The Neogen PSR is a new skin resurfacing treatment that first damages skin cells which then encourages regrowth and regeneration, firming the entire architecture of the skin and allowing new and fresher skin to show through.
WHAT IS NEOGEN PSR?
A state-of-the-art, exciting new skin rejuvenation resurfacing treatment that uses plasma energy to deliver uniform heating the the skin’s architecture, results in immediate collagen contraction and skin tightening effects. Anti-aging aficionados may have already heard by now, that instead of using a more traditional energy source such as lasers and light, plasma energy, also known as the fourth state of matter (the other three being solid, liquid and gas), is activated ionized gas which is generated from inert nitrogen gas via an ultra-high frequency generator in the Neogen System. High energy treatments are used to achieve dramatic skin tightening and facial contouring results (think of it as mini-facelifts) while lower energy treatments are targeted at erasing earlier signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles, dull skin and age-related pigmentation.
HOW DOES THE NEOGEN MAKE ONE LOOK YOUNGER?
Traditional lasers and light-based technologies require a chromophore such as pigment, blood or water to work. Neogen PSR provides a controlled, uniform heating across the whole skin without damaging the outermost layers. Higher settings can be used to provide deep dermal heating, which we know produces collagen stimulation and at the same time, superficial resurfacing reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, firming skin from the inside out.
This is also touted a skin brightening treatment, reversing skin discolouration as well as more pesky issues such as actinic keratosis, seborrheic keratosis and even acne scarring. Obviously, high treatment settings are going to come with some downtime. At the SW1 Clinic, doctors have mitigated this by going the extra mile with thorough application of a special numbing cream and painting of skin with a special hydrating mist, which keeps redness and pain at bay.
WHERE CAN THE NEOGEN PSR BE DONE?
This treatment is done on the face, around the eyes (Neogen Plasma Eyelift), as well as the neck.
