With aging comes wrinkles, scars, sun damage, and sagging skin, leading Orange County 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.
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 patients in Orange County. 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.
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.
