Age, sun damage, and lifestyle choices all affect the quality and presentation of your skin. Skin begins to sag, loosen, and stretch, leaving you with an aged, “dull” appearance instead of a youthful glow. At Careaga Plastic Surgery, we offer J-Plasma® for skin tightening on the body, neck, and face. J-Plasma® uniquely combines helium plasma with radiofrequency energy to tighten skin and promote cellular rejuvenation while safely preventing additional tissue trauma.
Benefits of J-Plasma® Skin Tightening
- Tightens delicate, hard-to-treat areas on the face, neck, and body
- Reduces fine lines around the eyes, lips, and cheeks
- Minimally invasive body contouring procedure
- Virtually no visible incisions
- Minimal to no scarring
- Downtime is a few days
- Provides natural, instant results
Candidates for the J-Plasma® skin tightening procedure should be in good general health and have realistic expectations of their results. Patients who have moderate to severe loose skin should consider other alternatives such as abdominoplasty.
J-Plasma® can be performed under local or general anesthesia to ensure that you have a painless process. A few small incisions will be made with the J-Plasma® handpiece before the plasma energy is applied to the tissues underneath the skin for precise tightening and rejuvenation. J-Plasma® can be performed for facial and neck rejuvenation. Patients can also undergo this skin tightening treatment on the abdomen, and other body parts, in as little as 45 minutes while noticing immediate results.
J-Plasma® is an outpatient procedure. Following your treatment, you may experience some redness and irritation. A compression garment is required to be worn for the first three days. Dr. Careaga will discuss what to expect with your recovery during your consultation.
As J-Plasma® is not a laser and does not heat to the same temperature as skin resurfacing lasers, it allows for a quicker and less painful recovery while doubling the results. Skin will be noticeably firmer and more youthful immediately after the procedure. Your skin will continue to improve as your cells naturally rejuvenate.
