J-Plasma body contouring and skin tightening is an innovative procedure that tightens and contours sagging skin anywhere on the body in a non-invasive manner.
This treatment is ideally used to perform a neck lift for patients who want to avoid cosmetic surgery. The J-Plasma system uses a unique device that delivers “helium plasma’’ energy through small incisions to the skin’s undersurface in the neck area.
The patient can receive J-Plasma treatment by itself or as is frequently the case, along with liposuction. After a fat removal through liposuction, J-Plasma can tighten the skin. This combination produces excellent improvements to the contours of the body which would not have been possible otherwise.
Modern Body Contouring & Laser Center (MBody), led by board-certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton M. Sundin and Dr. Reps B. Sundin, provides non-surgical neck lift with J-Plasma to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and surrounding locations.
How is the Procedure Done?
Initially, the neck region is infiltrated with the same local tumescent anesthesia that is used while performing liposuction.
Then, the surgeon will place small incisions in the treatment area. Subsequently, they will use these incisions to insert a special device to deliver helium plasma energy the skin’s undersurface to tighten and control it in a precise manner.
The helium plasma energy makes the skin tauter immediately as well as enhances the production of new collagen in the treated area. The improvements continue to establish for many months after the treatment.
Helium Plasma Energy
Helium is an inert and non-reactive gas. But when radiofrequency energy ionizes it, it becomes very reactive. This is a state that scientists call “plasma.” Upon contact with the undersurface of the skin, the helium plasma immediately makes it taut to a level that is unmatched by other contemporary technologies such as radiofrequency, ultrasound or lasers.
Furthermore, helium plasma is much cooler than laser energy. This makes it much less harmful. J-Plasma is an innovative device that has received FDA-approval for tightening skin on almost any area of the body such as the neck, arms, back, abdomen, tors0, etc.
Final Results with J-Plasma Neck Lift
The body contouring and skin tightening impacts are visible between one and two weeks as soon as the inflammation dissipates. Within one month of the procedure, the patient experiences a remarkable enhancement in the appearance of the neck area.
The helium energy promotes collagen production over the next three to six months following the procedure. This enables the neck skin to look tauter and more youthful.
The patient can expect mild inflammation and slight bruising following this procedure. This usually resolves in a week to 14 days. Even if the liposuction and J-Plasma procedures are done together, the healing time is the same as that with liposuction alone.
The surgeon may advise the patient to wear post-liposuction garments after a J-Plasma procedure. The patient can resume light activities after two to three days of the procedure similar to liposuction.
