what is Microchanneling?
If home skin treatments are no longer effective, but you are not ready for surgical procedures, consider skin rejuvenation treatments, such as microneedling and a similar technique of microchanneling. Highly trained physician Dr. Mukhtar Anees is delighted to offer microneedling (collagen induction therapy) to individuals in the Fort Worth and Burleson, TX area utilizing the advanced Rejuvapen™ and innovative ProCell™ microchanneling technology. Microchanneling employs fine needles to effectively and safely create micro-injuries in the skin while microchanneling uses small wire-based filaments. These small perforations prompt the body's natural production of elastin and collagen, two nutrients that improve the appearance and health of your skin. Easily performed alongside other skin treatments, like nourishing vitamin serums or platelet-rich plasma (PRP), nonsurgical microneedling and microchanneling may help reduce scars, stretch marks, and pores, among other cosmetic concerns. Make an appointment for a consultation at Med Spa At Seena One to hear more about the benefits of collagen induction therapy and how to customize the procedure for your skin concerns and goals.

am i a candidate for microchanneling?
You may be a great candidate for microneedling or microchanneling treatments if you have slight or moderate anti-aging or skin issues, such as wrinkles, reduced elasticity, or uneven texture. These collagen induction services may also reduce the look of pores, scars, hyperpigmentation, and stretch marks. While the production of elastin and collagen generally takes about a month to have an effect on your complexion, microneedling and microchanneling treatments can allow you to enjoy natural-looking results and gain better overall skin health.
how does microchanneling work?
Microchanneling or microchanneling is performed in one of our office procedure rooms in about 30 – 60 minutes with numbing cream or local anesthesia if requested; however, patients generally experience little or no pain and discomfort. Dr. Anees uses the state-of-the-art Rejuvapen microneedling and ProCell microchanneling handpieces to customize the procedure for each individual patient. The treatment area will be cleaned before the handpiece is passed evenly over targeted areas. Once the microneedling or microchanneling is complete, a topical treatment, like platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or a serum with a vitamin infusion, may be applied for deeper penetration of the nutrients into the skin layers. A moisturizer with sun protection will then be massaged in to help protect your sensitive skin following the treatment.
What to Expect after microchanneling
After your treatment, you may have mild swelling and redness for around a day; however, this should subside naturally. It may take about 1 – 2 months for the elastin and collagen supply to increase until you see visible changes in the appearance and health of your complexion. For the best improvements, you may want to schedule follow-up sessions every 4 – 6 weeks to enjoy optimal outcomes and long-lasting skin benefits.
How much does microneedling or microchanneling cost?
Your microneedling or microchanneling costs will depend on the types of procedures in your plan and the number of areas to treat. In your initial consultation, Dr. Anees will evaluate your skin and then develop your personalized plan. Once this is done, a member of our staff will go over your treatment costs and talk with you about what to expect during the procedure. Med Spa At Seena One often offers discounts on treatments and packages to clients in the Fort Worth and Burleson, TX area so be sure to ask about our current deals and membership program benefits during your appointment.
What exactly are microneedling and microchanneling?
Microchanneling and microchanneling are minimally invasive treatments performed to rejuvenate your skin. A natural fibrous protein, collagen helps keep your skin smooth, supple, and firm. As we age, our supply of collagen is reduced and the skin becomes thin and loses elasticity. Microchanneling and microchanneling make small wounds in the skin with fine needles, which initiates collagen production and the generation of new skin cell growth. After a short recovery period, your skin appears firmer, brighter, and healthier.
Can I combine other treatments with microneedling or microchanneling?
During the microneedling and microchanneling process, microchannels are created in the skin that makes it easier for treatments to penetrate the lower layers. This is why these procedures are frequently performed before other skin treatments, like vitamin-rich serums or PRP (platelet-rich plasma). In your initial consultation, Dr. Anees will talk with you about the treatments that may enhance your microneedling or microchanneling and best contribute to your skin's health.
How many treatments are recommended for optimal results?
Most clients receive 3 – 6 microneedling or microchanneling treatments to achieve their best results. However, the number of treatments you require will depend on your goals and the overall condition of your skin. Collagen induction therapy may be performed every 4 – 6 weeks as needed. In your initial consultation, Dr. Anees will estimate the number of treatments you might require based on your skin, cosmetic concerns, and goals. Once you have achieved your desired complexion and appearance, touch-up sessions about twice a year may be recommended to maintain your results.
Are microneedling and microchanneling safe for everyone?
In general, microneedling and microchanneling are safe for all skin types and tones. Skin injuries created by the process are so minor that there are usually no side effects after the treatment. Collagen induction therapy can be applied to most areas of skin, including the face, neck, arms, chest, thighs, and calves. Microchanneling and microchanneling are not recommended if you have taken Accutane recently or if you have an active skin infection, open wound, or the herpes simplex virus. In addition, these treatments may not be recommended if you are nursing, pregnant, or undergoing radiation therapy.
