ProCell Microchanneling

What is it?

ProCell Microchanneling involves using a specialized device with fine needles to create controlled micro-injuries in the skin. These micro-injuries prompt the skin's natural healing process, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. Over time, this leads to improvements in various skin concerns such as fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and uneven texture. The procedure is non-invasive and typically results in noticeable skin rejuvenation with minimal downtime.

How does it work?

Collagen is like the scaffolding that holds up your skin, keeping it firm and smooth. When your skin gets injured—whether it's a small cut or even these tiny micro-injuries from microchanneling—it's like sending a signal to your body that says, "Hey, we need to fix this!"

In response to that signal, your body's natural repair system kicks into gear. It's a bit like calling in the construction crew to repair a damaged building. Special cells in your skin rush to the site of the injury and start laying down new collagen fibers, sort of like rebuilding the damaged area from scratch.

As these new collagen fibers form, they help strengthen and support your skin, making it look firmer and more youthful. It's like giving your skin a natural facelift from the inside out!

So, when microchanneling creates those tiny injuries in your skin, it's actually triggering this amazing repair process, leading to increased collagen production and ultimately, smoother, more radiant skin. It's like giving your skin a gentle nudge to help it look its best.

How is it different from traditional microneedling?

ProCell Microchanneling and traditional microneedling share similarities but also have some differences. Both procedures involve using a device with fine needles to create controlled micro-injuries in the skin, stimulating the body's natural healing response and collagen production.

However, there are some distinctions between the two:

  1. Technology: ProCell Microchanneling typically utilizes a specialized device that combines microneedling with the application of specialized serums or growth factors. These serums are applied to the skin during the procedure and are intended to penetrate deeper into the skin through the microchannels created by the needles. Traditional microneedling may or may not involve the application of serums during the procedure.

  2. Depth and Precision: ProCell Microchanneling often allows for more precise control over the depth and density of the micro-injuries created in the skin compared to traditional microneedling. This precision can result in a more tailored treatment approach, specifically targeting individual skin concerns.

  3. Enhanced Results: Due to the combination of microneedling with the application of specialized serums or growth factors, ProCell Microchanneling may yield enhanced results compared to traditional microneedling alone. The targeted delivery of these active ingredients can further boost collagen production and address specific skin issues like hyperpigmentation or aging.

  4. Downtime and Recovery: Both procedures typically have minimal downtime and require relatively short recovery periods. However, ProCell Microchanneling may offer slightly quicker recovery times due to its ability to deliver targeted nutrients to the skin, promoting faster healing and regeneration.

​It's important to note that individual results can vary, and the efficacy of ProCell Microchanneling may depend on the individual's skin characteristics.​

FAQ:

Does it hurt?

No. My client's comfort is my priority. Before beginning the treatment, I will apply a topical anesthetic cream containing Lidocaine to numb the area. Rest assured, I will confirm that you are fully numb before starting the procedure.

How long is the downtime?

Usually, there's minimal downtime after the procedure. In the initial 48 hours, you might experience mild swelling, redness, and tenderness in the treated area. This is completely normal since we've intentionally stimulated the skin's healing process. After a few days, your skin will return to normal. Some people may experience drier skin for the first week and possibly flaking in rare cases. 

How long before I 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.

Can I wear makeup after my treatment? 

You should avoid applying makeup or other skincare products to the treated area for at least 24 hours after your treatment.

Who should not get a ProCell treatment?

Examples include but are not limited to active radiation or chemotherapy, uncontrolled diabetes, chronic inflammatory skin disease, Accutane in the past 2 years, hemophilia or similar bleeding disorder. Also anyone with stainless steel allergies should not do this treatment. We also discourage treatments for those who are pregnant or nursing. Also anyone with active acne that can not be avoided during treatment.

Who can get a ProCell treatment? 

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.

What should I use on my skin after the treatment?

A gentle cleanser and moisturizer that is free of any exfoliating acids. I will provide you with 2 serums, Cellular Renewal Serum and Healing Accelerator Serum. You will use these for 7 days after your treatment. Use of the ProCell aftercare products ensure the skin continuously receives potent, robust, pristine peptides, cytokines and growth factors after your treatment. It is also very important to use daily SPF 30 or higher and avoid direct sunlight for the first week. 

What are in the serums that are used during the treatment and aftercare?

ProCell's Microchannel Delivery Serum contains bone marrow-derived growth factors in a hyaluronic acid suspension. Both of these elements are naturally-occurring in the human body. There are no human, animal, or plant cells, DNA, blood, or any other foreign substances. The product has been used safely and effectively for over a decade.
