Loose skin of the body is a common and frustrating problem, especially since it often results from milestone events like weight loss or pregnancy. Aging may also contribute to unwanted laxity, as loss of collagen diminishes the skin’s elastic nature and hinders its ability to strongly adhere to the underlying structures. Fortunately, advances in cosmetic dermatology have led to the invention of energy-based therapies that can minimize skin looseness, revealing the natural contours of your body.

Dr. Hooman Khorasani is pleased to offer skin tightening with BodyTite and Renuvion® (J-Plasma). These revolutionary devices harnesses the power of plasma energy to substantially improve skin laxity with minimal risks, scarring, or downtime. This is in stark contrast to the surgical removal of excess skin, as this highly invasive procedure incurs substantial scarring, a prolonged recovery, and a slew of unwanted complications.

Over the course of his decade-long career, Dr. Khorasani has helped improve the skin’s appearance for thousands of patients of all ages and complexion types. Always pursuing the best possible treatment options for his patients, Dr. Khorasani consistently invests in the latest technology and mentors other professionals who have sought him out for his expertise in this area. As such, Dr. Khorasani will be able to provide you with a tailored therapy plan that addresses your individual needs and employs the most advanced, effective medical devices.

What is BodyTite?

We all strive to look and feel our best. Diet and exercise are at the cornerstones of staying fit, but sometimes that is not sufficient. Now you have the answer: BodyTite.

With BodyTite, you can reduce fat without having to worry about sagging or wrinkly skin.  Patients can now achieve surgical-like results with no large incisional scars, less downtime and long lasting, beautiful results.

BodyTite is a great solution for individuals who are looking to reduce fat without the saggy, wrinkly skin. It also helps improve skin laxity after weight loss or due to aging.  BodyTite is a minimally invasive procedure that shapes, contracts and lifts without the scalpel or scar. BodyTite uses RFAL (Radio-Frequency Assisted Lipolysis) technology that addresses some of the shortcomings associated with traditional liposuction or surgical body lifts.

What is a J-Plasma skin tightening treatment?

Renuvion (J-Plasma) is a non-surgical skin tightening device that utilizes radiofrequency energy to produce helium-derived plasma in order to help remodel the skin. When administered beneath the skin’s surface (subdermally), the precise heat from the plasma serves to immediately contract the skin and initiate long-term collagen synthesis. This results in smoother, firmer skin quality and skin that adheres more closely to the underlying fascia. This heating process is analogous to traditional laser technology, such as laser lipo, that is used subdermally to heat the dermis and build collagen. The main benefit of plasma energy over laser use is the narrow field of energy that is produced by plasma. This newer technology results in more precise heating, less collateral damage to the surrounding tissue and less adverse side effects. The production of new, healthy collagen serves to maintain the immediate skin tightening effects for several years following treatment.

Please note that Renuvion (J-Plasma) may also be applied to the superficial skin to mildy enhance elasticity while simultaneously erasing signs of aging like discoloration, fine lines, and deep wrinkles. Please visit our Laser Skin Resurfacing page to determine if  you are a good candidate for facial plasma resurfacing.

What areas can be treated with a J-Plasma skin tightening treatment?

The energy emitted from this device can be applied nearly anywhere on the body to promote instantaneous skin tightening. Commonly treated bodily locations include the arms, breasts, abdomen, thighs, buttocks, and knees; however, Dr. Khorasani will personalize your treatment to ensure effective targeting of the sites most bothersome to you. This powerful device is also useful in addressing laxity of the face and neck. Please visit our Skin Tightening page to ascertain if Renuvion (J-Plasma) can help tighten the skin covering some of your most prominent features.

What are the benefits of a J-Plasma skin tightening treatment?

This cutting-edge therapy visibly improves skin laxity, uncovering your natural curves and allowing them to steal the show. As a minimally-invasive treatment, the skin is spared from enduring large, obtrusive surgical cuts. This allows for tightened skin that looks and feels as natural as possible. Aside from its efficacy, patients also love Renuvion (J-Plasma) treatments because usually only one session is required and the associated recovery period is brief when used subdermally. For those who are diligent in maintaining a stable weight, the skin tightening benefits of Renuvion (J-Plasma) can be enjoyed for multiple years following treatment.

The multitude of benefits associated with Renuvion (J-Plasma) are even more substantial when compared to the traditional surgical removal of excess skin. Skin removal surgery is a highly invasive procedure requiring the use of an operating room, exposing you to additional financial costs and the risks of general anesthesia. Conversely, Renuvion (J-Plasma) treatments are performed in an outpatient setting using local injections of a numbing solution coupled with oral medications. Furthermore, surgical skin removal treatments are associated with prominent scarring, extensive downtime, and an array of serious complications. Renuvion (J-Plasma) has a proven track-record of efficacy and safety, allowing patients to achieve their ideal silhouette with minimal interruption to their busy lives.
