Cold Plasma

 

Cold plasma, also known as cold atmospheric plasma (CAP) therapy or simply cold plasma therapy, is a relatively recent advancement in the field of skincare and cosmetic treatments. It involves the use of a cold plasma device to rejuvenate the skin, improve its texture, and address various skin concerns, such as acne, fine lines, wrinkles, seborrhea and pigmentation issues.

The cold plasma device transforms the main gases in the air – nitrogen and oxygen – to cold plasma. In addition to destroying the bacteria that cause acne, it can also reduce the inflammation in conditions including eczema, atopic dermatitis, rosacea and psoriasis. It can also accelerate healing and reduce pigmentation by rejuvenating the upper layers of the skin.

The treatments are gentle and cause little discomfort. No numbing cream is required and facial treatments take in the region of 10 minutes per treatment. They are non invasive and there is no downtime.

When the cold plasma stream comes into contact with the skin, it creates a controlled thermal effect without heating the skin excessively. This makes it suitable for various skin types and concerns.The plasma stream interacts with the outermost layer of the skin, known as the epidermis, and the deeper dermal layers.

How Cold Plasma Works for Acne

Cold plasma has antimicrobial properties and can effectively kill or inhibit the growth of acne-causing bacteria. By reducing the bacterial load on the skin, cold plasma can help reduce inflammation and the formation of new acne lesions. Cold plasma has anti-inflammatory effects that can help calm the skin and reduce the redness and irritation associated with acne.

In addition, cold plasma has been shown to stimulate tissue regeneration and wound healing. This can be beneficial for acne-prone skin, as it can help repair damaged skin and reduce the risk of scarring from acne lesions.

Sebum is the natural oil produced by the skin, and excess sebum production is a contributing factor in the development of acne. Some studies suggest that cold plasma may help regulate sebum production, which can lead to fewer clogged pores and a reduced likelihood of new acne breakouts.

Cold plasma can also have a tightening effect on the skin’s pores, which can make them appear smaller and less prone to becoming clogged with dirt and oil.

Some of the further Benefits of Cold Plasma Therapy

  • Collagen Stimulation: One of the primary benefits of cold plasma treatment is its ability to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin in the skin. These proteins are essential for maintaining skin’s firmness and elasticity, and their production tends to decrease with age.
  • Improved Skin Texture: Cold plasma therapy can help improve the overall texture of the skin by reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and rough patches. The controlled thermal effect induced by cold plasma promotes the remodeling of collagen and elastin fibers in the skin, leading to a tightening and rejuvenating effect.
  • Reduction in Pigmentation: Cold plasma therapy may help reduce the appearance of pigmentation issues, such as age spots and sun damage.

The treatment is non-invasive and requires no downtime, making it a popular choice for those seeking skin rejuvenation without the risks and recovery associated with surgical procedures. 

It’s important to note that while cold plasma therapy can provide visible results, individual responses may vary, and a series of sessions will be needed to achieve optimal results. In general – 6-8 treatments carried out once or twice per week will be required.
