Plasma Skin Resurfacing -- Is It Right for You?

When you want to get rid of age spots, fine lines and deep wrinkles for good, a cosmetic facial treatment could offer more benefits than topical products and conventional beauty treatments. The Portrait® Plasma skin resurfacing treatment is designed to get rid of lines and wrinkles, brown spots and pigmented patches of skin, and works to speed up collagen production so that skin appears tighter, smoother and more youthful. All of this is done without surgical intervention, and the skin specialist can target specific areas when needed.

Set up a consultation with a cosmetic dermatologist in your area to find out if you are a good candidate for Plasma skin resurfacing. This innovative skin rejuvenation procedure could be just what you need to freshen up your look and even erase a few years.

Are You a Good Candidate for Plasma Skin Resurfacing?

The entire procedure is relatively pain-free, but those with sensitive skin may need some topical anesthetic. The Plasma skin resurfacing procedure only takes about 30 minutes, and most people experience only mild redness and swelling for a few hours after their procedure.

You may be a good candidate for the Plasma skin resurfacing procedure if you:

  • Have been considering facelift surgery or any type of laser skin rejuvenation procedure
  • Want to get rid of pre-cancerous lesions
  • Want to improve the overall texture and elasticity of the skin
  • Have acne scars and lesions that are difficult to hide with makeup
  • Want to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles
  • Need to tighten and tone loose or sagging skin

What Happens During a Portrait Plasma Skin Resurfacing Session?

The Portrait® Plasma skin resurfacing system works by delivering Nitrogen gas and controlled energy waves deep into the skin’s surface. Plasma pulses are produced during this process, and they heat up each layer of the skin to cause some internal damage. When the skin detects this injury, the body begins to produce collagen at a rapid rate and also speeds up the cell renewal process. As the skin heals and regenerates, the tissue continues to tighten and contract.

You may notice some results within a few weeks after your procedure, and will see progressive results for several weeks and months after your treatment. The treatment is powerful enough to keep increasing the level of collagen and elastin production for up to one year after your treatment so you will continue to see results for several months after your session. During the recovery period, you may also be a good candidate for injectable fillers and other treatments to enhance your results. Your cosmetic surgeon or skincare professional can make an appropriate recommendation based on what you want to achieve with your treatment plan.
