Does anyone have experience with a Renuvion neck lift?

The skin on my neck is starting to hang down and I'm interested in knowing more about non-invasive neck lift procedures. I came across a new device called Renuvion and was wondering if anyone has had this procedure and could share their experience? Thanks.

I had a J Plasma procedure, which is now known as Renuvion, done last year by Dr. Michael Lin. I am a 64 year old woman and had the procedure done to tighten and smooth out my skin. The procedure works and did indeed tighten and smooth out my face and neck. There is a significant amount of downtime though. I did not feel comfortable leaving my house for 2 weeks. I had patches of brown, red and pink skin and it took a while for my complexion to clear up. I also had to apply ointment to my face everyday and for that reason decided to stay home. I will say that the procedure was not at all painful. I did experience some itchy skin on days 4-7 after my treatment and my skin was tight for the first 3 weeks. My skin is more youthful looking now and my friends tell me I look like I've reversed the hands of time by 15 years. I would do the procedure again in a heartbeat, but would not recommend it if you can not take at least 3 weeks off from work. I'd be happy to answer any other questions you have. 

I'm interested in learning more about this treatment too. I saw a video on Youtube of a doctor saying this procedure used to be called J-Plasma, but was rebranded as Renuvion because patients thought that it involved spreading blood plasma over a patient's neck and face. He further explained that 'plasma is the fourth state of matter, which is gas and Renuvion uses a beam of ionized helium to resurface skin.' The doctor in the video said it's amazing with skin contraction and tightening skin on the neck, belly and arms. I'm really interested in learning more about this procedure.
