A Guide to Microchanneling

Most people have at least one skin concern they’d like to address—from signs of aging to discoloration. Rather than purchasing dozens of different products with subpar results, there is one effective treatment that can address many issues that you may be able to try right at your beauty salon. Here’s a closer look into the innovative skin treatment known as microchanneling.

What Is Microchanneling?

Microchanneling is a noninvasive procedure designed to stimulate your body’s own natural ability to generate collagen, elastin, and other building blocks of healthy skin. By stimulating the outermost layers of the skin, microchanneling can help your body start this process without penetrating into living tissue. Technicians may use a rejuvenating serum or other product following the microchanneling process, depending on your treatment goals.

What Are the Benefits?

Creating tiny micro-injuries in the skin kick starts its healing response, which can considerably increase collagen and elastin production. These agents help to reduce signs of aging. The treatment can also help address cosmetic concerns such as uneven skin tone and hyperpigmentation, acne scars, large pores, and rosacea. Because the tiny punctures penetrate the skin’s surface, microchanneling can also make products more effective by allowing them to seep deeper into the skin.

In addition to offering microchanneling services for the face, some beauty salons also extend the service for other concerns. For instance, the treatment may help to reduce the appearance of cellulite and stretch marks over the stomach. It has also been shown to stimulate hair growth among dormant follicles, making it a hair loss treatment worth considering.

What Are the Benefits?

The procedure is ideal for those with unruly or thinning brows, as it produces a bolder, elegant look that draws attention to the eyes and frames the face attractively. Similar to brow waxes and gels, it tames and sets the brows and adds a glossy finish. The difference is you don’t need to re-apply it every day. In addition, having a hairstylist set your brows means professional results.
