How does Radio Frequency Microneedling work?
Radio Frequency Microneedling with the Potenza can help to address the most common aesthetic concerns because of the added benefit of advanced Radio Frequency Microneedling technology.
Potenza delivers thermal energy to deeper tissue, causing tissue contraction. The energy/heat also triggers the body to produce collagen and elastin, resulting in skin tightening through soft-tissue coagulation.
The Potenza RF microneedling system adds the element of radio frequency energy to the mechanical microneedling procedure. The RF energy is delivered via small needles. In addition to the benefits seen with the micro-injury provided by the microneedles, RF microneedling also delivers RF energy deep into the dermis, further enhancing skin tightening through soft-tissue coagulation. The RF energy heats the underlying layers, causing constriction and tightening of the skin through soft-tissue coagulation, as well as causing the stimulation of collagen and elastin production. Because the RF energy is delivered so deeply, it can produce faster, more dramatic results.
By stimulating your own collagen and elastin synthesis, Potenza helps address common skin concerns such as acne lesions, acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, dullness, uneven skin tone, tech neck, loss of elasticity
To achieve best results, we recommend 3-4 treatment 2-4 weeks apart.
What to expect :
To prepare for your treatment,
Keep hydrated by drinking water (at least eight cups daily) or hydrating fluids to improve treatment outcomes, Avoid drinking alcohol for 24 hours in advance of treatment, For seven days prior to treatment, at the physician’s discretion, avoid therapies that may cause erythema (redness) or irritation, such as retinols or products containing isotretinoin or any exfoliating acids, Shave visible hair from the treatment area (Male beards should be shaved on the day of treatment.)
On day of treatment, your skin will be cleansed and prepped to provide a clean treatment area. A topical anesthetic will be applied to minimized any discomfort. Once the anesthetic has had time to work, the treatment will be started. The treatment time is usually 30minutes.
Minimal downtime with mild erythema/redness that resolved within a few hours to 24 hours. You can be back to work and life the same day.
Post treatment, keep skin clean using a gentle cleanser, avoid using retinol containing products, wear sunscreen daily. There is minimal downtime and most patients are able to return to daily activities within a few hours.
