The Procell Process

The Procell Process

Procell Microchanneling has taken the United States and Australia by storm. In fact, the treatment is used in over 10,000 clinics in the US alone! Improving upon microneedling, this treatment is the next generation of minimally evasive skin treatments that help turn the clock back on wrinkles, scarring and other skin conditions.

Founded by Dr. Mitchell Schwartz, the treatment utilises advanced insights from the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods (ARTG) and New Zealand's WAND database. The precision of the Procell device minimises skin injury, making it suitable for diverse skin conditions, including acne and pockmarks and all Fitzpatrick skin types.

In this blog, we’ll review all the benefits of Procell Microchanneling and explain how it works.

Procell Microchanneling uncovered.

Like microneedling, Procell Microchanneling uses micro-needles to create tiny impact points along the skin. This sounds counterintuitive, but in actual fact, by creating ‘micro-injuries’, Procell Microchanneling encourages the skin to heal itself.

Our bodies naturally heal themselves on their own, although ageing, scarring, and other skin conditions reduce this ability. This leads to fine lines and scar marks on the epidermis, the top layer of skin. Larger injuries are also harder to heal in the exact same way, which is what leads to disfiguring or remaining scar tissue.

‘Micro-injuries’ are much easier for the skin tissue to handle, prompting red blood cells to help create collagen and form connective tissues. Where Procell Microchanneling improves upon microneedling is in the delivery.

Smaller needles that are angled to deliver maximum effect. Using a natural growth serum which ‘bio-actively’ signals molecules to amply cell communication and function, Procell Microchanneling is better able to deliver skin rejuvenation and strength. 

Benefits of Procell Microchanneling.

The following are all benefits of Procell Microchanneling over other skin rejuvenation techniques, including microneedling:

  • Enhanced Healing and Aftercare: Procell Microchanneling unlocks natural skin repair mechanisms, promoting tighter, smoother skin with a radiant, youthful appearance. Aftercare serums stimulate continuous growth factor production, maximising results even between treatments, with significantly less inflammation post-procedure.
  • Less Invasive, Powerful Results: Procell Microchanneling offers excellent results with needle depths as low as 0.25mm. This less invasive treatment stimulates collagen and cell renewal, creating over two million microchannels in one full face and neck treatment.
  • Wide Range of Applications: Microchanneling is effective for various skin conditions, including fine lines, wrinkles, rosacea, acne scarring, stretch marks, hyperpigmentation, sunspots, melasma, and laxity. It is also suitable for all skin types and has the added benefit of being a hair regrowth treatment.
  • Downtime and Immediate Reactions: Downtime is minimal, with redness disappearing within a few hours for 0.25mm and 0.5mm needles. Pinpoint scabbing may take a few days for longer lengths. Immediate reactions range from little to no reaction to a deep red flush, with more extreme reactions not necessarily corresponding to more extreme results.
  • Combination with Other Treatments: Procell Microchanneling can be combined with other treatments for more aggressive results. Light microdermabrasion or chemical peels can be performed before microchanneling, but topical solutions post-microchanneling are not recommended. Light therapy treatments are typically the only post-microchanneling recommendation.
  • Correct Any Area of the Body: Procell Microchanneling can be applied to any area of the body, including the face, neck, décolletage, and other areas of the body with scar tissue or other complications.
  • Promote Hair Growth: Another benefit of Procell Microchanneling is its ability to stimulate hair follicles, resulting in some reversal of hair loss. Coupled with a red light treatment, which exposes the skin to useful near-infrared light, Procell Microchanneling can be used to stimulate scalp growth.

Other things to note.

If you’re seriously considering Procell Microchanneling, there are a few things to note first.

  • Optimal Needle Length: Starting with a 0.25mm tip depth is recommended, with the option to graduate to 0.5mm for more substantial results. 
  • Treatment Frequency and Duration: A 4-week interval between treatments is recommended, irrespective of needle depth and treatment area. The number of treatments varies based on the skin concern, ranging from 2-3 for light anti-ageing to 5 or more for deeper wrinkles and acne scarring. Hair regrowth treatments require a minimum of 6 sessions.
  • Make-Up Products: Directly after your treatment, it’s best to avoid make-up and foundation for at least 24 hours. This is because your skin’s pores are opened during the process, making the skin slightly sensitive. Make-up may lead to some irritation and clog the pores if immediately applied to the skin.
