What would you give to reverse the hands of time?

Introducing Renuvion® This is truly a game changer!

Using Renuvion, there are two minimally invasive approaches that allow us at the Enhanced Image Center in Cleveland to turn back the clock for you.  Renuvion is an innovative discovery by Apyx Medical Corporation that provides the most safe and precise tool for skin tightening—whether it is being used on the skin surface or under the skin.  In fact, various types of surgeons have been using J-Plasma, Renuvion’s original name, to perform delicate surgeries near vital organs with exacting precision and virtually no heat damage to surrounding tissue.

In truth, the technology is not that new. Rather, the precision offered by the device created a “new use” in plastic surgery because it allows the surgeon to significantly tighten skin by performing J-Plazty™ and not cutting and removing skin!

Minimally invasive face lift

J-Plazty™, a technique originally developed by Dr .Jack Zamora in Colorado, is nothing like the traditional face lift.
The J-Plazty™ face lifting procedure is performed using J-Plasma® helium energy, and a proprietary technique to tighten the soft tissues below the skin which dramatically rejuvenates the upper and lower face.

Renuvion is so precise that it can actually ablate skin on a cellular level, even when used underneath the skin. As we often say, “Everyone wants the results of a face lift, but no one wants to go through the downtime of a face lift.” Well, fear no more.

Renuvion is the first of its kind, non laser device, that assists with rejuvenating the face without having to undergo the traditional facelift. The results are astonishing with patients looking up to 10 years younger, for only a fraction of the cost, risk and downtime of the traditional facelift.

Does Renuvion skin tightening work?

Yes! Renuvion, when used underneath the skin or on top of the skin, does what other lasers don’t; it significantly tightens the skin, getting rid of wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin. It’s even safe enough to use under and above the eyes! I am literally amazed at the results I see with Renuvion.

Does it hurt?

A combination of topical numbing cream, a local anesthetic and sedation is used so that you will not have pain during the procedure.  Afterwards, expect to be sore. One patient described his postoperative experience (after a subdermal procedure to tighten loose skin in the stomach region) not as pain, but rather as discomfort. He said it felt like he had worked out a little too hard and done too many crunches.  Another patient reported having no pain at all and only minimal discomfort.

What’s the downtime?

The J-Plazty™ procedure requires only 3-7 days of downtime depending on the area of the body.

How much does Renuvion treatment cost?

This just might be the best part! We understand that any time a patient considers having plastic surgery, cost is a concern. Enhanced Image Center is the first in the greater Cleveland area to offer this innovative treatment. Even so, the cost is considerably lower because it is performed in the office. The cost of the procedure will be determined at the time of your consultation since it will be tailored specifically to treat your concerns.
The Enhanced Image Center offers complimentary Renuvion consultations.

What body areas can be treated? —More great news!

It can be used almost anywhere! Renuvion can be used most anywhere on the body that has loose or sagging skin, and again scarless!!! In the past, sagging skin had to be removed in order to significantly tighten it, and removing skin meant big scars. In the past, getting rid of sagging or loose skin was a trade-off because patients were left with fairly large scars. In recent years, some devices have come to market claiming skin tightening, but the results are much less impressive than with Renuvion. It provides such significant skin tightening that it can be used for patients with major weight loss, sagging on the backside of arms, for moms with sagging skin on the tummy, sagging skin above the knees, and really just about anywhere.

In fact, I can even perform a minimally invasive tummy tuck for some patients using Renuvion. This is a huge breakthrough!  The J-Plazty™ body tummy tuck alternative is for patients with reasonable muscle tone and mild to moderate excess fat, whose main complaint is excess inelastic skin of the abdomen.

The procedure includes liposculpting for fat reduction, and then delivery of the plasma form of helium below the skin using the J-Plasma device resulting in immediate and dramatic skin tightening. With this combination, we have seen up to 60% reduction in patient’s “muffin top” (overhanging skin of the lower abdomen). Using Renuvion either alone or in combination with liposuction, can be particularly effective following significant weight loss.

Until Renuvion, the only treatment for excess skin was surgical removal in the form of a tummy tuck abdominoplasty), brachiplasty for arms, thighplasty for legs/knees which required fairly large scars.  With Renuvion skin tightening, the size of the incisions are typically 5 mm each, in discrete locations. As a result, it is scarless with a shorter recovery and less risk and less cost than traditional surgical procedures.
