Are you looking for a way to achieve younger-looking skin? Do you want to get rid of wrinkles, acne scars, and spots caused by sun damage, stress, and aging? If you are looking for skin rejuvenation procedures, chances are you’ve come across the term, “J-Plasma” – a service that we offer at Alliance Cosmetic Center.
What is J-Plasma?
J-Plasma is a relatively new technology that utilizes cool, ionized helium gas to tighten up loose skin. It is also known as J-Plasty or J-Plazty treatments.
How does it work?
J-Plasma works in two ways:
J-Plasma as a resurfacing procedure. It can be used for facial rejuvenation (similar to procedures such as chemical peels, lasers, etc.). The device is used over the skin. Typically, it takes two separate passes to allow a tighter skin to form.
J-Plasma as a subdermal tightening procedure utilizes cold helium ionized gas and RF to tighten loose skin. The device has a small cannula which is inserted under the skin (i.e. the neck or any place in the body) with small incisions. Through this cannula, a combination of helium gas and RF will go to the skin, firming it up almost immediately.
Who can benefit from J-Plasma?
Individuals with mild to moderate damaged and loose skin caused by aging, sun damage, and other factors are ideal candidates for J-Plasma. It is perfect for anyone who is looking for an alternative to traditional skin lift procedures.
J-Plasma can be used anywhere on the body including the neck, arms, abdomen, thighs, and legs.
What are the side effects? How long is the recovery time?
J-Plasma is a relatively fast procedure that usually lasts for up to 1 to 2 hours with a quick recovery time. It is said to be moderately pain-free. However, please note that local anesthesia will be used. Some patients may experience mild discomfort during and after the procedure (once the anesthesia wears off). Patients may experience some side effects associated with local anesthesia such as swelling, nausea, and redness.
Recovery time for the procedure can differ from one patient to another. This will depend on the extent of your J-Plasma treatment.
Note: J-Plasma is not a surgical procedure; however, it may still come with side effects. It is important for you to enter any procedure with a full understanding of what you should expect.
