Love Microneedling? You Need to Try Microchanneling
Skin rejuvenation doesn’t have to require expensive surgical procedures. There have been so many advancements surrounding skincare lately, including one of the newest: Microchannelling. Microchannelling puts your own skin to work to create a new layer of fresh, glowing skin and initiate the production of its own collagen. You don’t have to keep spending money on expensive collagen-infused skincare items! Microchanneling does the work for you. If you are interested in learning more about microchanneling, keep reading to learn more, how it is different from microneedling and where to get the best results for microchanneling in Westlake Village.
What is Microchanneling?
Microchanneling is an advanced form of microneedling that creates small micro channels in the upper layers of the skin creating small micro-injuries. This creates a natural healing response in the body leading to the formation of new collagen. The result from our microchanneling in Westlake Village clinic? Beautiful, glowing, rejuvenated skin.
Microchanneling can treat:
- Moderate anti-aging skin concerns
- Uneven texture
- Reduced elasticity
- Fine lines
- Large pores
- Stretch marks
Does Microchanneling Stimulate Cellular Activity?
Yes! Microchanneling works by stimulating cellular activity to form new collagen and give skin a new, refreshed glow. We’re not just using refreshed as a fun adjective here, either. Skin is really, actually refreshed with all the new cellular activity being produced.
Here’s how it works: At our microchanneling in Westlake Village clinic, a single Procell 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.
If you’re a fan of microneedling but want something less invasive, microchanneling is perfect for you. Due to the immediate promotion of the healing process during the procedure, patients can expect a smoother recovery time and less redness after the procedure.
Do Stem Cells Assist Healing?
Yes! The collagen formed during the healing process is at the heart of the procedure. Human growth-factor serums derived from bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells are known to promote scarless healing with minimal inflammation. Application of serums immediately after microchanneling treatment enhances delivery and collagen growth.
Think of your skin as a mattress: Over time, it flattens out and the springs shrink. Microchanneling puts new life in your skin, putting that bounce back into your skin and giving great results for those with acne scars, wrinkles, and much more.
What is the Process of Microchanneling?
The expert at our clinic who performs microchanneling in Westlake Village has broken down the process of microchanneling into three simple steps. They include:
- The creation of the microchannels: Precision micro-tips 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 the 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 the skin: Over time, the repeated healing process will build new collagen, creating healthier skin and improving the surface texture and overall appearance of the skin.
Microchanneling Treatment and Healing Time
When it comes to the nuts and bolts of the microchanneling in Westlake Village treatment specifics and healing times, we have nothing to hide! Each session will last about 90 minutes. After your first session, it is important to come in for touch-up maintenance every 3 weeks for full results. The more microchannels that are created and produce more new collagen, the better!
After the treatment, you can expect some mild redness for about a day. As mentioned, the downtime is extremely minimal as compared to microneedling. However, with microneedling, you only need one treatment! Depending on what you prefer, both methods will give you great results.
