Rejuvenates by ceating a controlled wound on the top layer of your skin, which triggers collagen and elastin production. Treats fine line and wrinkles, acne, scars, discoloration, uneven skin tone and texture, stretch marks, and hair loss. Enhance your treatment by adding HydraFacial, Dermaplaning, Chemical Exfoliation, and/ or Human Growth Factor Fusion. Minimal downtime. Makeup can be worn on day 2. Opting for post treatment mask and human growth factor fusion cut healing time significantly.
Microchanneling Stem Cell Therapy
Alternative to traditional microneedling. Rejuvenates by creating microscopic channels in the skin and introducing human growth factors. Human Stem Growth factors and cytokines applied to skin mimic the effect of having more stem cells, which triggers collagen and elastin production. Rejuvenates by creating a controlled wound on the top layer of your skin, which triggers collagen and elastin production. Treats fine line and wrinkles, acne, scars, discoloration, uneven skin tone and texture, stretch marks, and hair loss. Enhance your treatment by adding HydraFacial, Dermaplaning, and/orChemical Exfoliation. Skin is slightly pink when procedure is completed with a healthy glow. No downtime.

See FAQ at the bottom of this page.
Does Microneedling or Microchanneling hurt?
No. We have our numbing perfected. Most of our clients say that it feels like a massage and is relaxing. Microchanneling can be done with no numbing at all with very little discomfort, if any.
How long does the procedure take?
The procedure itself only takes about 15 minutes. You can expect for the entire appointment to take about an hour from start to finish with numbing and prepping.
What is the downtime?
There's really no real downtime. Makeup can be worn 24 hours after needling and 90 minutes after channeling. You can expect redness for the first few days. Day 4-5, your skin is typically dry and may have some like flaking or peeling (very minimal if any). DO NOT EXFOLIATE until after 7 days. In most cases, by day 6-7 the skin is back to normal with a glowing, bright appearance. These after effects are extremely minimal with microchanneling and mostly not present at all. The more that you microneedle, usually the less the redness. You can return to work or your normal daily activities immediately afterward, with the exception of working out, excessive heat, direct sun exposure, and chlorine.
How long before I should see results and does skincare affect these results?
Most clients see some degree of results rather quickly. Typically, it takes one month for the collagen to produce and continues for up to 4 months afterwards. This is why around treatment 3-4, results are usually very apparent. However, most of our clients see results much more rapidly. Clients who use our recommended skin care faithfully and/or add growth factor to their treatment typically get better, faster results. Diet and lifestyle also have an effect on your results. Regardless of all of these things, we have not have one single client not have some degree of changes in their skin whether they are on good skincare etc. or not. We just have seen a significant difference between those who do and do not. It's the same concept of going to the gym and stopping at McDonald's on the way home. If you want the best results, you should definitely invest in taking care of your skin at home both through diet and skincare.
I have a dermal roller at home? Is this the same?
NO. We do not recommend dermal rollers for 2 reasons. 1. Rolling will tear skin as the needle lifts. This will have a long term damaging effect on the skin. 2. It is impossible to sanitize needles enough to reuse..PERIOD.
Should I add dermaplaning, chemical exfoliation, or HydraFacial to my treatment?
This is totally up to you. Dermaplaning will exfoliate the skin before treatment allowing deeper penetration. Chemical exfoliation will cause the skin to exfoliate a little more during the next 7 days post treatment. HydaFacial will both exfoliate and clean the pores at the deepest level possible creating a super clean canvas to work on. HydraFacial will also infuse nutrients, antioxidants, and skin calming ingredients into the opened microchannels.
How many treatments will I need, and how often should I receive treatment?
