Non-Surgical Arm Lift – Renuvion (J-Plasma)

Tag Archives: Renuvion

Non-Surgical Arm Lift - J-PlasmaRenuvion (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.

VIPS receives patients from Richmond, Fredericksburg and surrounding Virginia communities and suburbs across the landscape for Renuvion (J-Plasma) arm lift.

Renuvion (J-Plasma) body contouring and skin tightening is an innovative minimally invasive treatment that tightens as well as contours saggy skin in almost any area of the body. It can offer particularly desirable results as a non-surgical neck lift procedure.

A special device delivering helium plasma energy via small incisions to the undersurface of the skin in the neck region helps achieve a tauter and more contoured neck appearance.

Renuvion (J-Plasma) can be performed as a stand-alone procedure. However, it is frequently performed along with liposuction cosmetic surgery. While liposuction eliminates fat below the chin and around the neck, Renuvion (J-Plasma) tightens the skin. This provides remarkable improvements to the neck contours without traditional neck lift surgery.

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) neck lift to patients in Richmond, Fredericksburg, and surrounding Virginia communities.  

Renuvion (J-Plasma) Procedure

The same local tumescent anesthesia used for liposuction is also administered in the neck area to perform Renuvion (J-Plasma) neck lift. The surgeon will place small incisions in the treatment area. If the patient is undergoing liposuction along with Renuvion (J-Plasma), the surgeon will perform the liposuction first.

They will then use the same incisions to insert a unique device to deliver helium plasma energy to the skin’s undersurface to tighten and contour it in a precise way. The helium energy immediately tightens the skin and encourages the production of new collagen in the treated skin facilitating improvement which will continue for several months after the procedure.  

What Is Helium Plasma Energy?

In the normal state, helium is an inert, non-reactive gas. But when it is ionized with radiofrequency energy, it becomes reactive.

This is a state that scientist call “plasma.” On contact, helium plasma tightens the skin’s undersurface immediately and to such a degree that is incomparable to other available technologies such as radiofrequency, ultrasound or lasers.

Besides, helium plasma is significantly cooler than laser energy. This makes it much less potentially harmful. Now, there is an FDA-approved device available that can deliver helium plasma in a completely safe and effective manner for skin tightening in almost any area of the body such as torso, neck, abdomen, arms, thighs, back, etc.

Results with Renuvion (J-Plasma) Neck Lift

Both body contouring and skin tightening procedures offer visible outcomes within 1 to 2 weeks, as soon as the inflammation subsides. There is often considerable improvement in the appearance of the neck within one month of the procedure. The helium energy prompts the production of collagen over the next 3 to 6 months following the procedure enabling the neck to appear tauter and more youthful.

Recovery

The patient may experience mild inflammation and light bruising following this procedure. This typically resolves in 7 to 14 days. Even if this procedure is done along with liposuction, there is no additional recovery time than if the patient had received liposuction alone.

The surgeon may recommend recipients of Renuvion (J-Plasma) procedure to wear the same post-op garments as liposuction patients. Similar to liposuction recovery, patients can resume light activities and short walks at home within 2 to 3 days.

J Plasma Before And After PhotosRenuvion (J-Plasma) is an innovative technique designed to create tighter, smoother, and more youthful skin appearance. The procedure is ideally suited for people who want to avoid plastic surgery procedures such as facelift or neck lift surgery.

At the time of pre-op consultation, the surgeon will apprise the patient about the benefits and limitations of Renuvion (J-Plasma) treatment, and help them make an informed choice.

Some surgeons may also prefer to present Renuvion (J-Plasma) before and after photographs at the first appointment. This will give the patient a fair idea of whether J Plasma treatment actually delivers the results it promises, and they can make a more confident decision.

Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery, led by board-certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton Sundin and Dr. Reps Sundin, provides Renuvion (J-Plasma) treatment to patients in Richmond, Fredericksburg and surrounding communities.

What are Renuvion (J-Plasma) Before and After Photographs?

Before and after photographs in case of Renuvion (J-Plasma) skin tightening procedure refer to a set of pictures belonging to a past patient who has undergone the same procedure with good results. The set includes images taken before the treatment and after the treatment at a stage when the recovery is complete and full results of Renuvion (J-Plasma) procedure are visible.

