Address Skin Aging at the Root

Updated: Jan 11, 2021

Healthy skin is often viewed as a reflection of your overall health, so in order to best treat most skin issues we need to go deeper.

Pro-Cell MicroChanneling

ProCell microchanneling is how we deliver nutrients and growth factors below the skin surface to stimulate deeper healing. This simple in office procedure helps improve the appearance of aging skin, increases the vitality of skin and reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone, acne & acne scarring. It also improves the clinical health of your skin by stimulating a rejuvenation cascade that your body has built in, just waiting to be activated.

ProCell offers collagen stimulation by using a tiny array of micro-filaments to create thousands of stimulating microchannels in your skin. Nutrients and growth factors delivered below the skin surface helps to rejuvenate the appearance of skin with little to no recovery time, and produce both corrective and anti-aging results. This method can be used on the face and body to treat problem areas.

ProCell can be used to help improve:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles

  • Acne scars

  • Hyperpigmentation

  • Skin Laxity

  • Stretch Marks

  • Hair Loss

Microchanneling can be performed in the office or at home with your own stamper.

The home stamper device is designed to be used once a week for 12 weeks. It is a gentle device, going to a depth of 0.25 mm. This is a great option for individuals who have never had any professional skin treatments to the skin or perform their treatments from the comfort of their own home.

In office treatments start at 0.5 mm in depth and can go as deep at 2.0 mm. The depth of treatment is determined during your skin consultation and is determined by a number of factors.

There are some conditions which require pre-procedure conversations or treatment, these include:

  • Personal history of herpes/cold sores

  • Personal history of daily blood thinners

There are some conditions that may be contraindicated for microchanneling, these include:

  • Personal history of keloid scarring

  • Personal history of scleroderma

  • Personal history of compromised immune system

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

At Elevate we have created a unique in office microchanneling experience. First we draw your blood and spin it down to capture your own growth factors. Second we combine your growth factors with a compounded formula made specifically to treat your unique skin concerns. Next we microchannel this mixture onto your treatment area. Finally, we cover the area with a gentle mask to allow full penetration of these active ingredients.

Growth factors can be found in several areas in the body, one of which is platelets - a specific type of blood cell.
