Nitrogen Plasma Therapy
AgeJET is the latest advance in skin rejuvenation which gives you long lasting, natural results with a short recovery period.
AgeJET treats skin laxity, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation along with dermatological conditions such as active acne and scarring. Popular areas fore treatment are above the mouth (the bar code area) and loose, delicate skin above and below the eye. The most dramatic results are achieved when the whole face and neck are treated, giving a dynamic overall rejuvenated and refreshed complexion.
Traditionally we use methods which remove the top layer of skin to promote regeneration of new cells. Strong chemical peels and C02 Laser resurfacing treatments need careful management over a long period which is inconvenient to many patients. AgeJET uses nitrogen based plasma which creates thermal injury at a deeper level, keeping the top layer in tact. Cell proliferation is triggered and a few weeks after treatment the renewal process starts to present itself.
At Nakedhealth we have a well trained, experienced team of practitioners who work alongside Mr David Gateley. Your skin needs are as individual as you are and the treatment plan we recommend will take this and your lifestyle into account when devising recommending your skin rejuvenation journey. The team work collaboratively and you may see more than one person depending on the intensity of the treatment.
Your skin will respond more quickly if it has been well cared for in advance It is advised that you consult one of our practitioners for a suggested home care regime before embarking on an ageJET treatment.
How safe is Agejet?
AgeJET is safe and effective. Various settings can be used for different strength treatments. The treatment can be undertaken more gently and slowly at lower settings.
How Long Does the AgeJET treatment take?
You will have had an initial consultation with one of our specialist practitioners, to ensure your suitability for treatment. You will usually have a numbing cream applied to maximise your comfort during the procedure, this takes 30 minutes. The whole face takes about 30-45 minutes and small areas will be around 20 minutes.
What Strength Treatment Will I Need?
Low Energy – general skin improvement, noticeably fine lines, wrinkles and dark circles. Acne bacteria is diminished. Your skin serums will absorb efficiently which will further contribute to a successful outcome. Your skin texture will be improved and there is little downtime. Several treatments may be needed.
Medium Energy – noticeable improvement to wrinkles, lines and age spots. You may experience redness, swelling and tightness for up to 5 days. You will be advised to moisturise several times a day. Your skin may darken and lightly peel. Best results will be seen after a course of 2-3 sessions.
High Energy – the results are on a par with an ablative treatment but the risk of complications is considerably less as is the downtime. Your complexion will be significantly improved, smoother, clearer and tighter. You may experience redness, swelling and tightness for up to 10 days. Your skin will darken temporarily and will noticeably peel. You will need to moisturise your skin regularly but will be able to resume normal activity and wear make up after day 6. One treatment should be enough.
What is the recovery time?
This will vary depending on the condition of your skin and the strength of your treatment. Between 4-10 days should be planned for but you will not be restricted to home. This will be explained at your initial consultation.
