What are stretch marks?
Stretch marks are markings that often appear on the skin during periods of rapid growth or weight gain. When the skin stretches too quickly, the collagen and elastin fibers that support it can break, resulting in stretch marks. There are many different types of stretch marks, each with its own causes and characteristics. Some are permanent while others fade over time. At the time of development, they usually appear pink, red, purple, or dark brown depending upon the skin colour.
Why do we get them?
Stretch marks are a common occurrence, especially for women. They can happen during puberty, pregnancy, or even weight gain. While they may be a cosmetic issue for some, others may find them to be a source of insecurity. Stretch marks are not just a problem for women. Men can also get them, especially if they are overweight or as a result of bodybuilding training and muscle gain. These marks tend to fade over time, but for some people, they may never completely disappear.
What are the most common areas for stretch marks?
The most common areas for stretch marks are the stomach, thighs, buttocks, hips, and breasts. Stretch marks are most likely to occur in areas where the skin is stretched beyond its normal capacity.
What are the most effective skin procedures for stretch marks?
Fortunately, there is a number of different treatments available that can help reduce the appearance of stretch marks like microdermabrasion, chemical peels, light or laser treatments, and radiofrequency microneedling.
Which RF microneedling is best for stretch marks?
There are many types of RF microneedling available on the market today, so it can be difficult to know which one is right for you. Potenza Radiofrequency Microneedling is the best as it’s a new standard in micro-needling, and it offers many benefits for those looking to improve the appearance of their skin.
What is Potenza radiofrequency microneedling skin rejuvenation procedure and how it works?
Microneedling is also called skin needling or collagen induction therapy. It refers to a treatment that stimulates your body to produce collagen and elastin.
RF (radio-frequency) is a wave, a form of energy, that is not light-based like a laser. This energy has the ability to heat the skin down to the deeper layer which enhances the effects of standard microneedling.
In contrast to RF Microneedling, the Dermapen Microneedling does not deliver radio frequency into the deeper layer.
Potenza radio frequency microneedling is a new advanced method of skin rejuvenation in microneedling. It is suited for a broad range of skin tightening and tone improvement on all skin types & colours.
It uses radiofrequency energy with ultrafine needles that deliver heat into the collagen fibres causing thermal damage and stimulating a wound healing response, that tightens deeper layers of skin and not just the surface layer.
This stimulates the body’s natural healing process to encourage collagen production in the dermis which can benefit common skin issues.
Skin health depends on collagen and elastin, and their production decreases with age.
The Potenza CYNOSURE device takes micro-needling to a new level with its advanced 4-mode RF technology.
This process stimulates the repair process for scarring and increases your body’s natural production of collagen and elastin resulting in improvements in skin laxity.
Potenza can help improve the appearance of both superficial and deep skin conditions. This includes skin rejuvenation on advanced signs of aging, loose facial skin, open pores, brighten dull skin or lacklustre skin, stretch marks, lines & deep wrinkles, or acne scarring.
Using this treatment, you can achieve firmer, clearer, blemish-free, more lifted skin through the regeneration of collagen and elastin.
Can Potenza Radiofrequency Microneedling help remove stretch marks?
Yes, Potenza Radiofrequency Microneedling is a new, minimally-invasive procedure that is a great solution to remove stretch marks. This procedure uses tiny needles to create micro-wounds in the skin, which in turn stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin.
When to expect results after the Potenza treatment?
A series of treatments may be necessary to see optimal results, but many patients are reporting a significant improvement in the appearance of their stretch marks after just a few sessions.
This treatment helps your natural skin tone normalise.
After treatment, you will notice an immediate decrease in the appearance of your stretch marks, a reduction in the appearance of pores, and an overall improvement in the skin texture.
Since the elastin and collagen typically take 4-6 weeks to build up after treatment, depending on the skin concerns, for the best results we recommend a minimum of 2-6 treatments, at 4-6week intervals.
Is there downtime needed after the Potenza RF Microneedling treatment?
There is little to no downtime needed after the Potenza Radiofrequency Microneedling treatment. You may experience some redness and swelling, but this should subside within a few hours. You can resume your normal activities immediately after the procedure.

Roxana White here, the nurse practitioner at Hannah London. I’m here today with Sarah. One of our lovely patients as a 34-year-old woman that came in with quite a loose stomach after having two children stretch marks and so on. Not very good laxity. However, we’ve introduced her to a course of three to six Potenzas.
This is her first after her first session having one treatment with four millimeters deep long needle. Now our Potenza machine is specifically designed to treat this kind of bodily issues or on the face and so on. Especially something like saggy skin, loose skin, loose muscles, and so on. So today I am going to have a little chat with Sarah and see where we are and how she feels after her first session.
So, Sarah, how are you today?
I’m good. Thank you. How are you?
Excellent. I’m very well, very well. So tell me a little bit about how you felt after you had your first treat.
Felt very good. Obviously, I felt the heat and I was left with obviously some swelling and bruising, which you did say would be normal. But after that felt absolutely fine.
Excellent. And the downtime, how long did it take you to recover from the redness and bruising?
Well, I followed protocol, like you said, of the aftercare and it was about three, four days. The swelling and bruising came down and I was fine after that.
So ideally we recommend this Sara to not put anything on her skin, not to shower with hot water, if necessary to cool down with a little bit of obviously a cold flannel or a little bit of ice if necessary. Alternatively, also to put some arnica. Arnica brings all the bruising at the surface and it speeds up recovery. Now. Pain wise. How did you feel about it during treatment and after treatment?
Okay. So during treatment, as you said, some areas be a little more sensitive. So obviously were mostly, we’re close to the bony area I felt it a bit more compared to the flesh. But I would say the pain is bearable. It’s uncomfortable, but it’s bearable.
Now we have to bear in mind that Sara did not, use any numbing cream. Not using numbing cream means that the blood doesn’t get suppressed, we get a bit of spotting. It’s a better way to achieve a stronger result. However, we highly recommend, for pain tolerance and so on to obviously use some numbing cream. A topical cream is usually used in the circumstance but as I said, Sarah did not use her. So overall, how do you feel about the treatment? I mean, I can see the laxity is a little bit tighter. Stretch marks are not as visible as before. How do you feel about where you are?
I feel amazing. Cause as you said, it’s improving the appearance of stretch marks and also the texture I find the texture of the skin is improved significantly. I know it’s only been after the one session but I can really see significant improvement. I just can’t wait to see what it’ll be like after the course is terminated.
Excellent. So the course will be space six weeks apart. We do recommend drinking plenty of water and flushing your system after this kind of treatment really helps. It helps like you said the appearance and the feel of the skin and also the healing process. With that in mind, Sarah, your next appointment is this afternoon so we will set you up now.
Thank you for listening to us. This is Roxana at Hannah London. Thank you. Thank you. Take care.
