Home J-Plasma


People always want to feel and look refreshed regardless their age. Unfortunately, there are some factors that can lead to premature aging of the skin like stress, over-exposure to the sun, and skin pigmentation. Some of the signs of premature aging of the skin include:

  • Presence of fine lines, and wrinkles.
  • Drooping jowls.
  • Loose skin on the face and neck.
  • Spots on the face.
  • Acne scars that can’t be erased by skincare products.

To treat or reverse these signs of premature aging, one can have a J-Plasma treatment. This is an antiaging technology used to rejuvenate and resurface the skin by sculpting and shrinking loose skin on the face and other parts of the body.

J-Plasma Technique

J Plasma is a minimally invasive technology that is used for skin tightening on the face and also anywhere on the body and has remarkable results. The procedure is a great alternative to invasive body sculpting, tummy tuck and traditional facelifts.

The plasma is an ionized gas that is created by adding radio frequency energy to gas and is electrically conductive. J-Plasma on the other hand is a device that combines the RF energy (radiofrequency) with cold helium, making cold helium plasma. The cold helium plasma causes the RF energy to eliminate tissue trauma by erupting a focused steam as it’s applied over the skin, or sub dermally (underneath the skin).

It rejuvenates the skin on the neck, face and body, giving the patient natural looking results without the pain and downtime which are associated with traditional surgical procedures. The cold plasma is applied below the skin to instantly contract the area thereby improving skin laxity and tightening.
The goal of a facelift procedure is to surgically or non-surgically repair the signs of aging by repositioning and lifting underlying facial tissues and muscles to restore volume, eliminate wrinkles and folds, and tighten sagging skin on different areas of the face. The procedure improves the overall appearance of the facial structure, which results in a more youthful look and feel.

There are two categories of a facelift procedure, which depend on the needs of the patient, as well as the recommendations of the Plastic Surgeon. These are invasive and non-invasive facelifts. A facelift surgery in Dubai refers to a surgical facelift, which is by definition more invasive than a non-surgical procedure or treatment. The Plastic Surgeon will always determine which the best technique to use is to achieve the desired result for each individual candidate.

The J-Plasma Technology Process

a) The Consultation

The first step of having a J-Plasma treatment in Dubai, is to have a detailed consultation and examination in the clinic with our Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon, to determine a tailor-made plan for each candidate.

b) The Procedure

The second step is to schedule the J-Plasma procedure with the highly qualified and experienced Plastic Surgeon who is an expert in J-Plasma and other skin anti-aging procedures. The procedure, which is out-patient, requires up to three hours depending on the size of the target area, and it’s done under local anaesthesia or general anesthesia depending on the area.

Prior to any surgery or skin treatment, each patient is screened to ensure that it is safe to proceed with the procedure. This includes a pre-anesthetic consultation, blood testing, and to ensure the patient is a fit candidate for the procedure.

The J-Plasma device produces cold helium plasma (ionized gas) when it’s passed over the skin creating a mask which is then wiped off. A second pass of the device tightens the skin. In some cases, the device can also be inserted under the skin through small incisions. The helium plasma is then infused under the skin to tighten and make the skin firmer.

The expert Plastic Surgeon accompanies the patient throughout the entire process of recovery and healing, through scheduled follow-ups.

c) The Recovery

The recovery depends on the extent of the J-Plasma treatment done. After the treatment, the patient is immediately discharged, and is required to minimize strenuous activity for at least ten days, as the full recovery takes two to three weeks. The treated areas might feel tight or sore which will be eased out by medication prescribed. A compression head garment will be recommended to be won for at least three days for facial procedures. During the recovery period, strenuous activity should be avoided, but normal day-to-day activities can typically be resumed after 1 week.

Over a period of about 4 weeks, the patient would typically have several post-treatment visits to the clinic to monitor the healing process.


Although a J-Plasma procedure is straightforward, it is important that the right level of intervention or treatment is determined and that the procedure, whether surgical or non-surgical be performed by a qualified and expert plastic surgeon. A potential candidate has to fit into certain criteria to be eligible for the procedure and should have:

  • Mild to moderate skin sagging in the face, neck and body.
  • Be someone who wants a minimally invasive non-surgical procedure with immediate results.
  • Realistic expectations regarding the expected results.
  • Be in good health both physically and psychologically.

What To Expect From A J-Plasma Technology

The main benefit of a J-Plasma technology is skin tightening in any part of the body or/and face. Since everyone is different, the expected results of a J-Plasma treatment might vary from person to person, but benefits typically include:

  • Dramatic results that are achieved very fast.
  • Minimal side effects because it is a non-surgical procedure.
  • Smooth and tightened skin on the face and body
  • Minimal or zero visible scars.
  • Long lasting results.
