Renuvion® Skin Tightening in Naples, FL


Naples Plastic Surgery

Renuvion® is a non-surgical procedure that uses precise streams of plasma energy to tighten and refresh loose skin. The procedure is emerging as a perfect option for those wishing to tighten skin without resorting to more invasive procedures that leave noticeable scars and require much longer downtimes
Renuvion® is similar to laser liposuction treatments in that it uses targeted heat energy to breakdown tissue under the skin. While laser liposuction targets and kills fat cells, Renuvion® targets cells in the subdermal connective tissues, with the plasma energy causing immediate skin contraction and longer-term skin remodeling and collagen production.

Originally marketed under the J-Plasma® brand 20 years ago, the technology has been adopted for a variety of surgical applications in recent years due to its safety profile, ability to minimize thermal spread to other areas, and effectiveness. In particular, cosmetic surgeons helped drive its use for skin tightening, with many calling it one of the most exciting advancements they’ve seen in two decades.

Renuvion® in Naples

The Renuvion® skin tightening procedure is proving to be the perfect complement to enhance liposuction, as it optimizes skin contraction after the underlying fat has been removed. In fact, Dr. Leopoldo Baccaro and Dr. Jason Crespo find that using Renuvion® in conjunction with liposuction provides Naples Plastic Surgery patients with more noticeably defined contours than those who undergo liposuction alone. This enhanced definition continues to improve over the ensuing six to nine months due to ongoing healing of the subdermal tissues and increased collagen production.

Whether in conjunction with liposuction or as a stand-aloneinimally invasive procedure, Renuvion® can be used to tighten and refresh skin in these areas:

  • Abdomen
  • Sides
  • Arms
  • Thighs
  • Lower face and neck

Because the effectiveness of Renuvion® varies by skin and body types, Dr. Baccaro or Dr. Crespo assess potential patients with an examination and consultation to determine whether they are good candidates for the procedure. 

Your Renuvion® Procedure

Because the effectiveness of Renuvion® varies by skin and body types, Dr. Baccaro or Dr. Crespo assess all potential patients with an examination and consultation to determine whether they are good candidates for the procedure.
Depending upon the treatment aims and targeted area, your Renuvion® skin tightening procedure will be conducted under either a local anesthetic with oral sedation or under general anesthesia. Once you are prepped, Dr. Baccaro or Dr. Crespo will make some small incisions into and under the skin through which a thin wand will be inserted. The wand then precisely delivers a stream of Helium plasma and RF energy into the tissues below the skin’s surface.
The combination of targeted heat and ionic and reactive particles from the plasma induce a contraction in the dermis and underlying tissue. This immediately helps tone the skin and reduce any of its crepe-like appearance. As previously noted, the enhanced tone and tightening will continue to improve over subsequent months.
Once all targeted areas have been treated, the incisions are sutured and patients are free to leave when they feel well enough. Depending upon the extent of treatment full recovery can take up to two weeks, though some redness on the skin may be noticeable for up to a month. For limited treatments, most patients only require a mild over-the-counter pain killer, but more extensive work may necessitate a day or two of more powerful prescription pain killers.
Drs. Baccaro and Crespo typically like to conduct a follow up exam several weeks after the procedure to ensure full healing of treated areas and to assess the continued improvements to skin tone and contours.
