PROCELL MICROCHANNELING FAQ'S
What is ProCell Microchanneling?
ProCell Microchanneling is a non-invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that creates invisible perforations in the outermost layer of dead skin. This creates a micro-injury that triggers the body to fill these microscopic perforations with new collagen and elastin. Human bone marrow derived serum is applied immediately after Procell Microchanneling to penetrate the skin and deliver high concentrations of growth factors that depending on the desired outcome, can improve the appearance of acne scarring, skin texture, hyperpigmentation, and reduce the appearance of fine wrinkles.
What's in ProCell's Delivery Serum?
ProCell’s Microchannel Delivery Serum contains human bone marrow-derived growth factors in a hyaluronic acid base. These elements are naturally-occurring in the human body. There are no human, animal, or plant cells, DNA, blood, or any other foreign substances used in ProCell's delivery serum. The product has been used safely and effectively for over a decade.
What skin conditions will this help with?
Procell Microchanneling can improve the appearance of acne scarring, skin texture, hyperpigmentation, stretch marks, and reduce the appearance of fine wrinkles.
When will I see results?
Though 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 is when most clients see consistent and noticeable improvement. Six more treatments may be recommended for scarring, laxity and wrinkles.
Does it hurt?
Depending on which depth of face tip is used, most clients are able to do the procedure without numbing cream and without any noticeable pain. There is no lingering discomfort, and down-time is usually about ninety minutes. Numbing cream is available if needed. Post-procedure, most people report a “tight” feeling in their skin.
Are there any contraindications for this treatment?
If you have any underlying condition that significantly impairs your immune system, it is a good idea to avoid microchanneling. Examples include but are not limited to active radiation or chemotherapy, uncontrolled diabetes, chronic inflammatory skin disease, keloid scarring, Accutane in the past 2 years, hemophilia or similar bleeding disorder, and pregnant or nursing. Those with stainless steel allergies should not do this treatment.
How much do I charge clients for each ProCell Microchanneling treatment?
The national average fee that you would charge your esthetic clients is between $250-$300 per treatment. Of course this is an approximate figure. Pricing is not set, you choose how much you want to charge based on your local average. We recommend performing a series of three to six treatments spaced approximately four weeks apart. Some of our practitioners offer clients a discount is a package or three or six treatments is purchased.
