Skin laxity is the result of a number of factors including genetics, pregnancy or weight loss, or post-menopausal hormonally-induced changes to one’s muscle mass and skin quality. Once present, there is very simply nothing one can do with skin excess, there are no diets or exercise regimes that can shrink your skin. Historically there were two options: live with it or excise it.
However, with the advent of J Plasma®/Renuvion® helium plasma technology, performed in much the same way as liposuction, skin tightening is possible in a large number of patients and in many areas of the body. J Plasma®/Renuvion® tightens the connections between the skin and muscle drawing the skin toward the underlying muscle.
Like all other surgeries, it is not what you do but who does it that matters.
Dr. Kornstein has 25 years’ experience in body anatomy, aging, and surgery and was the pioneer in J Plasma®/Renuvion® body skin tightening in 2015. Dr. Kornstein continues to work intimately with the company to elucidate the science behind the technology and optimize its clinical efficacy.
