Genius RF Microneedling
Genius RF Microneedling is an advanced collagen stimulation treatment that combines the benefits of microneedling with radiofrequency energy to eradicate wrinkles and enhance skin texture and firmness.
Genius RF micro-needling is non-invasive and minimally painful, providing dramatic improvements of the skin with minimal downtime.
The Genius system uses ultrafine needles to create controlled damage to the skin, producing a series of tiny punctures on the skin’s surface. Fractional radiofrequency heat is simultaneously delivered to deep layers of the skin through the micro-needle created punctures, which act as delivery channels. These combined efforts stimulate the skin’s collagen and elastic production, resulting in more youthful appearing skin.
What are the benefits of Radiofrequency microneedling?
The Genius RF system utilizes an advanced collagen induction technique that results in the creation of more elastin and collagen. Increasing the levels of these anti-aging skin proteins results in numerous improvements to the health and appearance of the skin.
Genius has the ability to improve or correct numerous skin issues including:
- Lines and wrinkles
- Skin laxity (sagging)
- Sun damage
- Age spots
- Scarring (including acne scarring)
- Skin texture issues
- Overly large pores
- Stretch marks
How does Genius RF Microneedling differ from regular micro-needling?
The addition of advanced radiofrequency energy stimulates higher levels of skin improving proteins and enzymes like collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid compared to microneedling alone. Genius also uses a sophisticated handpiece which analyzes the skin as it passes, allowing for changes in needle penetration depth to account for differences in skin characteristics like thickness or roughness. This enables microneedling to be truly customized to the needs of each individual area of the patient’s skin.
How is a Genius RF Microneedling performed?
The procedure starts with the topical application of numbing cream to the treatment area to minimize any discomfort. Once numb, a specialized applicator delivering energized microneedles is passed across the area, creating 3mm punctures into the skin. The same applicator delivers radiofrequency energy into the skin as it passes. A serum can also be applied to the treatment area at the end of the procedure in order to help soothe and calm the skin.
How long does the treatment take?
While treatment times can vary depending on the size of the treatment area, most Genius treatments take around 30 minutes to complete.
Am I a good candidate?
Genius RF Microneedling can be used on all skin types and skin tones. The procedure is safe for any healthy individuals who are not pregnant, breastfeeding, or experiencing an active skin infection.
Can Genius RF Microneedling be performed on all areas of the skin?
The Genius handpiece can be swept over any area of the body. The most common treatment areas include the face, neck, chest, abdomen, knees, and thighs.
Can Genius be combined with other cosmetic treatments?
RF microneedling can be combined with many other cosmetic treatments to rejuvenate the skin. The puncture channels created through the treatment are great delivery agents for topical agents like platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and hyaluronic acid. Other cosmetic treatments like Botox, fillers, chemical peels, and laser treatments can also be added to achieve the patient’s final desired result.
