Renuvion in Omaha, Nebraska
Loose, saggy skin is an issue that can make a person look and feel much older than they are. Saggy skin in the face and neck can intensify the effects of growing older, while loose skin can cover attractive and youthful contours. Fortunately, new minimally-invasive skin treatments like Renuvion improve the contours of the face, neck, and all-over body tightening and skin rejuvenation.
About Renuvion Skin Tightening
In the past, the only reliable method of skin tightening was to perform invasive plastic surgery. Through advancements in cosmetic technology, there is now a state-of-the-art treatment available that smooths and tightens unwanted skin: Renuvion.
Renuvion is a minimally-invasive, skin-tightening treatment that restores elasticity and firmness to the skin.
How does Renuvion Work?
Renuvion®/J-Plasma works is by delivering a combination of helium-plasma and RF energy, beneath the skin, triggering a tightening effect that has been described as, “Shrinkwrap for your skin.” In addition to Liposuction procedures, Renuvion delivers impressive results when paired with Cellulaze for cellulite treatment, or Profound for skin tightening of the face and neck.
To begin a Renuvion treatment the doctor makes a small incision in the treatment area, then the tip of the wand delivers heat in the form of radiofrequency energy to the fat, collagen, and tissues below the skin. The heat tightens the surrounding tissues, which helps compress and condense the fat. The cold helium then produces plasma, which is a type of gas that provides increased energy. Through the Renuvion device, the plastic surgeon can penetrate further into the skin without burning the treatment area.
In this procedure, thermal injuries are used in the treatment area to prompt the body’s natural healing process. The patient’s safety during the treatment is assured through the cooled plasma gas that regulates the temperature below the skin. This is attained by allowing the helium gas to dissipate below the skin, causing the tip of the device, treatment area, and surrounding tissue to remain temperature-controlled.
Renuvion skin tightening treatment or JPlasma is different from other types of skin tightening procedures because it does not require cutting or trimming of the skin or fat. Renuvion uses a different type of thermal energy, instead.
Lasers are usually used for skin resurfacing in the topper layers of tissues, while ultrasound is used to penetrate the deeper tissues.
Can Renuvion Replace a Tummy Tuck?
First, nothing can be certain without a consultation. Imagen consultations are free and can be initiated virtually via text 402-509-8473, or through our virtual consultation link. Otherwise, you can schedule an in-person appointment with one of our board-certified cosmetic surgeons. During your consultation, the doctor will conduct a thorough exam and present you with the best options for you – Even if it means getting a tummy tuck somewhere else.
A tummy tuck is an invasive procedure, most commonly done under general anesthesia. Downtime can vary, but most patients can expect to be home from work for at least 2 weeks after a tummy tuck.
Renuvion is a great option for anyone with mild skin laxity from pregnancy, aging or weight loss, or anyone who wants to avoid a tummy tuck or skin-removal surgery like an arm, thigh or neck lift.

Renuvion Treatment Areas
Because of its efficacy, Renuvion/JPlasma can be performed on almost any part of the body from the face, neck, and body that suffer from poor skin laxity. These areas usually include the jowls, lower face, neck, abdomen, upper arms, butt legs, inner/outer things, and knees.
For patients that require only mild to moderate improvement in sagging skin, Renuvion can replace plastic surgeries like a facelift and neck lift, tummy tuck, or arm and thigh lift.
