What is Microchanneling?
Think of microchanneling as the next generation of microneedling! Similar to microneedling, microchanneling is a minimally invasive procedure designed to stimulate your body’s natural ability to generate collagen, elastin, and other building blocks of healthy skin. The procedure makes uniform holes in the outermost layer of your skin, the same size & the same depth, without damaging or scratching your skin. Unlike microneedling, micro-filaments are gently applied to the skin with a stamper-like tool (versus a microneedling roller-type tool can drag and scrape the skin), thereby safely creating thousands of micro channels in your skin. These tiny holes, also called channels, stimulate the outermost layers of skin, to help jump-start your body's natural healing process. Also, the microchannels allow the ProCell serum, which has stem cell technology, to penetrate deeper into the skin giving better results. This treatment is clinically proven to increase collagen & elastin production, which in turn increases the thickness of the skin while improving the appearance of wrinkles, uneven skin tone & texture, fine lines, acne scars/surgical scars, stretch marks and more. There is little to no downtime. This procedure produces maximum stimulation with minimal inflammation!

What results can I expect?
Though neocollagenesis (the production of new collagen) can take several weeks, it is not uncommon to notice an improvement in the quality and appearance of your skin after the first week. The benefits build over 6 - 8 weeks, as collagen production kicks in. For light anti-aging and other moderate skin concerns, 2 - 3 treatments will produce a thicker more robust, collagen filled cellular matrix which will result in a more consistent and very noticeable improvement in your overall skin. For heavy scarring, laxity and/or deep wrinkles, a series of 4 - 6 treatments, a month apart, may be recommended.
How long will the microchanneling results last?
In most cases, microchanneling procedure results should last 2+ years. Results may vary, dependant upon how well you maintain your skin post-procedure and your lifestyle chices.
