What is Potenza™
Potenza delivers focused radiofrequency (RF) technology to heat your skin. Using RF technology will trigger your body’s natural response to create an increased level of collagen and elastin production, resulting in an enhanced skin revitalization treatment versus microneedling alone.
- Microneedle tip is placed on the epidermis with gentle pressure.
- Microneedles penetrate the tissue.There are numerous settings for depth of treatment.
- Monopolar or bipolar energy is directly applied to the targeted area.
- Collagen remodeling and elastin strengthening begin.

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 on patient, area of the body being treated, penetration depth and number of passes, but most Potenza treatments are performed within 1 hour.
You can have multiple areas of treatment done at the same time, in one session. It is only suggested that you wait when wanting to re-treat a targeted area.
Potenza treatments are well-tolerated, with minimal reported side effects, such as pinpoint bleeding, swelling, redness, or irritation. As pain tolerance varies from patient to patient, numbing cream may be offered by your physician to make the treatment more tolerable.
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.
