Stimulate Collagen Production with Radiofrequency (RF) Microneedling
Potenza RF Microneedling
We look younger and more vibrant when we have a healthy amount of collagen and elastin in our faces. Unfortunately, as we age, collagen and elastin production naturally slows down. Microneedling is a minimally invasive technique performed to stimulate collagen production and restore smoother, firmer skin. Microneedling can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, acne, scars, uneven skin tone, rosacea and more.
How Radiofrequency Microneedling Works
At MedEye Aesthetics, we offer Potenza RF Microneedling. This process involves a handheld tool that contains a group of tiny needles to puncture the skin in targeted areas. The ultrafine needles are combined with heat to penetrate the top layer of the skin and trigger the body’s natural healing process to regenerate new collagen and elastin. Technology called Therapeutic Logic Control (TLC) activates a timer when tissue has reached therapeutic temperature, allowing for proper delivery of RF every time.
While treatments are safe for most skin types, our team will want to assess your skin prior to making this recommendation. Several treatments may be necessary to achieve the aesthetic results you desire. It will take 4-6 weeks for your body to begin to re-build elastin and collagen. Most patients achieve their optimal results 12 weeks after the last treatment.
Side Effects of Potenza RF Microneedling
Side effects of microneedling can include skin irritation such as swelling, redness, bruising and dryness. This treatment is done with a sterile tool, but infection is also a risk. If you have a bleeding disorder, this may not be a safe treatment for you. Our team will assess your skin condition and medical history before recommending microneedling for you.
Potenza RF Microneedling Downtime
Your skin may be red and irritated after treatment, but there is typically no extensive downtime after microneedling. Your skin will be very sensitive to the sun, so it will be best to stay out of the sun or take measures to protect your skin from harmful rays.
