Genius skin resurfacing
The Genius skin resurfacing is FDA approved and uses advanced Radiofrequency Microneedle technology to rejuvenate and tighten your skin from within.
The Genius Intelligent RF delivery system is versatile and is designed to customize individual treatments for:
What makes the Genius skin resurfacing treatment distinctive is the technology behind it. Thermal energy is conducted to the dermis via micro-insulated needles. Precise energy is delivered and calibrated in real time during the procedure. The novel Intelligent RF delivery system uses AI technology that takes into account your skin type, age and skin thickness to deliver accurate energy regardless of tissue resistance.
How Does Genius RF Microneedling Work?
The Genius skin resurfacing treatment creates thousands of micro-coagulation zones per treatment. This coagulation results in collagen and elastin regeneration to improve your skin texture, wrinkles and laxity.
Thermal energy for coagulation is delivered at multiple depths within your skin. One of the salient features is the use of the insulated microneedle, which spares the top layer of the skin and delivers precise energy to the deep dermal layers only. This is in contrast with traditional fractional ablative laser devices where the laser beam will destroy both layers of the skin. (Therefore, the Genius RF system is safer in all skin types, including darker skin phototypes.)
Which Areas Can Be Treated?
The Genius skin resurfacing treatment is most suitable for individuals with mild to moderate skin laxity and wrinkling. Individuals who desire a more rejuvenated, lifted and natural look will find the Genius RF micro-needle treatment suitable.
Common treatment areas include:
- Brows and Under-eye
- Cheeks and Jowls
- Neck and chest
Why Genius Is Different
There are various radio-frequency treatment platforms in the market. While many will come with programmed setting and allow some change in treatment parameters, what is lacking is knowing how much energy is actually delivered depending on your skin thickness and tissue resistance.
The Genius RF system is the only system to date to measure energy delivery feedback in real time. It constantly fine tunes and makes adjustment that is individualised to your unique skin resistance and resistance with every pulse.
- Precise energy delivery with every pulse
- Intelligent feedback system so you are not over-treated or under-treated.
- Treatments are optimised for age, skin type, skin thickness, anatomical area and other variables.
- Excellent comfort, recovery and safety profile
How Is The Genius Skin Resurfacing Procedure Like?
After a consultation and assessment to make sure you are fit for the procedure, your skin is cleansed and numbing cream is applied.
Genius treatments are well tolerated in most individuals as each pulse is delivered precisely into your skin.
The Genius skin resurfacing treatment is ideal for individuals with mild to moderate skin laxity who are looking for modest and natural looking results.
As the Genius treatment bypasses the epidermis of the skin and delivers precise energy to the dermis, it is safer in individuals in darker skin types where conventional laser systems may be a concern. While post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation is common in fractional ablative laser systems, this is less so with the Genius treatment.
A numbing cream is applied prior to your Genius skin resurfacing treatment to optimise your comfort. The procedure is well-tolerated in most individuals undergoing the procedure.
There will be some redness and swelling that subsides within 5-7 days. On occasion, there may be some tiny needle marks which typically fade in a few weeks.
You should avoid direct exposure to sunlight, avoid harsh facial products and maintain good hygiene post procedure.
Collagen and elastin stimulation, remodelling and strengthening of the skin takes place over months. Although not immediate, you will notice a natural improvement and rejuvenation of your skin tone and texture in about 6 months.
Depending on your skin type, degree of skin laxity and general skin condition, most individuals require several treatments for optimal results.
Expect results to last about 2 years. Maintenance treatment sessions done yearly helps to restore collagen levels.
