Cynosure's Potenza is a four-mode radiofrequency (RF) device that allows for a variety of customized treatments. The monopolar mode delivers deep healing and skin tightening through soft tissue coagulation. The bipolar mode utilizes concentrated energy to improve superficial tissue and reduce unwanted pigmentation. The machine uses ultrafine needles and heat to penetrate the top layer of the skin and trigger the body's natural healing process to regenerate new collagen and elastin. The elastin and collagen building typically take place four to six weeks after treatment, with optimal results usually seen at 12 weeks after treatment.
