Plasma is the 4th sate of matter, is the most abundant state of matter in the universe and is comprised of ions and Electrons. Unlike solid, liquid and gas, plasma does not freely exist on the earth’s surface under normal circumstances and must be generated. ENTER THE PLASMA IQ…
Plasma energy is formed by ionizing nitrogen gas in the atmospheric air between the surface of the skin and the electrode tip. The close proximity of the electrode tip to the skin enables a limited discharge pathway which creates precise micro injuries to the upper layers of the skin and results in limited tissue spread.
Plasma IQ is a Two Fold Treatment:
- Thermal Necrosis- this is irreversible ablative injury to the epidermis and upper dermis with immediate tissue contraction.
- Thermal Modification- deeper referable injury to the papillary dermis.
During a treatment, as the plasma IQ approaches the surface of the skin, it ionizes atmospheric nitrogen gas particles in the air to create a plasma arc that looks like a spark (think itty bitty lightening bolt). That plasma arc delivers thermal plasma energy, which creates precise micro-injuries to the upper layers of the skin. This results in immediate tissue contraction and tightening of the skin, along with thermal disruption in the papillary dermis.Plasma IQ has a low risk of side effects. Extreme device precision and controlled energy settings limit the damage of surrounding skin, reduce downtime and improve healing.
The Plasma IQ treatment can be performed in-office in as little as 30 minutes, depending on the area(s) treated.
The two levels of energy allow for safe and effective treatments for a variety of indications and areas. Plasma IQ delivers the precise amount of energy desired using the high (950V) or low (650V) settings during treatment.
Great for those delicate areas (think eyelids, lip lines, crows feet) and stretch marks too!
