Kim Kardashian frequently documents her trips to see skincare experts for professional facials and non-surgical treatments. She’s now turning to a new form of radiofrequency microneedling for help with another complexion concern – pigmentation.
Talking to her 247 million Instagram followers, the 40 year old admits to suffering from “dark spots and sun spots”, and is hoping that a series of Potenza laser sessions will reduce the appearance of them.
“Hey guys, so I’m here with Dr Ghavami and we have been doing a series of Potenza laser on my face. I’m so excited because I really do have sun spots and dark spots and it takes them all away,” she says, showing herself at the clinic.
The Potenza treatment is meant to target blemishes (like discolouration and sun spots) on the skin, and tighten and firm the complexion. It does this with tiny needles that puncture the top layer of the skin, stimulating the body’s natural healing process. The radiofrequency energy then stimulates collagen and elastin production with repeat sessions.
Kim’s chosen clinician is Beverly Hills-based plastic surgeon Dr Ashkan Ghavami, who usually specialises in rhinoplasty and facial surgery. A quick scan through his Instagram shows he’s been using Potenza on other clients in the past few months, including Kim’s long-time BFF Steph Shep.

Steph can be seen in a short Instagram video having the treatment done on her face, with Dr Ghavami focusing on her chin and jawline area where she claims to have stubborn marks from breakouts.
If you want to keep up with Kim and give Potenza a go, you’ll have to wait for it to launch in the UK (hopefully soon, as it’s all FDA approved). But if you’re looking for another way to reduce pigmentation on your face in the meantime, you could try Amanda Holden’s favourite treatment, Morpheus 8, which also uses a similar combination of microneedling and radiofrequency to target blemishes and volume loss.
Kim’s trip to see Dr Ghavami comes shortly after speculation surrounding her supposed bum filler being removed. Surgeon Mark Ho-Asjoe exclusively told OK! he believes the star has had some work done to reduce the size of her bum.
"Either she has had butt implants taken out or she has had filler dissolved or liposuction to reduce the size of her bottom," he said.
Whatever Kim has or hasn’t had done, we think it’s working pretty well for her and she’s looking better than ever.
