What is Renuvion J-Plasma®?
You are likely familiar with the word “plasma”. Plasma is a form of matter created by energizing gas to the point of ionization, i.e. its atoms and molecules separate into negatively charged electrons and positively charged ions. Renuvion J-Plasma® is formed by passing inert helium gas through a device, energizing the gas into a plasma stream which can be used for medical aesthetic purposes. First utilized as a means of soft tissue coagulation during surgery with minimal impact to surrounding tissue, this technology is now being recognized for its benefits in facial rejuvenation procedures.
Dr. Barr utilizes Renuvion J-Plasma® Transformational Helium Plasma technology to create skin tightening and cellular rejuvenation for overall remarkable facial rejuvenation. Renuvion J-Plasma technology has the ability to ablate tissue at a low, controlled temperature with minimal disruption to the surrounding tissue, which hastens the recovery time associated with traditional non-fractional ablative C02 laser treatments.
With the highly precise nature of Renuvion J-Plasma technology, patients have the option of treating either their full face, or targeting specific trouble spots, such as their eyes or mouth area. Renuvion J-Plasma Skin Rejuvenation can be performed in addition to several of our cosmetic procedures to create superior results.
