Newport Beach NeoGen Plasma
NeoGen Plasma Skin Regeneration is a non-surgical treatment that is not like other lasers. That’s because it is not a laser. It is a non-ablative energy that converts nitrogen gas into pure nitrogen plasma. The thermal energy from the NeoGen Plasma delivers heat deep into the dermis to stimulate your skin’s fibroblasts. This process strengthens the dermal fascial network, the skin’s underlying foundational support. As we age, our skin thins, and we experience skin laxity. For most people, this shows up first in the lower face, jowls, and neck area. Surgery, like a deep plane facelift, restores the youthfulness to the face by lifting and repositioning the SMAS (superficial musculoaponeurotic system).
Unlike other facial rejuvenation devices like Morpheus8 and CO2 lasers, NeoGen Lift is not a point and shoot technology. Results are produced by four main factors: the NeoGen Plasma technology, the technician’s skill and understanding of facial aging patterns, the patient’s skin quality, and pre and post treatment protocols like maintaining skin hydration.
Though the NeoGen Plasma treatment does not produce the same results as a deep plane facelift, it is able to produce significant improvement without a single incision because it improves the underlying architecture of the skin. It increases volume and tightens the connective tissue in the dermal fascial network. This is the key to younger skin. Not even surgery like a deep plane facelift or eyelift can improve the integrity of the skin. By making the skin more like its younger self, it improves skin laxity.
First and foremost, NeoGen Plasma is safe and effective because treatments are customized to the patient's skin type and aging concerns. NeoGen Lift technology is perfect for the 30-year-old who wants to prevent the signs of aging, the 40-50-year-old who is starting to see the signs of aging, and the 60-plus-year-old who only sees signs of aging! One of our AestheticMD providers accesses your skin's aging process and designs a treatment protocol that will achieve the best results.
AestheticsMD is the only provider to offer the NeoGen Plasma treatment, our signature procedure that targets total skin regeneration for the face and body. We offer non-surgical face and neck lifts, eye lifts, as well as all-over body tightening and skin regeneration. With NeoGen Plasma Newport Beach patients can expect benefits that include:
Plasma skin tightening can reduce skin laxity in virtually any area of the face and body, including the face, jowls, neck, arms, abdomen, legs, and hands. Compared to surgical skin tightening, NeoGen Plasma delivers natural-looking results with both immediate and gradual improvements to your skin's elasticity and thickness. The heat delivered via thermal energy causes the skin to instantly contract as well as induces an ongoing increase in collagen production and skin cell regeneration. As a result, you will notice continuous improvement for up to two years after treatment.
NeoGen Plasma skin tightening applications include:

One of the primary places we begin to notice signs of aging is often the area around the eyes. As skin becomes thinner and more lax, we may notice concerns like crow's feet, sagging, undereye bags, heavy lids, or dark circles. NeoGen Plasma mitigates all of these concerns by tightening and brightening the delicate skin around the eyes, delivering a more youthful and energized appearance. For patients who wear makeup, refined eye contours allow for easier application and an enhanced overall look.
Fine lines and wrinkles can appear anywhere on the body. With non-surgical treatments that penetrate from your skin's surface to its deepest layers, NeoGen Plasma in Newport Beach revives the sturdiness of the skin's structure. Among other areas, NeoGen Plasma can diminish or eliminate:

Surface skin concerns like sun damage, age spots, and other pigmentation issues can detract from your complexion's youthfully luminous appearance. NeoGen Plasma causes controlled damage to your skin, causing its outer layer to slough away, taking sun spots and other irregularities with it. As your skin heals from the plasma treatment, you are left with a fresh, healthy complexion. Because each treatment is customized to the patient’s skin type, we can target and improve pigment without risk to the pigment cell. For darker skin types, pre and post-treatment with hydroquinone or another bleaching cream is recommended. NeoGen Plasma Candidates
NeoGen Plasma offers exceptional non-surgical results for almost all patients seeking a solution to skin laxity, textural issues, pigmentation problems, acne, or fine lines and wrinkles. This state-of-the-art technology is safe for all skin types on the Fitzpatrick Scale. Patients who are pregnant or breastfeeding, on Accutane, have certain medical conditions, or have had a previous reaction to plasma or other energy-based treatments may not be candidates for NeoGen Plasma. During your consultation, one of our AestheticMD providers will perform a full assessment to determine your candidacy for this treatment and recommend alternative therapies if needed.
Your customized NeoGen Plasma treatment begins in the consultation with a full evaluation of your facial aging and origins of laxity. This is important in designing the energy delivery pattern as well as customizing the energy settings. Your provider will also ask questions about your goals and discuss your medical history to ensure that NeoGen Plasma is the best treatment for your needs. You will have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have about your treatment, how you can prepare, and what to expect during your recovery.
If you are considering plasma treatment, you should avoid sun exposure and all sunless tanning methods for a minimum of four weeks before your NeoGen Plasma appointment, as well as Botox and other neurotoxins for two weeks and dermal fillers for one month. You will also need to wait until you are fully healed to undergo these or other procedures. At AestheticsMD, we can help you schedule your Newport Beach NeoGen Plasma appointment and other treatments for a seamless and synergistic experience.

Three to four days before your treatment, begin to hydrate with water and electrolytes. Hydration enhances the results of your NeoGen Plasma by allowing the body to absorb the Plasma energy. We recommend no alcohol the night before treatment or coffee and other caffeinated products on the morning of treatment, as those can dehydrate the skin.
Two days before your NeoGen treatment, you will come into the office for photos and a 30-minute treatment to stimulate oxygen and nutrients to the cells. On the day of your procedure, your specialist will apply a topical numbing cream to the target area to ensure your most comfortable experience. While the anesthetic takes effect, your specialist will adjust the machine's settings according to your needs.
Once you are ready, they will use a handheld device to administer the nitrogen plasma to your skin. While you will experience a warming and slight snapping sensation, most patients find NeoGen treatment comfortable. A NeoGen session can take anywhere from thirty minutes to over an hour, depending on the size of the treatment area. Treatment for the whole face typically takes 45 minutes to an hour. We then apply a CO2 lift mask to your face to increase oxygen and blood flow to the treated area. Before you leave, we apply a soothing moisturizer to your skin like Aquaphor. You will be free to leave our office and return to your day immediately after treatment.
While you will be able to return to regular daily activities, excluding exercise, immediately after your NeoGen Plasma treatment, you should expect a healing period for your skin. We refer to this healing period as social recovery, meaning you will be comfortable going to the grocery store, running errands, and returning to work but not attending a major social event like a wedding. Depending on the depth of your plasma treatment, you should expect a social downtime of 3-7 days. For the first few days, your skin will be red and tender. You will need to follow your doctor's instructions closely, keeping your treated skin clean and hydrated with Aquaphor or a similar product and plenty of fluid intake. Your treated skin will begin to darken before sloughing away to reveal fresh new skin beneath. We recommend no exercise for five days following treatment to optimize the growth factors stimulated in treatment. It is important to stay out of the sun for at least seven days following treatment.
NeoGen Plasma results are both immediate and gradual. The thermal energy delivers instantly tighter skin while stimulating increased local collagen production. Patients describe feeling like their skin has been “shrink-wrapped”. This enhanced regeneration process will continue to improve your skin's elasticity, tone, and texture for as long as six months and up to two years.
Based on your goals and the condition of your skin, your personalized treatment plan may include anywhere between one and six treatments to achieve optimal results. As always, protecting your skin from sun exposure can prevent future damage and optimize the quality and longevity of your results.
