Wollongong’s Best Clinic for Microneedling and Microchanneling: What’s the difference?

Wollongong’s Best Clinic for Microneedling and Microchanneling: What’s the difference?

Good day beautiful readers!

So! You’ve been researching microneedling and microchanneling, but you’re still not sure about the differences between the two treatments. I mean, both are using micro needles that are penetrating the skin that promotes it’s own collagen production, right?

Let’s dive in and see if we can clarify the differences for you so that you will have a much clearer understanding of which to choose for your intended concern and skin goals.

Here, at Skin Revival, we use the safest and most innovative devices in microneedling and microchanneling:


  • Exceed Microneedling
  • Procell Therapies Microchanneling


I decided to make this the first thing we’ll discuss because most readers want to know what each treatment will do for them. 

Both Exceed Microneedling and Procell Therapies Microchanneling stimulate collagen and elastin production with the benefits of: 

  • Improving overall skin tone and texture
  • Reducing acne scars, stretch marks and surgical scars
  • Reducing fine lines
  • Reducing pore size
  • Reducing pigmentation

The similarities between Exceed Microneedling and Procell Therapies Microchanneling include:

  • Needle depth ranging from 0.25mm to 2.5mm depth
  • Combine a hyaluronic acid mask to hydrate the skin
  • Combine LED light therapy to increase healing time
  • Suitable for all skin types

The main differences between Exceed Microneedling and Procell Therapies Microchanneling include:

  • Device: needles and technique
  • Delivery system
  • Post treatment aftercare
  • Treatment interval
  • Treatment cost

Let’s break these differences down:


Exceed Microneedling poses a tilting needle plate, adapting to the surface of the treated skin, evenly and efficiently penetrating the skin in a gliding circular motion. This makes sure that the whole surface that is being treated, is being penetrated at the level where the cytokines are activated to start the healing process.

Procell Therapies Microchanneling consists of ultra fine vibrating needles, utilising a tapping/stamping technique, to minimise skin injury for a more comfortable treatment, with less down time. 

Delivery System

Exceed Microneedling with Hyaluronic Acid Serum: A hyaluronic acid is used to create the ‘slip’ required for the needling device to run seamlessly across the skin.

Exceed Microneedling with MesoTherapy Solutions: The key difference with this treatment is the use of specially formulated meso serums. These serums are used in replacement of the standard Hyaluronic Acid and offer an additional layer of benefits designed to target specific concerns, including stretch marks and scars, pigmentation and photoaging.

Procell Therapies Microchanneling: A stem cell derived growth-factor and cytokine serum to support cellular renewal is the secret power within the treatment. The bioactive signalling molecules amplify cell to cell communication which stimulates pre-existing cells to greater levels of function in order to facilitate skin rejuvenation. 


Exceed Microneedling: Continue your prescribed skin care routine, adding in any active products after 3 days.

Procell Therapies Microchanneling: The Procell aftercare serums included in your treatment encourage the skin to continuously produce growth factors, stimulating collagen and elastin production between treatments to maximise results. Each treatment includes a one-week supply of Procell After Care Serums, with the option to purchase full-sized products.


Exceed Microneedling requires 6 weeks between treatments.

Procell Therapies Microchanneling can be retreated after 4 weeks due to less surface trauma.


Exceed Microneedling with HA: 
$320 per treatment
$810 Prepaid Package of 3 

Exceed Microneedling with MesoTherapy:

So there you have it! To sum up, microchanneling is microneedling evolved. With a more comfortable experience and the growth-factor stem cell serum to support cellular renewal, Procell Therapies Microchanneling is the best choice with enhanced results in a shorter time-frame with less downtime.
