Renuvion, Powered by J-Plasma, in Chicago – Skin Tightening and Body Contouring
Renuvion, also known as J-Plasma liposuction, is a revolutionary skin tightening treatment that can be combined with liposuction and other traditional body contouring procedures or can be performed on is own. Unlike other superficial radio-frequency skin tightening treatments, Renuvion J-Plasma condenses helium gas energy into a plasma beam that contracts the fibers that make up the collagen and elastin in the below the surface of the skin. This stimulates tightening and retraction of previously loose skin. The treatment is intended to correct loose-hanging skin and restore a youthful look.
How is Renuvion, powered by J-Plasma, done?
The Renuvion treatment typically follows a liposuction procedure. A long, thin probe is introduced under the skin through the tiny incision already made for the liposuction cannula. Once the provider initiates the energy source, a flowing beam of J-plasma helium gas travels down the probe and is concentrated on the inner fibers of the skin, including collagen and elastin. The radio-frequency current flowing through helium gas beam creates a plasma that is attracted to the collagen and elastin of the skin and the underlying deep subcutaneous tissue.
