Airgent is a safe, long-term skin remodeling treatment that reverses the visible signs of aging and makes your skin appear younger immediately following treatment. Natural BiAction™ technology uses a mechanical process to augment collagen generation, thickening and revitalizing the skin and leaving it feeling smoother, well-hydrated and supple.
Has Airgent been clinically proven?
Clinical trials and peer-reviewed publications show that the strong, controlled collagen-generating trauma induced by the Airgent™ treatment facilitates mechanical stress to the fibroblasts – which respond by producing more collagen. This mechanical stretching is far superior to existing injection methods, and performed with very high-precision. The accelerated, lateral dispersion of a skin enhancing agent (high-molecular mass natural Hyaluronic Acid) increases the contact area to reach a larger, more uniform coverage area. The result: augmented collagen production, stimulated growth factors and inhibited collagen breakdown for long-lasting, uniform results.
How does Airgent work?
The Airgent™ system introduces a skin enhancing agent to the dermis leaving the surrounding tissue intact. The lateral dispersion of the agent induces a mechanical effect that augments collagen generation and stimulates growth factors. The skin enhancing agent absorbs water for rapid skin thickening and immediate visible improvement. Intensive dermal healing then augments collagen generation to create, tighter tissue to replace skin
Where can Airgent treatments help most?
Airgent™ treatments can be used treat all skin types and all areas of the body. It improves the skin’s appearance even in the most delicate areas, such as hands, décolleté, neck, cheeks, around the eyes and lips, forehead and chin.
Airgent™ treatments are ideal for:
- Reducing fine wrinkles
- Revitalizing aged, dehydrated skin
- Enhancing natural features
- Removing acne scars
- Reducing wrinkles around the eyes and lips
- Concealing noticeable scars and keloids
- Reducing visible stretch marks
- Mini “face-lifts”
How many treatments will I need?
Most practitioners recommend a series of three treatments. However, this varies significantly between specific applications, skin thickness and other factors.
How long will the remodeling effect last?
One follow-up treatment is usually recommended after 12 to 18 months.
Can I use Airgent™ if I previously undergone a laser treatment or a chemical peel?
It is recommended to wait until the area is totally healed and the skin is back to its normal condition.
Is there any downtime with Airgent™?
Immediately following treatments, you may see a few small whitish papules. These usually subside within three hours. The morning after treatment there may some tiny entry-points that are visible, but these are easily concealed with make-up. These spots usually fully-heal within three to four days. The non-thermal, non-chemical mechanical effect causes no bruising or peeling.
Are there any side effects to the Airgent™ treatment?
The Airgent™ procedure has an excellent safety record, far superior to that of laser and other thermal procedures, as well as chemical peels. Because the Airgent™ BiAction™ technology produces a mechanical effect rather than a thermal one, there is no risk of burning or scarring.
Are there any risks from the Airgent™ treatment?
A few common, allergic-related reactions have been reported following treatment. These typically resolve spontaneously within one or two days after the treatment. If such a reaction occurs, it is advised to discontinue treatment. These reactions include redness, swelling, pain, itching, bruising or tenderness at the application site. Hematomas are not common yet may occur and disappear within a week (depending on each individual’s healing response). Following an upper lip treatment, the lip may be swollen for several days.
