J-Plasma

J-Plasma in St. Louis


J-Plasma is able to achieve what a surgical facelift is unable to do because in addition to tightening and lifting your skin, it resurfaces the skin to dramatically improve wrinkles, imprinted lines, and pigment irregularities. No laser resurfacing treatment or surgical procedure can compare with the results obtained by J-Plasma. This office-based procedure involves no cutting or sutures and is performed with oral sedation and local tumescent anesthesia.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does J-Plasma work?

Plasma is an energy state created by adding energy to a gas. In this case, J-Plasma combines cold helium gas with RF energy. There is an extreme level of precision using the wand to “paint” the targeted treatment areas with the plasma energy.

What should I do before the procedure?

During your consultation, if you are an appropriate candidate for the J-Plasma procedure, we will provide you with a comprehensive guide of do’s and don’ts before the procedure.

Are there side effects and what can I expect following the procedure?

Although the procedure is relatively pain-free, healing and downtime can last for 2-3 weeks. Most patients can wear light cover-up makeup after 2 weeks. You will want to give yourself 10 solid days of home recovery to protect your skin. During the first weeks, post-procedure patients can experience redness, minor swelling, itching, and skin peeling. Most patients describe a painless recovery. The Lifestyle Center staff will check on you daily after your treatment to ensure everything is healing properly and any discomfort is well-controlled.

When are final results visible?

It can take 3-6 months for the skin to fully remodel itself, but dramatic improvements are seen in the first few weeks following your procedure.

Am I a good candidate for the J-Plasma procedure?

Ideal candidates are seeking to address problematic areas such as:

·      Skin with pigment irregularities
·      Melasma
·      Acne Scars
·      Sun Spots
·      Wrinkles or Imprinted Lines
·      Age Spots
 

We realize this procedure is not for everyone. Achieving incredible results requires deep treatment of the facial skin. During your consultation, we will have an open, honest discussion to determine whether this procedure is appropriate for you.

Is J-Plasma an affordable procedure for me?

The cost of the J-Plasma procedure is dramatically less than the cost of a surgical face lift. In addition, as you can see from the dramatic before and after photos, it offers so much more. Dr. Moore is the first physician in the state of Missouri to offer this incredible procedure. Since this is considered a cosmetic procedure, insurance will not cover the cost. We accept many forms of payment and offer financing options as well.
