Not everyone wants surgery to tighten and rejuvenate skin. J-Plasma is a minimally invasive treatment option that can contract collagen and produce long-term results.
J-Plasma is an advanced energy device from Renuvion® that combines the properties of cold helium plasma with radiofrequency (RF) energy. It works by emitting helium plasma energy through tiny incisions in the treatment area. The device begins with helium gas and then emits radiofrequency energy to ionize it. This turns the helium into a cold helium plasma.
When the plasma makes contact with the layers beneath the surface of your skin, it causes the tissues to instantly tighten. It also encourages the production of fresh collagen, which improves your skin quality, tightness, and contours over time.
J-Plasma can be performed on virtually any area of the body, including:
- Upper arms
- Back and bra area
- Pelvic region
J-Plasma can easily be combined with other minimally-invasive procedures like liposuction.
J-Plasma can be a great option for patients who have mild to moderate skin laxity but don’t want to undergo a body contouring surgery. If you have more severe skin laxity, you may need to consider surgical options. In order to be considered a good candidate for J-Plasma, you should be in overall good health and at a healthy and stable weight. Weight fluctuations can impact your results, so you should have good habits in place.
J-Plasma can be performed using a local anesthetic. To begin, tiny incisions are made within the natural contours of your skin to prevent any visible scarring. Then, the device is inserted, and treatment is administered. Once your results are achieved, your incisions will be dressed, and you can return home.
J-Plasma comes with very little recovery time. Most patients can return to office-based work within a few days, although this can depend on the extensiveness of your treatment and whether you combine it with other procedures. You’ll be given detailed instructions on how to care for your incision sites. It’s normal to have very minor swelling and tenderness but this can easily be managed with over-the-counter medications. Although you’ll see results immediately after your procedure, it can take a few months before your final results emerge. J-Plasma can produce long-term results as long as you practice good skincare and live a healthy, active lifestyle.
