Microneedling

ProCell Micro-Channeling

ProCell micro-channeling is a form of collagen induction therapy consisting of creating invisible micro-channels into the dermis to stimulate collagen and elastin through the release of beneficial peptides, cytokines, and growth factors. Collagen production increases the thickness of the skin while improving the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, uneven skin tone and can also help reduce and minimize acne scarring and stretch marks.
 
The ProCell Micro-channeling technology is more effective in skin rejuvenation by creating vertical channels straight into the skin, penetrating deeper while not dragging and pulling against the skin like other micro-needling devices. This in turn causes less trauma to the face and drastically reduces downtime. It is a great alternative for skin rejuvenation for all ages and for all skin types.
 
While IPL, chemical peels, and laser treatments produce improvement of the skin by injuring the skin and causing a healing response, ProCell Micro-channeling is special in that it stimulates growth factors to heal the skin with minor damage and minimal inflammation.  It also allows for product absorption deep into the skin, which helps aid in boosting your own body’s collagen and elastin production.
 
The number of needling sessions depends on the individual’s skin condition. Three or four treatments may be recommended for mild to moderate acne scarring, whereas deeper scars and stretch marks may require upward of five treatments. An interval of 4 to 6 weeks between treatments is typically recommended. The more treatments completed the more optimal and significant results you will get.

Collagen induction therapy, also known as microneedling, is nearly painless and has been shown to have incredible effect on the health and beauty of your skin. The concept is simple, by inflicting thousands of imperceptible injuries to the top layer of skin, the body is encouraged to produce additional collagen and regenerate the surface layer with fresh, unblemished skin. It’s no surprise it’s becoming one of the most popular beauty treatments around.

Did You Know?

Microneedling is essentially performing the same process accomplished by using lasers, but does so without the application of heat or light. The process is instead mechanical, and produces some amazing anti-aging effects by encouraging the body to rejuvenate itself. Additionally it has a lower downtime and doesn’t lead to the same photo-sensitivity as can be experienced with the laser treatments.

Can Microneedling Reverse Sun Damage?

Absolutely. One of the best things for damaged skin is an influx of new collagen, an influx that occurs when the skin is treated with microneedling. Collagen has been shown to help reverse sun damage and help with discoloration. Even more amazing is that this process has been shown to be effective in the treatment of melasma, a condition in which hyperpigmentation results in brown blotching on the skin.

I’ve Got Large Pores, Will Microneedling help?

Absolutely! While poking your skin full of thousands of tiny holes may not sound like the most intuitive way to shrink your pores, but the results speak for themselves. Pores actually dramatically reduce in size as a result of the plumping effect of renewed collagen, making them appear smaller or completely closed.

Where Can I Receive Microneedling?

Microneedling can be done anywhere on the body where you want to see shrunken pores, tighten skin, and renewed elasticity. Most treatments of this type are only able to be used on the facial area, while microneedling can be done anywhere you have stretch marks, acne scars, or just aging skin you’d like to see rejuvenated. Some of the most popular locations are the back, legs, and butt.

Is Microneedling Safe For Use With Scarred Areas?

Not only can you use microneedling on scars, this process has shown incredible restorative effects when used on patients experiencing acne scarring. If you’re looking to address particularly severe scars, you’ll want to speak to your dermatologist for treatment. Using specially designed microneedling equipment they’ll be able to help you restore elasticity and vibrancy to your scars, reducing their visibility dramatically.
