MD Aesthetica by Dr.Lyos is pleased to have been selected by Bovie Medical to the second provider in Texas to offer J-Plasma!
J-Plasma® is an advanced energy device combining the unique properties of cold helium plasma with RF energy. Helium plasma focuses RF energy for greater control of tissue effect, enabling a high level of precision and virtually eliminating unintended tissue trauma. We use Bovie Medical Corporation’s new J-Plasma® for skin-tightening* and non-fractionated ablative skin rejuvenation*. . . the only device with SUPER precision to 200 microns, minimizing the extensive collateral damage conventional lasers can cause to normal skin tissue. Consequently, healing time is accelerated with many patients able to return to work in less than 10 days, compared to 14 or more days with comparable non-fractionated ablative CO2 lasers.
What is J-Plasma®?
J-Plasma® is formed by passing inert helium gas–a much smaller molecule than CO2–through the device, and energizing the gas into a plasma stream with Bovie’s own proprietary generator. Originally designed for soft tissue coagulation during surgery with minimal impact on surrounding tissue–it is now being used extensively in soft tissue for vaginal rejuvenation, and most recently in the USA, for aesthetic medicine applications* of the face and body.
Plasma is the predominant form of matter in the universe, sometimes called a state of matter; the other more familiar states include solids, liquids and gases. Plasma is created by energizing a gas so its atoms and molecules separate (called ionization) into negatively charged electrons, and positively charged ions, which may be controlled by electromagnetic fields, such as the Bovie generator. Plasma is usually hot to break the bonds between electrons and the nuclei of the atoms and this heat can be channeled to aesthetic medical purposes, such as the J-Plasma®. Well known applications of plasma include fluorescent light bulbs, neon signs, and plasma displays used for television or computer screens.
Interested? The best J-Plasma® candidates are those with very loose and dull skin of lighter color, 50 + years or older. Call us at 713-799-0000 for a complimentary consultation.
