Neogen™ Plasma Skin Regeneration for Face & Eyes
Energist’s NeoGen™ PSR device (Previously Portrait® PSR) is the first non-laser technology approved by the FDA and clinically proven to perform skin resurfacing and regeneration using plasma energy.
As the pioneer in Plasma technology, the NEOGEN EVO Plasma utilises a unique nitrogen plasma energy to rejuvenate the skin, restore elasticity, and stimulate collagen production without much downtime.
The NeoGen Plasma helps to:
- Reduce pore size and tightens skin
- Improves overall skin tone and skin texture
- Reduce fine lines and wrinkles
- Treat acne and acne scarring
- Reduce stretch marks
What is Plasma?
You’ve learnt about the 3 states of matter:
In the 1920’s, a 4th state was described by a scientist as Plasma – however, this 4th state of matter does not exist naturally.
Plasma is artificially generated by heating or subjecting a neutral gas to a strong electromagnetic field to the point where an ionized gaseous substance becomes increasingly electrically conductive. [source: wikipedia]
How does the NeoGen Plasma Treatment work?
The Energist Neogen™ Plasma EVO uses Nitrogen Plasma, due to its unique properties as a very efficient method of transferring energy. It works by delivering millisecond pulses of nitrogen-based plasma to the skin via a handpiece.
Within the handpiece, an ultra-high-frequency (UHF) generator excites inert nitrogen gas, which is converted into activated ionised gas called plasma. This plasma emerges from the handpiece in controlled pulses, and rapid heating of tissue occurs as it gives up its unique thermal energy to tissue.
The energy delivered produces a heating action that works at the skin’s surface to remove old photo-damaged epidermal cells, and below the skin surface or dermis to promote collagen growth.
The treated photo-damaged layers undergo a controlled thermal modification (collagen remodelling, skin tightening, etc.) without any damage to the skin surface. This intact skin surface creates a natural dressing to provide protection and speed up healing.
At high energies the first layer of the skin can have slight peeling (after a few days), and after that, a new, healthier skin layer is formed.
What makes the NeoGen Evo Plasma effective?
The NeoGen™ Plasma produces rejuvenation and skin tightening results effectively because it can treat all layers of the skin. The doctor is able to control the depth of treatment by adjusting the level of energy delivered to the skin.
Treating the entire skin structure ensures optimal results as the entire surface is regenerated with collagen production and remodelling.
At lower energy levels, The NeoGen™ Plasma targets the epidermis (first layer of the skin) to tighten the skin. This results in pore reduction, wrinkle reduction, stretch marks reduction, and skin brightening.
What can the Neogen Evo Plasma be used for?
The NeoGen Plasma can be used on both eyes and face to treat and improve the appearance for a number of issues:
- Skin brightening
- Upper face skin tightening and lift without needles
- Early Jowling
- Acne and acne scarring
- Stretch marks
- Large Pores
- Fine Neck Lines
- Droopy Eyes
- Wrinkles around and under eyes
- Some cases of dark eye circles
Because the NeoGen Plasma is entirely safe to use around the eye areas, it is one of the most popular choices in our clinic for a non-invasive upper eyelid lift. It is also known as the ‘Non-surgical Double Eyelid Procedure’, as the NeoGen Plasma helps tightens the skin around the upper eyelid, and makes your double eyelid more prominent. It also helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles under and around the eye.
Clinical studies show significant tightening – Mean 22% improvement in upper eyelid tightening (JOCD 7, 169-179, 2008)
The NeoGen Plasma can also be used in conjunction with Mizu’s ProYellow Laser for further brightening of the under eye area.
Another popular treatment choice of the NeoGen Plasma is the reduction of pores very effectively due to the procedure’s unique heating profile. Downtime from the procedure can vary from zero to 3 days depending on power settings.
Is the Neogen Plasma Skin Regeneration Treatment painful?
It may sound loud, but the procedure is nearly painless even without numbing cream. With a layer of numbing cream for the high-powered procedures, patients usually do not feel anything except for a warm sensation.
Is there downtime for the Neogen Plasma Treatment?
Immediately after the procedure, there can be a slight pinkish flush over the treated area. One may experience mild dryness over the treated areas for 1-2 days.
For treatments done with higher-powered settings, there can slight flakiness of the skin on the 3rd or 4th day.
Make-up can be applied immediately post-procedure as there is no damage to the outer layer of the skin.
How many sessions will I need?
Depending on the area to be treated and the issue to be treated for, the number of sessions can vary.
On average, clinical studies have shown that at least 3-4 sessions of the NeoGen™ Plasma can achieve satisfactory improvement in texture and tightening.
Sessions should be done minimally 3-4 weeks apart.
Results are accumulative and becomes more obvious with each treatment.
