Radiofrequency Microneedling in Norwalk, CT
Potenza™ RF Microneedling
Our skin undergoes significant changes as we age and deal with external damage, such as that from the sun, environmental factors, and unhealthy lifestyle habits. A common concern for many people is the loss of skin elasticity and thickness, which causes the skin to sag and look worn. Radiofrequency microneedling is an effective skin tightening technique that treats various aging concerns on the face, neck, hands, and body.
Dr. Rosen offers the Potenza™ RF microneedling device for patients looking to tighten their skin and improve the appearance of blemishes.
Am I a Candidate for Radiofrequency Microneedling?
If you are concerned about uneven skin tone/texture, wrinkles, fine lines, large pores, general facial skin laxity, or stretch marks, you might be a good candidate for radiofrequency microneedling. Mild to moderate skin concerns are best suited for this procedure.
This minimally invasive technology combines radiofrequency and microneedling to heat and tighten tissues and revitalize the skin. The treatment can be performed on all skin types, each with an individualized regimen.
Ideal candidates should be in good health and have realistic expectations.
How Is Radiofrequency Microneedling With Potenza™ Performed?
During your Potenza™ RF microneedling treatment, ultrafine needles penetrate the skin (the Potenza™ device allows for multiple penetration depths), and the area is heated with radiofrequency energy. This process triggers a natural healing response that encourages collagen and elastin production, resulting in tighter-looking, more radiant skin.
Because the Potenza™ treatment is a combination of microneedling and radiofrequency tightening, monopolar or bipolar radiofrequency energy waves are delivered deep into the dermis layer of skin to initiate the regeneration of elastin cells. Radiofrequency energy targets the underlying layers of the skin, promoting skin tightening and helping to reverse the effects of aging and acne scarring.
Potenza™ produces faster and better results than traditional microneedling techniques. The procedure is performed under topical numbing and takes about one hour.
The required number of treatments will vary from individual to individual, depending on the patient’s skin concerns and their body’s response to the treatment. Most patients will achieve optimal results after two to four treatment sessions.
What Is My Potenza™ RF Microneedling Recovery Like?
Following treatment, there is some possibility of discomfort, with some patients reporting mild pinpoint bleeding and slight bruising. This should subside within 24 hours.
Being minimally invasive, there is little to no downtime, and you can resume your daily activities immediately after treatment. Patients are advised to use a generous amount of sunscreen to protect the skin from sun exposure.
What Results Can I Expect From Potenza™ Radiofrequency Microneedling?
The results of your radiofrequency microneedling will be noticeable a few days following treatment, but significant changes will begin to appear gradually over six months as your body produces collagen and elastin proteins.