It is our belief that it takes a series of treatments to create a true change in the skin. We recommend a series of 6-8 treatments (8 usually for deeper scarring) 4-6 weeks apart. Treatments can be as close as 2 weeks apart if desired. Even though the results are permanent, you are continuously aging and continuously getting atmospheric damage. Therefore, to keep results, maintenance is required. We recommend maintaining treatments on a minimum of every 3 months. We do believe that in order to maintain optimal results, clinical exfoliation should occur every 28 days. Between microneedling maintenance, we recommend receiving HydraFacial with dermaplaning and/or chemical exfoliation. Scarring correction is permanent unless another scar is created.
What are the risks of microneedling and microchanneling?
None. Unlike laser treatments, no heat is produced. There is no risk of hyper or hypo pigmentation or scar tissue due to heat.
Should I start microneedling at a younger age? Am I too old for microneedling?
You should absolutely start microneedling at a younger age. Our growth factor production plummets in our late 20's. Microneedling or microchanneling will help prevent aging by aiding in the production of collagen and elastin. No, you are not too old. We've seen results with a wide range of ages. Actually, we've never experienced no results with any clients that we've worked on. We've treated clients as young as 3 years old (scar treatment) up to the age of 78...results every single time.
What is HGF, and where does it come from?
HGF is Human Growth Factor Stem Cells that originated from a controlled group of healthy athletes in their early 20's at PENN State who donated bone marrow. The cytokines were separated into colonies that aid in collagen production and have been reproduced in a factory for years. HGF Fusion works by delivering stem cells into opened microchannels and aiding in collagen production. So, microneedling and microchanneling both work by creating a wound and the body healing itself; thus creating collagen. With HGF Fusion, we are giving you the growth factors. Theoretically, collagen will be produced by two means when adding HGF. We have seen a significant difference in both the healing process and the results in those who add HGF Fusion to their treatments. HGF fusion is included in our microchanneling. This does NOT mean you will not get results without adding HGF fusion. You will. Adding this to your treatment enhances it.
What is the difference between Microneedling, Microchanneling, BBGlow, and HydaFacial?
Micronedling creates a controlled wound forcing the body to heal itself and create collagen and elastin. Microchaneling does the same thing, but at a much lesser depth. HGF Fusion is included in our microchanneling. It is impossible for you to know what's best for you without consulting with us. We always recommend scheduling needling. Should we decided that channeling is best for you, we will change your service at the time of your appointment. BBGlow is comparable to the depth of microchanneling and deposits a tinted bb cream. BBGlow is only recommended after you have completed your series of treatments. HydraFacial is a totally different animal. HydraFacial has a patented votex technology that simuataneously extracts all the gunk out of your pores while infusing antioxidants, humucatants, and skin nuturients. HydraFacial can be added to both microneedling and microchanneling if desired.
How long can after I get Botox, fillers, or laser can I microneedle or microchannel?
You have to wait 14 days after receiving injections. You can get injections any time after microchanneling or microneedling. We recommend waiting 6 weeks after receiving laser before you needle or channel.
What does microneedling and microchanneling help?
Both treatments can improve fine lines and wrinkes, scarring, discoloration, stretch marks, rosacea, acne, puffy under eyes, and sagging skin.
How long before I con start back with normal skin care after needling or channeling?
You can return to normal skincare 2-3 days after treatment. No exfoliation for 7 days post treatment. During the first 2 days, use a gentle cleanser and spf. Epidermal Repair by Skinceuticals is recommended 2 times per day for 7 days after treatment to help with healthy barrier function repair and moisture.
What can I do to minimize downtime?
You will experience redness during the first 2 days. The post treatment mask is highly recommended for the first two days after treatment. This will alleviate the heat sensation in the skin immediately and aid in quicker healing and less reddness. HGF Fusion helps tremendously in decreasing downtime. HydraFacial also aids in faster healing.
Are their any medications I should avoid?
Avoid all blood thinning medication such as aspirin, ibuprofen, and St. John's wort at least 7 days before treatment. No prescription blood thinning medication or Accutane within 6 months of treatment. Avoid any anti-inflammatory medications, as we want inflammation to happen in the skin to trigger healing and collagen production. No retinols or drying topical medication (including those with acids) within 7 days of treatment.
