Skin aging, gravity and sun damage create wrinkles, dark spots, saggy skin and an unhealthy looking complexion. Additional concerns for those of us lucky to live in the Denver area and the higher elevations are persistent lip “smoker lines” and crêpe paper changes in the upper and lower eyelids. While surgery can be used to lift and reposition the face and eyelid skin, imprinted lines and wrinkles and irregular pigmentation are best addressed with skin resurfacing techniques such as Helios. Dr. Weber is one of the few providers of this exciting technology in the state of Colorado.
We offer a complete complement of home care products to both prepare your skin for resurfacing treatment and speed your post-treatment healing. The treatment is performed by Dr. Stephen Weber in office with both topical and local anesthesia to anesthetize the face and eyelid skin. We also offer oral sedation to help our patients relax during both the numbing process and the procedure itself.
Helios Skin Resurfacing (J-Plasma) can achieve:
- Elimination of lip lines and “smoker lines”
- Smoothing and tightening of the upper and lower eyelid skin
- Reduction in mild lower eyelid bags
- Smoothing of facial lines and wrinkles
- Reduction in facial scarring
- Repair of sun-damaged skin
- Improvement in skin coloration and complexion
- Smoothing of skin texture
What is the “Plasma” in J-Plasma?
“Plasma” is a state of matter that is created by passing inert medical-grade Helium gas through the Bovie medical generator. J-Plasma® is an advanced energy device combining the unique properties of cold helium plasma with radiofrequency energy. Helium plasma focuses radiofrequency energy for greater control of tissue effect, enabling a high level of precision and virtually eliminating unintended tissue trauma. This results in the ability to treat facial skin reducing pigmentation, lines and wrinkles while minimizing trauma to surrounding tissues and reducing downtime in comparison to non-fractionated laser treatments.
Dr. Weber and his staff are exactly what I want out of medical professionals. Friendly, courteous, responsive, and caring. Dr. Weber takes the time to get to know you and what you are looking to obtain through surgery.
I had trouble breathing through my right nostril my entire life and finally decided to have it corrected. As it turns out, my left nostril needed some work too. Dr Weber listened to my concerns and made thoughtful,well explained recommendations. The surgery went well and I'm breathing better than I ever thought I could. Food tastes a little better too 🙂
