An evolved version of microneedling -- microchanneling is an anti-aging facial rejuvenation treatment used to lift tighten the skin while reducing fine lines and wrinkles. A series of microchanneling sessions will dramatically improve your skin’s firmness, elasticity, hydration, sensitivity, tone, acne scars, brown spots and laxity – resulting in smoother, younger looking skin with minimal downtime.
Microchanneling creates tiny micro-channels in the skin that initiate a healing response. This response stimulates your body’s natural ability to release peptides, cytokines and growth factors that induce collagen and elastin production. As you get older, the stem cells that produce these vital proteins lose efficacy and decline in population. We pair Microchanneling with the use of cutting-edge growth factor serums for maximum results, improved healing and diminished signs of aging.
Microchanneling is a hero in the reduction of acne scars, surgery scars and stretch marks because it produces dramatic results on the face as well as the body. Scars improvement occurs by breaking down the old tissue and fostering the development of healthier skin.
Microchanneling treatments are minimally invasive, and are safe for all ages and skin types. Ideal candidates are those who seek improvement in the following areas:
We recommend a minimum of 3 Microchanneling treatments - performed one month apart - for maximum results of this facial treatment. Packages are available.
Microchanneling and microneedling differ in the type of device used to perform the treatment and the technique that is used. Typical microneedling devices involve the use of a handheld roller covered in tiny needles which is dragged over the skin. This method can actually tear the skin. Instead, the microchanneling device encompasses a linear stamping technique, resulting in clean, consistent micro-channels. This reduced tissue damage results in reduced inflammation and substantially decreased patient discomfort. Reduced inflammation means less downtime. Typical downtime after a microchanneling treatment is a few hours, compared to days of downtime with microneedling.
While some patients can tolerate the treatment with minimal physical discomfort, we apply numbing cream to the treatment area to alleviate this risk. After a mircochanneling session, there is no lingering discomfort other than the feeling of a mild sunburn.
Immediately after the treatment your skin may have mild redness and a tight, warm feeling. This should subside within 24 hours. It is safe to apply products and makeup after 6 hours. Mild flaking could occur a few days after the treatment.
Your will immediately notice an improvement in the quality and appearance of your skin after your first treatment. Collagen will continue to produce over the next 30 days. After multiple Microchanneling sessions you will notice more dramatic and lasting results.
We use a Microchanneling Growth Factor Serum that 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.
It is normal for treatments to result in some skin irritation, especially for patients with more sensitive skin. Always wait a minimum of 6 hours before putting anything else on the skin as the microchannels will still be open during this time. Your skin may be more sensitive than usual for several days after the treatment, so please avoid strong topicals until the skin returns to normal.
If you have any underlying condition that significantly impairs your immune system, it is a good idea to avoid Microchanneling. Some examples include: 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.
