What is ProCell Microchanneling?
ProCell Microchanneling is the most effective and non-invasive skin rejuvenating procedure which helps improve the appearance of fine lines, hyperpigmentation, and acne scarring, among other skin issues and keep skin looking and feeling younger. This unique therapy was developed in America by a Licensed Aesthetician as well as a Board Certified Dermatologist.

The procedure makes uniform holes in the outermost layer of your skin, the same size & the same depth, without damaging or scratching your skin. These tiny holes, also called as channels, are the perfect way to get healing products into your skin, such as the ProCell serum which has stem cell technology. This treatment is clinically proven to increase collagen & elastin production, which in turn increases the thickness of the skin while improving the appearance of wrinkles, uneven skin tone & texture, fine lines, acne scars/surgical scars, stretch marks and more.

How much does procell microchanneling cost?
The cost of your micro-channeling treatments will depend on what is being treated and the condition of your skin. Average price per session is $400 for face, neck, and chin. Hair treatment is $350. Additional payment required for additional serum vials. Other treatment cost is based on consultation.

Is the ProCell Micro-Channeling treatment safe?
ProCell Microchanneling therapies are absolutely safe and side effects are uncommon when being performed by knowledgeable and trained skincare professionals.

What is the difference between Microchanneling and Microneedling?
ProCell Micro-channeling therapy is the next generation of Microneedling.

The main difference between the two therapies is the type of device used to perform the treatment as well as the technique that is used.

Microneedling therapy involves using a handheld “roller” covered in tiny needles that is dragged over the skin which can cause micro tearing of the skin.

ProCell Microchanneling therapy, on the other hand, uses a “stamping” technique, which creates micro vertical channels into the skin for better and deeper product penetration & less trauma to the skin.

Understanding the Skin Cycle
A skin cycle is the process where a new skin cell is formed at the deepest layer of the epidermis and works it’s way up to the surface of the skin. At this point the skin cell has matured and ultimately flakes off.

A skin cycle can vary with each individual and is affected by such factors as age, hormones, skin condition (health) and stress.

On average, a skin cycle is 5-6 weeks. At the age of 19-21, the process can take 14-21 days, compared to a middle-aged adult where it is estimated to be 28 days.

As we grow older, this skin cycle slows to about 45-60 days in our 40’s and 50’s. It can further slow to about 60-90 days in our 50’s and 60’s.

Why is this important?
As we age our skin cycle slows down and dead cells accumulate on the surface of skin causing sagging and fine lines and wrinkles.

Bacteria can become trapped causing blemishes and breakouts. Skin discoloration and irregularities within the cells can become trapped causing spots.

Therefore, it is important to choose skin care products that can accelerate your cellular turnover and keep fresh new skin cells flourishing to the surface.

When starting a new skin care regime, it is advised to wait approximately 1-3 skin cycles so 6 – 18 weeks to see improved results.

This gives the skin care chance to work on making changes to the cell’s health, condition, vitality, and strength.

When the outer surface of skin is made of newer skin cells, skin feels softer, and looks more vibrant.

By maintaining an average 28-day or faster replacement cycle through healthy lifestyle choices and a regular skin care routine that addresses the basics of skin, your skin will appear smoother and more youthful.

Patience is Key
Be patient with new skin care and give it time to do it’s job. This is designed to work on the deeper layers of the skin so immediate results are not always seen.

Over the counter skin care works on the surface of your skin, so it may immediately feel soft but long term benefits will not be comparable.

Understanding the Hair Growth Cycle
Everyone experiences hair loss on some level. After all, the average person sheds 50-100 hairs a day as part of the natural hair growth cycle. Noticeable hair loss, however, occurs when this cycle is disrupted. These interruptions can happen for a variety of reasons—read on to learn more about how different causes and conditions can play a roll in hair loss.

Some causes for hairloss are indentified below.

While the vast majority of hair loss is caused by genetics, there are a number of other factors that could be at play. Here are a few common culprits that cause or exacerbate hair loss.

A deficiency in certain vitamins and/or minerals could be contributing factors of hair loss. Some of the nutrients that are important for your hair include B vitamins (particularly Biotin), vitamin D, iron, zinc, protein, and essential fatty acids.

Fluctuating hormone levels in women may cause or contribute to hair thinning or loss. These changes can often occur postpartum or be attributed to perimenopause, menopause, and polycystic ovarian syndrome.

