J-PLASMA SKIN RESURFACING
NONSURGICAL FACIAL REJUVENATION WITH RESURFACING
J-Plasma uses radio frequency energy surrounded by a cool helium cone to provide results that rival some surgical facelifts. And unlike a surgical facelift, J-Plasma provides full facial resurfacing to restore your skin to a more youthful healthy state in addition to skin tightening. This is similar to skin resurfacing using ablative techniques like the CO2 laser, but the results are more pronounced. Along with the more pronounced results, go slightly longer healing times as illustrated below.
J-PLAZTY FACE: SURGICAL REJUVENATION WITH MINIMAL INVASIVE APPROACH
J-Plazty™ is a revolutionary minimally invasive procedure that uses cold plasma energy on the underside of the skin to instantly tighten and rejuvenate anywhere on the face and body. A unique alternative to traditional facelifts, tummy tucks and body sculpting, the J-Plazty™ procedure will shrink and sculpt loose and lax skin without large incisions, downtime or the complications of cosmetic surgery.
BENEFITS OF J-PLAZTY FACE
- Immediate skin tightening
- Improved skin elasticity
- Eliminates crepey skin
WHAT IS J-PLAZTY?
J-Plazty™ Face uses cold plasma energy under the skin to lift, tighten and rejuvenate the face and neck giving you natural looking results with minimal downtime and no complications of a traditional facelift. J-Plazty™ is unique because the cold plasma energy applied under the skin creates instant skin contraction resulting in improved laxity, tightening and shrinkage.

WHAT IS PLASMA ENERGY?
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.
POST TREATMENT INFORMATION
We will check in with you after your procedure. It is normal for your face and neck to feel a bit tight or sore after the procedure. Minor discomfort can be treated with over the counter Tylenol.
The J-Plazty™ Face Procedure takes about an hour and patients can expect initial tightness in the treated area. Pain is minimal and can be lessened with an over-the-counter pain reliever. Patients wear a facial compression garment for the first 72-hours. Mild swelling and bruising can take one to two weeks to resolve, however most patients are able to resume normal activities three to five days post procedure.
SCHEDULE YOUR CONSULT TODAY
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.
