Renuvion (J-Plasma)

What is Renuvion aka J Plasma with Dr. Shridharani in NYC?

Formerly called J-Plasma, Renuvion is a tool that Dr. Shridharani is using frequently at his New York City practice to supplement treatments like Liposuction and laser/smart lipo to tighten skin and give patients the “wow” factor they are looking for after treatment. Renuvion can also be used as a stand-alone treatment but for patients with decent skin quality and mild to moderate skin tone.


How does Renuvion aka J Plasma with Dr. S in Manhattan work?

Instead of tightening skin from the outside, Renuvion is used via small incisions by applying energy beneath the skin, to contract the skin from the inside out. Actually, it is rare that Dr. Shirdharani is performing body contouring without Renuvion.

What is the Renuvion aka J Plasma procedure with Dr. Shridharani at LUXURGERY like?

The way the procedure works is by delivering helium-based plasma energy to heat essential parts of the skin whereby triggering a lasting tightening effect. Dr. S treats the underside of the dermis (skin) by placing a probe through tiny little incisions (3 millimeters), smaller than even the liposuction incisions… The heat and the plasma cause a shrink wrap effect of the skin. Dr. Shridharani calls Renuvion the closest thing to the holy grail of skin tightening and skin quality improvement.

How big are the incisions for my Renuvion aka J Plasma treatment?

The tiny incisions, that are just a few millimeters wide, deliver a rapid heating followed immediately by cooling only heating the tissue and collagen without diffusing to the surface of the skin. Unlike other heat-based skin tightening treatments that can leave burns, the likelihood of causing a major complication or burn with the Renuvion seems to be less, according to Dr. Shridharani. 

In the operating room after completing the liposuction portion of the procedure, Dr. Shridharani will immediately treat with Renuvion in the same areas that are being treated with liposuction to tighten skin. Patients likely do not have to come in for a second treatment.

When should you expect results with Renuvion after undergoing the treatment with Dr. Shridharani?

Patients will see results within the first few weeks after treatment and as early as 6 months after treatment, an overall more tightened appearance will begin to take shape. However, you will have to wait around 9 months to a year to be treated again for a second treatment if desired.

Where is on the body does Dr. Shridharani use Renuvion aka J Plasma?

The stomach, back, inner and outer thighs, arms, bra fat, the waist, and flanks are common areas that Dr. S treats. Pretty much almost anywhere on the body that Dr. Shridharani performs liposuction or sees skin laxity, he can use this treatment effectively and safely to tighten the skin as a stand alone or in conjunction with the lipocontouring.

Renuvion can also be used on the neck and jawline but Dr. Shirdharani would not go past the jowls with the treatment.

Who are not candidates for Renuvion?

Patients who would not be considered good candidates are patients that need skin removal in procedures like a tummy tuck.

After Dr. Shridharani performs my skin tightening procedure with Renuvion aka J Plasma, is there additional recovery time?

Renuvion does not add any more time to recover and is less invasive than the liposuction procedure itself. Dr. Shridharani says that patients do report a slight soreness after treatment when performed as a stand-alone.
