Introducing Potenza

– the revolutionary skin-perfecting treatment now available at Metro Beauty Centers in Bangkok

The quest for eternal youth never ends, does it? But since we’re human, we’re susceptible to the aging process. On the flipside, there is always good news. The cosmetic beauty industry is possibly the most innovative medical field in the world so the process of youthening; or rather, the process of looking more youthful can now be achieved through quick and simple lunchtime procedures.

The latest advancement  in energy-based technology is Potenza, now available at Metro Beauty Centers. Potenza is an FDA-approved device with the double advantage of combining radiofrequency with microneedling. This revolutionary functionally works to remodel, renew and ‘youthens’ the skin on multi-levels. This treatment has both skin tightening and collagen-multiplication benefits comparable, some doctors say to a viable non-surgical facelift.

So how does Potenza work?

The treatment stimulates the skin, boosting collagen and elastin generation on the most profound of levels. This results in tighter and taut skin on both skin and body; wrinkles and fine lines are reduced; skin’s texture refines; blemishes fade and reveals a more luminous complexion; for body treatments, cellulite is significantly reduced; and best of all, Potenza embodies the technology that allows patients to customize their treatments and their results.

At Metro Beauty Centers, Potenza treatments are conducted by our doctors, and usually last an hour or so. The treatment begins after numbing cream is applied to the targeted area. After understanding the patient’s needs, the doctor will calibrate the Potenza RF microneedling settings. A new microneedling tip is used for each treatment. Topical numbing cream  is applied before each treatment to minimize any discomfort.

Once the treatment area is cleansed, the treatment begins with precise targeting of the microneedling tip over the skin. The needles will penetrate to a specific depth and a radiofrequency current will be released. This will send instructions to the skin to begin its rejuvenation process.

The beauty of a Potenza treatment is its short and long-term benefits. Your skin will most likely look flushed and feel tender straight after a treatment. After a week or two, skin begins to regain both firmness and brightness. For patients with damaged and sagging skin, a series of three to five Potenza microneedling treatments are suggested for maximum benefits. Within three months after your series of three – five treatments, you will notice results that you’ll love to keep. These magical benefits stretch for the next three to nine months.

What should I do before my Potenza treatment?

It’s suggested to stop using exfoliating acid-based skincare products a few days before your treatment. As for prescription retinoids, temporarily stop using these products ( seven-days are recommended). Drink lots of water and do not drink alcohol 24 hours prior to your treatment. For body parts with hair growth, kindly shave before the procedure.

More about Potenza

Even better, Potenza has the versatility that allows doctors to tailor-create your treatment, working in tandem with you to achieve your wish to look younger and your best. Potenza’s multi-benefits include boosting skin tone, improving skin texture and diminishing scars. Basically, Potenza is the treatment to have if you’re looking to get the ultimate glow up!

Tell more more about the technology involved

 Potenza matches microneedling and radiofrequency technology to remodel skin’s behavior on the most profound of levels. The treatment can be adapted for all skin conditions and for patients of all ages.

Potenza works to remodel any type of skin, and the treatment’s benefits include desirably firmer and tighter skin; dramatic reduction on wrinkle depth, blemishes and cellulite; luminous skin with a more refined texture; and Potenza’s unique Fusion tip allows for a targeted application of topical skincare products to boost its benefits to optimal levels.

When can I expect results?

Improvements to the skin can be seen in a week or two, immediately after the first treatment. In patients with sagging skin, these benefits are extended after a series of three to five treatments, spaced four to six weeks apart. Most patients happily note that improvements continue for the next six months to a year after the first series of treatments. These results can be maintained with subsequent yearly treatments.

Why is Potenza so effective?

First of all, the technology employs microneedling and radiofrequency. Microneedling, as some would know, is the advanced version of what a dermaroller does. Remember those? Microneedling with its minute needles penetrates skin to instruct it to activate its restorative functions. Radiofrequency, on the other hand, is conveyed through the same needles, and provides added benefits of stimulation.

When combined, these two skin boosting modalities give instructions to the skin to increase its collagen production. Collagen, as we all know, is the building block that keeps skin firm; while elastin is the component that ensures the skin is firm and taut.

Potenza is programmed with highly adaptive functions that feature different treatment modes and microneedling tips so patients can always be assured that the treatment they have is the best treatment for them!

Which is better – Potenza or Morpheus8?

The simple answer is that both machines combine radiofrequency and microneedling technology. Both Potenza and Morpheus8 work extremely well to tighten skin and reduce wrinkles.

But Potenza has the benefit of offering more treatment functions. This includes a monopolar radiofrequency that works deep within skin (deeper and more targeted than Morpheus8), and features a Tiger Tip that is able to target the different layers of skin.

Morpheus8, on the other hand, has the ability to reduce subdermal fat, giving a slimmer and more toned look to the skin, and improving skin’s elasticity; for this reason, Morpheus may be a better choice for body treatments, e.g. in the abdominal area. With Potenza, only the sagging skin is tightened and the effects on fatty tissue are usually minimal.

At Metro Beauty Centers, we work effectively to exact the perfect treatment function for each of our patient’s Potenza treatment. Our team of expert doctors is trained to consider each patient’s unique facial or body structures when conducting every Potenza treatment. This results in more than impressive outcomes.
