WHAT TECHNOLOGY DOES ENERJET USE?
EnerJet is an intradermal jet remodelling technology. It utilises a needleless system that delivers skin-enhancing solutions where they are needed most, into the dermis. EnerJet is a safe and clinically proven skin-remodelling treatment for face lifting, skin regeneration, and scar repair. It also makes your skin feel smoother, well-hydrated and appear younger.
EnerJet is effective in treating a variety of skin conditions such as acne scars as well as thin and dehydrated skin over the dorsum of the hands, neck, and décolletage. A unique method of utilising this technology has also been developed to treat sagging skin.
HOW DOES ENERJET WORK?
The EnerJet Facelift utilises this unique EnerJet technology to provide additional support to aging and sagging skin. Tiny droplets of high molecular weight hyaluronic acid are introduced into the skin in a unique pattern. This process causes the contraction of collagen fibres in the desired vector, and an immediate improvement can be seen in the jawline contour, midface proﬁle, and nasolabial folds after treatment.
Over the medium-to-long term, the mechanical and chemical stimulation of neocollagenesis produces a continuous and long-lasting improvement of a tighter and firm visage.
WHY SHOULD I CHOOSE ENERJET?
Unlike ultrasound and radio frequency treatments, EnerJet is not heat-based and is less likely to cause post-treatment pigmentary problems. In addition to this, EnerJet does not burn fat — making this treatment more suitable for those with thin faces looking to keep as much facial volume as possible along with a more lifted appearance.
EnerJet is a needleless delivery system. This is more acceptable for someone who is looking to have a minimally-invasive procedure that does not involve needles and has a short downtime.
AM I SUITABLE FOR ENERJET?
EnerJet FaceLift is suitable for anyone who is looking to have a more refreshed and rejuvenated look. It helps create a firmer and tighter appearance with immediate visible improvement in the lateral eyebrow, nasolabial fold and marionette lines. The EnerJet FaceLift can also treat sagging skin in the neck and jawline by creating more definition in these areas.
As the treatment requires the skin’s ability to generate new collagen, improvement are more apparent in younger skin than in skin that is more advanced in age.
WHAT IS THE DURATION OF THE TREATMENT?
A typical EnerJet Facelift session lasts about 30 minutes. As treatment areas are typically located hidden within the hairline with minimal downtime — in fact, our patients can continue with their daily activities immediately after the treatment.
WHAT TO EXPECT?
Before the treatment, our doctor will assess your skin and suitability for the procedure. You will be briefed on the steps and expected outcomes as well as asked to fill a written consent form.
Approximately 20 minutes prior to the treatment, a local anaesthetic cream is applied. During the treatment, you will notice occasional loud noises from the machine generator that is working to deliver the high kinetic energy of these treatment solutions. You may feel mild discomfort when the skin-enhancing solution penetrates the skin.
After the treatment, you will notice tiny bumps over the treatment area. These will dissipate over the next one to two hours. There will be mild swelling over the treatment areas — these typically last one to two days. The tiny holes through which the skin-enhancing solution enters the skin will form a scab. This will fall off naturally over the next three to five days.
IS ENERJET TREATMENT PAINFUL?
Approximately 20 minutes prior to the treatment, a local anaesthetic cream will be applied. Most patients feel minimal discomfort and find the pain level acceptable.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
The patient may experience minor side effects including bumps, burns, pain and swelling over the treatment area. The treatment areas will largely be within the hairline — any effects will be hidden and eventually disappear after a few days. As with all treatments, it is advisable to use a good strength sunblock to protect the treatment area from UV light, be it natural sunlight or from tanning beds. General hygiene is also important to prevent any infection through the tiny breaks in the skin.
WHEN CAN I SEE THE FULL RESULTS?
Patients can expect to see lifting after one treatment. As collagen remodels, gradual improvements can still be observed up to 6 months following the treatment. The results are expected to last between 6 to 12 months. For optimal results, an initial course of 3 treatments is recommended, with 1 treatment performed every one to two months. Subsequently, a course of 6 to 12 monthly maintenance treatments can be considered.
