There are constantly new esthetic treatments coming on the market and sometimes it's hard for us to know which ones are really going to bring results (results without harm I might add) and which ones are just a fad or waste of money. We were attracted to this particular treatment for 2 main reasons. 1.) It is minimally invasive and not painful with no side effects 2.) It really works! How do we know? We've tried it and we're truly impressed! If you have acne scaring, age spots or wrinkles, this is the treatment for you! Check out some of these before and after photos - they speak for themselves! I've also included a list of frequently asked questions. We've done a lot of research on MicroChanneling and there are several versions out there right now. We chose ProCell because of their commitment to high quality, they are a family owned company that does their manufacturing here in the United States and they didn't take any shortcuts creating this award-winning MicroChanneling device!
MicroChanneling and Stem-Cell Therapy Frequently Asked Questions
What is MicroChanneling?
MicroChanneling temporarily creates hundreds of thousands of micro-channels into the skin to be “filled” by new healthy collagen. It also allows topical solutions to absorb up to 300% more effectively. During treatment, serums applied containing naturally derived growth factors, peptides and cytokines restore and amplify biological communication during the wound-healing cascade that an aging immune system no longer provides.
A perfect balance of gentile stimulation of your skin produces “wound healing” without a wound, complimented by the infusion of nutritious and vital factors responsible for helping you produce your best skin!
What does the growth factor serum contain? Does it have human tissue in it?
The growth factor serum used with our MicroChanneling treatments does not contain live human stem cells. Instead it contains proteins that are manufactured in a lab using stem cells.
What can I expect during the treatment?
Your skin will be thoroughly cleansed, lightly exfoliated and disinfected. Next the MicroChanneling device will be used to “stamp” micro-channels into the skin. This is not a painful treatment but you may feel light sensitivity in certain areas. Growth factor serum will be applied liberally during this process and your provider will make several passes over the entire face and neck until the skin takes on a light pink appearance. When the micro-channeling process is finished a cooling and moisturizing mask will be applied. Each treatment can take 60-90 minutes and includes a week supply of Cellular Renewal and Healing Accelerator Serum to begin using the morning after your treatment.
How does MicroChanneling differ from other cosmetic treatments?
Unlike lasers, MicroChanneling breaks up pigment mechanically and remodels the collagen without heat or light. As the heat is removed from the process, it makes for a much safer, more comfortable, more consistent treatment, with very little or no downtime. Unlike medical micro needling, MicroChanneling does not break the epidermal/dermal junction so there is less pain, no bleeding and little or no risk of infection. MicroChanneling is also far less expensive than medical micro needling.
How many treatments do I need and how often should I be treated?
For light anti-aging results 2-3 treatments may be sufficient. For deeper wrinkles and acne scarring 4-6 treatments may be required. To improve hair loss a minimum of 5 treatments is needed. For wrinkles and scarring we recommend allowing 3 weeks in between treatments, for hair-loss a treatment every 2 weeks is advised for best results.
Is there any downtime after MicroChanneling treatments?
Any visible skin irritation is often gone after as little as two hours following your treatment. Wait a minimum of 2 hours before applying anything to your skin after treatment. This includes sunscreen, skincare products or makeup. Wait 2-3 days before resuming the use of irritating or inflammatory skin products like retinol or exfoliating products.
How much does MicroChanneling cost?
A treatment of the entire face and neck is $249. (Adding the chest area to your treatment is $50) We offer a pre-paid package of 5 treatments for $996 ($249 savings). We also offer a package of 5 treatments with four monthly payments of $264.50. You also have the option to add Dermaplaning or LED Light therapy to your treatment for only $35 each.
