Plasma Lift: Lift Your Spirits

Posted on Aug 20, 2008 01:54:09 AM |

Until recently cosmetic procedures designed to combat scars, fine lines, deep wrinkles and sun damage worked by treating the outer layer of facial skin. The traditional resurfacing lasers used in these treatments caused anguish, lengthy recovery times and a number of risks associated with aggressive skin resurfacing. Now a newly developed technology called Portrait Plasma Skin Regeneration,PSR or Plasma Lift, is changing the face of cosmetic procedures, literally.

What Is Portrait Plasma Skin Regeneration

Portrait PSR is a non-laser technique that provides the same regeneration and resurfacing results without the safety concerns of CO2 or Erbium lasers. It is unique in that it uses activated nitrogen plasma to remove and regenerate damaged skin.

Able to be used on a variety of skin types Portrait PSR transfers heat energy in a revolutionary non-contact treatment. This technique works on the deep layers of your skin while preserving the important outer layer, which acts as a natural dressing while your new skin regenerates. By modifying the collagen beneath the surface Portrait PSR not only provides immediate improvement to skin texture and elasticity but continues to work over the long term with claimed noticeable results for up to one year.

What Can I Expect From Portrait PSR

Portrait PSR is a flexible treatment. It can be used to target specific trouble areas such as around the eyes and on the cheeks or it can be used over the entire face for a more vibrant and smooth skin appearance. It works on deep wrinkles, improves skin tone, texture and elasticity and reduces the appearance of fine lines and scarring.

A full-face treatment will take about 20 minutes with localized treatments ranging from 5-10 minutes. You will be required to apply a topical anesthetic or possibly a small injection of anesthesia will be administered by your physician prior to the procedure. Resembling a laser the Portrait PSR tool will then direct condensed gas into the layers of your skin stimulating new collagen production. A sensation of heat will be felt throughout the treatment. Several days after the procedure your new skin will emerge and the old skin will shed. Healing time is minimal.

You can select between multiple low level treatments or a single higher-level treatment depending on your skin issues and desired effect.Full recovery time ranges from 10 days to 2 weeks.

How Is Portrait PSR Different From Other Facial Treatments

Traditionally facial skin resurfacing had to be performed by lasers. These lasers use non-specific light radiation to gently burn away and regenerate skin. Given the aggressive nature of these treatments side effects such as heat charring and other complications can occur. As the outer layer of skin is removed during laser resurfacing there’s extended downtime and significant anguish for the patient.

Portrait PSR instead works on the underlying skin leaving the important outer layer intact. By using nitrogen gas instead of light radiation there’s no risk of charring and minimal to no discomfort during the procedure. This combination reduces patient downtime considerably.

Who Is This Treatment For

Anyone who is considering laser surgery and/or plastic surgery are best candidates for Portrait PSR.
People who are looking to improve the appearance of aging skin and want to turn the clock back on wrinkles and sunspots.
Individuals who wish to regain lost skin elasticity and young texture.
Anyone who wants to remove discoloration and reduce the appearance of acne scars.
