Renuvion is a revolutionary new skin tightening treatment that has quickly become one of the must-have cosmetic procedures.
If you want firmer skin for a younger complexion or if you want to tighten your arms, back, buttocks, thighs or stomach, then the Renuvion skin tightening may be right for you.

Renuvion is an FDA approved minimally invasive cosmetic technology that uses proprietary helium gas and RF waves to tighten sagging skin on the face and body. The procedure can be used on its own to provide anti-aging benefits or in conjunction with forms of lipo to help tone after surgical weight loss.

Also known as “Renuvion J-Plasma”, “J-Plasma” or “J Plasty”, the procedure is ideal for many patients because it uses small incisions to reach specific areas of the body. This means reduced downtime for recovery, no major surgical scars, and results are immediate after just one session.

What can Renuvion treat?
Unlike other cosmetic procedures that can only be done on the face or certain parts of the body, this skin tightening treatment can be done anywhere. Some common uses and popular areas of the body for this treatment include:

  1. Arm Stretches – Many celebrities have their arms up tight before red carpet events and award shows so they look their best in front of cameras. If you want to make your arms look better with sleeveless tops and avoid the “turkey wing” that can show your age, then squeezing your arms may be right for you.
  2. Tummy Tuck and Belt Lift – Everyone has a tiny tummy that their exercise and diet routine just can’t seem to get rid of. Do not worry! Instead of punishing yourself or doing strenuous exercise on your rest day, consider a non-surgical cosmetic procedure to melt away the last bit of stubborn belly fat.
  3. Breast lift: Either from breastfeeding or gravity, it is natural for breasts to change shape and lose their firmness over time. Renuvion can help firm your breasts to increase your confidence and make you feel good about your body.
  4. Thigh Firming – Squats can only do so much to tone and contour your body. If you’ve experienced significant weight loss, you may have a little extra loose skin that interferes with your cosmetic goals. This is where skin tightening comes in. No matter how much you exercise, sagging skin is extremely difficult to get rid of with exercise alone. You may need a non-invasive procedure to firm areas of the body, such as the thighs, that have loose skin remaining.
  5. Face and neck lift: As we age, it is natural for the skin to loosen and sag. The phenomenon of sagging skin is what causes the puppet lines under a person’s mouth. If you have puppet lines, there are many treatments that can smooth out the lines in unsightly ways. However, loose skin on the face and neck in general has a negative effect on people’s appearance and confidence. By firming your lower face and neck, you can take years off your appearance and appear more vigorous and energetic.


“There are two different uses for the Renuvion J-Plasma device: skin rejuvenation and subdermal skin tightening. The device works by delivering a cool, precise stream of helium gas along with radio frequency (RF) waves to the target area.”

The benefits of helium skin tightening

The “J Plasm” procedure has many benefits that have made it quite popular.

  1. It is safe. Most minimally invasive, non-surgical cosmetic treatments are quite safe with minimal health risk and minimal side effects. The skin tightening is the same. Because the device allows cosmetic practitioners to target specific areas of the body through very small incisions in the skin, there is little risk of adverse effects during and after the procedure.
  2. It is approved by the FDA. Having an FDA-approved procedure gives patients more peace of mind that the treatment is safe and effective.
  3. Long-term effects in a single treatment. Many patients have busy lives and need to look their best at all times. Plasma skin tightening has become quite popular due to its ability to permanently transform your face or body in a single treatment session.
  4. It is non-invasive and painless. Everyone has seen those articles showing that celebrity plastic surgery went wrong. Fortunately, non-invasive procedures carry much less risk of ill effects than full cosmetic surgery. Do not worry! After your procedure, you will see yourself as a better version of yourself and you will not end up in one of those articles.
  5. The procedure uses only small incisions. Many people are afraid of being cut or “going under the knife.” This form of skin tightening does not require cutting. When the Dr. performs the procedure carefully, he will make small incisions and precisely target specific areas with the J Plasma device.

Helium Radio Frequency Skin Tightening Frequently Asked Questions

  • What can I expect for recovery after the procedure? When can I go back to attend special events?

Recovery varies depending on the extent of skin tightening treatment. For most patients, you can expect 7-10 days of initial healing. However, it can take up to 4 weeks for it to heal completely. Recovery time is slightly longer than with other procedures; This is because your body is healing from the inside out. You can expect some swelling and bruising that will gradually disappear over time. It may be recommended that you wear a compression garment on the treated area for 4 to 6 weeks after the procedure to reduce swelling and promote faster healing.

To allow effective healing, you must wait at least 2 weeks before engaging in any vigorous activity or exercise. If there is a special event where you want to look your best, it is a safe bet to schedule your procedure at least 6 weeks before the event. This way you are sure to heal and be ready to go!

  • When will I see the results?

You will see some results immediately after the treatment and you will see some swelling and darkening that goes away in a few days after the treatment. Once you heal in the weeks after the procedure, you will notice increased skin elasticity, firmer, and improved texture. Optimal results are seen six months after the procedure.

  • Are the results really permanent?

The short answer is yes. Unlike other treatments in which your body metabolizes injectables over time, Renuvion firms the skin and increases collagen production, providing long-term results. However, the longevity of the results depends on your lifestyle and how well you take care of your skin. Factors like extreme weight fluctuations, gravity, and sun exposure can cause your skin to loosen up again over time.

  • Who is a good candidate for skin tightening treatment?

Renuvion works well for men and women who have sagging skin. However, it is only effective for people with a certain amount of sagging skin. If you have excessive amounts of sagging skin, Renuvion may not be effective for you, and a cosmetic doctor will likely recommend a different procedure.
