MICROCHANNELING using ProCell
How Does ProCell Work?
The ProCell micro-channel device creates thousands of micro-channels in the skin. The surrounding uninjured skin and inflammatory response then begins, leading to the formation of new collagen, elastin and other extra-cellular matrix components. After several rounds of treatment, the skin texture and appearance is improved. The addition of ProCell serums adds growth factors to further stimulate new collagen and extra-cellular matrix deposition.
What Are The ProCell Growth Factors?
ProCell’s serums contain growth factors derived from stem cells found in human bone marrow. ProCell’s growth-factor serums promote more youthful-appearing skin, and lead to quicker recovery times from procedures.
