We all know the keys to healthy, beautiful skin: lots of sleep, sunscreen, and a healthy diet. But what if the hands of time are too powerful? Aging and environmental stressors can all add up over the years, turning your once flawless complexion into duller, rougher, and older looking skin.
Sometimes, you need the very best in science to achieve that youthful, glowing skin. The Almonte Center is proud to provide the Renuvion/J-Plasma skin resurfacing system, a state-of-the-art device that’s the next progression in non-surgical skin resurfacing. Using plasma technology, the Renuvion/J-Plasma skin resurfacing can remove the damaged, older layers of skin with remarkable precision to reveal the young, healthy skin underneath.
The Renuvion/J-Plasma skin resurfacing can treat a wide range of skin conditions: wrinkles, sun damage, and discoloration—and it can do it with fewer treatments and minimal downtime. Best of all, the Renuvion/J-Plasma skin resurfacing can stimulate natural collagen production, so patients with sagging skin can enjoy non-surgical skin tightening.
The Almonte Center is one of the very first practices nationwide to offer the Renuvion/J-Plasma skin resurfacing procedure. The Renuvion/J-Plasma device’s incredibly precise mechanism allows for a greater amount of control, making it optimal for treating delicate areas (like the ones around the eyes and lips) without harming the skin. With Renuvion/J-Plasma skin resurfacing, our patients can have a treatment that’s light years ahead of what a laser system can provide.
Renuvion/J-Plasma skin resurfacing is a remarkable treatment for facial rejuvenation. From superficial blemishes on the skin to tougher signs of aging like sagging skin, the Renuvion/J-Plasma skin resurfacing system can address them all. Renuvion/J-Plasma can treat:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Smoker’s lines (perioral rhytids)
- Wrinkles around the eyes
- Sagging skin
- Sun Spots
- Rough, uneven skin
Plasma technology allows the Renuvion/J-Plasma device to ablate the skin at a fraction of the temperature of laser; that means it can resurface skin at much deeper depths than a traditional system. And while other laser systems can’t treat the delicate areas around the eyes and mouth, the Renuvion/J-Plasma device is commonly used to reduce wrinkles like crow’s feet and “smoker’s lines.”
Renuvion/J-Plasma skin resurfacing procedure is so powerful that it only needs one treatment to effectively treat certain conditions. After one session, many patients notice a dramatic improvement and naturally smoother, tighter, and younger looking skin. And in many cases, Renuvion/J-Plasma skin resurfacing results last for a very long time.
One way our patients can have true, comprehensive rejuvenation is by combining their Renuvion/J-Plasma system treatment with a facelift. With this pairing, patients can address severe drooping on the face and neck while improving the quality of their skin. It’s the best way to create dramatic rejuvenation while rebuilding the skin at the cellular level.
The Renuvion/J-Plasma skin resurfacing treatment is performed comfortably under local anesthesia. An oral sedative is provided to start the treatment, and nerve blocks are placed prior to the procedure.
During the Renuvion/J-Plasma skin resurfacing procedure, Dr. Almonte will use the device to treat a specific area so that the narrow plasma beam can ablate the outer skin layer (also known as the epidermis.) Once the whole face has been treated, the ablated epidermal layer may be wiped away. Certain patients may receive a second pass, which treats the dermis underneath the epidermis, depending upon the severity of their wrinkles. Patients with less severe wrinkles have the dermal layer left intact for quicker healing.
The ideal candidate for Renuvion/J-Plasma is a patient with fair skin, moderate signs of aging, and some relaxation on the face.
As the skin heals from the Renuvion/J-Plasma skin resurfacing treatment, patients will experience temporary side effects like skin peeling and redness. These side effects are expected to last for at least two weeks, but they should feel very mild and can be easily treated with over-the-counter pain medication. Some residual redness might last for up to six months, but this usually can be covered with makeup after 2 weeks.
Overall, it takes a minimum of two weeks to recover from a Renuvion/J-Plasma skin resurfacing treatment.
The Renuvion/J-Plasma procedure uses advanced plasma technology to resurface and rebuild the skin down to the cellular level. While other skin resurfacing devices use immense heat, the plasma coagulates the tissues without burning the skin. The Renuvion/J-Plasma energy beam essentially eliminates the outer layer of skin, removing blemishes, damaged skin, and finer signs of aging. Concurrently, the skin reacts to the “wound” by starting a healing “cascade” that stimulates collagen production and new skin cell growth. Gradually, the skin heals into a smoother, cleaner, and younger version of itself.
Unlike laser or light treatments, the Renuvion/J-Plasma skin resurfacing uses an ionized helium plasma beam. This type of plasma beam allows for a more intricate level of control, and it operates at a fraction of the temperature of laser treatments. That means that the Renuvion/J-Plasma skin resurfacing is so efficient that it’s less likely to harm surrounding tissue, so patients can rest assured the treatment is as safe and efficient as a non-surgical treatment can be.
Renuvion/J-Plasma skin resurfacing can tighten sagging skin, but not to the degree that a surgical procedure can. Surgical procedures like the A-Lift can do wonders for physically lifting loose skin, but not all signs of aging have to do with skin elasticity; residual damage like sun spots, hyperpigmentation, and wrinkles can’t be directly treated with a lift. If you do want to address drooping skin, patients always have the option of pairing their Renuvion/J-Plasma skin resurfacing procedure with a facelift.
Incredible technology backed up by outstanding care: It’s the Almonte Center way. Dr. Almonte is more than happy to help you decide if the Renuvion/J-Plasma skin resurfacing procedure is for you.
