What is Renuvion™/J-Plasma®?
Renuvion™/J-Plasma® is a minimally invasive and scarless rejuvenation procedure for the face, neck, arms, legs, back, and abdominal area. By utilizing advanced cold plasma energy, the Renuvion™/J-Plasma® device stimulates skin coagulation to improve the appearance of loose, lax, and crepey skin. This procedure is performed without necessitating large incisions, resulting in minimal downtime and a quick recovery. It can also be paired with liposuction for optimal fat elimination and body contouring results.
Dr. Mendieta tailors each Renuvion™/J-Plasma® procedure to the unique goals of his patients. A customized treatment plan will be developed after a thorough analysis of the target area. Ideal candidates for Renuvion™/J-Plasma® treatment struggle with skin laxity and excess fat in the following areas of the body:
Dr. Mendieta performs all of his Renuvion™/J-Plasma® procedures at his state-of-the-art surgical facility. After local anesthesia is administered, small incisions are created near the treatment area, through which the Renuvion™/J-Plasma® probe is inserted. Renuvion™/J-Plasma® uses radiofrequency (RF) technology paired with cold helium plasma to tighten the skin and trigger natural cell regeneration.
Most Renuvion™/J-Plasma® patients can resume their daily routine within a couple of days of their treatment. Some discomfort, swelling, and bruising may occur, but pain can be managed with oral medication. Dr. Mendieta may recommend wearing a compression garment to help control swelling and promote healing.
While work and light activity can be continued within a few days of Renuvion™/J-Plasma® treatment, patients are advised to wait two to three weeks before engaging in strenuous exercises.
Swelling and bruising may conceal the final results of a Renuvion™/J-Plasma® procedure for as long as three weeks, but there should be a noticeable improvement right after the treatment. Patients can enjoy continuous enhancement as their body produces new collagen over time.
How much does a Renuvion™/J-Plasma® procedure cost?
The cost of Renuvion™/J-Plasma® varies from patient-to-patient. The factors that influence the cost include the number of areas being treated, facility fees, anesthesia fees, and geographical location. The exact price of your Renuvion™/J-Plasma® treatment will be provided to you during your private consultation. But there are some excellent financing options available for cosmetic procedures.
What are the risks associated with Renuvion™/J-Plasma®?
Patients who opt for Renuvion™/J-Plasma® treatment rarely experience complications. However, all cosmetic procedures come with risks, which may include:
- Bleeding or hematoma
- Asymmetrical results
- Changes in sensation
Will I have scarring after my Renuvion™/J-Plasma® treatment?
The incisions created during Renuvion™/J-Plasma® treatment are very small and unlikely to develop into noticeable scars. If any scarring does occur, it is likely to fade over time and with the recommended aftercare.
