As one of the leading medical spas in the area, we believe all patients deserve the skin they desire, making this treatment the perfect solution for many aesthetic needs. Below, we’ve included more information about the treatment, but if you’d like to schedule a consultation, please contact us today.
Potenza RF Microneedling is an FDA-approved skin treatment that uses a handheld radio frequency micro-needling device. The ultra-fine needles work in combination with radio frequency energy to penetrate the skin’s outermost layers, triggering the skin’s natural repair process. While the healing process is triggered, new collagen and elastin are created, leaving your skin looking tighter, firmer, brighter, and younger.
The best candidate for Potenza RF Microneedling is anyone who would like to address fine lines and moderate wrinkles, irregular texture skin texture, skin laxity, and jowling, uneven skin tone from sun damage, acne scars, or stretch marks.
RF Microneedling is great for patients with all types and tones of skin and can be used on every area of the body.
RF Microneedling works as a great way to treat the following:
Potenza is an advanced Microneedling treatment that allows for a faster, more customizable treatment with minimal downtime.
The first step to getting RF Microneedling in the Boise & Eagle areas is education. We firmly believe that knowledge about the treatment should be the starting place. During your consultation, we’ll educate you on the procedure and anticipated outcomes, answer your questions, and provide our expert insights.
The cost of RF Microneedling at Renu will vary depending on a number of factors. The best way to get the most accurate cost will be to schedule a consultation. During your appointment, we can discuss all of the associated costs and go over financing options to help manage the payment process.
When you come into Renu for your RF Microneedling treatment, you will begin by having your makeup removed and your skin cleaned. Then, a topical numbing cream will be applied about 30 minutes before your treatment.
During the treatment, a microneedle tip is placed on the outer layer of the skin, which then penetrates the tissue as the monopolar or bipolar radiofrequency energy is directly applied to the target treatment area. Your body’s natural repair process will be triggered, which results in the building of new collagen and elastin. Some patients may also experience small pinpoint bleeding during treatment, which is normal.
After your treatment is completed, topical finishing products will be applied to help your healing process. Most patients see their full results 12 weeks after their last treatment. Potenza RF Microneedling treatments are generally performed within one hour.
When you are finished with your treatment, you may experience swelling, redness, and possible irritation. These symptoms typically disappear after a few days and can be alleviated with a cold compress and over-the-counter pain medication.
You should wear sunscreen throughout the day to maintain the best results, as well as keep your skin moisturized. We strongly recommend avoiding wearing make-up, washing the treated area with hot water, and excessive heat, sweating, or steam for at least the first 24-hours of your treatment.
How many treatments are needed?
The number of treatments needed will all depend on your preference and desired results, yet most patients require 3 or 4 treatments that are spread six weeks apart to achieve the best results.
Is it painful?
Most patients say the discomfort level for this treatment is minimal and very tolerable, although this can be dependent on individual pain tolerance. Most patients report a slight stinging with mild heat.
