I've heard through the grapevine that Rhytec, the company that makes the Portrait skin rejuvenation machine, has closed its doors. This leaves the hundreds of physicians who own this machine in a bind. If another company does not produce the nozzles that are necessary for their plasma treatments, then these doctors will be left with a very expensive (approximately $60,000 from what I've heard) piece of useless machinery.
So now we see the credit crunch affecting the cosmetic and plastic surgery industry. Some good friends of mine, well-respected plastic surgeons Dr. Steve Svehlak and Dr. Dan Yamini have been using Portrait with very nice results. Hopefully the procedure can continue on with a new manufacturer.
Thanks for reading.
