FDA-approved skin-resurfacing procedure that treats fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, skin laxity, hands, décolletage and neck. Age Jet is also the only device that is safe to treat both the upper and lower eyelids.
Age Jet is a type of plasma skin regeneration in which nitrogen gas creates a thermal injury deep in the skin. This means that the plasma preserves the outer layer of the skin until your new skin forms over the course of 10 days. Surface improvements appear soon after treatment.
Prior to treatment, a topical numbing cream can be applied to combat any discomfort, and then plasma energy is released into the skin via a handpiece connected to the Age Jet machine. Controlled pulses then penetrate deep layers of the skin tissue through this nonablative approach. The entire treatment takes no more than an hour, and within four to 10 days, the treated skin heals to reveal regenerated youthful skin.
The provider greets the patient and ensures all necessary forms and photos have been taken. Before proceeding, the provider reviews the procedure with the patient and answers any questions.
Pre-treatment for both upper and lower eyelid: On the day of treatment, a light layer of topical anesthetic is applied for 15 to 20 minutes and then removed, followed by the removal of corrective lenses (if any).
Upper eyelid treatment: The patient raises their eyebrows, at which point the provider covers the brow with wet gauze or Aquaphor. The provider then holds the upper lid closed by using a silicone facial spreader to grip the lid during the treatment while covering the lashes.
Lower eyelid treatment: The patient closes their eyes, and the provider has the patient use gauze to pull down on the cheek to expose and stretch the lax under the eye tissue. The leading edge of the silicone facial spreader is then placed under the lower lashes.
Following treatment, your provider will instruct you on how to use the Topical HA Serum and Post-Treatment product that you will be given once the treatment is concluded.
I was able to return to work the next day without worrying about the appearance of my skin. I loved that there was hardly any down time! I am 110% satisfied with my experience at Aestheticare. Jennifer was very knowledgeable and made me feel comfortable during the entire procedure. My skin is already improving and I can't wait to see the results after several more treatments.
Quick and painless; Lacinda set expectations for the procedure and was communicative throughout. I've already scheduled another session and plan on scheduling Halo treatments with Lacinda in a couple of months when I will have a few days for the anticipated down time.
My face looks and feels smooth. I have been seen by Jennifer for years, and her hydra facials make a difference to my face. She has vast experience. I started with dermabrassion, and she told me about hydrafacial. The dermabrassion was perfect and hydrafacial MD makes my complexion look ever better.
