First things first, what is microneedling?

Microneedling is a treatment that involves creating micro injuries on the skin’s surface to trigger the body’s natural healing process, stimulating production of collagen and elastin. It helps to improve skin texture and pore size, firm skin, and soften the look of fine lines and wrinkles.

There are three main types of microneedling treatments:
1. Mechanical Microneedling
2. Microneedling with Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)
3. Microneedling with Radiofrequency (RF) or RF Microneedling

Watch Dr. Mark Lim’s video on radiofrequency microneedling (RF Microneedling) to learn more:

Three types of microneedling explained

1. Mechanical microneedling
In mechanical microneedling, a device with small and thin needles is used over the skin to create micro-punctures to the skin. This triggers the skin’s natural repair process to stimulate collagen and elastin creation, and it can improve fine lines, wrinkles, scars, skin texture, and stretch marks.

2. Microneedling with PRP
Microneedling with PRP, also known as “Vampire Facial” that is made popular by Kim Kardashian, simply means microneedling and applying PRP at the same time. PRP contains proteins, including cytokines and proteins, and helps the skin tissue repairs itself. However, microneedling with PRP is not an approved treatment in Singapore.

3. Microneedling with Radiofrequency (RF Microneedling)
A new addition to microneedling treatments, RF Microneedling incorporates RF technology with microneedling to deliver controlled heat to deeper layers of the skin while leaving the surface untouched. This promotes collagen and elastin production which results in skin rejuvenation and brings about a host of benefits for the skin.

The Potenza RF Microneedling with Tiger Tip™ technology uses the RF microneedling technology and stimulates collagen and elastin production to:
• Reduce early signs of ageing
• Firm and tighten skin
• Brighten skin
• Help to achieve a smoother and more radiant complexion

How does Potenza RF Microneedling work?

Firstly, the microneedle tip is placed on the epidermis (top layer of our skin) to penetrate the skin tissue. There are various settings for depth of treatment on Potenza to target different skin concerns.

The micro injuries trigger the body’s natural healing process to regenerate new collagen and elastin and the number of passes to the skin will vary based on the patient’s skin concerns and determine the final result.

How Does Potenza RF Microneedling Works

Monopolar or bipolar RF energy is directly applied to the target area during the treatment to begin remodelling collagen fibres and strengthening elastin fibres.

How Does Potenza RF Microneedling Works

The elastin and collagen building takes place four to six weeks following treatment, with optimal results being visible around 12 weeks after the final treatment.

Who is Potenza RF Microneedling suitable for?

This non-surgical treatment is ideal for patients who would like to avoid the risks and downtime associated with invasive procedures. It is also suitable for darker skin patients who are not suitable for laser treatments.

In conclusion, Potenza RF microneedling is a safe and effective skin rejuvenation treatment and it is now available in Singapore. However, it is also essential to consult your doctors to understand which treatment best suits your needs. With the guidance of medical professionals, patients can safely undergo treatments and achieve optimal results.
