By engaging a unique nitrogen plasma technology to provide consistent, controlled rapid heating over treated areas, NeoGen stimulates collagen remodeling in deep tissue with significant tightening of the overlying skin. Unlike traditional ablative technologies, NeoGen does not cause vaporization or charring of the skin. With the intact skin acting as a natural barrier, this unique treatment profile of NeoGen allows the photo-damaged layers to undergo controlled thermal modification to promote rapid healing. Combined with a well curated post treatment skincare regime, there cannot be a more superior dressing for the skin than your own skin cells.
How Does NeoGen Work?
NeoGen utilizes plasma energy, also known as the “4th state of matter” to bring about its dermatological benefits. When ultra-high frequency RF is combined with inert nitrogen gas in the hand-piece, a highly energized state known as Plasma energy is generated. Non-fractionated and non-chromophore dependent by nature, Plasma energy allows uniform absorption and adequate heating of targeted tissue without disrupting the epidermis or outer layer of skin. The plasma energy emitted from the NeoGen system is delivered in controlled pulses with great precision, ensuring uniform heating of deep tissue which in turn stimulates neocollagenesis and neoelastogenesis, rebuilding new stores to replace old damaged collagen and elastin with no island of untreated skin left behind.
What Are the Major Benefits of NeoGen?
“One of the key selling features of NeoGen is the extremely high safety margin when applied to both the upper and lower eyelids, areas that bear the brunt of aging and often known to be tricky to treat. NeoGen offers all round periorbital rejuvenation in a safe and effective manner without any risk of injury to the eyes.”
A fully customizable system which offers great versatility, NeoGen allows high, moderate or low energy treatment choices, tailored to suit the specific needs and lifestyle of each individual patient. At lower energy levels, the technology works well on wrinkles, fine lines, pore size, stretch marks and even Actinic Keratoses, a form of pre-cancerous skin lesions. At higher energy levels, the skin rejuvenating prowess of NeoGen is more pronounced, improving the appearance of photo-damaged skin, acne scarring and deeper wrinkles. We are also talking about more effective skin tightening, improved facial contours and all round skin rejuvenation for matured skins.
The unique thermal profile of NeoGen allows it to tackle a wide variety of skin conditions effectively with manageable downtime. Some of its outstanding skin benefits are as follow:
- NeoGen Plasma Eyelift
Your eyes aren’t just a window to the soul, they can also be a telltale sign of aging! To begin with, the skin around your eyes is incredibly thin and can easily be damaged by any number of things including habitual rubbing, constant tugging while applying eye makeup, lack of moisture, one too many sleepless nights, and most commonly the natural loss of collagen with age. Very often, the upper eyelid skin droops down with age, and bedroom eyes are no longer sexy when they are a tad too heavy. The levator palperbrae superioris muscle is responsible for lifting the eyelid and as you aged, that muscle can stretch and, as a result, cause the eyelid to fall. Coupled with the lost in elasticity of the surrounding skin around the eyes, you’ll be cursed with a tired looking gaze 24/7.
The NeoGen Plasma Eyelift provides exceptional all round peri-orbital rejuvenation to our aging peepers, tackling droopy eyelids, dark eye circles, fine under-eye lines and pesky Crow’s Feet.With its high safety margin without any risk of injury to the eyes, it can be applied directly to the upper and lower eyelids, as well as the wider periorbital region— areas that are often difficult to treat, as other technologies failed to deliver consistent results or cannot be safely applied to treat these sensitive areas effectively.
- NeoGen Plasma Micropeel
Either as a standalone treatment or paired with the NeoGen Plasma Eyelift, by improving the appearance of stubborn pigmentation and surface imperfections such as large pores, fine lines, and uneven skin tone, the NeoGen Plasma Micropeel has it all covered. Besides being deeply exfoliating to restore glow to tired looking complexions by allowing the younger and healthier looking skin cells beneath to come through, the controlled pulses of plasma energy actually initiates cellular renewal and self-repair, giving you more youthful and supple looking skin that you can’t stop yourself from touching!
- NeoGen Plasma Skin Renew
This extremely efficient skin renewal treatment is by no means playing second fiddle to the more familiar fractional CO2 lasers, often touted as the gold standard of resurfacing procedures. By diminishing the appearance of unwanted blemishes such as age spots, sunspots and any surface scarring including deeper wrinkles, acne scars, old surgical scars and even stretch marks, NeoGen Plasma Skin Renew can radically transform your complexion, especially when done over a series of 4 to 6 sessions with relatively low downtime. Visible results including appreciable skin tightening and subtle lifting are not transient, as clinical studies demonstrated long lasting effects with intense fibroblast activity supporting continued neocollagenesis and reduced deposition of elastin material for more than 12 months post treatment.
How Is the Procedure Like?
To enhance patient comfort, a thin layer of numbing cream is applied onto the skin prior to treatment and left on for 10 to 15minutes. A soothing Freia Oxy-Peptide Bio-Facial Mask is subsequently applied to optimally hydrate the skin prior to your NeoGen Plasma treatment. The NeoGen Plasma treatment is often described as a warm blast of air with a prickling sensation that is largely bearable, even when treating sensitive areas such as the upper and lower eyelids. Immediately post treatment, the treated area(s) may appear a little flushed or red.
What Kind Of Downtime Do I Expect?
There may be some redness and skin sensitivity over the upper and lower eyelids immediately post treatment. This usually resolves within the next 24 to 48 hours. Depending on the settings which governs the intensity of treatment, there may be mild skin flaking over the next couple of days. If you have an important event scheduled, we would recommend you to inform and discuss with your attending doctor on the kind of downtime that is acceptable to you, and preferable to have the treatment at least a week prior to minimize the risk of these common side effects.
What Kind of Post Treatment Care Should I Be Aware Of?
It is important to avoid unnecessary sun exposure and be adequately protected from any. Wear a broad spectrum sunscreen of SPF 50 or more to protect your skin during both the healing phase and for several months after treatment. When outdoors under direct sunlight, the use of sunglasses, an umbrella or a wide brimmed-hat should be considered for added protection.
Get your doctor to review and assess your usual skin care regime. Following treatment, harsh ingredients such as retinol and fruit acids (AHAs/BHAs), commonly found in many anti-aging products, should be laid off for at least a week. Your skin may feel dryer than usual, keep it well hydrated at all times with a good moisturizer. If you are using products to tone down the redness, opt for non-comedogenic mineral makeup which will allow your skin to breathe and prevent pores from clogging during the healing phase.
How Many Sessions Do I Need?
Each person’s skin is unique, but clinical studies suggest that for most patients looking for improved texture and skin tightening with notice appreciable results after 4 to 6 sessions done regularly at monthly intervals. One of the major advantages to this treatment is the ease and precision to specifically target the upper, lower eyelid and wider periorbital region, areas which bear the brunt and display the first signs of aging, and typically difficult to treat without invasive surgery.
