Looking for Skin tightening of face and body? Learn about J plasma skin tightening in Cincinnati.
Skin tightening using Cool Helium Plasma is a cutting edge, next generation technology that allows previously unattainable results. The excitation of helium electrons through radiofrequency energy allows for the creation of a “cool” 100-degree plasma beam that can be used on the outside or underside of the skin to provide spectacular skin tightening results.
How does Skin Tightening by Helium Plasma work?
Skin tightening has always been a challenging issue. . Heating the skin with Helium Plasma causes protein coagulation without damage of adjacent structures. What does that mean? When we warm an egg white, we see that as the heat progresses from warm to hot, the white of the egg becomes more firm, turning from liquid to a jelly-like consistency, and then with further heat, that jelly turns solid. The trick with contracting and firming the skin is very similar to the changes in the egg white, where we need to find the optimum temperature to create the coagulation of the egg (or in this case the skin) proteins. The cooler temperature of the helium plasma stream as compared to other technologies such as laser allows for heating to that “sweet spot” where we see firming without burning- and amazing results!
Body Skin Tightening with J-Plasma
is incredibly excited to offer this truly game changing body skin tightening using Helium Plasma. The procedure is minimally invasive and is done in 1-2 hours in the office and can be used to tighten skin in:
- Arm folds
- Inner and Outer thighs
Face Skin Tightening with J-Plasma
Face skin tightening with J plasma is truly a game changer when it comes to skin resurfacing. For reversing the signs of aging and sun damage, plasma resurfacing utilizes advanced energy technology by combining the unique properties of helium plasma excited with radiofrequency energy. The treatment of the outer skin with the Cool Helium Plasma stream heats surface of skin precisely without any damage to adjacent tissue. This removes the outer layer of skin without burning, heating the underlying tissue just enough to cause contraction and stimulate new protein formation. Wrinkles and lines can be made to virtually disappear. Because of the amazing precision, Plasma Skin Resurfacing can be individualized to achieve each patient’s needs and achieve truly extraordinary results.

What is J-Plasma?
The word plasma refers to ionized, energized gas- in this case Helium gas. A radio frequency electrode is used to energize a stream of helium creating a stream of plasma that is used to treat the skin.
How does J-Plasma Cool Helium Skin Resurfacing work?
The helium plasma stream created by the J-Plasma device creates a beam of heated helium that is extraordinarily precise. Because Helium only has 2 electrons, the excited state of this gas occurs at a much lower temperature than other resurfacing treatments. This prevents damage to tissue deeper or adjacent to the treated area, and allows for a full effect to be seen at precisely the desired tissue. The heat from the plasma beam vaporizes only the outermost skin layer (epidermis) during the first pass, while the precise energy of the further passes invigorate the optimal cells to create a new layer of optimized skin. Sun damage and normal wrinkles require 2 passes during the single treatment to create an incredible improvement. Further passes may be required (again, during the single treatment) in order to produce the desired effects.
What are the effects of the J-Plamsa treatment?
No other treatment has the ability to reverse signs of aging and sun damage that Cool Helium plasma does. Not only are pigmentation changes and skin irregularities improved, but fine lines are removed and deep wrinkles often disappear as well. Better yet, the Cool Plasma stream actually causes contraction of lax skin, allowing facial shaping and toning in a previously unseen way. This treatment creates a completely new visage with improvement of skin tone, skin pigment, skin wrinkles, and skin laxity.
How many Cool Helium Plasma Skin Resurfacing treatments are needed?
Most patients require a single treatment with multiple “passes” of the Helium Plasma stream.
Who can benefit from Cool Plasma treatments?
Cool Plasma is best utilized in men and women of relatively fair skin, referred to as Fitzpatrick skin types of 1, 2, and 3. This refers to patients who are not of dark complexion such as dark Latino and African American patients
What Are J-Plasma's effects around the mouth?
The perioral region, or area around the mouth, is one of the areas that benefits the most from J Plasma. It almost erases the smoker’s lines or the fine lives around the lips. Additionally, because of the ability of J Plasma to cause tissue contraction, lips that thin with age can be brought back to a more youthful, aesthetic shape by actually lifting the lip margin and shortening the lip length between the nose and the upper lip- without surgery!
What Are J-Plasma's effects around the eyes?
The peri-occular region, or area around the eyes, is an area that J-Plasma’s unique skin tightening properties are best seen. In many cases, bulges around the eyes previously corrected only with surgery can now be made youthful appearing with a single J-Plasma treatment. This is in addition to rejuvenating the sun damage around the eyes and virtually eliminating the crow’s feet wrinkles… without surgery.
What should I expect after a Cool Helium Plasma treatment?
After a treatment you will experience significant swelling of the treated areas. Your skin will be treated with ointment for several days as the healing progresses. It is critical to avoid the sun in the weeks following your J-Plasma procedure, and healing takes a few weeks of local care. At about 3to 4 weeks, most patients are back in action with makeup, though some pinkness can remain for up to 3 months.
