Experience a revolutionary advancement in skin rejuvenation with Potenza RF microneedling. This cutting-edge treatment goes far beyond what traditional radiofrequency microneedling procedures can do, offering a dynamic solution to a range of skin concerns that often come with aging and the ability to infuse sterile solutions into the skin.
Unlike standard treatments, Potenza RF microneedling incorporates both bipolar and monopolar radiofrequency, allowing for tailored treatment plans to all skin types that can target varying depths of the skin. The bipolar option treats horizontally while the monopolar option reaches vertically into the deeper dermis and is safer for people with more darker skin tones and promotes both collagen and elastin production that’s essential for skin tightening and skin thickness, providing a viable nonsurgical alternative to facelift surgery.
Additionally, Potenza microneedling infuses sterile customized medications into the dermis using a patented pressurized air chamber. Potenza’s microneedles offer an effective treatment for superficial and deep skin concerns, a quick recovery with minimal downtime and a low risk of side effects, making this treatment a gentle yet powerful choice for skin rejuvenation.
With Potenza RF microneedling, not only are you addressing immediate concerns, but you’re also investing in preventive maintenance to improve skin structure in the dermis.Potenza increases elastin which tightens the skin, increases collagen which thickens the skin, and increases the production of dermal proteins which hold on to water and cause hysdration. Your path to radiant, youthful skin begins here at Nouveau MedSpas in Gig Harbor, WA.
What Is Potenza™ RF Microneedling?
Potenza is the world’s first RF microneedling machine that combines both monopolar and bipolar radiofrequency at 1 or 2MHz and infusion to create multiple unique RF modes. Potenza works by delivering these RF energies at various levels in the skin, stimulating collagen and elastin production. This results in tighter, smoother, more youthful skin.
With Potenza, you can target multiple layers of the skin in one session, addressing a variety of concerns from fine lines to deeper wrinkles and sagging skin. This unique combination allows for a highly customizable treatment suitable for all skin types and tones and nearly any area of the face or body.
What Can Potenza™ RF Microneedling Treat?
- Fine lines
- Sagging skin
- Uneven skin texture
- Thinning skin anywhere on the body including arms, knees, face, neck
- Stretch marks
What Does Monopolar Radiofrequency Do?
- Deep Penetration: Monopolar RF energy can penetrate deeper into the skin, targeting the subdermal layer to stimulate collagen production. This is particularly beneficial for treating sagging skin and deeper wrinkles.
- Wider Area of Effect: Because it penetrates deeper, monopolar RF also has a broader area of effect, making it great for larger treatment areas.
- Versatility: It’s often used for non-facial areas like the abdomen and thighs, offering a more versatile range of treatment options.
What Does Bipolar Radiofrequency Do?
- Surface-Level Treatment: Unlike monopolar, bipolar RF focuses on the superficial and deep layers of the skin. This makes it ideal for treating fine lines, deep wrinkles, surface scars and uneven skin texture.
- Precision: Bipolar RF is more localized, allowing for greater precision in treating specific areas of concern.
- Minimal Discomfort: Generally, treatments with bipolar RF are considered to cause minimal discomfort, making it a good option for those with a lower pain tolerance.
Your RF Microneedling Tip Options
Potenza’s RF microneedling tips are specialized attachments on the end of the motorized handpiece. These tips contain an array of fine needles that penetrate the skin to a predetermined depth. As the needles create micro-injuries in the skin, they also deliver radiofrequency energy, stimulating collagen and elastin production for skin tightening and smoothing.
Each type of tip serves a specific purpose and offers unique benefits. Here’s a closer look at what each RF microneedling tip means for your treatment:
Fusion Tip: 21 Insulated Needles
The electrode tip of each needle is uninsulated to deliver precise RF energy at the desired depth. This allows for effective skin rejuvenation while the insulated portion of the needles protect the surface of the skin from excessive heat.
Highly Effective Infusion Capabilities
The Fusion Tip is a game-changer when it comes to the delivery of topical skincare products. It uses a dual-air chamber design to capture and release air toward the skin, enhancing the penetration of topicals into the channels created by the microneedles. With most applications, only 1 to 5% of topical products are absorbed by the skin. The Fusion Tip can deliver 67% more topicals into the skin compared to other devices, allowing for a more efficient use of these products.
Tiger Tips: Semi-insulated Needles (16, 25, or 49 Needle Array)
The Tiger Tip is designed for deep tissue tightening by delivering RF energy in two horizontal areas at different depths. This is achieved in fewer passes and without damaging the skin’s surface, making it an excellent choice for comprehensively treating larger areas.
Single Needle Tips
Single needle tips are specialized attachments designed for ultra-precise, targeted treatments. Unlike multi-needle tips that treat a broader area, single needle tips focus on specific, localized concerns. They are particularly useful for treating small scars, isolated wrinkles or other minor imperfections that require a more concentrated approach.
Understanding the benefits of each RF microneedling tip can help you make an informed decision about your Potenza treatment. During your consultation at Nouveau MedSpas, you’ll receive personalized advice on which tips are best suited for your goals.
Who Are Good Candidates for Potenza™?
You may have slathered on every cream under the sun, experimented with serums that promise the moon, and even braved the pins and pricks of traditional microneedling. But those stubborn fine lines, uneven skin tone and pesky scars are still crashing your complexion party. Sound familiar? If you’re nodding along, feeling like you’ve hit a skincare plateau, then you might be a good candidate for Potenza microneedling.
Ideal candidates are over the age of 20 with mild to moderate skin issues like wrinkles, sagging or uneven texture.

Preparing for Your Potenza™ Microneedling Treatment
Before your treatment at Nouveau MedSpas, you’ll have a consultation to discuss your specific needs and concerns. You might be advised to avoid sun exposure and abrasive skin products and retinols leading up to your appointment . We advise that you begin hydration 24 hours before your procedure. One of our physicians will write you a prescripton for topical numbing cream to apply 2 hours before your procedure.
What to Expect During Your Potenza™ Procedure
Your skin will be cleansed, and a topical anesthetic will be removed. The Potenza device will then make tiny punctures in your skin while delivering RF energy. The entire process can usually be completed in 45 minutes or less.
Recovery After Potenza™ RF Microneedling
Following a Potenza RF microneedling treatment, it is common to experience mild redness and swelling in the treated area. These are typical side effects and generally subside within a day or two.
The downtime associated with this treatment is minimal, allowing patients to resume most activities right away. However, we recommend avoiding strenuous exercise and excessive heat exposure for the following week.
Tips for Post-treatment Care
- Avoid Sun Exposure: Limit your time in the sun for at least a week after the procedure.
- Use Gentle Skincare Products: Stick to mild cleansers and moisturizers to avoid irritating your skin.
- Stay Hydrated: Drink plenty of water to help your skin heal more effectively.
What Results Can I Expect From Potenza™ RF Microneedling?
You’ll start to see results within a few weeks as your skin begins to produce more collagen. These results can last several months and be maintained with follow-up treatments. We recommend a series of three Potenza’s for optimal results.
How Much Does Potenza™ RF Microneedling Cost?
The cost of your Potenza RF microneedling treatment can vary based on the areas being treated and the number of sessions you’ll need. During your consultation at Nouveau MedSpas, you’ll receive a customized treatment plan that includes pricing details.
Can Potenza™ Be Combined With Other Treatments?
Yes! Potenza RF microneedling can be used in conjunction with injections of sculptra (Poly L Lactic Acid) to increase production of collagen and elastin in the dermis . This is especially affective for lateral lines in the jowls, marionettes, and nasolabial folds.
