Skin Tightening and Rejuvenation with J-Plasma in Dubai | Dr Maurizio Viel


Loose skin anywhere on the body can make us less confident in our appearance. Whether it is due to excessive weight loss or just the loss of skin elasticity and tone due to aging, loose skin can be almost impossible to correct with diet and exercise alone. In the past, invasive surgeries such as tummy tucks, face lifts, and body sculpting were the most common treatments used to address these issues.



J-plasma is a surgical skin-tightening procedure that delivers controlled plasma energy with exceptional precision. It applies energy beneath the skin, causing a contraction and tightening effect that is gentle but highly effective. J-Plasma not only tightens the skin but also stimulates natural collagen production, meaning you will continue to see the benefits of the treatment for up to 6 to 9 months.



Although J-Plasma has shot to fame as a revolutionary skin tightening treatment, there are also many other potential benefits to the procedure, including:

  • Tightening of loose skin on the face, neck, breast, stomach, arms, and thighs
  • Improvement of skin texture and tone around the lips, eyes, cheeks, forehead, jaw, and neck
  • Little to no downtime is needed
  • Leaves little to no scaring
  • Performed as an outpatient treatment so you can return home the same day



The main treatment for J-Plasma, and depends on the area being treated, the methods may vary slightly. Treatments carried out on the body are usually subdermal (under the skin). These can be done under a local or general anaesthetic, depending on the size of the area being treated. Your cosmetic surgeon, Dr Maurizio Viel, will then make very small incisions for a cannula to be inserted. Through this cannula, a combination of helium gas and radiofrequency waves are released under the skin, creating a surge of cool plasma that makes the skin contract, firming the skin almost immediately. During the process, collagen production is also stimulated, leaving the skin rejuvenated and tighter after one procedure.



J-Plasma can be combined with other surgeries, such as vaser liposuction, for maximum results. Liposuction extracts fat from specific areas of the body; however, after surgery, the skin may become loose where the excess fat has been removed. By combining liposuction with J-Plasma, not only is the stubborn fat removed, but the skin is then tightened, enhancing the effects of the treatment. The combination of these two brilliant procedures can achieve wonderful results for most parts of the body, including the face, neck, arms, chest, abdomen, thighs, and buttocks. It leaves only very small scars and requires a short recovery time.



J-Plasma is suitable for both men and women with mild to moderate excess skin who want to tighten the skin and regain a more youthful appearance. J-Plasma is often sought after by patients that have loose skin due to aging, weight loss, or pregnancy. Patients should be close to their ideal weight and in good overall health to undergo this procedure.



Your recovery following a J-Plasma procedure will depend on the size and location of the area treated, as well as your general health and wellbeing. The larger the area being treated, the more downtime will be needed. However, most patients can return to their usual daily activities after one week. It is normal for the area that has been treated to feel tight and experience some bruising and swelling. This should also subside within one week of your procedure. In addition, you may be asked to wear a compression garment to support the skin while it heals.


You can expect to see a noticeable difference in the firmness of your skin immediately after treatment. However, the full effects may not be visible for a few weeks, and it is important to note that everyone’s healing journey is different, so you should allow yourself time to see the maximum results. As the J-Plasma procedure also stimulates collagen production, you will notice a continued improvement in the tone and texture of your skin for up to 9 months after your J-Plasma treatment.
