J Plasma is a procedure that combines radiofrequency and helium gas to achieve skin rejuvenation, contouring, firmness, and smoothness. It is a safe and low-risk procedure. The ease and convenience of performing this treatment without the need for surgical intervention have made it increasingly popular. Due to its advantages and the effects it has on the skin, J Plasma is one of the most sought-after non-surgical rejuvenation procedures.
Why is J Plasma Performed?
J Plasma is performed to address signs of aging, weight fluctuations, post-pregnancy deformities, and hereditary factors that result in wrinkles, lines, sagging, and dryness. Particularly in individuals who have undergone liposuction to remove excess fat, precautions need to be taken to prevent waviness and laxity in the skin due to the void left by fat removal. J Plasma helps to tighten and rejuvenate the area without the need for surgical excision.
J Plasma is also highly effective in certain skin treatments, such as mole removal, skin discoloration treatment, scar revision, and cellulite treatment. The non-surgical nature and practical application of this procedure are among its key advantages.
Who is a Candidate for J Plasma?
J Plasma is suitable for individuals who have early to moderate stages of skin sagging, cellulite, sagging, and stretch marks. For advanced stages of these deformities, surgical procedures may provide definitive solutions. The ideal candidates for J Plasma should meet the following criteria:
- Be at least 18 years old
- Not be pregnant or breastfeeding
- Not have heart conditions, high blood pressure, or diabetes
- Not have a risk of allergic reactions
Where can J Plasma be applied?
J Plasma can be performed on any area of the body that requires tightening and contouring. It is commonly used in conjunction with liposuction, but can also be done independently. The most frequently treated areas include:
- Submental (chin and neck) region
- Inner arms and thighs
- Facial area
- Abdomen and waist
- Hips and buttocks
- Breast area
J Plasma can be performed on multiple areas during the same session with the approval of a doctor.
What Sets J Plasma Apart from Other Non-Surgical Treatments?
J Plasma utilizes a combination of radiofrequency and helium gas to generate plasma energy. The function of the helium gas is to provide cooling to prevent the high heat from causing burns or tissue damage. As a result, J Plasma can reach higher temperatures than other treatments without posing risks. This is the primary distinction of J Plasma from other non-surgical methods.
Another key difference is that J Plasma is applied directly beneath the skin. Unlike other non-surgical treatments that only target the surface of the skin, J Plasma targets collagen tissues through small incisions. This allows for longer-lasting effects.
How is J Plasma Performed?
J Plasma can be performed under local or general anesthesia. Small incisions are made in the treatment area (no additional incisions are necessary when combined with liposuction). The J Plasma device’s fine tip is used to deliver high heat to the collagen tissues. This process shrinks the collagen fibers, resulting in skin tightening, firmness, and smoothness. The procedure typically takes around 1 hour.
What is the Recovery Process Like After J Plasma?
Patients can be discharged immediately after the procedure. It is recommended to rest at home for a few days following the treatment. It is normal to experience bruising, swelling, and other effects in the treated area. Scabs may form a few days after the incisions are made. Some discomfort is to be expected. Within 7-10 days, all symptoms such as pain, swelling, bruising, and scabbing will disappear. Painkillers and cold compresses can provide relief during this period.
When Will the Ideal Results Be Achieved After J Plasma?
The effects of J Plasma can be seen immediately after the procedure. Around 7-10 days after the healing process is complete, approximately 60% of the ideal results will be visible. The full effect and optimal skin quality will be achieved within 3-6 months.
What Precautions Should Be Taken After J Plasma?
To ensure a speedy recovery, desired effects, and long-lasting results after J Plasma, the following precautions should be taken:
- Avoid exposure to the sun. Avoid hot baths and steamy environments.
- Stay well-hydrated by drinking plenty of water.
- Avoid direct contact with water for the first 3 days.
- Do not scratch, rub, or pick at the treated area or scabs.
- Protect the treated area from impacts and avoid lying on it.
- Avoid strenuous activities, heavy lifting, and sports.
Will there be any scars after J Plasma?
One of the significant differences between J Plasma and surgical lifting procedures is that J Plasma does not leave any scars on the skin. The incisions made for the procedure are very small and they fade away during the healing process. Therefore, J Plasma is a scarless procedure, and there are no visible signs of the treatment on the skin.
How long does the effect of J Plasma last?
The effect of J Plasma is long-lasting. However, over time, factors such as aging or significant weight fluctuations may lead to gradual skin laxity. To maintain the long-term effects of J Plasma, it is important to prioritize a healthy lifestyle, including balanced nutrition and regular exercise.
What kind of changes does J Plasma provide?
J Plasma brings about the following changes:
1 – Improvement of body contour, resulting in a youthful and toned appearance.
2 – Skin tightening and reduction of loose tissues and wrinkles, enhancing a more dynamic and aesthetic look.
3 – Attainment of a natural appearance.
4 – Enhancement of skin quality.
5 – Boost in self-confidence and morale.
6 – Resolution of bothersome skin issues such as skin tags, blemishes, scars, cellulite, etc.
Is J Plasma safe?
J Plasma is performed using an FDA-approved device and is considered a safe and low-risk procedure. It does not cause any harm or side effects. It does not lead to the development of cancer or tumors. To ensure desired results and safety, it is important to have the procedure performed by an experienced plastic surgeon at a reputable healthcare institution (clinic, office, hospital) approved by the Ministry of Health.
Can J Plasma be combined with other procedures?
J Plasma is often combined with Vaser Liposuction for optimal results. It can also be performed in conjunction with various surgical and lifting procedures such as body contouring, breast lift, gynecomastia correction, among others.
In some cases, J Plasma can be performed as a standalone procedure. However, combining it with other procedures can save time and potentially shorten the recovery period. Additionally, combined procedures often offer more cost-effective options.
Are the prices for J Plasma reasonable?
The pricing for J Plasma may vary based on factors such as the treatment area, intended goals, the experience of the practitioner, and potential combination with other procedures. However, compared to surgical lifting procedures, J Plasma tends to be more cost-effective. The most accurate pricing information can be obtained after a consultation with a qualified healthcare professional.
