WHAT IS SKIN RESURFACING?
For those of you who are familiar with this popular skin procedure, you’ll know that skin resurfacing is usually performed using an ablative or non-ablative laser. The main aim is to remove the top layers of skin to help improve its overall texture and tone, producing a more even and radiant appearance.
Many skin resurfacing treatments are carried out using a handheld device that is moved over the affected area(s) of the complexion, emitting powerful beams of light which penetrate the skin at the required depth.
WHAT CONDITIONS DOES SKIN RESURFACING TREAT?
You may be someone who has used skin resurfacing to eliminate a number of common skin concerns, including: age spots, minor scars / acne scars, fine lines, deeper-set wrinkles, enlarged pores, lax skin, pigmentation and warts. And, you may have been recommended skin resurfacing as part of an effective anti-ageing treatment plan. However, it can also produce great results on younger skin with an uneven tone, signs of sun damage and noticeable skin irregularities such as acne / acne scars.
WHY USE NEOGEN PLASMA?
As mentioned, skin resurfacing treatments usually work by removing the top layers of skin, and will often target pigmented cells. However, Neogen Plasma is different. This cutting-edge treatment uses state-of-the-art technology which works in a similar way to ablative lasers, which don’t necessarily remove skin. Instead of powerful light beams, intense pulses of radiofrequency energy turns medical grade nitrogen gas into a plasma state, which is then delivered to the skin. This turns to heat when absorbed by the tissues which triggers a natural healing response that repairs damaged skin cells. In addition, fibrous tissue will contract causing the skin to tighten and for new collagen to be produced. This process will then rejuvenate the complexion for a naturally firmer, fuller, fresher look.
Neogen Plasma offers a number of benefits that other skin resurfacing treatments do not. As skin cells can repair and regenerate without necessarily being expelled, many patients do not experience flaky skin as a side effect. The addition of a stronger internal structure means the results can last longer than other anti-ageing treatments, with patients often enjoying their new look for a year or more. This treatment can be used on various areas of the face and body, and is even gentle enough to address delicate areas, such as around the eyes. It can target a range of concerns at the same time, and helps the skin to form a natural protective barrier for effective healing.
