Skin Tightening in Newport Beach, California

Firm, Support, Smooth, and Rejuvenate Your Skin Without Invasive Surgery!

You’ve probably heard the expression, “Father Time is undefeated.” That can be particularly true when it comes to the effect of time ,and sun that cause our skin to age and lose its youthful vibrance. But now, there is a way to give Father Time a run for his money without the expense, hassle, downtime, discomfort, and risk of invasive surgery. Let’s talk about our Newport Beach Renuvion.

What is Renuvion?

Renuvion, formerly known as J-Plasma, uses a device to smooth and improve your skin’s overall condition and appearance using a combination of radiofrequency (RF) energy and helium. This powerful “one-two punch” stimulates ongoing collagen production that firms and supports your skin.

How does Renuvion work?

Reduced to basics, Renuvion provides a contrast of high-energy heat and a stream of cold helium plasma to your skin. The cooling effect reduces the risk of thermal injury that can be caused by treatments that rely on heat alone.

Renuvion can resurface the outer layer of your skin or can be directed subdermally to deeper levels. In subdermal treatment, the device uses a long, thin tube called a cannula to deliver the pairing of RF energy and cold plasma. This causes collagen to contract, providing a firm, smooth foundation for your skin.

Benefits of Renuvion

  • Minimally invasive and safer than more extensive procedures
  • Less downtime than invasive surgery
  • Optimal results
  • Can be combined with other procedures
  • Can treat a wide range of body areas

What areas can be treated by Renuvion?

Renuvion can treat many different body areas, including:

  • Neck
  • Chest
  • Abdomen
  • Hips
  • Arms
  • Underarms
  • Back
  • Waist
  • Flanks
  • Buttocks
  • Inner and outer thighs
  • Jowls and jawline
  • Forehead
  • Immediate eye area
  • Lower face

Are you a candidate for Renuvion?

You are a good candidate if you are a non-smoker who is in good general health. You then become an excellent candidate if you are also within ten pounds of your ideal weight. Renuvion is also commonly done alongside liposuction, because as you are having your fat removed, your skin can be made smoother and more firm and youthful, causing less excess after the fat is removed. So, those receiving liposuction are great candidates.

Is Renuvion for everyone?

No. If you have severe skin laxity, as might be produced by extreme weight loss or multiple pregnancies, you would likely achieve better results with other procedures such as a tummy tuck.



Your Renuvion Procedure

Depending on the size and locations of areas treated, your procedure may be performed under general anesthesia, local anesthesia with sedation, or a local-only anesthetic. The treatment takes about an hour. First, Dr. Hendricks will make one or more tiny incisions into your treatment area. The Renuvion device is then inserted beneath the surface of your skin, allowing for precisely targeted treatment. During the procedure, Dr. Hendricks will control the device’s temperature, timing, and location to optimize both your safety and your results.

Recovery and Aftercare

Once you have recovered from your anesthesia, you can go home with bandages over your incision sites. You may be directed to wear a compression garment for a while. Take it easy for a couple of days. It’s normal to have some soreness and swelling. You should be able to go back to normal day-to-day activities after 48 hours but wait a week or two before resuming strenuous exercise.
