J-PLASMA: THE LATEST TECHNOLOGY IN SKIN TIGHTENING
J-plasma is the most advanced device to tighten the skin of the face, neck and body. The technology integrates helium gas with radio-frequency energy to create cold helium plasma which effectively tightens and rejuvenates the skin.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF J-PLASMA?
J-plasma can be done on the face, neck and other parts of the body that has loose skin. It can be used alone or in combination with VASER liposuction to maximize results. In short, VASER liposuction gives contour to the body using ultrasonic vibration technology while the J-plasma tightens the skin afterwards. Also, there is a lower risk of damage to the surrounding tissues due to the precise nature of the RF (radio-frequency) energy emitted from the J-plasma machine. Lastly, it involves minimal downtime compared to other surgical procedures.
WHO CAN BE A CANDIDATE FOR J-PLASMA?
J-plasma is ideal for patients who have mild to moderate loose skin and are looking for a minimally-invasive procedure with effective results.
HOW IS J-PLASMA DONE AND HOW DOES HELIUM WORK IN TIGHTENING THE SKIN?
J-plasma is done under sedation which means that patients are in deep sleep and pain-free. Much like the liposuction done under sedation, patients undergoing J-plasma procedure can expect to go home on the same day as the treatment day.
The procedure starts with the creation of small surgical incisions (wounds) where the J-plasma cannulae (a small hollow tube) is inserted. The helium gas and RF energy are then released just beneath the skin to create the cold helium plasma causing enough heat to contract the skin from the inside while the excess helium gas cools the area. Skin tightening is achieved when the cold helium plasma comes into contact with the tissues under the skin.
IS THE USE OF HELIUM IN J-PLASMA FOR SKIN TIGHTENING SAFE?
Helium is an odourless, tasteless and non-toxic gas. The helium used in J-plasma has been shown to be safe and effective in various surgical procedures like coagulation, tissue healing and skin tightening.
HOW IS THE RECOVERY?
The recovery from J-plasma usually lasts less than a month but can vary depending on the extent of the areas that were treated. During the first week, minimal bruises, swelling and dry skin are common. Itching is also not uncommon as the body begins to heal. Mild to moderate discomfort is also expected especially on the first two days but are manageable with over-the-counter pain medications.
WHEN WILL I NOTICE IMPROVEMENT?
You will notice tighter and firmer skin on the first month and will improve over the next three to six months when the swelling has fully subsided.
