The primary objective of skin tightening treatments is to enable an individual to attain a more youthful appearance.
Such treatments aim to reduce wrinkles, lines, age spots, sun damage as well as other signs of aging, lack of sleep, stress, and environmental factors. The first goal should be to determine which skin rejuvenation procedure is more effective and appropriate for a particular patient.
Skin rejuvenation procedures are both invasive and non-invasive. These procedures may include the use of plastic surgery, chemicals, ultrasound, and lasers, and may take many days or even weeks for healing.
Patients seeking a safe and cutting-edge procedure to mitigate saggy skin while improving the signs of aging such as fine lines, age spots, wrinkles, and pigmentation can consider the advanced J Plasma treatment. This latest technology provides remarkable results without the need for surgery and with minimal side-effects.
Modern Body Contouring & Laser Center, led by board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton Sundin and Dr. Reps Sundin, provides J Plasma skin tightening treatment to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and surrounding communities.
How J Plasma Works
The operative term in J Plasma is “plasma.” This term does not refer to the clear liquid contained in blood or another type of bodily fluid. Plasma here refers to the ionized gas that is an effective conductor of electrical pulses. It is called the “fourth state of matter,” the other three being liquids, solids, and other gases.
The J-Plasma device initiates with helium gas. It utilizes radio frequency (RF) energy to ionize the gas. This converts the helium gas into cold helium plasma. This cold plasma emanates from the device in a stream as the medical spa treatment provider places the device to the skin. The J-Plasma device can be utilized both sub-dermally or applied over the skin.
If the treatment provider uses the device sub-dermally, they insert it into the skin via small incisions. The treatment provider will inject this ionized gas beneath the skin which makes the skin immediately tighter. This procedure is often used on the body as a substitute for liposuction.
J-Plasma may be recommended as a non-surgical procedure for skin tightening. However, it can do more than only tightening the skin or reducing fine lines. The J-Plasma procedure can treat signs of aging on the face such as uneven pigmentation or sunspots.
This characteristic makes J Plasma a successful alternative to other non-invasive skin revitalization procedures for facial skin such as laser resurfacing or intense pulsed light (IPL).
Ideal candidates for J Plasma treatment are individuals with sagging skin and mild to moderate skin flaws, and who seek a major transformation in a non-surgical manner. It is important to understand that J Plasma is not always suitable as a spot treatment. It is most appropriate for the whole neck and face region. But some patients do seek J Plasma spot procedures to reduce skin problems in small, precise areas.
The skin revitalization impact of a J-Plasma procedure is instantly visible. The skin beneath the upper layer is noticeably smoother. The skin is free of imperfections such as fine lines and attains a dazzling glow which contributes to its smooth, bright appearance.
