At birth, babies have an ample supply of collagen and elastin that makes skin soft, smooth, healthy, and resilient. As we age, this reserve of nutrients begins to decline in number and the skin on our face and body decreases in elasticity. The loss of elasticity and the effect of gravity lead to wrinkles, lines, and sagging skin. If you have attempted over-the-counter products, lifestyle changes, and exercise without seeing the improvement you desire, nonsurgical skin tightening at Le Contour Aesthetic Surgery in Orlando, FL may be for you. Using Renuvion® J-Plasma® technology, our nonsurgical skin tightening procedure stimulates the production of elastin and collagen beneath the skin so you can have firmer, healthier skin. During the initial consultation, plastic surgeon Dr. F. Jorge Gonzalez will explain the process of nonsurgical skin tightening to patients who desire firmer skin on their face, hands, or body without the expense and recovery time associated with surgical lift procedures. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Gonzalez at Le Contour Aesthetic Surgery to learn more.


Nonsurgical skin tightening with Renuvion J-Plasma could be right for you if you desire real, lasting results but do not wish to undergo cosmetic surgery. Dr. Gonzalez can use our advanced technology to treat areas, including the face, neck, stomach, thighs, and arms. Ideal patients for Renuvion nonsurgical skin tightening are adults in good overall health. You should be at or near your goal weight so that your results are not compromised by weight fluctuation post-procedure. Skin that is mildly to moderately lax is most likely to respond to treatment.


Before your nonsurgical skin tightening procedure begins, the area(s) that will be treated will be prepped by eliminating any makeup, dirt, or oil from the surface of your skin. Anesthesia options will be discussed, decided upon, and given before your procedure. After your skin is prepared and you are comfortable, the handpiece that matches your needs (as determined by Dr. Gonzalez) will be used to apply the technology to the treatment area. The energy emitted prompts the body’s natural healing properties to produce collagen and elastin, which firms and tightens the skin. A session may take around 30 – 90 minutes, depending on the size and number of areas treated. Once the procedure is complete, you will be able to leave and resume your regular routine.


Following your skin tightening appointment, the treated areas can be mildly inflamed, numb, or red. This is normal and will resolve on its own in several days. During your consultation, Dr. Gonzalez will go over methods to care for the treated skin after your session, including keeping the skin moisturized and protected from sun damage. In some cases, results can be seen immediately after the procedure. But since the collagen and elastin stimulation and growth is a gradual process, you may not see the final results of the treatment for two or more months after the procedure. Your results should last a long time and enhance the general appearance and health of your skin.


How much does it cost?

The cost of your Renuvion J-Plasma treatment will be determined after a consultation to discuss your aesthetic goals. We will assess the size and location of the treatment area(s), estimate the length of time the procedure will take and the type of anesthesia that will be required. After your treatment plan has been created, we will discuss cost and payment methods with you.

How many sessions will I need?

Renuvion J-Plasma is such an effective treatment that many patients attain their goal aesthetic in just one treatment. However, if Dr. Gonzalez feels the best results could be achieved with more than one session, we will plan accordingly. Remember that our goal is to help you reach your ultimate aesthetic goals, and your treatment plan will be created accordingly.

What is the recovery like?

If subdermal (beneath the skin) treatment is required to achieve optimal results, you may need to rest at home for a couple of days before returning to work. Minor bruising, redness, and swelling could occur, but most patients find it is tolerable with over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medicine, such as Tylenol or Motrin.


If your goal is to firm and tighten your skin without going under the knife, schedule an appointment with Dr. F. Jorge Gonzalez to learn more about nonsurgical skin tightening. An effective, nonsurgical treatment that can help rejuvenate the health and tone of your skin, Renuvion J-Plasma can help you fight back when you begin to notice the effects of aging.
