J-Plasma is a revolutionary procedure for skin tightening. Also known as J Plasty, this technique uses helium gas and radiofrequency energy to create cold helium plasma that is used to treat the underside of the skin resulting in reduced laxity, tightening and shrinkage.
J-Plasma body contouring is ideal for those with mild to moderate loose skin from age, weight loss or pregnancy. It is also helpful for those who have had non-surgical body contouring or fat reduction treatments but were disappointed with their results. It has been shown to aesthetically decrease the look of stretch marks and, in some cases, it can help even out areas with cellulite for a more smooth skin appearance.
Cold plasma is created when helium gas is energized by radiofrequency energy and delivered through the J-Plasma device. Helium gas is very stable thereby ensuring flexible, precise and safe delivery. Cold plasma is cooler than laser energy making J-Plasma a safer procedure with less risk and damage to the tissue and affording patients a quick recovery. The level of improvement and rejuvenation from cold plasma energy is unrivaled in current technologies. No laser, ultrasound or radiofrequency treatment is capable of safely tightening and firming skin to this level.
J-Plasma can be performed by itself or in combination with liposuction. Through small, concealed incisions placed in the same locations used for traditional liposuction, a specialized instrument is passed beneath the skin. Once the device is in place, pro helium gas and radiofrequency are released to create a precise stream of energy (plasma). This energy generates controlled heat to provide for shrinkage and tightening of the skin from the inside while helium gas simultaneously cools the treatment area thereby protecting the outside surface of the skin.
The results are largely permanent though your skin will continue to age naturally but it should not reach the point of laxity that it had before treatment.
J-Plasma represents another therapeutic option to further rejuvenate the neck and many areas of the body, including the arms, abdominal region, inner thighs and knees, without the need for lengthy incisions and prolonged recovery.
