Microchanneling is collagen stimulation using a micro channel delivery of peptides, growth factors & cytokines. Micro-filaments are gently applied to create thousands of stimulating micro channels/fractures in your skin.
Because microchanneling offers a wide variety of treatments dependent upon a client’s own needs, duration will vary. During early stages of aging or any other issues (scarring…), 1-4 treatments are successfully lessening the unwanted fine lines and deep wrinkles. Acne scars and other body scars will benefit from 4-6 sessions.
There is no limit to the number of treatments that one can receive as long as adequate time passes between each treatment. I suggest a series done twice a year for most aged skins.
Microchanneling can be performed 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, brighter, plumper and all-round healthier after a series of treatments.
Relative contraindications include: keloids or raised scarring; history of eczema, psoriasis and any other chronic skin conditions; history of actinic (solar) keratosis; active herpes simplex infections (cold sores); diabetes; untreated high blood pressure, current use of blood thinners, currently pregnant, presence of a lot of raised moles any raised lesions on the area to be treated (I can go around them), warts.

Firstly, the device – where was it made? What are the components? Are you using a new head every time you use it? Are the new heads serialized?
Secondly, what products are you applying after – what format are they in – if it is a gel or cream it can not travel through the channel you created.
Your home device may or may not go deep enough in your skin to bring about a path to the epidermal-dermal junction. This is required to stimulate your keratinocytes cells that activate the production of new collagen.
