What is the Potenza™ Radiofrequency Microneedling Treatment
The Potenza microneedling treatment is a customizable solution that’s designed just for you. Whether you want to tighten and firm your skin, minimize the common signs of aging or reduce blemishes, you’ll unleash your skin’s potential after only a few treatments.
Empower Your Skin To Do What It Does Naturally
The Potenza microneedling treatment uses ultra fine needles and radiofrequency (RF) energy 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, Potenza can be performed on all skin types, anywhere on the body and any time of the year.
Potenza resurfaces the skin by creating evenly spaced microscopic injuries with an average depth of 0.5 to 4mm that are not visible to the naked eye. Your body responds to these injuries and initiates the healing process. Subsequently, your body begins to produce more collagen and elastin to heal these injuries.
Normally, your body produces these to maintain your skin and help it heal after an injury. However, the amount it produces regularly is not enough to prevent wrinkles or fade scars. Scar tissue that is already formed cannot be reversed by these compounds alone, as it has already done its job healing. Scars form because the skin is severely damaged. The Potenza RF microneedling procedure creates new controlled injuries and breaks up old scar tissue to allow the healing process to begin by producing collagen and elastin to heal these injuries properly. In RF microneedling, the needles also deliver radiofrequency energy straight to the dermis. This energy generates heat that causes skin tightening as the collagen fibers contract.
How To Begin This Process
The first step is contacting the Spa or scheduling a consult online. During your consult, our Nurse Practitioner will go over everything with you to make sure you are a good candidate. Next, we will schedule your appointment with one of our skin experts. Lastly, we ask that you come in with a clean face and the products you are currently using so we can ensure your home care is appropriate. If you need home care products we can provide them for you at a discounted price.
The micro channels can stay open for up to 48 hours, so it is crucial for you to use the appropriate products post procedure. You will most likely be red/flushed for up to 24 hours and feel a texture to the skin as the micro channels heal.
There will be microscopic scabs for about a week, so expect to see a bit of flaking skin for a day or two.
