Neck J Plasma

with DrBfixin in New York City & Long Island

Loose skin is a common concern for many cosmetic surgery patients. Whether it be their primary concern or they are worried their surgery results will leave it behind, patients often see horror stories of inadequately addressed excess skin. A trained and qualified cosmetic surgeon should be able to remove, prevent, and treat extra skin at all stages effectively. However, Dr. Blyer is happy to offer J plasma, another tool for treating and preventing extra skin. Cameo Surgery Center is the top cosmetic surgery clinic in the NYC area. Dr. Scott Blyer and his team provide the best J plasma treatment New York City and Long Island offer.

What Is J Plasma?

J plasma—often branded as Renuvion—is a non-surgical procedure that promotes skin tightening. It uses two known skin tightening factors—helium plasma and radiofrequency energy—underneath the skin. The helium gas and radiofrequency create heat which causes some immediate skin tightening and promotes skin tightening throughout recovery. While it does require a small incision to reach just beneath the skin, it can be performed under a local anesthetic and patients can return to work and their normal routine immediately.

J plasma—while it can be performed on its own—is frequently used to improve the results of other procedures such as tummy tucks and liposuction. This can help patients with skin not expected to fully retract following skin removal see better results. When treating the neck, it may be performed as a skin tightening procedure before skin laxity becomes a major concern. Additionally, neck J plasma can accompany a neck lift for optimal skin tightening results.


J plasma is considered a safe procedure when performed by a qualified cosmetic surgeon. Using J plasma for skin tightening is an off-label use of the device. However, with the development of a new handpiece, the FDA has cleared it for subcutaneous skin tightening. Patients should always ensure their provider is properly qualified to perform the procedure. Overall, in the right patient and when used at the right time, J plasma is a perfectly safe procedure.

Benefits & Risks

Like all medical procedures, Renuvion for the neck has benefits and risks that patients should consider before opting for the treatment. Dr. B will discuss these with you in-depth during a consultation.

Possible benefits of J plasma treatment include:

  • Tighter looking skin
  • Contribute to a younger appearance
  • Improved surgical results
  • Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Lifted look to treated areas
  • Increased collagen production
  • Minimally invasive
  • May help improve skin texture
  • Can help reduce the appearance of acne scars and sun damage
  • More toned physique
  • Small, discreet incisions
  • Avoids unnecessary invasive, surgical procedures
  • Improved self-esteem
  • Natural results
  • Can be used nearly anywhere on the body where extra skin is present
  • Long lasting results
  • Performed by a skilled cosmetic surgeon

The treatment does come with risks. Complications are rare, but patients should understand the full scope of the procedure and its potential downsides. Possible risks or complications of J plasma include:

  • Infection
  • Nerve damage
  • Burns
  • Inadequate results
  • Prolonged side effects like swelling or bruising

Major side effects are unlikely though certain patients may be at a higher risk than others. Therefore, Dr. B evaluates patients individually to determine and mitigate notable risks.

J Plasma vs. Other Neck Tightening Techniques

Skin tightening procedures come in two forms: surface skin procedures and surgery. Both can be effective when used in the right situations (just like J plasma), but every patient and instance is different. One benefit of having so many different skin tightening options is that they can often be combined for optimal results.

J Plasma vs. Surface Skin Tightening

Surface skin tightening procedures include microneedling, radiofrequency treatments, chemical peels, non-ablative laser treatments, and other similar procedures. These procedures can be extremely effective at treating the early signs of aging and mild to moderate skin laxity, especially on the face and neck. However, since J plasma works both on the surface and underneath the skin, it produces a much more dramatic result and can address more severe cases of skin laxity or aging. Patients can usually combine these procedures with J plasma.

J Plasma vs. Surgery

Skin tightening surgeries consist of procedures such as neck lift and facelift. To tighten the skin, these surgeries usually remove a portion of the skin and stretch the remaining skin. This must be done carefully to avoid over or under-correction. These missteps are a common cause of a windswept appearance following facial surgery, so choosing a skilled and experienced surgeon is key to getting good results. Thankfully, J plasma can be combined with skin tightening surgeries to help improve results and promote more natural-looking skin tightening results.

