skin to stimulate collagen production, an essential building block for healthy and youthful skin.
Helium gas is added to convert the RF energy into plasma. This high-energy plasma delivers precise heat energy to the underlying tissues, causing an immediate contraction of collagen fibers resulting in noticeable skin tightening.
Renuvion® typically takes one to two hours, depending on the extent of the procedure and the number of treatment areas.
