Genius Skin Resurfacing
Delivering safe and effective treatments to induce collagen and dermal remodelling.
Genius is a FDA-approved skin resurfacing treatment to stimulate collagen to improve scars, pores and skin texture.
what is Genius skin resurfacing?
The Genius skin resurfacing is FDA-approved and uses combination advanced Radiofrequency and Microneedle technology to rejuvenate and tighten your skin from within.
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 DR.NG uses genius
With specific protocols tailored to your skin type and concerns, Dr. Ng recommends microneedle radiofrequency treatments for patients who want to restore their skin naturally. With over a decade of using various fractional microneedling RF devices, Dr Ng. is experienced with the different skin conditions, skin types and indications to help rejuvenate and revitalise your skin.
benefits of genius
By delivering precise energy into your skin, wound healing will lead to dermal remodelling. Over months, this leads to an increase in collagen, elastin and improved skin texture and lifting naturally over time.
Advances in technology means that treatments can be carried out safely in all skin types. Through the action of the non-insulated microneedles, your epidermis is largely unscathed with the treatment. Dr. Ng is adept at treating patients with darker skin tones to delivering safe and natural looking results.
Unlike ablative laser systems that is associated with prolonged redness and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, the risk is minimised with microneedling radiofrequency technology.
Improvement of areas of concern such as:
- Peri-orbital region and Under eye
- Nasolabial folds
With a patient-tailored multimodal approach, Dr. Ng believes in combating the multiple signs of ageing safely and effectively. When you feel as good as you look, you raise your self-esteem and quality of life.
The proprietary AI-assisted technology is able to deliver energy safely and appropriately by measuring tissue resistance that varies across individuals.
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
- Post pregancy abdominal skin laxity
- Elbows and Knee
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.
what other conditions can genius treat?
Skin ageing is due to both intrinsic and extrinsic factors; leading to skin wrinkles, pigmentration, skin laxity and rough skin texture. Radiofrequency microneedling stimulates collagen and elastin, resulting in improved skin tightening, reduced roughness, and more uniform pigmentation. Results are more lasting when compared to botulinum toxin injections. When compared to lasers, microneedle radiofrequency showed better improvement to the nasolabial folds, perioral, jawline and neck wrinkles.
Radiofrequency microneedling is believed to destroy sebaceous glands to reduce its activity and stimulate remodeling of follicular epithelium and dermis. Several studies have shown that it reduces acne severity and prevents longer term acne recurrence. When compared to laser, microneedle RF treatments have lesser risk of pigmentation, reduced downtime and pain scores.
Axillary hyperhidrosis is a distressing disorder of excessive perspiration. Radiofrequency microneedling delivers RF to the dermis to destroy eccrine sweat glands and reduce hyperhidrosis.
Stretch marks are linear dermal scars caused by progressive stretching of the skin’s underlying connective tissue. They first present as red linear patches (striae rubra), then atrophic white patches (striae alba) in later stages, with the latter being more resistant to treatment. Radiofrequency microneedling is safe and effective at treating stretch marks, with lower down time and pain scores.
Rosacea is a chronic inflammatory disease of the sebaceous glands that presents as persistent facial erythema, flushing, and occasionally, papulopustular lesions. Improvements in rosacea from radiofrequency microneedling may be due to a reduction in inflammation, blood vessels and dermal remodelling.
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.
