Potenza RF Microneedling is an innovative and beneficial treatment for a variety of different skin concerns. By combining radiofrequency and microneedling, the Potenza RF Microneedling allows us to achieve an array of different benefits. Potenza RF Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure which encourages controlled skin injury which in turn stimulates the growth of newer and healthier skin. 

Potenza RF Microneedling is praised due to its combination of both microneedling and radiofrequency. Achieving great results with the microneedling and radiofrequency combined, allows a much deeper penetration of the skin leading to an increased production of collagen in the skin. As a type of collagen induction therapy, Potenza RF Microneedling therefore stimulates collagen production leading to reduced inflammation in the treated area while also healing the skin from the inside.  Collagen encourages a smoother and firmer appearance to the skin, leading to a more refreshed complexion. In those individuals suffering with acne, the micro-punctures delivered to the skin during treatment work to break down old scar tissue while stimulating the production of collagen and elastin.

Potenza RF Microneedling can be used to combat a variety of different skin concerns including, but not limited to, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, reducing the appearance of acne scars and other scars on the skin, tightening and firming the skin. Due to the nature of the treatment, there is minimal downtime following the procedure and you should be able to continue with your day post treatment, however you may notice some warmth and redness on the treated area immediately following your treatment.

Potenza RF Microneedling is a particularly popular as a result of its flexibility. The treatment can be used on all skin types, anywhere on the body and for an extremely wide variety of skin concerns. Popular areas include the full face, forehead, cheeks and decolletage however the treatment is effective all over the body.  

At Neo Health, we offer a variety of different options for Potenza. Extra minor Potenza treatment describes treatment solely on the eye area to tighten the skin surrounding the eyes. Minor Potenza describes treatment is solely on the forehead or cheeks which may be done to tighten skin, treat scarring and to boost radiance. Intermediate Potenza describes treatment to the full face which can be done for a variety of reasons such as firming, reducing scarring and reducing wrinkles. Finally major Potenza describes the full face & neck or body areas.

Potenza RF Microneedling has an extensive array of benefits to the skin and is an effective treatment for a huge variety of skin concerns. Potenza RF Microneedling is an effective treatment to smooth fine lines and wrinkles, tighten the skin, treat different types of scarring, shrink pores, reduce the appearance of stretch marks and encourage a more radiant complexion, amongst many others benefits. In comparison to many other treatments available to combat these skin concerns, Potenza RF Microneedling is minimally invasive and does not require much downtime at all, therefore providing a quick and effective treatment for a variety of different conditions.

During the Potenza RF Microneedling procedure, the tip is placed on the skins surface. These microneedles then penetrate the tissue of the skin to the desired depth. As these needles enter the skin, they simultaneously release radiofrequency into the skin leading to the stimulation of collagen and elastin production.

The amount of Potenza RF Microneedling treatments required is different for each patient and their individual concern. For most patients, three treatments are required to achieve the best results over an extended period of time. However, some people will see better results much faster than others and may therefore require fewer sessions. On the other hand, some patients may require more than three treatments to achieve their desired results from the treatment and have regular treatments as part of their skin maintenance regime.  

Following Potenza RF Microneedling, your skin is likely to remain slightly red and or have a little swelling immediately post treatment. This reduces over a few hours after your treatment but really depends on your skin type on how long or short this takes. During the few days post treatment, it is important to apply good moisturisation. A healing balm will be applied at your appointment to aid the healing process of the skin and achieve the best results. This balm, along with other products, are available to purchase during your visit; the team will be available to advise you and answer any questions you have.

During the Potenza RF Microneedling procedure, a topical anaesthetic will be applied to the area requiring treatment. Therefore, during treatment there is minimal pain or discomfort. Following treatment, the treated area may feel warm, and there will be some redness. This can be slightly tender initially however this should only last a short time after your treatment – no longer than a few hours post treatment.

The actual Potenza RF Microneedling procedure is very quick. It depends on how large the treated area is as to how long the total procedure will take. Prior to the actual Potenza RF Microneedling, a topical anaesthetic will be applied for 30 minutes to 1 hour to allow it to numb the skin. Then the actual Potenza treatment will commence. 

Results from Potenza RF Microneedling can last differently for each patient and your individual skin type. Some people choose to have singular treatments while others opt for courses of treatment which will lead to results lasting longer. Also, it depends which concern Potenza is being used to treat. For example, those using Potenza to treat the signs of ageing may find their results don’t last very long as the skin continues to naturally age.  

The cost of Potenza RF Microneedling is different depending on the size of the area treated and the amount of sessions you book. A full price list can be found here.

"Amazing! I’ve had such a great experience from the start to the finish. I was a little bit nervous about the pain when it came to the Potenza treatment however everything was so well explained to me that I was put at ease and the numbing cream definitely helped. Nurse Jo is definitely an expert in her field!!! I can’t wait for the results!"

"Nurse Jo is absolutely amazing. She is very caring and takes a lot of pride in her work. I felt very comfortable with her as she explained the best treatments and products for me. I had Potenza, micro-needling with meso, and hydrafacials, and I saw immediate improvements to my skin. The results were incredible, and I couldn't be happier. She is one of London’s best… if not the best. Highly recommended."
