Microbeams of plasma are leveraged in a focused energy treatment, resulting in tightening and retraction of the skin tissues through controlled skin damage.
Ionized Gas Particles
As the device is brought close to the skin during treatment, it ionizes nitrogen gas particles in the air to create a plasma arc that looks like a spark.
Skin Retraction and Reaction
The plasma arc causes sublimation of the epidermis of the skin; turning a solid into gas, resulting in immediate skin tightening and retraction in the target area. This method of plasma sublimation is highly targeted and controlled. It does not transfer heat to the surrounding area.
The procedure creates tiny brown carbon crusts or scabs in the treated area that persist for approximately one week before dropping off.
The microinjuries sustained during treatment promote the long-term firming, tightening, and smoothing effects that are part of the natural healing response.
