Plasma jet is an aesthetic treatment that can be used to treat wrinkles, expression lines, dark spots, scars and stretch marks, as it favors the production of collagen and elastic fibers, reduces keloids and even facilitates entry of assets into the skin.
Plasma jet treatment can be done every 15-30 days, according to the dermatologist's guidance. Each session lasts about 20 minutes and the results can be seen in the first treatment session.
In the 24 hours after the plasma jet sessions, it is recommended to use sunscreen with at least SPF 30, to protect the skin from the harmful effects of the sun. In addition, it may be necessary to use a specific cream or ointment to aid healing, which will be recommended by the professional who performs the technique.
What is it for

How it works
Plasma is considered the fourth state of matter, in which electrons separate from atoms, producing an ionized gas. This gas activates the regeneration and healing process, stimulates the immune system and facilitates the production of collagen, contributing to a better overall appearance of the skin.
In addition, plasma also opens the ion channels of dermal cells, which allows for greater hydration and greater firmness of the skin.
Does the plasma jet hurt?
Plasma jet treatment may cause some pain or discomfort. Therefore, it is common to use an anesthetic gel before the procedure.
