The new standard in RF microneedling, the Potenza device’s four modes offer more customized microneedling treatments for patients than ever before, which allows practitioners to deliver both shallow and deep treatments on a single system.
Unlike other treatments on the market, Potenza treatments can be performed on all skin types, anywhere on the body, and any time of year.
After makeup removal and cleansing of the skin, a topical numbing cream is applied 30 minutes prior to the treatment. During treatment, a microneedle tip is placed on the outer layer of the skin. The microneedles penetrate the tissue as the monopolar or bipolar radio frequency energy is directly applied to the target treatment area. This is where the body’s natural repair process is triggered, resulting in the building of new collagen and elastin over the next 4-6 weeks after treatment.
The number of treatments needed will depend on patient preference and their desired results. Providers will typically recommend having a series of three to four treatments, six weeks apart for best results.
Most patients say the discomfort level for this treatment is minimal and tolerable, but everyone’s discomfort threshold is different. Once numb, your skin may feel “spicy” with a slight stinging or mild burning sensation and light pressure during treatment. Some patients may also experience small pinpoint bleeding during treatment, which is normal. If you’re a sensitive skin type, talk to your provider who can then either apply more numbing cream or extend the numbing cream process a bit longer before your treatment.
