Eczema is often an extremely itchy skin condition. When the rash is scratched, the skin becomes inflamed (puffy) and red. Eczema can affect both adults and children, however, the majority of sufferers are children who outgrow it by their tenth birthday. Some people may continue to have symptoms periodically throughout their lifetimes. In some cases, the itching may begin before a rash manifests. When the rash does occur, it normally appears on the back of the knees, hands, face or feet.

The most common form of eczema is known as atopic dermatitis. It is a long-term (chronic) skin disorder that is the result of an allergic reaction and affects roughly 15-20% of children of school going age globally, with only 2 to 10% of adults being affected. For this reason, the information that follows in the various sections of this article (listed in the navigation menu above) will pay specific attention to this type of eczema.

The term ‘atopic’ when referring to atopic dermatitis describes a tendency to develop dermatitis (i.e. the skin being swollen, red and itchy) as part of an allergic hypersensitivity reaction. The condition often co-exists with two other allergic conditions, namely asthma and hay fever (also known as allergic rhinitis) or may lead to the development of these later in life in a progression that is known as the 'atopic march'. Approximately 60% of people suffering from eczema demonstrate atopy (a genetic tendency to develop allergic conditions such as asthma or hay fever). Atopic dermatitis generally begins during infancy3 (between the ages of three to six months4) and may continue into childhood. It is characterised by dry, flaky and red patches of inflamed skin on the neck, face and groin. The condition tends to appear in the form of flare-ups which are often followed by periods of healing and remission (disappearance of the signs and symptoms). Remission can last for a few weeks, months and even years.

A number of children outgrow this form of eczema, yet some may still suffer flare-ups into adulthood, although symptoms will usually be less severe. For those who do not outgrow eczema in early childhood, the associated rash will often change as they age. During childhood and adolescence, an atopic dermatitis rash is predominantly seen in the folds of the affected person’s skin. When reaching adulthood, the rash is usually limited to just one part of the body, for example just the hands or feet.

Atopic dermatitis is not contagious and while the condition can sometimes disappear for a time on its own, there are a number of treatment options available to ease the bothersome symptoms of this disorder.

Cold plasma tecnology developed in easy to use portable device has shown as a successful treatment for home care. Shown results are achieived after 3 - 4 weeks of morning and evening use, no longer than 10minutes.

What is acne?

Acne is a chronic inflammatory skin condition, characterized by blackheads and whiteheads (called comedones), pimples, and deeper lumps (cysts or nodules). They are caused when hair follicles are clogged with oil, bacteria and dead skins cells, and can occur on the face, neck, chest, back, shoulders and upper arms.

How do bacteria affect acne?

Some bacteria live normal on the skin and cause no harm, such as some Staphylococcus species, Corynebacterium spp., Brevibacterium spp and Acinetobacter.

Bacteria that contribute to inflammatory lesions in acne include:

👉 Cutibacterium acnes (C. acnes, formally known as Propionibacterium acnes)

👉 Corynebacterium granulosum (also known as Cutibacterium acnes and formally known as Propionibacterium granulosum)

👉 Staphylococcus epidermidis (coagulase-negative staphylococcus).

However, the severity of a person's acne does not depend on the number of bacteria on the skin surface or in the sebaceous ducts (the passageway from the oil glands). The number and activity of C. acnes bacteria varies according to oxygen supply, nutrient supply and the pH level of the skin. Some acne lesion are colonised by C. acnes and others are not. The C. acnes bacteria can produce active enzymes and innate inflammatory mediators and these may contribute to the activity of acne in some patients. Activation triggers expression of immune response genes. The inflammatory mediators provoked by the bacteria penetrate surrounding skin and are a cause of inflammation.

What is the effect of treatment on acne bacteria? Acne can be treat on many different ways.

Topical treatment for acne is available as washes, solutions, lotions, gels and creams. They may have a single or multiple active ingredients. There are numerous products available in supermarkets and pharmacies. Some require a doctor's prescription.

Active ingredients may have one or more of the following properties:

👉 Antibiotics and antiseptics to reduce counts of Cutibacterium acnes (P.acnes) bacteria

👉 Anti-inflammatory effects to calm red, inflamed skin by inhibiting lipase production by C.acnes

👉 Anti-oxidants to protect cells from damage by free radicals

👉 Comedolytics to unplug blocked follicles (comedones)

👉 Keratolytics to peel off surface scale (exfoliants)

👉 Agents that affect keratinisation; these normalise skin cell maturation.

CAN YOU IMAGINE THAT ALL THESE CAN BE REPLACES WITH COLD PLASMA - NATURAL PHENOMENON DEVELOPED BY INTELIGENT COREAN TECHNOLOGY IN PLABEAU S1 AND G4+ DEVICE?

HOW CAN COLD PLASMA TREATMENT IMPROVE THE SKIN? There are 6 Clinically proven benefits (read article about Plabeau G4+) but in this article will be mention the one that is conected with purifyng the skin and sterilising bacteria that causes acne.

REDUCING SURFACE SKIN BACTERIA AND OTHER HARMFUL MICROBES THAT CAN LEAD TO INFLAMMATION AND INFECTION

Plasma treatment is used to treat skin ulcers and bed sores in hospitals where the infection has become resistant to most common antibiotics. This is a breakthrough in the medical industry where multiply resistant bacteria are a problem.

The sterilisation of skin is painless and leaves healthy skin intact.

A single 2-minute treatment of cold atmospheric plasma was shown to be safe, painless and effective, decreasing 40% of bacterial load in plasma-treated wounds, regardless of the species of bacteria and without any noted side effects.

6 KEY BENEFITS - Clinically tested by Korean Institute of Dermatological Sciences

It uses non invasive and painless plasma technology to break down molecules in the air into high speed particles. Instantly delivered to the bottom layer of the skin, provides six clinically tested key benefits for human skin:

1. Absorption enhancement

Plabeau charges skin with cold plasma energy which opens micro-channels and enhances skin hydrophilic ability and absorption up to 41% after 10min of use. This ability allows serums, gels, creams, oils and other skin care products to penetrate in deepest skin layer, offering great skin treat results.

2. Collagen boosting

Plasma promotes fibroblast growth, cell regeneration and therefore regeneration of collagen and elastin. With this benefits, skin improves elasticity and firmness.

Studies show that moisturizing effect lasts for 10 hours after just 10 minutes of use and enhances by 58% after 2 week of use.

Skin density enhances by 14.09%.

Skin elasticity enhances by 9.5% after 4 week of use.

3. Wrinkles Reduction

Plasma promotes collagen generation, repairs damaged skin and cells which effectively reduce wrinkles and fine lines, thus improves skin texture.

Studies show that fine lines reduces by 11.78% after 6 weeks of use and deeper wrinkles reduces by 11.78%, skin roughness improves by 10.99% after 4 weeks of use.

4. Skin Brightening

Plasma dissolves and restricts melanin production while encourages skin regeneration, thus effectively whiten, improves skin radiance and pigmentation.

Studies show skin tone improvement by 1.59% after 4 week of use.

5. Sterilization and Soothing

Cold plasma kills germs, bacteria, viruses by breaking their cell membranes, thus effectively soothes redness, itching, acne and discomfort.

Skin becomes much less sensitive as well.

Studies show that skin itchiness intensity improves by 63%, skin itchiness frequency improves by 69% after 2 weeks of use.

This fact make this device first aid tool for whole family.

6. Deep cleansing.

Plasma pulls out the impurities and secretion blocked in skin pores, thus improve acne, blackheads, whiteheads and leave skin smoother and finer.
