Procell Microchanneling

Microchanneling is a noninvasive procedure designed to stimulate your body’s own natural ability to generate collagen, elastin, and other building blocks of healthy skin. By stimulating the outermost layers of the skin, microchanneling can help your body start this process without penetrating into living tissue.

As ProCell microchanneling treatments are minimally invasive, they are also safe for all skin types. Whether you are fair-skinned or dark, and even if you experience chronic breakouts, properly conducted microchanneling treatments will not result in hyperpigmentation, keloid scars, or other lasting negative side effects.

Benefits from ProCell Microchanneling

  • Decreased wrinkles

  • Improved acne scars

  • Reduced inflammation associated with acne breakouts

  • Firmer, tighter skin

  • Increased collagen and elastin production

  • Increased cell turnover

  • Downtime is approximately 90 minutes compared to days with traditional microneedling

How Is Microchanneling Different Than Microneedling?

Microchanneling is a more improved form of traditional microneedling.  The most significant difference is the technique used to create the channels. In microneedling, the esthetician drags the device across the skin to create the channels.  Procell Microchanneling uses a stamping method, resulting in a more uniform and controlled treatment that ensures comparable or better results with fewer side effects. The ProCell Microchanneling system also uses smaller needles than traditional microneedling devices, making it more comfortable and reducing recovery time.  Many clients who have had both therapies seem to favor microchanneling over traditional microneedling.

How Often Should I Get Microchanneling Treatments?

Most clients will see results after just one ProCell Microchanneling treatment. However, for optimal results, getting 3-6 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart is recommended.  Like most treatments, your age, skin condition, lifestyle/habits, and goals will determine the frequency you need to receive treatments.

How Does ProCell Microchanneling Work?

ProCell Microchanneling is a minimally invasive procedure that uses microneedles to create microscopic channels in the skin. This triggers the body’s natural healing response, which leads to the production of collagen and elastin. Collagen is a protein that gives skin its elasticity and strength, while elastin helps skin return to its original shape after being stretched or pulled.

In addition to stimulating collagen and elastin production, ProCell Microchanneling also promotes cell turnover. This is the process by which new cells replace old ones. As we age, our cells don’t turn over as quickly as they used to. This leads to duller, drier skin. ProCell Microchanneling can help improve the appearance of aging skin by increasing cell turnover and revealing fresh, new cells.

How long before I can expect to see results?

Though neocollagenesis (the production of new collagen) can take several weeks, it is not abnormal to notice an improvement in the quality and appearance of your skin within the first 24 hours. After 2-3 treatments a thicker more robust, collagen filled cellular matrix will produce more consistent and noticeable improvement. And 6 or more treatments may be recommended for scarring, laxity and wrinkles.
