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.
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 is released to create a precise steam of energy (plasma). This energy generates enough heat to contract the skin while helium gas simultaneously cools the treatment area. This combination of energy contracts the tissues just under the skin which tightens it while simultaneously 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 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 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.
