Skin Revitalization Q & A
What is skin revitalization?
Skin revitalization is a minimally invasive cosmetic treatment that rejuvenates your skin and enhances its appearance. With skin revitalization, you can:
- Treat sagging skin to make it more tight and firm
- Reduce common signs of aging, like wrinkles
- Minimize the presence of blemishes
- Improve uneven skin tone or texture
- Reduce the appearance of large pores
Skin revitalization enables you to unleash your skin’s natural potential, and it does so with just a few quick and easy treatments.
How does skin revitalization work?
The Stella Med Spa at Nurture Women’s Health offers skin revitalization treatments using Potenza™ by Cynosure®, which is one of the most trusted radiofrequency microneedling devices on the market.
Microneedling is the process of using ultrafine needles to penetrate the top layer of your skin. These tiny penetrations stimulate your body’s natural healing factors without actually damaging your skin, which causes a release of growth factors and collagen production in the treated area.
On its own, microneedling is an excellent way to revitalize your skin, but Potenza also uses radiofrequency energy to safely heat up the skin in your treatment area. This stimulates even more collagen release and helps tighten your tissue as well.
What are the advantages of radiofrequency microneedling?
Radiofrequency (RF) microneedling is a popular alternative to other skin revitalization techniques, like laser resurfacing treatments or chemical peels. Unlike those other treatments, RF microneedling doesn’t damage your skin, making your recovery time significantly shorter. It’s also a quicker treatment, more cost-effective, and has a very low risk of side effects.
What happens when I get skin revitalization?
When you get skin revitalization at The Stella Med Spa at Nurture Women’s Health, your provider first cleanses the surface of your skin and applies a topical anesthetic. Then, they press the Potenza device to your skin, rolling it over your treatment area. The whole process typically takes about 45 minutes, but treatment time may vary.
There’s no downtime with skin revitalization, but your skin will be red immediately after the treatment. You can typically return to work within a day, but skin redness might last for up to a week.
How long does it take to see the results of skin revitalization?
Within 4-6 weeks, your skin will begin to build new elastin and collagen. You should see optimal results about 12 weeks after your treatment, and you can expect your results to last for a very long time.
