Renuvion J-Plasma delivers even, controlled plasma energy with exceptional precision. The j plasma treatment can be completed in as little as 30 minutes or up to two hours, depending on the size and number of the treatment areas. It can be used as a standalone procedure or complement liposuction. It functions similarly to laser skin resurfacing but without the heat that can damage the surrounding tissues.
Before surgery, Dr. Kwak administers local anesthesia to numb the target area, so you will be awake during the procedure. Just as with liposuction, he strategically places tiny incisions for accessibility to the target area, and the thin Renuvion handpiece is then inserted subdermally. The plasma technology emits a plasma beam that quickly heats to the ideal temperature and then cools the tissue in less than one second. This process causes the soft tissue to contract and stimulates collagen production. The application is gentle, yet the results are dramatic. Results are noticeable after the procedure and will continually improve while the skin heals and produces new collagen, usually within 6-9 months.
