Introducing Jett Plasma Medical in Malta
Jett Plasma is a state-of-the-art medical device used for skin tightening and skin lifting. It is also used for eyelifts, eye bags, tightening skin on the neck and around the mouth, hand rejuvenation, as well as mole, skin tag, or wart removal.
Jett Plasma does not require a general anaesthetic and many procedures can be done in less than an hour, with results that can last up to five years.
How does Jett Plasma work?
Unlike many of the other plasma devices on the market, the Jett Plasma pen uses a direct current (DC) rather than an alternating current (AC), which allows it to 'scan' the skin as well as dot it. This means that this device is more versatile, can be used over larger areas without creating as much damage, and the downtime can be less than that of other plasma devices.
The Jett Plasma treatment uses 'plasma' – the fourth state of matter after solid, liquid, and gas. It is an ionized gas that becomes highly charged and acts almost like a tiny lightning bolt that effectively vapourises or 'sublimates' the excess skin. The treatment leaves behind just fine crusting that disappears after a week or so.
The removal of the excess tissue and the heat generated effectively tightens the skin and boost collagen production.
Jett is a low-temperature plasma device, which means it can be used on the person's face and body.
Because the current is continuously in one direction, it has an advantage over the alternative current versions in terms of control, and the size and depth of the area it comes in contact with. This means the treatment is more precise, and the downtime will be shorter.
What is Jett Plasma used for?
Jett Plasma offers a non-surgical alternative to many skin conditions that previously only surgery could achieve. The procedure can be used for (see before and afters below):
- Improving acne scarring.
- Reducing pigment spots.
- Non-surgical eyelid lifting (non-surgical blepharoplasty).
- Removal of creases or wrinkles around the mouth (smokers lines) and eyes (crow's feet).
- Removal of skin tags, fibromas, and warts.
- Removal of Xanthelasma.
- Reducing stretch marks and loose skin.
- Skin lifting and tightening on the face, neck, and body.
- Hand rejuvenation.
Besides removing excess skin to provide a lifting effect, Jett Plasma also promotes collagen production for a long-term skin rejuvenation benefit. It does not require a general anaesthetic and many procedures can be done in less than an hour, with results that can last up to five years.
AC plasma devices can only do 'dots' with the device, but Jett Plasma can deliver a continuous flow of plasma, which allows the device to move over the skin in a 'scanning' motion.
This allows the area to be treated with less damage than with the traditional 'dot' method. The Jett's Plasma dots are also smaller and to a consistent depth, which, it's manufacturers claim, make it more precise when applied to the skin.
What is it like?
A local anaesthetic is usually applied; this may be an injection or a via numbing cream, depending on the area being treated. For example, mole removal and the non-surgical eyelift will need an anaesthetic injection while the hand rejuvenation will usually be done with numbing cream.
When the plasma connects with the skin, there may be a sensation of heat. Depending on your pain threshold, this may be mild discomfort, which subsides as soon as the procedure is over. The eye area and the area around the mouth can be quite sensitive and may be more painful.
What are the side effects?
Side effects include inflammation and flushing of the treated area, which may last for two up to three days. Around the eye area, it may last longer – up to ten days, and there may be swelling that may last a few days. Sleeping with some extra pillows to keep the head elevated can help.
There will also be crusting or small dot-like scabs on the skin, which will last for a week to ten days. It is crucial not to pick or scratch the area and allow the crusts to disappear without interference.
If it is a mole that has been treated, an area equivalent to the size of the mole will crust. The scab will drop off within 1-2 weeks.
Do not put any makeup on for at least 24 hours after the treatment.
Is it suitable for everyone?
No, Jett Plasma is not suitable for everyone. It is not ideal for people who:
- Are pregnant
- Have epilepsy
- Have any metal implants
- Have a pacemaker
- Have an acute inflammatory condition
How many treatments are required
Non-surgical eyelifts and skin rejuvenation usually only take one or two sessions to attain the desired outcome. However, the majority of patients respond positively only after a single session.
You will see preliminary results instantly, and the result will continue to develop over the coming months and may last for up to 5 years.
Mole, wart, and skin tag removal is a one-off procedure.
So is it worth it?
For skin tightening and non-surgical eye lifts, it is far less expensive than the surgical alternatives, and the manufacturers say the results can last up to five years, making it comparable with surgery.
Make sure that the person who is doing the procedure is a medical practitioner who received professional training in performing these procedures using Jett Medical.
