Portrait Plasma Skin Regeneration Resurfaces at Prestigious Symposium
Date:9/14/2011

NYACK, N.Y. and SWANSEA, Wales, Sept. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- At the historic Grove Park Inn in Asheville, North Carolina, Portrait Plasma Skin Regeneration returned as a technology discussed at the advanced symposium, Controversies & Conversations in Laser and Cosmetic Surgery, directed by Drs. Kenneth A. Arndt and Jeffrey S. Dover of SkinCare Physicians of Chestnut Hill, MA. In the session titled, "Does the choice of wavelength energy sources and/or use of fractionation make a difference in the treatment of photo-aging and scarring," pre-eminent panelists presented and discussed clinical results and attributes of an array of technologies used in their practices.

Portrait Plasma Skin Regeneration has returned to the market under new ownership and worldwide support by the Energist Group (Swansea, UK and Nyack, NY). Portrait is FDA-cleared for the treatment of superficial and deep wrinkles, skin discoloration, precancerous and benign skin lesions, as well as acne scars. Chris Zachary, MD, Chair of Dermatology, University of California, Irvine, had commented, "I am personally delighted to see this technology back in the market, as it provides a well-researched and very effective mechanism for skin rejuvenation." And as a panelist at Controversies, he further stated, "We're delighted to use plasma again." Ken Arndt, MD, director of the symposium, added, "Yes, we're all glad it's back."

Portrait Plasma provides dramatic cosmetic results by delivering a unique thermal profile that stimulates a significant response by the entire skin architecture without creating an open wound like ablative, chromophore-targeted, and fractional technology procedures. Suzanne Kilmer, MD, founder of the Laser & Skin Surgery Center of Northern California, and past president of The American Society of Lasers in Medicine and Surgery (ASLMS), commented, "Where to deliver heat is the key in treatments." She further said, "Having the skin intact is very important and acts as a natural biological dressing; it is less uncomfortable for the patient....This is the beauty of the [plasma] technology, and Portrait also provides significant tightening."

Brian Biesman, MD, oculoplastic and laser surgeon, founder of the Nashville Centre for Laser and Facial Surgery and also a past president of ASLMS, who performed an extensive clinical study of Portrait Plasma to treat and tighten the upper and lower eyelids, added that, "Portrait is more versatile compared to full CO2 [treatments]." In the aesthetic, non-surgical skin treatment market for wrinkles and sun damage, full/non-fractionated CO2 has been considered the gold standard of treatment.

Jonathan Prutton, CEO of Energist Group, commented, "We are delighted to hear the comments from such a prestigious panel of experts at the Controversies symposium. Portrait Plasma is a keystone technology for Energist. We're up and running to provide nozzles and support to the physicians who already own the system and to new customers now acquiring the technology. The unique Portrait system offers a wide range of treatments from lunchtime/MedSpa to full resurfacing procedures, making it one of the most versatile, as well as effective, aesthetic technologies available in the market today."

The Portrait Plasma technology, clinically proven in over 30 IRB studies and in day-to-day clinical use in some 500 installations worldwide, is in its infancy compared to lasers, light sources, and radio frequency treatments. Prutton further commented that, "Portrait Plasma's full potential is yet to be realized -- and Energist is committed to developing the future of plasma skin regeneration for patients and providers of the treatments."
