The technique behind plasma tightening is a well-known technique, which has been used for years in abdominal surgery to gently separate the tissue here. Here the cooled plasma jet is used like a kind of scalpel.
In plastic surgery, plasma tightening smoothes and tightens the skin in a particularly gentle way. The plasma beam heats the tissue for about 0.44 seconds and then jumps on to the next connective tissue structure. The treatment time is therefore extremely short, and at the same time the surrounding tissue is cooled by the helium gas. The plasma jet shrinks the existing connective tissue structures to the maximum, and the outflowing gas prevents burns in the tissue. This rapid change of the beam and the cooling by the outflowing helium gas gives rise to the term ‘cool plasma’.
If you compare the plasma tightening with a treatment with conventional laser devices, which heats the surrounding tissue, the risks of an application with helium plasma are much lower – with a significantly higher effect and a painless, uncomplicated application at the same time.
