The First “Plasma” Energy System To Regenerate The Skin ….. There’s Nothing Else Like It!
Every once in a while the science of beauty takes a great leap forward. Something comes along that changes everything – a breakthrough that opens the door to new possibilities and raises results to a whole new level. Portrait Skin Regeneration is unlike any other treatment available today. It is the first and only technology proven to deliver true skin regeneration.
While some treatments lead to improved skin only at the surface, clinically proven Portrait skin resurfacing alters structures below the surface creating unique conditions for continuing regeneration and improvements in wrinkles, tone, texture and discoloration. Results are immediate and long-lasting with clinical studies showing improvements for years after treatment.
Supported by extensive research and more than 350 clinical study treatments, Portrait is the only technology delivering true skin regeneration.
How much experience does Dr. Clevens have with this innovative technology?
Dr. Clevens offers extensive experience in the use of Portrait skin resurfacing. One of the first doctors to perform Portrait skin regeneration in the Southeast, Dr. Clevens is often called upon to teach other doctors how to properly perform the skin resurfacing procedure. Dr. Clevens has lectured in Boca Raton, Orlando, Toronto, Newport Beach and elsewhere sharing his experience with other doctors.
What makes Portrait different from other available treatments?
The ground-breaking science behind Portrait makes it different from other treatments in several important ways. Portrait is the first and only treatment clinically proven to regenerate skin. Its unique energy-transferring mechanism initiates regeneration deep below the skin’s surface, remodeling the skin’s architecture. This creates dramatic results that improve over time as the new architecture progressively replaces the old.
What kind of improvements can I expect to see?
You will see improvements in skin texture, tone and reduction of fine wrinkles at lower levels of treatment and reduction of deep wrinkles at higher levels of treatment. New healthier collagen growth will improve contours and enhance your overall appearance.
What does the procedure feel like and how long does it take?
You may experience a localized sensation of heat during the brief procedure. A topical anesthetic is generally applied before the procedure, although Dr. Clevens may recommend other approaches depending upon your specific needs. A full face treatment usually takes less than 30 minutes.
How many treatments do I need?
Your physician will recommend an appropriate treatment regimen for you. Typically this varies from 1 to 3 treatments depending upon the desired outcome, your skin condition and the level of improvement you are seeking relative to downtime. It usually takes from one or two days to under a week for your skin to appear normal with or without make-up.
How does it work?
The innovative Portrait technology transfers nitrogen plasma energy to the architecture of the skin using a non-contact technique producing controlled, uniform regeneration of your skin.
What should I expect following treatment?
At lower levels of treatment there will be some mild redness and flaking of the skin. At higher levels, the outer layer of skin browns and is shed 3 to 5 days after treatment. Once this occurs, the redness of the regenerated skin will last for 2-3 days. Shedding may take a little longer at the edges of the treated area. Localized redness may also linger slightly in some patients. On darker skin, the localized redness may appear as a darker spot that lightens over time.
How soon will I see a difference and how long will it last?
You will see results soon after your treatment. However, one of the most striking and unique advantages of Portrait is that it stimulates a natural process of regeneration, producing results that progressively improve over time. Clinical studies show that this improvement progression continues for at least one year after treatment. Patients are amazed when they compare their appearances before treatment and twelve months later.
Is the Portrait procedure safe?
Portrait has demonstrated an excellent safety profile in clinical studies. It does not involve intense light radiation as found with ablative laser treatments, which are known to be associated with scarring and often protracted periods of downtime. It is also far easier to use and control than messy, chemical peeling agents that corrode your skin.
Can Portrait be used with other treatments?
Dr. Clevens will advise you on the best way to combine treatments such as Botox or dermal fillers. If you have had other procedures within the last 12 months you should discuss the timing of your Portrait procedure with your physician.
How much does the procedure cost?
The cost for Portrait ® will depend upon the treatment regimen you and Dr. Clevens choose. In general, the cost is comparable to other similar procedures. However, with superior, longer-lasting results at every treatment level and fewer treatments required to get the results you want, Portrait is a very economical choice.
