J-Plazty is the latest innovation in skin tightening and body sculpting using cold plasma energy on the underside of the skin that results in immediate tightening and improved skin elasticity. When combined with VASER it can produce incredible skin tightening and liposculpting results incomparable to anything else available at present. J-Plazty is minimally invasive and an alternative to a tummy tuck, neck lift or arm lift and more invasive surgical procedures for tightening loose skin and body sculpting.
Rejuvence Clinic is the first and only clinic in the UK to offer J-plazty. J-Plazty was originally developed by Dr Jack Zamora in Denver, Colorado. We use exactly the same technique and are a twinned clinic.
How does J-Plazty work?
The J-Plazty trademark was developed by Dr Jack Zamora, a cosmetic surgeon based in Denver Colorado. He found that by using Renuvion, powered by J-Plasma, on the underside of the skin in regions such as the abdomen and neck he was able to achieve incredible skin tightening that was immediate and continues to improve over the next 2 to 3 months. He also noticed improvements in skin elasticity as well eliminate the crepey appearance of aging skin.
Rejuvence Clinic was one of the first clinics in the UK to offer J-Plasma alongside VASER liposuction for fat reduction with skin tightening. Dr Ghani is our Renuvion Lead and trained with Dr Jack Zamora MD of Denver, Colorado, in the unique techniques of J-Plazty.
What is Plasma Energy?
Plasma is an energy state created by adding energy to a gas. Plasma energy replaces traditional laser energy such as CO2 fraxel lasers by delivering a more precise and controlled thermal energy. Plasma energy is able to achieve better skin tightening and reduce fine lines and wrinkles whilst using less energy than a traditional laser. Plasma is not a laser and achieves much lower temperatures than laser and hence considered to be much safer.
What is J-Plasma?
J-Plasma is the most advanced form of plasma technology using cold plasma energy. This is created when helium gas is energised by radiofrequency (RF) energy. Temperatures are much cooler than laser technologies. The J-Plasma wand allows for extremely well controlled depth of penetration, superb precision as well as very limited lateral spread. This means it is overall much safer than a laser and able to produce exceptional skin tightening, reduction in fine lines and wrinkles as well as provide a significant boost in collagen and elastin formation. It literally will take you back in time.
What can J-Plazty treat?
J-Plazty can be used to treat loose skin over the stomach, arms, neck and face as well as in the thighs. This is fast becoming acknowledged as the premier non invasive treatment option in mild to moderately loose skin in those who have lost weight or are post pregnancy and want to avoid the expense and ugly scars of invasive body contouring surgery. J-Plazty can help to achieve natural looking tight skin without extensive surgery and downtime. This is the ideal procedure for achieving the ‘mommy makeover’ or for helping to get rid of moderately loose skin in those who have managed to successfully lose significant amounts of weight through dieting and/or bariatric surgery. However, in cases of excessive loose skin J-Plazty may not be appropriate.
J-Plazty Patient Journey
Following all J-Plazty and VASER liposuction procedures the application of a compression garment is essential. Compression garments are tight fitting garments that are worn immediately after the procedure. They apply constant pressure against the body and help to squeeze fluid out. They are essential for shaping and optimising the final result.
In the case of J-Plazty Skin Tightening with Renuvion compression garments take on extra significance. The compression garment prevents further swelling of the treated underside of the skin. This ensures that the skin remains more tight and heals well. Without compression there is continued swelling and this will compromise your final result.
The compression garment should be worn for 24hours a day for the first 2 weeks after your procedure. At this point we encourage all our clients to try to get into a garment one size smaller to provide even more compression. Often a board and waist trainer can also be extremely helpful. Good back posture is extremely important especially when it comes to skin tightening for abs.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) Massage
MLD is a hugely important part of the recovery from J-Plazty Skin Tightening and VASER liposuction. MLD is a specialised form of massage that helps the body rid itself of fluid that is left behind after body contouring procedures. It also helps to smooth out the skin and shape redistribution of fat in the treated areas.
MLD together with compression after liposuction and Renuvion skin tightening is just as important as the procedure itself. Without MLD and compression the best results cannot be achieved. We recommend at least 5-10 sessions over a period of 2 to 5 weeks starting within 5 days of your procedure.
At Rejuvence we have our own in house MLD therapist and can provide you with a complete package. Our therapist trained in Brazil and has a huge amount of experience with both VASER liposuction and J-Plazty patients.
