What areas can we treat with Potenza™ RF Microneedling?


What is Potenza™
RF Microneedling?

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.

  1. Microneedle tip is placed on the epidermis with gentle pressure.
  2. Microneedles penetrate the tissue.There are numerous settings for depth of treatment.
  3. Monopolar or bipolar energy is directly applied to the targeted area.
  4. Collagen remodeling and elastin strengthening begin.

What to expect

The first step is your free consultation.

The first thing we’ll do in the consultation is talk about your goals to understand if Potenza microneedling treatments are right for you.

Before Treatment

Before your appointment, be sure the area to be treated is clean and clean-shaven for men; avoid alcohol 24 hours prior. A mild topical anesthetic will be applied to your desired treatment area before treatment begins. Once numb and comfortable, we will start moving the Potenza RF microneedling applicator along the skin carefully and thoroughly.

During Treatment

The treatment utilizes 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. Some may feel a mild sting, a warm sensation, and light pressure from the needles. Most treatments take less than 45 minutes to complete depending on the size of the treated area.

After Treatment

Immediately following your treatment, you may notice skin redness and sensitivity, similar to a sunburn. These side effects typically resolve within a day or two. Avoid excessive sun exposure, and do not apply makeup to your treated area for up to 48 hours following treatment. A series of medical-grade skincare products may be recommended to aid in your healing process.

Frequently Asked Questions

How many Potenza RF Microneedling treatments are needed?

You will likely need an initial series of three or five sessions one month apart for optimal results. During your initial consultation, our medical provider will discuss in-depth the perfect Potenza RF Microneedling protocol for your specific goals and needs.

How much does Potenza RF Microneedling cost?

The cost of your RF microneedling treatment will depend on the extent of treatment needed to achieve your desired results. To get a better idea of how much your RF microneedling treatment will cost, we encourage you to come in for a private consultation.

Am I a good candidate for Potenza RF Microneedling?

If you’re looking for minimally invasive treatment options to reduce your hyperpigmentation or uneven skin texture while tightening your lax skin, RF microneedling may be right for you. Ideal candidates for RF microneedling are in general good health and have realistic expectations of their results. However, if you’re unsure whether RF microneedling is right for you, we encourage you to come in for a private consultation with one of our LuminaSkin medical aesthetic experts. We’ll be happy to sit down with you, listen to your concerns, evaluate your skin, and develop a personalized treatment plan to help you achieve your ultimate aesthetic goals.

How do I prepare for a Potenza RF Microneedling treatment?
  • Be sure the area being treated is clean and clean-shaven for men
  • Avoid alcohol 24 hours prior
  • Avoid hot water baths or showers
  • Post-treatment, please wear sunblock from SPF 30+, as well as any post-treatment skincare recommended by LuminaSkin medical provider
  • Use ice packs every two hours, IF necessary for 15-20 minutes at a time for the first 24 hours post-treatment if there is any swelling and discomfort
  • Do not scratch or scrub the treated area
  • Resume normal activities and makeup-use after 24 hours
  • Please be gentle with the treated area
When will I see results from treatment?

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. 

How long is the treatment?

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.

Can I treat multiple areas at once?

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.

What are the side effects of treatment?

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. 

What is Tiger Tip Technology?

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.
