What Skin Concerns Will J Plasma Address?

The powerful Renuvion system with J Plasma can address many common skin concerns including:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Sagging skin
  • Discoloration
  • Sunspots, age spots, and freckles
  • Rough or uneven skin
  • Sagging or drooping eyelids

We often recommend this treatment as a non-surgical alternative to facelift surgery. It is also used to enhance and complement the results of other treatments.

Can I Combine My Renuvion Treatments with Surgical Procedures?

Renuvion is often recommended as an alternative to facelift surgery, but it can also be used as a complement to the procedure. Both Renuvion and a surgical facelift create age-reversing results, but when you pair the two together, the results are even more dramatic. 

Imagine enjoying all the benefits from facelift surgery plus the benefits of Renuvion. If you want an age-defying transformation, the Renuvion + facelift surgery combination can’t be beaten.

Can You Treat My Entire Face?

This treatment is precise, allowing us to target specific facial areas and concerns. We typically treat the entire face, including areas of delicate skin like the lips and around the eyes.

What Happens During Treatment?

Treatment with the Renuvion/ J Plasma system is performed in our office, in one of our comfortable treatment rooms. We use a local anesthetic to minimize discomfort during the procedure. Many patients report no pain or discomfort. 

During the treatment the specialized device will pass over the skin, ablating the outermost layer of skin. Some patients will receive one pass with the device, others that desire a more dramatic result will receive two passes. 

After treatment, the skin is cleansed, and we’ll provide aftercare instructions so you can care for your skin properly at home. 

Start to finish, the treatment takes about an hour. We tell patients to plan on spending two hours with us. This gives time for the local anesthetic to take effect and for any needed sedation or post-treatment care.

What’s Recovery Like After Treatment with Renuvion/ J Plasma?

Your Renuvion recovery will be minor; you can expect to experience some redness and skin peeling for a couple of weeks.  J plasma requires two weeks off of work with redness up to 2 months post-operation.  

If you experience discomfort, you can use over-the-counter pain medications like Tylenol for the first couple of days. Most of our patients describe the recovery period as quite comfortable and well worth it.

Am I a Good Candidate for Treatment?
