The Doctors test out a treatment that claims to remove wrinkles, tighten skin and improve complexion and it never even touches the skin! Could this new non-invasive treatment be the answer to your wrinkle problem?
Dermatologist Dr. Jason Emer demonstrates the plasma pen procedure on patient Cassandra, who is not happy with her eye wrinkles and wants a treatment that does not require much downtime.
Dr. Emer says the device can help create collagen and tighten the skin almost instantly. Before the procedure, the skin is numbed and Dr. Emer says patients usually only feel a small shock. He says this treatment as very minimal downtime and notes the healing time can be increased if combined with platelet-rich plasma.
As for risks, Dr. Emer says any type of energy-based skincare treatment can result in scarring or bumps, and he stresses that people seek out an expert and also do the proper pre-treatment skincare prep and to also only do these treatments conservatively.
Dr. Emer says the effects of the treatment, which is usually small dots or marks on the treated area, will last anywhere from 3 to 7 days and notes a laser treatment can result in swollen eyes that can last up to a week. He says patients will continue to build collagen for 3 to 6 months and each treatment costs $500 to $1000 dollars per area, per treatment.
