C ynosure brings the latest in RF microneedling technology to the UK with the launch of its Fusion Tip, the newest addition to its best-in-class Potenza™ radiofrequency (RF) microneedling system. With its dual-air chamber design, the Fusion Tip captures and releases air towards the skin with each pulse, enhancing the penetration of topicals into the skin by 67% for maximum results.

“We’re constantly challenging ourselves to drive innovation forward and deliver differentiated technologies that allow our customers to provide better, more customisable treatments for their patients,” says Todd Tillemans, chief executive officer of Cynosure.

“The Fusion Tip is the first and only RF microneedling tip on the market designed to enhance the penetration of topicals deeper into the dermis, improving the quality of the skin. This is a real gamechanger for RF microneedling and we’re proud to be at the forefront of this next-level technology.”

The Fusion Tip is the latest addition to Cynosure’s Potenza system, the world’s first four-mode RF microneedling device, which uses ultrafine needles and radiofrequency energy to penetrate the top layer of the skin, triggering the body’s natural healing process to regenerate new collagen and elastin.

Unlike other treatments on the market, Potenza treatments can be performed on all skin types, anywhere on the body and any time of year. Now with the single-use, disposable Fusion Tip, practitioners can maximise topical penetration while tightening the skin through soft-tissue coagulation, revolutionising the standard microneedling treatment.

“Potenza’s new Fusion Tip enables me to confidently deliver topicals deeper in the dermis, allowing me to reach where it matters most,” says Dr Deanne Mraz Robinson of Modern Dermatology in Westport, Connecticut, US. “By enhancing the penetration of topicals into the skin, I am able to maximise patient results.”

Of the Potenza system’s four modes (monopolar or bipolar, delivered at either 1 MHz or 2 MHz frequency), the Fusion Tip operates in monopolar at 1 MHz for deep and wide RF delivery and enhanced tissue engagement and topical penetration.

While three to five treatments at roughly four-to-six weeks apart are recommended, patients may notice improvements in their skin after the first or second treatment and will continue to see improvements six to 12 months post-treatment.

The Fusion Tip is commercially available in the U.K and only compatible with Cynosure’s Potenza device.
