Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that stimulates your body’s healing to promote healthier, smoother skin. Dr. Heskett offers some of the most advanced microneedling technology in the form of Dermapen® and MDpen.
This device has tiny needles that glide across the face to create micro-wounds that are invisible to the eye but trigger your body’s healing responses. As a result of microneedling, you experience improved skin texture, tone, and resilience.
The Dermapen and MDPen are unique in that they use a spring-loaded, stamping technology that allows for customization of the depth and speed of the micro-injuries.
Dr. Heskett combines microneedling with PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, which is a sample of your blood that’s spun down in a centrifuge to concentrate the platelets and powerful rejuvenating enzymes. Platelets, stem cells, and rejuvenating enzymes all together have enormous healing properties. PRP optimizes your results and helps you achieve a smooth, youthful-looking complexion.
Microneedling and PRP is a powerful way to fight a number of skin concerns, including:
Microneedling and PRP have also been proven to help regrow hair on the scalp.
The procedure works for all skin types, even those who have a risk of hyperpigmentation with traditional laser treatments.
Prior to your microneedling session, your provider takes a sample of blood from your arm in a conventional blood draw. They use it to prepare the PRP.
For microneedling, you relax in a chair, and a numbing cream is applied to your skin. Dr. Heskett glides the Dermapen or MDPen handpiece across the treatment areas. You may feel warmth and tingling during the procedure. Once the microneedling is complete, she applies the PRP and allows it to soak into your dermis. Lastly, a proprietary stem cell mask and a peptide mask are sequentially applied to boost immediate healing and reduce downtime by 50%.
You don’t need to schedule downtime following your microneedling and PRP appointment, but it may take a few days for your skin to heal, so don’t schedule any major events until you know how your skin reacts.
If you’re ready to experience microneedling and PRP for yourself, call the Wellpath for an appointment or use the online tool to book.
