Key Features of Potenza RF Microneedling

  • Combination of RF and Microneedling:
    • Microneedling: Involves using fine needles to create controlled micro-injuries in the skin, promoting the body’s natural healing process and stimulating collagen and elastin production.
    • Radiofrequency (RF) Energy: Delivers targeted heat deep into the dermis through the microneedles, enhancing the collagen-stimulating effects and tightening the skin.
  • Customizable Treatments:
    • Potenza offers adjustable needle depths and RF energy levels, allowing practitioners to tailor treatments to each patient’s specific skin type and concerns.
    • It can treat various skin issues, including fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, enlarged pores, and skin laxity.
  • Four Modes of Operation:
    • Potenza features monopolar, bipolar, 1 MHz, and 2 MHz RF modes, offering versatility in treatment options. Monopolar RF provides deeper, more targeted energy, while bipolar RF is more superficial, ideal for treating the upper layers of the skin.
  • Advanced Technology:
    • The device includes real-time impedance monitoring and energy delivery control, ensuring consistent and safe treatments.
    • Enhanced user interface and ergonomically designed handpiece for precise control and ease of use.
  • Minimal Downtime:
    • Potenza treatments typically involve minimal downtime compared to more invasive procedures. Patients may experience some redness and swelling immediately after the treatment, but these side effects usually subside within a few days.

Fusion Tip Technology

One of the unique features of the Potenza system is the Fusion Tip, designed to enhance the delivery and absorption of topical products during the microneedling process.

Key Features of the Fusion Tip

  • Enhanced Product Absorption:
    • The Fusion Tip creates micro-channels in the skin, allowing topical products such as serums, peptides, and growth factors to penetrate deeper into the dermis, increasing their effectiveness.
  • Optimized Design:
    • The Fusion Tip features a unique design that combines microneedling with RF energy and vacuum suction. This combination improves the delivery of topical products and enhances overall treatment outcomes.
  • Customizable Treatments:
    • Practitioners can use the Fusion Tip with various topical products tailored to the patient’s specific skin concerns, such as hydration, anti-aging, brightening, and acne treatment.
  • Safe and Efficient:
    • The Fusion Tip ensures uniform and controlled delivery of both RF energy and topical products, reducing the risk of adverse effects and optimizing treatment results.

Procedure with Potenza RF Microneedling

  • Consultation:
    • A thorough consultation with a qualified practitioner is essential to assess your skin type, concerns, and suitability for the treatment.
  • Preparation:
    • The treatment area is cleaned, and a topical anesthetic may be applied to minimize discomfort during the procedure.
  • Treatment:
    • The practitioner uses the Potenza device to deliver RF energy through microneedles into the skin. The Fusion Tip may be used concurrently to apply topical products, enhancing their absorption.
    • The procedure typically takes 30-60 minutes, depending on the area being treated.
  • Post-Treatment Care:
    • Patients may experience redness, swelling, and mild discomfort immediately after the treatment. These effects usually subside within a few days.
    • Follow the practitioner’s post-treatment care instructions, which may include avoiding sun exposure, using gentle skincare products, and applying any recommended topical treatments.

What Skin Concerns Can Potenza RF Microneedling Treat?

The Potenza RF microneedling treatment can treat a wide variety of skin concerns on the face and body. Potenza treats all skin types, anywhere on the body, anytime of year. Various skin concerns can be addressed with Potenza RF Microneedling treatments. When handled by an experienced individual, it can:

  • Ensure smooth skin
  • Ensure that pores do not appear large
  • Relieve acne scarring and hyperpigmentation
  • Reduce the appearance of stretch marks
  • Remove a small amount of fat just beneath the skin (not enough to reduce facial volume significantly)

Potenza RF Microneedling works by creating microscopic channels, which allow the device to deliver radiofrequency energy to the deeper layers of the skin. This energy then helps to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, which are proteins that support smoother, firmer, and more youthful-looking skin.

There are also several places on the body that can benefit from the treatment, including the abdomen, buttocks, chest, arms, and knees, but it is widely used on the face and neck (particularly to treat jowls, to firm the jawline, and to enhance the area around the mouth).

What Happens During a Potenza RF Microneedling Session?

Prior to treatment, numbing cream may be applied to the area to make it more comfortable.

On the treated area, 1-3 passes will be conducted with the Potenza RF Microneedling device. Using the special applicator with coated pins, fat and connective tissue will be gently warmed, resulting in tighter skin, reduced wrinkles, and overall rejuvenation.

Most people require three treatment sessions, spaced four to six weeks apart, to achieve optimal results. The entire treatment session will last for about 30 to 60 minutes. After the treatment, you may notice some redness and swelling in the treated area, but this is normal and should resolve within a few days.

How Does Potenza RF Microneedling Work?

RF Microneedling uses ultra-fine needles and heat to penetrate the top layer of the skin and trigger the body’s natural healing process to regenerate new collagen and elastin. Unlike other skin revitalization treatments, these treatments can be performed on all skin types, anywhere on the body and anytime of the year.

Why RF Microneedling vs. Non-RF Microneedling?

Potenza delivers focused radiofrequency (RF) technology to heat your skin. Using RF technology will trigger your body’s natural response to create an increased level of collagen and elastin production, resulting in an enhanced skin revitalization treatment versus microneedling alone.

  • Avoiding direct sun exposure and using sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 30
  • Utilizing products containing growth factors, peptides, vitamin C, hyaluronic acid, and retinol to maintain your results after the initial healing process is complete

How Long Does It Take To See Results?

The elastin and collagen building typically takes place 4-6 weeks after treatment, with optimal results usually seen at 12 weeks after the last treatment. The number of passes and penetration to the skin will affect the results seen.e.
