Facial rejuvenation with Potenza Radio Frequency (RF) Microneedling


As a 29-year-old content creator and bride-to-be, I have always been conscious of my skin's appearance and strived to maintain a youthful, radiant complexion. After extensive research and consultations with Dr Terence Tan at Halley Medical Aesthetics, I decided to try Potenza Radio Frequency (RF) Microneedling in Singapore, a cutting-edge treatment known for its skin rejuvenation, tightening, and acne-reducing properties. In this write-up, I will share my personal experience with Potenza RF Microneedling and the remarkable results it brought about.

Potenza Radio Frequency (RF) Microneedling is a versatile anti-ageing facial rejuvenation treatment that stimulates the fibroblasts in our skin to generate collage and elastin for more youthful skin. Potenza is a US FDA-approved non-surgical treatment that has minimal downtime, and it has gained popularity in Singapore

How does Potenza RF Microneedling work?

Potenza uses ultrafine microneedles to safely and effectively deliver RF energy into the face, neck, and around the eye area in a controlled and precise manner. Its patented tip releases the RF energy at two different depths:
  • Monopolar RF: This RF wave delivers uniform heat at a controlled depth to deeper levels of the skin
  • Bipolar RF: This RF wave delivers thermal energy at a more concentrated but superficial dermal layer to achieve overall skin revitalisation.
By combining the use of these two RF waves, Potenza can treat different skin concerns, and is thus a versatile and highly customisable treatment. To ensure smooth and uninterrupted flow of RF energy, a grounding pad is also used during treatment.

Potenza RF Microneedling’s Treatment Process

My journey with Potenza RF Microneedling began with a thorough consultation with Dr Terence Tan, the Founder and Medical Director of Halley Body Slimming Clinic and Halley Medical Aesthetics. During the session, we discussed my concerns, including skin rejuvenation, tightening, and acne. Dr Terence Tan explained how Potenza RF Microneedling works by utilizing radiofrequency energy and micro-needles to create controlled damage and stimulate collagen and elastin production in the skin.

On the day of the treatment, I arrived at the clinic with a mixture of excitement and anticipation. After cleansing my face, a topical numbing cream was applied to ensure a comfortable experience. Once the numbing took effect, Dr Terence Tan started the Potenza RF Microneedling procedure.

The handheld device was gently moved across my skin, delivering tiny, ultra-fine needles that created microchannels. These channels allowed for the penetration of radiofrequency energy, which reached the deeper layers of my skin, kickstarting the rejuvenation process. Throughout the treatment, I experienced minimal discomfort, and clinic assistant ensured that I was comfortable at all times.

Enhancing Potenza RF Microneedling with Serum Infusion

As the skin has been punctured by microneedles, this leaves the skin prepped for absorbing serums more deeply and not just on a superficial level. Serum infusions can also address specific skin concerns and help to accelerate skin healing. Hence I opt to add-on infusion of the Rejuran boosters serums right after my Potenza treatment.

Rejuran Serum is a skincare product that contains polydeoxyribonucleotide (PDRN), a compound derived from salmon DNA. PDRN has been shown to have various skin rejuvenating and healing properties. When used in skincare, Rejuran Serum can complement Potenza RF Microneedling by enhancing the overall results and promoting skin healing and regeneration.

Here's how Rejuran Serum can complement Potenza RF Microneedling:

Enhanced Skin Rejuvenation: Potenza RF Microneedling stimulates collagen and elastin production, which helps rejuvenate the skin. By incorporating Rejuran Serum into your skincare routine after the treatment, you can further enhance the rejuvenating effects. Rejuran Serum's PDRN promotes cell growth, boosts collagen synthesis, and improves skin elasticity, leading to improved texture, tone, and overall skin health.

Accelerated Healing: Potenza RF Microneedling creates controlled micro-injuries in the skin, triggering a healing response that stimulates collagen production. Rejuran Serum aids in the healing process by promoting tissue repair and reducing inflammation. It can help speed up the recovery time after the microneedling treatment, allowing you to enjoy the results sooner.

Reduced Downtime: Potenza RF Microneedling typically has minimal downtime, but some individuals may experience slight redness or mild irritation after the procedure. Rejuran Serum's soothing and healing properties can help alleviate these side effects, reducing downtime and allowing you to resume your regular activities more quickly.

Long-term Results Maintenance: Potenza RF Microneedling provides long-lasting results, but maintaining and prolonging these effects require a good skincare routine. Rejuran Serum can be used regularly as part of your skincare regimen to support the longevity of the microneedling results. Its ability to enhance collagen synthesis and promote skin regeneration can help maintain the skin's youthful appearance over time

Benefits of Potenza RF Microneedling

Rejuvenates the skin: Following my Potenza RF Microneedling session, I noticed a significant improvement in the overall texture and appearance of my skin. It appeared fresher, plumper, and more youthful, giving me a renewed sense of confidence.

Minimizes pores: Enlarged pores had been a concern of mine, but after the treatment, I observed a reduction in their size. This made my skin look smoother and more refined.

Reduces fine lines and wrinkles: The stimulation of collagen and elastin production resulted in a noticeable reduction in fine lines and wrinkles. My skin looked firmer and more toned, lending a more youthful appearance.

Lifts and tightens the skin: One of the most impressive aspects of Potenza RF Microneedling was its ability to lift and tighten the skin. This provided a subtle yet noticeable improvement in facial contours and contributed to a more defined and youthful look.

Improves acne and acne scars: As someone who had battled with acne in the past, I was delighted to see the positive impact of Potenza RF Microneedling on my skin's condition. The treatment helped to minimize active acne, reduce redness, and improve the appearance of acne scars, creating a more even complexion.

Improves melasma and rosacea: Potenza RF Microneedling also demonstrated effectiveness in improving skin conditions such as melasma and rosacea. It helped to reduce pigmentation irregularities and even out skin tone, resulting in a more balanced complexion.

Post-treatment Care

Minimal post-treatment care is needed. However, the skin may be red after the treatment. This is normal and generally takes a day to go away. Small needle marks may also be visible but they will also be resolved quickly.

Two to four monthly sessions are recommended for optimal results, while results are optimal two to three months after the last treatment.


My experience with Potenza RF Microneedling was nothing short of remarkable. The treatment not only addressed my concerns regarding skin rejuvenation, tightening, and acne but exceeded my expectations in delivering noticeable and long-lasting results. The overall cost of $1,300 for a single session (price before GST) may seem significant, but considering the transformative effects on my skin, it was undoubtedly a worthwhile investment.
