Cool Helium Plasma Resurfacing
Cool Helium Plasma is a cutting edge technology that combines radio frequency energy with inert helium gas to create a plasma that can ablate tissue in a very precise fashion. Plastic surgeons are now using it to resurface facial skin with amazing results. CO2 laser resurfacing is often compared, but in my opinion they're not close. J-Plasma is safer, more precise, and effective in a single treatment compared to multiple treatments often required by lasers. It is ideal for Fitzpatrick 1s and 2s, with dyschromias, old acne scars, large pores, fine lines and wrinkles. Based on your photo and description, you appear to be a great candidate. In my practice I have stopped treating specific areas and now advise patients to treat the whole face, as the demarcation between treated and untreated skin is significant. Talk to your doctor about this. Also the healing time is prolonged. But on the back end, the results are more than amazing. I wish you the best!
Yes, J-Plasma is new but it is spectacular. I would definitely recommend it. It is, by far, the best resurfacing tool we have to date!
