Why is NeoGen a good option for skin tightening?
NeoGen treats the whole skin architecture – the whole surface and all tissues beneath the surface are modified, as opposed to radiofrequency microneedling and fractional lasers which only treat a proportion of the skin tissue. The treatment delivers controlled and predictable thermal energy to the skin, meaning treatments are non-ablative and carry a predictable recovery process. Plus, NeoGen treatments are tailorable – by varying the energy and number of pulses, the practitioner can provide a bespoke treatment to meet the patient’s results and recovery needs.
What does NeoGen treat?
In addition to general skin tightening and regeneration, NeoGen can treat:
How much downtime is there?
It depends on the type of treatment and the amount of nitrogen plasma energy delivered to the skin. The company says downtime ranges from 1-10 days, with patients back to normal from day 5 onwards.
Can NeoGen do a non-surgical blepharoplasty?
Yes. It can be used to tighten and regenerate loose, crepey skin around the eyes. Pulses of plasma can be delivered directly to the eyelid and surrounding area without the need for ocular guards.
What are the different types of NeoGen treatment?
There are three NeoGen Plasma machines:
- NeoGen SPA – Safely and effectively treats all skin tones by performing multiple treatments at a lower energy level. It is ideal for those wanting to experience significant improvements in skin tone, texture, and appearance of wrinkles, with very little downtime.
- NeoGen EVO – Can treat the whole body with a broad range of energy levels to tailor toindividual needs. EVO targets both aesthetic and dermatological conditions such as acne scarring, wrinkles, pigmented lesions and viral papillomata.
- NeoGen PSR – Allows practitioners to deliver the machine’s full energy range with functionality for deeper penetration into the skin. This is the best option for severe concerns and provides transformative results.
Is NeoGen safe for dark skin?
Yes, but only on the lowest energy level settings of each machine/ type of treatment. Treatments are tailored to the individual to ensure safety on darker skin tones.
Does NeoGen hurt?
Topical anaesthetic cream will be applied is necessary, depending on the type of treatment being performed, how much energy is being delivered into the skin, and the number of energy pulses.
