The skincare world is always evolving thanks to constant research and innovative products emerging every day! One of the latest and greatest facial treatments to make its debut is Microchanneling!
What is Microchanneling?
Microchanneling is a non-invasive and pain-free service that essentially produces a small, microscopic wound in the top layer of the skin to produce a natural and healthy healing response. It also allows deeper penetration of serums and other topicals used during your facials! A few other benefits of microchanneling include:
- Exfoliating the skin
- Increasing collagen production
- Improving elasticity
- Reducing scarring
- Minimizing fine lines and wrinkles
What is the difference between Microneedling and Microchanneling?
The primary difference between microneedling and microchanneling is the process in which the microscopic wound is created. Microneedling uses just that, very fine needles. Microchanneling, on the other hand, uses small hair-like silicon tips. Because needles used in microneedling are more aggressive on the skin they definitely have a few cons, including:
- Requiring more downtime after your treatment
- Irritation to skin prone to redness
- Possible breakouts, especially if your skin is acne prone
- Not being the most relaxing form of treatment
Microchanneling is far less aggressive in its approach while still providing comparable results. It is so gentle, in fact, that it is safe to use around the hard-to-treat lines around the eyes and lips, making it a great alternative to treatments that require injections as well. Now you can get a little something done to spruce up your appearance before an upcoming event, without having to pencil in healing time afterward. It is also a fabulous way to truly get a bang for your buck with all of the products used during your facial, as it promotes product penetration unlike ever before!
