Do you have creapy, saggy and/or pigmented skin (sun damage/brown spots) on your forearms, hands, knees, thighs, or anywhere you don’t like? Dr. Wallace is the only surgeon in the Jacksonville area offering PlasmaTight™, a revolutionary skin tightening and resurfacing procedure that results in a dramatic improvement of creapy skin, fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. The PlasmaTight™ procedure is performed using the J-Plasma® device which turns helium gas into a plasma (the fourth state of matter). Unlike traditional lasers, J-Plasma uses helium which doesn’t require much energy to become a plasma. Less energy means less heat, and less heat means less thermal damage to surrounding tissues. Helium is a naturally cold gas and because the device only turns a portion of the helium into a plasma, the rest of the helium is used as a cooling agent to immediately cool the area being treated. This cooling effect further reduces thermal damage to surrounding tissues. This gives Dr. Wallace the ability to individually tailor the procedure to the patients’ desired results.
PlasmaTight™ can be performed using two different techniques, depending upon the patients skin concerns. The first option is a safe and precise dermal ablation (on the top layer of skin) which can be done almost anywhere on the body (including the face). When used on top of the skin, brown spots, tone, texture, fine lines, and wrinkles are significantly improved while also tightening the skin. The second option is to administer the plasma energy underneath the skin (subdermal) to create dramatic skin tightening (but will not improve the top of the skin for tone and texture).
"Dr Wallace is wonderful. He explains everything and then makes it happen. No surgery is a fun process, but having a doctor who pays attention to your needs makes it a lot easier. When was the last time you had your doctor’s private cell phone number? I am soooo happy with my smaller chest . I should have done it years ago! Thanks Doc!"- E.S. / Facebook / Jan 24, 2018
"Dr. Wallace is one of the most caring and talented doctors I have ever met. And as a paraplegic I have worked with quite a few."- S. / Healthgrades / Jul 10, 2017
"Fantastic Experience - Excellent Care! Dr Wallace was very skilled and exceeded my expectations. The staff was also a pleasure and treated me with care and kindness. Dr Wallace performed my explant surgery (implant removal) and total capsulectomy."- D. / RealSelf / Jan 13, 2018
"I love Dr. Wallace - Dr. Wallace is the best. He takes time with his patients and treats them as if they were his family. He explains everything about your procedure and what to expect. He answers all your questions. I highly recommend Dr. Wallace to anyone who is looking to be a better you."- J.4. / RealSelf / Jan 04, 2018
"Excellent Doctor! - Excellent! Dr Wallace is a very kind, gentle doctor. I wait until I visit my daughter in Florida to get anything done, I don’t trust anyone else to do my injectables. I had Kybella and Voluma done and it still looks good and I’m very pleased with the results. He has taken years off my appearance without looking like I have had anything done! I would highly recommend him to anyone!"- D. / RealSelf / Oct 24, 2017
What’s the Downtime?
The downtime associated with PlasmaTight™ can vary depending on how large of an area is done however, most patients need only between 3-5 days. A post-surgical garment will be worn following surgery as well but that should limit your activity.
Does it Work ?
Yes! Unlike some other devices that only provide minimal improvements, PlasmaTight™ results in immediate skin tightening with additional tightening lasting from 2-4 weeks. Our patients are amazed by the results! Dr. Wallace sees results similar to traditional surgical techniques that would leave much larger scars. That’s what makes J-Plasma so great.
How Much Does it cost ?
Because this procedure is usually performed using local numbing and IV sedation, the cost is considerably lower than alternative or traditional procedures and Dr. Wallace offers no-cost consultations. Ultimately, the cost will depend on the size of the area being treated.