However, surgery can achieve skin tightening when J plasma cannot. When a patient has copious amounts of extra skin on their abdomen—for example—J plasma will likely not be able to fully address it. Performing a tummy tuck first and then J plasma will yield the best results in these cases. This same philosophy can be applied nearly anywhere on the body.

Combining J Plasma With Neck Lift Surgery

When combining J plasma with surgery, Dr. B will generally perform J plasma after the initial surgery. After a neck lift, Dr. Blyer will make use of the same incisions to access the area just below the skin. From there, he will gently position the J plasma handpiece under the skin with the exterior portion hovering just above the skin. Dr. B then will slowly drag the cannula back toward the entry point. This process will repeat until Dr. Blyer has addressed the entire area in all of the necessary treatment areas.

Having J plasma performed during surgery can help patients see better immediate results. After seeing the final results, patients who underwent J plasma with their surgeries tend to see better aesthetic results than those who do not. In some cases, they may see their results faster, but this will depend on several other factors.

Wonder If Neck J Plasma Skin Tightening Works The Best For You?


J plasma results are long lasting. However, like all skin tightening procedures can see the factors that cause skin laxity affect their results over time. For example, aging and the natural reduction in collagen production will affect results as will future sun damage, weight fluctuations, and future procedures.

Major changes in J plasma skin tightening results will usually take years to settle in. As long as patients maintain a healthy lifestyle and follow post-operative instructions, patients can expect to enjoy long lasting skin tightening results.

While J plasma is a non-surgical, minimally invasive procedure, patients may still experience side effects following the treatment. Normally, side effects are mild and resolve within two weeks of the J plasma procedure. They usually do not require prescription medications or medical treatment. Side effects of J plasma may include:

  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • Redness
  • Pain
  • Temporary numbness


J plasma candidates come in two forms: solo J plasma or J plasma with surgery candidates. Patients who would benefit from J plasma by itself generally have only a small amount of extra, sagging skin and good skin quality. For example, a forty-year-old woman seeing the beginning signs of skin sagging and aging, but who is not ready to undergo a full neck lift may qualify for J plasma treatment and see good results without surgery. Patients who are not yet ready for a surgical neck lift or facelift may benefit from a skin tightening procedure such as J plasma which can help firm the look of the skin.

Surgical candidates for a skin removal procedure like a neck lift may also benefit from added neck J plasma. Not only does it help lead to more natural looking results, but it can also improve and promote the skin tightening of older or damaged skin. These types of skin tend not to contract as much following surgery. J plasma can help.

Otherwise, patients should be in overall good health. Depending on the circumstances of the patient’s procedure, there may not be a need for general anesthesia. Thus, patients may not necessarily need the ability to undergo general anesthesia. As long as a patient understands the procedure, has realistic expectations, and can otherwise withstand the treatment, patients are likely good candidates for J plasma in NYC.

Yes and no. While it can improve the appearance of cellulite for some people (and may prevent it following certain procedures), it is not generally considered the most effective solution for cellulite. However, if a patient has realistic expectations and is not undergoing J plasma purely to treat cellulite. 

No, J plasma does not address fat. Patients can undergo liposuction in combination with J plasma to treat both excess fat and skin. Dr. B can discuss what the patient qualifies for during their consultation appointment.

The exact cost of J plasma treatment on Long Island depends on the size and number of areas patients plan to treat. The price often does go down when combining procedures. Patients will receive a customized price quote for their procedures at their consultation appointment. The quoted price includes anesthesia, facility fees, supplies, all planned appointments associated with the procedure, and any post-operative garments.

Patients can also learn more about financing their procedure(s) through Care Credit. If not approved, let us know and we may be able to work with you. Cameo Surgery Center also accepts most major credit cards.
