Micro-Channeling, what is that?
Micro-Channeling is a minimally invasive skin treatment that targets and diminishes the appearance of visible wrinkles, unwanted acne scars, and sun-spots. During the treatment, Joanna creates tiny pinholes to the outermost layer of the skin promoting a natural healing response. The pinholes also function as micro-channels for quick absorption when the serum is applied to the skin. The serum activates collagen-producing cells in your body to increase collagen production and create permanent new healthy skin!
Micro-channeling may be used as a separate treatment only or as an additional add-on to other skin treatments to enhance the effectiveness of skin health. To get an idea, Hydrafacial or chemical peels are perfect treatments for Micro-channeling pairing.
I am interested, can you tell me more about the procedure?
I myself, love this procedure. I highly recommended Micro-channeling to all my clients that are looking to improve their skin health, in the least abrasive way.
The treatment requires the usage of a handheld device, lightly grazing across the skin using a stamping motion type of pattern. Unlike micro-needling, this instrument does not cause damage or trauma to the surface of the skin. These microscopic abrasions stimulate and produces new collagen and elastin.
After the stamping phase is complete, we apply a skin serum to target areas to nourish the skin and regenerate new skin cells. There will be some downtime during the recovery stage, but it should be no longer than a few days. You can do your face, arms, neck, and stomach to regenerate tighter healthier skin.
The skin serum that is applied is a well-formulated concoction contains the following ingredients with benefits. (take home an extra vile for $90)
- Vitamins A, B5, C, E
- CoEnzyme 10
- Plant Isoflavones
Anti Wrinkle & Stimulate Collagen Production
- Human Growth Factors
- Bone Marrow
- Ceramide A2
- Sodium Hyaluronate
During your recovery stage, it is important to keep up with maintenance in order to maximize the result. I highly recommend applying Sorella’s Quench & Protect Hydrating SPF 30. (purchase this on your next visit $51)
- Leaves skin deeply moisturized
- Excellent makeup base

Be Comfortable & Confident in your skin
No one should feel insecure about their skin, but the reality is that we all are fighting the same battle. Whether it is signs of aging or acne scars, we get self-conscious about our skin. When you are ready to take matters into your own hands, call or book online with Joanna. Together we can redefine age. $360 a treatment or $260 when added to another facial treatment, ie: a Hydrafacial.

WHAT IS THE PLASMA PEN & HOW DOES THE PLASMA PEN WORK?
Plasma pen is today’s raving non-surgical skin treatment that reduces the volume of excess skin. It is a skin lifting, tightening and rejuvenation tool used to target signs of aging. (Wrinkles, Fine lines, Bags, and Dull Skin)
The Plasma Pen is an FDA approved device used to perform fibroblast therapy. This method of technique uses electrical stimulation to stimulate and activate collagen production within the skin.
The pen converts electrical energy into molecular gas nitrogen and transmits the energized gas through a probe to the surface of the skin. WITH NO CONTACT to the skin, the energy creates a little spark and depending on the pattern and how close you place the “dots” will create that Lift and Tightening of the skin, Wrinkle, scar or stretch mark.
You can see the skin tighten right before your eyes, watching the skin tightening immediately during the treatments is one of many attracting features that proves to have instant results. It is the converted energy that is channeled through the probe stimulating fibroblast cells underneath the surface and causing micro-trauma within the epidermal layer where collagen and elastin are rebuilt.
WHAT ABOUT AREAS OF THE BODY?
The process is done on any area of your body, the possibilities are endless. Fibroblast treatment produces visible results for any area of the body.
There are some downtime 8-16 days which may include swelling (around the eye area). I will say its a 2 week of little dots on the area treated, so no sun or make-up for 8-10 days. After about 8-10 days the dots begin to slough off and you can cover up with some make-up if on your face at this time. But while you have the dots on, no Sun, no Sauna, no shaving, no workouts in the beginning and no picking at IT. This is trauma to your body, you need to rest and let it heal itself to get great results and prevent any after treatment complications.
Be Advise The key thing is to keep the area dry (no water on the dots as we don’t want them to soften and slough off too soon). The longer the dot stays the more healing time it has and the better the results.
