One of the hottest new procedures in cosmetic medicine is micro-channeling. Though the term itself may seem a bit daunting, don’t let the name fool you: micro-channeling is a minimally-invasive procedure used to help erase the signs of aging and correct a wide variety of cosmetic imperfections. The science is real, the results are stunning, and there’s never been a better time to take a step toward your cosmetic ideal.
So, just what is micro- channeling, anyway? This cutting edge procedure uses an electric pen-shaped wand equipped with a roller head that has 12 extremely fine needles. Depending on your cosmetic needs, our aesthetician will determine the correct depth for the needles. When this wand is guided across your face, it creates microscopic puncture wounds that help break down scar tissue and stimulate the skin to regenerate quickly. Through the regeneration process, your body produces natural collagen and new capillaries, increasing the blood flow to your outer layers of skin and leaving you with a refreshed, rejuvenated appearance.
Micro-channeling has been proven useful for a wide variety of skin imperfections, including:
- Mild to moderate acne and acne scarring
- New or old scars
- Loose or sagging skin
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Stretch marks
- Uneven skin texture or large pore size
After your procedure, our medical aesthetician, Giuliana Crider, will soothe your skin and promote the healing process with medical grade skincare products, and recommend products for follow-up use at home.
Micro-channeling requires little, if any, downtime, and you can return to your daily routine right away. This procedure can be repeated every 4-6 weeks until you achieve your desired results, and to maintain your complexion.
Our micro-channeling patients have reported fuller, more youthful appearances, smoother skin, and radiant complexions. To get started, call Orlando Plastic Surgery Center at (407) 857-6261. We look forward to seeing you!
