Microchanneling and microneedling are two popular treatments that offer various benefits for skin rejuvenation. However, these procedures differ primarily in the type of device employed and the technique utilized. Here’s what you need to know.
Microchanneling vs. Traditional Microneedling
When it comes to microchanneling, a handheld device with miniscule wire-based filaments is utilized to create tiny, virtually invisible channels (“microchannels”) in the skin. These channels are designed to deliver beneficial ingredients, such as serums or growth factors, directly into the deeper layers of the skin. This process also stimulates collagen production, resulting in skin that is firmer, smoother, and more youthful in appearance.
On the other hand, traditional microneedling employs a different device known as a dermaroller or a dermapen. This device features multiple tiny needles that create micro-injuries in the skin. These controlled injuries trigger the body’s natural healing response, stimulating collagen and elastin production. As a result, you may notice improved skin texture and tone. However, this particular technique has the potential to cause longer downtime (at least 24 hours to a couple of days).
Why Choose Microchanneling Over Traditional Microneedling?
Microchanneling uses an innovative linear stamping technique, leading to precise and uniform treatment that reduces tissue damage. After treatment, there is notably less inflammation than traditional microneedling, as well as a significant reduction in discomfort experienced by patients. The typical downtime following a microchanneling treatment is approximately only 60 to 90 minutes.
The Procell™ Microchanneling System
Although microneedling and microchanneling both stimulate the skin’s innate healing processes, the Procell™ microchanneling system, in particular, uses a proprietary biotechnology serum that sets this therapy apart from others.
With Procell, the serum absorbs into the skin through the microchannels and binds to your cells. These have an interactive effect on your DNA, instructing your skin cells to duplicate into more youthful and robust copies of themselves. The result is full skin rejuvenation and restoration of damaged skin cells from the inside out.
