I have been talking about the amazing properties for the Renuvion Plasma (formerly known as J-Plasma) and the resultant skin tightening we are seeing in our LipoSculpting patients. A lot of speculation as to how it really worked have now been proven through meticulous patient research by many of my colleagues around the U.S. This Renuvion Skin system is only used by about 900 or so surgeons in the United States and continues to amaze each of us as to the efficiency it has with skin tightening at Lipo and also its unique skin re-surfacing properties. New understanding of the action was recently published and showed its efficacy was even better than when initially FDA approved. Basically, with skin tightening at Lipo, it works like no other devise on the market. After fat is removed from the site the Renuvion Plasma energy is dispersed through the area. Studies in actual cases show that the plasma energy is absorbed in the structural columns between the skin and the underlying muscle/fascial layer. This then causes an immediate contracture of the columns and a pull down of the skin. With multiple passes over multiple areas an overall lift and pull in of large areas of skin can be achieved. Best of all, that contraction of skin continues over the next several weeks as the energy sets off a healing cascade that continues to work. In my observation, the skin pull can be felt while performing this step and the overall skin quality is improved in further post operative exams. In some smaller areas such as over the ribs the laser that I have been using for years still gives excellent skin tightening also. The new studies out recently on Renuvion showed about a 20% increase in skin tightening over laser alone.
Genesis is proud to be the exclusive center in South Carolina using the Renuvion Plasma system for skin tightening with Liposuction. We are also only one of 6 in the two Carolinas with this amazing technology. It is now an integral and important part of our combination approach to LipoSculpting using VASER, Laser and now Renuvion.
