Skin Tightening With Renuvion Powered By J Plasma

Renuvion also known as J Plasma is a revolutionary minimally invasive procedure that uses subdermal cold plasma energy to instantly tighten and rejuvenate most anywhere on the neck and body. Dr. Crabtree is the first and only surgeon in Hawaii to use this new technique to shrink and sculpt loose and lax skin without large incisions, downtime or the need for general anesthesia.

Using only tiny incisions similar to that used by a liposuction cannula, Dr. Crabtree can precisely and artistically sculpt and contour areas of the neck and body using cold plasma technology. Further sculpting can result when combining VaserÒ Liposuction with the procedure.

Renuvion / J Plasma is ideal for those patients from their 20’s to their 70’s looking to improve skin laxity from age, pregnancy or weight loss. This procedure is also for patients who have tried other non-surgical fat reduction treatments but did not get the results they had anticipated. This procedure will give immediate results without a lot of downtime. Renuvion/J Plasma procedure does not replace traditional body contouring surgery for those patients that have more advanced needs.

Your J Plasma skin tightening by Renuvion procedure starts with the initial consultation with Dr. Crabtree and his staff. At this appointment, Dr. Crabtree will discuss your desired results and develop a plan to achieve those. He will address your concerns and explain in detail the procedure, the anesthesia and the recovery. At this appointment or in an appointment closer to your procedure date, you will be measured for your post-surgical garment, given prescriptions, sign consent forms, take photographs and are provided detailed pre and post surgical instructions.

The procedure is performed under local anesthesia in our Kailua office operating room. Tiny incisions are made in easily hidden areas of the body in the areas you wish to be treated. The instrument is passed under the skin through the tiny incisions allowing Dr. Crabtree to precisely contour the areas with the cold plasma, which instantly tightens, shrinks and rejuvenates the skin from the inside. Results are immediate and will continue to improve as your body heals. Your procedure may also include VaserÒ liposuction as well. In this case, Dr Crabtree will first numb up the area(s) with a local anesthesia solution and then use ultrasonic assisted (VASER) liposuction as a first step to removing excess fat and contouring the area(s). The Renuvion/J Plasma technology is then used to additionally tighten the loose skin and accelerate and improve your final result.

You will be wrapped with bandages and put in your post-surgical garment. Rest is recommended for the remainder of the first day. You should be able to resume most normal activities the next day. The garment should be worn for the first 5 days. You should expect some tightness in the area treated initially. You may also experience some mild swelling and bruising over the first week or two. Your discomfort should be minor and should be managed with over the counter pain relief.
