If you’re experiencing premature signs of aging, have sun-damaged skin or discoloration after acne and other skin disorders, you may be a good candidate for the Rhytec Portrait Facial treatment. This FDA-approved procedure is designed to treat wrinkles and superficial skin lesions, and has been accepted by the physicians at the American Academy of Dermatology as an effective skin regeneration procedure. Here’s a close look at how the Rhytec Portrait Facial Treatment works, and what its key anti-aging benefits are:
How Rhytec Portrait Facial Treatments Work
In order for damaged skin to heal itself, the skin must undergo several cycles of regeneration and renewal. This can take several months or even years depending on the level of skin damage, but skin rejuvenation procedures such as laser skin resurfacing and radiofrequency treatments such as Thermage can help to speed up the regeneration process.
The Rhytec Portrait PSR3 takes things one step further by creating a highly energized gaseous state called plasma that heats up skin directly blow the surface. This stimulates collagen production and makes the skin appear smoother and more even.
The Portrait PSR3 procedure is administered at three different levels, depending on the severity of the problem. PSR1 is the shortest series and features three to four low energy treatments sessions about three weeks apart. This level is most suitable for individuals with mild wrinkling and mild sun damage.
PSR2 is a single session treatment designed to treat moderate to severe wrinkles and sun damaged skin. PSR3 is the most extensive resurfacing treatment, and involves more downtime because it triggers significant flaking and peeling.
Anti-Aging Benefits of Rhytec Portrait Facial Treatments
The Rhytec Portrait Facial procedure can be administered as a single session or individually, and promises progressive results. As the skin begins to heal and renew itself, surface discoloration is reduced, pore size is decreased and acne scars become less prominent. For most people, the natural skin turnover process is between 21 and 30 days. In many cases, patients also notice a significant reduction in wrinkles.
Other key anti-aging benefits of Rhytec Portrait Facial treatments include:
Helps soften fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes
Reduces skin discoloration around the cheeks and forehead
Evens out an uneven skin tone
Speeds up collagen production or healthy skin renewal
Reduces the effects of further sun damage
Offers long-lasting results
Individuals that undergo Rhytec Portrait Facial treatments can maintain and enhance results by keeping skin moisturized and eating a healthy diet. The skin must stay well hydrated in order to heal after this intensive procedure, so some physicians may recommend prescription-strength facial products and medical-grade moisturizers to promote recovery. Most people see significant results approximately three to four weeks after the first treatment session, and the skin will continue to become stronger and more resilient as the weeks go by.
