Procell Microchanneling FAQ

WHAT IS IN THE PROCELL MD SERUM?


Procell's MD Microchannel Delivery Serum contains growth factors, & anti-aging, pro-healing and anti-inflammatory ingredients such as TGF-ß3 and IL-1. MD Microchannel Delivery Serum provides faster results with shorter recovery times than the Pro serum.
Ingredients include deionized water, stem cytokines (proprietary mixture of human bone marrow stem cell-derived growth factors and cryokines), hyaluronic acid, dehydroacetic acid and benzyl alcohol. The MD serum contains human bone marrow-derived growth factors in a hyaluronic acid suspension. Both elements occur naturally in the human body. There are no human, animal, or plant cells, DNA, blood, or any other foreign substances. The product is FDA approved & has been used safely & effectively for over a decade. The main powerhouse in Procell serum is Stem Cytokines, which supports cellular renewal. When applied to the skin, the skin mimics the effect of having more stem cells. We lose most of these stem cells as we age. By 40 only a few percent remain compared to our youth and the remaining ones are less powerful. The serum has potent regenerating properties to improve skin firmness, elasticity & tone.




DO I HAVE TO USE THE PROCELL MD AFTERCARE SERUMS?


Microchanneling stimulates the body to release peptides, cytokines and growth factors that induce collagen production. As you get older, the stem cells that produce these vital proteins lose efficacy and decline in population, so microchanneling alone becomes less and less effective. Because of premature aging, the Microchannel Delivery Serum and the post care Cellular Renewal Serum and Healing Accelerator Serum become more vital to improvement. Use of the ProCell aftercare products ensure the skin continuously receives potent, robust, pristine peptides, cytokines and growth factors even in between treatments. Think of diet and exercise – microchanneling without serums is like exercising without dieting. Results can be good with microchanneling only, but are significantly amplified with serums.




HOW LONG BEFORE I CAN EXPECT TO SEE RESULTS?


Though neocollagenesis (the production of new collagen) can take several weeks, it is not abnormal to 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. And 6 or more treatments may be recommended for scarring, laxity and wrinkles.
For hair regrowth it can take up to a month after weekly treatment.




MY SKIN IS IRRITATED, CAN I USE MOISTURISER?


It is normal for treatments to result in some skin irritation, especially for clients with more sensitive skin. Always wait a minimum of 90 minutes before putting anything else on the skin. During this time it is normal for the skin to remain pink or light red. After the 90 minutes you can apply additional moisturizer or other products. Keep in mind however, that as your skin may be more sensitive than usual for several days after the treatment, especially strong topicals should be avoided until the skin returns to normal.




IS MICROCHANNELING THE SAME AS MICRONEEDLING?


Microchanneling‘s procedure is similar to the microneedling, but the treatment also uses high-grade active skin-care ingredients like skin lighteners, water, hyaluronic acid, peptides, skin softener, and moisturizers. These ingredients are directly infused into the skin during microneedling treatments. There is a key difference. Microchanneling is like the next generation of microneedling. Instead of pulling the device across the skin, the needles are precisely placed to the skin using a pattern of the stamp – which won’t cause tearing or any additional trauma to the skin.
Procell microchanneling tips are 100% reliable, because each tip's has a fixed depth. Microneedling devices with adjustable depths are rarely accurate. (Different conditions need difference depths of treatment.) Recovery time of microchanneling treatment is accelerated & results are amazing!




HOW DO THE STEMCELLS WORK?


Procell creates a biological interaction between damaged cells and healing cytokines. Our bone marrow contain mesenchymal stem cells. These contain DNA hardware to work towards wound healing, fighting disease and rejuvenating skin. The cells excrete proteins called cytokines, which are like little packages of information.
When the microchannelling creates a small injury in the skin it activates the body's injury response and sends stem stem cells to the area (or, in this case, stem cells are applied on the treatment area) to heal. Cell receptors in the injured area connect with the healthy cytokine into the damaged cells.




DOES MICROCHANNELING HURT?


Most clients report mild to moderate discomfort. We numb the treatment area before the procedure. You will feel a pin prick sensation, especially over the bony areas as well as areas with more nerve endings (forehead, cheekbones, jawline, lip) Some clients report the treated skin feels warm & tight after treatment. After the treatment, skin turns red, fades within the first hour or so, and resolves within 24 hours.




HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?


Depending on area treated, a session could take 1 (face) - 2 (body) hours.
This includes cleansing the skin, numbing time, the procedure, stem cells, & a post treatment hydrating mask.




HOW OFTEN CAN I GET PROCELL MICROCHANNELING?


This depends on the depth of the needle length used in your specific treatment. We recommened: 4 weeks apart for face & body 1 week apart for scalp
