Have you considered a skin tightening procedure, but you want immediate results? Have you heard about Renuvion™? Renuvion™ provides immediate skin tightening and rejuvenating results. This procedure is offered at Salisbury Plastic Surgery. Dr. Deborah K. Ekstrom is the first plastic surgeon in central Massachusetts to offer this skin tightening treatment to men and women in Worcester and the surrounding communities.
What is Renuvion™?
Renuvion™ is a minimally invasive skin tightening procedure that lifts and rejuvenates the skin. It can be used anywhere on the body and provides immediate results. Renuvion™ uses helium plasma energy, also referred to as J-Plasma energy. This treatment tightens and elevates skin without any large incisions or downtime. It is a revolutionary alternative to traditional plastic surgery and other skin-tightening procedures.
What is Helium Plasma Energy?
Helium plasma energy is a non-reactive gas in its base state. When it is ionized and combined with radiofrequency energy, it becomes reactive and reaches a state of what scientists call plasma. This plasma is used under the surface of the skin to create a tightening sequence that is stronger than laser or ultrasound. Helium plasma also cools down a lot quicker than laser, so it is safer for the body.
What are the Benefits of Renuvion™?
Renuvion™ provides many benefits to patients who wish to tighten, resurface or rejuvenate their skin. These benefits include:
- Reduction in the appearance of wrinkles and age lines
- Correction of acne scarring
- Correction of uneven pigmentation
- Reduction in the appearance of melasma and other skin discoloration
How is Renuvion™ Performed?
Renuvion™ is performed in-office under local anesthesia. Small incisions are made in the desired treatment area and several sutures are used to elevate the skin. After the sutures are placed, J-Plasma is delivered to the treatment area. A special device is used to transfer the plasma and it immediately tightens the skin. The entire procedure takes less than an hour and provides similar results to other body lifting techniques.
What is the Downtime for Renuvion™?
Renuvion™ is a minimally invasive skin tightening procedure. Because it is minimally invasive, the downtime is relatively small. Swelling and bruising are typical after this procedure, but they will subside in 5-7 days. Many patients are also able to return to their daily tasks and activities within 2-3 days. Pain after the procedure is minimal and can be muted with over the counter medications.
What is the Cost of Renuvion™?
The cost of elective cosmetic procedures varies among patients. Each Renuvion™ procedure is custom-tailored to the patient’s unique needs. This factor can alter the cost of a Renuvion™ treatment. Most health insurances do not cover elective procedures, so to offset the cost we offer financing services to patients with approved credit.
Who is a Good Candidate for Renuvion™?
This procedure has been performed on both men and women. The best candidates for this procedure should have loose or sagging skin that needs to be tightened and rejuvenated. Those who have sagging cheeks or jawlines can use Renuvion™ on their face. This procedure is good for those who want the results of invasive plastic surgery, but don’t want the downtime that comes with it. A consultation with the doctor is the best way to determine if Renuvion™ is right for you.
