Renuvion® J Plasma

If you’re experiencing the loss of tissue elasticity and sagging skin, Renuvion®, formerly known as J-Plasma®, may be the solution you’re looking for. This minimally invasive skin tightening procedure combines helium gas and radiofrequency energy that converts to cold helium plasma. The result? A level of tissue tightening that was previously only attainable with an invasive procedure and significant downtime. It can be used with or without laser liposuction on virtually any area of the body to help achieve optimal skin tightening results.

How Does Renuvion J Plasma Skin Tightening Work?

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.

How Does Renuvion J Plasma Work with Liposuction?

While laser liposuction (or SmartLipo) has some skin tightening benefits, j plasma takes liposuction results to a new level in revealing a more contoured, tight appearance. It’s ideal for patients who have loose skin after a significant weight loss or are experiencing the effects of aging with mild to moderate skin laxity.

Liposuction is a popular body contouring procedure that removes fat deposits under the skin. Smart Lipo uses laser energy to melt the fat, and then it is gently suctioned from the body. It is performed on many areas of the body, including:

Renuvion skin tightening can treat the same areas of the body and is delivered after liposuction to tighten those areas and increase the effects.

“I enjoyed my experience at The Lumen Center. Dr. Kwak and the entire staff made me feel really comfortable from the start. I had Smart Lipo with skin tightening. Saw results immediately, still in my recovery stage and can’t wait to see final results. Thanks Lumen Center for snatching my waist.”

The moment you walk in it feels like home! Everyone is so accommodating, I was nervous about my procedure before going but once I stepped foot into the office I knew I was in great hands. Dr Kwok is patient with a very calming spirit. With every follow up Jen was amazing with letting me know my progress and things I should & shouldn’t do to heal faster. Courtney is always so sweet and willing to answer any questions. Melissa oh that Melissa she has a way of just making you smile and feel welcomed!! I highly recommend The Lumen Center! All of the Ladies in this office are terrific!!

Very excited to write a review for some of the most talented and kindest people in this industry! 5 stars all around and I would not go anywhere else if I am considering smart lipo+ renuvion! And anything listed on their website. In short this is my round 2 of lipo and I certainly can see the difference with the artistic tendencies and vast knowledge coupled with thoroughness of Dr.Kwak, the kindness & expertise of everyone involved in this process. Starting with the easeness to schedule and consult,Dr. kwak's spot on assessment of my requirement & what can be done convinced me to not think twice to book my surgery. Also thank you Rob for putting me at ease & helping me decide on such a big thing for myself! This place in this past 5 weeks has made me feel so well looked after and encouraging my recovery process with careful assessment and personalized resolutions. I am blown away by everyone starting with Julie,Jen ( both of whom have been so so amazing during surgery and guiding with best after care- THANK YOU) Courtney- thank you for all the pictures & keeping me calm with your very encouraging words always and everyone in the front desk, all of whom who seem to love what they do and making every step so easy, this energy simply radiates back to the patients. I am very excited to see my final results and can't wait for my next round of procedures and be a long standing customer for various other things too! Thanks again for being so awesome, I am thrilled to be part of this Lumen experience!

I could not be any more happier with the hair transplant I received. This week marks a year since my procedure and the results are remarkable. Not going to lie, I am a very impatient person and pretty skeptical, but the team calmed me down, and sure enough, I saw the results I was dreaming of. I started to significantly lose my hair since I was 18 and as a 25 year old, the amount I lost at my age destroyed my confidence and my ability to even look in a mirror or take pictures with people. It was eating me alive. The Lumen Center team restored my hair and my outlook on life. I am incredibly grateful and if anyone else is considering a hair transplant, I highly recommend this facility. Take a look at the results for yourself!

I just had a second procedure at Lumen Center (Smart lipo). Dr Kwak and his team were so knowledgeable and explained the process from start to finish. I was somewhat nervous but I'm so happy with the outcome. Fitting into some old outfits gave me a real boost of self esteem. I can't say enough about their remarkable compassion and encouragement during each follow up visit as well. The results exceeded my expectations!

Lumen Center is Amazing!!! From the staff to the customer service. I had Smart Lipo with Renuvion done almost two months ago and I will say from consultation to now post op/ aftercare I have not one complaint! Julie, Megan, Gen, Courtney, Dr. Kwak are amazing. If you’re looking for a practice that’ll treat you as royalty and give you great results for your body type, Lumen Center is the place to go. My results are amazing from a size XL to a Medium in less than two months. I get compliments by everyone I come in contact with. You guys are amaze balls. 😄

I started out at the Lumen Center with the Smart Lipo procedure & I keep on coming back. The staff is so welcoming as you walk through the door. Every time I call with questions, I get the answers I need. I felt nervous before going into my procedure and the staff was calming and understanding, which made me very comfortable before, during, and after surgery. I am thrilled with my results. My personal results went from a size X-Large to a Medium with continued diet and exercise. Being diagnosed with PCOS, I have had stubborn fat that 10 miles a day wasn’t taking off. This procedure eliminated that stubborn fat for a clean slate and an easier way to maintain a healthy weight. I bought a package of the Lipo Mino wellness shots to boost my energy and metabolism and it was a great addition. Dr. Kwak artistically created curves that have enhanced my body and I get compliments all of the time. I now use The Lumen Center for all of my botox & wellness injections too. Dr. Kwak has truly changed my life and I cannot thank him enough!

Renuvion J Plasma Recovery

Other more invasive surgical procedures, such as an abdominoplasty, require general anesthesia, can leave unsightly “hip to hip” scars, take longer to heal, and limit your activity. However, recovery time is short after the Renuvion procedure, the side effects are few, and most patients return to normal activities after a long weekend of minimal downtime. Small incisions (3-5 millimeters) are discreetly placed, so scarring is not noticeable. We may recommend wearing a compression garment to reduce swelling. We will provide additional aftercare instructions and monitor your progress to help you heal as quickly as possible.

Renuvion J Plasma Cost

The cost of the J-Plasma skin tightening treatment varies by patient and depends on the areas of the body, the number of treatment areas, and any other procedures being performed, such as a breast or buttocks augmentation.

When considering the cost, it’s important to take into consideration the skills and experience of your team. You want to make sure your surgeon is specially trained in performing the Renuvion j plasma procedure and has the results to show for it. Dr. Andrew Kwak brings his nearly two decades of experience in cosmetic surgery and artistic eye to body contouring. These factors, and other body goals you may have, are considered when determining the cost of the j plasma procedure.

You’ll also want to ask if the pricing is all-inclusive, so there are no surprises. At The Lumen Center, everything is included, from your procedure to a year of follow-up care. Pricing includes the medical team, anesthesia, compression garments (needed during the recovery period), and all of your follow-up care. In addition, we offer a variety of financing options and payment plans to fit your budget.

The J-plasma skin tightening procedure has been life-changing and confidence-restoring for so many of our patients. Many consider it an investment in themselves, and looking and feeling better is priceless.

Are You a Good Candidate for Renuvion J Plasma?

Renuvion is perfect for patients with mild to moderate skin laxity who want to improve their skin quality. The skin tightening treatment avoids an invasive surgical procedure and skin excision. Even if you have larger or multiple areas to address, Renuvion J-Plasma can be effective. It’s important to note that Renuvion is not a treatment for obesity or removing excess skin.
