Procell Microchanneling Skin Care Treatment
WHAT IS THE PROCELL MICROCHANNELING TREATMENT?
Procell Therapy is the most effective and non-invasive skin rejuvenating procedure! It helps improve the appearance of fine lines, hyperpigmentation, acne scarring and other skin issues and keep skin looking and feeling younger. This unique therapy was developed in the United States by a Licensed Aesthetician and a Board Certified Dermatologist (visit Procell website for more information).
Microchanneling stimulates your body’s natural ability to generate new healthy skin rather than utilizing destructive and inflammatory techniques like many treatments in the aesthetic industry.
This results in a more enjoyable treatment, virtually non-existent downtime, and happier skin. Microchanneling can also improve the overall health of your skin by stimulating the rejuvenation cascade for new collagen production.
HOW DOES PROCELL MICROCHANNELING WORKS?
A single Procell therapy treatment creates hundreds of thousands of microchannels. In response to each micro-injury, an inflammatory healing process begins which initiates the formation of new collagen. Over time, the repeated healing process improves the surface texture and the overall appearance of the skin.
We start life with a large number of bone marrow stem cells.

But as we age, we lose most of them.

By age 50, only 2% remain.
WHY DOES THE SKIN AGE?
You age, visibly and invisibly, every day. Sun damage, internal inflammation, chemicals, and even gravity all work against the youthful vitality of your skin. As we get older, our ability to repair this constant damage diminishes dramatically.
Since fewer regenerative stem cells survive to carry on the work, slower, less robust healing and greater levels of inflammation are inevitable, resulting in skin blemishes that become more and more pronounced as you age.
AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR PROCELL MICROCHANNELING TREATMENT?

HOW LONG THE PROCELL THERAPY LASTS, NEED MORE TREATMENT?
Procell therapy can last anywhere from 2 to 10 years, depending on clients age and lifestyle. For light anti-aging treatments, 1 to 2 treatments may be sufficient, for deeper wrinkles & scarring, you may require 4 to 6 treatments to achieve the desired results. An interval of 3 to 4 weeks between treatments is typically recommended and you can see the results 2-3 weeks after your treatment.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MICROCHANNELING AND MICRONEEDLING?
Procell Microchanneling therapy is the next generation of Microneedling. The main difference between the two therapies is the type of device used to perform the treatment as well as the technique that is used. Microneedling therapy involves using a handheld “roller” covered in tiny needles that is dragged over the skin which can actually tear the skin. Procell Microchanneling therapy, on the other hand, uses a “stamping” technique, which creates micro vertical channels into the skin for better and deeper product penetration & less trauma to the skin.
