Renuvion J-Plasma

Conveniently located to serve San Antonio, Eagle Pass and the surrounding area.

Renuvion, also known as J-Plasma, is a minimally invasive body contouring procedure that tightens loose skin. It improves skin quality and health while reducing the signs of aging. At Eterna Cosmetic Surgery, we offer Renuvion to San Antonio patients who want to achieve a more youthful look without undergoing a traditional cosmetic surgery procedure.

What Is Renuvion J-Plasma?

Over time, skin starts to sag due to a decrease in collagen and elastin production. Skin droops in areas like the arms, buttocks, face, and neck, creating an aged appearance. Renuvion is a minimally invasive alternative to surgical lift procedures for patients seeking effective, state-of-the-art skin tightening.

Commonly performed Renuvion treatments at Eterna Cosmetic Surgery include:

  • Body Contouring
  • Skin Tightening and Skin Lifting
  • No-Cut Tummy Tuck
  • Scarless Arm Lift
  • Smooth Thigh Lift
  • Mommy Makeover
  • Eterna Breast Lift
  • Suture Suspension Facelift
  • Scarless Facelift/Neck Lift
  • Double Chin Reduction
  • Male Breast Reduction

How Does Renuvion J-Plasma Body Contouring Work?

Renuvion treatments are performed using a handheld device. This device releases helium gas, which is combined with radiofrequency (RF) energy to create helium plasma energy. The controlled heating and cooling treatment contracts the skin and underlying tissues, thus creating optimal skin-tightening results without damaging the tissues in the treatment area.

Benefits of J-Plasma

Renuvion J-Plasma stands out as a revolutionary approach to skin tightening, offering numerous advantages that appeal to individuals seeking a more youthful and vibrant appearance. Benefits of opting for J-Plasma include:

  1. Natural-Looking Results: Renuvion J-Plasma stimulates collagen and elastin production to naturally firm and tighten skin over time.
  2. Youthful-Looking Skin: Renuvion J-Plasma enhances skin strength, providing firmer and more lifted facial and body contours.
  3. Wrinkle Reduction: J-Plasma can minimize visible lines and wrinkles, leaving the skin smoother.
  4. Quick Recovery: Renuvion J-Plasma is minimally invasive and requires minimal downtime. Most patients can return to their regular activities within just a few days.
  5. Short- and Long-Term Improvements: This treatment delivers rapid results, and as time passes, the skin firming effects continue, leading to further improvement.
  6. Versatility for Customizable Treatments: This treatment can target almost any problem area. Common treatment sites include the arms, breasts, abdomen, buttocks, and thighs. Renuvion J-Plasma is also precise enough to address hard-to-treat facial areas and to improve the appearance of the neck.
  7. Minimal Post-Treatment Marks: The small incisions required for this treatment allow for discreet post-treatment marks.

Your Consultation

Your consultation will start with a conversation about your cosmetic concerns and desired treatment outcome. In addition to evaluating your medical history, a physical exam will be performed to get an accurate assessment of your skin health and body contours.

If you are a suitable candidate for Renuvion J-Plasma, we will create a personalized treatment plan for achieving your goals.

Your Renuvion Treatment Session

A Renuvion treatment session can take between 30 minutes and one to two hours depending on the number of treatment areas. The procedure can be done alone or may be combined with a liposuction procedure. A tiny incision will be made to deliver the helium plasma during treatment.

Aftercare and Renuvion Results

You will be able to go home the same day as your treatment. We will provide aftercare instructions for you to follow to promote expedient healing and optimal results. You may need to wear a compression garment if the treatment area involves the lower face or neck. Minor swelling and tenderness may be experienced for a few weeks.

You can anticipate immediate results in the form of tighter and firmer skin. Optimal results can be expected within six to nine months.

The results of Renuvion J-Plasma can last up to two years. Improvements in some treatment areas, like the face and neck, may last up to five years. Maintenance treatments may be scheduled to maintain results.

The Cost of Renuvion J-Plasma

The price of a Renuvion J-Plasma procedure will depend on the size and number of treatment areas. The number of treatment sessions can also impact the overall cost of the procedure.
