Portrait Plasma™ skin regeneration is unlike any other treatment available today. It is not a laser, radio frequency, or light-based treatment. It is a completely new plasma energy technology that works both on and below the surface of the skin to modify the skin’s architecture so that new collagen is generated.
Portrait Plasma™ is effective in reducing the look of fine lines and deep wrinkles, treating sun-damaged skin, improving skin tone and texture, improving acne scars and tightening skin. It works on a variety of skin types.
During the short, in-office procedure, the unique scientific action of Portrait Plasma™ transfers plasma energy to the treated area without direct contact to the skin. This technique preserves the skin’s outer layers which act as a protective dressing until new skin regenerates. Downtime is minimal and clinical studies show that the improvements you see following your treatment will become even more dramatic over time.

Portrait Plasma™ works by delivering millisecond pulses of nitrogen-based plasma to the skin’s surface via the system’s novel handpiece. Nitrogen is a colorless, odorless gaseous element that is part of all living tissues and makes up 80% of the atmosphere. When introduced to ultra-high frequency energy, the nitrogen is converted into a highly energized state, or plasma. From the handpiece, the plasma transfers its energy onto the skin without any direct contact, causing a very controlled heating of tissue and a unique thermal profile with no charring. Unlike other skin-rejuvenation treatments, Portrait Plasma™ leaves the skin surface intact. It works via an entirely different mode of action that is effective both at and below the skin’s surface. It stimulates the body to regenerate the damaged structural elements of the skin in a way that other technologies and treatments cannot. The results seen following treatment get better over time, with clinical studies showing continuing improvement a year later – a unique and significant advantage that distinguishes Portrait® from all other skin treatments.
