Procedure Genius RF

Genius RF Microneedling is a treatment that leverages energy to add volume to the skin. It merges the advantages of microneedling with radiofrequency energy, effectively eliminating wrinkles and improving the texture and elasticity of the skin.

Genius RF is an innovative collagen stimulation treatment that is non-invasive and delivers major results. Radiofrequency microneedling provides dramatic improvements to the skin with minimal downtime.

How Does RF Microneedling Work?

Microneedling procedures use ultrafine needles to cause microscopic injuries in the skin. This stimulates a healing response within the skin’s tissues, which can resolve a wide variety of imperfections.

RF microneedling procedures incorporate radiofrequency (RF) energy, also known as Fractional radiofrequency. This energy generates heat that is directly transferred to the skin’s deeper layers through the tiny openings created by the microneedles, serving as delivery pathways. This dual action triggers the production of collagen and elastin in the skin, rendering it more youthful in appearance.

How Genius Boosts Skin Volume

Aging or scarring often leads to a reduction in tissue volume, making wrinkles or skin imperfections more noticeable. Genius works by encouraging the production of collagen and initiating new collagen formation. This results in skin that not only appears smoother but also healthier.

How to Prepare

One of the best things about Genius RF is that there is little preparation required. Before your appointment, wash your face with a mild cleanser. Do not apply any makeup, lotion, or other topical products.

You should avoid applying irritating skin care products, including exfoliating products and retinoids, for at least four days before your session. You should also avoid sun exposure in the weeks leading up to your appointment.

Genius RF Microneedling FAQs

Genius RF Microneedling goes much deeper into the skin, allowing it to tighten the skin more than other technologies. This full-body treatment can dissolve unwanted fat, lift the face, address crepey skin on the stomach, and reduce scars. It can be used on face, neck, decollete, loose arm skin, front and back of legs, and stomach. A series of 3 treatments is suggested for best results. 

You can anticipate the effects to last two to three years. Follow-up annual maintenance sessions will help you keep a high rate of new collagen production.

You do not need frequent Genius RF sessions to show major results. Initially, you will need two to three sessions to see your desired outcome. From there, you can have maintenance sessions once per year, depending on the concern that is being treated. 

A Genius RF microneedling session typically takes around 2 hours; the first hour is spent numbing, and then 30 to 60 minutes for the actual treatment time, depending on the body area being treated. 

There’s no completely painless or discomfort-free method that effectively stimulates the body to produce new collagen. However, we apply a topical anesthetic that is quite effective. Additionally, we employ sophisticated numbing techniques to enhance your comfort during the procedure. These include the use of lidocaine for nerve blocking and/or Pro-Nox™.
