Renuvion Cosmetic Technology offers unparalleled instant skin tightening, shrinking and rejuvenation results utilizing J-Plasma energy during an in-office, minimally invasive procedure. Dr. Samuels can simultaneously resurface the skin from above while tightening and shrinking the skin’s surface from below. Renuvion is FDA-approved for the face as well.

By combining plasma and radiofrequency technologies to create a dual thermal effect, Renuvion is gently produces dramatic results for a previously unobtainable level of nonsurgical improvement. Results continue to improve over several months as your skin tightens and your body produces more collagen. Renuvion can also be used as an alternative to laser resurfacing for smoothing wrinkles and tightening the skin’s surface appearance.


The Renuvion device uses a gentle radiofrequency waveform to convert inert helium gas into a cold plasma. Helium is used to convert to a plasma with very little energy. The result is an energy unique in its ability to provide tissue heating and cooling almost simultaneously.


When Renuvion is used under the skin, the combination of gas and electric energy creates an effect that both heats and cools the tissue at the same time, delivering an effective tightening result. This process does not harm the surrounding tissue, and makes an excellent option for those who want to tighten the skin of the face, chin, neck, abdomen and other areas.

Frequently Asked Questions

After local anesthesia is administered, Dr. Samuels inserts a slender wand into small incisions of the treatment area. The controlled plasma energy is then applied directly beneath the surface of the skin, heating up to 85 degrees and immediately tightening the skin while stimulating tissue for the continued production of collagen. Within moments of the tissue being heated, the remaining helium gas jet cools the tissue, preventing the tissue from burning.

Renuvion can be done on both the face and the body. Common location choices for a Renuvion skin tightening procedure are:

  • Lower face and neck
  • Upper face, such as under-eyes, eyebrows and forehead
  • Arms
  • Thighs
  • Knees
  • Buttocks
  • Abdomen

Loss of tissue elasticity and tone are some of the first signs of aging. Your skin just isn’t able to bounce back the way it did when you were younger. Gravity takes over resulting in drooping skin. From your neck to your legs, Renuvion can bring back more youthful contours with a quick return to your normal routine.

If you want a procedure with minimal downtime, virtually no scarring and results that restore a more youthful, contoured appearance, Renuvion may be the answer for you.

Renuvion can be used alone or in combination with VASER LIPOSUCTION and/or MICRONEEDLING (PROFOUND, MORPHEUS8, or EXION) OR LASER RESURFACING (CO2RE).  Renuvion can also be used over the skin’s surface as an additional alternative for resurfacing, however the downtime of using Renuvion as a skin resurfacing tool can exceed that of microneedling or fractional laser resurfacing.
