What is RF Microneedling?

The Power Of Dual Techniques

RF Microneedling, or radiofrequency microneedling, is an advanced aesthetic treatment that combines microneedling with radiofrequency energy to improve skin texture, tone, and overall appearance by stimulating collagen and elastin production. Microneedling uses fine needles to create tiny punctures or micro-injuries in the skin, triggering the body's natural healing response and stimulating collagen and elastin production. Simultaneously, the device delivers radiofrequency energy deep into the dermis, which heats the underlying layers of the skin, enhancing collagen and elastin production even further.

THE POTENZA DIFFERENCE

Unleashing the Power of Precision

At Après Plastic Surgery, we use the Potenza device for our RF Microneedling treatments, setting a new standard in skin rejuvenation. The Potenza device is the world's first FDA-cleared four-mode RF Microneedling system, offering unmatched versatility and precision. Potenza’s effectiveness lies in its ability to operate in monopolar or bipolar modes at either 1 MHz or 2 MHz frequencies. It features Tiger Tip technology, which allows for more efficient treatments by targeting more tissue per treatment pass. It can also precisely control the depth of needle penetration and the intensity of radiofrequency energy. This level of customization and flexibility ensures that every treatment is tailored to the patient’s skin type and concerns, optimizing outcomes.

Step-By-Step For Better Skin

What to Expect During RF Microneedling

We will start by applying a topical numbing cream to the treatment area in order to ensure comfort during the procedure. Your specialist will then prepare the RF Microneedling device, adjusting the needle depth and radiofrequency settings based on your skin type and treatment goals. They will then use the handheld device in the treatment area to simultaneously create microchannels in the skin and emit radiofrequency energy to the deeper layers of the skin. The entire process typically lasts between 30 to 60 minutes.
