J-Plasma System- Could It Revolutionize or Replace the Facelift?

Aging is inevitable, even with good skincare, sun protection, and a healthy lifestyle. A time will come when professional help is needed to restore youthful, bright, and beautiful skin. When this time comes, we’re here for you. STC Plastic Surgery can restore and rejuvenate your skin using the powerful J-Plasma system by Renuvion.

J-Plasma and Your Skin

The J-Plasma system resurfaces the skin in a minimally-invasive, non-surgical treatment. It uses plasma technology to ablate and remove skin at lower temperatures than laser. This enables us to treat deeper levels in the skin without damage. It can treat almost any area on the face, often in a single treatment.

It is very precise, allowing Dr. Machida to target specific areas, including the delicate skin around the eyes or lips. J-Plasma provides targeted treatment, without damaging surrounding, healthy skin cells. It offers better than laser quality results, with a much less invasive treatment. Downtime is minimal after treatment.

Is J-Plasma an Alternative to a Facelift?

At STC Plastic Surgery, we believe in options. We love providing our patients with a wide range of choices, so they can find the treatments that best align with their goals and lifestyle. Some of our patients use J-Plasma as a facelift alternative, opting for this non-surgical treatment for its lifting, tightening, and collagen enhancing benefits.

Other patients use J-Plasma as a complement to surgical treatments, like a facelift. J-Plasma improves the skin’s appearance, and ensures that the skin will look its best after facelift surgery. We would love to discuss your many options for facial rejuvenation during a personalized consultation with Dr. Machida.

J-Plasma offers some similar treatment effects to a facelift including:

  • Reduction of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Smoothing of smoker’s lines
  • Skin tightening and lifting

In addition, it also fades sun spots, freckles, and discoloration. It also brightens the skin’s appearance and improves its texture. Alone or paired with a facelift, this skin resurfacing treatment dramatically transforms the skin.

The Limits of J-Plasma

We love the J-Plasma system and use it often on our patients with excellent results. It allows many of our patients to delay or avoid facelift surgery. While it is an alternative to surgery, it is important to understand its limitations.

J-Plasma tightens skin, but not as much as a facelift. Lifting results are also more dramatic from a surgical procedure. If you choose this non-surgical option in place of a facelift, know the results will be more subtle. Pair this with a facelift and enjoy the benefit of both options, for some of the best facial rejuvenation results we are able to achieve.
