If you are looking for skin that is firmer, smoother, brighter, and more toned, you may want to consider Potenza microneedling. This quick, non-surgical, and non-invasive treatment can help to bring your skin back to life – all without the use of harsh chemicals or surgery.
Potenza radiofrequency (RF) microneedling is a nonsurgical, in-office procedure that uses ultrafine needles and heat to promote the natural healing process to stimulate the body’s collagen and elastin production. The result is clearer, more youthful-looking skin that is smoother, firmer, and blemish-free. Read on to learn more about how this innovative treatment can benefit you.
How Does Treatment Work?
Treatment works by using microneedles to create tiny punctures in the skin. As the microneedles penetrate the tissue, radiofrequency energy is delivered deep into the target area of tissue. The combination of the controlled microneedle injury and RF energy work together to safely and effectively regenerate skin tissue by increasing the production of new collagen and elastin. Depth of treatment is individualized depending on the type of skin condition and the area of the body to be treated.
What Conditions Can Potenza Microneedling Treat?
Potenza RF microneedling can be safely performed anywhere on the body. It is most frequently used to treat the common signs of aging, as well as a wide variety of other skin concerns that affect the face and body, including:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Saggy skin
- Large pores
- Scarring, caused by acne, burns, or other trauma
- Stretch marks
- Sun damage
What Results Can I Expect?
Unlike traditional microneedling, RF microneedling provides a faster healing time. The collagen remodeling and elastin strengthening process begins soon after treatment, but it can take time to see the results. The number of passes and penetration depth also affect your results. On average, it takes 4-6 weeks for the effects to take place, with optimal results typically seen around 12 weeks after your final treatment.
How Many Treatments Are Required?
The number of treatments necessary varies by individual and depends on specific goals and current skin condition. Often, results can be noticed after only two treatments, but, in general, 3-5 treatments are typically required to see the desired results. To maintain results, follow-up treatments may be recommended once or twice a year after your initial set of treatments.
Is Everybody a Candidate For Treatment?
Potenza microneedling is considered a very safe and effective treatment for people of all skin types and pigments, and it can be performed at any time of year, with no downtime necessary. However, as with all medical procedures, not everyone is a suitable candidate for this type of treatment. Your provider will evaluate your individual requirements and suitability for treatment, prior to your procedure. They will also discuss the potential risks with you and explain pre- and post-operative care in order to get the most effective results from treatment.
As with all types of procedures, there can be potential side effects associated with RF microneedling, which are typically only temporary. These can include:
- Sensation of warmth or burning (during treatment)
