Traditional Neck Liposuction Vs J-Plasma Renuvion™
Many patients are concerned about skin laxity and sagging around the neck, some common signs of aging that can start appearing as early as your 40s. Until recently, skin laxity and sagging could only be treated with traditional neck liposuction or fillers, and even those options don’t always produce significant results.
Vive Plastic Surgery now offers advanced facial skin tightening with J-Plasma by Renuvion, a minimally-invasive procedure that offers many benefits of a traditional neck liposuction. Whether you’re concerned about loose skin around the jawline or ‘crepey’ skin on the neck, this revolutionary skin tightening procedure can tighten, tone, and firm up the skin without extensive surgery.
What is J-Plasma By Renuvion™?
Renuvion™ is a technology based on plasma energy, which is why it is also referred to as J Plasma. Everyday objects can be classified into solids, liquids, and gases. However, the matter in a lightning bolt, a flame, and the Aurora Borealis are something quite different, they are plasma energy. Plasma is the 4th state of matter.
Plasma energy is produced when fusion takes place in a controlled and magnetized environment. Plasma is a gas in which a sufficient amount of energy is present to enable ions and electrons to coexist.
Is J-plasma by Renuvion™ for the neck right for you?
Many skin tightening treatments for the neck on the market today simply can’t deliver on the promise to tighten the skin deep within the tissue to create a significant difference. Hard-to-treat areas, such as the jowls and the upper neck, can now be treated with the J-Plasma by Renuvion procedure.
This minimally-invasive procedure is ideal for patients that have very thin skin around the neck and loose skin around the jawline. Even though it uses heat to stimulate collagen production and tissue tightening, the energy is controlled at a level that will not burn or damage even thinner skin tissue. This is why we can use it to tighten up a ‘turkey neck’ or to treat loose skin around the chin and lower jaw areas without damaging the skin.
Benefits of J-Plasma By Renuvion™ for the neck
• Fast recovery time
• Very small incisions needed
• Tightens skin at a deeper level than other treatments
• Little to no risk of skin damage or burns
• Only one treatment required
• Noticeable results within a couple of weeks of treatment
What can I expect after my treatment?
For lower face and neck you will need to wear a compression garment for 3 days (24 hours each day) and 6 weeks while you are at home or as much as possible. You will have some swelling and tenderness for several weeks and patients usually start to see results around 3 weeks. Your results will continue to improve for several months.
Final results take about 3 months and can continue to improve even through month 6.
