EnerJet™

SKINLIFE: GALDERMA CANADA’S NO. 1 COSMETIC CLINIC – SCAR CORRECTION & FACE LIFTING VIA ENERJET™

 

The JVR Powered – Enerjet at SKINLIFE raises the bar for non-surgical treatments including deep remodeling and long-lasting skin treatments together with supreme needle-free intradermal compounds delivery. The JVR technology simultaneously delivers kinetic energy and a healing compound enabling a controlled deep micro-trauma profile effect for dermal remodeling. The jet stream, providing over 150 meters per second of healing compound, creates an even and optimal spread of the compound within the skin, achieving deeper absorption as well as a unique micro-trauma pattern. The combined effect of controlled micro-trauma and healing compounds promotes collagen generation, creating thicker dermal tissue and correcting skin imperfections for long-lasting, healthy aesthetic improvement.

How does Enerjet™ face lifting work?

Non-surgical facial tightening is one of the most popular aesthetics treatments, with demand for low risk and minimal downtime growing steadily. EnerJet Kinetic Facelift treatment is an ideal solution to meet this demand, and has been proven to deliver excellent results. Skin aging is a complex biological process influenced by combination of internal factors- genetics, cellular metabolism, hormone and metabolic processes, and external factors- chronic light exposure, pollution, ionizing radiation, chemicals, toxins. These factors all together lead to cumulative structural and physiological alterations and progressive changes in each skin layer as well as visual skin changes, especially on the sun-exposed skin areas. Highly wrinkled and dry substantially aged skin shows a thickened epidermis, mottled discoloration, laxity and dullness. Gradual loss of skin elasticity leads to the phenomenon of sagging. A marked loss of fibrillin-positive structures as well as a reduced content of collagen type VII (Col-7), may contribute to wrinkles by weakening the bond between dermis and epidermis of aged skin. The sparse distribution and decrease in collagen content in aged skin can be due to increased collagen degradation. In older skin, collagen looks irregular and disorganized; the ratio of Col-3, to Col-1 has been shown to increase, due, significantly, to a loss of Col-1. The overall collagen content per unit area of the skin surface is known to decline approximately 1% a year. The total hyaluronic acid (HA) level in the dermis of aged skin remains stable; however, epidermal HA diminishes markedly. Visual of aging of the entire face is associated with the impact of gravity, muscles action, loss of volume, diminishing and redistribution of superficial and deep fat, loss of bony skeleton support what all together lead to the face sagging, changes in shape and contour.

Jet Volumetric RemodelingTM powers the EnerJetTM. This needle-free proprietary technology simultaneously delivers kinetic energy and a healing compound with minimal epidermal damage, enabling a controlled deep injury profile effect for dermal remodeling. The combined effect of a controlled micro-trauma and suitable healing compounds for each indication induces collagen generation, creating thicker tissue and correcting skin imperfections for long-lasting aesthetic improvement. A powerful jet injection blasts compounds into the deeper layers of the skin, inducing a deep volumetric micro-trauma effect with an optimal spread of the material. The jet stream disperses the skin enhancing agent laterally, covering 100 times the area of one 32G needle’s entry point while leaving minimal signs on the outer layer of the skin. The synergy between two effects sets in motion a cascade healing processes, resulting in a natural healing and hydrating process that generates production of new collagen, ultimately generating skin thickening and tightening. EnerJet Kinetic Facelift works by accelerating a carrier fluid jet of high-mass molecules of hyaluronic acid (HA). Leveraging the power of HA, this triggers a cascade of wound healing, stimulating the subcutaneous tissues, including the Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System (SMAS) and temporal fascia. EnerJet Kinetic Facelift stimulates the SMAS layer and induces tightening of the existing collagen, leading to an immediate effect of skin tightening, while generating new collagen for a long term effect of dermal thickening and reduction in the appearance of wrinkles. The treatment also stimulates facial muscles increasing circulation in the SMAS and facial muscle layer to improve muscle tone. In addition, this clinically proven non-thermal modality enables a ‘kinetic’ face-lift for improvement of Jawline contour, midface profile and nasolabial folds; lifting of the cheeks, jowls and brow; and tightening of the upper face, as well as improvement in skin quality and smoothing of fine lines and wrinkles. JVR technology provides immediate and long lasting results, minimal downtime, minimal pain and low risk of side effects such as post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH).

