About Radio Frequency Microneedling
What is Potenza™?
PotenzaTM (Cynosure, Massachusetts, USA) is a Radiofrequency Microneedling device that has been approved by the US FDA (Food and Drug Administration).
PotenzaTM uses insulated gold microneedles that emit radiofrequency energy to promote collagen remodelling and synthesis in the skin.
How Does Potenza™ work?
PotenzaTM Microneedling treatment uses ultrafine needles and radiofrequency (RF) radiation to penetrate the top layer of the skin, triggering the body’s natural healing mechanism to regenerate new collagen and elastin. Unlike other skin rejuvenation procedures, PotenzaTM Microneedling treatment can be used on any skin type, anywhere on the body, and at any time of year.
This treatment can address the following concerns:
Skin rejuvenation (fine lines, sagging skin, dull skin)
Abdominal stretch marks
Microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) is not new and has been used for years, with several devices on the market. We put various alternative RF Microneedling systems to the test on our own faces before settling on the PotenzaTM system for the following reasons:
Highly customized to the patient with 4 treatment modes (monopolar 1MHz, monopolar 2MHz, bipolar 1MHz, bipolar 2MHz), 10 needle tip choices
Unique fusion tip with Cushion Plus technology that creates a vacuum driving topical collagen stimulating serums applied during the treatment deeper into the skin for better results
Most comfortable in our own opinion, after extensive field testing, is that this system was the least painful (most of our patients could not feel the microneedles)
