A New Way to Look Younger

Plasma Portrait™ is a laser technology that delivers noticeable results by reducing pigmentation, improving fine lines and wrinkles, and perfecting skin’s tone and texture. In addition to leaving skin looking younger and refreshed, Plasma Portrait can also be an effective treatment when used to correct acne scars.
This industry-leading technology is used in a similar fashion to other ablative lasers (which destroy layers of the skin) such as the CO2 and erbium lasers, and new generation fractional technologies (which provide deep heating of the skin) to correct wrinkling, pigmentation, skin smoothing and acne scarring.
Based on a principle similar to plasma televisions in that it converts plasma into activated nitrogen which acts to gently heat the skin, Plasma Portrait technology has been used in medicine for many years. The advantage of Plasma Portrait over other laser technologies is that it allows the skin to repair itself in a shorter time frame. This leads to less side effects and shorter healing time than experienced with more invasive laser technologies.
