In the past, if anyone said there was an all-in-one treatment that can address multiple issues such as fine lines, wrinkles, spots, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, crepiness, laxity, acne, hyperpigmentation, and scarring, you would dismiss it as a marketing ploy built on empty promises. Not anymore!
Today, Genius® RF Microneedling is a game-changer in the field of modern non-surgical aesthetics practice because it is versatile and offers immediate and long-term benefits by delivering deep thermal energy to the dermis, the inner layer of the skin.
Who is it for?
The best thing about Genius® is that it is an appropriate treatment for everyone regardless of age, skin type or skin color. It is FDA-cleared and indicated for treating:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Scar and acne scarring
- Sagging skin
- Overall aging
- Face rejuvenation
- Neck rejuvenation
If you have mild to moderate nasolabial lines, marionette lines, perioral lines, jowls, and turkey neck, the sheer number of recommended treatments and the costs can be appalling. Cut through the confusion and consider Genius®. In fact, a lot of patients are so pleased with their results and that they have foregone fillers, lasers or surgery.
How Does it Work?
Microneedling used to be the “go-to” procedure for a host of skin issues caused by aging, sun damage, or scarring. Like Microneedling, the Genius® is safe, but it is considered to be more effective because it can deliver energy precisely at the chosen depth and intensity.
It is innovative because its “smart” technology is very sensitive and gives the Provider real-time feedback. The Genius® delivers energy that is consistent and optimized to suit client’s needs based on variables such as:
- Skin type
- Skin color (including tanned skin)
- Sun exposure
- Skin condition/severity of issues
- Skin looseness
The Microneedling component of the Genius® creates micro-wounds that provoke a healing response. The growth factors that are released from the micro-injuries promote collagen and elastin formation, reducing fine lines, wrinkles, and scarring. The RF component levels up the process by delivering energy which heats the deeper layers of the skin. This leads to constriction of the deeper layers, tightening the skin faster and more profoundly.
The results? Reduced skin laxity, diminished jowls, and enhanced skin remodelling! There is real-time feedback throughout the process to control depth, intensity and consistency.
The speed of your results will depend on the state of your skin, severity of issues at the onset of treatment, and how fast your body reacts to the healing process. While results can be seen after one treatment, it may take two or three treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart to reach your beauty goals.
Results are similar to the more ablative fractional lasers but without the trauma, associated downtime and potential adverse effects like burns.
What To Expect
During Treatment: Numbing is applied and the procedure is quiet and painless. Total duration would be about 1 hour.
Post Procedure Care: There will be some redness for 1-2 days post-procedure. In this treatment, your skin is being forced to turn over. You may feel old skin rise to the surface (which can appear as rough, bumpy, or even patterned skin for a few days). In time that will soften and go away, with redness and discomfort that is lesser than a laser treatment or regular Microneedling.
Recovery Period: No downtime — normal activities can be resumed, except for heavy exercise, right after the treatment.
Results are long-lasting and though improvement can be seen after 1 treatment, it is better to have 2-3 treatments scheduled 4 weeks apart.
