What is J-Plasma?
J-Plasma is one of the most effective aesthetic techniques used to improve body flaccidity.
It is a minimally invasive procedure that uses cold plasma energy to tighten and rejuvenate the skin on any area of the face and body. Unlike other treatments, it requires less recovery time, fewer complications and has natural results.
During the first 72 hours after J-Plasma
a compression garment must be worn.
Why is it performed?
The J-Plasma helps to rejuvenate and improve the physical appearance, reducing the flaccidity of the body contour caused by the passage of time, effects of yo-yo dieting or overweight, among others.
Areas with mild to moderate flaccidity can be treated, such as arms, abdomen, legs, neck, back, jowls and face.
What does it consist of?
A minimal incision is made in the part of the body to be treated in order to introduce a cannula through which the cold ice plasma will be applied to different depths of the skin. The skin will tighten, shrink and rejuvenate from the inside out.
Results are obtained immediately and will continue to improve as the body regenerates the skin and sagging is eliminated.
Preparation for J-Plasma
It requires local anesthesia and the procedure takes approximately 150-180 minutes. No hospitalization is required.
Care after the J-Plasma
It is common for the patient to feel a tension in the treated area, also may feel minimal pain that will decrease progressively. A compression garment should be worn for the first 72 hours.
Bruising and swelling may take up to one to two weeks to disappear after treatment, although the patient can return to his or her routine after three to five days following the procedure.
Alternatives to this treatment
In some cases this treatment against skin flaccidity is combined with liposuction or liposculpture to achieve better results.
