MicroChanneling is microneedling… EVOLVED!
It has become one of the most sought-after and talked about treatments in aesthetic skincare. Come in and see what all the talk is about!
Naturalistic Approach to Anti-Aging
Firm, Tighten & Tone skin
Smooth Acne Scars
Stimulate Collagen and Elastin Production
Promote Cell Turnover
Microchanneling combined with powerful growth factor serums create a new paradigm for advanced scientific skincare and rejuvenation!
The microchanneling system by ProCell Therapies virtually erases wrinkles, improves the appearance of acne and traumatic scars, reduces acne inflammation, and nourishes hair follicles.
A series of 6 or more Procell treatments, about once a month can dramatically improve your skin’s firmness, smoothness, elasticity, hydration, sensitivity & tone.
Procell produces maximum stimulation, with minimal inflammation. This balanced approach to skin rejuvenation reduces recovery time to near zero, while maximizing results! The typical recovery involves just a day or so of mild redness, and any evidence that you’ve had “something done “can be covered with a quality mineral makeup within 90 minutes of treatment!
You’ll experience an almost immediate improvement in skin tone, texture, laxity, fine lines and wrinkles. And you’ll see long term improvement that resists the aging process when you complete a series of treatments as recommended by our team.
Visible improvement in aging skin, acne and other scarring, uneven or hyper-pigmented skin & overall tone and texture are visible after your first treatment with Procell.

Procell stimulates a more effective rejuvenation with less damage to skin, and more stimulation of stem cells.
By unlocking, and amplifying the bio-signals stem cells send to build fresher, healthier skin Procell creates superior skin rejuvenation results with better science!
Procell creates invisible micro-channels and stimulates specialized Stem Cells in your skin, and in your immune system to produce proteins called cytokines, peptides and growth factors that help rejuvenate the structure of your skin. MicroChanneling also induces the rapid production of high quality new collagen via stimulation, rather than the old methods that merely damaged the skin.
Microchanneling produces a clinically significant increase in the production of new collagen and elastin through the release of powerful peptides, growth factors and cytokines.

Q&A PROCELL MD MICROCHANNELING
Q: How many treatment should I do?
A: The number of treatments necessary will range greatly depending on what we are treating. On average, for light anti-aging treatments, 1-2 treatments may be sufficient. For deeper wrinkles and acne scarring, 4-5 treatments may be required to achieve desired results. There is no limit to the number of treatments that one can receive as long as adequate time passes in-between each treatment. And as always, maintaining your investment with maintenance sessions is highly recommended. Your aesthetician will guide you on a treatment plan for your specific needs.
Q: How long should I wait in between treatments?
A: Depending on the depth of the needle length used in your specific treatment, you may need anywhere from 1-4 weeks in-between sessions.
Q: What will this improve the appearance of?
A: Fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, acne scarring, [non-raised] keloid scarring, stretch marks, hair loss, and rosacea are all conditions that microneedling can improve.
Q: How long is the down time?
A: Wait a minimum of 90 minutes before applying anything else to this skin apart from what your esthetician applies. This includes sunscreen, makeup, moisturizer, etc. It typically takes 24-72 hours for all redness and pinprick scabbing to disappear.
Q: How will my face look immediately following a treatment?
A: There is a very wide range of normal reactions. Anything from little to no reaction, to a deep red flush, to pinpoint bleeding is normal. You may experience discomfort at the treatment site with transient redness and swelling which may last up to two hours or longer. The redness may last up to 2-3 days. The treated area may feel like a sunburn for a few hours after treatment. As this is a non-ablative procedure, more extreme reactions do not necessarily correspond to more extreme results. Infection is possible if proper aftercare guidelines are not followed.
Q: How long before I can expect to see results?
A: As soon as 1-2 weeks in some cases. 2-3 treatments for more extreme results. For hair regrowth it can take up to a month.
Q: Are there any contraindications?
A: Anyone with a condition that seriously impairs their immune system (such as cancer patients that are undergoing chemotherapy)
-Diabetes (due to problems with healing)
-Patients on Accutane (or any related acne medication should be discontinued for a minimum of 6 months prior to undergoing MicroNeedling.)
-Active Herpes Simplex in the treatment area (treatment is possible once the outbreak has healed, however it may be advisable to take prescription strength antiviral medication to keep this condition in remission during treatment series.)
-Dry skin (if your skin is overly dry, you will need to start a moisturizing regimen and ensure the condition is under control prior to undergoing MicroNeedling treatment.)
-Any active inflammatory skin condition (such as eczema, psoriasis, infection, rash or any type of dermatitis at the treatment site – it may further aggravate the condition)
Q: What should I do before my treatment?
A: It is best to stop the use of retinoids at least a day before treatment.
Q: Can I combine this with other treatments?
A: Typically combining treatments will result in more aggressive treatments and longer downtimes but can yield impressive results. Some treatments such as a light microdermabrasion or light chemical peel can be performed right before microneedling as long as the face is then cleaned before starting the microneedling treatment. This cannot be combined with procedures that involve the use of any topical solutions immediately following the microneedling. LED Light therapy is the only treatment highly recommended post-needling.
Q: Do I have to use the microneedling solution/aftercare serums?
A: YES! Microneedling stimulates keratinocytes in the skin to release growth factors that induce collagenesis. As you get older, these keratinocytes become less and less effective at this so the treatment on its own becomes less and less effective. Because of this the microneedling solutions become more and more imperative as a client progresses in age. Using the aftercare serums as well will cause the skin to continue producing growth factors even while in between treatments. Think of diet and exercise – microneedling without serums is like exercising without dieting. Results will be good with microneedling only, great with serums.
