A nonsurgical facial and body rejuvenation treatment that gives your skin a firm and youthful appearance
Microchanneling is a minimally invasive and nonablative skin treatment that reduces fine lines, acne scars, large pores, wrinkles, and burn wounds. It involves the use of fine needles to create controlled micro-injuries on your skin.
Each micro-injury results in a channel that prompts your skin to release serum containing cytokines and growth factors such as collagen, elastin, fibroblasts, and melanocytes — the ingredients for fresher, more resilient skin.
Besides keeping your epidermis intact and allowing rapid natural healing response, microchanneling:
Precision microneedles are tapped into the skin creating uniform microchannels. Using the ProCell System, a single tap will create hundreds of thousands of microchannels.
Each microchannel is surrounded by healthy tissue, which enhances the healing process. In response to each micro-injury, an inflammatory healing process initiates the formation of new collagen.
Over time, the repeated healing process will build new collagen. This improves the surface texture and the overall appearance of your skin.
This depends on your goal. For light anti-aging, 1–2 treatments are generally sufficient. For deeper wrinkles and acne scarring, you might need 5 or more treatments to achieve desired results. There is no limit to the number of treatments you can receive as long as adequate time passes in between each treatment.
A normal reaction can look like anything from pinpoint bleeding for longer lengths to a pink or red blush to nothing at all.
Sometimes a single treatment gives your skin a fresher, plumper look almost immediately. After two weeks, you can begin seeing new skin formation.
Yes! Combining treatments generally mean longer downtimes, but also more impressive results. Treatments such as a light microdermabrasion or light chemical peel can be performed right before Microchanneling.
