Plasma Shower Handpiece removes the bacteria and helps absorb essential drugs to the skin tissue. A strong low-temperature atmospheric plasma on the surface of the skin sterilizes the skin and the ionized radicals stimulate the skin treatment process such as skin regeneration, anti-bacteria, TDDS (Transdermal Drug Delivery System), skin whitening and collagen generation.
During the treatment, the skin may feel a warm sensation and where there are active clusters of acne this may be amplified. There is also the smell of o-zone which is harmless. The tips of active acne pustules may be dislodged during the treatment, this is normal.
The effects of the Plasma Shower treatment can usually be seen within a week after the treatment.
- Slight Redness which is transient
- Weeping acne pustules
- Uncommon Side Effects
- Hypo/hyper pigmentation (light or dark patches on the skin). Usually this is temporary but in rare cases can be permanent.
Multiple Plasma Shower treatment sessions are required to obtain optimal results. A treatment programme of 2-6 treatments at 1-4 weekly intervals is recommended to achieve the best results. The number of treatment sessions required depends upon the individual patient and the condition of the skin.
