An innovative cosmetic technology to tighten sagging skin without scaring the skin.

About the treatment

The Renuvion (also called J-Plasma) medical device uses a combination of helium gas and radiofrequency (RF) to create the “plasma effect” and improve skin firmness. This new technology offers a long-awaited alternative to more invasive procedures to remove excess skin. Our plastic Surgeon, Dr Laurent Benadiba, was the first to introduce this technology in Switzerland.

Renuvion is a minimally invasive procedure during which the doctor introduces the Renuvion canula under the skin using small entry points. The canula releases the RF energy that will cause a contraction effect on the tissue. The Renuvion allows a precise and controlled delivery of energy, with minimal thermal spread.

Advantages

  • Renuvion may be performed as part of a body reshaping approach, in association with a liposuction.
  • Because the procedure is minimally invasive, the risks of this procedure are lower than with a more invasive surgical skin-reduction intervention (for example an abdominoplasty).
  • The recovery time is much shorter and there is no visible scar.

Benefits

Renuvion offers an effective solution to sagging skin. The most frequent body parts showing excess loose skin is the abdomen (caused by weight loss; pregnancies; liposuction; or part of the skin aging process). The benefits of the treatment are progressive and optimal after a few months. The skin gains in firmness and the body shape is improved.

Good to know

When performed on a small body parts like the under-chin, Renuvion may be done under local anesthesia. However, a general anesthesia is recommended when treating the abdomen, arms or thighs.
