You will probably have heard of plasma before, as the body is full of it. Its job is to take nutrients, proteins and hormones to the various parts of the body that need it. However, in recent years, it has become a key part of the skincare and non-surgical treatment industry. This is because plasma can be just to refresh and rejuvenate the skin in a unique, innovative and impressive way.
There are two main ways that plasma is used to improve the appearance of skin, baby plasma and plasmaporation. Baby plasma and plasmaporation are both types of electroporation, but they are not interchangeable treatments. They both use an electromagnetic field to break the cellular adhesion molecules on the skin’s surface, to allow for greater absorption of active ingredients and skincare products into various layers of the skin. If this is done on dry skin and no more than 1mm above the skin’s surface, baby plasma is created. If a conductor gel is applied, the treatment becomes plasmaporation and a greater amount of plasma can be used.
Plasmaporation is different to baby plasma because the conductor gel reduces the baby plasma’s effect on the skin, and it reduces any resurfacing action that baby plasma would have had. With baby plasma, active ingredients penetrate the skin by merely relaxing it. With plasmaporation, the active ingredients can penetrate using plasma energy, allowing for a much more effective and deeper treatment. Below, we have taken a look at which treatment option is best for you.
What Results Can You Expect?
You can expect impressive results with both baby plasma and plasmaporation, but a lot of people find that plasmaporation goes one step further than what baby plasma is capable of. Both of them are used to treat fine lines, wrinkles, large pores, acne and pigmentation. They are both ways of giving skin a new lease of life, by encouraging it to repair and rejuvenate itself.
Which Approach is Best for Me?
Though there are benefits that come with both approaches, there are definite benefits that come with choosing plasmaporation. There is zero flaking of the skin with plasmaporation treatment, as the entire treatment is centred around nourishing the skin via an infusion facial treatment. This isn’t the case with baby plasma, which can cause flaking in the days after treatment, due to it being so close to the skin’s surface. It’s also important to note that six baby plasma sessions is equivalent to one plasmaporation session, meaning that results are usually noticeable a lot sooner.
