Are you terrified by the idea of microneedling? Imagine tiny needles being “punched” into your face simultaneously, creating hundreds or thousands of “tiny punctures” or holes in your skin?
While the thought of having many tiny needles rolled over your skin may seem scary, did you know that the tiny punctures are meant to stimulate your skin’s natural ability to heal itself and, in the process, trigger more collagen and elastin to be produced in your body?
Microneedling is in fact, a rejuvenating cosmetic procedure that causes only minimal discomfort, compared to the many benefits it can offer.
If microneedling is already a powerful treatment in addressing a variety of skin concerns, Potenza is like a SUPERHERO version of traditional microneedling!
POTENZA is said to take things ONE STEP FURTHER by adding RADIOFREQUENCY ENERGY to the treatment to ENHANCE THE TREATMENT RESULTS.
In this article, let’s find out whether traditional microneedling (some call it Derma rolling) or Potenza RF microneedling is the right one for you.
Here are the benefits they both offer.
|No.||Differences||Potenza Microneedling||Traditional Microneedling||Examples|
|1.||Depth and precision of the needles:||The needles in Potenza microneedling can penetrate the skin at a deeper level and are adjustable (size ranges from 0.2mm to 2.5mm), allowing for more precision in targeting specific areas of the skin.||Traditional microneedling needles have a fixed length and cannot penetrate as deeply.||Where a patient has deep acne scars, Potenza microneedling is able to penetrate the skin more deeply and target the scarred tissue more precisely than traditional microneedling.|
|2.||Combination with frequency energy:||Potenza Microneedling adds the element of radiofrequency energy to the treatment, which can further enhance skin tightening, scar and wrinkle reduction.||Does not incorporate this technology.||Provide an extra boost of collagen production and skin tightening, which may be particularly effective for patients with loose or sagging skin. Traditional microneedling cannot offer this benefit.|
|3.||Customizable treatment||The depth and amount of radiofrequency energy can be adjusted to suit the specific needs of the patient and target certain skin conditions.||Does not offer this level of customization.||A patient with fine lines and wrinkles may benefit from a different treatment depth and radiofrequency energy level than a patient with acne scars. Traditional microneedling does not allow for this level of customization.|
|4.||Treatment level||Professional treatment done at a medical spa or aesthetic clinic (Luxurious Spa Day).||Microneedling can be done at home with a derma roller (DIY facial at home).|
Patients opting for microneedling would require more procedures and would be generally unable to reach the even greater results available with RF microneedling. However, substantial improvement is still possible. Traditional microneedling is good for slower and more subtle rejuvenation. If you are looking for improved results, RF microneedling is recommended for enhancing the overall tone and texture of the skin as it better facilitates the production of collagen and elastin.
Introducing microneeding together with your skincare journey may look scary. However, it is proven helpful in treating deep scars, facial lines and also stretch marks on your skin.
