J-Plasma is a revolutionary technology that can remove wrinkles and other hard to treat skin problems. Discovered by the Bovie Medical Corporation, J-Plasma utilizes a cooled helium plasma that can more precisely tighten and resurface skin with less risk of side effects compared to traditional aesthetic lasers.
J-Plasma Facial Skin Resurfacing
For treatment of sun damage, acne scarring, wrinkles and brown spots, J-Plasma is used to remove the outer layer of skin to create a more even skin tone and texture. J-Plasma’s ability to tighten skin is so effective that it can lift sagging eyebrows, eyelids, lips and jowls- a feature superior to even the most advanced laser systems today. With a single treatment, the results are as dramatic as a surgical facelift but without the need for any incisions.
J-Plasma Neck Tightening
The ability to tighten loose neck has mostly been limited to surgery. But now, the J-Plasma neck tightening procedure offers a less invasive option for improving skin tone and contour. With 3 small incisions behind the ears and under the chin, a specialized J-Plasma device tightens skin from the underneath surface. The result is smoother neck skin without the downtime of a surgical lift. J-Plasma neck tightening is ideal for individuals with mild to moderate skin laxity and those who are unable to undergo surgery.

4. How is the J-Plasma treatment performed?
The treatment will begin with the doctor using local anesthesia to ensure minimal discomfort. Once this is done, a specialized device will be passed over the skin that ablates the skin’s outermost layer. For some patients, one pass will be enough. For patients who want more dramatic results, two passes can be done. After the treatment is completed, the skin will be cleansed. You will be given specific aftercare instructions so that you can take proper care of your skin at home.
From start to finish, the procedure will take about 1 hour.
5. What is the recovery duration with J-Plasma?
After your J-Plasma treatment, you will have to take about two weeks off from work since you will be experiencing skin peeling and redness. The redness can last about 2 months. If you are experiencing any pain or discomfort, you can take some over-the-counter pain medications. If pain persists, contact the doctor.
