Aesthetic product supplier 4T Medical has launched a portable, multi-frequency plasma electrosurgical device in the UK, called the Zeus.
Manufactured in Italy, the device can perform both surgical and non-surgical procedures for aesthetic treatments, dermatology, vascular surgery, dentistry and gynaecology. The Zeus can also be used for minor surgical procedures where cutting or cauterisation is required. The device has multiple settings allowing the practitioner control over frequency, duty cycle and power in order to tailor the device to a patient’s skin type, skin hydration and age. It uses long-wave frequency which provides a focused micro-plasma arc between the device and the tissue being treated. According to 4T Medical, this allows for the removal of skin blemishes, the improvement of eye bags and wrinkles, as well as the treatment of certain dermatological diseases such as actinic keratosis, angiomas, warts and verrucae. It works by ionising the atmospheric gases present in the gap between the device and tissue in order to generate a plasma arc. This plasma arc sublimates the superficial layers of skin without causing major thermal injuries to the surrounding or deeper structures of the skin. The device is foot-pedal operated and requires standard electrodes. Julien Tordjmann, CEO of 4T Medical commented, “Zeus is unique to 4T Medical’s offering as it gives our customers the opportunity to offer a large breadth of surgical and non-surgical applications. Our customers tell us it gives them excellent control over procedures and the results have been fantastic. It is a reliable and safe solution for patients.”
