Potenza™ is an FDA-cleared RF microneedling, handheld device that penetrates the dermis’ outermost layers and creates small wounds in the skin to allow topical products to penetrate deep into the dermis. In addition, the Potenza™ Radio Frequency (RF) microneedling system adds radiofrequency energy to the microneedling procedure.
RF energy is delivered through tiny needles, and the energy is pushed deep into the dermis. This energy advances skin tightening by soft-tissue coagulation. In addition, RF energy heats the underlying layers and triggers collagen and elastin production. Potenza delivers RF energy so deeply that results are produced quicker and more dramatically.
Aere Aesthetics uses the Fusion tip on the microneedling device. This tip provides maximum results and enhanced topical penetration. The Fusion tip breaks through your skin barrier to promote the penetration of topicals by up to 67%.
The Potenza device can be combined with neurotoxins and fillers with hyaluronic acid. In addition, nutrients can be topically applied to the skin after the microneedling. The microneedling allows for the nutrients to penetrate deep into the skin layers.
The Potenza RF Microneedling device treats:
- Poor skin texture and visible scars,
- Decreases fine lines and wrinkles,
- Solves pigmentation issues,
- Provides skin tightening.
To keep youcomfortable, your provider may apply a topical anesthetic. Once you are numb and comfortable, the handheld device is held against your skin, and the radiofrequency energy and needles penetrate the skin. There might be a stinging or burning sensation, and light pressure as the needles are inserted into your skin.
Potenza treatments take about 45 minutes, and you may need a series of three or four treatments, six weeks apart, for optimal results. About two weeks after your first treatment, you should see smoother and more glowing skin. However, it may take 2-6 months to see the final results because your body needs time to begin making collagen and elastin after the treatment.
There is little downtime after the treatment, and you can go about your daily activities when you walk out the clinic door. The treatment area may be slightly red, and some swelling may be seen. These symptoms do pass within a day or so.
