NeoGen Plasma Skin Regeneration (PSR) uses ultra-high radio frequency to ionize medical grade nitrogen gas from a pressurized cylinder, creating nitrogen plasma in the nozzle, which delivers a controlled pulse of plasma thermal energy (circa 120C for 15 milliseconds at 4.0J).
The pressurized pulse of nitrogen plasma purges oxygen from the treatment area, preventing charring of the skin. The level of energy delivered to the skin determines the depth of penetration & associated levels of tightening, resurfacing and regeneration.
What is Plasma?
Plasma is the fourth state of matter. Plasma is similar to a gas but with many of its atoms broken into electrically charged particles, both negatively-charged electrons and positively-charged ions. Examples of plasma include lightning, the Aurora Borealis and fluorescent tube lamps.
What is Special About Nitrogen Plasma?
Nitrogen plasma is a source of thermal energy which is highly conductive and readily permeates skin. Heat released from the plasma has a profound effect at and beneath the skin’s surface, causing thermal disruption to the whole architecture of the skin, penetrating as deep as the reticular dermis.
The depth of nitrogen plasma penetration is influenced by the sk
When the plasma pulse impacts the skin, the thermal energy locked up in the plasma is released, causing a localized instantaneous heating of the skin and immediate tissue contraction.
The treated stratum corneum and epidermal layers always remain intact, acting as an insulator during treatment and a natural biological dressing post treatment. This natural barrier provides optimal healing conditions and significantly reduces the risk of infections and complications.
At higher energy settings the epidermis and upper dermis are shed after 3 to 5 days. At lower ener
Unlike other technologies, the whole of the skin’s surface and architecture is treated, leaving no islands of untreated skin. Regeneration of the reticular architecture of the upper dermis can be achieved using either a single high-energy or multiple low-energy treatments.
