Potenza RF Microneedling
NOTHING FROM A JAR CAN MAKE YOUR SKIN ACT LIKE THIS
WHAT IS POTENZA RF MICRONEEDLING
New Potenza RF Microneedling with Tiger Tip™ technology performs like no topical (or even filler) ever could, actually stimulating your body’s collagen and elastin levels to treat the advanced signs of aging. Skin looks younger, firmer.* And texture, tone, and clarity? Smoothed, brightened, and improved.
- Stimulates new collagen production to not only give you tighter, firmer-looking skin*, but younger-acting skin
- Targets blemishes for a smoother, more radiant complexion
- Provides faster healing time than traditional microneedling
WHAT TO EXPECT
The Potenza RF microneedling treatment uses ultrafine needles and heat to penetrate the top layer of the skin and trigger the body’s natural healing process to regenerate new collagen and elastin. The number of passes and penetration to the skin will vary by patient and affect the results seen. The elastin and collagen building typically takes place 4-6 weeks after treatment, with optimal results usually seen at 12 weeks after the last treatment.
HOW IT WORKS
Microneedle tip is placed on the epidermis.
Microneedles penetrate the tissue. There are numerous settings for depth of treatment.
Monopolar or bipolar RF energy is directly applied to the target area.
Collagen remodeling and elastin strengthening begin, with effects seen weeks post-treatment.
Frequently Asked Questions - ACCORDION
The Potenza RF microneedling treatment can treat a wide variety of skin concerns on the face and body. Potenza treats all skin types, anywhere on the body, any time of year.
The elastin and collagen building typically takes place 4-6 weeks after treatment, with optimal results usually seen at 12 weeks after the last treatment. The number of passes and penetration to the skin will affect the results seen.
Treatment times will vary by patient, area of the body being treated, penetration depth, and a number of passes, but most Potenza treatments are performed within 1 hour.
Potenza’s Tiger Tip needles eliminate the clinician’s need to essentially re-trace their steps, by providing them with the technology to perform both shallow and deep treatments at the same time, and tailor those treatments to individual skin types – meaning faster, more customized treatments.
Potenza delivers focused radiofrequency (RF) technology to heat the skin. Using RF technology will trigger the body’s natural response to create an increased level of collagen and elastin production, resulting in an enhanced skin revitalization treatment versus microneedling alone.
MICRONEEDLING IN COMBINATION WITH OTHER TREATMENTS
We also offer microneedling with custom-made serums. These serums are used in combination with microneedling to boost your results and expedite the healing process. PRP, PRF, and exosomes are all options we can use when creating a custom serum that will target your specific needs.
We also combine microneedling treatments with prescription-grade injectables to provide some amazing results for your skin. Hyaluronic acid is a great injectable to use with microneedling because it helps to plump and hydrate the skin. Microtox is another great option because it helps to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. Peptides are also a great choice because they help to boost collagen production.
VitC is a powerful antioxidant that can help to brighten the skin and protect against environmental damage. Filtox is also a great choice because it helps to detoxify the skin and remove impurities. All of these injectables are excellent choices for anyone looking to improve the appearance of their skin.
Sculptra is an injectable dermal filler used to correct facial volume loss in people who have aging skin. The active ingredient in Sculptra, poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), is a synthetic polymer that is biocompatible and biodegradable. Once injected, the PLLA scaffold provides support for new collagen growth, resulting in increased skin thickness and improved elasticity.
Sculptra injections are typically spaced two to four weeks apart, and the results can last two years or more. When Sculptra is injected into the skin at the same time as microneedling, it can help to further boost collagen production and extend the results of your treatment.
Microneedling With PRP
PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is a powerful concentration of healing cells that can help to stimulate collagen production and promote cell turnover. The process of getting PRP begins with a simple blood draw. The blood is then placed in a centrifuge, which separates the PRP from the blood.
Once the PRP has been isolated, it is then injected into the skin during the microneedling treatment. This delivery method enables the PRP to penetrate deep into the skin, providing maximum results. Benefits of PRP include improved skin texture, reduced wrinkles, fine lines, and enhanced skin elasticity.
Microneedling With PRF
PRF (platelet-rich fibrin) is derived from the patient’s own blood, and it contains many growth factors and cytokines that can promote healing. The process of getting PRP is similar to that of separating PRP from the blood, and it is performed at our state-of-the-art laboratory. Why do we use PRF in combination with microneedling? PRF has anti-inflammatory properties, the ability to improve healing time, and the ability to stimulate collagen production.
Microneedling With Exosomes
Exosomes are tiny vesicles that bud off of the plasma membrane of cells and carry with them a variety of molecules, including proteins, lipids, and microRNA. Exosomes play an important role in cell-to-cell communication by delivering these molecules to other cells. The exosomes derived from mesenchymal stem/stromal cells (MSCs) are especially beneficial because MSCs are known for their healing properties.
When you come for an appointment at our office, we will collect a sample of your bone marrow, which will be used to derive the exosomes. Once derived, the exosomes will be injected into the areas of your skin that are damaged or showing signs of aging. The exosomes will then help to repair the damage and improve the appearance of your skin.
WHY WE LOVE POTENZA RF MICRONEEDLING
The Potenza RF device is quickly becoming a favorite among aesthetic providers because of its unique Tiger Tip™ and Fusion Tip™ technology. The Tiger Tip needles make it so the aesthetician does not have to go over the same areas multiple times retracing their steps, which saves time and provides better results.
The Fusion Tip has a dual-air chamber design that enhances topical penetration and also allows for skin tightening through soft tissue coagulation with each penetration. These features, along with the device’s overall effectiveness, make it possible for us to offer our clients dramatic results.
