Potenza™ Radiofrequency Microneedling


The first radiofrequency microneedling device safe for all skin colors.

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a well-tolerated aesthetic treatment that consists of using a device to create an array of superficial microscopic puncture wounds in the skin which stimulates the body’s natural healing process, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. More collagen and elastin fibres in the skin means tighter, firmer skin.

What is Potenza™ Radiofrequency Microneedling?

Radiofrequency microneedling creates an array of superficial microscopic puncture wounds in the skin meanwhile delivering radiofrequency energy into the skin. This combination increases the effectiveness of the treatment.  Heat delivered by radiofrequency energy into the deeper layers of the skin causes soft-tissue coagulation, meaning constricting and tightening of the skin with even more collagen and elastin production – this makes microneedling with radiofrequency even more effective than microneedling alone. 

The Benefits

There are Many Different Microneedling Devices Available for Treatment. What Does Dr. Chao Use and Why?

Most radiofrequency microneedling devices cannot safely treat darker skin colors. Dr. Chao uses the Potenza as it allows him to deliver effective, inclusive treatments for all skin colours. The Potenza is the world’s FIRST radiofrequency microneedling device that offers four unique radiofrequency modes, meaning it is safe for all skin types and skin colors, anywhere on the body and during any time of the year.

Various topical serums (e.g. hyaluronic acid) can be delivered into the skin with microneedling. The well-known “vampire facial” uses your own blood to create a platelet-rich plasma (PRP) that is delivered into the skin using microneedling. However, only 1-5% of these serums are typically absorbed by the skin when most conventional radiofrequency microneedling devices are used. The Potenza has patented, first-of-its-kind technology that drives 67% more topical serums into the skin, meaning serums are more evenly distributed and absorbed into the skin using the Potenza.
