How does the Microcurrent Tone Facial work?
The Microcurrent Tone Facial uses both nanocurrent and microcurrent to tone, define, lift and sculpt skin, contouring the face while giving it a glowing boost. The ZIIP device has pioneered the use of nanocurrent, which are tiny electrical currents that are in sync with the human body. The results are long-lasting, and even the most sensitive skin types can tolerate and respond well to nanocurrent's intelligent energy.
Is the microcurrent device FDA approved?
The ZIIP device is FDA approved for facial stimulation.
What is microchanneling?
Microchanneling is a noninvasive procedure designed to stimulate your body’s own natural ability to generate collagen, elastin, and other building blocks of healthy skin. By stimulating the outermost layers of the skin, microchanneling can help your body start this process without penetrating into living tissue.
Does microchanneling hurt?
With minimal physical discomfort, most clients are able to do the procedure without numbing cream and without any noticeable pain. There is no lingering discomfort, and we have a number of strategies we employ to minimize discomfort during treatment. Post-procedure, most people report a “tight” feeling in their skin.
Is the microchanneling device FDA approved?
Yes, Procell Mcrochanneling is FDA approved and has been voted the best "micro-needling" device on the market.
How is microchanneling different than microneedling?
Microneedling creates similar tissue damage to the skin as microchanneling but with microneedling you have to go much deeper to get a similar result, which is more painful and has more downtime, it also increases the risk of infection. Additionally, the technique of microneedling can increase pore size and cause drag in the tissue. The disbursement of channels isn’t as even and doesn’t provide as much coverage either. The microchanneling device by Procell Therapies features unique linear precision micro-stamping, stimulating collagen-induction to reveal smoother and more radiant skin. Combined use with breakthrough stem cell growth-factor serums offer previously unattainable rejuvenation results with faster treatment time, and minimal irritation to the skin.
