Genius - RF Microneedling Treatment
Genius is a radio-frequency (RF) micro-needling treatment. It works by delivering radio-frequency energy through gold-plated needles, stimulating your own body’s collagen and elastin production. By providing “real-time” feedback, the energy delivered is precise for each patient, each treatment, and each pass with the microneedles.
Radio-frequency energy heats the tissue to stimulate subdermal collagen production in order to reduce the appearance of fine lines, scarring, and loose skin.
Genius induces tissue remodeling with the production of new collagen and elastin to provide an alternative to a facelift and other cosmetic surgeries.

Q: How does the treatment feel?
A: A numbing cream will be applied an hour prior to the treatment to maximize your comfort level but your physician will discuss with you the most appropriate methods to alleviate any discomfort. You will feel the heat and some pressure. Compared with other resurfacing methods, many find this RF micro-needling treatment to be much more tolerable.
Q: How long is the downtime?
A: There are an initial redness and swelling which substantially subsides after around 24 hours. Most people resume normal activities within 48 hours.
Q: How long will my results last?
A: Unlike many other procedures, Genius has long-lasting results since it is your own body that is at work. The effects could last for years.
Q: How long before I see results?
A: You can expect to see some changes as soon as a day or two after the procedure. However, your body will continue to rebuild the collagen and elastin for several weeks after that, so you will see improvement over the next six months.
Q: How long does the treatment take and how many treatments will I need?
A: Depending on the area being treated, treatment can take as little as 15 minutes. Your physician will discuss your goals which will determine the length and number of treatments you will need. Many see results after just 1 treatment but we often recommend up to 3 treatments to get optimal results.
