NeoGen Plasma Resurfacing
Plasma Skin Resurfacing is the newest tech for resurfacing and Dr. Scott’s is proud to offer NeoGen PRS.
What is NeoGen?
NeoGen PSR is a cutting-edge skin regeneration treatment that uses plasma to deliver controlled heating to the skin without vaporizing the skin surface. Its unique thermal energy is able to regenerate new skin, replacing old damaged collagen and elastin with controlled precision. This results in tightening of the skin, with improved texture, tone, and color, transforming your skin to a more youthful state.
What does it do?
The NeoGen PSR resurfaces, rejuvenates and tightens skin. It reduces pore size, treats age spots and skin discoloration, benign skin lesions, acne scarring, as well as fine lines and wrinkles in the forehead, and around the eyes, nose and mouth. It is ideal for tightening the eyelids and treats active acne and acne scarring.

Why NeoGen PSR over the CO2 laser?
- The NeoGen PSR offers a full range of treatment options; from a lunchtime treatment to full “ablative-like” resurfacing results with less risk and downtime than the CO2 laser.
- The C02 laser works well for deeper wrinkles but also destroys the skin surface, whereas the NeoGen leaves the skin surface intact, acting as a biological dressing until the skin beneath it has had time to heal.
- Elastin fibers in the skin give the skin its elasticity, or ability to bounce back. CO2 laser destroys elastin, while NeoGen improves the elastin content of the skin. As a matter of fact, clinical studies show the NeoGen improves the collagen and elastin content up to one year later.
- CO2 laser does regenerate collagen, but it lays it down parallel to the skin surface, which gives the skin that shiny appearance. The NeoGen regenerates collagen in perpendicular to the surface, and that leaves the skin looking healthy, natural, and lustrous.
What is the Down-time?
Down-time can vary based on the intensity of treatment. The down-time for a light “Red Carpet” resurfacing is usually 3-5 days; we recommend 3 treatments one month apart. For those who have more downtime, we can do a more aggressive resurfacing, with a recovery period closer to 7-10 days.
