What is Plasma?
Plasma is the most common energy source in the universe. The sun is a giant plasma machine. Plasma is made by breaking down elements in the atmosphere, such as oxygen and nitrogen, into highly charged ‘reactive species’. These charged elements act to effect tissue by direct heating. They also work via a photochemical effect as the charged particles effect skin permeability allowing deep tissue effects without breaking the epidermis. Plasma technology has been around for a century. The Plasma BT is the next generation of device which has far more operator control than its predecessors. This allows an increased range and accuracy of treatments.
