This amazing skin rejuvenation treatment is revolutionizing the medical aesthetics industry! Dr. Webster at Oregon Coast Plastic Surgery is proud to offer J-Plasma® Skin Tightening and Resurfacing in his Coos Bay office.
Because sun damage and age-related skin changes affect everyone, patients are always looking for ways to repair this damage. Dr Webster traditionally uses a combination of fillers, Botox, lasers and surgery to combat signs of facial aging, including smile lines, sunspots, crow’s feet, and “smoker lines.” While these traditional treatments are successful, Dr. Webster has been looking for a truly “game changing” procedure – and he has found that with J-Plasma® facial rejuvenation!
As Dr. Webster likes to say, J Plasma is like pushing the “reset” button on your skin. Surgical facelift procedures can lift and “reposition” skin on your face to create a younger look, but there are many downsides, including cost and recovery time. Additionally, a surgical facelift does not resurface the skin, so you are left with the same, discolored and damaged skin. J-Plasma® , on the other hand, both dramatically contracts the skin as well as completely removes the damage you’ve accumulated on your skin over the years.
J-Plasma® represents a true non-surgical facelift. When J-Plasma® is used for skin resurfacing, Dr Webster can dramatically improve wrinkles, imprinted lines, and the irregular pigmentation that traditional surgical face lifts can’t do. Furthermore, the same device can significantly tighten and smooth skin under the eye and neck. J-Plasma® uses a gas plasma technology far superior to lasers, and in fact, the results cannot be compared to a laser resurfacing. We typically advise on full-face treatments, but can also do spot treatments of the eyes, mouth, and jowl area around the neck. J-Plasma® is a single, once-in-a-lifetime office procedure. Dr Webster performs the treatment in his office using only oral and tumescent anesthesia.
Are there side effects, and what can I expect post treatment?
Although the procedure is relatively pain free, healing time can last for about 2-3 weeks, with several months needed to achieve optimal results. During the first few weeks post procedure, patients can experience redness, minor swelling, itching, and skin peeling. You will want to give yourself 10 solid days of at-home recovery to protect your skin and achieve your best results. Because the J-Plasma® treatment is highly focused, it greatly reduces pain, burn scars, hyperpigmentation, and other such common side effects that are associated with typical laser treatments. Most patients describe minimal pain with recovery
Who is a good candidate?
The short answer is anybody that wants to address problematic areas such as:
● Pigmented skin on the face
● Acne Scars
● Sun spots
● Wrinkles or imprinted lines
