Enerjet which has now replaced the previous version Airgent is used as a dermal filler without the requirement for injection.
How can a dermal filler get into the dermis when there is strong epidermal/dermal layer?
Up until now the only way to get a thick dermal filler down into the dermis was with an injection which allows the product to bypass the outer epidermis. The airgent/enerjet is an innovative method of actually blowing in the filler through a powerful wind into the underlying dermis. Once under the dermis, the product can remain in place in much the same way as a regular dermal filler.
WHAT IS THE ADVANTAGE OF USING THE ENERJET/AIRGENT?
The main advantage is for patients who do not want to have an injection. Also, because it places a microform of the filler under the skin, it is ideal for treating large areas such as over the face for full face rejuvenation and skin thickening.
What areas can be treated with the airgent/enerjet?
Fortunately, this procedure can be used in multiple areas and is commonly used to treat aging on the back of the hands and neck. We also use it to treat cellulite and stretch marks.
How many times does the treatment need to be repeated?
As a general rule, patients have one treatment every month for 3 treatments. The area would be reviewed after 12-18 months.

Are there any complications?
Sometimes, the treatment can be a little painful and there may be normal bruising and swelling.
Can this treatment be combined with other treatments?
Yes, this treatment works well with anything that fills the epidermis to elevate and stretch the skin and can also be used a post cosmetic surgery procedure. Patients who have mini facelifts or blepharoplasty may benefit from skin textural treatments and Airgent/Enerjet is a valuable tool in these patients.
Is there any age limit with this device?
There is no age limit, and patients of all age groups and both males and females can benefit from the therapy.