The surgeon will take care to ensure that the photos are obtained with full consent of the patient, and presented before new patients in a discreet manner. The patient’s identity is usually kept confidential as per the established protocol.

The surgeon’s only goal behind this exercise is to utilize the before and after photos to introduce new patients to an innovative treatment like Renuvion (J-Plasma), and help them make a well-considered decision.

Benefits

Face and neck are aesthetically the most prominent and exposed areas of the body. Therefore, patients are often more concerned about any cosmetic procedure that may involve these areas. Renuvion (J-Plasma), in particular, is a new and innovative procedure.

Therefore, to the reassure the patient about its potential effects, the best approach may be to present Renuvion (J-Plasma) before and after photos at the very outset.

The patient may be confused about choices such as whether to undergo Renuvion (J-Plasma) procedure for the face or neck or both, or whether to combine J Plasma with another procedure such as liposuction plastic surgery. In each case, the patient is in a better position to make the right decisions when they have access to Renuvion (J-Plasma) before and after photos.

The real salient fact about this is digital technology. With this type of technology, patients can see with amazing clarity the effects of this surgery on someone else. Armed with this information they can apply it to their own situation pretty much being able to predict the future.

This will be stated again, schedule a consultation so you can view pictures of this particular surgery.

Keeping Reasonable Expectations

Judicious surgeons know that in any aesthetic procedure, the best outcomes are often reported by patients who have a positive outlook, clear goals and reasonable expectations from the beginning. Therefore, the surgeon may like to show Renuvion (J-Plasma) before and after photos to let the patient see for themselves what the procedure can or cannot do for their appearance.

The surgeon may also choose to provide these photos on their practice website for free access to all in order to increase awareness about the new treatment but this case, for Renuvion (J-Plasma), that has not been done yet but this does not mean a patient cannot see these pictures during the consultation. The consultation is free as well.  

Hardworking plastic surgeons at VIPS receive patients from Richmond, Fredericksburg and neighboring areas for Renuvion (J-Plasma) treatment.

What is the Price Tag for J Plasma Treatment?Renuvion (J-Plasma) is a revolutionary new technology designed to tighten loose skin in the face, neck and other areas without involving plastic surgery.

At the time of pre-operative consultation, the surgeon will educate the patient about various aspects of Renuvion (J-Plasma), and how much it may cost the patient to receive this treatment.

Patients should be aware at the outset that Renuvion (J-Plasma) treatment is new and primarily meant for aesthetic enhancement of the skin. Therefore, the patient will have to bear the costs as an out of pocket expense because insurance companies will not offer coverage for J Plasma.

The patient should freely compare the estimated costs of Renuvion (J-Plasma) with other treatment alternatives and make a judicious choice after discussing with the surgeon.

Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery, led by board-certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton Sundin and Dr. Reps Sundin, provides Renuvion (J-Plasma) treatment to patients in Richmond, Fredericksburg and surrounding locations in this part of the country.

Comparing the Costs with Other Procedures

When compared to a plastic surgery procedure such as a facelift or neck lift, Renuvion (J-Plasma) skin tightening will prove to be more cost competitive.

The typical cost components in a plastic surgery procedure are the fee charged by the surgeon, the anesthesiologist’s fee, operating room expenses and pre- and post-surgical costs. Renuvion (J-Plasma) skin tightening procedure can avoid most of these costs because it can be performed in-office using only local anesthesia.

Post-op recovery costs such as medical tests, prescription medications, and appointments with the surgeon will also be significantly lower.

The patient may also choose to compare Renuvion (J-Plasma) treatment costs with the costs of other non-surgical skin tightening treatment options such as laser or RF techniques. Some of the alternative treatments may be more or less expensive, but may not provide the same results at Renuvion (J-Plasma).

The patient should finalize their decision in consultation with the surgeon after evaluating their skin condition, personal cosmetic goals and budget.  

Sticker Price Variations

The costs of Renuvion (J-Plasma) skin tightening procedure can vary from one practice to another and even from one patient to another at the same practice in some cases.

