Read on to learn about the j-plasma procedure, the benefits of j-plasma, if j-plasma is right for you, and more about Dr. Emmett, a professional and highly sought-after surgeon. 

What is j-plasma, and what does it do?

J-plasma is a non-invasive surgical device used in various medical procedures that allows for precise and controlled tissue manipulation without causing damage to surrounding tissues.

The recently FDA-approved device is considered a safe and effective tool for many types of surgery, such as skin resurfacing. 

Improve the appearance of sagging skin by removing the outer layers of damaged skin cells. 

Helios is a state-of-the-art proprietary technology that only a small number of practices offer, making it unique and difficult to find a certified surgeon to perform the procedure.

J-plasma can be used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improve skin texture and tone, and reduce the appearance of scars, sun damage, and other blemishes on the skin. 

This aesthetic procedure can help reduce lines smokers develop around their mouth, as well as laugh lines on the face and crows feet around the eyes. 

If you are looking for a safe way to boost your confidence and feel better in your skin, reach out to Dr. Emmett, who will help determine if it is the correct procedure.

How does the j-plasma procedure work?

Laser skin resurfacing is typically performed on an outpatient basis and can treat multiple areas including the face, neck, chest, and other areas of the body. 

The procedure can take anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours, depending on the size of the area you need to be treated. The Helios laser treatment offers an alternative to other costly and invasive surgery. 

Prior to your surgery, Dr. Emmett will give you a local anesthetic. She will then apply the helios laser to your skin in a uniform pattern. 

After the procedure, the skin may be red and swollen, and there may be some discomfort and tenderness. You can generally treat these symptoms with over-the-counter medications.

Most people can return to their normal activities within a few days, but it may take several weeks for the full effects of the treatment to be visible. 

What are the benefits of j-plasma?

The benefits of j-plasma will vary from person to person, depending on the specific treatment area and the individual’s skin type and overall health,  but some potential benefits may include: 

  • Improved pigmentation 
  • Improvement of deep depressions in the skin 
  • Improved skin tone and texture
  • Increased self-esteem and confidence
  • It is a painless and non-invasive procedure
  • Minimal downtime with long-lasting results 
  • Reduces wrinkles and fine lines
  • Anti-aging treatment
  • Safe when performed by a trained and experienced provider
  • Immediate tightening of skin after just one treatment
