J-Plasma Renuvion for Body
Shrink and sculpt loose and lax skin without large incisions, downtime or complications associated with surgery.* The revolutionary J-Plasma Renuvion is a minimally invasive procedure that uses sub-dermal cold plasma energy to instantly tighten and lift skin on the face, neck and body.* This technique offers a unique alternative for patients who aren’t ready or who are not willing to consider surgery, but can also be combined with surgeries like liposuction or tummy tucks to further enhance results.*
During a body treatment, a small hidden incision is strategically placed near the treated area and a probe is inserted under the skin. Cold plasma is then delivered to the area.
What is Cold Plasma Energy?
Cold plasma is created when helium gas is energized by radiofrequency (RF) and delivered through the J-Plasma Renuvion device. Because helium gas is very stable, it can be ionized at very low energy levels ensuring flexible, precise and safe delivery. Cold plasma is cooler than laser energy, making it a much safer treatment.
Areas that can be treated:
- Upper and lower abdomen
- Upper and lower back
- Bra area
- Under Buttocks (banana roll)
- Inner and outer thighs
Who are the ideal candidates for treatment?
The J-Plasma body procedure can be performed on all age groups. The best candidates are those with mild-moderate skin laxity from age, weight loss or pregnancy. The procedure can also be combined with more invasive surgeries such as liposuction or tummy tucks for those men and women with more advanced needs.
Is this treatment performed in the operating room?
Not necessarily. While some patients choose to undergo treatment in the operating room, treatment on most areas of the body can be done in our minor procedure room under local anesthetic or with Pro-Nox (laughing gas). When patients opt for treatment in our office they are able to drive themselves to and from treatment.
How long does the treatment take?
It depends on the size of the area, but most treatments can be performed in under an hour. Dr. Boudreault recommends that patients wear a compression garment for the first 72 hours after treatment.
When should I expect results?
Patients should expect immediate skin tightening with the J-Plasma Renuvion system that will continue to improve with time.*
*Individual results may vary; not a guarantee.
What is the downtime associated with the treatment?
When used on the body, healing occurs from the inside out. Patients should expect mild swelling and bruising which can take one to two weeks to resolve. Most patients can resume normal activities as early as one day after the treatment.
