How Can I Prepare for my Procell Micro Channeling Therapy Treatment?

Procell therapies bring together professional micro channeling technology and human stem cell science to dramatically improve the appearance of your skin.

Procell Micro-channeling (the next generation of micro-needling) & Stem Cell Therapy was developed in America, by a Licensed Aesthetician and a Board-Certified Dermatologist.

A Procell micro-channeling treatment may dramatically improve the appearance of your aging skin, increase the vitality of your skin, and reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone, acne & acne scarring. It additionally may improve the clinical health of your skin by stimulating a rejuvenation cascade effect that your body has built-in, just waiting to be activated!

These treatments create invisible micro-perforations and stimulate cells called keratinocytes that activate the production of new collagen by stimulation, rather than damage.

While chemical peels, IPL & laser treatments certainly have their place in aesthetic skin care, they all create improvements by injuring the skin to cause a healing response and rejuvenation.

Procell micro-channeling is unique in that it stimulates improvement by stimulating the release of epidermal growth factors with virtually no damage to the skin itself.

The procedure is a bit uncomfortable, much like the mild discomfort of microdermabrasion. Before the treatment is done, a topical anesthetic may be used to help reduce any discomfort. This usually will be called into your pharmacy for you to pick up and apply before coming into the office, or you can also arrive one hour before your treatment time and it will be applied there.

Other than using a topical anesthetic, your Boston or Wellesley cosmetic surgeon may have you discontinue retinol (2% or higher) or tretinoin at least 3 days before treatment (if applicable). After your first treatment, you can expect mild redness and swelling, and a tight, warm sensation for between 4 & 24 hours.

Procell micro-channeling is a safe and effective procedure, but as with any treatment, always consult with your Wellesley cosmetic surgeon, familiar with the procedure, before moving forward. In that way, you can be sure to have all your questions answered and feel comfortable and positive about proceeding.

How Does Procell Micro-Channeling Actually Work?

The procedure of micro-channeling creates tiny perforations in the skin, initiating a truly natural healing response that is designed to trigger the collagen-producing cells in your body to go into overdrive and creates permanent new healthy skin. These tiny perforations cause an overall healing effect that produces new collagen and elastin which results in firmer, healthier skin.

Procell micro channeling generally uses one, or more, of three solutions, they are:

  • Those containing Somatic Cytokines.
  • Hyaluronic acid.
  • Other solutions that help to reduce any inflammatory response. These are physiologic naturally occurring ingredients, normally found in the skin.
  • And possibly others, which your doctor will discuss.

With as little as two treatments, micro-channeling has been shown to improve skin laxity, the diminished appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, acne scars, age spots/sunspots, and stretch marks.

You’ll usually experience an immediate improvement in skin tone, skin texture, laxity, fine lines, and wrinkles. Long-term improvement that can last can be achieved after you complete a series of treatments that may be recommended by your cosmetic surgeon.

How Do I Know If I Am a Candidate for Procell Micro-Channeling?

In most cases, almost anyone can have this procedure done, but of course, you and your Boston cosmetic surgeon will be the ones making this final decision.

You may be an ideal candidate for Procell micro-channeling if you have:

  • Fine lines or wrinkles in your skin.
  • Uneven skin texture.
  • Moderate skin laxity.
  • Any stretch marks.
  • Atrophic (depressed) acne scars.
  • Moderate to severe sun damage.
  • Any traumatic scars.

Again, following your cosmetic surgeon’s plan of treatment, these micro-channeling treatments could be done every three to four weeks. The frequency of treatment and depending on exactly what skin concerns are being treated and the condition of your skin, the duration, and frequency of treatment will vary. For example, lighter anti-aging treatments may only need one or two of these procedures.

It’s now well accepted that medical micro-channeling can help to reduce the appearance of many common unwanted skin conditions, such as premature signs of aging. Even younger patients may feel that their skin is beginning to lose its vibrancy and youthful appearance.

This procedure is usually performed by your professional cosmetic surgeon who has in-depth knowledge of Procell therapies. The treatment session usually takes about 30-45 minutes. It is widely believed today that Procell Therapies provides the most effective micro-channeling treatment on the market.

Is Procell Micro-Channeling Generally Safe?

Procell micro-channeling treatments are minimally invasive and are almost always safe for all ages and skin types. Whether you are fair-skinned or have a dark complexion, and even if you experience chronic breakouts. Properly conducted micro-channeling treatments will usually not result in hyperpigmentation, keloid scars, or other lasting negative side effects.

When done properly by your professional Wellesley cosmetic surgeon, Procell micro-channeling may last anywhere from 2 to 10 years, depending on your age and lifestyle.

This treatment can enhance your appearance, and provide you with a new, vital look that will improve your self-image and confidence. Always consult the entire procedure with your Wellesley cosmetic surgeon and make sure you ask all the questions and concerns you may have. Your surgeon, and his team, will make sure you have all the answers you need and feel comfortable and positive about proceeding with your Procell therapy.
