Many of our patients wish to rejuvenate their skin while also smoothing away uneven skin texture. Our Potenza radiofrequency microneedling treatments do just that. Texas Dermatology offers radiofrequency microneedling with the Potenza system to adults in San Antonio, Boerne, New Braunfels, Kenedy and surrounding areas of Texas.
What is Radiofrequency Microneedling?
Radiofrequency (RF) microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that combines the power of radiofrequency technology and advanced microneedling techniques to provide patients with younger-looking and healthier-feeling skin. The hair-like microneedles trigger the body’s natural response and increases the production of collagen and elastin in the skin. While this happens, gentle heat from radiofrequency energy revitalizes the complexion and smooths away fine lines and wrinkles caused by lax skin. At Texas Dermatology, we are proud to use the Potenza RF microneedling system to treat all skin types, anywhere on the body.
How Much Does Potenza Radiofrequency Microneedling Cost?
Potenza RF microneedling is a quick and cost-effective alternative to laser treatments that doesn’t require extensive downtime or recovery. The cost of your Potenza RF microneedling treatment can vary depending on the size of the areas you choose to be treated and the extent of treatment needed to achieve your desired results. During your consultation, we can provide details on the cost of treatment and discuss financing options through CareCredit®.
What are the Benefits of Radiofrequency Microneedling with Potenza?
There are many benefits to getting RF microneedling done with the Potenza system at Texas Dermatology, including:
- Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
- Tightens lax skin
- Reduces blemishes
- Smooths away acne scarring
- Minimizes enlarged pores
What Can I Expect During my Radiofrequency Microneedling Treatments?
Your Potenza RF microneedling treatments will be performed by your expert medical staff in our comfortable office. Before your treatment begins, a topical anesthetic may be applied to your treatment area. This is to ensure you remain comfortable throughout your entire treatment. During your treatment, you may feel a quick, warm sensation in the targeted areas caused by the radiofrequency energy and thin, hair-like needles puncturing the skin. Most patients report little to no discomfort while being treated.
What Can I Expect After my Radiofrequency Microneedling Treatments?
Immediately following your Potenza RF microneedling treatment, you may notice your skin being red and sensitive, similar to the sensation of a sunburn. This is normal and typically resolves on its own within a few hours. Following your RF microneedling treatment, we may ask you avoid wearing makeup for about 24-48 hours. This is just to ensure your skin has time to heal from treatment.
How Many Potenza Radiofrequency Microneedling Treatments Will I Need?
Because it takes time for the elastin and collagen levels in your skin to increase, it may take several weeks to see a significant difference in the appearance of your skin. Most patients report seeing their results within four to six weeks of treatment with ultimate results becoming visible after about three months. The number of treatments you need will depend on the condition of your skin, your desired results, and how your skin reacts to the RF microneedling treatments. To get a better estimate of how many treatments you will need, we encourage you to come in for a private consultation with one of our dermatology practitioners.
