J-Plasma Renuvion Body Contouring

J-Plasma Renuvion Body ContouringThe J-Plasma Renuvion body lift and skin tightening procedure can effectively re-contour the body. Patients can accomplish a more youthful body shape as well as tauter skin without undergoing excisional surgery. J-Plasma Renuvion is an efficient procedure that can be safely administered in-office.

This body lift procedure may involve the use of local anesthesia and oral sedation to ensure that the patient remains comfortable.

People seeking a more contoured and firmer body may find the J-Plasma Renuvion treatment to be highly beneficial. The procedure involves minimal downtime and discomfort to lift and tighten lax tissue.

The Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery (VIPS), led by board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton M. Sundin and Dr. Reps B. Sundin, provides J-Plasma treatment to patients in Richmond, Fredericksburg, Tysons Corner, Northern Virginia, Washington DC, and surrounding communities in this part of the country.


Treatment Area

J-Plasma powered Renuvion body lift can firm and contour the below mentioned areas very effectively:

  • Upper arms
  • Abdomen
  • Flanks
  • Upper and lower back
  • Chest


Plasma Energy

The Renuvion body lift and skin tightening involve the use of a specialized device to target cold plasma energy to the treatment site.

This cold plasma is produced by ionizing helium gas with RF energy. Helium is a highly stable gas which can be energized at very low levels of energy enabling this treatment to be targeted, safe, and effective.

As cold plasma is not heat-based like lasers, the procedure involves minimal risk of injury to the treated tissues. These cold plasma characteristics make it an ideal treatment for patients who desire body contouring with minimal discomfort, downtime, and risks.


Suitable Candidates

Renuvion body lift and skin tightening procedure is a suitable treatment for individuals with mild to moderate sagging skin. A person can develop loose skin and uneven contours due to major weight loss or aging.

In addition, it is ideal for people who have undergone liposuction or another nonsurgical body sculpting procedure in the past and are seeking further contouring, toning, and tightening.  



The time taken to complete this procedure is between one to two hours. The patient will be administered local anesthesia to numb the treatment areas.

Subsequently, the Renuvion provider will place tiny incisions on the affected sites. They will use these incisions to apply the Renuvion device on the skin’s undersurface to deliver cold plasma energy to the tissue layers being treated.

This will immediately constrict, tighten, and firm the tissue from inside out. Patients will instantly notice the treatment benefits, and the effects will continually enhance over time. The cold plasma energy will prompt the production of new collagen fibers for fuller, smoother skin and longer lasting outcomes.



A majority of patients can resume their routine activities in around two to three days following the procedure. In around three weeks, they can restart exercising as well. The treatment provider may prescribe some pain medicines to help the patient remain comfortable during the initial recovery phase.


Over the next few months, the treated sites will continue to improve offering more youthful looking outcomes. Experienced cosmetic surgeons at VIPS receive patients from Richmond, Fredericksburg, Tysons Corner, Northern Virginia, Washington DC, and nearby areas for J-Plasma.
