Women and men in the Stockton area can now take advantage of a revolutionary skin rejuvenation technique at California Skin & Laser Center. J-Plasma skin tightening from Dr. Gerald Bock is an entirely fresh approach to wrinkle reduction and firmer, younger-looking features.
The science of subdermal skin tightening
J-Plasma skin tightening is based on cold plasma science. Ionized helium gas is precisely applied to deep skin layers, triggering the body’s natural healing processes. As collagen builds, loose skin becomes firmer and looks more youthful, as fine lines and wrinkles diminish.
Dr. Bock uses J-plasma to sculpt lax skin at the jawline and neck. Cold plasma energy can also be applied safely on the face, even in delicate areas such as around eyes and lips, without harm to surrounding tissues.
J-Plasty - A new procedure for Skin Tightening by Dr. Gerald Bock.
What is J-Plasty procedure?
J-Plasty is a new procedure that is used for tightening the skin. It can be used in various areas such as the face, lower face, neck, body, and is used for tightening the arms.
How is the procedure done?
It uses something that is called the J-Plasma which is a relatively cold plasma.
It is an ionized helium and the little wand that applies this plasma is put between the skin and the fat, and it tightens the skin visibly.
It is a minimally invasive type of skin tightening procedure that works better than anything else that has been available previously.
Who is a good candidate for this?
Anyone who have loose or crepey skin and who is interested in improving it. It can be used on all skin types and skin colors.
Is J-Plasty a safe procedure?
It is a very safe procedure and has quite a high rate of patient satisfaction.
We do a lot of this for tightening the skin of the neck and for people who don’t want surgery or a facelift this is the ideal procedure for tightening the neck skin.

J-Plasma can be used alone or in combination with other rejuvenation techniques. Here is what to expect:
- During consultation, Dr. Bock talks with you about anesthesia options. Usually, an oral sedative before the appointment and local anesthetic are recommended.
- You may be asked to stop taking certain supplements and over the counter medications prior to treatment, to minimize risk of side effects.
- On the day of treatment, your face is cleansed.
- Anesthetic is administered by injection. Treatment begins when skin is fully numbed.
- Dr. Bock uses special instruments to apply cold plasma energy beneath the skin.
- J-plasma penetrates deep layers, stimulating skin tightening.
Recovery and results
Some initial swelling and bruising is normal, and should resolve within two to three weeks. Residual discomfort tends to be minor and easily managed with non-prescription analgesics. Noticeably youthful results begin to emerge as internal healing occurs, and change continues for several months. Improvement is long-lasting.
