Winter Haven, FL plastic surgeon, Dr. Kesh Nawada, known throughout the community for introducing minimally invasive treatments that result in outstanding outcomes. One of the latest and greatest tools for surgeons to hit the Aesthetic Marketplace is Renuvion®'s J-Plasma® technology, to resurface the skin. It is used to perform J-Ablate™, a skin resurfacing treatment that uses a Cool Helium application to the outer layer of skin, heating it precisely and with accuracy so that the surrounding tissue remains healthy. This technique removes the outer layer of skin (epidermis), similar to laser skin resurfacing using an ablative approach, but without burning the deeper dermal layers so that just enough heat is used to cause contraction of the skin. Depending on the area being treated and the depth of the wrinkles, J-Ablate™ can be applied numerous times (passes), in one session to attain the desired results.
Sun damage and wrinkles diminish leaving a softer more youthful skin texture and tone. The skin is tightened and lifted.
J-Ablate™ is recommended for patients with mild to moderate skin conditions. Before Renuvion®, patients would have to consider a surgical Facelift with a Combined, Laser Resurfacing procedure to achieve similar results. While those methods are still popular, and widely used today, J-Ablate™ is excellent for turning back the hands of time, with downtime of about two weeks, with no scarring or pigment loss (no de-pigmentation). J-Ablate™ can be performed on numerous areas of the body. Call Dr. Nawada and schedule your consultation to learn more.
Lip Wrinkle Reduction
The peri-oral region, or area around the mouth, is one of the areas that benefit the most from J- Ablate™. Additionally, because of the ability of Renuvion®'s Cool Plasma technology to cause tissue contraction, lips that become thin with age can be brought back to a more naturally fuller, youthful, shape, by lifting the lip margin and shortening the lip length between the nose and the upper lip without surgery! This lifting of the lips is genuinely a lovely discovery! Ask Dr. Nawada about it at your Consultation with him!

"Dr. Nawada is AWESOME!! Along with his staff. I had a BOTCHED breast reduction from a surgeon at Lakeland’s Watson Clinic in 2003. I was promised the moon and back and was left mutilated. I wasn’t the only one who went too this “so called plastic surgeon “ and received botched results. My breasts were so botched I would cry looking at them in the mirror. The scars were horrendous and hurt all the time. I couldn’t wear a bra, not that I needed one anymore bc all I was left with going from a 38HHH too barely A cups which were scars. I heard so many great things about Dr. Nawada so I went for a consultation 5 years later. He is very upfront and tells you like it is which I truly liked. Some take that as he doesn’t have a good bedside manner, but it’s they want things the way they want it not reasonable for the best results. Not only did he fix the scars which when he did it left my breast concave, but he put in appropriate size, shape and form of saline implants proportionate too my body. Along with the breast reconstruction he tandemly did an apron tummy tuck and gave me the cutest belly button ever. (I had weighed almost 300lbs in my teen years and lost over 100 leaving the skin too skin touching which was removed) All I can say is everything was perfect then and still too this day 10 years later I’m still loving the way I look. My daughter who is 21 went through this with me mind you she was only 12 at the time and now she has one breast 2 2 1/2 sizes smaller. Dr. Nawada examined her when she was 18 and told her too wait until she was 21 and come back and he will augment her breast too make them fuller and even. I appreciate his honesty and telling her too wait because most would have done it back when she was 18 and as he told her her breast will be about done growing around 21-22 keeping the need of an additional surgery if she were too have done at 18. She’s preparing soon too have her surgery and I feel SUPER COMFORTABLE AND SAFE putting my baby’s life and vanity in Dr. Nawada’s and his staffs hands. It doesn’t hurt either that his head Nurse/office director was a high school classmate of mine. If you want the BEST NAWADA AND ASSOCIATES is the place too go??!!"- A.S. / Google / Nov 25, 2018
"It has been 17 years, but was an exceptional experience. I wish Dr. Nawada was here in the Atlanta area...."- V.A. / Facebook / Jun 20, 2018
before and After Your J-Ablate
Before your procedure, at your initial consultation, you will fill out a Skin Evaluation Form and discuss with Dr. Nawada and his Nurse, your general health status and habits and determine what your aesthetic skin improvement goals are, and be recommended a clinical skin care program with suggested products for you.
Dr. Nawada highly recommends the use of the appropriate skin care products to prepare your skin in advance of your procedure. But also, using those products afterward to maintain your newly acquired beautiful results post-procedure is vital. At Nawada Plastic Surgery, we like the SkinCeuticals® mantra, " Correct" (previous damage). "Prevent" (signs of future damage) and "Protect" (healthy skin)."
After having J-Ablate™, you may experience swelling and redness of the treated areas. Avoiding the sun in the weeks following your procedure is critical. Healing takes approximately two weeks. Dr. Nawada and his Nursing Staff will provide you with specific post-ablative instructions and products to help your skin heal faster and optimize your results. (These are different healing products than the pre and post products).
At about three weeks following J-Ablate™, most patients are back to the regular wearing of makeup, although some pinkness can remain for up to 3 months. We will be with you as your healing progresses and help you to monitor your progress.
Is J-Ablate Right For Me?
Dr. Nawada recommends that J-Ablate™ only be performed on men and women of relatively fair skin, which on the Fitzpatrick Scale, are Fitzpatrick I to III. Typically, patients who have a darker complexion, such as Latino and African Americans. Fitzpatrick IV, V & VI, are not good candidates for this type of procedure, because skin with more melanin in it, has the potential for hyperpigmentation or scarring. However, there are other nonsurgical options available that may offer a better outcome for darker skin types. The use of appropriate skin care products, Sciton®'s BroadBand Light™ procedures (BBL™ and ForverYoungBBL™) and also, injectable neuromodulators such as BotoxCosmetic® or Dysport® and an appropriate HA Filler in the proper area of need, can also help give you a more amazing youthful look! Dr. Nawada will listen to your needs and discuss any of the alternative recommendations if needed.
