Microneedling has been around for a while, and its applications have made it a great tool for skin care. Still, with the appearance of Potenza™, microneedling has become even better. Beautiful skin can become even more beautiful, and this can be done with just a simple tool.

But what exactly is Potenza™ microneedling, and what benefits can you enjoy from it? How is it any better than regular microneedling? We have all the answers for you because, in this blog, we will introduce you to Potenza™ microneedling, and why it’s one of the best tools in the world of dermatology.

What Is Potenza™ Microneedling?

Potenza™ microneedling is a non-surgical technique that uses radiofrequency (RF) microneedling to improve the skin. Through ultra-fine needles that deliver RF waves, it heats the upper skin layer, triggering your body’s natural healing process. This will stimulate your body’s ability to produce elastin and collagen.

Potenza™ microneedling can be used on various areas of your body, such as the face, abdomen, elbow, neck, décolletage, and more. Its versatility is given by the different types of needles you may use throughout the procedure. 

What Does Potenza™ Microneedling Treat?

This revitalizing microneedling treatment can be used to treat or minimize various conditions caused by the absence of collagen and elastin, including:

  • Sagging or loose skin
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Melasma, sun damage, and uneven skin tone
  • Any type of scar tissue
  • Stretch marks
  • Skin laxity problems
  • Persistent inflammation (i.e., acne and associated scars)

Thanks to the radiofrequency addition, Potenza™ will work much better for these conditions compared to microneedling alone. Depending on the condition of your skin, you may need more than one treatment and the result will be younger-looking skin with a tighter appearance as well as more improved skin texture.

Customizing Potenza™ Microneedling

Perhaps the main benefit of the Potenza™ microneedling tool is that it does not have just one action for everything. Depending on your needs, we can customize its coverage and efficiency by using a different tip. We can choose between:

  • Semi-Insulated Tips: They are great for wider coverage with just one needle insertion and are perfect for blemishes that are not as deeply rooted in the skin. 
  • Insulated Tips: They are recommended for deeper treatments in the targeted areas. They are used when you want to reach deeper into the skin.

Each needle may have different forms, so you should talk with Dr. Jeff Birchall and the aesthetic specialists at Dermacare to help decide which tip works best for your needs.

Benefits of the Potenza™ Treatment

If we establish that you’re a good candidate for Potenza™ RF microneedling, you can enjoy the following benefits after the treatment: 

  • Low recovery time, during which you may not need to interrupt your daily activities
  • Quick results, visible within a few days
  • The procedure can address a variety of skin conditions, from cellulite to wrinkles
  • Adaptable treatment for every patient’s needs
  • Long-lasting results compared to other beauty treatments
  • Short treatment sessions that last 30 minutes at most

Keep in mind that these benefits vary from one person to another, so you should talk with Dr. Birchall first to see what results you may expect.

How Long Does RF Microneedling Last?

The effects of RF microneedling provided by the Potenza™ laser may last for up to 12 months, but this will depend on the type of condition that you treat and the skincare routine you follow.

Keep in mind that RF microneedling is not considered a permanent solution and the results may fade over time, but there are some exceptions. For instance, if you are treating acne scars, their chances of returning are very slim unless new lesions are produced.

Dr. Jeff Birchall recommends you book a maintenance session once every one to two years to preserve your results. This applies even more to women and men over the age of 30 who have a lower ability to produce collagen.

Is Potenza™ Right for You?

Potenza™ microneedling can be a great tool to significantly improve the condition of your skin, no matter if you’re dealing with melasma, wrinkles, or scar tissue and the results are long-lasting. To find out if you’re a good candidate for Potenza™, schedule an initial consultation at one of our offices and Dr. Jeff Birchall will establish the right treatment plan for you.
