Microchanneling is a noninvasive procedure that stimulates your body’s ability to generate collagen, decreasing fine lines and wrinkles and improving overall skin quality and texture. A stamping technique is used to create microchannels in the skin, allowing deeper penetration of our specially formulated cocktail, including hyaluronic acid, glutathione, PRP, vitamin C, peptides, and neurotoxin. The skin is numbed prior to treatment for a relatively painless procedure, and the downtime is minimal. $300
How Often Should
You Get Microchanneling Treatments
One or two treatments may suffice to achieve lighter anti-aging goals, but if you have deeper wrinkles and scarring, it may require 4 to 6 treatments. Waiting for 3-4 weeks between each treatment is recommended to allow the skin to heal properly and maintain optimal results, including collagen synthesis and cellular renewal.

Microchanneling creates controlled micro-injuries in the skin, which trigger the body’s natural healing response. This response stimulates collagen and elastin production, improving skin texture, tone and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Microchanneling is a minimally invasive procedure and is generally not considered painful. The sensation during the treatment may vary depending on individual pain tolerance, but most people describe it as a mild to moderate prickling or vibrating sensation.
Before the treatment, your skin care provider may apply a numbing cream to the area to minimize discomfort. After the treatment, there may be a slight tingling or warmth in the treated area, but any pain should be minimal and short-lived. It’s always best to consult with your skincare provider if you have any concerns about discomfort during or after the procedure.
A microchanneling session typically takes around 30 to 60 minutes. However, the exact duration may vary depending on the area being treated and the extent of the treatment required. It is recommended to consult with a professional esthetician or skincare provider for an accurate time estimate for your specific needs.
The number of microchanneling sessions required to see results may vary depending on individual skin conditions and concerns. Some people may see improvements after just one session, while others may require multiple sessions to achieve their desired results. A series of 3-6 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart is recommended for optimal results. Your esthetician or skincare provider can advise you on the best treatment plan based on your needs and skin condition.
Some patients may experience mild and temporary side effects, including redness, swelling, and bruising in the treated area. These symptoms usually subside within a few hours to a day after the treatment.
In rare cases, patients may experience infection, scarring, or hyperpigmentation, but these are usually the result of inadequate post-treatment care or improper technique. It’s essential to choose an experienced and licensed skin care professional for your microchanneling treatment and follow their post-treatment instructions carefully.
Microchanneling is considered a safe procedure. The controlled micro-injuries created during microchanneling stimulate the skin’s natural healing response without causing significant damage. However, following proper pre- and post-treatment care instructions is important to minimize potential risks or complications.
After microchanneling, you can expect immediate post-treatment effects such as mild redness, sensitivity, and a feeling similar to a mild sunburn. These effects usually subside within a few hours to a day. Over the following days, you may notice improved skin texture, reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and increased firmness as the skin rejuvenates. Full results may take several weeks to appear as collagen production continues.
After the treatment, taking certain precautions is essential to ensure optimal results and minimize the risk of complications. Here are some things to avoid after microchanneling:
- Sun exposure: Avoid direct sunlight and apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher outdoors.
- Excessive heat: Avoid hot tubs, saunas, and intense workouts for at least 24-48 hours after the treatment.
- Skincare products: Avoid using exfoliants, retinoids, or other harsh skincare products for at least 24-48 hours after the treatment.
- Makeup: Avoid applying makeup for at least 24 hours after the treatment to allow the skin to heal.
Touching or scratching the treated area: Avoid touching, rubbing, or scratching it, as it can cause infection or delay the healing process.
Following these guidelines can help ensure a safe and effective recovery from microchanneling. Our skincare experts can provide detailed post-treatment instructions and answer any questions to help you achieve the best possible outcomes.
Microchanneling can help minimize the appearance of enlarged pores. The micro-injuries created during the treatment stimulate collagen production, which can lead to improved skin elasticity and firmness. The pores may appear smaller as the skin tightens and becomes more toned.
