A microchanneling facial is the next generation of microneedling that delivers results with virtually no downtime.
Microchanneling is a less aggressive approach than medical microneedling approach for treating fine lines, age spots, rosacea, hyperpigmentation, and superficial scars. Tiny needles create tiny micro injuries that stimulate production of collagen and elastin. The uniform microchannels are surrounded by healthy tissue, which helps accelerate the the healing process. When nutrients or growth factors and cytokines are added, healing is expedited, with additional benefits.
How Microchanneling Facials Work
After cleansing, a customized solution based on your concerns is applied with the microchannel device. The microchanneling facial for skin rejuvenation is a three-stage process:
Tiny needles are tapped into the skin creating uniform micro-channels. A single pass over the face will create hundreds of thousands of micro-channels. These channels absorb the treatment solution.
Initial Healing Response
Ingredients start to work immediately nourishing skin and simulating the body’s natural healing response. Each micro-channel created is surrounded by healthy tissue, which helps accelerate the healing process.
Over four to six weeks, new collagen and elastin are created, improving skin health, improving skin surface texture, and improving the overall appearance of the skin.
