Too loose, too blemished, too rough, too wrinkled—the list of issues we have with our skin goes on and on. Thankfully, there’s now a treatment with a list of benefits just as long.

Potenza RF Microneedling combines the power of radiofrequency (RF) and microneedling into a single, customizable treatment to tighten skin, treat signs of aging, reduce blemishes, and provide a radiant complexion. Unlike other skin revitalization treatments, Potenza treatments can be performed on all skin types, anywhere on the body, any time of the year.

Sounds pretty great, right? But… how exactly does it work? Glad you asked.

Microneedling is used to trigger the body’s natural healing process, while radiofrequency is used to improve complexion. When the two are combined, the cosmetic procedure regenerates new collagen and elastin, restoring your complexion with minimal downtime. Using ultrafine needles and heat at predetermined depths, the treatment is applied to deeper layers of skin, so it doesn’t interfere with the melanocytes within the skin. This means it won’t lead to hyperpigmentation in darker skin tones.

Here are the benefits you might experience from a Potenza treatment:

  • Tighter, firmer skin
  • Stimulated collagen production
  • Radiant complexion
  • Diminished acne or surgery scars (on face or body)
  • Reduced fine lines and wrinkles
  • Decreased cellulite
  • Reduced appearance of stretch marks
  • Shrinking of enlarged pores
  • Firmer upper eyelid skin
  • Smoother lines on upper lip skin

If this is all sounding too good to be true, well, it’s about to sound even better. The Potenza treatment also happens to be incredibly quick and convenient. Here’s how it works: first, we’ll apply a topical numbing cream to ensure your comfort. This will take about thirty minutes to activate. After that, the treatment itself will only take about twenty minutes. Following the treatment, your face may feel a little warm—similar to a sunburn. This should subside within a day. Then, depending on the type of treatment, you may see results in as little as twelve hours! The elastin and collagen building takes place between four and six weeks after treatment with optimal results usually seen at twelve weeks after the last treatment. Depending on your desired results, most providers will recommend three to four treatments each, six weeks apart.