How does Enerjet™ acne scar treatment work?

Approximately 95% of people with acne vulgaris will suffer from scarring following the initial acne inflammation. Most common are trophic acne scars caused by collagen loss during the healing process. These depressed scars can be further classified into icepick, boxcar and rolling types. Hypertrophic acne scars, caused by increased collagen content are considered less common. Acne scars may result from damage to the skin during the healing of active acne. The two causes of acne scars formation can be categorized as either a result of increased tissue formation or, the more common cause, loss or damage of tissue. Additionally, acne scars can be divided into 3 basic subtypes: icepick scars, rolling scars, and boxcar scars based on their width, depth and 3-dimensional composition. The EnerJet Acne Scars treatment can help improve the appearance of all acne scar subtypes. It is suitable for all skin types, requires minimal downtime and can be carried out year-round. EnerJet acne scars treatment modality will enable treating all scar subtypes, year round, applicable to darker skin types, and will achieve results in minimal downtime.

The synergy between two effects sets in motion a cascade healing processes, resulting in a natural healing and hydrating process that generates production of new collagen, ultimately generating skin thickening and tightening. The EnerJet Acne Scars treatment works by using pneumatic acceleration of high-mass hyaluronic acid (HA) particles. These particles penetrate the epidermis through a tiny, micro-sized entry point. Once the solution reaches the dermal layer, it spreads laterally, causing a subcision effect, or a break in the scar’s fibrotic strands, which tie the scar to the underlying subcutaneous tissue. This releases the scar tissue, allowing the fibroblast cells to form a new connective tissue and generate new collagen during the course of natural wound healing. This is combined with a dermal filler effect. The filler optimized for acne scars improves the way the body responds to the healing process, producing a synergic effect enhancing the desired result. The filler raise the scars to the level of the surrounding skin, obtaining a smoother look and feel. EnerJet’s needleless of action is based on high-velocity pneumatic acceleration of high-mass hyaluronic acid particles which penetrates the epidermis through a tiny entry point. Once the accelerated jet reaches the dermal layer, it spreads laterally, causing a controlled micro-injury to the dermal layer, initiating the wound-healing process, and stimulating neo collagenesis a favorable secondary effect. JVR technology has shown promising results, and may address some of the limitation of other treatment modalities, and may be used in combination for an effective treatment. This technology is associated with short downtimes and is applicable to all acne scare subtypes as well as all skin types. With JVR technology, the specific scar area is treated, in contrast to other modalities such as chemical peels or laser skin resurfacing where a significantly larger area outside the scar is subject to the treatment.

Results & Benefits

Improvement is seen as early as 4 weeks following the first treatment. Additional improvement occurs over the course of 3-6 months post treatment. Newly built collagen  is your very own natural collagen, therefore is no different from collagen naturally produced and found in other parts of the skin. As skin collagen gradually disappears with aging, some patients may need to repeat treatment when their natural aging process results in an inevitable loss of collagen. In addition, if a patient encounters new injury to the skin due to causes including but not limited to new acne, repeated muscle contraction, additional pregnancy, and/or weight gain/loss, additional treatment sessions may become necessary.

FAQ
  • How many treatments do I need?

Most patients generally require 3-5 sessions.

  • What is the treatment interval?

The minimum interval between each session is 4 weeks. Although the recommended interval varies depending on the condition(s) that the treatment is intended to treat, on average, patients repeat the treatment every 4-10 weeks. A longer interval between treatment sessions does not reduce potential treatment efficacy.

  • How long is the downtime?

Localized mild swelling, redness, and small scabs typically disappear in 3-4 days. Small bruising is a rare occurrence, which typically clears in 3-7 days. Cosmetic concealer can be worn starting the day after the treatment.
