Do you have sagging skin that you want to tighten up without resorting to surgery? Did you recently have a baby and want to tighten the loose skin left behind on your tummy? If the answer to either of these questions is “yes”, you might be the perfect candidate for Renuvion, an innovative skin tightening treatment now available at South Coast Plastic Surgery, the premier aesthetic enhancement clinic in Irvine.


What is Renuvion?

Renuvion is a unique, minimally-invasive procedure that uses a blend of helium plasma and RF energy to contract the underlying tissues of the skin, which helps to tighten and tone sagging skin. Also called J Plasma, the system produces a specific type of helium (plasma). Helium gas processed with radiofrequency energy causes the skin to shrink on the treatment site without causing discomfort or requiring surgery.

During your Renuvion treatment, a thin cannula is inserted through tiny incisions to deliver the helium plasma, which is then energized with radiofrequency energy, which results in immediate contraction of the soft tissues and the stimulation of collagen production.

The Renuvion procedure takes 30 minutes or more, depending on the size of the treatment area, and can be performed with local, oral, or general anesthesia.

What areas can be tightened with Renuvion?

The Renuvion device can tighten your skin in a range of areas, including:

  • Upper arms
  • Abdomen
  • Love handles
  • Buttocks
  • Thighs
  • Face
  • Neck
  • Knees
  • Tummy

What are the benefits of Renuvion Skin Tightening? 

Renuvion skin tightening has a number of benefits for patients who don’t desire a surgical procedure, but who are experiencing unwanted skin laxity. Renuvion benefits include the following:

  • Requires extremely small incisions
  • Has a short procedure time
  • Noticeably tightens and firms the skin
  • Provides a minimally invasive skin tightening treatment
  • Stimulates collagen, your body’s natural method of regenerating the skin
  • Needs only one treatment to achieve results
  • Produces results that continue to improve over time
  • Requires a short downtime
  • Can be used to treat a number of different areas
  • Produces dramatic results  

How does Renuvion work?

The Renuvion system works by sending a stream of energy called helium plasma into the skin structure. This energy works to shrink the collagen fibers in your skin, pulling them tighter while triggering new collagen growth. The combination of helium gas and radiofrequency energy is the magic behind this innovative, non-surgical treatment.

Helium plasma is heated to a temperature of 100 degrees Fahrenheit before it touches the tissue underneath the skin. Renuvion technology applies radiofrequency energy to ionize helium gas. This creates cold plasma energy that is delivered beneath the skin’s surface, instantly contracting the soft tissues, and dramatically stimulating collagen production. This is how the Renuvion treatment causes instant and long-term results.

What is the treatment like?

The tiny device is inserted just beneath your skin in the area to be treated. The placement is so shallow that you can actually see it through your skin. Once the plasma generator has been placed beneath the skin, the heat produced from the plasma triggers instant skin tightening. Imagine shrink-wrap for your skin – this technology creates a similar tightening experience.

Am I a good candidate for Renuvion skin tightening?

You’re a good candidate for Renuvion if you have mild to moderate sagging skin. If you have a more severe level of skin laxity, you may be a better candidate for a surgical skin tightening.

How long does the procedure take?

A Renuvion skin tightening treatment takes only about 30 to 60 minutes to perform, depending on the size of the treatment area. This procedure may be performed with local anesthesia. It can also be combined with a surgical procedure to enhance results.

When will I see the results from Renuvion skin tightening?

You’ll begin to see results almost immediately, with your skin looking tighter and firmer. Your skin will then continue to improve over the following six to nine months as collagen production continues.

What is the recovery like?

Most patients feel well enough to return to work or other activities by the following day, while others may need a few more days. You can expect some post-treatment skin redness. You will need to wear a compression garment at the treatment site for the first week or two. Most patients find the recovery period to be brief and any residual discomfort very mild and easily managed with over-the-counter pain medication.

Can Renuvion be used on my face?

Yes. We’re excited to offer this transformative healing care to address your facial concerns. Renuvion produces noticeable skin tightening and firming, stimulates collagen production to regenerate the skin naturally, and entails minimal downtime for our patients.
