Dr. Turk in September's Harper's Bazaar By Jon Turk on August 21, 2012

Excerpts from"New Wrinkle Eraser," written by Jessica Prince:

"Doubly swaddled in a white robe and a plush blanket, New York handbag designer Brett Heyman lies back in the Manhattan office of plastic surgeon Jon Turk,  awaiting a younger complexion. There's little need to be anxious because, unlike most visitors to Turk's renowned Fifth Avenue practice, the 32-year-old founder of Edie Parker is not here to go under the knife. In fact, Heyman has never had even a single Botox injection or filler. She is preparing for her second Dermapen treatment, the newest in-office procedure that promises to soften facial wrinkles, minimize pores, fade scars, and leave patients with brighter, tighter, and younger skin--all courtesy of 11 tiny needles. 'In my opinion, anyone ages 35 to 60 should be getting these treatments,' Turk says. 'We are not looking at it as a separate procedure like laser but as something that should be incorporated into a person's skin care.'"

"...[P]erhaps the most revolutionary aspect of Dermapen is its ability to act as a 'dermal infusion device,' says Turk, meaning that prior to treatment your practitioner can apply a blend of active ingredients onto your face (think vitamin C and hyaluronic acid), which are then driven deep below the skin's surface through channels created by the needles..."

"...[A]ccording to Turk, Dermpen can produce results similar to those of Fraxel lasers but without the prolonged redness and pain. 'Fraxel laser is a state-of-the-art treatment, but it's difficult to use on dark-skinned patients, and the downtime is often greater than advertised,' Turk explains. 'So if you can find a device that can do everything that Fraxel can do, or close to it, and can take away some of the negatives, then you have a very appealing product.'"