Oftentimes, side effects from prescription drugs or medical treatments can include hair loss. These treatments can include:

Acne medications
Antibiotics
Antidepressants
Bariatric surgery
Beta-blockers for high blood pressure
Blood thinners
Chemotherapy and radiation to treat cancer
Cholesterol-lowering medications
Epilepsy medications
Hormone replacement therapy
Immune-suppressing drugs
Lithium
NSAIDs
Oral contraceptives
Steroids
Thyroid medications
Weight loss drug

While everyday stress won't impact your hair, three types of hair loss are associated with high stress levels, including:

Telogen Effluvium: This condition occurs when there’s a sudden shock to the system like that experienced with childbirth, surgery, rapid weight loss or any major, traumatic event such as a death in the family, divorce or an accident.

Trichotillomania: The stress-induced impulse control disorder, trichotillomania, is a hair loss condition that drives people to pull out their own hair.

Alopecia Areata: This autoimmune skin disease mistakenly attacks the hair follicles, causing hair loss on the scalp, face, and sometimes other areas of the body.

Frequent use of harsh styling practices can cause breakage and make hair fall out. Some of the most damaging styling practices include: tight hair styles such as ponytails, braids or buns worn for extended periods of time; chemical treatments such as coloring, perms and relaxers; and incorrect use or overuse of hot styling tools.

Note the exact cause of ones hairloss can be determined by a medical doctor specializing in hairloss.

Microchanneling for hair loss
Use of Procell with Livra Hair Regrowth Serum on the scalp is proven to effectively stop hair loss and regrow hair. This breakthrough approach utilizes natural human growth factors that are found in healthy, young hair follicles to create thicker, fuller-looking hair without the use of drugs.

Procell effectively stops hair loss at the source. Microchanneling of the scalp increases absorption of topical serums into the skin by over 300%. Livra Hair Serum is applied during and immediately after treatment to penetrate deep into the follicle to deliver high concentrations of growth factors. The growth factors selected for the Hair Serum are the same as those that are naturally present in healthy young hair follicles.

The growth factors in Livra Hair Regrowth Serum nourish the stem cells lining the hair follicles that are crucial for production of hair. Deep penetration of these growth factors improves the overall condition of the scalp, rejuvenates damaged hair follicles for an effective, natural approach to halting and reversing hair loss.

PROCELL THERAPIES’ HAIR REGROWTH SERUM

How it Works
As we age increased levels of Dihydrotestoterone (DHT) can effectively put the dermal papilla/hair follicles into a telogen, “sleeping” phase. If hair remains in a telogen phase long enough the follicle cannot be reactivated and balding occurs. Procell Therapies Hair Regrowth Serum (HRS) disrupts the occupation of receptors on the dermal papilla prone to DHT contamination, re-awakening dormant follicles to grow hair once again. Treatment works best on younger patients who have just begun balding, but impressive results have been seen even in older patients.

Additionally, thinning hair may be caused by a scalp damaged by a dry climate, nutrition, stress, certain drugs, chlorine, and/or environmental exposure. Over many years, the skin of the scalp produces less growth factors and becomes less efficient at repairing damage. Because of this, the condition of the scalp can eventually deteriorate to the point where it hardens (fibrosis) or hair follicles become miniaturized. In the case of fibrosis, hair is unable to grow through the hardened scalp. Miniaturization renders the hair follicles unable to perform their normal growth cycle. Both conditions can lead to a cessation of hair production and the death of hair follicles.

Stem cells lining the hair follicles are crucial for production of hair, and the GF-technology ingredients in this concentrated serum are selected to provide support to these stem cells, so hair can re-grow. HRS improves the overall condition of the scalp, rejuvenating damaged hair follicles and increasing circulation of nutrients for healthy hair. The serum’s action is enhanced by protective flower extracts, which help maintain cellular health and lustrous hair.

HRS incorporates recent advances in hair follicle science. Specialized techniques influence bone marrow mesenchymal stem cell cultures to produce conditioned media focused on hair growth (Wnt-1a pathway) while twelve bio-identical growth factors and cytokines, each with proven efficacy in hair follicle stimulation, are added to make this the most scientifically advanced product of its type.

