The disposable microneedling Fusion Tip is designed to maximize topical penetration while tightening skin through soft tissue coagulation.
Cynosure has announced the U.S. launch of its Fusion Tip, the newest addition to its 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, according to the company.
“We’re constantly challenging ourselves to drive innovation forward and deliver differentiated technologies that allow our customers to provide better, more customizable treatments for their patients,” said 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 your skin. This is a real game changer for RF microneedling and we’re proud to be at the forefront of this next-level technology.”
The Fusion Tip device 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. The company also reports that 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 maximize topical penetration while tightening the skin through soft tissue coagulation, which improves on 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,” said Deanne Mraz Robinson, MD, FAAD, of Modern Dermatology in Westport, Conn. “By enhancing the penetration of topicals into the skin, I am able to maximize 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. The company also advises that 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.
