The innovative Genius® RF Microneedling procedure is a hybridised treatment that puts together two advanced methodologies designed to enhance the skin’s appearance and produce a firmer, healthier skin. Radiofrequency energy delivered deep into the skin via tiny microneedles can trigger the body’s natural healing response, allowing the skin to renew itself and create healthier surface layers. Genius® RF Microneedling can help many individuals reduce common signs of time, sun and environmental effects, loose skin to name a few, by revitalising the skin’s healing properties and creating smoother healthier skin.
What Are the Benefits of Genius® RF Microneedling?
The combination of radiofrequency energy and skin microneedling techniques opens up an array of potential benefits for both women and men who would like to enhance their appearance. Genius® RF Microneedling can be effective on a broad range of skin types and numerous body areas. This treatment can:
- Improve skin firmness and smoothness
- Minimise signs of inelasticity and “crepey” skin
- Reduce signs of fine lines and wrinkles
- Improve skin tone and texture
- Reduce signs of large pores
- Improve areas affected by sun damage, brown spots, and discolouration
- Improve signs for a brighter complexion
- Diminish signs of stretch marks or mild scarring
During your initial consultation, we can evaluate your skin and determine whether Genius® RF Microneedling is the right option for your needs and goals. This treatment can often serve as a pre-treatment or maintenance treatment to facelift or neck lift procedures, or for patients who may not be ready for or wanting surgery at this stage.
What Does the Genius® RF Microneedling Treatment Involve?
Genius® RF Microneedling treatments are customised for each patient to achieve the best possible results. The procedure can be performed right here in our clinic and typically does not take longer than about 40 minutes to one hour to complete; however, this will depend on the extent of treatment and individual goals. The Genius® RF Microneedling handpiece will be delicately guided over the targeted area of treatment. The handpiece delivers radiofrequency energy through small perforations in the skin made by the microneedling device, which enables the skin to begin repairing itself by gently heating the tissue and stimulating the growth of elastin and collagen.
Genius® RF Microneedling is performed using a topical anesthetic applied to the skin just before the procedure to minimise the potential for pain. As patients have different pain thresholds and responses to treatment, we recommend you arrive at your appointment well hydrated and relaxed.
Is There a Recovery Period Necessary After Genius® RF Microneedling Treatment?
Genius® RF Microneedling is minimally invasive and does not involve major surgery; therefore, most patients do not require a recovery period after treatment. Some redness and sensitivity can be expected in the treatment area; however, these effects should only be temporary. With that in mind, patients are advised to maximise protection from sunlight throughout the healing process. Most individuals can resume normal daily routines immediately after Genius® RF Microneedling treatment. The results of this procedure should become more and more noticeable over the next four weeks, with continued improvement in the months that follow as collagen and elastin progressively replenish the skin. In some cases, we may recommend a series of Genius® RF Microneedling treatments to achieve the desired goals.
