Potenza Radiofrequency (RF) and Microneedling

Introducing Potenza RF micro-needling, the pioneering Radiofrequency (RF) and Microneedling device globally, that combines both monopolar and bipolar radiofrequency technologies. With the cutting-edge Potenza RF and micro-needling advancements, we can tailor a treatment plan to suit your specific requirements. This innovative technology is effective in treating all skin types and various areas of the body.

What is Potenza RF and Microneedling?

The Potenza RF and Microneedling treatment offers a non-invasive solution that combines the benefits of Radiofrequency for firming, tightening, and smoothing the skin, along with Microneedling designed to minimize pore size, diminish scars and improve skin texture.

What is Radiofrequency (RF)?

Radiofrequency (RF), infra-red, and deep ultrasound options are available, effectively promoting neocollagenesis to firm, tighten, lift, and smoothen the skin. Different RF energies include:

  • Biploar RF: combines two closely places active poles to ensure the energy is being delivered superficially into the skin (typically 1/1.5mm, but this can vary).
  • Monoploar RF: Delivers energy into the tissue using a singular electrode – a grounding pad is also used for this type of energy.
  • Multipolar RF: Utilizers multiple active poles the enable much deeper delivery of energy, though this is typically not as deep as monopolar.
  • Unipolar RF: Differs from both bipolar and monopolar, and emits energy at a superficial to medium depth.

Monopolar RF is often preferred as it creates an electromagnetic field (AMF) with alternating polarity that stimulates charged particle movement, generating an electric current. This current effectively travels through hydrophilic structure like a dermal collagen framework and underlying fibrous septae, with less efficiency through subcutaneous fat. Tissue resistance leads to localized heat within collagen-based structures.

Collagen denaturation occurs at approximately 60-65°C, with little effect below 60°C and minimal results about 70°C. Monopolar RF induces neocollagenesis in the papillary dermis, upper, mid, and deep reticular dermis, as well as neoelastinogenesis in the papillary dermis and upper and mid-reticular dermis. While high-intensity focused Ultrasound (HIFU) may have more supporting literature, monopolar RF is considered a superior treatment method for neocollagenesis and neoelastinogenesis.

Collagen rejuvenation occurs gradually over a month post-treatment, with increased small collagen fiber formation evident at 30 days. Tissue changes, including neocollagensis, neoelastinogenis, and the deposition of new Hyaluronic acid, have been observed at 10 weeks after treatment within the denaturation range.
