If you’re discouraged by flab or sagging skin in places such as your chin, neck, or face, J-Plasma® skin tightening may be an option. Like many skin tightening procedures, J-Plasma® is non-surgical and uses radiofrequency to tone the skin. This technique is different in the way it uses radiofrequency to energize cold helium plasma. The plasma makes this technique exceptionally precise and significantly diminishes trauma to the tissue.
Who is a Candidate?
A candidate for J-Plasma® skin tightening is a person in good overall health with mildly or moderately sagging skin that persists no matter how hard they exercise. During the initial consultation, the doctor will ask the patient what they want from their J-Plasma® session and answer their questions. They’ll tell the patient to give up anticoagulants and smoking before the treatment.
A session is performed in the doctor’s office; treatment usually takes less than 45 minutes. Though the treatment is widely considered painless, local anesthesia may be provided for extra comfort. A special device is applied directly to the skin, allowing the helium plasma to instantly tighten the skin and make it more supple at the same time. Due to the technological configuration, the surrounding tissues remain unaffected by the treatment.
The patient can go home soon after their treatment. They will be contacted the next day by the medical staff to make sure that all is well. J-Plasma® is also unlike other skin tightening procedures in that the patient only needs one session to see optimal results. Most patients rest at home for a few days before they go back to work, which is why it’s a good idea to have the J-Plasma® treatment at the start of the weekend. It’s possible to return to work or school that Monday if they have the procedure on Friday. The length of the patient’s recovery depends on how extensive the J-Plasma® treatment was.
