How does plasma therapy work?
A plasma treatment involves a hand piece that converts nitrogen gas into plasma energy, which causes rapid heating of the tissue. The upper layers of the skin remain intact and become a natural dressing, which provides protection to the underlying skin cells that are healing. The epidermis will eventually shed, and a new, healthier skin is revealed. Unlike ablative techniques, such as CO2 resurfacing, there are no untreated skin islands, but rather the entire skin surface is uniformly treated. This leads to the entire skin surface being regenerated due to new collagen and elastin production.
What conditions does plasma therapy treat?
Plasma therapy can be used to treat multiple issues. This technology reduces both superficial and deep wrinkles and can help to even out any discoloration or abnormal skin tone or texture. It improves the elasticity of skin. It is extremely effective in treating acne scars. NeoGen plasma is quickly becoming the gold standard for treating the upper and lower eyelid, where other therapies provide inconsistent results and are less safe to perform.Overall, this therapy provides profound skin tightening that is dramatic and reflects the overall increase in health of the tissue.
In addition, this therapy can be used for treatment of onychomycosis (nail fungus) by eliminating the fungus that lives within the nail and nailbed.
