Harnessing Nature for Skincare
What is Plasma?
Plasma is one of the 4 fundamental states of matter (together with solid, liquid, and gas).
It consists of a gas of unbound ions and free electrons.
Plasma can be artificially generated by heating a neutral gas, or by subjecting it to a strong electromagnetic field.
Atmospheric Cold Plasma
Dr Platon employs the Plasma Shower technology to transform the main gases in the air between the device tip and the patient’s skin – mainly Oxygen and Nitrogen – to atmospheric, cold (non-thermal) plasma.
This is unlike:
Atmospheric Cold Plasma
Cold (non-thermal) atmospheric plasma reaches a temperature of 35-40 °C and is safe to touch!
The cold plasma treatments by Dr Platon cause no pain or discomfort.
Cold plasma has
no ablation effect, and therefore requires no downtime!
Sooths irritated Skin – Oxidative Stress reduces the negative effect of chronic skin diseases
Acne Treatment -Atomic Oxygen inhibits the anaerobic petogen bacteria found in acne
Skin Brightening -Atomic Oxygen oxygenates the melanin in epidermal skin stains
Fights Inflammation -Nitric Oxide has an Anti-inflammatory, Anti-fungal, Anti- bacterial effect
Cell Renewal -High energy causes division of basal cells – Epidermis regeneration
The electrical voltage between the freely charged particles in plasma:
These processes result in a “disinfection” effect.
For patients with oily skin and acne (including adult acne, papules and pustules):
Cold plasma also prevents acne reoccurrence, by balancing skin functioning and sebum production
By reducing the inflammation, the plasma also reduces the level of hemoglobin around the skin stain, thus reduces blemishes
Problematic & Irritated Skin
The oxidative stress of cold plasma has an antioxidant impact on the skin immune system.
It reduces the damaging effect of chronic skin diseases, such as atopic dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis, and seborrhea, which manifest in an inflamed, irritated, dehydrated, and rough skin.
(Anti Aging + Healing Wounds)
The high-energy of plasma stimulates cellular activity, and has a powerful skin rejuvenation impact:
Improving Absorption of Therapeutic Substances
The electrical energy of the plasma temporarily breaks the cell adhesion molecules (CAMs).
This increases epidermal permeability, allowing effective insertion of active substances into the skin.
Research shows that plasma treatments improve skin absorption of cosmetic substances, in the first 12 hours after treatment, by ~24%.
