Renuvion with J Plasma Skin Tightening

Facelifts, tummy tucks, and body sculpting have been the most common approach to address sagging or loose skin for many years. In numerous circumstances, these procedures were the only choices available. Dr. Javaheri’s practice is honored to the be first in San Francisco to perform Renuvion J Plasma skin tightening.  Dr. Javaheri’s goal is to bring the latest technology to his patients to reach their most desired aesthetic goals.

Not only can Renuvion J Plasma achieve skin resurfacing, it can also achieve skin tightening, so 2 separate procedures. Renuvion J Plasma skin tightening can be used on any part of the face or body where there is an excess of skin. Dr Javaheri often combines this with VASERlipo if patient has visible skin laxity when performing liposuction of abdomen, arms, back, thighs, etc. Skin tightening involves shrinking and sculpting lax skin through a minimally invasive procedure and with small incisions immediately after VASERlipo.

Many patients would like to turn back the clock in regards to their skin laxity and wrinkles, but would rather not have such invasive procedures. Renuvion with J Plasma Technology is the latest procedure to revolutionize our aesthetic industry.

Renuvion J Plasma Skin Tightening uses a junction of radiofrequency energy and helium gas in order to create plasma. In return, the plasma tightens the skin for a tighter skin and beautiful result. Depending on skin condition and age, Renuvion J Plasma can be used in conjunction with other facial or body procedures for an even better result!

Am I a Candidate for Renuvion J Plasma Skin Tightening?

As time progress, our skin becomes less elastic with age. Gravity also plays a role in skin sagging. This is also more evident in middle aged patients who have lost a large amount of weight in a short amount of time.

Some people may have areas on their face or body which they are unhappy with, and have become more bothersome as they age. If you are looking to reach your aesthetic goals, we can provide a comprehensive consultation with you to further discuss goals and options for a customized plan to yield you best results.  Dr. Javaheri and staff is here to help guide you through every step of the process.

Renuvion J Plasma Skin Tightening candidates include men and women with loose or sagging skin in the face or body due to weight loss, pregnancy, or age. If you would like to know if you’re a candidate for Renuvion J Plasma Skin Tightening, please give our office a call for a consultation.

About the Treatment

Renuvion J Plasma Skin Tightening is delivered through the J Plasma device as helium gas is energized by radiofrequency energy.  Gas and energy combine to modify molecules which tighten the skin. Renuvion is an advanced energy device that combines cold helium plasma with RF energy for greater control of tissue effect, enabling a high level of precision with virtually eliminates unintended tissue trauma. It has been shown to be safe and effective in numerous surgical procedures. This technology is used under the skin in order to produce a tighter, sculpted result and the outcome is incredible!

The Procedure

In most cases this procedure is combined with VASERLipo and would be performed under general anesthesia.  But, for smaller areas such as the neck, the doctor will use local anesthetic or general anesthetia to numb the area of treatment. During the procedure patients should not feel any pain, but may experience some mild discomfort. The procedure duration depends on each individual patient’s treatment area but can typically last between one to three hours.

After The Procedure

The total recovery time for Renuvion skin tightening is about one to two weeks. Some patients may experience some tightness in the treated area initially, and this should subside as the healing process progresses. Pain can be treated with over the counter pain relief medication or by prescription. Patients typically wear a compression garment for the initial 72 hours if on the face and 4-6 weeks for the body. Patients may experience mild swelling and bruising for the first two weeks. Most patients return to their normal daily activities within a few days after the procedure.

To see if Renuvion with J Plasma Skin Tightening is the procedure for you, please contact double board certified Dr. Javaheri for a consultation. We would love to see you in our San Francisco office, and if you are not located in the area we can also arrange a facetime consultation.

My upcoming surgery is a face lift procedure. All these procedures are following weight loss surgery procedure called Gastric Bypass whereby I lost nearly 300 lbs. Dr. Javaheri performed all of my plastic & reconstructive surgeries to a great success. I am very pleased by the results. He even came to the office on a Sunday to deal with a small complication I had following one of my surgeries. It is so unusual to find a surgeon who cares so much about his patients; and an office staff that are so capable.”*
