When it comes to caring for your skin, there are a lot of options. From tried and true treatments like chemical peels to newer age procedures like laser treatments, the skincare industry is chock full of interesting ways to enhance your skin.

One of the latest treatments to cause a buzz in the industry is Microchanneling. Not to be confused with microneedling or microdermabrasion, this innovative procedure uses very small gold needles to get the skin glowing, boost collagen production, and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.* 

So what exactly is it?

Like all needling treatments, microchanneling gets its potency and power by creating microscopic punctures in the skin that promote collagen production. However, this lunch-time treatment is a revolutionized version of microneedling, penetrating deeper into the dermis while still being less invasive. 

Rather than the administrative device being rolled across the skin (which can cause microtears and additional pain), microchanneling relies on a “stamping” method that allows for deeper and more precise penetration of the skin, and delivery of nourishing vitamins, antioxidants, and anti-inflammatory compounds.

Not everyone has the same skin, and we would never treat our patients as though they did. At Travis Shaw, MD we create a customed tailored combination of Botox, dermal fillers, vitamins, antioxidants, and growth factors that get delivered directly into the skin through the needles for an individualized experience. 

When pressed into the skin, the needles create a ‘channel’ to the deeper dermal layer of skin to stimulate collagen production and allows the customized cocktail to penetrate further.

What can I expect from the procedure?

While it may sound a bit intense, the procedure is pain-free, with zero downtime and takes only ten minutes! Within hours from getting the treatment, you’ll begin to notice a change in your skin. 

Microchanneling treatments are already clinically proven to reduce fine lines and stimulate collagen growth, but with the addition of our special boost of anti-aging and antioxidant ingredients, expect your skin to glow.* 

This safe treatment is effective for all skin types and is the trendy new way to transform your skin.