Where the practice is located will make a difference to the costs because the living cost index is not the same in all the cities, and has a bearing on the average costs of goods and services at a particular location.

The level of personalized care and attention, quality standards, advanced technologies, safety protocols, experienced support team, and supervision by a board certified plastic surgeon are some of the key factors that may influence the actual costs at a particular practice.

Whether the patient wants to receive Renuvion (J-Plasma) skin tightening only in the face or neck or both, or even in other body areas, and whether the procedure is performed independently or in conjunction with liposuction, are factors that will affect the cost of J Plasma treatment for a particular patient.

Committed plastic surgeons at VIPS receive patients from Richmond, Fredericksburg and other cities and towns in this region of the country for Renuvion (J-Plasma) treatment.

What is J Plasma?Patients seeking to improve visible aging signs in the face and neck region can choose from a wide range of proven plastic surgery and non-invasive procedures.

Surgeons typically use a combination of surgical and non-surgical procedures such as neck lift, facelift, and liposuction as well as dermal fillers, Botox, lasers, and threads to treat sagging skin and imperfect body contours.  

While cosmetic surgeons have used these traditional treatments effectively for years, now a few surgeons offer the new Renuvion cosmetic technology for tightening the skin, which is powered by Renuvion (J-Plasma).

Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery, led by board-certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton Sundin and Dr. Reps Sundin, provides Renuvion (J-Plasma) treatment to patients in Richmond, Fredericksburg, Tysons Corner, Northern Virginia , Washington DC and surrounding areas. 

Benefits of Renuvion (J-Plasma)

Experts say that Renuvion (J-Plasma) procedure is akin to pushing a “reset” button on your sagging skin. While surgical procedures such as facelift can lift as well as “reposition” facial skin, many patients wish to avoid an invasive plastic surgery procedure.

Renuvion (J-Plasma) is a non-surgical procedure for skin tightening which can substantially treat the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and uneven pigmentation.

The deep and sustainable outcomes achieved with Renuvion (J-Plasma) may not be attainable with some of the usual skin rejuvenation treatments. Furthermore, the device can also make the skin in the neck and under eye area appear smoother and tighter.

The provider may typically recommend the procedure for the entire face and neck region. However, they may also perform spot treatment of the neck/jowl area, mouth, and eyes. Renuvion (J-Plasma) is a single session in-office procedure. The surgeon may perform this procedure in-office using only oral or tumescent anesthesia.

Suitable Candidates

A suitable candidate for this treatment is a person seeking a non-surgical treatment for the following:

  • Imprinted lines or wrinkles on the face and neck
  • Acne Scars
  • Melasma
  • Pigmented facial skin
  • Sunspots
  • Age Spots

How does Renuvion (J-Plasma) Work?

Plasma means an energy state produced by combining energy and gas. Renuvion (J-Plasma) is a cutting-edge energy device that provides a combination of RF energy and cold helium plasma. This offers an exact procedure that almost removes unintended tissue trauma. The surgeon uses a want to delicately “paint” the treatment site with plasma energy.

Renuvion (J-Plasma) Procedure

Though Renuvion (J-Plasma) is a skin tightening procedure, it conveys the ionized energy to the topmost skin layer. This causes the skin to peel revealing a new, brighter skin layer. This new layer is more youthful, tauter, and dazzling.

Renuvion (J-Plasma) is a powerful skin tightening procedure when it is used subdermally (underneath the skin). The provider applies helium gas as well as electrical energy to the skin using a procedure reminiscent of a precise airbrush.

This enables targeted “cool plasma” delivery. This characteristic provides the skin treatment from the outside which causes skin peeling and contracting. If it is applied underneath the skin, it offers a purely tightening effect.

The treatment does not entail any major discomfort and is performed using local anesthesia. Along with numbing the treatment site, the treatment provider may use oral medications and other measures to manage the patient’s discomfort.

Prudent plastic surgeons at VIPS receive patients from Richmond, Fredericksburg, and other suburbs and communities in this area of the country for Renuvion (J-Plasma) skin tightening procedure.
