BOVIE J-PLASMA

TRANSFORMATIONAL HELIUM PLASMA TECHNOLOGY

J-Plasma® is an advanced energy device  combining the unique properties of cold helium plasma with RF energy. Helium plasma focuses RF energy for greater control of tissue effect, enabling  a high level of precision and virtually eliminating unintended tissue trauma.

J-Plasma Key Benefits

LOW RISK OF INJURY TO SURROUNDING TISSUE DUE TO:

  • Minimized lateral and depth of thermal spread
  • Plasma stream length controllable and precise at the micron level
  • LESS SMOKE, ODOR AND ESCHAR
  • NO CONDUCTIVE CURRENTS THROUGH PATIENT
  • EFFECTIVE ON MANY TISSUE TYPES

UNIQUE RETRACTABLE BLADE

J-Plasma’s retractable blade enables greater versatility and control of the energy, as well as enhanced visibility at the application site.

Pistol-grip and pencil handpieces with single-button cutting, dissection, ablation and coagulation.

Plastic Surgery

J-Plasma® has been successfully used in the following procedures:

CAPSULAR SCORING

The precision and minimal thermal effect of J-Plasma allow for controlled scoring of the breast capsule

Potential benefits include:
» Reduced risk of trauma to the breast tissue and pectoralis muscle
» Decreased hematoma and seroma formation
» Decreased use of pain medications
» Reduced drain output and usage

WOUND DEBRIDEMENT

Cold helium plasma enables controlled ablation of tissue and may allow for deeper and more complete debridement

Potential benefits include:
» Decreased wound size and faster healing
» Reduced biofilm development
» Reduced intra- and postoperative bleeding

SCAR REVISION

J-Plasma allows for precise and gentle removal of scars and keloids, blending the lesion to healthy surrounding tissue

Potential benefits include:
» Reduced size of scar
» Restoration of normal coloration and smoothness to surrounding tissue
» Experience to date has shown reduced risk of hyperpigmentation

What is J-Plasma®?

J-Plasma® is formed by passing inert helium gas–a much smaller molecule than CO2–through the device, and energizing the gas into a plasma stream with Bovie’s own proprietary generator. Originally designed for soft tissue coagulation during surgery with minimal impact on surrounding tissue–it is now being used extensively in soft tissue for vaginal rejuvenation, and most recently in the USA, for aesthetic medicine applications* of the face and body.

Plasma is the predominant form of matter in the universe, sometimes called a state of matter; the other more familiar states include solids, liquids and gases. Plasma is created by energizing a gas so its atoms and molecules separate (called ionization) into negatively charged electrons, and positively charged ions, which may be controlled by electromagnetic fields, such as the Bovie generator. Plasma is usually hot to break the bonds between electrons and the nuclei of the atoms and this heat can be channeled to aesthetic medical purposes, such as the J-Plasma®.  Well known applications of plasma include fluorescent light bulbs, neon signs, and plasma displays used for television or computer screens.
