With aging comes wrinkles, scars, sun damage, and sagging skin, leading patients to seek solutions to refresh and rejuvenate their skin. Loss of elastin and collagen are primary causes of skin laxity, which can diminish the tight, firm appearance your skin once had. Genius® RF is a non-invasive procedure that can help tighten skin and give you a more youthful glow.
What is Genius RF?
It is a skin tightening procedure that harnesses the power of microneedling and controlled radiofrequency to stimulate collagen production and softer, smoother, healthier skin. Genius RF is administered using a handheld applicator that is gently passed over the skin, quickly releasing microneedles and specific radiofrequency energy.
How Does Genius RF Work?
Numbing cream is applied for improved comfort, and then a series of tiny needles quickly puncture the skin creating micro-tears. Although this sounds painful, the needles are incredibly thin and precisely controlled, so you hardly feel anything. The body responds to the micro-tears by signaling a healing response and triggering healthy tissue growth.
As the needles penetrate the skin, they emit radiofrequency energy that encourages collagen and elastin production and smooths existing collagen for more uniform coverage. Dr. Sikorski can adjust how deep the needles go to reach the ideal layers of skin, which promotes healing and allows customization for each patient’s needs and skin concerns.
Who is an Ideal Candidate for Genius RF?
Genius RF is safe for all skin types and skin tones, making it an excellent option for many patient. The treatment can be done on the face and on the neck, chest, abdomen, and thighs. It is not recommended for individuals who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have an active skin infection.
If you are in good overall health, but your skin is showing signs of aging and beginning to sag, Genius RF may help give you a firmer skin contour and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
What Areas of Concern Does Genius RF Address?
You may benefit from Genius RF if you have skin imperfections such as:
- Deep creases
- Sagging skin
- Age spots
- Acne scars
- Stretch marks
- Uneven skin texture
- Enlarged pores
How Long Does It Take to Heal from Genius RF?
Your skin may be slightly pink and sensitive for a day or two after treatment, but it will fade on its own. Also, there is little downtime, and most of the healing occurs from the inside out. You should refrain from wearing makeup for the first 24 hours.
You may notice some changes in your skin over the next few days as it heals from the microneedling and tissue repair takes place, but it can take a couple of weeks for new collagen to form and visibly tighten skin. It may take more than one treatment to achieve your desired results, with each session about a month apart.
