Jennifer Matthews: It's not a laser, it's plasma. Adam Rubinstein: When I first heard about plasma technology. It seemed like, you know, I'd watched plasma television, but I don't know if I'd want to use it for a treatment. Jennifer Matthews: But now plastic surgeon Adam Rubinstein is one of only a few doctors in the country performing portrait skin regeneration. The plasma heats skin deep within the surface and promotes new collagen growth in 30 minutes. The downtime, about a week of reddened skin that looks like sunburn. Adam Rubinstein: This really offers a patient a chance to have that rejuvenation done without having to worry about extended recovery time. Jennifer Matthews: After one month, Arlene is very satisfied. She has fewer wrinkles and a more even skin tone. Julia Garzon had a partial treatment one year ago. She's not as happy with the results and says it hurt. Julia Garzon: It's very uncomfortable. I mean you're looking pretty raw.

Jennifer Matthews: Another benefit, patients like Julia continue to see improvement for up to a year. So, as with most cosmetic procedures, it's up to you to decide if the results are worth it!
