Experience tighter skin after a stand-alone treatment of Renuvion, without the use of invasive plastic surgery.

As we age, our skin gradually loses collagen and elastin, two proteins that are essential for maintaining the skin’s elasticity and firmness. This leads to a reduction in skin thickness and firmness, resulting in sagging, wrinkles, and fine lines. Certain medical conditions and medications can also affect skin tightness, as well as lifestyle choices such as sun exposure, smoking, and weight gain/loss. 

Loose skin affects both men and women and can occur anywhere on the face, neck, and body manifesting as:

  • Sagging upper arms and/or around the knees
  • Wrinkles on the inner thighs
  • Excess skin on the abdomen, both above and below the navel
  • Bra rolls
  • Extra skin in the armpit area

There are a number of effective non-surgical procedures for tightening the skin. The Boston Center for Plastic Surgery is pleased to offer patients Renuvion J-Plasma, a cutting-edge technology used for skin tightening.

What is Renuvion J-Plasma? 

Renuvion is completely different from other minimally invasive skin tightening procedures because it uses cold plasma combined with radiofrequency (RF) to create cold plasma energy. Originally developed to treat skin cancer lesions where precision is paramount, this technology allows plastic surgeons to deliver significant skin tightening without the risk of damaging the surrounding tissues.

Cold plasma is a unique form of energy that is cool to the touch. The Renuvion wand delivers a precise combination of cold plasma and RF energy to the target tissue beneath the skin’s surface. These two energies create a synergistic effect that results in more significant and long-lasting skin tightening than either technology alone without overheating the skin.

Benefits of Renuvion

The biggest benefit of Renuvion is the amazing results that can be achieved without surgery. In the right patient, the Renuvion cosmetic technology can deliver surgical-like results with no:

  • Incisions
  • Significant downtime
  • Anesthesia
  • Visible scars

Renuvion is an excellent stand-alone procedure and can be used in combination with liposuction for body contouring. Before deciding on Renuvion, all Boston Center for Plastic Surgery patients will consult with Dr. Miller, a board-certified plastic surgeon, to determine whether it is appropriate for your skin concerns. Dr. Miller performs all Renuvion treatments at our medical office and prioritizes patient safety.

Renuvion for Arms, Thighs & Abdomen

Renuvion’s ability to tighten the skin in hard-to-treat areas without surgery is what makes it so appealing. As young as the mid-thirties, the upper arm area can be very problematic, especially for women. Up until Renuvion, there has not been an effective treatment alternative to surgery, which leaves a large, visible scar. 

The thighs and abdomen are two of the other big problem areas where Renuvion is proving to be very effective. Renuvion can rejuvenate the skin in the inner thigh area, resulting in a smoother and more toned appearance. It can also make the abdominal area look more lifted, tight, and youthful without leaving a scar.

After Renuvion, patients enjoy wearing their clothes and even feel better in their jeans because the legs are lifted, smooth, and tight.

Ideal Candidate for Renuvion

The key to an exemplary result with Renuvion is the same as with all aesthetic procedures: proper patient selection. The ideal candidate is any man or woman:

  • In good overall health
  • With mild to moderate skin laxity

If you have undergone massive weight loss or had multiple pregnancies, you are probably going to be better served with a surgical procedure such as a tummy tuck or an arm lift. A significant amount of excess skin really needs to be excised in order to deliver a smooth, lifted contour. However, for patients with a mild to moderate degree of sagging, Renuvion may be an excellent solution.

Renuvion J-Plasma is a fantastic way to turn-back-the-clock by addressing some of the earliest signs of aging, lifting and tightening the skin while also evening out skin tone and improving the appearance of broken capillaries. In these busy times, what could be better than this kind of one-stop rejuvenation?
