Microchanneling Versus Microneedling: Which is Better for What?

If you are searching for a skin rejuvenation treatment, you might have encountered two popular options: microchanneling and microneedling. Both procedures have gained popularity in the field of facial aesthetics due to their effectiveness in improving the appearance of the skin. However, understanding the key differences between microchanneling and microneedling can help you determine which treatment is better suited for your specific needs.

Understanding Microchanneling

Microchanneling is a minimally invasive procedure that involves a specialized device with tiny needles. These needles create microchannels in the skin, stimulating the body’s natural healing process. A serum containing growth factors, peptides and other beneficial ingredients is applied to the skin during the treatment. The microchannels created by the needles allow for enhanced serum absorption, promoting collagen production and improving the skin’s overall texture and tone.

Exploring Microneedling

Microneedling employs a device with fine needles to create controlled micro-injuries on the skin’s surface. This process stimulates collagen and elastin production, delivering smoother, firmer skin. Depending on the desired outcome, microneedling can be performed with or without applying a topical serum. It is commonly used to address fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars and uneven skin texture.

Comparing the Benefits

Both microchanneling and microneedling offer numerous benefits for the skin. For example, they can minimize the visibility of wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars and hyperpigmentation. However, there are differences to consider when deciding between the two:

  • Microchanneling is particularly effective in delivering topical serums into the skin, allowing for enhanced absorption of active ingredients.
  • Microneedling stimulates collagen and elastin production, improving skin texture and firmness.

Choosing the Right Treatment

The choice between microchanneling and microneedling ultimately depends on your skin concerns and treatment goals. For example, if you are primarily looking to enhance the absorption of serums and promote skin rejuvenation by delivering targeted ingredients, microchanneling may be the better option for you. Contrarily, if you are seeking overall skin rejuvenation, including improvements in texture and firmness, microneedling might be more suitable.

I've been to Michele for a numbers of years for various procedures and she's fantastic, a true artist. Michele never pushes procedures, always takes her time and the final results are superb. I'm in the entertainment industry and need to look my best. I'm thrilled that she's now moved offices and I was able to track her down, I wouldn't trust my face to anyone else. My advice, put yourself in her hands and trust and you'll be amazed at the results: not only is her work exceptional but very natural.

Robin M.

I have gone to Michele for more than 10 years, following her to her new location. It's so long ago but I think I heard of her expertise in a magazine article or blog. I trust Michele completely and have done botox and filler on many occasions during this time, The results are always perfect, so natural.

Scott S.

As someone who was very hesitant to try Botox, as I am a performer/dancer and expression is a huge part of my career, I could not be happier with the treatments I have received from Michele! I have gotten so many "You look so young!" and "You skin looks incredible!". Michele took her time to explain to me the benefits of different treatments and was very responsive to my concerns. I have recommended friends to her who are so grateful to me! As a person who came to aesthetic medicine through an incredible journey of her own, Michele is unparalleled in her compassion, skill and knowledge. Go see her! You will be in the BEST hands!

Melodie D.

Michele Rivard is the best I have had for my injections of botox and fillers. She is meticulous, exact and knows what needs to be done to make my face be the best it can be. I highly recommend her for whatever you want done and you will be happy with the results.

Meredith G.

Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!

Jackie C.

Great front office, really good experience after what was a terrible accident. I was made to feel comfortable. Dr. Khosh is very good at what he does. I'm still healing but I'm confident of the results

Kaitlin M.

Dr. Khosh takes exceptional care of his patients. He has operated on me twice, each time making me feel extremely comfortable and satisfied with the results. His staff is also very kind and knowledgeable.

Leah G.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
