If you are looking to lift and improve your body’s skin tone with smoother, tighter skin but are not a surgery candidate or do not wish to have surgery, then Plus is the perfect treatment for you. Plus is radio-frequency (RF energy) technology that provides optimal tissue contraction into the deep layers of the skin.
— Dr. Mark Anton, Newport Beach Plastic Surgeon
RF treatments like Plus Body are relative newcomers to the aesthetic practice of treating aging skin, but it is quickly becoming a favorite amongst patients because it changes the appearance of loose, sun-damaged, and crêpe skin. RF works by heating the dermis and subcutaneous tissue beneath the epidermis (top layer of skin).
This technology works to stimulate the formation of new collagen and elastin, for a substantial and long-lasting improvement in skin elasticity. Not all RF devices are created equally. The two most critical components to the effectiveness of RF energy are uniform heat delivered over a period of time. If you have tried RF in the past, or if you have heard about it from your friends, there are very mixed reviews as to how effective it is for tightening the skin.
Many of the earlier RF monopolar devices offered a less predictable outcome because they were not able to heat the dermis to a consistent temperature over a long enough period of time without causing pain, risk of burns, or other adverse effects. Plus Body is cutting edge, bi-polar technology that utilizes real-time temperature-monitoring mechanisms, assessed by measuring tissue impedance, temperature, and epidermal contact throughout the treatment. This allows the device to continuously monitor the targeted tissue, and adjust the delivery of the RF energy to create a uniform heating exposure. The device is then able to maintain this constant uniform heating exposure for prolonged periods of time.

Any skin type on the Fitzpatrick Scale presenting with skin laxity, or dull skin that has lost its luster are the candidate for Plus Treatment. Results vary depending on the degree of skin laxity. For those seeking optimal results without surgery, other procedures may be recommended in conjunction to Plus.
Before treatment patients are advised to drink plenty of water to help plump the skin and ready it for receiving the higher temperatures needed for optimal results.
A light cleansing of the skin prepares it for treatment. No numbing cream or other pain relievers are necessary. Treated area(s) will feel a deep, warm massage that most patients experience as relaxing. Our Newport Beach Plus Body patients report no discomfort during the 30-minute treatment process. Heat can be adjusted based on tolerability.
There will be a subtle improvement in skin laxity immediately following the first treatment. It is important to complete all six Plus Rejuvenate treatments in the recommended time frame for optimal and longest-lasting results. After the six-week treatment period, the skin will be noticeably more firm, smoother, and more radiant. Having smoother, tauter, more radiant looking skin significantly reduces signs of aging, so skin looks and behaves younger and more vibrant.
After completing your series of treatments, your skin will be noticeably smoother, more taut, and healthier looking. The key to maintaining the great, non-surgical results you get with the Plus Rejuvenation package is limiting sun exposure and protecting your skin with a physical sunblock and purchasing the Plus Maintenance package. With the proper sun protection, Plus Body is suitable for all people looking to maintain a youthful appearance.
The treated area is pink to slightly red immediately following treatment but typically subsides within an hour.
Sunscreen and makeup can be applied immediately following the procedure. Sunscreen is advised at all times when skin is exposed to sunlight, including indirect sunlight such as driving.
