Potenza in St. Petersburg, FL

As we get older, our skin loses its stretchiness, and wrinkles, lines, and sagging start showing up, making us look older than we want.

Potenza is the best microneedling tools in the beauty world. They use radiofrequency energy to reshape and tone the face and body by adjusting the fatty layer underneath the skin. This special treatment goes deep into the skin and fat layers, giving a smoother and sleeker look.

By focusing on the deeper skin layers, these tools encourage the building blocks to rearrange naturally, helping in an anti-aging process. It’s a process that causes almost no harm to the skin’s deeper layer, ensuring a very even result.

Potenza is great choices for those who want to enhance their looks without opting for surgery.

At Waters Edge Medical Clinic and Spa, we prefer Potenza for facial treatments because of its sleek design, letting us work close to the eyes and nose. It comes with multiple head options for different treatments like acne, scars, managing wrinkles, and an overall facelift.

What is Potenza?

Potenza™ is an FDA-approved treatment for the face and body using radiofrequency (RF) microneedling. It uses super tiny needles and radiofrequency energy to go into the upper skin layer. This helps activate the body’s natural healing process, making new collagen and elastin.

The Potenza is also a minimally invasive radio frequency device, that works beautifully on the face and neck region. The potenza has. a sleek design, plus multiple interchangable tips that allow for a closer and deeper penetration. The tips include S-25, I-25, S-49, I-49, A1-15 and CP-2 each tip has different numbers of needles and various functions.

The tips are designed with two spaces where the volume changes as the needles move. The movement of the needles within the spaces creates negative and positive pressure resulting in tissue being pulled into the needle tip chamber, and an emitted puff of air. This puff of air towards the skin with each pulse also enhances the penetration of topicals into the skin, such as PRP (platelet rich plasma) therapy.

What areas Can the Potenza Treat?

Face & Body

Potenza is a versatile treatment that can be applied to various areas of the body and face, offering solutions for skin tightening, contouring, and rejuvenation


The radiofrequency energy emitted by Potenza not only enhances the micro-injury healing process but also penetrates deeper into the skin layers. This stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, crucial proteins responsible for skin elasticity, firmness, and overall youthfulness.

Darker Skin Tones

Potenza is generally considered safe for all skin types, but proper technique and parameter adjustment are crucial for minimizing the risk of complications, especially in individuals with darker skin tones.

How Does Potenza Work?

Potenza employs a dual-action process to enhance skin texture and firmness. Firstly, the treatment involves microneedling, utilizing ultrafine needles to create controlled micro-injuries on the skin’s surface. Simultaneously, Potenza delivers radiofrequency (RF) energy into the deeper layers of the skin, generating gentle heat.

This combined approach triggers the skin’s natural response to produce more collagen, a crucial protein for skin strength and elasticity. The micro-injuries stimulate the skin’s healing process, resulting in the regeneration of new collagen and elastin.

Notably versatile, Potenza can be applied to different areas of the body and face, offering tailored solutions for specific skin concerns. The treatment is further distinguished by its customization, allowing healthcare professionals to adjust the depth of the needles and the intensity of the RF energy based on individual skin needs. Potenza’s minimal downtime and FDA approval underline its safety and effectiveness in promoting natural skin rejuvenation.

How do I know if I am a good candidate for Potenza?

Potenza is suitable for most healthy men and women looking for a non-surgical solution to reduce the signs of aging. It is suitable for all skin types, whether you have dry, normal, oily, or sensitive skin. The Potenza is not recommended for anyone with a pacemaker.

How quickly will you see results?

While every patient’s skin is unique, Potenza results can be seen in as few as three days, with the most noticeable results appearing after 1 month. You may continue to see improvements months after treatment as it takes collagen up to 6 months to fully form. We recommend three treatments spaced out 4 to 6 weeks apart for best results, although there is no upper limit on how many treatments you can have. Skin-tightening results can last, on average, 2 to 5 years.

At gentler settings, Morpheus 8 can deliver significant improvements in skin, including tightening, smoothing, brightening, and more. 

The Potenza is also a radio frequency microneedling device that focuses on electrocoagulation and hemostasis. The Potenza has two modes and multiple heads including the first of its kind fusion tip which enhances the penetration of topicals into the skin. The Potenza is more versatile and customizable for any skin type. 

What is the benefit of fractionated energy?

Fractionated RF energy is a scientifically proven method to reduce wrinkles and rebuild collagen and fat. It is minimally invasive, using a matrix of micro pins to renew deeper layers of the skin with almost no patient downtime.

What is the downtime with Potenza?

Since patient downtime is minimal, makeup can be applied 1 to 2 days after the treatment. Patients should expect to see micro lesions a few days after treatment and slight redness for up to 1 week, depending on treatment parameters.

Who can use Potenza?

The Potenza also uses a similar technology that allows all skin types to use this advanced technology. 

Can Potenza be used on my face?

Potenza with its sleek design and multiple tip option is a better choice for using on the face. The most common areas to be treated include the upper and lower eyelids, the mouth and cheeks, and the neck.

Is Potenza painful?

We do our best to make every treatment comfortable. Microneedling with radiofrequency may feel slightly uncomfortable in certain areas. However, our topical numbing cream makes treatment much more pleasant than many patients expect.

What post-procedure care is required after Potenza?

An ointment is applied for 48 hours after a treatment. After that, moisturizer, makeup, and sunscreen may be applied. Mild swelling and redness and minimal to no bruising may persist for a week. There is no oozing or discomfort afterward. It is important to avoid direct sun exposure and use good, broad-spectrum sunscreen every day. In addition to reducing the future risk of skin cancer, sunscreens also reduce wrinkles, slow the aging process, and protect your results

What is the cost of the Potenza treatment?

Potenza cost varies from patient to patient depending on the size and location of the treatment area. Typically, Potenza treatment cost ranges from $1000 to $1,700 per session. Please give us a call to learn about promotions or special pricing.
