Particle sorption and modification

Cold plasma can be used to increase the permeability of the skin barrier to particles of a certain size.

With cold plasma, the permeability of the skin barrier for particles of specific size can be increased.

Plasma permeabilization

Human skin is particularly well suited for therapeutic treatment with cold atmospheric pressure plasma and, furthermore, offers advantages as a route for active-ingredient application. 


Active-ingredient and particle sorption

Process parameters have been identified which allow the safe treatment of skin in order to improve the permeation of active ingredients and nanoparticles up to 200 nm, but which prevent the passage of larger particles and microorganisms.
