Microchanneling

Gorgeous glowing skin with no downtime.

The Procedure

Would you like your skin to take on that Hollywood red carpet dewy-smooth glow? Like someone used an airbrush selfie filter? Except, this is really your skin. Or perhaps you are looking for the benefits of Botox and dermal fillers, but don’t like the idea of injections or are concerned about pain. Or maybe you are looking for the perfect treatment to prevent the signs of aging.

Microchanneling is a revolutionary treatment taking LA, Miami, and NYC by storm because it gives incredible looking skin in just a matter of minutes without any downtime. This procedure precisely and evenly places micro amounts of Dr. Shaw’s proprietary blend of Botox, dermal fillers, vitamins, antioxidants, and growth factors directly into the upper layers of the skin to give radiant, plump and evenly toned complexion. Dr. Shaw and his staff customize each treatment microinfusion with different ingredients depending upon your particular goals or skin correction needs.

The Details

Here is a list of ingredients in this special anti-aging cocktail:

Neuromodulator: Botox/Dysport/Juveau- by applying micro amounts directly into the skin, we can maximize benefits without concern for affecting the underlying muscles.

  • Reduces fine lines
  • Shrinks pore size
  • Reduces mild acne scars
  • Helps oily and acne prone skin
  • Prevents and corrects crepey skin under eyes

Dermal Filler:  Hyaluronic Acid- hydrates skin without lumps or unevenness from injections

  • Fills out lines
  • Plumps skin
  • Gives a dewey, fresh glow
  • Improves dullness

Cannabidiol:   Our skin contains receptors called CB2 which exert a potent anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant effect. This promotes the skin’s natural healing ability

  • Calms dry or irritated skin
  • Reduces redness
  • Helps with acne, rosacea, eczema or other skin conditions
  • Restores youthful texture via healing
  • Prevents signs of aging

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP): rich in growth factors which signal our body to produce collagen and elastin.

  • Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
  • Smooths texture
  • Heals irritated skin
  • Restores youthful glow

Vitamins C and E: Powerful antioxidants to combat free radical damage and help collagen synthesis

  • Overall improvement in skin health
  • Reverses sun damage
  • Hydrates dry skin
  • Reduces irritation
  • Reverses signs of aging
  • Brightens dull skin

Glutathione: Another antioxidant with similar benefits to Vitamin C and E above

  • Correct pigmentation problems

Hydroquinone/Phloretin: Powerful depigmenting compounds which reduce melanin

  • Correct pigmentation
  • Brightens skin
  • Promotes even tone

This procedure uses very fine, hollow gold plated needles (hypoallergenic) that are about the size of a human hair to deliver anti-aging ingredients directly into the skin. The procedure can also be used to improve the skin on your hands, neck and chest.  It is even less invasive than traditional microneedling, which is better suited for correction of more serious skin issues like deeper wrinkles or severe acne scarring. The procedure takes about 10 minutes. We also mix in a small amount of lidocaine so that it is very comfortable and no numbing is needed before. You can return to normal activities right away, though we ask you not to wear makeup until the next day.

Results:

  • Immediate: GLOW- skin looks hydrated, refreshed and bright
  • 2-7 days: SMOOTH-lines relax, pores shrink, less oily skin,
  • 1-2 weeks: REFINED- pigmentation problems corrected, skin looks airbrushed and very healthy, toned
  • Long Term: TIGHT-collagen and elastin production make skin tighter and firmer

Dr. Shaw recommends 1-3 monthly treatments to get started, the results will then last 3-4 months.
