What is plasma?
Back in science class we were taught about the three states of matter: solid, liquid and gas. Now, think of water in three phases: ice, liquid and steam. The particles in a solid ice cube are close together and highly attracted to each other so the ice stays in one piece. As the solid ice is gradually heated the attraction between the particles is reduced and the ice becomes liquid water. If this water is then heated even more, the particles of water are turned into gas (steam) where they are free to dart about in the air as vapour particles. The less attraction between particles, the higher the energy they contain.
Well, did you know that there is a fourth state of matter, plasma?
Plasma is hot ionised gas and is made up of highly energised charged gas particles. The universe is made up of 99% plasma. It has to be generated by very high temperatures in the atmosphere – over 100,000 degrees Celsius in fact! Lightning is an example of plasma gas being produced naturally when high temperatures create charged particles of air, then these charged gases travel from the sky to the ground as intense light. Interesting stuff, isn’t it?
How can cold plasma treatment improve the skin?
Plasma treatment is used to treat skin ulcers and bed sores in hospitals where the infection has become resistant to most common antibiotics. This is a breakthrough in the medical industry where multiply resistant bacteria are a problem. The sterilisation of skin is painless and leaves healthy skin intact.
A single 2-minute treatment of cold atmospheric plasma was shown to be safe, painless and effective, decreasing 40% of bacterial load in plasma-treated wounds, regardless of the species of bacteria and without any noted side effects.
By directly reducing the P. acnes bacteria in the pores.
Plasma directly improves blood flow so the skin cells receive more nutrition. Plasma increases the activity of the fibroblasts to make more collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. Data has shown over 25% improvement in lines around the eyes after six weeks.
Plasma is widely used in medicine for enhanced drug delivery. As the skin is charged with high amounts of energy through plasma, the skin becomes more absorbent to water. This means that water soluble substances are more likely to be attracted and absorbed through the skin, and penetration of molecules such as vitamin B, vitamin C, many peptides and other water-soluble cosmeceuticals will be more effective. Studies have shown a 41% increase in the amount of water-soluble nutrients absorbed after 10 minutes of using cold plasma.
