Innovative and transformational, micro channeling rejuvenates your skin from the dermis-up. Like worn out springs in a mattress, the collagen in our deeper layers of skin break down as a result of UV and pollution. Over time, lines and wrinkles develop, and the skin loses its firmness and vibrancy. Micro channeling encourages the body’s natural collagen synthesis to firm the skin from it’s foundation and deliver long-lasting results with minimal downtime.
A versatile and customizable procedure, micro channeling can also be used to treat acne scars and depressions. As the skin inside the scar is wounded, collagen is made by the body and gradually lifts the depression up to meet the skin surface. A treatment plan designed with a combination of micro needling, chemical peels, and microdermabrasion may deliver dramatic results for scar restructuring.
Micro channeling with ProCell Therapies infuses human growth factors into the skin. These growth factors support cellular renewal and have strong regenerating properties to improve skin firmness, elasticity, texture, and brightening skin tone. Micro channeling with ProCell diminishes scarring, fine lines, and leaves the skin looking smooth, bright and healthy.

HOW THE PROCELL SYSTEM WORKS?
Procell's micro channeling system is a “lunch-time” treatment that transforms the look and feel of damaged skin to a smoother, and healthier looking skin. During the treatment, very small micro-needles penetrate the upper layers of your skin creating small micro-injuries. Theseinjuries stimulate a natural healing response, which leads to the creation of new collagen. Over the course of several treatments, this repetitive healing process can create a new layer of collagen that can improve the overall appearance of your skin.
THE 3 STAGE PROCESS
Micro Needles Create Micro Channels
Precision micro needles are tapped into the skin creating uniform micro channels. A single pass over the face using the ProCell system will create hundreds of thousands of micro channels.
Stimulation of a Healing Response
Each micro channel is surrounded by healthy tissue, which enhances the healing process. In response to each micro-injury, an inflammatory healing process begins which initiates the formation of new collagen.
Smoothing of Skin
Over time, the repeated healing process will build new collagen, creating healthier skin, improving the surface texture and the overall appearance of the skin
WHAT CAN PROCELL TREAT?
Micro channeling can be used anywhere on the face and body where skin imperfections are located. Treatments can smooth out imperfections and improve the surface texture of your skin. Your skin will appear cleaner and healthier after a series of treatments.
HOW TO PREPARE FOR YOUR PROCELL MICRO CHANNEL TREATMENT
It is important to discontinue the use of prescription vitamin A products and acids one week prior to your treatment and one week post treatment.
Even though the downtime is minimal we recommend you do not have an important event within 7 days of your treatment.
We recommend having this procedure performed every 2 to 4 weeks depending on the results you would like to achieve.
WHAT TO EXPECT DURING THE PROCELL TREATMENT
Most patients report warmth or minor skin pricks as the treatment is delivered. Many find the treatment relaxing and comfortable. Most patients can tolerate superficial treatments without any topical anesthetic.
The procedure is gentle, noninvasive and safe. Generally, there is no need for a topical anesthetic; however, one may be used on more sensitive areas.
PROCELL TREATMENT, POST-PROCEDURE
Most patients experience a mild redness following treatment. This varies widely based on the patient and skin type. Redness can last from 60-90 minutes. Apply makeup after 90 minutes. More aggressive treatments will extend recovery periods. You may apply makeup to the treated area one hour after treatment and return to normal activities.
