What is Potenza™ RF Microneedling?

Potenza™ RF microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that uses a handheld device to deliver radiofrequency (RF) energy into the skin via ultrafine needles.

The needles create micro channels in the skin, allowing the RF energy to deliver heat in the deeper layers of the skin.

This heat triggers the skin’s natural repair process, which results in the production of new collagen and elastin.

Potenza combines 4-mode RF microneedling system with Fusion Tip Technology: for better topical absorption into the skin…

And  Tiger Tip™ Technology: for  shallow and deep treatments for various skin types and concern. 

In other words, it can be customized to the your unique skin type and condition.

Potenza RF microneedling is a non-surgical treatment that can help improve the appearance of your skin.

 Minimally invasive and with little downtime, you can resume your normal activities shortly after the procedure.

How Potenza™ Rf Microneedling works

During the procedure, a topical numbing cream is applied to the skin to reduce discomfort – takes about 30 mins to kick in.

Then, the RF microneedling device, with the insulated needles, is used to create microchannels in the skin.

Radiofrequency energy is then delivered through these micro channels, which heats up the deeper layer of the skin and triggers the production of collagen and elastin.

The number of treatments needed will also vary depending on your skin condition and desired results.

However, most patients need 2 to 5 treatments spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart.

You may start seeing improvements after 1-2 treatments and continued improvement will be noticed in the following 6 – 12 months.

Most RF microneedling treatments take about 30 minutes to an hour.

How Do I Prepare For Potenza™ Rf Microneedling?

  • Keep hydrated by drinking water (at least eight cups daily) or hydrating fluids to improve treatment outcomes.


  • Avoid drinking alcohol for 24 hours in advance of treatment.
  • For 3 to 7 days prior to treatment, at the physician’s discretion, avoid therapies that may cause erythema (redness) or irritation, such as retinols or products containing isotretinoin and any exfoliating acid preparations.


  • Shave visible hair from the treatment area. *Male beards should be shaved on the day of treatment.


  • The same procedure should be followed prior to each visit.

RF Microneedling Aftercare

Post-treatment side effects include mild discomfort, swelling, and redness that usually subsides within 2 to 24 hours. A regimen to moisturize and soothe the external skin post-treatment is recommended.

  • Avoid ultraviolet rays and apply sunblock >30 SPF UV A/B daily.


  • Avoid alcohol consumption if possible.


  • For 24 hours, refrain from high-intensity aerobic exercise or activities that increase the body temperature like saunas, hot tubs, steam showers, or exercise (i.e., jogging, weight training, etc.).

Who is The Best Candidate For Potenza™ RF Microneedling?

Potenza RF Microneedling is an excellent option for those in Ottawa, looking to tackle fine lines and moderate wrinkles, especially around the eyes or on the forehead.

If you’re aiming to improve skin texture irregularities, tighten your skin, restore an even skin tone affected by sun damage, or diminish the visibility of acne scars and stretch marks, Potenza RF Microneedling is the ideal treatment for your specific skincare needs.

Who is Not A Candidate For Potenza™ RF Microneedling?

Some of the contraindications of Potenza RF microneedling include:

Avoid Potenza RF microneedling if you have any active skin infections, such as acne or eczema. This is so that the infection won’t spread to other areas of the skin through the procedure.

If you have a history of keloid formation, book a consultation with Dr. Lian before considering Potenza RF microneedling. Keloids are raised scar tissue that can form after an injury or surgery. Potenza RF microneedling can increase the risk of keloid formation.

Women who are expecting or nursing should not use Potenza RF microneedling. This is because the procedure’s safety for these populations can’t yet be established.

If you have an active bleeding disorder, you should book a consultation with Dr. Lian  before considering Potenza RF microneedling. This is because the procedure can cause bleeding.

Before deciding for Potenza RF microneedling, you should schedule a consultation with Dr. Lian if you have any metal implants in your skin, such as a pacemaker or metal stent.

This is due to the risk of metal implants getting affected by the procedure’s radiofrequency energy.

