What is AgeJET PlasmaRejuvenation?

The AgeJET device converts nitrogen gas into energy, which is then transferred through the handpiece using controlled, ultra-high radiofrequency to penetrate and heat the tissue of the dermis to stimulate new elastin and collagen growth while removing damaged collagen.

AgeJET offers significant improvements when compared to older resurfacing technology. In the past these treatment often caused unwanted side effects such as changes in skin texture, pigmentation, skin whitening, and even scarring. Skin regeneration using PlasmaResurfacing enables results that are more predictable and safer for the skin’s structure.

PlasmaRejuvenation treats the entire structure of your skin. Other technologies target certain parts of your skin as a means of protecting tissue from damage, or because they are designed to treat specific skin damage or aging concerns. Because PlasmaResurfacing treats all of your skin, your wrinkles, elasticity, scars, pigmentation, and more can be simultaneously treated by this one device.

AgeJET never breaks or damages the skin’s surface. Lasers and other treatments work by ablating or vaporizing the surface of the skin to trigger healing responses. CO2 lasers, for example, can have significant complications and downtime. Instead, this unique form of energy allows controlled rapid heating over treatment areas, stimulating collagen remodeling and restoring skin elasticity—all while leaving the overlying epidermis intact.

There’s a three-fold benefit to AgeJET skin resurfacing process of treating without creating open wounds:
1. There’s less downtime.
2. Over time, your healthy upper skin layer provides protection as the deeper, treated tissue underneath is entirely remodeled during the physiological process of regeneration.
3. Non-ablated skin means less chance of infection and a safer, less stressful overall experience.

AgeJET is FDA-cleared for general dermatological conditions. Worldwide, over 50,000 of this type of skin treatment have been performed in a span of ten years, and over thirty Institutional Review Board independent clinical studies have been completed.

Another major advantage of AgeJET treatments is that discomfort and pain are notably reduced and there is a shorter recovery period, typically between
four to ten days, depending on the intensity of the treatment.

• Cherry angiomas, xanthomas, xanthelasma, solar lentigo, and benign moles
• Crow’s feet
• Freckles
• Stretch marks
• Scars, including Cesarean, breast implant, and acne
• Inguinal crease
• External vaginal revitalization

Additionally, skin feels rehydrated, firmer, and rejuvenated. With higher-energy treatments, you may experience the closest one can get to a face-lift without the

surgery. AgeJET EYE delivers non-surgical blepharoplasty.

• The lowest energy settings increase skin permeability, which aids topical treatment effectiveness and controls bacteria to improve active acne.
• Low to medium energy limits social downtime and is ideal for maintenance. Substantial improvement to signs of aging, wrinkles, lines, and age spots can be expected with even just one treatment.
• High energy treatments deliver results comparable to fully ablative treatments, but with less social downtime than ablative treatments and limited medical downtime. You’ll receive the benefits of lower energy treatments, plus tighter skin and contouring.

Ideal candidates have light-to-medium skin tones. The AgeJET procedure dramatically improves the appearance of your skin, regardless of age.

Key Benefits and Typical Results

AgeJET is ideal for treating small areas that cannot be treated with other techniques. It is particularly suitable for treating the perioral and periorbital areas around the eyes.

The energy output is customizable, so you and your practitioner can decide to use a lower energy setting over several treatments, or fewer treatments with higher energy, depending on your preferences for recovery periods, and your goals.

AgeJET is equipped with a sophisticated cooling system capable of cooling, hydrating, and restoring the skin during the same treatment. The cooling system avoids and minimizes risks and unwanted side effects.

AgeJET facilitates treatment of a wide range of conditions: pigmented lesions, acne scars, sagging skin, deep or superficial wrinkles.

The power released has a uniform impact across the treated area, for an even effect over the whole structure of the skin. Because it is not fractional energy, AgeJET treatments do not leave any part of the tissue untreated. Your entire skin architecture is enveloped to so you won’t have patches or lines of demarcation, and while your specific skin concerns are addressed, you’ll benefit from all the additional anti-aging results as well.

