Tightening Loose Skin
Loose, saggy skin is a common sign of aging that many men and women of all body types struggle with. In addition to surgical skin tightening procedures, Dr. Donald Hause is pleased to offer the latest in non-surgical body contouring for patients who wish to achieve long-lasting skin firming and tightening. J-Plasma from Bovie® is a non-surgical skin tightening system that uses helium plasma to deliver radiofrequency energy to the body’s tissues in a safe and precise manner. Unlike other technologies, J-Plasma emits energy that stimulates the production of fresh collagen without damaging the surrounding nerves and blood vessels. J-Plasma is quickly becoming a popular non-surgical skin tightening treatment thanks to its results and minimally invasive technique.
How J-Plasma Works
Other radiofrequency energy procedures run the risk of overheating the skin and the surrounding nerves and tissues. J-Plasma on the other hand uses cold helium plasma to focus radiofrequency energy to ablate the outer skin layers. The narrow plasma beam passes through the outer layers to reach the deep tissues with greater precision and without the risk of overheating and damaging tissues. Dr. Hause uses the hand device to gently ablate the overlying skin layers one or several times, depending on the degree of correction desired.
Results can be seen within weeks post-treatment and continue to improve up to six months. Downtime is minimal; patients are free to resume most normal activities within a few weeks after treatment.
Body Areas It Can Treat
J-Plasma can address loose skin on the following areas:
- Face and neck
- Upper arms
- Inner thighs
Ideal candidates for J-Plasma are individuals with mild to moderate skin laxity. For severe skin laxity, Dr. Hause may recommend a surgical procedure like a tummy tuck, facelift, or thigh lift, depending on the body area.
Because it stimulates collagen production, J-Plasma can also be used as a skin resurfacing treatment to improve skin tone, complexion, wrinkles, and other signs of aging and sun damage.