Especially during Ottawa’s sunny summer months, be mindful of sunburns before scheduling Potenza RF microneedling. Sunburned skin isn’t a suitable canvas for the procedure, as it can worsen the irritation.

Frequently Asked Questions

Potenza RF microneedling can last for up to five years, and you can seek follow-up treatments to extend the effects further. On the other hand, traditional microneedling will only last three to five months, but you can also seek some follow-up treatments twice a year to extend the results.

The Potenza radiofrequency microneedling treatment by Cynosure® is a customizable solution to help tighten and firm your skin, minimize the common signs of aging and reduce blemishes. Potenza takes RF microneedling to new levels with revolutionizing enhanced topical penetration.

Potenza RF microneedling is generally considered to be more effective than traditional microneedling. This is because Potenza combines the benefits of microneedling with the benefits of radiofrequency energy. Radiofrequency energy helps to heat the skin, which can stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. This can lead to improved skin texture, reduced wrinkles, and a more youthful appearance

Side effects are to be anticipated following a Potenza RF microneedling treatment. The skin will be flushed or red as if you’ve spent the day in the sun with a mild to moderate sunburn, which may be expected when you leave your appointment. Potenza RF Microneedling-induced redness usually goes away in 48 hours or less. Other side effects may include swelling, bruising, and light discomfort.

A topical numbing cream will be applied prior to your Potenza treatment. Once the numbing cream is activated, the treatment should be very tolerable. During the treatment you may feel a mild sting, a warm sensation, or a light pressure from the needles as the device moves over the treatment area.

The number of Potenza treatments needed will depend on patient preference and their desired results. Providers will typically recommend having a series of three to four treatments, six weeks apart for best results. However, some people may see results after only one treatment.

Potenza microneedling is considered a very safe and effective treatment for people of all skin types and pigments, and it can be performed at any time of year, with no downtime necessary. However, as with all medical procedures, not everyone is a suitable candidate for this type of treatment.

You should notice smoother, more glowing skin within about two weeks. It can take between 2 to 6 months to see long-term results because it takes time for your body to start making collagen and elastin after a treatment.

In Ottawa, the cost of Potenza RF microneedling varies based on the area treated and the number of sessions needed. At Dr. Lian Beauty, expect to pay between $300 and $800 per single treatment session. Consult with a licensed practitioner for a personalized quote based on your specific needs.

Potenza RF Microneedling Pre Post Care | Expected downtime: 5-7 days. Expected healing and side effects include redness, swelling, bruising, light discomfort, and possibly small bumps and pinpoint bleeding.

Botox and RF microneedling are both effective treatments for improving the appearance of the skin. However, they work in different ways and are best suited for different people. Botox works by blocking the nerve signals that cause muscles to contract, which can help to smooth out wrinkles and fine lines. RF microneedling works by creating tiny channels in the skin that allow for the delivery of nutrients and growth factors, which can help to stimulate collagen production and improve skin texture.

Potenza Fusion is a microneedling device that uses a unique dual air-chamber design to enhance topical delivery. The ultrafine needles in the Fusion Tip use the benefit of each burst of air to push the topicals down into the dermis, the layer of skin that contains collagen and elastin. This can help to improve the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, and other skin concerns.

Potenza Fusion tip with HA is a treatment that uses tiny needles to make micro channels in your skin. This helps your skin absorb hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a natural substance that helps to keep your skin hydrated and plump. HA can also help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and make your skin look younger.

Fusion tip with PRP is a microneedling treatment that uses platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to improve the appearance of the skin. The Fusion tip is used to create microchannels in the skin, and the PRP is then delivered to the deeper layers of the skin through the microchannels. This helps to stimulate collagen production and improve skin texture.

PRP is a better choice for RF microneedling than HA because it contains growth factors, can penetrate deeper into the skin, and is more effective for certain skin concerns. HA is less expensive and more available, but it is not as effective for wrinkles, fine lines, and acne scars.
