And the best part is that this treatment is safe for all skin tones, anywhere on the body, and at any time of the year.BOOK NOWBOOK CONSULTATION
Potenza RF Microneedling is a non-invasive medical treatment using ultra-fine needles and radio-frequency energy (RF) to create microscopic injuries to the skin in order to trigger your body’s natural healing process. Doing so kicks collagen and elastin production into high gear. Boosted collagen means plump, fresh skin while regenerating elastin leads to tighter skin that bounces back. This combination means smooth texture, shrunken pores, improved skin laxity, and replenished volume on top of even skin tone.
Potenza works deeper into the skin than microneedling alone because of radio-frequency energy. This energy heats the deeper layers of skin to begin collagen remodeling and elastin strengthening. Because the RF energy gets released into the deep layers, rather than the top layer of skin, it is safe for skin tones that typically would avoid heat.
Potenza RF Microneedling can be used anywhere on the face and body. However, it is most commonly used to treat damage and signs of aging on the face, neck, and chest. It is also a popular treatment for loose skin and stretch marks on the stomach, hips, thighs, and arms.
Every skin journey at The Esthetics Center begins with a consultation with one of our skilled nurses to discuss your goals and concerns. We will also assess your medical history during this consultation to ensure your safety. Before beginning any treatments, we will take before and after pictures to track your progress towards achieving your goals.
We begin treatment by cleansing the skin. We then apply the topical anesthetic cream to numb the area to ensure that you are completely comfortable during the procedure. Once the medication has set in, we wipe the skin clean and stick a small grounding pad to the top of your back. Then, your nurse will pass the Potenza handpiece across the treatment area. Depending on how many sites we treat, you will be out and back to your normal activities within two hours at most.
One of the highlights of this treatment is that it’s safe for all skin types, unlike many treatments. So anyone who is concerned with the following conditions makes a good candidate for Potenza RF Microneedling:
Radio frequency is not for people with metal implacable devices, such as pacemakers. It is also not suitable for pregnant women.
We take measures to make your Potenza experience as comfortable as possible. We start the treatment by applying topical numbing cream for about 30 minutes. Nitric Oxide (laughing gas) and ice are available throughout the microneedling process, should you want it. Most patients report mild to no discomfort during treatment, thanks to these measures.
Yes, Potenza is safe for most people, but there are a few exceptions. Radio frequency is not for people with metal implacable devices, such as pacemakers. Potenza is not recommended for these patients, but SkinPen Microneedling is a fantastic alternative that can get them amazing results similar to Potenza.
As with any medical or cosmetic procedure, the most important thing you can do is make sure you see a licensed and trained medical professional. Your appointment will include a discussion of your medical history, and the treatment site will be thoroughly examined as well. This not only ensures that you are getting the most effective treatment but that you understand the minor risks and complications that may pertain to your individual case.
Potenza RF Microneedling is so beloved because it is a powerful treatment without an intense recovery. After treatment, your skin may look and feel mildly sunburned—redness, tenderness, and a slight burning or tingling sensation. These post-treatment conditions fade within a few hours for most patients but can last for up to 2-4 days.
It is crucial that you follow proper sun protection protocol after treatment; this includes wearing SPF and avoiding direct sun exposure. Skin is healing and restoring itself after microneedling, so protecting the new skin from the sun’s damaging rays is essential. This both ensures the best possible results and protects those results. We will provide you with the necessary ointments to maximize your comfort and aid in the healing process. We also recommend that you stay well-hydrated during your recovery. We also ask that you refrain from using any at-home microneedling devices between treatments. It’s very easy to misuse them and damage your skin’s texture.
The benefits of Potenza RF Microneedling include faded discoloration, improved texture, tighter pores, boosted collagen production, and renewed elastin. This means you’ll enjoy tighter, brighter, smooth skin with a natural dewiness and plumpness. In addition, fine lines and wrinkles will soften or disappear entirely. Potenza RF Microneedling is like turning back the clock and undoing years of damage from age, the sun, and acne.
The benefit of treating the body with Potenza is tighter skin that was once lax from weight loss, aging, or pregnancy. You’ll also see stubborn stretch marks fade.
With each consecutive treatment to the face and body, you’ll see enhanced results. We recommend 3-6 treatments to achieve maximum rejuvenation, depending on your skin.
You will see results 4 to 6 weeks post-treatment. You will see further benefits 6 months after treatment. Collagen production is a gradual process that can’t be rushed, but the results are well worth the wait.
