The Newest Advancement in Skin Resurfacing
J-Plasma® by Bovie® works both on and below the surface of the skin to modify the skin’s architecture by removing bad elastin and generating new collagen. The technology is used for treatment such as facial and non-facial areas for wrinkles, sun damage, such as superficial skin lesions, actinic keratosis (pre-cancerous lesions), and seborrheic keratosis. This technology is very new and MD Aesthetica is only one of two providers in Texas!
What is the J-Plasma skin resurfacing treatment?
The new J-Plasma skin resurfacing procedure has shown great promise in avoiding complications associated with the traditional anti-ageing techniques. The J plasma combines radio frequency heat energy with helium gas to produce a plasma; this plasma has a very controlled depth of penetration and lateral spread. MD Aesthetica has been using J-Plasma resurfacing of the face causing remarkable collagen remodeling and skin tightening. To be clear, J-Plasma is not a laser, it is much more. It uses helium to precisely eliminate layer by layer of the skin surface with a much lower temperature than other treatments. Due to this lower temperature, there is less collateral damage to the adjacent tissue, which in turn drastically reducing the potential for complications. The procedure removes the epidermis on the first pass and then tightens the dermis on the next pass, thus shrinking and eliminating the lines.

AREAS TREATABLE WITH J-PLASMA?
The whole face, including around the eyes, the mouth, the chin, and the neck are treatable with J-Plasma skin resurfacing. Furthermore the procedure causes little to no pain. Recovery post-treatment instructions include washing the treated area regularly and keeping it lubricated as the area heals. In conclusion, the results of the procedure are long-lasting and slow down the ageing process.
J-Plasma is especially relevant in that it is performed under local anesthesia; the most common procedure time is approximately 35 minutes. Although the procedure is relatively pain free, healing down time can last for about 2-3 weeks. J-Plasma needs several months consequently to achieve optimal “final” results.