AgeJET is proven to be an effective skin tightening method as it channels energy to the skin tissue. This energy is converted into heat to penetrate easily and painlessly into the deeper layers of skin and stimulate the natural processes of cell regeneration. The heat stimulates the fibroblasts to produce new collagen and elastin, and at the same time causes existing collagen fibers to contract.

AgeJET releases energy in a series of precisely controlled pulses. The heat generated by the handpiece penetrates deeply, leaving the epidermis completely intact.

AgeJET triggers a neocollagenesis process which continues up to a year after treatment. Treatment results in natural, healthy, firmer, younger, lustrous skin.

A consultation – always complimentary – is required to discuss the level of energy and number of treatments which best match your goals.

During the two weeks before your appointment, avoid tanning and sun exposure. For seven days before your appointment, do not use exfoliants or topical tretinoins, like retinol, in the treatment area. Rigorously moisturize your skin.

For your appointment, please do not wear makeup. Men should shave. Moisturize your skin. Remember a case for your contact lenses, or wear your eyeglasses instead. Bring a hat (clean, and one you don’t mind getting petroleum jelly on) and sunglasses to protect your delicate skin on the way home.

45 to 60 minutes is generally required to treat the entire face. Treatments may be as short as five to ten minutes for smaller areas. Treatment times may vary, however, depending on the individual application, the thickness of the skin, and patient sensitivity. You’ll receive a topical numbing cream to apply 30 to 40 minutes before your treatment. For higher-energy treatments, an injectable local anesthetic may be used. A gel will be applied to protect your hairline and eyebrows. If any hair is singed during treatment, it will grow back. You may hear odd noises! If this is uncomfortable, we can provide you with earplugs.

You’ll leave our office with pink or red skin, protected by a layer of petroleum jelly. Depending on the strength of the treatment, and how well your skin is previously conditioned, the downtime will vary. You may see a “bronzing effect” which will disappear within a few days. It is typically for the patient to experience four to ten days of social downtime.

Your skin will be more permeable post-treatment, allowing for increased efficacy of topical skin care which can speed healing while physiological improvements from your treatment proceed.

Keep your skin moist with petroleum jelly. You’ll be advised upon when you can begin shaving and exercising. Although there are no open wounds, with higher energies skin may peel significantly for several days after the treatment.

Immediately, you’ll see tighter skin over the treated area. Over several weeks to month, new skin surfaces as the regeneration effects progress.

Result will vary depending upon your treatment regimen and other factors. Clinical studies have shown that the neocollagenesis effect can endure for more than a year after the treatment, so results are long-lasting.

Your treatment plan will be determined during your consultation, based upon your goals, comfortable energy level, areas to be treated, and condition of your skin before treatment. Generally, one to six treatments are recommended.

Prior to treatment, you can boost skin resurfacing results with IPL, and after treatment, your skin will be more permeable, meaning products and other treatments of interest may be more effective. Our experts will have recommendations for you, should you be interested, after analyzing your skin.

The states of matter are commonly known as solid, liquid, and gas. Under certain conditions of increased energy application, there’s a fourth state—matter with electrons which wander around freely among the nuclei of the atoms. It’s around us in our daily lives—naturally in lightning and the sun’s energy, and in man-made applications such as neon lights and fluorescent light bulbs.

AgeJET technology delivers this matter through an ultra-high frequency generator which converts inert nitrogen gas into activated ionized gas, the ideal basis for this skin therapy. This energy does not damage the skin barrier, but does cause the layers underneath to undergo regeneration, treating multiple skin issues simultaneously. Surface skin is not damaged as with ablative technologies.

AgeJET energy is not “fractionated” to cover only part of the skin. Instead the entire structure of the skin is treated, leading to broad-ranging improvement throughout dermal layers, and to primary and secondary anti-aging of the entire skin
