ONE OF OUR MOST POPULAR TREATMENTS. ...YOUR BODY HEALING ITSELF
We are proud to introduce Dermapen to Whistler. Dr. Sarah Kennea is a Dermapen approved physician. The medica medical version of The Dermapen 3™ offers unparalleled collagen induction, and is a physician only treatment, should not be confused with the less effective Dermapen offered by cosmetic aestheticians.
Dermapen 3™ works by harnessing the body’s innate ability to re-grow and repair the skin as a response to micro-damage. This small, hand-held device delivers up to 1,300 micro punctures per second into the skin, thus stimulating the production of collagen and elastin and normalizing various skin functions.
The treatment is similar to laser treatments, but without the severe side effects or the long recovery time. There are some studies that show it is more effective than traditional microdermabrasion and chemical peels. The disposable needles reduces the risk of cross-contamination and the adjustable depth allows treatment that is adaptable to individual needs.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) & Dermapen
AND WHAT TO EXPECT...
The “platelet-rich fibrin matrix” (PRFM) method, marketed in the United States and canada as Selphyl and also known as the vampire filler or vampire facelift, is a process in cosmetic aesthetics. It is a way of extracting platelets from the patient’s own blood and using them as a dermal filler – that is, as a substance injected under the skin of the face to fill out wrinkles so as to provide a more youthful appearance.
During the procedure, Blood is drawn from the patient’s arm and spun in a centrifuge to separate out the platelets, which are then injected back under the patient’s facial skin. It can also be combined with other fillers, and a procedure using this combination has been trademarked as “vampire facelift”.
