J-Plasma Skin Tightening

Dr. Quita Lopez is one of the first cosmetic surgeons in California to offer the non-surgical breathrough treatment call J-Plasma skin resurfacing.

The procedure works fantastic for the following:

  • Great for lip lines
  • Tightens loose facial skin
  • Very precise
  • In-office procedure under local anesthesia

The J plasma combines radio frequency heat energy with helium gas to produce a plasma that has very controlled depth of penetration and lateral spread.  We have been using to resurfacing of the face causing remarkable collagen remodeling and skin tightening.  See our before and after pictures for the resurfacing effects.

With the J-Plasma technology, Dr. Lopez can eliminate wrinkles, fine lines, discoloration, as well as other common signs of aging skin and sun damage to the face — without the lengthy recovery periods or multiple treatments requirements.

Am I a Candidate for J-Plasma Skin Tightening?

Most patient conditions only require a single J-Plasma treatment to restore skin to it’s natural, smooth, evenly-colored and tighter appearance. The results are immediate and dramatic, effecting the entire surface of the skin.

How Long is the Recovery?

Afterward, your skin will peel as it starts the restoration process for about 7-10 days. The redness will fade within about 6 weeks, but it may be covered with makeup after about 10 days. Expect your skin to peel for 10 to 14 days. Most patients feel ready to return to work within about 10 days, unlike the typical 14- to 20-day recovery period for CO2 laser treatments. Pain following the procedure is typically minimal and only over-the-counter medication such as Advil is necessary.
