What do I need to know about Potenza™ RF Microneedling?
Microneedling, also known as dermarolling, has a cult following among skincare enthusiasts for tackling common skin issues like acne scars and fine lines. But let’s talk about the next level in skin rejuvenation: radiofrequency (RF) microneedling. This innovative treatment combines tiny needles with radiofrequency energy to take your skin’s natural healing ability to new heights (re: increased collagen and elastin production for smoother, more radiant skin). Want to learn how RF microneedling can take your SkinFitness™ goals to the next level? Read on to discover our answers to the top most commonly asked questions about this cosmetic treatment.
1. How does RF microneedling work?
RF microneedling fuses traditional cold microneedling with radiofrequency energy to rejuvenate the skin at the deeper layers while protecting the top outer layer of the skin. The tiny needles increase natural collagen and elastin production through “micro-injuries.” At the same time, RF energy is delivered to the upper and lower dermis, promoting skin tightening and collagen repair. The latest RF microneedling technology, Potenza™ RF Microneedling, allows treatments to be tailored and individualized for your specific needs — all skin types and most parts of the body can be safely and effectively treated. The result? Smoother, firmer, and more radiant skin.
2. What are the benefits of RF microneedling treatments?
RF microneedling treatments can help your skin look fresher, smoother, and more radiant. Some of the benefits (and there are many!) include that it’s minimally invasive, tightens skin, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improves skin texture, firmness, and elasticity, and is suitable for all skin types.
3. Which skin concerns does RF microneedling treat?
RF microneedling is like the Swiss Amy knife of cosmetic treatments — it treats various skin issues, like uneven skin texture, fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, sun damage, and more. Plus, it’s safe and effective on all skin types. And Potenza™ RF Microneedling, in particular, can treat both superficial and deeper skin issues with its advanced technology.
4. What is an RF microneedling treatment like?
Our clinicians give patients numbing cream before their RF microneedling treatment so they only feel mild to moderate discomfort. This is often described as a prickling sensation with increased heat. The entire treatment takes between 30 and 90 minutes to complete, depending on the area being treated.
5. Are there any side effects?
All cosmetic treatments come with side effects. You may experience some redness and swelling right after a Potenza™ RF microneedling treatment, but this usually resolves within a few days or up to a few weeks. Click here for a full list of potential side effects.
6. How many RF microneedling treatments do I need?
It all depends on your SkinFitness™ goals! While you may notice some initial results after just one treatment, we recommend three to six treatments spaced four to six weeks apart to achieve optimal results.
7. What kind of results can I expect?
Results keep improving with each treatment. While you may notice some initial results in the four to six weeks after treatment, more noticeable effects appear over three to six months as your skin goes through three different phases of collagen remodeling. Pretty cool, huh?
