TIGHTEN LOOSE SKIN WITH J-PLASMA BODY CONTOURING
Whether you have loose and lax skin around your abdomen or you’re concerned about loose skin around your arms and thighs, undergoing a tummy tuck or body lift surgery isn’t always an option. Now, patients can undergo a minimally invasive skin tightening procedure that treats common problem areas and delivers lasting results. Dr. Sundin is excited to offer J-Plasma Body Contouring at his practice, a non-surgical body contouring treatment that can improve skin laxity and sculpt problem areas in just one visit.
Board certified (ABPS) plastic surgeons Dr. Reps Sundin and Dr. Burton Sundin at the Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery and Modern Body Contouring and Laser Center (MBody), with offices in Richmond, VA and Tysons Corner, VA, are now using J-Plasma technology to help patients achieve lasting results with a breakthrough skin tightening procedure. J-Plasma treatments for the body can target many problem areas with a technology that lifts and tightens the skin with minimal downtime.
HOW J-PLASMA BODY CONTOURING WORKS
J-Plasma Body Contouring is ideal for men and women who want to tighten up mild to moderate laxity of the skin. The skin can become loose because of weight loss, pregnancy, or the aging process. While surgical solutions, such as the tummy tuck procedure or body lift surgery, are effective, they are an aggressive approach to skin tightening and require long periods of downtime.
J-Plasma Body Contouring is an attractive body shaping treatment for patients who want to lift and tighten sagging skin around the abdomen, arms, back, bra area, buttocks, chest, flanks, thighs, and knees. This procedure is performed in-office under anesthesia and delivers instant results.
YOUR J-PLASMA BODY CONTOURING PROCEDURE
The procedure can be performed under local anesthesia so the treatment area is completely numb. Dr. Sundin will inject small amounts of lidocaine into the treatment area and then inserts the J-Plasma device subdermally to deliver plasma energy, a combination of cold helium gas and radio frequency (RF) energy, into the tissue. Cold plasma energy is powerful enough to ablate and coagulate the skin tissue which creates an almost-instant tightening effect. Results are even more apparent as the skin continues to heal weeks and months after the procedure.
J-Plasma Body Contouring procedures take approximately an hour per area and you can expect the area to feel tight and firm immediately after treatment. Pain is easy to manage with over-the-counter pain relievers. You will need to wear a compression garment for about 72 hours post-procedure to help minimize swelling and discomfort. Most patients can resume normal activities the following day and any swelling or bruising will subside within one to two weeks.
*DISCLAIMER: Individual results may vary. Results are neither guaranteed nor permanent. All patients must have realistic expectations of what plastic surgery and/or non-surgical procedures can achieve.
