Renew Your Youth
Are you noticing your skin is losing its youthful tone? Are you starting to notice sagging where there was no sagging before? Dr. Rodman is happy to provide a minimally-invasive solution with Renuvion.
Tone and Tighten
Renuvion is a device used for skin tightening procedures formerly known as J Plasma. This device uses a combination of radio frequency energy and helium plasma to tighten skin. The Renuvion procedure can be performed in an office setting under local anesthesia. Dr. Rodman includes liposuction of the jawline and a “mini lift” to candidates to provide a more defined jawline and to optimize results.
The device delivers a controlled, even application of helium plasma and radio frequency (RF) energy beneath the skin. This powerful combination of energy allows the device to heat and contract the connective tissue below your skin. The helium heats and then cools tissue quickly, minimizing the risk of burns or damage to surrounding tissue. The Renuvion device is able to achieve consistent, significant tightening without an extensive recovery. It is an excellent alternative to more invasive procedures. Your Renuvion treatment will be performed in Dr. Regina Rodman‘s in office procedure room located in Houston, TX
Dr. Rodman is a peer trainer for Renuvion, meaning she teaches other surgeons how to use the device and improve their techniques. She has been appointed by Apyx Medical to give lectures on Renuvion at national and international meetings. She is a leader in teaching other surgeons to use the technology to maximum efficacy and safety.
The way Dr. Rodman performs this procedure is more advanced than using just the Renuvion device alone. The Renuvion Rejuvenation by Rodman generally involves three mini procedures combined into one! This rejuvenation procedure is Dr. Rodman’s signature treatment and is specifically adjusted for each patient. This Renuvion rejuvenation procedure always includes three parts to address the three layers of the neck: 1) liposuction to remove extra fat, 2) Renuvion to tighten the skin, and 3) the mini lift to lift any sagging of the platysma muscle. This combination leads to better results compared to any other minimally invasive procedures performed in the office. The Renuvion helium plasma technology is the most powerful on the market today, making the skin-tightening results superior to similar devices.
"Renuvion is a breakthrough in skin tightening and minimally invasive procedures. After trying many of the other devices on the market, I was amazed at the results of this device. This technology is far more advanced than anything we have seen before. It is the perfect treatment for patients who are starting to get jowling and loose skin on the neck but don’t yet need a facelift. I am certain that this minimally invasive energy device is the future of plastic surgery."
The Best Results Without a Scalpel
This procedure is a good option for patients who experience mild to moderate skin laxity and who do not want large scars, incisions, or extended downtime. It is great for people who are starting to experience loose skin but are not yet ready for a full facelift. Not everyone is a candidate for the Renuvion procedure. Dr. Rodman consults with each patient and customizes a treatment plan to help patients reach their aesthetic goals. The ideal candidate would be between ages 30-50 with mild to moderate skin laxity. The ideal candidate would not have a large amount of excess skin, as this is best treated with skin removal as done in a facelift. During your one-on-one consultation, Dr. Rodman will discuss in detail all your options for treatment and the risks and benefits of each. Renuvion is a good option for those patients wanting facial rejuvenation but not at the point of needing a full facelift.

Rejuvenate Right Now
On the day of the procedure, patients should be prepared to be in the office for roughly 2 to 2.5 hours. During this time, the patient will be prepped, sign surgical consents, and have the opportunity to ask any questions or address any concerns that may not have been asked during the consultation. The patient should also have transportation arrangements in place to and from the procedure. A mild oral sedative is given to patients to help them relax during the procedure, which affects their ability to drive. We also have Nitronox (laughing gas) available for patients should they need it. The procedure itself takes about 1-1.5 hours.
Confidence in Beauty
As mentioned previously, Renuvion is a less invasive surgical option with less downtime. Patients typically experience tightness and soreness the first few days following surgery. This procedure is often done on Fridays to allow the patient the weekend to recover. Over the 1st week, patients will start to feel better with each passing day. Most patients are able to switch to Tylenol only after the first-day post-procedure. There may be some mild swelling and residual bruising. We provide a head wrap applied after the procedure, and request patients wear this at least 23 hours each day over the first week. This helps prevent fluid accumulation and suppresses swelling.
Results will vary from person to person, but generally, results last for years. Patients will see results within a week, but maximum results are seen six to nine months after treatment. The Rejuvenation with Renuvion is a long-term solution, and the effect will remain for years. The effect will remain, but as with all procedures, every patient will continue to age, and the effect may be less noticeable with time.
Yes! Renuvion can be combined with other procedures to help you achieve the results you want. As described, Renuvion is frequently combined with liposuction and a mini lift in the office to help produce the best results possible. Renuvion can also be added to genioplasty and Vline surgery to help correct any loose skin after the removal of bone from the jaw and chin. It can also be combined with a browlift, rhinoplasty, or other facial rejuvenation procedures. Renuvion is also a key component of the Redefine by Rodman procedure. Schedule a consultation today and ask us more about what other procedures Renuvion can enhance.
An alternative procedure would be a rhytidectomy, also known as a facelift. A facelift is performed in a hospital setting with general anesthesia and typically requires an overnight stay. The recovery is longer, and this procedure is more invasive. Renuvion can provide 65-70% of the results without the downtime of a facelift for patients with moderate skin laxity and up to 100% results for patients with mild skin laxity. Renuvion does not require general anesthesia, can be performed in an office setting, has less recovery time, is minimally invasive, and has a lesser risk of complications.
The price range for this varies based on the specific needs of each patient, and if any additional procedures are being added at the same time. Dr. Rodman, however, does bundle liposuction and the mini lift to the procedure cost. Typically this is an additional cost in most other facilities or offices. She believes that liposuction and the mini lift, done in conjunction with Renuvion, provide better results than just Renuvion as a standalone procedure. After your consultation, each patient will meet with our coordinator to discuss your individualized quote and schedule availability.
No. Renuvion tightens your skin but does not remove fat. Many patients choose to have Renuvion at the same time as liposuction in order to remove submental fat under the chin and tighten the skin.
