Air injected hyaluronic acid (Enerjet) – would this be effective at 50?

Can you please tell me if you believe the skin treatment for wrinkled skin/tightening method using Airgent/Enerjet is safe and or successful? I don't like needles and I'm fearful of the possible problems of injecting fillers i.e. Possible blindness / stroke. Would you know if this procedure can cause this also? Do you know of the possible side effects? I would like to try something, I'm turning 50 and can notice some sagging in my cheek/jawline area and also have frown lines on my forehead. Many thanks in advance!

Bottom line  – I seriously would not waste my money on this at this point in time if you are looking for lift and tightening.

Notice how little is actually available on this “new” option and the science behind it.   Also, notice the marketing really doesn’t tell you much… just implies it.    My other concern is that the superficiality of it is likely to give you good hydration in the skin for a few weeks, but extra hydration with hyaluronic acid is not the same thing as collagen remodeling that gives a visible lift and tightening that’s long lasting.  The company PerfAction is based in Isreal and doesn’t give much information about itself.

If you really don’t want any injectibles at this point in time, your money would be better spent, in my opinion on a series of 2 or 3 Thermages or Ultherapy treatments.   They give similar results but the Ultherapy  causes more discomfort usually.  More info on these technologies.

Hope this helps,  Dr. I

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
