Feb. 13, 2018 – Doctor Daniel Careaga of Careaga Plastic Surgery defines the cutting edge of surgical technology as the first and only plastic surgeon in South Florida to offer his patients J-Plasma for minimally invasive skin tightening.
Body contouring is one of the most popular components of cosmetic plastic surgery. Procedures can essentially all be divided into fat removal procedures or skin tightening procedures. Obtaining excellent results through liposuction requires uniform skin tightening in order for the skin to have a natural tight appearance once all the fat has been removed. Patients with moderate to severe loose skin are usually better suited for skin removal procedures such as abdominoplasty or tummy tuck. Mild to moderately loose skin patients require additional measures to obtain an excellent result. Traditional methods such as ultrasonic or laser based treatments have given inconsistent results and can lead to burns due to the heat given off by the device.
J-Plasma® is an advanced energy device combining Radiofrequency (RF) energy with the unique properties of cold helium plasma. Helium plasma focuses RF energy for greater control of tissue effect, enabling a high level of precision and virtually eliminating unintended tissue trauma. J-Plasma can be done under local or general anesthesia. It takes about 45 minutes to treat the entire abdomen and the skin tightening effect is immediate. There is minimal bruising and swelling and downtime is a few days.
In addition to body contouring procedures, J-Plasma can also be done for face and neck rejuvenation. Patients with loose skin of the lower face and neck can benefit from instant tightening with this minimally invasive procedure with almost no downtime.
