Aesthetic manufacturer Energist has introduced a new device that uses nitrogen gas to treat a variety of cosmetic and medical skin conditions.
According to the company, the NeoGen Evo device delivers a controlled pulse of nitrogen plasma to the skin, to stimulate a physiological response, without creating an open wound.
The company claims the stimulation of neocollagenisis within the epidermal and dermal layers provides improvement to the skin for more than a year.
The aesthetic indications include the treatment of striae, wrinkles, pigmented lesions, photodamaged skin and pore size reduction, while the medical indications include the reduction of active acne, scarring (acne, surgical and burns) and melasma.
Energist also says that the nitrogen plasma enables the increased uptake of topical drug therapies.
