What is Microchanneling?
Microchanneling is also known as an advanced version of Microneedling, Dry Needling & Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT).
It is a minimally-invasive, non-surgical and non-ablative procedure for facial and body rejuvenation that involves the use of a microneedling device to create controlled injury to the skin. This promotes a healing response in your skin, helping to minimize signs of aging, scars, stretch marks and a number of other skin issues.
At Nue Laser Spa we use the Procell Therapy microchanneling device, heath canada approved.
Procell produces maximum stimulation, with minimal inflammation. This balanced approach to skin rejuvenation reduces recovery time to nearly 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.
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.
Our delivery serum used during treatment is filled with cytokines and growth factor to help boost results & recovery time. We also send you home with an aftercare product to keep the results coming in between your treagtments
What areas can be treated?
All areas of the body can be treated. Most common for anti-aging are the face, neck and chest. We can also treat the abdomen and thighs for stretch marks.
Microchanneling is also effective for hair regrowth.
How many treatments are recommended?
The number of recommended treatments greatly depend on what we are treating. For light anti-aging treatments, 1-2 treatments may be sufficient. For deeper wrinkles and acne scarring, 4-6 treatments may be required to achieve desired results. There is no limit to the number of treatments that you receive.
What can be treated?
Fine lines & wrinkles
Uneven skin tone & texture
Does Microchanneling hurt?
There is some discomfort during the treatment. There is no lingering discomfort, and we apply a numbing cream to make it more comfortable
How long do the results last?
Results of Microchanneling can last between 2-10 years, depending on your lifestyle and age. For anti-aging we do recommend yearly treatments to maintain maximum results.
Is there any downtime?
You can apply make-up, sunblock and other topical products after about 90 minutes. Although we do recommend waiting 24 hours. Immediately following the treatment you may have anything from minor redness, to a deep red flush, which clears up in 4 to 72 hours, depending on how aggressive the treatment is.
How long before I can expect to see results?
You will typically notice an improvement in the quality and appearance of your skin within the first 24 hours. After 2-3 treatments a thicker more robust, collagen filled cellular matrix will produce more consistent and noticeable improvement. 6 or more treatments may be recommended for scarring, laxity and wrinkles.
For hair regrowth some reactivation typically appears within the first two weeks, with noticeable improvement after about 5 weeks.
Are there any contraindications?
We cannot preform Microchanneling if you suffer from any condition that seriously impairs your immune system, have uncontrolled diabetes,, hemophilia or similar bleeding disorder. Are currently receiving radiation or chemotherapy, pregnant or nursing, have an allergy to stainless steel, chronic inflammatory skin disease, or used Accutane in the past 2 years
