beautyPlas-concept – for cosmetic treatment
with CeraPlas technology
The research concept “beautyPlas” deals with cosmetic treatments of the skin with plasma. It also includes the use in manicure and pedicure, for example to prepare nails for the application of nail polish or artificial fingernails. A beautyPlas handheld device was developed for research purposes.
The battery powered handheld device requires no external gas input and uses an innovative, compact form of plasma generation for non-thermal or “cold” plasma. Based on one of the world’s smallest plasma generators, the CeraPlas HF-Type, the highly efficient PDD (Piezo Dielectric Discharge) Technology® can be used in a wide variety of applications requiring little space and power.
The beautyPlas-concept can be used for the cosmetic treatment of the skin where the cold atmospheric pressure plasma acts in a complex way: via UV rays, reactive compounds and electric fields. Additionally, the device is used in manicure for the preparation of fingernails before applying polish or artificial fingernails. Here, the adhesion is increased, so that nail polishes and artificial nails last both better and longer. The device itself is rechargeable and is used at three watts and four pulses per second. A digital display can be used to select the desired treatment mode, by adjusting the power between 20% and 100%.
relyon plasma has developed the PDD technology® (Piezoelectric Direct Discharge) for particularly compact plasma generation. The PDD Technology® is based on the direct electrical discharge at an open piezoelectric transformer (PT). The PDD® technology transforms a low input voltage. This results in a high electric field strength. This dissociates and ionizes the surrounding process gas – typically air. Disinfection is mainly carried out by oxidizing odour-producing molecules and microorganisms with ozone.
The advantages of the relyon plasma beautyPlas-concept are obvious:
- Small and compact
- Extremely easy handling for the end user
- Very energy-efficient due to low heat losses
- Very environmentally friendly – no auxiliary materials such as chemicals or additives necessary
- Easy to use
- Only 24 V required for operation (power supply for standard socket)
- Highly efficient and safe excitation of gas molecules
- Extremely high power density of the compact device
