Your Skin, Renewed

If you are bothered by signs of aging and sun damage on your skin, Dr. Olson can restore its youthful glow and texture with the J-Plasma device. This procedure provides noticeable skin rejuvenation for his Scottsdale and Gilbert patients by:

  • Smoothing away forehead lines, crow's feet, lip lines, and other facial wrinkles
  • Lifting and tightening skin around the eyes and lips and on the lower face
  • Erasing freckles, age spots, and uneven coloring
  • Reduce scarring and the associated discoloration

Because the J-Plasma procedure provides natural skin tightening by increasing the skin's collagen production, it may be used as a nonsurgical alternative to a facelift or eyelid surgery and often performed in conjunction with a facelift. J-Plasma treatments can also enhance the results of these facial cosmetic surgery procedures by softening under-eye wrinkles, tightening the brow area, and smoothing the skin on the lower cheeks.

What to Expect

Depending on your personal preference and areas being treated, your J-Plasma procedure may be performed while you are under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation. Treatments typically take 30 to 45 minutes to complete. After you are driven home by a friend or family member, plan to rest for the remainder of the day. For optimal results, it's essential to follow your aftercare instructions closely.

Afterward, your skin will peel as it starts the restoration process for about 7-10 days. The redness will fade within about 6 weeks, but it may be covered with makeup after about 10 days. Expect your skin to peel for 10 to 14 days. Most patients feel ready to return to work within about 10 days, unlike the typical 14- to 20-day recovery period for CO2 laser treatments. Pain following the procedure is typically minimal and only over-the-counter medication such as Advil is necessary.

Because this procedure affects the entire surface of the skin, results are dramatic. A single treatment is all most patients require to have skin that is evenly colored, smooth, and tighter. Our laser skin rejuvenation treatments provide similar benefits with a series of treatments.
