What is Potenza?
The Potenza RF microneedling treatment uses ultrafine needles and radiofrequency (RF) energy to penetrate the top layer of the skin, triggering the body’s natural healing process to regenerate new collagen and elastin. Unlike some other skin revitalization treatments, Potenza treatments can be performed on all skin types, anywhere on the body and anytime of the year.
Designed to help tighten and firm skin, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, improve skin texture, shrink pores and diminish scars on both the face and other parts of the body, this advanced treatment results in younger looking skin.
The results are a smoother, more radiant complexion with a fast-healing process and minimal downtime. You’ll get more dramatic, visible, deeper and faster results than with traditional microneedling treatments alone.
- Stimulates new collagen production to not only give you tighter, firmer-looking skin, but younger-acting skin
- Targets blemishes for a smoother, more radiant complexion
- Provides faster healing time than traditional microneedling
How does this treatment feel?
Most clients are able to tolerate the Potenza, and topical numbing will be provided to all patients prior to treatment.
Depending on the area being treated, clients can expect to feel a varying degree of pressure and heat.
How many treatments will you need?
We always recommend booking an in-person consultation with a Complete Laserprofessional so they may fully analyze your concerns and make treatment recommendations.
Clients can see improvement in their concerns from their very first Potenza treatment, and a baseline treatment series of 3 is the most recommended course. Each client will have their own unique treatment protocol based on their concerns.
Treatment times may vary; however, you can expect to spend 60-90 minutes in clinic depending on your numbing preferences. This includes prep, aftercare and the treatment itself. Potenza treatments are well tolerated. As pain tolerance varies from patient to patient, numbing cream is offered to make the treatment more tolerable.
As with all treatments at B Medical Spa, you will have an in-depth consultation before the treatment begins. Every step of the way will be explained, and aftercare is provided for the days following 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.
