What is Plasma and how does it act?

Plasma is a revolutionary technique used for fibroblasting, which enhances skin tightening naturally without the need for cutting, surgery or burning. Plasma is the latest and most advanced method used to target ageing skin, lift skin and improve skin tone and texture. Plasma uses fibroblasting to circumvent medical alternatives, thus providing a natural path to skin rejuvenation. Fibroblasting with plasma is a technique that can only be done by trained professionals for the effective treatment of various skin malformations.

Plasma is understood as the fourth physical state aside from solid, liquid and gas. The easiest way to explain it is by using water as an example. Ice is the solid state of water. When you apply energy in the form of heat, the water becomes liquid and later gas. Supplying heat to the gas transforms it to plasma. Atoms, molecules, ions, and electrons move freely in the plasma and interact mutually. Therefore, plasma is an ionised gas being a conductive medium with special characteristics.

In nature we can find plasma here:

  • Lightning (during a storm)
  • Walking on a carpet
  • Balloon rubbing on the hair (static discharging)
  • Handshake (static energy discharging)

The main effect of the plasma treatment is the “thermal skin reaction” – the evaporation of the upper skin layer. The welcome side effect of this reaction is tightening caused by the high-energy plasma particles.

Theory of Plasma Treatment

A plasma discharge – when energy is delivered from Plasma to the skin – only occurs when the needle of the pen is placed about 0.5mm over the skin. Discharging is stopped automatically as soon as the needles distance to the skin becomes too small or too large. The plasma discharge light ‘arc’ can be visually perceived although no current is flowing during the treatment. The ambient air serves as a ‘means of transport’ between the applicator tip and the skin
