You age, visibly and invisibly, every day. Sun damage, internal inflammation, chemicals, and even gravity all work against the youthful vitality of your skin. As we get older, fewer regenerative stem cells survive to repair this constant damage.
A single Procell treatment creates hundreds of thousands of microchannels. In response to each micro-injury, an inflammatory healing process begins which initiates the formation of new collagen. Over time, the repeated healing process improves the surface texture and the overall appearance of the skin.
Human growth-factor serums derived from bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells are known to promote scarless healing with minimal inflammation. Application of serums immediately after microchannelling treatment enhances delivery and collagen growth. Microchannelling without the stem cell serum is like exercising without dieting, results with microchannelling alone will be good only & great with the serum. Clinical studies show with the stem cell serum the results are 4 times more effective. The Stem Cells serum floods the microchannels to aid in wound healing as well as stimulation and synthesis of fibroblasts (wound healing & structural framework of cells/tissue).
Microchannelling is a minimally invasive resurfacing treatment. There is no heat or thermal damage and therefore any downtime is short lived and scarless wound healing. The recovery depends on the individual's skin sensitively, skin thickness, depth of needles used and how many passes are applied. There can be very mild to moderate pinpoint bleeding during the treatment or none at all. Immediately after the skin appears to have mild-moderate flush, it's common to feel like a mild sunburn and within a few hours the skin may become more pink/red.
Generally, treatments are scheduled 2 - 4 weeks apart, depending on depth of treatment. There is no limit to the number of treatments that one can receive as long as adequate time passes in between treatments.
Individuals who should not have microchannelling include: women who are pregnant, and people who have keloids, a history of facial eczema, psoriasis, active skin infections, open wounds/cuts, have taken Accutane in the past 6 months, or are immunocompromised (Lupus, HIV,etc).
