Portrait Plasma is a skin regeneration that uses thermal energy to help remove pigmentation, acne scarring, skin tightening, help your body to rebuild collagen and elastin that we have lost over the years. During the treatment, Dr. Ness passes a specialized handpiece over the targeted area. Plasma energy is then evenly released across the epidermis, and the collagen regeneration begins almost immediately.
What to expect during a Portrait Plasma procedure?
Portrait Plasma procedure is a safe non-ablative skin rejuvenation procedure. The procedure is relatively pain-free. The only sensation noticeable during the procedure is a slight warming of the skin. We apply a topical anesthetic to the skin too before treatment to help with any discomfort. Dr. Ness will pass a handpiece that evenly distributes the plasma energy across the epidermis, and collagen regeneration begins almost immediately.
Recovery and Results for Portrait Plasma?
There is downtime for portrait plasma of about 7 to 10 days. As the skin is reacting to the treatment there is mild to moderate redness. It is often compared to a bad sunburn without the pain. Each day this the redness reduces and shedding of the epidermis begins. Dr. Ness will continue to see you each day for that first week to follow up on your progress after your treatment. The results from the Portrait are astounding and continue to improve over the next year! As the skin continues to improve patients notice the resurfacing effects such as scars and sun spots diminishing, wrinkles and fine lines filling in, and sagging skin regaining its supple tone.
