J-Plasma skin tightening and contouring procedure works well on almost any part of the body. The treatment offers particularly remarkable results to people seeking to address loose, hanging skin in the upper arms.
These people may want to avoid traditional body lift cosmetic surgery for one reason or another. In such cases, J-Plasma can provide significant improvement without involving surgery.
Tightening loose and sagging skin in the upper arms has always been challenging without surgical removal of excess skin. However, now J-Plasma in combination with liposuction can offer a good alternative to arm lift surgery, with minimal to no scarring or downtime.
An ideal candidate for this treatment is an individual with sagging and loose skin in the upper arms and who do not want to consider traditional arm lift surgery.

Sundin, provides J-Plasma arm lift treatment to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and surrounding locations.
What is Plasma Energy?
When helium gas is ionized by radiofrequency energy, cold plasma is produced. This can be delivered to the treatment area using the J-Plasma device. Since helium gas is quite stable, it can be ionized at a very low energy which can ensure a targeted, safe, and flexible delivery.
Cold plasma is cooler in comparison to laser energy. This makes the J-Plasma arm lift procedure safer with minimal risks and tissue damage which results in a shorter recovery period.
Many other available technologies cannot rival the degree of improvement and rejuvenation that cold plasma energy offers. This level of skin tightening may not always be achieved using ultrasound, laser or radiofrequency treatment.
Preparing for Surgery
During the consultation process, the surgeon will address any questions or concerns that the patient may have as well as discuss their desired outcomes from this procedure.
Before the procedure, the surgeon will instruct the patient not to use any productions comprising garlic, aspirin, vitamin E and ginseng for two weeks as this may lead to a higher risk of bruising. If the patient is a smoker, they will need to quit smoking for a minimum of two weeks.
The J-Plasma procedure for upper arm skin tightening is an in-office procedure which is performed under local anesthesia. The surgeon will commence the procedure by placing small, discreet incisions in strategic locations depending on where the skin is loose and sagging in the upper arms.
Then the surgeon will use the J-Plasma device on the undersurface of the skin (sub-dermally) to deliver cold plasma energy. This will immediately shrink, tighten and revitalize skin from within. The outcomes are instant and continually improve as the patient’s body recovers.
Following the procedure, the surgeon and their team will observe the patient. The upper arms may feel slightly tight or sore following this procedure. Over the counter medications can help address slight discomfort. But if the pain is persistent or unbearable, the patient should reach out to the surgeon immediately.
