Genius® RF Skin Rejuvenation

Genius RF Skin RejuvenationCollagen and elastin production drops as we age, which can lead to a range of skin problems. Discoloration, wrinkling and sagging or jowling are all common aspects of aged skin. The Genius® platform from Lutronic precisely transmits radiofrequency waves into the skin to encourage collagen and elastin production. This helps you achieve tighter, more youthful looking skin without surgery or significant downtime.

Best Candidates for Genius RF Treatments

Candidates for Genius treatments should be in good overall health with realistic expectations for their results. We can treat both men or women who have signs of aging including sagging skin, creases and wrinkles, skin discoloration, and poor skin tone. Genius treatments can even achieve a “nonsurgical facelift” by tightening the skin along the jawline and neck.

We have experience treating a full range of cosmetic concerns with today’s leading non-surgical options. Depending on your needs, we may recommend additional rejuvenation treatments, such as PRP facial rejuvenation or laser skin resurfacing. To help maintain your more youthful looking skin, we can provide a custom ALASTIN Skincare® kit for at-home use.

Real Patient Results

What to Expect

Before your Genius treatment, we apply a topical numbing cream on the treatment area to maximize comfort. During treatment, patients feel some pressure and heat on their skin as the handpiece is moved over the treatment area. This handpiece administers thermal energy deep into the skin in targeted locations. This energy encourages your body to increase production of new skin tissue, which is firmer and smoother than the skin it replaces.

Recovery & Results

Expect to have some redness and swelling in the treatment area which should fade over the next 3 to 7 days. You can resume your normal activities 24 hours after treatment, but avoid applying makeup for 48 hours.

Your results will gradually develop over the following several weeks and months. You should notice your skin becoming firmer, tighter and more toned. You may notice a decrease in folds or sagging, helping you appear younger and more refreshed.

Genius RF Skin Rejuvenation FAQs

Q. How many Genius treatments will I need?
Most people have 3 treatments spaced 6 weeks apart. A single treatment may be sufficient for very mild signs of aging. We also encourage periodic maintenance treatments to help the skin continue to look refreshed.
Q. Is the treatment painful?
Because we apply a topical numbing cream to the skin before using the Genius device, you shouldn’t experience pain during or after the procedure. You may, however, feel a heating sensation and some mild discomfort. Ask us if you’re considering taking a painkiller before your procedure.
Q. How do I know if I should get Genius treatments or plastic surgery?
Whether you should have nonsurgical or surgical facial rejuvenation depends on the extent of facial aging you are experiencing and your desired results. Even if you are having surgery, Genius treatments can help to improve skin tone and texture, which surgery by itself cannot achieve.
Q. What’s the difference between Genius treatments and microneedling?
Skinpen® microneedling treatments also rejuvenate the skin using small needles to stimulate healing, similar to the Genius device. However, the Genius device emits radiofrequency energy, allowing a deeper penetration into the dermis. For this reason, Genius treatments can deliver more dramatic results than microneedling treatments.
Q. How soon will I be able to go to events and look normal?
Side effects following a Genius treatment should fade within about a week after your appointment. With a little makeup, many people can even attend parties and events within a few days without looking as if they’ve had anything done. If you are having this treatment in anticipation of an event, it is best to have it several months ahead of time so your results can be visible.
