Renuvion (J-Plasma) is effective on almost any part of the body with loose, saggy skin. It offers especially dramatic outcomes in the case of tightening the lax skin of the upper arms. Individuals with lax, hanging skin in the upper arms may sometimes find that liposuction alone is not adequate.
A traditional arm lift plastic surgery also may not be their first choice for one reason or another. In such cases, Renuvion (J-Plasma) can offer desirable improvements to the upper arm skin in a less invasive way.
The Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery (VIPS), led by board-certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton M. Sundin and Dr. Reps B. Sundin, provides Renuvion (J-Plasma) arm lift to patients in Richmond, Fredericksburg and surrounding Virginia communities in this part of the east coast.
Tightening Upper Arms without Traditional Brachioplasty
Notably, tightening lax skin in upper arms has always been challenging without traditional surgical excision (brachioplasty). But now in many cases, Renuvion (J-Plasma) in conjunction with liposuction provides a scar-less, minimal downtime option.
People who find the loose or sagging skin in the upper arms undesirable and who do not want to undergo traditional arm lift plastic surgery may achieve highly satisfying results with Renuvion (J-Plasma) arm lift in a minimally invasive way.
What is Plasma Energy?
Cold plasma is produced when helium gas is energized by radiofrequency energy and delivered via the Renuvion (J-Plasma) device. Helium gas is quite stable. Therefore, it can be ionized at very low energy to enable a targeted, predictable, and flexible delivery. Cold plasma is cooler in comparison to laser energy.
This makes the Renuvion (J-Plasma) arm lift procedure safer and with a lesser chance of damage to the tissue. Patients also experience a faster recovery.
The degree of revitalization and improvement from cold plasma energy is unmatched in comparison to other available technologies. Treatments such as laser, ultrasound or radiofrequency are incapable of tightening and firming skin safely to this level.
Preparation for Surgery
The surgeon will explain various aspects of the procedure to the patient in advance. They will address any concerns that the patient may have and understand their aesthetic goals from the procedure.
Before the procedure, the surgeon will instruct the patient to refrain from using products with ginseng, vitamin E, aspirin, and garlic for 2 weeks as these may heighten the risk of bruising. If the patient is a smoker, the surgeon will require them to quit smoking, at least for 2 weeks.
How is Renuvion (J-Plasma) Arm Lift Performed?
The Renuvion (J-Plasma) procedure is undertaken in-office using local anesthesia. The surgeon will commence the J Plasma arm lift procedure by placing small, discreet incision strategically on the upper arm in the areas where the skin is loose or hanging.
Then the surgeon will use the Renuvion (J-Plasma) device sub-dermally (underneath the skin) to deliver cold plasma. This will immediately tighten, shrink, and rejuvenate skin from within. The outcomes are instant and continue improving as the body recovers.
The surgeon and their team will monitor the patient’s condition following the procedure. The upper arm area usually feels slightly tight or sore after the Renuvion (J-Plasma) treatment. The surgeon may prescribe mild pain medications for minor discomfort. The patient should immediately contact the surgeon if the pain is persistent or unbearable.
