J-PLASMA SKIN RESURFACING
NONSURGICAL FACIAL REJUVENATION WITH RESURFACING
This revolutionary skin resurfacing treatment is changing the aesthetic industry. J-Plasma uses incredibly precise cold energy to turn back the hands of time and dramatically reduce the signs of aging. While the J-Plazty Face and J-Plazty Body procedures use cold plasma energy under the skin, J-Plasma Resurfacing uses cold plasma on the surface of the skin to ablate and smooth – virtually taking years off your face.
WHAT IS J-PLASMA?
J-Plasma Resurfacing uses a cold plasma energy to promote skin tightening and rejuvenation, as well as encouraging your skin to regrow new cells. Utilizing ionized helium gas, we are able to ablate tissue at an extremely low. The controlled temperature allows for minimal collateral damage to surrounding tissue. The technology was developed for controlled and precise medical applications such as removing cancerous lesions and was found to be beneficial in aesthetic and cosmetic practices due to the incredible cellular rejuvenation. This plasma is different from the plasma that we use for our PRP Treatments which is the platelet rich plasma found in our blood. With the cold plasma energy of J-Plasma Skin Resurfacing we can treat delicate areas such as the eyelids without causing damage to surrounding treatment area.
J-Plasma Skin Resurfacing can be added to any of our cosmetic procedures for remarkable results.
Our team will assist you with all of the information you need for exceptional results with your J-Plasma Skin Resurfacing procedure. We will address all of your concerns ahead of time and discuss what your desired results are. We will also explain his techniques and anesthesia options.
Prior to your procedure, we recommend you discontinue the use of products containing aspirin, garlic, ginseng, green tea and vitamin E for two weeks, as they may increase the risk of bruising.

With a 3-D procedure, there are several layer of sutures, accurately placed to give the lifting, tightening and filling, without leaving any tell-tale pull-lines. Some are slow dissolving sutures, others are more permanent. The skin sutures are generally removed between 7 and 14 days.
Bleeding is not common as we pay close attention to proper hemostasis. On rare occasions, a small hematoma may collect.
Everyone will experience some numbness in the face: this resolves over weeks to months. This occurs because of the dissection of the face. This is not a complication.
Because of the dissection and repositioning of the tissues, it is common for there to be small differences in the smile between the right and left sides: this is usually only noticeable to the patient and to Dr. Patel! It recovers over a few weeks.
All faces have asymmetry and there will be some degree of asymmetry. This is to be expected.
Permanent weakness of nerves and muscles is rare.
The scars are usually very well hidden. However, some patients may have a tendency to cause hypertrophic scarring: in such cases, certain lasers and treatments will help. By-and-large, scars are rarely a problem. With Caucasian skin, pinkness of scars is to be expected for several weeks. With darker skin, some hyperpigmentation may occur.
In the first few days, everyone will experience some degree of dryness and blurry vision. You will also feel that your lids look a little tight on the outer corner where you will also feel some of the deeper sutures if you put your finger there: this is of no concern. The tightness and the bumps under the skin settle over a few weeks.
More serious complications which are very rare include excessive bleeding, hemorrhage and loss of vision.
