Renuvion (previously known as J Plasma) is a cosmetic treatment that is designed to tighten your skin. This minimally-invasive procedure works by applying both radiofrequency (RF) waves and helium gas to your skin to create cold plasma energy.
This cold plasma is injected under your skin, which causes contraction in your septae, which are the fibrous bands between your muscle and skin. As they shrink, your skin will also contract and smooth itself out. As only some of the helium gas becomes plasma, the rest allows the treatment area to stay cool, which produces the effect of cooling and heating the skin simultaneously, which is why Renuvion is not only unique, it’s also incredibly effective.
Because Renuvion body contouring treatments are minimally invasive, they do not require extensive surgery or the accompanying recovery time. In addition, the device creates an extremely precise beam of energy, which makes targeting treatment areas even easier. It also treats lines and wrinkles, reducing their appearance. Best of all, Renuvion can be used all over your body, from your neck to tummy to thighs and back.
While there are variations in everyone’s skin needs, ideal candidates for Renuvion have loose skin somewhere on their body. This can be from weight loss, aging, or other environmental reasons. Candidates should also be at a relatively stable weight. Renuvion is also a great companion procedure to Abdominoplasty, so if you are getting a tummy tuck, you might be a good candidate for Renuvion. To find out if you’re a candidate, contact the Plastic Surgery Institute and schedule a consultation.
This is an outpatient procedure that will happen right at the Plastic Surgery Institute’s facilities. The procedure only takes 1-2 hours.
You will get local anesthesia on your target area and may take an oral sedative as well If you are having Renuvion as part of a tummy tuck or other procedure, you may be placed under general anesthesia. During the procedure, the surgeon will make tiny incisions in the target area to insert the Renuvion device. Once it has been applied under your skin, the doctor will treat your next area if you have more than one done.

After your Beverly Hills Renuvion skin tightening treatment, there will be some swelling and possibly bruising. You may also feel a little sore. This should fade in a couple of days, so depending on what areas you have treated and how many, you may want to take some time off of work or other obligations. It’s also recommended that you wear a compression garment over the area you had treated, which speeds up healing and reduces discomfort, such as soreness.
After their skin tightening with Renuvion Beverly Hills patients can expect to see results immediately in the target area.
However, you will continue to see improvements over the following three months. As long as your weight remains stable, the results are permanent. And while you will still continue to age, the treated areas will remain tighter and smoother than untreated areas.

No, especially as the target area will be numb. However, there may be some discomfort due to tightness from the device and some soreness and bruising after the treatment.
Not really. Unlike surgery, this process works by stimulating your skin via the Renuvion technology, so the incisions are extremely small - only 5 mm - and placed to minimize their appearance.
Because there are different costs for different treatment areas and/or a combination of treatment areas, the exact price varies from patient to patient. To get an exact quote, call or email set up your consultation with the Plastic Surgery Institute. Renuvion is considered a cosmetic treatment, so it is not generally covered by insurance. In that case, you will need to cover the costs yourself. Financing and payment plans are available if needed.
