After four years of refinements, Jack Zamora, M.D., an oculofacial plastic surgeon in Denver, Colo., says he has found the ideal mix of minimally invasive devices and techniques to dramatically rejuvenate the upper and lower face, with less downtime, risk and expense than with a full-deep plane facelift.

The J-PlaZty procedure involves adipose and stem cell grafting; laser facial sculpting with the Precision TX (Cynosure); a proprietary stitch maneuver; a touch of CO2 laser resurfacing; and, most importantly, use of the J-Plasma (Bovie Medical), which Dr. Zamora says uses energized helium to create energy that is only a fraction — 25% — of the potential thermal load of a CO2 laser.
