How Does Laser Skin Tightening Work?

The effects of skin laxity and age aren’t limited to the face. Age-related loose skin can occur on the neck, arms, and even legs. Pregnancy, childbirth, and significant weight loss can create loose skin concerns on the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs. 

Dr. David Mashhadian’s commitment to providing his patients with the latest technology in the cosmetic enhancement industry brings Renuvion®, the most advanced skin tightening treatment of its kind. Renuvion® restores skin’s smooth firmness, and it does so from the inside, where the skin is most effectively tightened.

How Does Renuvion® Laser Skin Tightening Work?

Renuvion® was once called J Plasma, and its innovative technology targets the skin from an unlikely angle—on the inside. When radiofrequency (RF) energy interacts with helium gas, it creates a very stable cool plasma beam that only reaches 100° rather than the 300°-600° of RF or ultrasound energy. Dr. Mashhadian applies this plasma beam to the underside of your skin through a tiny catheter to coagulate, ablate, and strategically cut soft tissues. Skin contracts, collagen production is boosted, and your skin’s support structures are revitalized to bring back skin’s youthful firmness with more collagen fibers for support.

The best part is some of this improvement happens in seconds under Dr. Mashhadian’s watchful eye, so he can contour your soft tissues in real-time to maximize your skin tightening. Renuvion® reverses time, tightening and renewing your skin’s firmness without damaging nearby tissues.

Renuvion® can be performed laparoscopically on its own or combined with open procedures like a tummy tuck or mommy makeover. Renuvion’s® extraordinary results can restore skin’s firmness for your:

  • Neck
  • Arms
  • Back
  • Sides or flanks
  • Abdomen
  • Hips
  • Buttocks
  • Thighs and legs

Am I a Good Candidate for Renuvion®?

Because Renuvion® uses RF energy and helium to create the plasma beam, it doesn’t interact with the skin’s pigment. This means patients of all skin types with concerns about skin laxity can be considered candidates for Renuvion’s® exceptional results. If you have loose skin you’d like to firm up and tighten, but you’re unsure an invasive surgery is the answer, Renuvion® may be precisely the treatment to suit you. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Mashhadian to find out.

What is the Laser Skin Tightening Procedure Like?

Dr. Mashhadian’s patient-centric approach covers your complete medical history and your aesthetic goals to determine just how Renuvion® will reset your skin. If you’ve opted for a standalone treatment, it will only take 30 minutes in the comfort of Rodeo Surgical Art’s treatment rooms for your procedure to be complete.

If you’re having Renuvion® as part of a greater procedure plan, your Renuvion® treatment will be conducted in our state-of-the-art surgical suite. Dr. Mashhadian will carefully direct the plasma beam where your skin most needs it, contracting tissues for visible tightening and improving your appearance.

What are the Benefits of Renuvion® Skin Tightening?

Dr. Mashhadian believes minimizing recovery times will maximize patient outcomes and achieve the greatest results, and Renuvion® on its own requires minimal recovery time. Only the tiniest of incisions are necessary for the standalone procedure. Because Dr. Mashhadian takes great care not to damage nearby tissues, your recovery is weeks shorter than more invasive skin removal and tightening procedures.

Scarring is kept to a minimum. More traditional skin removal processes involve long scars because extensive incisions are often necessary to achieve good aesthetic results. The incisions with Renuvion® are no bigger than those used in liposuction, about 2mm-4mm.

Indisputable results mean you’ll have noticeably tighter skin immediately with Renuvion®. Skin’s structures contract on contact with the plasma beam, so you’ll see some tightening right away. As collagen production improves, your skin will continue to firm up over the next few months, behaving like much younger skin.

What Results Can I Expect After Renuvion®?

While Renuvion® cannot prevent new signs of aging from forming, it can restore your skin’s youthful behavior and structure. This means any further laxity or wrinkles begin on skin with a much younger starting point, giving you long-term results after your Renuvion® procedure. Change the rules on your skin’s aging process with Renuvion®.
