General Information and Frequently Asked Questions
Procell's Micro-Channeling system is a “lunch-time” treatment that transforms the look and feel of damaged skin to a smoother, and healthier looking skin. During the treatment, very small micro-needles penetrate the upper layers of your skin creating small, micro-injuries. These micro-injuries stimulate a natural healing response, which leads to the creation of new collagen. Over the course of several treatments, this repetitive healing process can create a new layer of collagen that can improve the overall appearance of your skin.
VibraDermabrasion is a unique treatment that gently exfoliates the upper layers of the skin. The Vibra-Derm paddle moves rapidly against the surface of the skin, exfoliating skin cells leaving your skin looking clean and refreshed.
MicroChanneling and VibraDermabrasion can be used anywhere on the face and body where skin imperfections are located. Treatments can smooth out imperfections and improve the surface texture of your skin. Your skin will appear cleaner and healthier after a series of treatments.
