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."
