Radiofrequency Microneedling with the Potenza™ Platform

Discover the most modern treatment in aesthetic dermatology!
Derma-Act presents Cynosure’s Potenza™ – the world’s leading RF laser for facial and body contouring and lifting.

Potenza combines, for the first time in the world, four different radio frequency (RF) and microneedling functions.

Unlike traditional treatments, the innovative Potenza RF technology integrates both bipolar and monopolar radio frequency, offering personalized treatment for every skin type and at every depth.

How does Potenza™ work?

Potenza™ utilizes ultra-fine microneedles and generates heat to penetrate the top layer of the skin, triggering its natural healing process.

This process triggers the body to produce new collagen and elastin, essential proteins for skin elasticity and firmness.

The Potenza RF Microneedling has 3 different handpieces:

The Fusion tip
The Tiger tip™
The Single-needle

Each component serves a specific purpose and offers unique benefits.

Fusion tip (21 microneedles): The Fusion tip is characterized by its innovative design with a double air chamber, which enhances the penetration of products into the skin. This technology allows the absorption of the product by 67% more compared to other devices on the market, thus maximizing the results.

Tiger tip™ (16, 25 and 49 microneedles): The Tiger tip uses semi-insulated microneedles in sizes 16, 25 and 49 to treat tissues at various depths of the skin in a single session. This method allows for faster and more efficient application without causing damage to the skin surface, making it ideal for comprehensive treatment of larger surface areas.

Single Needle: When the doctor needs to perform a very targeted treatment with great precision, he chooses this accessory. Unlike the previous two (fusion, tiger) which concern wider areas, the single needle focuses on a specific point. It is an excellent choice for the treatment of small scars, isolated wrinkles or minor imperfections that require a more specific approach.

How the treatment goes?

Preparation: First, the treatment area is thoroughly cleaned. A topical anaesthetic cream is then applied to numb the skin and ensure a comfortable experience.

Treatment: The Potenza™ Fusion tip is specially designed to penetrate the desired depth into the skin with precision. As the microneedles enter the skin, they release radio frequency energy resulting in the production of collagen and elastin, essentially offering a natural lifting.

After the treatment: Immediately after the procedure, the skin is slightly red and there is a mild burning sensation. Full recovery takes about 2-3 days.

Which areas can be treated?

Potenza can be applied to different areas, both on the face and body, because of the great flexibility it offers. More specifically, Potenza is suitable for treating:

  • Entire face
  • Forehead
  • Crow’s foot
  • Cheeks
  • Under the eyes
  • Nose
  • Upper & Lower Lip
  • Chin
  • Neck

What are the advantages of Potenza?

Bipolar and Monopolar Radiofrequency: The integration of both types of radiofrequency energy allows for customized treatment planning targeting various skin types and depths, offering flexibility.

Safe for Dark Skin Tones: The monopolar option is ideal for those with darker skin, promoting collagen and elastin production, which are critical for skin firmness and density.

Injecting Sterile Solutions: Using a patented system, Potenza injects sterile solutions into the skin, offering personalized treatments based on each patient’s needs.

Minimal recovery time: Potenza’s microneedles ensure a quick recovery time and you can immediately return to your daily activities.

Preventive Skin Maintenance: Potenza treatments not only address existing problems, but also invest in preventative maintenance, improving the skin’s structure in depth.

Combines the leading technologies: Potenza has the ability to combine radio frequencies and microneedling to optimally treat skin problems. This combination offers spectacular results, which cannot be found with other devices.

Immediate and long-lasting results: The results are visible from the very first session, while they peak after about 12 – 24 weeks from the first application.



Treatment type
Bipolar energy treats the skin on a superficial level. This is mainly used to treat fine lines and wrinkles as well as, superficial scars.

In contrast, monopolar RF can penetrate deeper to stimulate collagen production and is therefore ideal for skin tightening and healing deeper scars or wrinkles.

Extent of treated area
When there is a large area of ​​the skin that needs treatment then the preferred radio frequency is monopolar. But in the event that the damage is more focused, then the doctor chooses bipolar RF for greater precision at the point.

Body areas
Those who want to apply the Potenza treatment in places other than the face, such as the abdomen or thighs, then monopolar radiofrequency is chosen as it allows for a more flexible range of options.

Pain tolerance
Although both monopolar and bipolar frequency are painless, for those of you who have no tolerance for pain at all, the use of bipolar radiofrequency is preferable.

  1. Avoid alcohol consumption for 24 hours before and after treatment to minimize inflammation
