J-PLASMA SKIN REJUVENATION
This revolutionary skin resurfacing treatment is changing the aesthetic industry. Dr. Paul Ruff is proud to offer J-Plasma Skin Resurfacing. J-Plasma (Renuvion) uses incredibly precise cold energy to turn back the hands of time and dramatically reduce the signs of aging. While the J-Plasma Face and J-Plasma Body procedures use cold plasma energy under the skin, J-Plasma Resurfacing uses cold plasma on the surface of the skin to ablate and smooth – virtually taking years off your face.
WHAT IS J-PLASMA?
J-Plasma Resurfacing uses a cold plasma energy to promote skin tightening and rejuvenation, as well as encouraging your skin to regrow new cells. Utilizing ionized helium gas, Dr. Ruff is able to ablate tissue at an extremely low, controlled temperature, this allows for minimal collateral damage to surrounding tissue. The technology was developed for controlled and precise medical applications such as removing cancerous lesions and was found to be beneficial in aesthetic and cosmetic practices due to the incredible cellular rejuvenation. This plasma is different from the plasma that we use for our PRP Treatments which is the platelet rich plasma found in our blood. With the cold plasma energy of J-Plasma Skin Resurfacing we can treat delicate areas such as the eyelids without causing damage to surrounding treatment area.
Our double board certified plastic surgeon can perform your J-Plasma Skin Resurfacing treatment very simply as an outpatient procedure. Dr. Ruff uses the J-Plasma wand and gently “paints” the areas of the face with the cold plasma energy. Patients can treat the full face or target the peri-oral (mouth) or peri-ocular (eye) area.
J-Plasma Skin Resurfacing can be added to any of our cosmetic procedures for remarkable results.
Our team will assist you with all the information you need for exceptional results with your J-Plasma Skin Resurfacing procedure. We will address all your concerns ahead of time and discuss what your desired results are. The techniques and anesthesia options will also be discussed.
Prior to your procedure, we may have you do a series of two chemical peels to prepare your skin to ensure the best possible outcome.
