ABOUT POTENZA RF MICRONEEDLING
Potenza uses ultra-fine needles and FDA-approved radio frequency (RF) to penetrate the skin’s most outer layers, triggering the skin’s natural repair process. This results in the regeneration of new collagen and elastin which not only gives you tighter, firmer-looking skin but, younger acting skin as well! Your skin becomes smoother and more radiant. Potenza has minimum downtime and a faster healing process than traditional microneedling.
Potenza is a quick and cost-effective alternative to laser treatments. It is an inexpensive way to treat signs of aging without the downtime of associated with lasers.
WHY RF MICRONEEDLING VS. NON-RF MICRONEEDLING?
Potenza delivers focused radiofrequency (RF) technology to heat your skin. Using RF technology will trigger your body’s natural response to create an increased level of collagen and elastin production, resulting in an enhanced skin revitalization treatment versus microneedling alone.
How does Potenza work?
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.
During treatment, a microneedle tip is placed on the outer layer of the skin.
The microneedles penetrate the tissue. We have numerous settings for this part of the treatment depending on our goals for your skin.
The radio frequency energy is directly applied to the target treatment area. We can use monopolar or bipolar RF energy depending on our treatment goals.
The number of passes and penetration to the skin will vary by patient. The body’s natural repair process is triggered leading to new building of collagen and elastin over the next 4-6 weeks, with optimal results usually seen at 12 weeks after the last treatment.
Before & After
Does Potenza hurt?
The area being treated is numbed with a topical numbing cream for at least 15-20 minutes prior to treatment. Once the treatment begins, you can feel a stinging or mild burning sensation that is usually described as “spicy.” You will feel some pressure from the tip as it is pressed against your skin. Most patients feel that any discomfort with Potenza is minimal and very tolerable.
Since everyone’s pain threshold is different, it is important to communicate any discomfort to the treating provider. We can apply more numbing cream, leave the numbing cream on longer for your next treatment, or we offer NitroNox*, similar to the nitrous oxide you receive in the dentist office, to help relax you.
*NitroNox is provided as an additional charge to your treatment plan.
What can I expect?

I’ve been going to Britney for almost 2 years. Her and her staff are great and very easy to talk to. I love that there’s barely ever a wait time as our time is important just as theirs is, you don’t find that too often at Drs. I’ve recommended...
I cannot express how amazing & knowledgeable Britney is. I was so impressed with my results that I could not wait to share them with everyone! Britney’s treatment is more than just a “skin care treatment,” it is a self-esteem boosting power punch! She makes you feel so comfortable....
I came to JHWC looking for something to help with my fine lines and wrinkles. I did four TempSure Envi treatments and I loved each one! I did treatments on my lunch hour and no one knew I had anything done while I was gone!
