Microchanneling in Colleyville

A non-invasive procedure to rejuvenate your skin.

Microchanneling is a relatively new treatment that not many people have heard of. It is best described as the enhanced version of a “Microneedling” treatment, which you may be more familiar with. 

The microchannel procedure uses a handheld device with thin needles that puncture the skin, creating micro-wounds. This is done across the treated area in a stamping pattern. These tiny microscopic skin injuries trigger the body’s healing response, producing new collagen and elastin in the treated areas. This production results in a dramatic improvement in your skin’s firmness and texture. It also improves the appearance of pore size, stretch marks, and scarring.

Microchanneling Treatments

Microchanneling is a very versatile treatment that can treat many different skin conditions across the body.

Fine Lines & Wrinkles

Fine lines and wrinkles are the most common issues our clients want to treat with microchanneling. It is an incredibly effective treatment because the triggered healing process helps to “fill in” or plump the lines and wrinkles.

Skin Tightening

Producing elastin during the healing process helps firm the skin and improve laxity. We often see clients who want skin tightening done on their necks or arms, where loose skin can occur due to aging or weight loss.

Acne & Scarring

The regeneration of collagen can improve skin tone and texture, which means blemishes from acne or scars can be dramatically improved.

Stretch Marks

Because Microchanneling improves lines, wrinkles, and scarring, it is also surprisingly effective in reducing the appearance of stretch marks.

Microchanneling, Microneedling, Microdermabrasion... What is the difference?

It can be confusing with all the different treatment options available to know which one is right for you. Understanding these differences can help you make a more educated decision.

Microchanneling and Microneedling are very similar treatments, with the only difference being the type of device used. Microneedling uses a roller device with extremely thin needles that penetrate the skin as it is rolled over the treatment area. Microchanneling uses a stamp device that stamps microneedles into the skin. Both ultimately perform the same treatment, but the roller device used in Microneedling can cause micro-tears as it rolls across, causing unnecessary trauma to the skin.

That’s why we prefer microchanneling at North Texas MedSpa. This device allows for more control and a significantly smaller risk of tearing.

Microdermabrasion is an entirely different type of treatment. This procedure involves using an abrasive device to exfoliate the outer layer of your skin. Upon healing, the results include brighter, smoother skin and diminished or eliminated blemishes. However, microdermabrasion only affects the outer layers. Therefore, it won’t cause an increase in collagen production or have as big of an impact on deeper wrinkles or loose skin as microchanneling provides.

The results speak for themselves.

The results are typically noticeable after just one treatment, however 3 to 6 treatments are recommended for best results.

Results will become even more noticeable and dramatic with time and further treatments.