Ingredients: Deionized Water, Wnt-1a Pathway Stem CytokinesTM (proprietary admixture of human bone marrow stem cell derived growth factors and cytokines), Hyaluronic Acid, IGF-1 (sh-Oliogo- peptide-2), IGF-2 (sh-Polypeptide-31), aFGF (sh-Polypep- tide- 11), bFGF (sh-Polypeptide-1), KGF (sh-Polypeptide-3), KGF-2 (sh-Polypeptide-10), SCF (sh-Polypeptide-4), CSF-1 (sh-Polypeptide-73), PDGF-A (sh-Poly- peptide-8), EPO (sh-Polypeptide-72), Noggin (sh-Polypeptide-13), CG-VEGF (sh- Polypeptide-9), C3PiPa, Dehydroacetic Acid & Benzyl Alcohol as preservative.

EXPECTATIONS
The condition of your skin or hair depends upon your previous skin or hair condition, lifestyle, and compliance. For optimal results and outcome with ProCell microchanneling:

1. Understand that you are committing to a treatment, an investment, and the timeline of results will vary depending on current lifestyle and commitment to treatment regimen.

2. Remain compliant and attend treatment sessions as scheduled and follow after care recommendations.

3. Your results may be impacted by the set goal timeline you have in mind. Understand and realize that your current skin and hair connditions did not change in 24 hours. Multiple sessions may be required to obtain the best outcome.

4. You may need to modify your current lifestyle for optimal results. For example: someone will need to carry an umbrella to protect their face from direct sunrays or a person who is accustomed to wearing a baseball cap will need to revert to not using a hat to promote air flow within the scalp region.

SKIN Pre-Treatment Instructions
1. I typically go over the lips. If you get cold sores regularly, please consult with to your doctor about taking Acyclovir or Valcyclovir one day prior to your microchanneling to help reduce the likelihood of a breakout due to your treatment.

2. Discontinue Retinol (2% or higher) or Tretinoin at least 3 days prior to treatment to prevent contraindications.

3. For your first treatment, (and treatments with micro-filament size 0.25mm in general) numbing cream is typically not necessary, and you can expect mild redness and swelling, and a tight, warm sensation between 4 to 24 hours.

4. Treatments that follow with longer micro-filament lengths may require topical numbing cream, and can produce redness and swelling along with tiny flecks of redness for between 4 and 72 hours.

5. I am not a doctor. If pain relievers are not contraindicated with your personal health history, taking Acetaminophen to premedicate 2 hours before treatment may help reduce discomfort.

6. If you are being treated with PRP (protein rich plasma) or PRF (platelet rich fibrin) drink an extra 24-32 ounces of water for two to three days prior to treatment to boost your body’s hydration.

7. Prepare your skin before the appointment by arriving with a clean and washed face without makeup and without facial hair (clean shaven). Do not apply any products to your face before the appointment to avoid contraindications.

8. If you've had Botox, Fillers or Threads injected, then you must wait at least two weeks before treatment. And you must be satisfied with the Botox, Fillers, or Threads results before we can offer you any other treatments.

9. If you are planning to receive Botox, make sure that you give yourself at least 2 weeks post-Botox injections before receiving your microneedling procedure.

10. Avoid chlorine 24 hours before and after treatment for best results.

20. Send a text message when done with forms for prompt review.

SKIN post treatment care:
1. Preferably, no other products other than the products provided to you should be applied until the following day.

2. Avoid washing your face for the first 6 hours. Use tepid (lightly warm) water for the initial 24 hours to rinse the treated area. No cleanser required at this time.

3. Gently pat dry with a clean towel and follow with your aftercare products provided. The aftercare cream heals and also tightens your skin. Hyaluronic acid helps retain moisture Tom trans-epidermal water loss (TEWL). You may apply moisturizer like Cetaphil to reduce dryness when the aftercare cream feels dry to touch.

4. After 24 hours, you can use a gentle cleanser (example, Cetaphil or Cerave) to cleanse the face for the next 72 hours.

5. Always make sure that your hands are clean when touching the treated area. Have a hand sanitizer or anti-bacterial wipes on hand.

6. Avoid exposure to dust, pet dander and other irritants as best you can. You may experience a mild allergic reaction to pets and other things you typically do not react to within the first 24 hours.

7. Your skin may feel warm and tight, like a mild sunburn. This is an expected outcome during the first few days of this treatment.

8. Apply the aftercare products provided and moisturize with your favorite moisturizer or a product like Cetaphil or Cerave.
