We are happy to offer Renuvion / JPlasma as a paired procedure for surgical patients. It is the latest technology designed to provide enhanced results beyond the limitations of liposuction alone. We recommend this procedure to give our patients the best opportunity for the tissue to contract after the fat is removed using liposuction. Doctors use Renuvion technology after liposuction to contract the tissue. The most exciting part is that many Renuvion users say that the results compared to traditional liposuction using only a compression garment after the procedure, are noticeably better.
Renuvion combines helium plasma with a unique radiofrequency energy to provide contraction of the patient’s underlying tissue. The device is used underneath the skin. This is how I can further enhance the liposuction procedure. With other products, it is required to heat a large area in order to achieve tissue contraction. This is not consistent because of the risk of overheating the tissue. With the Renuvion device, maximum contraction of the tissue takes less than a tenth of a second! With Renuvion, there are both immediate and long-term effects. The effect of the treatment may continue to improve over time and doctors often report that the contraction effect is noticeable immediately after the procedure.
Risk associated with the use of Renuvion may include: unintended burns (deep or superficial), pneumothorax, scars, temporary or permanent nerve injury, pain, discomfort, gas buildup
resulting in temporary and transient crepitus or pain, infection, hematoma, seroma; asymmetry
and/or unacceptable cosmetic result. There may be additional risks associated with the use of
other devices along with Renuvion and there may be an increased risk for patients who have
undergone prior surgical or aesthetic procedures in the treatment area. As with any procedure,
individual results may vary.
You will start to see results within a few days as swelling subsides, but you will not see full results for six to nine months as it takes this long for collagen to be stimulated.
