Full-Body Genius™ Microneedling and Radio Frequency Treatment
The Genius™ microneedling and Radio Frequency device now offers full-body treatments with its new body tips! From tightening the neck and jawline to firming inner arms, thighs, and abdomen, the Genius™ device is ideal for stimulating new collagen in many areas of the body that need it most!
How Does Microneedling-RF Work?
First, Dr. Sunny Walia will use the microneedling component of the device to create precise coagulation zones into the skin through the introduction of sleek, smooth and well defined needles. These zones are also called “dermal wounds,” which are purposeful and controlled punctures that release inflammatory mediators into the skin. These “wounds” also serve as a delivery channel for the radiofrequency heat energy that is simultaneously delivered during the treatment to allow for the growth of one’s own collagen and elastin.
With these two mechanisms now in one platform, both neocollagenesis and neoelastogenesis can be achieved in the areas treated with minimal damage to surrounding tissue. Depending on the size of the treated area, the treatment can take anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour.
What Can the Genius™ Microneedling Treatment Fix?
The new Genius™ tips offer skin tightening and rejuvenation to almost any area of the body.
The Genius™ treatment may treat:
- Face and jowls
- Neck and chest area
- Cheek lines and facial wrinkles
- Acne and surgical scars
- Pore size
- Inner arms
- Inner thighs
- Abdomen area
How Many Microneedling Treatments Do I Need?
The number of treatments needed depends on the affected area/s. However, Dr. Sunny Walia typically recommends three treatments at a minimum of 6 week intervals.
This procedure is also highly effective as a preventative anti-aging device for younger patients who wish to be proactive. Coupling this device with topical skin care is recommended for optimal results. Younger patients who would like this treatment as a preventative anti-aging measure usually only need one treatment, with maintenance treatments as needed.
The Genius™ device may be combined with other treatments that we offer at the Aesthetic and Dermatology Center. Patients interested in treatments for facial sun damage and sunspots, uneven skin tone from melasma, or precancerous lesions such as actinic keratosis may be interested in the Total Skin Solution™, which is a combination treatment of both the Genius™ device and the LaseMD™ nonablative fractional laser.
