What to do before Potenza™ RF Microneedling treatments
RF Microneedling is creating quite a stir in the field of cosmetic dermatology, and for good reasons, too. This cutting-edge treatment combines the benefits of microneedling and radiofrequency to supercharge your skin’s natural renewal process. RF Microneedling can up your skincare game by increasing collagen production and improving skin texture, firmness, elasticity, and more. And when it comes to RF Microneedling tech, not all devices are created equally. Potenza™ RF Microneedling is the most advanced device on the market that offers four different RF modes, meaning treatments are customizable for all skin types to help you reach your unique SkinFitness™ goals.
Before you book your first treatment, you should keep a few things in mind to ensure the best results and a safe experience.
Two weeks before your treatment…
You should avoid prolonged direct sun exposure and tanning beds two weeks before your treatment. You’ll also want to avoid using spray tans and any other kind of self-tanner. If you need to go outside, apply a sunscreen containing an SPF of 30+, like LaserAway Beauty BFF SPF 30+ Broad Spectrum Sunscreen Face & Body, and be sure to wear barrier protection, such as wide-brimmed hats, large sunglasses, and protective clothing when outdoors.
Three days before your treatment…
Three days before your Potenza™ RF Microneedling treatment, you’ll want to discontinue any skincare products that can cause irritation on your skin, like harsh soaps, medicated washes, scrubs, retinols, and peels. Make sure to moisturize your skin with a gentle lotion (we recommend LaserAway Beauty Drenched Peptide Enriched Moisturizer), and drink plenty of water.
The day before your treatment…
The day before your treatment, be sure to shave the areas that are going to be treated in the direction that the hair grows with a new, clean razor (if the area has dense, coarse hair). To reduce irritation, use a moisturizing shaving cream.
The day of your treatment…
On the day of your Potenza™ RF Microneedling treatment, you’ll want to remove any products from the area that’s going to be treated, like makeup, lotion, sunscreen, spray tan, etc. In addition, take off any metal jewelry on or near the treated area. Lastly, cover any tattoos on or near the treatment area with a physical barrier, like a bandaid.
