J-Plasma Renuvion for Face
Dramatically reduce the appearance of fine lines and deep wrinkles, reverse years of sun damage and tighten the skin with J-Plasma Renuvion. This device uses very precise cold energy on or below the skin to take years off your face and neck. The J-Plasma Renuvion uses cold plasma energy to promote skin tightening, cellular rejuvenation and encourages your skin to regrow new cells in a very controlled manner. The J-Plasma Renuvion can achieve in a single session what numerous aggressive lasers or microneedling can.
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 ensuring flexible, precise and safe delivery. Cold plasma is cooler than laser energy, making it a much safer treatment than many lasers.
How does it work?
During the treatment, the area is numbed with topical and injectable numbing medicine. Dr. Boudreault then uses the J-Plasma wand to gently “paint” the face with cold energy in a gliding motion. Patients should expect an immediate contraction of the tissue that continues to improve over time. Since the device is so gentle, it can be used on delicate areas of the face such as the eyelids without causing damage.
Conditions that can be treated:
- Fine lines
- Deep wrinkles
- Sagging eyelids
- Tired-looking eyes
- Tightening around the mouth
- Tightening the jowls
- Reversing YEARS of sun damage
What is the recovery like?
The recovery time can be lengthy following J-Plasma Renuvion on the skin, but the results are dramatic. Patients will leave the office swollen with a slightly “charred” appearance. In the week to follow, the darkened skin will begin to flake off, leaving healthy and pink skin behind. Patients should expect swelling for 1-3 weeks, a slightly tender, sunburned sensation as well as redness for around six weeks. Our office will provide each patient with a strict post-procedure skincare protocol to maximize comfort and results. Redness can easily be covered with makeup or Colorescience All Calm.
Is this treatment performed in the operating room?
Not necessarily. While some patients choose to undergo treatment in the operating room, treatment can also be performed 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.
