One of the normal processes of aging is that the older you get, the less and less collagen is produced by the body as the decades pass, making skin lose elasticity and begin to sag. While adopting a skincare regimen for your aging skin can slow some of the signs of aging, the only alternative solution for tightening and removing extra skin has been through invasive surgical procedures like a facelift. While excisional surgeries produce effective results, not everyone feels comfortable getting invasive surgery, nor is everyone a candidate for one.
Renuvion skin tightening treatment is a minimally-invasive procedure used to tighten skin on the face, neck, abdomen, arms, thighs, or any other place on the body where the effects of gravity and time have aged, sagged, or loosened the skin. With the Renuvion skin tightening procedure, Dr. Ortiz will help you achieve that youthful, firm, rejuvenated skin you have not seen in years.
Women and men looking for a way to improve the tightness of their skin without undergoing an invasive procedure can turn to Dr. Ortiz for a solution. Renuvion technology uses helium plasma and radio frequency (RF) energy to heat the tissue beneath the skin, stimulating and contracting the tissue to tighten and firm the skin of the treated area.
During the procedure, Dr. Ortiz uses a thin wand (similar to a cannula used for liposuction) and inserts it into tiny entry points of the targeted area. Using the contouring wand, our board-certified surgeon applies the heating and cooling energy beneath thin layers of skin, contracting the tissue and stimulating the growth of collagen in the area. The Renuvion procedure will take approximately 1 hour, and you will begin to see the results of tighter, firmer, more youthful skin within days. The full results of your Renuvion treatment will continue to improve over the next few weeks with continued improvements as the skin heals and bruising and swelling subside. Within 6-9 months after your procedure, the final results are visible– showing the desirable, smooth, taut skin that skincare alone cannot deliver.
The ideal candidate for Renuvion skin tightening are individuals who have mild to moderate areas of sagging that they want to improve. For people with more severe sagging and excessive skin, it can be used in combination with surgical excision procedures such as a facelift, neck lift, arm lift, thigh lift, body contouring after massive weight loss, or other procedures. Dr. Ortiz is excited to offer Renuvion, formerly known as J-Plasma, technology to his clients looking for rejuvenated, tightened skin without the need for an invasive surgical procedure.
