The Benefits of Potenza™ RF Microneedling

Potenza RF Microneedling is a revolution in microneedling treatments, and provides a fully customizable skin rejuvenation treatment for all skin types, any time of the year, and anywhere on your face or body. Potenza RF Microneedling can help treat the following conditions and concerns on the face and body:

  • Common signs of aging (lines, wrinkles, lost volume)
  • Loose, crepey skin
  • Loss of skin laxity and collagen
  • Stretch marks
  • Vascularity & redness
  • Active acne & acne scarring
  • Overall skin rejuvenation & improvement of texture

The primary difference between Potenza RF Microneedling, and traditional microneedling is the addition of focused radiofrequency technology to heat your skin deep within the dermis layer. This coagulation stimulates your body’s natural healing response, creating an increased level of collagen and elastin production. This is what results in an enhanced skin revitalization treatment, leaving your skin bright, tight, and blemish-free.

Our Process

Our unique comprehensive approach focuses on 360º treatment plans bespoke to no one else but you. We aim to help you achieve the best version of yourself—no matter where your starting point is.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is a candidate for Potenza RF microneedling?

The beauty of Potenza RF microneedling is that it is specifically designed to be used on all skin types, at any time of the year, and on any part of the face or body. This makes most people a candidate for Potenza RF microneedling. Those wanting to achieve the following results are likely candidates for Potenza RF microneedling:

  • Combat the signs of aging
  • Clearer, smoother skin texture and complexion
  • Tighter and firmer skin
  • Reduction of scarring, such as acne scars and stretch marks

As with all of our skin treatments at 8 West Clinic, it is always best to schedule a complimentary skin consultation to determine your ideal candidacy. Our medical aestheticians have decades of experience with different skin conditions and concerns, and will be able to design a bespoke treatment plan to deliver the best results possible.

How does Potenza RF microneedling work?

The beauty of this revolutionary treatment is how it treats the deeper layers of the skin using monopolar or bipolar energy in tandem with controlled resurfacing to the upper layers, simultaneously. By using these ultrafine needles to create controlled damage to your dermis, the micro-channels trigger the natural healing response in your skin to re-form smoother, healthier skin. The addition of radiofrequency is what sends heat deeper into the dermis, which is where collagen and elastin is produced. Controlled coagulation (heat) is the best way to stimulate large amounts of elastin and collagen, rebuilding and re-tightening the skin.

Bipolar Vs. Monopolar:

The addition of monopolar and bipolar energy wavelengths is what makes this treatment so customizable, and available to those with darker skin types.

  • Bipolar wavelengths are a more superficial, wider delivery of energy and is great for skin types 1-3 (post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation can be a risk for darker skin types).
  • Monopolar wavelengths are deeper, more focused delivery of energy, which allows for treatment of all skin types. Most skin treatment machines only offer the bipolar wavelength.

Potenza can be adjusted to tailor to any skin type & any level of aggressiveness.

How is Potenza RF microneedling performed?

Potenza RF microneedling is a non-invasive treatment that can be performed on any part of the face or body that takes only about 30 minutes. The treatment is pain-minimal, but you will have the option for a topical numbing ointment if you would prefer, which takes about 20-30 minutes to take effect prior to treatment.

The treatment has you in a reclined and relaxed position, and the Potenza RF microneedling pen is gently stamped over your treatment area. Much like traditional microneedling, Potenza uses ultra fine needles that rapidly move to penetrate into the dermis to create controlled damage. Where this treatment differs from traditional microneedling is that as this happens, the machine also uses radiofrequency to deliver either a monopolar or bipolar energy wavelength, adding heat deeper into the skin, stimulating significant collagen and elastin production.

What should I expect with Potenza RF microneedling?

Treatment times may vary, however most treatments can be performed in 30-45 minutes or less. Potenza treatments are well-tolerated, with minimal post-treatment side effects, such as a mild to moderate burning sensation, mild pink flushed skin, potential swelling, possible light pinpoint bleeding, and temporary tingling.

Next Day: Mild pink flushed skin – easily covered with mineral makeup, swelling can last 24-48 hours.

3rd Day: Transitions to a dry texture for approximately 5 days (other people generally won’t even notice it!)

Results: Typically, you will see an overall brightness of the skin 1 week post-treatment, but the true magic of Potenza’s long-lasting results will be seen anywhere from 2-5 months after treatment. This is because it takes up to this long for collagen and elastin to rebuild and show on the more superficial layers of the skin.

Potenza™ RF Microneedling

I had my microneedling done by Sonya. It was my first ever experience and it was beyond my expectation. She knows very well what she’s doing and make sure that i’m also doing good throughout my treatment. She’s was so kind and loving. I would 100% recommend this place and particularly recommend her.

Potenza™ RF Microneedling

This clinic is very professionally run and the services are top notch. I first saw Suzanne Power to discuss my anti-aging options. I chose microneedling and was pleasantly surprised that my skin recovered so fast - by the third day it was fine, just a bit of dryness. I highly recommend the clinic.

Catherine S.
Potenza™ RF Microneedling

I want to share my fabulous experience at 8 West Clinic. My first 2 treatments involved Potenza, RF micro needling and my results were fantastic. I felt comfortable, totally informed and involved in my treatment regime. Sonya’s professionalism, warm demeanour and beautiful smile keep me coming back.
