"Couldn't have had a better experience with renuvion with dr. Mizgala - After a lot of weight lost, I needed something to tighten loose skin. Dr. Mizgala and her staff were there every step of the way. My journey started in 2015. Just completed surgery three, Renuvion, formerly called J-Plasma, on my front, side and back thighs. It was done outpatient, I had no issues and even walked around my home a lot for before settling in for the night of the procedure. On..."- M. / RealSelf / Dec 02, 2018
Renuvion is used to help tighten the skin, either alone or in combination with liposuction. It treats skin laxity, moderate skin sag, and wrinkling. It can help tighten the neck and arms and is a great, minimally invasive cosmetic option for many patients. Before recommending Renuvion, Dr. Mizgala will obtain your medical history and perform a physical evaluation to determine whether this treatment will be a great less invasive option for you.
During your consultation, Dr. Mizgala will listen closely to your needs and concerns before deciding how best to achieve your aesthetic goals. Currently, Dr. Mizgala uses Renuvion for skin tightening under the skin, most commonly at the same time as liposuction. Depending on what exactly is being addressed, the treatment can be performed in the office or in the OR for larger areas. General anesthesia or twilight sedation will be used, and in some cases, patients can remain awake. Renuvion will soon be FDA-cleared for dermal ablation on top of the skin as well. J-Plasma (the technology behind Renuvion) is designed to tighten the fibroseptal network deep to the skin's surface. When used to treat the top layer, the plasma energy can focus precisely on brown spots, irregular textures, fine lines, and wrinkles that the patient wishes to have addressed. This technique is most commonly used on the stomach but can also be used to treat areas, such as the back, neck, thighs, breasts, and arms.
While recovery and downtimes following Renuvion J-Plasma treatment can vary, most of our patients feel great within 3 – 5 days of the treatment. A post-surgical garment will be required for 6 – 8 weeks. Dr. Mizgala tells her patients the more active you are in the weeks following treatment, the quicker the swelling and bruising will resolve. Dr. Mizgala's team will provide you with precise aftercare instructions to ensure you heal properly. Unlike other minimally invasive skin tightening treatments that provide minimal improvements, Renuvion delivers immediate results that steadily improve for the first several months after the procedure.
