Renuvion Before and After: FAQs

Renuvion Before And After FAQS

Many people are surprised at the outstanding results they see in Renuvion before and after photos. Despite being a non-invasive procedure, Renuvion (also called J-Plasma) can noticeably tighten the skin and dramatically improve skin contours.

If you have excess skin you’d like to get rid of or are considering liposuction for fat removal, Renuvion may be the solution for you. Not only can Renuvion tighten skin alongside liposuction, but it can shrink loose skin on its own as well — without resulting in large scars.

In this article, we’ll answer some frequently asked questions about the revolutionary skin tightening technology called Renuvion.

FAQ: Renuvion/J-Plasma Skin Tightening

What is Renuvion or J-Plasma?

Renuvion skin tightening/J Plasma is a combination of helium plasma energy and radio frequency (RF) energy. Use of these two energies heats and contracts the skin from the inside out.

There is no risk of tissue damage or burns — skin stays protected. Yet the increase in temperature will shrink the skin immediately, creating a tightening effect and reducing excess skin.

For examples of the outcomes this procedure can produce, we suggest looking over some Renuvion skin tightening before and after photo galleries.

Be sure to apply the necessary filters and read the descriptive text for each case. If you want to see how Renuvion can be used on the face and neck (submental region), look up Renuvion face before and after photos or Renuvion neck before and after photos.

If you want to see how Renuvion can be used on the stomach, look up Renuvion before and after stomach photos. (Note that if you click on these images, they often contain nudity.)

Who is a good candidate for Renuvion?

Renuvion Face Before And AfterIdeal patients for Renuvion are looking to tighten sagging skin. The procedure can be combined with liposuction (fat removal) or other procedures. But it can also be used on its own to improve modest amounts of loose skin.

Patients must be in good health without serious medical conditions. It’s wise to be at or near a healthy weight. Non-smokers are best.

If you have requested a consultation for Renuvion, you will learn more about your candidacy for the procedure (and more information about the surgery in general) at your consultation appointment.

Where on the body can Renuvion be performed?

The most common places on the body for Renuvion to be used include the abdomen, flanks, back, upper arms, neck, and thighs. But, really, anywhere where you have loose excess skin, Renuvion can typically be used.

Does Renuvion have to be used with liposuction all the time?

No, you can get Renuvion alone. This is commonly done when a patient only has a small to modest amount of loose skin they would like to tighten.

If you don’t have a lot of underlying fat (or any excess fat) in the area, liposuction (which is the most common procedure to use alongside Renuvion) simply may not be necessary.

How effective is Renuvion at tightening the skin?

While Renuvion cannot achieve the skin removal improvements that a procedure like tummy tuck surgery or a breast lift can, it can certainly tighten the skin significantly on many patients. As always, individual results will vary from patient to patient.

Ultimately, your outcome will depend on the extent of loose skin you currently have, your age and skin elasticity, and other factors such as how much excess fat you have and whether you plan to have liposuction performed as well.

Does Renuvion leave scars?

Typically no, Renuvion will not leave noticeable scars. Of course, results may vary.

If you have visible loose skin you would like to tighten but are concerned about scarring, Renuvion is certainly a preferable procedure compared to skin removal with tummy tuck surgery, breast lift surgery, or similar procedures.

Other potential complications with Renuvion are rare.

Is there anything special I need to do to prepare for Renuvion?

When a person is planning to undergo this procedure, it’s important to meet with their surgeon for a consultation appointment. Your surgeon will give you pre-surgery instructions specific to your situation.  They will also be able to prepare you for what to expect during your Renuvion recovery period.

How much is Renuvion?

Renuvion cost depends on whether you plan to get Renuvion alone or along with another surgery — liposuction, for example. Of course, other factors will influence your final cost as well. We invite you to request a consultation with Dr. David Sieber for a full price quote.

Dr. Sieber is attentive, responsive, and well trained. I had seen him for Botox and filler and he had done both without any pain or bruising and more importantly the results were fabulous. He has met with me on time at each appointment. He communicates what to expect, made sure I was comfortable throughout the procedure, checked on my healing every day post procedure. He couldn’t be more delightful not more talented. I had seen other plastic surgeons for in office treatments over the past decade and Dr. Sieber is at the top of the list in terms of delivering the desired outcome and high quality care.*
