Portrait Plasma Laser Resurfacing Scottsdale AZ & Gilbert AZ
About Portrait Plasma Laser Resurfacing Treatment
Portrait® laser resurfacing is a skin care treatment that delivers effective, rapid results. Unlike any other skin rejuvenation therapy today, Portrait® delivers nitrogen plasma energy below the surface of your skin to generate new collagen. This offers substantial cosmetic effects on the skin to improve skin tone, texture and laxity, and may even reduce more severe symptoms of chronic skin conditions.
With tiny pulses of nitrogen plasma, Portrait® PSR3 lasers deliver effective results without the serious risk or extensive downtime. Because the procedure of laser skin resurfacing allows the skin’s most outer layer to remain intact, new skin is protected as it regenerates. Best of all, the healing process peels away years of skin damage including sun spots, rough texture, fine lines, and deep wrinkles.

What to Expect From Portrait Plasma Laser Resurfacing Treatments?
When you reach the office of Dr. Rochlin for your portrait plasma laser resurfacing treatment in Scottsdale AZ & Gilbert AZ, the procedure begins with the topical application of an anesthetic cream. Then, our licensed aesthetician, Tammy Cullumber will administer the treatment about five mm from the skin’s surface.
Delivering pulses of plasma energy from the device, the portrait plasma laser resurfacing treatment usually takes between 30-45 minutes. The procedure is relatively painless and only causes a mild redness of the skin for 2-3 days following the procedure. Then, the skin will turn a brownish color and peel off.
Most people are able to return to their regular routines a few days after the procedure, depending on the strength of the treatment.
As we age, the skin’s top layer (epidermis) becomes thinner and a loss of collagen and elastin is common. Gradually, this can result in signs of aging like wrinkles, creases, and crepey skin. Plasma laser resurfacing treatments boost the skin’s natural regeneration process for younger looking skin.
Plasma skin regeneration is a rejuvenation therapy used to improve the appearance of your skin. It is used to address age spots, sun spots, jowl sagging, loose skin as well as creasing, wrinkling, and scarring. If you notice any of the aforementioned, you are a good candidate for this treatment.
