NeoGen Plasma in Houston

  • Smooth wrinkles & scarring

Unlike traditional lasers, NeoGen™ Plasma is chromophore dependent, and it can therefore safely and effectively treat patients of various ethnicities.

What does NeoGen do?

Just one NeoGen PSR treatment will significantly improve skin quality. It is unique in its ability to safely treat the upper and lower eyelids resulting it what many people describe as a “non-surgical blepharoplasty”. Unlike laser procedures which require corneal shields, the plasma energy delivered to the eyelid tissue does not penetrate through to the cornea making this incredibly safe. The results are consistent and dramatic leaving you with a natural more refreshed appearance.

NeoGen Benefits

Resurfaces the full surface of the skin, treating common concerns such as:

  • Uneven pigmentation and age spots

  • Fine lines

  • Deep wrinkles

  • Acne scars

  • Laxity

  • Loose eyelid skin (upper and lower)

NeoGen FAQ’s

Plasma energy is derived from excited nitrogen gas and this plasma is different than treatments involving blood plasma. During your NeoGen PSR treatment, the surface of the skin is heated up with a device that delivers energy pulses that appear to singe the skin’s surface. Immediately after the treatment, your face appears red, and then it will change to brown over a few days and a thin layer will peel off. NeoGen PSR plasma preserves the skin’s outer layer, which acts as a natural protective dressing until your new healthy skin forms over 7-10 days. Surface improvements will appear quickly, and deep dermal collagen remodeling continues for months to years. The treatment takes just an hour, but the results are “permanent” (as you naturally continue to age).

2 weeks prior to the treatment

  • Avoid excessive sun exposure or tanning for at least two weeks prior to treatment.
  • Use a Sun Protection Factor (SPF) 30+ zinc oxide or titanium dioxide based sunblock.  This should be applied thoroughly to all areas intended for treatment.
  • Additional sun protective measures such as a wide-brimmed hat, sunglasses and sun-protective clothing will help to protect your skin before and following your treatment.
  • Exfoliates (scrubs, washes and other treatments that remove the outermost part of the skin) should not be used in the week prior to treatment.
  • If you have just started using topical tretinoins, such as cosmetics containing Retin A in the last month, you will be advised to discontinue use.

During treatment

  • Moistened gauze and/or eye shields may cover your eyes.
