What Is Microchanneling and How Long Does it Last?



Advancements in technology have made many things we deemed impossible; possible. We live in a world where differentiating between what is natural and artificial is becoming more and more challenging.


This is especially true in the world of cosmetics and beauty. Having perfect glowing skin, beautifully shaped eyebrows, and facial features to match is something that is all about achievable through modern science, medicine, and technology.



What Is Microchanneling?

Microchanneling is one such innovation in non-surgical facial rejuvenation that is gaining immense popularity as it is seen by many to be a much safer alternative to other procedures such as botox and facial surgery. Many experts are hailing it as the best skin-care treatment available for long-lasting healthy and younger-looking skin.

The Microchanneling Process

Microchanneling might seem intense for those that aren’t altogether comfortable with the idea of cosmetic surgery and treatments. After all, the procedure does involve a little bit of pain and discomfort. This is because the procedure creates a controlled wound response in areas of dead skin to open up channels that allow new collagen production and elastin to flow through in order to repair and provide the nutrients needed for glowing and gorgeous-looking skin.


How Long Does Microchanneling Last?


A Microchannelling procedure can last different durations based on the type of procedure undertaken, the age in question, and an individual’s physical health. The procedure is generally done in intervals with multiple treatments in order to get the most effective results. In most cases, a microchanneling procedure should last anywhere from 2-10 years. It all depends on how well you maintain your skin and hair post-procedure.



How Many Microchanneling Treatments Should I have?


Microchanneling at Inked Beauty bar has a cumulative effect. The skin-healing response, coupled with the human growth factor serums, create two-pronged skin renewal. The number of recommended treatments can depend on what exactly we are looking to help with. For deeper wrinkles and scarring, 3-6 treatments could be necessary to achieve the results you want. For light anti-aging treatments, only 1-2 treatments would be sufficient.






Why Is Microchanneling Especially Helpful For Those That Suffer From Acne?


Acne is a skin condition most common in teens and young adults. It can be found anywhere on the body and is a skin condition that consists of small pimples that can be either white or black. These blackheads and whiteheads are commonly known as comedones.


  • Blackheads: Blackheads are the pimples formed when someone has acne. These pimples open on the surface of the skin and have a black appearance because of the reaction it has to oxygen present in the air.


  • Whiteheads: Whiteheads on the other hand are closed under the surface of the skin, since they’re not interacting with the oxygen present in the air, they have a white appearance.


For those that suffer from acne-related problems, microchanneling can be a great solution as it helps boost topical serums and nutrients into the skin by a whopping 300%. This helps your skin rejuvenate faster and also conceals scar tissues and fine lines that are quite prevalent in acne.


What Are The Benefits Of Microchanneling?


The fact that microchanneling helps instill essential nutrients deep into the tissues of the skin is what makes it so effective compared to other treatments. It is in a way assisting your body and skin to revitalize itself rather than forcing it to do so; which is unlike other treatments. This fundamental difference makes microchanneling especially effective for:


  1. Concealing wrinkles and fine lines

  2. Correcting uneven texture and color tones

  3. Getting rid of acne scars/acne scarring

  4. Minimizing stretch marks

  5. Keloid Scars

  6. Repairing surgical and traumatic scars

  7. Eliminating hair loss

  8. Making skin look young and beautiful





How Effective Is Microchanneling Against Stretch Marks?


Stretch marks are a common skin problem found predominantly in adults. They are formed usually when adults stretch out their dermis. The dermis is the skin layer that can be found in the middle of the skin layers. The name comes from its location, which is the epidermis. This skin layer contains nerve endings, blood capillaries, and even sweat glands. When the dermis is continuously stretched and torn, the connective tissues within the layer can form scars. This scarring is known as dermal scarring.


These fine lines on the body referred to as ‘stretch marks’ can be distasteful to look at. While the human skin is relatively elastic, when overly stretched, it can disrupt the production of collagen. Collagen is the protein stack that builds up the connective tissue found in the skin. This disruption in collagen build-up causes stretch marks to appear. For those of you who are working out or losing weight stretch marks are something, you are most likely to encounter.


Microchanneling is especially effective when it comes to concealing stretch marks by opening up channels for collagen, elastin, and the injected nutrient-filled serum to repair and tighten areas of stretched skin.


Can Microchanneling Really Stop Hair Loss?


Hair loss is common in adults of both genders. Hair loss can be triggered by many factors that include inherited genetics, the state of one's mental or physical health, medications, and much more. This is why taking care of your hair is important from a young age, as aging isn’t necessarily a cause of hair loss. In fact, the two most common causes for hair loss are:


  • Genetics: It’s been proven by scientists that hair loss can indeed be inherited from either parent. This type of hair loss is commonly known as male-pattern hair loss or alopecia.


  • Problems With Mental Health: Research studies have proven that taking a lot of stress either physically or mentally, can result in hair loss. While men can develop bald spots around their forehead, women can notice thinning of the hair, especially, around the top of their head.


Despite the many natural and man-made remedies out there for hair loss, none have proven to be as effective as Microchannelling. This procedure conducted by medical practitioners and physicians all over the world is widely considered to be the best cure for several skin-related problems, as well as hair loss. The procedure can help reduce hair loss and eventually stop it altogether while stimulating the growth of new hair.
