Portrait® Plasma Skin Regeneration

Your skin is the first line of defense against damaging UV rays

Living in San Diego means you’re constantly in the sun. From early morning jogs to relaxing afternoons at the beach, and your skin is the first line of defense against damaging UV rays. Along with the aging process, all of that sun exposure can leave your complexion wrinkled, saggy, and pigmented. If you’re unhappy with the appearance and texture of your skin but are hesitant to undergo a laser treatment, a new option in cosmetic dermatology may be the solution you’ve been searching for. Portrait® Plasma Skin Regeneration dramatically improves wrinkles, scars, and blemishes with a highly effective treatment that delivers incredible results.

What is Portrait® Plasma Skin Regeneration?

Portrait® Plasma Skin Regeneration is a cutting edge treatment that delivers nitrogen pulses to the skin, improving the signs of aging, sun damage, and other skin conditions. Best of all, because it does not involve lasers, injections, or radiofrequency energy, there’s little to no risk of side effects that are often associated with more aggressive skin treatments.

How does Portrait® Skin Regeneration work?

Portrait® Plasma Skin Regeneration uses plasma from nitrogen gas, which is a natural element that exists around us all the time, to gently resurface the skin. When delivered to the skin, the nitrogen plasma forms a natural protective shield over the top layers of the skin while generating controlled heat below the surface, which stimulates collagen and elastin production. Over time, new, healthy skin replaces damaged, wrinkled tissue to reveal a tighter, smoother, glowing complexion.

What areas and skin issues can Portrait® help treat?

Portrait® Plasma Skin Regeneration can be used on the face, neck, chest, and hands to treat a variety of skin concerns including:

Facial wrinkles

Skin laxity

Acne scars

Large pores

Poor skin texture

Uneven skin tone

Superficial skin lesions


Actinic keratosis

Viral papillomata

Seborrhea Keratosis

How many treatments will I need?

Most patients only need one high-powered treatment to see the incredible skin toning and tightening results of Portrait® Plasma Skin Regeneration. However, as many as four low-powered sessions may be required depending on an individual’s skin type and how many days are available for downtime.

What happens during a Portrait® Skin Regeneration treatment?

At Viva Wellness, we personalize the Portrait® Plasma Skin Regeneration procedure to target each patient’s specific concerns. Before the treatment begins, a topical anesthetic will be applied to the face to minimize any discomfort. Then, Dr. Tachuk will wave a special hand piece over the target area to deliver plasma energy to the epidermis without ever touching the skin. Most patients experience a slight warming sensation, but no pain. A full-face treatment usually takes less than 15 minutes.

What results can I expect and how long do they last?

The initial skin firming and smoothing effects of Portrait® Plasma Skin Regeneration can be seen immediately after treatment. The best part about Portrait® Plasma Skin Regeneration is that the results actually improve over time. Over the coming months, patients begin to notice scars fade, wrinkles disappear, and dark spots lighten. Results typically last up to a year.

What is the recovery time from a Portrait® treatment?

The recovery from Portrait® Plasma Skin Regeneration varies depending on the level of treatment. After a low-powered Portrait® treatment, patients experience some mild redness and flaking of the skin. A high-powered treatment comes with more significant browning and peeling that typically lasts for three to five days. Once the shedding process is complete, the new, fresh skin may appear slightly red for two to three days before revealing the smooth, youthful complexion beneath.

Dr. Tachuk will provide aftercare instructions that minimize your recovery time and maximize your results.
