What Is Microchanneling?

Microchanneling is a revolutionary treatment taking LA, Miami, and NYC by storm! This amazing procedure offers incredible looking results in just a matter of minutes without any downtime. Microchanneling works via a precise and even placement of “micro” amounts of Dr. Shaw’s proprietary blend of Botox, dermal fillers, vitamins, antioxidants, and growth factors directly onto the upper layer of your skin. When applied, the microchanneling mixture provides you with a radiant, plump, and evenly toned complexion.

Microchanneling Process

Dr. Shaw and his staff customize each treatment microinfusion with different ingredients depending upon your particular goals or skin correction needs. When you arrive at our Richmond office, you will be greeted with a warm smile and a comprehensive consultation session. After assessing your specific skincare needs, we will administer the microchanneling treatment via very fine, hypoallergenic, hollow gold plated needles. The procedure takes about 10 minutes and includes lidocaine to minimize discomfort and remove the need for numbing.

After your microchanneling treatment, you will notice an immediate improvement in your skin hydration and glow. In 2-7 days, your skin will take on a newfound smoothness – you will see a reduction in the appearance of fine lines, pore size, and oil on your skin. In 1-2 weeks, your skin will become refined and take on an airbrushed beauty. Long term benefits feature an increase in skin tightness as collagen and elastin production improves. Dr. Shaw recommends 1-3 monthly treatments to get started, the results will then last 3-4 months.

The procedure can 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. Following your microchanneling session, you can return to normal activities right away, though we ask you not to wear makeup until the next day.
