Portrait Plasma: New Hope for Relieving Acne Scars
Portrait Plasma May Get Rid of Acne Scars
There's hope on the horizon for those who suffer from acne scars. Portrait Plasma, a procedure that has been used to treat wrinkles, skin lesions, and other skin issues has just been approved by the FDA as a treatment for acne scars.
What Is Portrait Plasma?
During a Portrait Plasma treatment a doctor passes the procedure tool over the affected area of skin without actually ever touching the skin. Plasma energy is then distributed evenly across the skin and collagen regeneration begins almost instantly. Results can be seen almost immediately after treatment, and they get better with time.
One of the best things about Portrait Plasma treatment is that it doesn't really hurt. There is a slight "warming" sensation when the skin is being treated, but it is temporary and is much less invasive than many of the other methods used for treating acne scars.
The Cost Factor
The cost is honestly one of the biggest drawbacks. Depending on where you live, a Portrait Plasma treatment will cost between $2,000 and $3,000. That is, however, a one-time price (multiple treatments are not needed) and the results can last for years if you take care of your skin properly.
How Effective Is It?
Well, it doesn't seem that Portrait Plasma will get rid of your scars entirely. According to studies done by Rhytec (the company who created Portrait Plasma), trials showed that the patients who underwent the treatment showed an average improvement an average improvement of 29 percent. Of those patients, 71 percent would recommend Portrait Plasma to a friend.
If you're looking for something to erase your acne scars completely, this might not be the treatment for you. However, if you want to reduce the appearance of your acne scars and improve your skin's tone and texture, Portrait Plasma may be the answer.
