ProCell Microchanelling is a safe, effective, and highly affordable skin rejuvenation treatment that has been proven to tighten skin, minimize lines and wrinkles, address sun damage, improve the appearance of acne scars, stretch marks, brighten dull skin pallor and yield an over all fresher, brighter appearance.
It can be used anywhere on the body. Best results occur in 3 to 5 treatments, with ongoing maintenance. Treatments are comfortable, due to the use of anesthetic, and can be performed in 30 to 40 minutes. Downtime is minimal, with some redness similar to a sunburn for about a day or two. The micro-channels in the skin close quickly, minimizing the risk of any kind of infection and there is no damage to the epidermis. ProCell can even be done over rosacea and, yes, it can address some types of alopecia (hair loss/baldness)!! In the time the skin has been opened with tiny pinpoint punctures created, not by needles, but by wire filaments, a highly specialized human stem cell serum is introduced. In this way, the skin's own repair response stimulates the generation of collagen and elastin proteins, along with growth factors---and the introduction of the purified growth factors derived from the bone marrow of healthy athletes supports and promotes healthy cellular renewal and has potent regenerating properties to improve skin firmness, elasticity, and tone.
So ProCell works in 2 ways---from the inside out and the outside in. A power packed treatment. The science behind micro needling/micro channelling is very simple and definitely worth a Google search. The treatment involves the creation of a controlled dermal wound using specialized single use cartridges. There is no dragging across the skin as with micro needling--minimizing the potential for damage to the skin. The process involves a stamping of the filaments gently into the skin, and the introduction of the serum. The body then sets to repairing the area, and it is aided by the serum. Improved results continue long past the time the skin is healed. Results are considered permanent. However, the aging process does continue, so routine maintenance is always recommended.
More ablative treatments do carry additional risks, downtime is more significant, and they cannot be used on all skin types, as micro channelling can. However, lasers to have a place for specific concerns such as broken blood vessels. ProCell can be used to help sustain the improvements of laser treatments or they can be used in combination.
Dermal rollers work in a similar way and can be purchased for home use. The downside to them is that they are limited in what they can improve, cannot be used easily in small areas, and can be more aggressive to the skin, causing damage. Dermal rollers can introduce bacteria as the needles are not single use. In addition, consumer purchased devices such as dermal roller are limited in the depth they can penetrate to promote noticeable improvement. In addition, the ProCell serums are only available to ProCell technicians.
My ProCell treatments can cover multiple concern areas at once. When you purchase a treatment, you are purchasing a single use cartridge and serum bottle, so there is little point in not using the entire bottle, which does go a long way. Furthermore, even if the serum runs out, I can continue to treat an area and use pure and natural hyuralonic acid. In other words, I want you to get the most out of each treatment that you can. A single treament is $230. A package of 3 is $650, and the best value, as well as best results, can be purchased in a package of 5 treatments for $1,000. NO HST.
