Skin laxity is either something we are genetically prone to develop, can be a consequence of pregnancy or weight loss, or occur post-menopausally when one’s muscle mass and skin quality naturally diminish. 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, since the advent of J Plasma®/Renuvion® helium plasma technology, done 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 against 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® 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.
