Potenza Treatment for Acne in Korea
Sebum production increases during the summer due to the high temperature and humidity. This causes the pores to enlarge and break outs to occur, which worsen the skin. UV rays cause freckles and dark spots, and also decreases the skin’s elasticity. This leads to frequent visits to the dermatology clinic.
Recently, “Potenza” has been called a “miracle laser” for acne treatment at dermatology clinics in Seoul. POTENZA® is a laser that injects micro needles and delivers radiofrequency (RF) energy into the dermis. Using the principle of the heat generated by the load or contact resistance coagulates the tissue, the energy is selectively delivered to different skin layers depending on the condition of the skin. As the tissue coagulates, it produces new collagen and regenerates the skin. It can help treat acne, acne scars, pores, and also improve skin texture.

2. Potenza Laser Needle Types and Effects
The tip for Potenza can be selected according to the treatment purpose. Customized treatment can be carried out according to the skin type, skin concerns, and skin conditions etc. Potenza laser has 14 types of tips; non-invasive RF (3 Tips), and Invasive (11 Tips). The invasive RF tip injects micro needles into the skin and delivers RF energy deep into the skin layer.
■Acne related skin conditions: ‘ONE needle tip’ that target sebaceous glands
■Skin regeneration effects: ‘Insulated needle tip’ that does not irritate the skin layer and selectively inputs energy deep into the skin
■Skin remodeling: The 'non insulated tip' administers energy into shallow and deep layers of the skin.
■When doing skin booster: ‘Pumping mode tip’ that injects the solution evenly and deep into the dermis
■When delivering strong energy: By using a needless, non-invasive tip, there will be no damage to the skin layer while the energy will be delivered deep into the skin.
3. Effect of Potenza

: Sebum production is balanced by coagulating the sebaceous glands. This improves acne, and helps reduce pores.
Improves blood vessels
:The blood vessels near the skin will be coagulated. It helps improve facial redness and facial complexion due to blood vessels.
:The old coagulated collagen is discharged out of the body and new collagen is formed. This helps improve skin elasticity and wrinkles.
Double chin reduction
:Coagulates the fat cells on areas with a lot of fat such as the cheeks, jaw, etc. This decreases volume and the double chin so that improvements can be seen for the face line.
