ProCell Serums and Micro-channeling in New Jersey
The ProCell system of serums and micro-channeling creates thousands of micro-channels in the skin that allow for the proprietary serums to penetrate. Micro-channeling is also commonly known as microneedling. The Procell system can be used for anti-aging, scarring, acne scars, stretch marks, and hair regrowth.
How does ProCell work?
The ProCell micro-channel device creates thousands of micro-channels in the skin. The surrounding uninjured skin and inflammatory response then begins, leading to the formation of new collagen, elastin and other extra-cellular matrix components.

The addition of ProCell serums adds growth factors to further stimulate new collagen and extra-cellular matrix deposition.
