Do you have sagging, lax skin, or wrinkles on your face or body? Board-certified plastic surgeon Adam J. Rubinstein, M.D., F.A.C.S., is proud to offer Renuvion™ to the residents of Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and all throughout South Florida from his Aventura office.
What is Renuvion™?
Renuvion™, formerly known as J-Plasma®, is a minimally-invasive skin resurfacing and tightening treatment that combines the unique properties of helium plasma with the efficiency of radiofrequency energy to create a dual thermal effect. Renuvion™ is FDA cleared for cutting, coagulation and ablation of soft tissue during open and laparoscopic surgical procedures and requires little downtime.
What are the Benefits of the Renuvion™?
Renuvion™ can provide patients with surgical results, without the downtime and invasive nature of surgery. Renuvion™ can dramatically improve the appearance of:
- Acne Scars
- Age Spots
- Crow’s Feet
- Marionette Lines
- Loose skin
In addition to treating skin on the face, Renuvion™ can also erase brown spots, even skin tone, diminish damaged skin, remove fine lines and wrinkles and tighten loose skin on many areas of the body such as the abdomen, breasts, back, arms, thighs and neck.
How Does Renuvion™ Work?
The Renuvion™ procedure is performed by Dr. Rubinstein by inserting a long, thin metal cannula or tube into strategically placed incisions at the target area. The handheld device then converts a small amount of helium gas into plasma, which contours to the application area and evenly delivers the energy. Since less than 0.01% of the helium is converted into plasma, the unconverted gas can flow across the tissue, drawing away excess heat and minimizing any unintended thermal effect.
What Can I Expect Before, During, and After Renuvion™?
A Renuvion™ procedure usually takes about an hour depending on the size of the treatment area. Patients will be given tumescent anesthesia to numb pain during the procedure. Following the procedure, pain is minimal and can be managed with an over-the-counter pain reliever. Patients wear a compression garment for the first 72-hours. There can be mild swelling and bruising that should resolve in one to two weeks. Most patients can resume normal activities and return to work in three to five days post procedure. The treated skin will continue to shrink over the next three to six months and become firmer.
Who is a Strong Candidate for Renuvion™?
Anyone who is healthy and suffering from skin laxity, wrinkles, blemishes, and other skin conditions could benefit from Renuvion™. Renuvion™ is ideal for patients who want surgical results without the downtime and complexity associated with traditional surgery.
What is the Cost of Renuvion™ in Miami?
Because Renuvion™ is a cosmetic procedure, your insurance does not cover the treatment cost. Dr. Rubinstein proudly offers financing
