Is this treatment right for me?
The Potenza RF microneedling treatment can treat a wide variety of skin concerns on the face and body. Potenza treats all skin types, anywhere on the body, anytime of year.
When will I see results?
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.
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.
Why RF microneedling vs. non-RF microneedling?
Why RF microneedling vs. non-RF microneedling?
What to expect after my Potenza RF microneedling treatment?
The Potenza RF microneedling treatment uses 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. The number of passes and penetration to the skin will vary by patient and affect the results seen, since everyone’s skin is different. The elastin and collagen building typically takes place 4-6 weeks after treatment. In order to see optimal results, our patients have to wait 12 weeks.
What do I care for my skin after the treatment?
After the microneedling procedure, our doctors and medical aestheticians will give you specific directions on what to do next. You must pay close attention to the instructions because they may be tailored to your particular medical history or skin type.
After undergoing Potenza RF microneedling, you should make it a routine to apply to protect your skin from the sun’s rays, especially the treated area, for the first two weeks. Make it a tradition to put on sunscreen every time you go outside. Since you will be more susceptible to sun damage than usual in the first week after your microneedling procedure, you should avoid spending extended time in the sun.
Use Cleansers And Moisturizers
In the two to three days following your Potenza RF microneedling treatment, you should have your dermatologist test any cleansers, toners, or scrubs you intend to use to ensure that the ingredients won’t make the side effects worse.
It is possible to use hyaluronic acid after having Potenza RF microneedling done. In some instances, it is even recommended to help stimulate collagen production after the procedure.
After having Potenza RF microneedling done to your face, if your face feels dry, you can use coconut oil as an emollient to help lock in moisture and hydrate your face. This is generally safe to do. Skincare products that have been diluted and do not contain alcohol can also be used to cleanse dry skin. It is in your best welfare to stick to using gentle and natural ingredients to help your skin recover efficiently.
What to avoid after the treatment?
Avoid Infection Whenever Possible
To prevent infection, be sure to wash your hands exhaustively before touching your face. Within the first twenty-four hours after receiving Potenza RF microneedling, you should avoid applying makeup, particularly with a makeup brush used previously.
In addition, if you want to keep your skin in good condition, you should steer clear of swimming pools, saunas, and other environments that could cause you to sweat heavily, such as strenuous workouts at the gym. You may be able to renew these activities after 72 hours have passed.
Avoid Retinols, Exfoliants, And Other Vitamin C Products
Steer clear of any product marketed as a skincare solution containing strong chemicals designed to exfoliate. You should steer clear of anything that has a scent, as well as glycolic acid and alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs).
After having Potenza RF microneedling done, you should wait at least 48 hours before applying retinol or vitamin C serum to the treated area.
Use beauty products that contain potent anti-aging ingredients. You may find that after two full days, the best course of action is not to resume your regular beauty routine immediately but rather to ease into it gradually by reintroducing individual products.
What are the side effects?
Potenza RF microneedling is typically regarded as having a low risk to patients. Sometimes the symptoms of the side effects will worsen to the point where they require medical attention.
The following are examples of symptoms to watch out for:
- nausea, itching, and yellow or green discharge
Infections can be caused by microneedling; however, this complication is typically caused by using instruments on the skin that have not been adequately sterilized. It’s also possible to have an allergic reaction to the needles used for microneedling.
If you have any of these symptoms, contact a doctor immediately.
