What to Expect From Portrait Plasma Laser Resurfacing Treatments?
When you reach the office of Dr. Rochlin for your portrait plasma laser resurfacing treatment in Scottsdale AZ & Gilbert AZ, the procedure begins with the topical application of an anesthetic cream. Then, our licensed aesthetician, Tammy Cullumber will administer the treatment about five mm from the skin’s surface.
Delivering pulses of plasma energy from the device, the portrait plasma laser resurfacing treatment usually takes between 30-45 minutes. The procedure is relatively painless and only causes a mild redness of the skin for 2-3 days following the procedure. Then, the skin will turn a brownish color and peel off.
Most people are able to return to their regular routines a few days after the procedure, depending on the strength of the treatment.
